LOL...you repubs don't know how funny and hypocritical you sound when you take any and every stance as long as it's opposite what you think Pres. Obama wants.

Repub idiots were the same folks that called American "traitors" cause we disagreed with you demands to liberate Sunni Muslims in Iraq cause "Saddam was killing his own people".

US will NOT attack Iran or Syria
Israel will NOT attack Iran

Watch what Egypt is up to with Israel

The only way the US will get involved is that Israel is openly attack by Radical Muslim forces which will include Egypt, Iran,Iraq,Syria, and United Arab Emirates forces. Then Russia and China will enter along with the US after the US is attacked. Russia will turn against the US.

That is exactly what's going to happen. Maybe after the election. Assad of Syria is ready to engulf the whole area in a war if he loses. That conflict you describe will start with Syria.

If Obama wants a win in an election year a war with Iran wont for sure giving it to him. But if Obama think he might not have a chance to win in 2012 he will probably attack Iran. Everything has to do with the election. And besides Iran is not a threat to us, they are more of a threat to Israel, let Israel take care of them. And don't tell we are securing their existence, because I don't think Iran will be an easy target.

FYI

The US have been on alert for years!!
We have aircraft, ships and sub surveillance in the Persian golf and all water ways in the area for years. The next war that the US get involved in will not be on the ground. It will be nuclear and chemical. We will only get involved if we are attacked
The US or Israel will NOT be the first to attack

The craziest think about it is that many of those weapons are stamped "Made in the USA"!

It does remind me of Iraq. First the WMD was a reason for the US to invade, than Iraq probably smuggle them to Syria or Iran, and we couldn't find any. Now we probably end up in Iran. Same scenario but a different country. When, and who?. Probably after the election, and who, it can be any President.
