Most people have a weird fascination with shark and love testing them out in the cold frigid waters.
Shark attacks are relatively rare. Statistically speaking, you are far more likely to get struck by lightning than you are to be attacked by a shark. 400 people per year get struck by lightning, according to the NOAA website, and 58 of those are fatal, on average. Only 60 people on average are attacked by sharks each year, and the death rate is about 10.
This video highlights the deadliest shark attack scenes. Parental Guidance is advised Children under 18 should not be watching this without parental supervision.
In 1963, a freestyle diver named Rodney Fox, was taking part in a spear-fishing competition off the South Australian coast. While diving without oxygen, Fox had a deadly encounter with a great white shark. Fox fought the shark hard, getting free at one point and having the shark return to bite him again. Fox then wrapped his arms around the beast and was taken on horrifying ride under the sea as the shark tried to shake him off. The shark had Fox’s arm in his mouth, and when he pulled the arm out, his skin was shredded from the bone.

Recent reports have shown Israel’s willingness to strike Iran by Christmas. Iran is one of the most serious threats to stability in the Middle East and the world and the means and motive to strike Israel. American and Israeli intelligence agree that the Islamic regime in Iran will be able to complete a nuclear weapon within five years. They already have 1800 kg of uranium which is enough to build 1 or more bombs. This article examines the reasons why these statements are false and Israel will not strike.
Iran is dangerous and it could strike with its stash of missiles. Israel already saw what it was capable of during the Gaza Strip war in 2008/2009 and the Lebanese War in 2006. No one can predict Iran’s moves in response.
2. German proverb
According to a German proverb, attacks that are announced in advance do not actually occur. Why would Israel tell Iran a month ahead of time, knowing the latter could strike at them before? It just does not make sense.
The Diplomat examines Barack Obama’s need for support from Evangelical and Jewish supporters in his country. This however is still up in the air as there is no guarantee of support for a unilateral attack.
This also could be a ploy to scare Iran. Israel may try to scare the government into stopping the nuclear program. Highly unlikely, but worth a try.
5. Management going crazy:
Israel has used this tactic before. They have acted as if they were going crazy. They want Iran to think that they are not listening to the United States and that they want to bomb Iran. This may be the reason why no one is taking them seriously.
