Israel is ready attack the evil apocalyptic Iranian regimes and its nukes because Israel cannot be the first one to be hit by Iranian nukes.
Israel realized that Barack Obama who confessed to the Islamic world that he was a son of the Odinga Obama Luo tribe who was educated in radical Islamic Madrassas in Kenya and Indonesia is anti-American president cheat who brought to power as a crook with the support of Iranian regime and Hamas.
Israel realized that the African Muslim Barack Obama is supporting the Iranian nukes and the Islamic terrorists of Hamas and Hezbollah as the new Islamic leader of the world.
The Jews in Israel cannot trust US as their ally like during Bush years since Obama support the Iranian regime and keeps lying to the Jews whom he pressures to sacrifice their security and future as Jewish State for the Islamic world and converting Israel and Jerusalem to the new capital of the Islamic world under Iranian regime.
Israel will defeat the Iranian regime only to save the lives of the Jews that are in danger, destroying the Iranian nukes and dirty bombs facilities of the evil Iranian regime that seek new holocaust of the Jews.
Nevertheless, the self hating left wing liberal Democrat Jews in America led by the anti Semitic George Soros and by the self hating ‘dead fish’ fear monger former Israeli Rahm Emanuel support the Obama anti-Jewish Muslim regime and the Iranian regime's nukes, as they keep back stabbing the Jews in Israel in the back.

My first reaction is, on what moral grounds is Israel justified in launching a military attack on Iran?

Has Iran ever attacked Israel? No, it hasn't. The current Iranian president has made some racially inflammatory remarks, sure. But is that grounds for war?

Furthermore, do we really know for sure that Iran is processing weapons grade fissionable material? We don't need another ficticious-WMD facilitated act of aggression.

Well, we are in the free world have at least a billion infidel. Surely we can afford to lose a few million infidels as a contribution to help them to get their paradise virgin girls. It is not a big deal.

I think after a while it has become boring to hear empty, unfounded, and not universally supported words that are inspired by people who feel unjustifiably threatened and angrily revengeful. Israel has atomic stock, and should not be afraid by no means. The only sustainable road ahead of Israel is to attempt to promote peace with its negihbors, stand for human rights and to become a role model in the middle east.

The more logical question is how will Israel bomb Iran?
Lets look at this as a military exercise. Some point out to the maneuver in the mediterranean as a point or the resent bombing of a convoy in sudan, in both cases Israel used refuelling in air for the operations in one case over midetranian in another over Egypt with their approval in both cases they needed to refuel in order to do this in neither case did they have to operate in a hostile situation.
To get to Iran Israel needs to fly over at least two counties and also refuel over at least one and these counties are or can be any one of Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey. What are the likelihood of any one of these counties either giving passage or refueling to the Israeli planes?
Once reaching Iran those planes would be in a hostile environment, they need another 500 or up to 1000 kilometers to reach their targets and then get back they will be attacked from air and ground and they would to look for up to 80 targets.
So the question again is how many planes does Israel need for this operation?
how will it get them there and back?
how many refueling planes does it need to support this attack?
Where will they refuel?
These are major obstacles in front of Israel for this operation with out even talking about the likelihood of its success and then the day after.
This is nothing but a flight of fantasy?

Even if Israelis overcome all these logistical problems still they cannot cause any damage because Iranians have a good air defence system. Israel has only one choice; which is to use atomic means. But this is too bad for the region. The solution is that the free world shouldn’t let Israelis to take any action. But the free world should find away to neutralise Iran as a threat against any one on the long run.

Israel is on a hit list. The reason it still stands is because it is more powerful then its rivals and because America has always been faithful to her. If Iran becomes nuclear it plans to make Israel a nuclear waste land. Their leader has said as much in interviews and in his controlled papers and media. Israel will have no choice. Obama allowing Iran to gain these weapons is his way of allowing this whole thing to esculate. Iran must not become nuclear. If they do then my heart is with Israel. If Israel no longer stands (the land of our Christian heritage) then what will the fanatics do to Mecca? Can't you see what will happen. Iran bombs Israel, Christians and Israel take out Mecca. Israel bombs Iran the Islamic's bomb Israel and then Israel and the Christians take out Mecca. The only thing that can be done is not to allow Iran to get the damnable bomb in the first place! America what have you done! Obama? Obama? God help us all.

Like they waited for someone else to bomb Iraqs Nuke plant in 1981. I don't think so, if they don't bomb it will be purely political as the US is desperately trying to reconnect with Iran, sorry to say.

Nobody should nuke anybody. It's insane.

If any country in the mideast nuked another mideast country, the radiation from the bomb could come back on the country that sent it. Who won the war then?

Based on Iran's military is so much more stronger than Iraq's was then, Iran is much further away from Iraq, the nuclear sits are about 80 compared to Iraq's one, at the time Iraq was at war with Iran its attention was to the East which made the attack from west easier, we can get in more technical details but those alone make the whole situation different.

Uh, the forever soiling of planet by
Ray-Dee-Ay-Shuun.

No, once an atom has decayed it changes and cannot emit that radiation again. EVER.

Nobody should nuke anybody. BUT, folklore and envirofascist phantasies have no place in a debate on nuclear industry - civilian or military.

The hell with the Israelis. They've dragged us
into their personal conflict with the Muslim world. They're not worth all the danger they've put us in.

I agree, the boys in the war rooms, are working-up these scenarios like playing a video game...

I believe that Israel is bluffing, I really do...
I think that when push comes to shove, they will cut a deal, to do otherwise is shear folly, the only real friend they have is the U.S., but the U.S. will give them up long before the U.S. gets sucked into a real-war that they are unprepared to fight...

The U.S. can only back Israel covertly; to do it openly would trigger reprisals beyond belief...

I say Iran should Nuke or otherwise attack Israel. Though it must be vicious and brutal, you know women and children kind of stuff. The world would become so incensed that the entirety of the Western World would seize Iran (the country and its remaining citizens) and any of its partners in crime, and then viola no more high priced oil. Yea we win!
