Well Dah, of course they won't because they're a peace loving nation, unlike the US and Israel.

I've read about all those recent threats coming out of Iran, but as I understand it, those threats are in direct retaliation for a preemptive strike by Israel on Iranian soil, and as of now the Iranians have not committed any violation of international law, but if by any chance Israel attacks Iran it would constitute an act of war, and Iran would have the right to defend itself with all means at it's disposal.
What would happen if, let's say, the Mexican air-force crossed over into the US and bombed your peaceful nuclear facilities?

I think I can address this question, hopefully to your satisfaction super grover, and first let me say that I appreciate your staying civil and not resorting to stupid name calling like many other morons on this forum, you are a gentleman or is it gentlewoman?
Anyway, I don't think Israel has any reason to be paranoid, I suspect Israel is hyping this false scenario of Iran attacking them for their own agenda, probably to keep it's own citizens continuously on edge with fear of foreign attack instead of them concentrating on the domestic problems affecting Israel.
Iran does not have a history of invading or attacking other countries.

OK Iran probably has supported, what the US and Israel has labeled terrorist organisations like Hezbollah, but then I distinctly remember the US supporting a terrorist group in Nicaragua called the Contras, against a duly elected government. The Sandinista electoral victory being declared "free, fair, and hotly contested" the United States continued its proxy war against the nation.
In 1984, the Sandinista government filed a suit in the

International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the United States (Nicaragua v. United States), which resulted in a 1986 judgment against the United States.

Now how is Iran's support for Hezbollah any different from the US's support of terrorists.

No Israel has no reason to fear Iran, in fact the Supreme Leader and the president of Iran have repeatedly said that they have no intention of attacking Israel preemptively ever.
The only thing that they can be accused of is arrogance and having a loud mouth, but I have a feeling that all the huff, puff, and bluff coming out of Iran is designed to drive up the barrel of oil price.
I speak as someone that actually knows what he's talking about, since I have relatives in Iran, and have travelled extensively throughout Iran.

I love the way you just make up this ignorant nonsense with no proof what-so-ever dummy!! Do some thinking for a change!! Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has been one of the worldÂ’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!!

You have relatives in Iran?? Now wonder you lie!! what interfering, we've had no diplomatic relations with Iran since 79
unlike u euros.
For example, Sweden has been a supplier of arms to the Ayatollah in Tehran. Sweden is neutral in the war between Iran and Iraq -- officially. But its trade account certainly favors the Iranians. In the three years after Palme took office (for the second time) in 1982, Sweden concluded oil deals with Iran amounting to nearly $ 200 million, while buying almost no oil from Iraq.
What did Iran get in return? Consumer goods -- more than $ 500 million worth in 1984 alone -- and arms. Swedish arms producers -- mainly Bofors -- were providing Iran with nearly 1,000 RBS-70 antiaircraft missiles, among other items.
Legally, Swedish companies are forbidden to export arms to areas enmeshed in armed conflict or human rights violations. But such laws are for public relations. The Bofors RBS-70 missiles, for example, were routed to the Middle East through two Singapore companies, Allied Ordinance of Singapore (AOS) and Unicorn International. AOS is partly owned by Sheng Li Holding Co., the Singapore Defense Ministry's investment company, and by Bofors.
Here's a twist: According to Sweden's Bureau of Statistics, Singapore, whose defense requirements are modest, was Sweden's biggest weapons customer between 1977 and 1986. It bought $ 1.4 billion worth of armaments, or almost 11% of all Swedish arms exports during the period.
Missiles are only a part of the story. In 1983, when Palme was prime minister, Sweden's shipbuilding firm of Boghammer Marin delivered some 40 speedboats to the Iranian coast guard, an order reportedly worth around $ 9.5 billion. The boats, capable of speeds up to 50 knots, have been used by the Iranian Pasdaran, or Revolutionary Guards, to attack oil tankers and other shipping in the Gulf (including Swedish-owned supertankers). These boats are now a threat to U.S. Navy ships patrolling the Persian Gulf. Sweden's War Materials Inspectorate is currently investigating charges that these speedboats were modified for military use by Boghammer Marin before deliveries to Iran.
More than 400 tons of explosives were sold to Iran by Sweden's Nobel Kemi company in the last three years through Austria, Italy, Yugoslavia and Bulgaria, according to Swedish Customs, who say that the company made $ 67 million on this deal.
Nobel Kemi, like Bofors, is a subsidiary of Nobel Industries, founded by Alfred Nobel. According to Stig Age, a public prosecutor in Orebro, up to 35% of Nobel Kemi's production during this period may have been diverted to illegal operations, including Iran. Earlier this year the managing director of Bofors, Martin Ardbo, resigned in the wake of suspicions over exports to the Middle East via Singapore.
Evil capitalists defying the law in the interests of profits? Hardly. Avowed socialist Olof Palme was involved in the deals up to his armpits.
Not that Sweden is alone among European countries in condemning the Iranians in public while privately helping to arm them. According to the Stockholm International Peach Research Institute (SIPRI) and the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, 53 countries supplied weapons or military equipment to Iran or Iraq between 1980 and 1986, and 27 of these countries have sold arms to both sides. Chris Smith, of Britain's University of Sussex, says that at least half of Western Europe's total annual production of 100,000 tons of ammunition is bought by Iran, mostly through middlemen in London, Geneva, Vienna, Paris, Hamburg and Amsterdam.

thank you for your input it is mr super grover and it sounds like you know what your talking about but when countrys support org like hezbollah and or the us support of certaint groups then mere huff and puff as you say has a whole new meaning yes iran has a loud mouth but a threat is a threat nonetheless and when it comes down to it our world our system has failed so yes there will be war i wish it wasnt so things are muc deeper than a relgion disagreement right now the middle east and africa are the ones that bleed but the thruth be told the whole world is feeling the pain more and more each day
