Report: US Strikes on Iran Would Risk Major War

There are 171 comments on the ABC News story from Sep 12, 2012, titled Report: US Strikes on Iran Would Risk Major War. In it, ABC News reports that:

U.S. military strikes on Iran would shake the regime's political control and damage its ability to launch counterstrikes, but the Iranians probably would manage to retaliate, directly and through surrogates, in ways that risked igniting all-out war in the Middle East, according to an assessment of an attack's costs and benefits.

What's another war to us anyway. This time let's go for all the marbles!
Every billion dollars spent now after the 16 trillion in debt might as well be spent having politicians go to maternity wards all over the U.S. and kicking babies (but not the Chinese ones since we're borrowing the money from China, that wouldn't be nice) in the head whilst shouting, "hope you liked it!".

Oh surrrrre!! Hey El Sicko!! What's the world going to do, not just Israel and Jews you clowns hate so much if Iran gives a nuke to terrorists scumbags dumbazz! And when those terrorists get a nuke from Iran and set it off in Poland you clowns will be flying up in burst of flames screaming "LONG LIVE PRESIDENT MAHMOUD AHMADINNERJACKET!! Iran is the only country since Nazi germany that actually threatened to wipe out another country (Israel) FURHTERMORE, Stop trying to portray Iran to look like a peace loving nation DUMMY!! Do some thinking for a change clown!! 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!!

Considering the unrest in the Middle East, I don't think it would just be Iranians involved.
Any kind of war using everything but nukes then. Israel would stomp Iran down - like crushing a grape under their feet.

I beleive it was 1964? Israel took on Iran, Egypt, Seria and a few others - all at the same time - And Israel crushed them all. Today, they are even more powerful - not less.

This more than anything else is why muslims hate Israel. Because they got their asses kicked by a neighbor who was just defending themselves.

Looks like the pro Israel lobby have gotten a little bit confused.

I thought your aim was to let Israel steal as much land as they could and persecute as many arabs as they could?

Instead it seems you now want to destroy Israel.

You see in the real world, if Israel attacks nuclear reactors in Iran and irradiates the entire area, Iran (or any of the other nations caught in the fallout) will do the exact same thing back to Israel.

Sadly for Israel the country is too small for any of it to still be habitable after that.

Still, it would probably make things a lot safer for us in the west.

I think it's safe to say that since Israel beat Egypt, Syria and Jordan all at the same time, they should be able to brush Iran aside without too much trouble.

Gee...DO YA THINK?

What a morally dysfunctional over consuming society we have become since the the federal reserve set up shop here in 1913.

Now Uncle Ben's wild green rice is gonna print even more money making the dollar worth even less and put our national security further at risk.

Bernanke believes if we don't print more money our economy will go over the cliff. In fact that's what he's been 'threatening' congress with since claiming we 'must' bailout the 'private' banks or the economy will collapse. So when IS the right time we are to take our medicine?

You can thank both sides for repealing the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 leading us to Barney's big fannie with freddie and the tech bubble. Not to mention the housing bubble that really hasn't even burst yet.

It is also well past the point in time where we need to stop giving out money not only to Israel, but all Middle East nations and fix the problems we have here at home. It is time for Israel to be sovereign from our govt, military, and financial institutions.

Someone better figure out a solution here pretty soon and as far as I'm concerned Ron Paul is spot on to the direction we should be taking and it is called fiscal responsibility.
Time to abolish the federal reserve and let the chips fall where they may because ultimately and in the long run it will be the best thing this country did domestically in a very long time.

While we are at it we might as well take a look into Fort Knox and see how much gold is really there.
Wouldn't that be something.

OOOPS!

Who is this "WE" you're brazenly babbling about?

Is "WE" going to drop the Hasbara B.S. sign up and get mangled,, mutilated Burned and Traumatized or is "WE" gonna keep Preying on LOYAL Americans.

Why doesn't "WE" take its Traitorous ass back to the only successful Nazi colony in the world?

Zionism & Nazism are/were identical in brutality, bigotry and aggression...

....only Zionists Exceed in slimy deception schemes and Parasitism...

That's what YOU'RE sent to America to do....Extract MORE American Blood and Resources for America's nasty, little Nazi Colony:

“Shamir proposes an alliance with the Nazis”
http://www.wrmea.com/jews_for_justice/holocau...

EXCERPT "As late as 1941, the Zionist group LEHI, one of whose leaders, Yitzhak Shamir, was later to become a prime minister of Israel, approached the Nazis, using the name of its parent organization, the Irgun(NMO)...

[The proposal stated:]'The establishment of the historical Jewish state on a national and totalitarian Pd bound by a treaty with the German Reich would be in the interests of strengthening the future German nation of power in the Near East...

The NMO in Palestine offers to take an active part in the war on Germany's side'...
' " CONTINUED

“Nazi Support of Zionism”

http://www.jewsagainstzionism.com/antisemitis...

EXCERPT “Zionism was supported by the German SS and Gestapo.

Hitler himself personally supported Zionism.

During the 1930's, in cooperation with the German authorities, Zionist groups organized a network of some 40 camps throughout Germany where prospective settlers were trained for their new lives in Palestine.


As late as 1942 Zionists operated at least one of these officially authorized "Kibbutz" training camps[9] over which flew the blue and white banner which would one day be adopted as the national flag of "Israel".

So get your pronouns straight and just Say: I want SOME AMERICAN to Die defending my nasty little Nazi Colony....

OK.....Let's here that howl of "Anti Semite" you Paid, Full Time, Scripted Hasbarats are trained to
trumpet since you have NOTHING to say except what's on today's Hasbara Script

GO HOME!

Apparently, our traitorous, little Liar for Hire didn't hear about Hezbollah's Humiliation of Ziono-Land's Pudgy Pack of Kid Killer and Granny Bashers who were stupid enough to take on REAL fighters while only outnumbering Hezbollah by 100 to 1.

They're still plucking yarmulkes, and US supplied rifles out of the trees when the cowardly, little IDFers came running Home.....Ass in Hand!

At least they've learned to stick to Kid Killing and Granny Bashing....

And....

....Get AIPAC to send AMERICANS to Die for "Greater Israel"!

Your dear little Nazi Colony only succeeded with US Funding and craven sneak attacks.....Israel started EVERY War.....even in '73!

These are the Facts from your OWN War Criminals behind the Sneak Attacks:

“Begin’s Admission in 1982 That Israel Started Three of Its Wars”
http://www.wrmea.com/backissues/0794/9407073....

“It was 12 years ago when Prime Minister Menachem Begin admitted in public that Israel had fought three wars in which it had a "choice," meaning Israel started the wars. Begin's admission came in a speech delivered on Aug. 8, 1982, before the Israeli National Defense College. His purpose was to defuse mounting criticism of Israel's invasion of Lebanon, which had begun two months earlier on June 5 and was clearly one of Israel's wars of "choice." The others were in 1956 and 1967.” CONTINUED

And Sharon was complicit in a Kissinger negotiated "Arab Attack" in 1973 to grab MORE Arab Land:

“Israel Busted Again”&#8232;

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/02/27/wikil... ;“The jist of it is that Kissinger had them pretend to go to war so that they could all secretly plot against Syria, whose army was destroyed.”

Don't you EVER get tired of being exposed as a Parasitic, Cowardly & Traitorous little Liar?
