The author of the report—Professor Paul Rogers, a professor of peace studies at the University of Bradford—addresses suggestions that the mission exceeds the capabilities of the Israeli military, concluding that, “Long-range strike aircraft acquired from the United States, combined with an improved fleet of tanker aircraft, the deployment of long-range drones and the probable availability of support facilities in northeast Iraq and Azerbaijan, all increase Israel's potential for action against Iran.”
Rogers told The Media Line that it is possible that Israel could begin the action without tacit approval from the Obama administration. The report agreed with assessments that Iran is capable of producing a nuclear bomb within the next several years.
