I love the way you two dummies just make up this ignorant nonsense with no proof what-so-ever dummy!! Do some thinking for a change morons!! Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has been one of the world’s most active sponsors of terrorism. Tehran has armed, trained, financed, inspired, organized, and otherwise supported dozens of violent groups over the years. Iran has backed not only groups in its Persian Gulf neighborhood, but also terrorists and radicals in Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, Bosnia, the Philippines, and elsewhere. This support remains strong even today as Iran is tied to an array of radical groups in Iraq. Iran has publically Threatened Preemptive Strikes Against Israel and United States!! To sit there and not think for one minute that Iran would not pass on nuclear technology to terrorists, you'd have to be brain dead!!
No one can guarantee this will not happen, not even you! So do we gamble like we did Hitler and Nazi Party and presume they want to live in peace or do we wait and hope we all don't wake up someday to find terrorists using nukes supplied to them by Iran! Many countries including Pakistan and Israel have had nukes for decades and have never threatened publically the destruction of another country. The Six Day War started with threats and movement of troops to all the borders surrounding Israel!! Should Israel have waited for her destruction. NO! And neither should any other country!!

Would you be so polite as to point out the Article and Section in the United States Constitution that authorizes the POTUS to use our military in a war of preemptive aggression?

The War Powers Act does exactly that. The real failure is Congress' not acting to halt such action by budgetary means.

16 US intelligence agencies have clearly stated that Iran's nuclear program is not producing weapons grade uranium and is no threat to the US.

On the other hand, Israel's nuclear program does produce weapons grade uranium and US intelligence agencies have estimated that Israel has 200-400 nuclear bombs, including portable suitcase bombs, as well as a deadly arsenal of various chemical weapons. Further, Israel has threatened to use the "Samson option", i.e. nuclear attacks on ME countries, Europe and the UK IF it ever feels threatened.

Obviously, it is psychopathic Israel which is the clear and present danger to millions of US citizens living abroad in countries Israel has targeted for nuclear attacks as well as the US's vital economic interests in those countries and NOT Iran.

To which agencies would you be referring? I did a quick check and can’t find a single case to support your statement.
On the other hand, Israel has never threatened to wipe another country from the face of the earth.
If it is obvious to you that Israel is a “clear and present danger to millions of US citizens”, then say so. Say “it is obvious to me”, because it is not obvious to others. Some people, myself included, believe that Iran, and to a slightly lesser extent Syria, is the major impediment to peace in the Middle East.

Israel's "Samson Option"

Some have written about the "Samson Option" as a retaliation strategy. In 2002, the Los Angeles Times published an opinion piece by Louisiana State University professor David Perlmutter which has been seen as justifying a Samson Option approach. He wrote:

"Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in the past, and they have ensured against it. Masada was not an example to follow—it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza? What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the world either cackles or looks away—unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans—have the power to destroy the world. The ultimate justice?"

In 2003, Martin van Creveld thought that the Al-Aqsa Intifada then in progress threatened Israel's existence.[21] Van Creveld was quoted in David Hirst's "The Gun and the Olive Branch" (2003) as saying:

"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan:'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.' I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

Ron Rosenbaum writes in his 2012 book How the End Begins: The Road to a Nuclear World War III that in the "aftermath of a second Holocaust" Israel's surviving Dophin-class nuclear missile submarines would retaliate not only against Israel's attackers, but "bring down the pillars of the world (attack Moscow and European capitals for instance)" as well as the "holy places of Islam." He writes that "abandonment of proportionality is the essence" of the Samson Option.

In 2012, Israeli poet and Holocaust survivor Itamar Yaoz-Kest published a poem entitled "The Right to Exist: "If you force us yet again to descend from the face of the Earth to the depths of the Earth – let the Earth roll toward the Nothingness." This is seen as referring to the Samson Option which is the strategy floated by Ariel Sharon and others of using Israel's nuclear weapons, possibly damaging the entire world, if Israel faces annihilation.-- Wikipedia

My question was to which 16 agencies were you referring? Are they U.S. agencies, religious agencies, talent agencies? Give me more than "16 agencies". And no. I won't believe everything I find on a Google search. I like to get a few different views before formulating one of my own. I won't accept "facts" from an Anti-Semitic website any more than I would from a Pro-Israeli one.

I provided you with links to MILLIONS of articles on Israel's threat to wipe out countries as punishment for not supporting its goals and the 16 US intelligence agencies who have clearly stated Iran is not a threat to the US as well. Pick a few that suit you and read them. Educate yourself. The truth will set you free.....

No, YOU educate me. You're the one who said "16 US intelligence agencies" have "clearly stated Iran is not a threat to the US". Now, put one of them on the screen. Just one. If it's true, I'd love to know.
I don't jump to sites just because you put them in your posts. I know they'll tell me exactly what you do. What I'd like to hear are YOUR thoughts. Oh, and the name of one of those mystery agencies.
