    The strike aircraft will be a modified ELAL Boeing 747 that will follow a designated IATA route to either Taskent or Beijing in early January 2012. The aircraft manefest will not be pasengers however but have instead underwing mounted stealth gliders - at least two - which have a glide range of three hundred kilometers. Each glider will cay one dirty / crude atomic bomb. The gliders will be guided via satellite positioning to the primary Iranian nuclear weapons production facility and detonated at ground level. A catastrophic nuclear accident, one that kills most of the Iranian scientists involved in this program , has occurred. Many more are expexted to die from radition sickness. In light of the "accident" the ELAL flight returns to Israel. "Passengers" recount how terrifying it was to be so near that they could "see the reflection in the sky from the blast." The Iranian leaders will claim it has been attacked by the "Zionist entity." But IAEC personnel who afterwards investigate the blast site reinforce world opinion that because it was a dirty high-level radiation explosion its signature was in keeping with an atomic weapons technology the Iran nuclear program was capable of producing. The State of Israel has bought the world safety from a nuclear threat in the hands of a terrorist regime just as it did once before in a place called Osirak. L'chaim.
