The United States gross incompetence in Afghanistan gifted the Taliban a military airport the size of a large town containing $83 billion of the finest military equipment that included hundreds of aircraft.
We have already seen the Taliban gruesomely using Black Hawk helicopters to dangle hanging men as they flew over Afghan towns as a warning to the citizens below.
So for what other evil purpose can they devise for the use of this American treasure trove?
A C130 US military transport plane packed with explosives crashing into a tightly populated urban city would have the same devastating effect as a nuclear explosion. It would be a world shattering statement by a messianic terror organization akin to 9/11 that they enabled Al-Qaeda to execute twenty years ago.
It would have to be a crazy terrorist organization on a martyrdom mission. The Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS are all messianic jihadists with a deadly hatred of the West, and Israel.
The Taliban now possess four giant American C130 military transport planes.
Just pack a monster-size aircraft full of explosive material and fly it to its target, or targets.
No need for a fuel supply for the return flight. This would be a one-way mission.
But would a jihadi martyrdom group try to crash an explosive-packed transport plane into an American city?
It would certainly be a tempting target. Sweeping in over the Atlantic to hit New York in another 9/11 style attack must be tempting. They won’t have to hijack a commercial plane. They have their own, thanks to Biden and his military generals.
There is only one problem. The C130 can fly to America from Bagram without refueling but not with a packed payload of explosive material, and there are not many options for the Taliban for refueling. Apart from Iran, no other country would give them landing rights, and the element of surpise could be lost on the long distant leg over the Atlantic.
So what other country would present a huge and attractive target for the Taliban, or one of its Afghan-based jihadi allies, to attack?
Israel, the one country in the world the Taliban doesn’t recognize. What better Islamic message would it send if it, and not Iran, obliterated the Jewish State.
Coming in undetected and crashing into Tel Aviv with a population of over four million would make 9/11 look like child’s play.
With three planes they succeeded in killing 3,000 Americans. With one or two planes they could kill millions of Jews.
Apart from mass deaths and casualties, an attack on Tel Aviv would knock out sensitive infrastructure including power grids, communication and transport systems. It would destroy Israel’s central military command and control center and vital military defense facilities. Depending on its impact location, it could destroy Israel’s major Ben Gurion Airport.
Such a 9/11 style attack, setting out from Bagram airfield and coordinated with Iran, could be an Israel Doomsday scenario particularly if two planes were employed in the deadly mission.
A second plane targeting Haifa would have a devastating effect. Although the population of Haifa is far fewer than Tel Aviv, just over a million people, it also houses chemical storage facilities that, for years should have been removed to safer locations. A packed plane exploding a large chemical storage plant would indeed produce a mushroom cloud akin to a nuclear blast making the Beirut port blast looks miniscule in proportion.
Whatever remains of Israel would be dangerously exposed to any enemy wanting to move in for the final kill, and we have them in large numbers on our northern, southern and eastern borders.
Is such a nightmare scenario possible?
This is an existential threat that Israel must solve, and quickly. Before 9/11 comes to Israel.
