In June of 1967 the Arabs had gathered together with the common goal of driving
Israel into the sea. They vastly outnumbered Israel men, tanks, airplanes,
artillery, and had them surrounded on all sides but the sea. In the Six Day war
that followed the Arabs were beaten, humiliated, and began to plead for a cease
fire as they fled. And no, Israel didn't need any help from the USA in
achieving their victory.Now Iran is doomed to learn the same lesson
all over again.
If Israel believes Iran would destroy it once it gets nuclear weapons,I
would be surprised if it didn't do all in its power to ensure itdoesn't happen. Given that manufacturing facilities are easilyhidden, I'm not sure what can be done unless we/Israel isListening
to their governments every move.Assuming we/Israel have knowledge of
where the facilities arelocated, they quite likely are buried such that
nothing shortof either a ground invasion or successive nuclear blastscould take them out.
WHAT NOW?Saint George, UT"...Israel's more limited
munitions...".Israel has an arsenal of at least 200 nukes.Limited munitions?"According to the movie Obama 2016,
Israel has less than 100 nukes, not 200. Doesn't matter how many they have
though. If they use just one, that's enough to plunge the world into
To Hutterite:You can't possible be that naive. can you? If
Israel attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, there will be a war. It will
make it impossible for even Obama to ignore. Obama has demonstrated anything
but "wisdom" with regard to this issue. The only thing that could
prevent a war is for the US to step in and do what it should have done a long
time ago. The only way we avoid the war you think will be avoided if Obama
ignores the threat is if the people of the USA vote him out of office before
it's too late. Israel will attack if it believes it has no other choice.
Count on it. Their history over the past 40 years tells us that. You scare me, Hutterite. People who are that horribly misinformed are a real
danger in the voting booth.
"...Israel's more limited munitions...".Israel has an
arsenal of at least 200 nukes.Limited munitions?
You're just making it clear that a vote for Mitt is a vote for war. There is enough unnaccounted for uranium to make 150 atomic bombs. Iran
isn't our greatest threat. Republicans just like the idea of another large
scale intervention they can make money from. Israel - stand on your
own. Get along with your neighbors for once.
If we do decide to engage our troops in Iran, how will we pay for it.Will the GOP insist on cutting spending elsewhere? OrWill we raise taxes in order to pay for itOrWill we
just borrow from China and increase our deficits.What say you on the
We didn't learn a thing from Adolf Hitler. You cannot compromise with those
who tell you upfront what their true intentions are. If a person buys a gun and
tells everyone they are going to shoot someone you either disarm them or they
will shoot that person.
Hopefully obama has the skill and wisdom to tell Israel they're going it
alone. We don't need another war. Either that, or please let that fiasco be
a legacy of a romney administration.
I doubt Obama will take a firm stand against Iran. He has proven himself to be
no ally to Israel, favoring the Palestinians instead. Even if he did take a
stand he wouldn't have the backbone to follow through on it.
