Air Strike at Osirak
By John T. Correll

Iraq’s nuclear reactor was about to go hot. If the Israelis were going to take action, it had to be soon.

Rumors have been circulating for years that Israel was getting ready to launch a pre-emptive attack on Iran’s emerging nuclear weapons capability. The speculation intensified as Iran prepared to move its uranium enrichment plant into a hardened mountain bunker. Iran continued to resist diplomatic and economic pressures to cease its quest for an atomic bomb.
