Navy wants Piece of the Action, too

Ahead of a possible Israeli strike on the Iranian nuclear program, the Navy is now throwing its head in the ring:
Submarines may be used for hitting strategic targets outside Israel's territory, chief commander of the IDF's submarine fleet, Colonel Yoni, stated. "The submarine task force is preparing for any scenario the State of Israel has defined as plausible for the army," he added.

According to him, "hitting strategic targets is not always a task the Air Force or the infantry can carry out… a submarine can perform the mission, and it can also be used only for collecting intelligence and securing the forces about to carry out such a mission."
I tend to agree with one commentator: "How bout leaving som element of surprise? Zahal blabs 2 much."
