Israel prepping for war with Iran?
Jewish state orders military fuel from U.S. Defense Department
By Jerome R. Corsi
Increasing speculation it may be preparing for a military assault on Iran or a regional war involving Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, Israel has placed its largest order of military fuel with the United States on record.
The Jewish state, earlier this month, ordered 284 million gallons of JP-8 aviation jet fuel, 100 million gallons of diesel fuel and 60 million gallons of unleaded gasoline – all suitable for military uses – at an estimated cost of $2 billion.
“It would be inappropriate for us to comment about what actions Israel may take or how they will use their fuel,” Marine Corps Major Chris Perrine, a public affairs officer at the Department of Defense, told WND. “I would note, however, that it would take a lot more than fuel to attack a country or wage a regional war.”
