Levin is a nut case. This would be a war between Iran and Saudia NOT the US.

Nothing like a (?righteous?) war to boost one in the polls. I can just see Obama making this into another of his crisis. If there is any political gain to be had he will do it no matter what it does to the country.

Sorry, it's an excuse for the USA to attack Iran instead of Israel doing the attacking.

Aren't you tired of fighting for Israel, funding Israel, our children dying for Israel and there are NO Israelis fighting beside our soldiers.

Watch, it will happen.

Maybe we should bring all the Israelis to the USA.

No, I agree- Iran is at least as big a threat as Sadaam Hussein was...

I bet the government fabricated the whole thing. We now are fighting in 5 countries. We are broke from phony enemies and phony wars. We have enemies up the ying yang.

1. Afghanistan.

2. Iraq.

3. Pakistan.

4. Yemen.

5. Libya.

Get ready for WWIII.

it's an act of war against the US because the assassination was to take place on US soil.
if it were meant to happen anywhere else, it would not be.

Levin's a Democrat - apparently warmongers at the drop of a hat like Obama. Took Bush Sr and Jr a long time before they knew US had to go to war to remove Saddam with his threat of massive chemical weapons. With Obama, he sends drones and troops at the drop of a hat, no strategy, just expendable American lives. We lost more combat soldiers in 2 weeks compared to Bush's 8 years.

These Democrats talk a good story but are nothing but hypocrits and warmongering fools. What's another American life, all expendable. Let's pretend we're helping and send 1500 more high powered guns to the Mexican cartel,$3 bln to the Muslim brotherhood - new government of egypt who are as of today massacring Arab christians to win in their fake "democratic" election.

Democrats have to start a war to get Fast, and Furious off the front page. They messed up real bad, and they can't lie their way out this time, because we have a a paper trail on them. They are stupid. They never think anyone will catch them.

Commiecrats will do the same with this as they did with Iraq... They will speak more shrilly than the Republicans, then use their cowardice to undermine actual proponents of doing something. The leading Democrats were much more condemning of Iraq than any Republicans, beating the war drums, then saying Bush lied. Of all the wars that actually should be started is the war against Communist deconstruction Democrats in the U.S.A. There are people, who have kept track of Democrat duplicity and perfidies. Start amassing the information, then prosecute and put those suckers in camps to teach them how to work, among other things.

There were a lot of us that never once gave an iota of support to the Iraq war. There were big demonstrations etc... But that asshole Bush; the self-proclaimed "decider" (only a douchebag nick-names himself) didn't give a flying f**k how a huge portion of the American people felt about the situation. Many of us never bought the WMD lie. It was even more pathetic when they kept changing their story as to why they were going in. At any rate, he just went ahead and did what he wanted to (in typical bull-headed Texas cowboy fashion), regardless of how the American people felt. His ego wrote the check, the US military (and the US economy) unfortunately had to cash it. That's what happens when you put a moron with a lukewarm IQ in charge of things. It is that very self-righteous idiocy that has made him go down as one of the worst presidents in American history.

Obama does Iran, he loses the 2012 election pure and simple. The American public is tired of fighting, sending money to the Middle East.

The arab spring is a FAILURE. It's twitter war, huh? Stupid, stupid, stupid people who initiated this uprising.

Israel wants Iran taken out. Mossad is at work. And Israel is pulling the strings of the puppet country they own, America.

I was one of the folks in the streets calling BS at the top of my luungs.(felt like the ol' days) There was no proof, any idiot could see it was BS.

From talking with people that supported the Iraq invasion, my personal take is that many US citizens didn't get enough blood lust revenge for 9-11 from watching some distant mountain top get bombed in Afghanistan while watching CNN.

Exactly Grave....... They have already sent Israel The Bunker Busting Bombs. It will be an American Israeli Cabal Action. The U S's Mid-Eastern Policy is to make Israel the Dominate Power at any cost to The American People, not to mention The innocent People of The Middle-East. Our Kosher Ass Kissing Congress is totally under The control of AIPAC and all the other Zionist Organizations, including The Wacko Evangelicals and Their Rapturist Theology. The Excutive Branch is Ripe with The Stench of Zionism. We need a government that puts America's interests First and Foremost. But..... That is not going to happen as We can see. They are Racheting up The Rhetoric of War and The Israeli Government and Knesset are Dancing in The Israeli Halls of Power!
