Israel planning to nuke Iran?

Oh goody, here we go:

"ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.

Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources."... "As soon as the green light is given, it will be one mission, one strike and the Iranian nuclear project will be demolished.”

There's always a chance that this story might just be bullshit, but I don't know -- Israel's been talking about doing this for 2 years. If it's true, and Israel does it, how will Ahmadinejad react? Because he doesn't seem like the kind of guy to just roll over and take it. The Israelis did it to Saddam back in 1981, but he was already at war with Iran, there was SFA he could do. Who knows what Iran would do? Not to mention all their buddies in Syria, Lebanon and Shia Iraq.

Is it just me, or is the world getting really stupid really fast?
