In Israel, speculation rises of pending attack on Iran

Full story: The Washington Post

Preparations in Israel for a possible war are focusing new attention on whether Israel will attack Iran's nuclear facilities and forcing an unwelcome debate in the thick of a presidential campaign about the U.S. role in stopping an Iranian bomb.

"The Israelis are using the leverage of the U.S. presidential election to seek an explicit statement from Obama that the United States would launch its own attack as early as next year if the talks collapse, analysts and former officials in both the United States and Israel said."

The USA has ZERO reason to attack Iran. ZIP, ZERO, NADA !!

Though we have been poking our finger in Iran's eyes by placing SANCTIONS against Iran.

History does give us EXPERIENCE as to what can go WRONG when we place sanctions on a country.

We placed an oil embargo on Japan during WWII. The rest ihistory (remember Pearl Harbor?)

And Israel wants us to do what??? To launch an attack on Iran?

They are f'n crazy!!!

Let these morons and criminals from israel stop to incite to wars or start wars, because they will start global world war in which they will be destroyed too. The world would be beautiful, people can find so many noble and normal goals and not only wars, attacks, intrigues, crimes etc. Only peace.

IMO Isreal will do a surgical strike of some kind against the entire leadership, Imams, politicos, generals etc. I don't think they are insane. Launching nukes,(making them a pariah) would enflame the entire region including the Saudi's who hate Iran. And nukes are supposedly the only way to destroy the nuclear facilities in Iran. Taking out the Islamist nutcase leaders would stop the nuclear threat but it would also solidify the muslim countries hatred of Isreal thereby probably starting a conventional war. And that is a completely different scenario.

The surrounding Muslims hate the Jews already anyhow..... As far as taking out the Irani leadership,THAT in itself is iffy. Several simultanious strikes at different/seperate targets and no guarentee of success? Don't know 'bout that. Unless Israel considers getting 50-80% of the leaders a success. IF successful(whatever THAT could mean)it could be disruptive enough for the cooler heads in Iran to assume power OR it could unite the country as a whole against an invader. So many ifs to consider.

The Israeli military, good as it is, may not have the resources to 'take out' the Iranian threat. Their aircraft don't have the range for a round trip strike without refueling, and the countries between Israel and Iran are not exactly friendly (tankers are a sitting duck). Missles, not likely accrate enough, and I doubt there are 'bunker buster' missles using conventional explosives. I doubt Israel will do anything that doesn't have a very very good chance of success. As always my comment is that they want the US to make the strike. In the end the Israelies will take care of THEMSELVES, even if that is a declariation that they will nuke Iran on the first indication on an Iranian strike.

There is good reason the unofficial motto of Israel is "Never Again".... They will do what they think they have to do that is in THEIR best interests. The rest of the world be damned. Israel has gone from a purchaser of "any arms available" to for the most part manufacuring their own. The DO still buy some of the more high-tech stuff like combat aircraft and advanced avionics weaponry. But they have the science/ability to upscale/improve on it. Iran has russia's last generation of fighter planes. No match. Iran's big leverage point is their quasi-military Quds Guards division. Their equivelent of a S/F force. A coastal Navy and a weak Air Force. Thats it.

The U.S. needs to learn from our previous mistakes and stay out of military conflict unless our country is directly attacked.

Israel is our ally, but under no circumstances should we follow Israel into a war.

Like Hussein in Iraq, the little Iranian thinks he is Hitler reincarnate, and spread the word he is going to destroy Israel. Israel will take that threat only so long, then you will see the Irani was bluffing.

True enough, Israel will follow the course that they believe will gets the job done with the least cost to Israel ... if they can find a way to do it short of military action they will follow that way (they have done so in the past). We can only speculate what they will do.

War only if wall street desires, as in all wars in the 20th century.
