    Nor do I.. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar have been calling for a Nuke free zone for 40 years.... but what choice do they have now with Israel threatening Iran???

    I hope Obama plays it well.
    That's a mighty big "if." Syria is pretty tied up at the moment. And Iran would have to fly straight into the teeth of the most experienced combat pilots in the world, and some of the best air defense in the world. Iran would be incredibly lucky if a single pilot survives any strike attempt.

    We continue to do the exact opposite of what Catawaba suggests and provide Iran with good reasons not to pursue nuclear weapons. This will in turn reassure Israel is prevent a preemptive attack.

    Its a thousand miles from Israel to Iran.. How do you think they will pull this off?

    Where are their refueling capabilities? How many fuel tanks do you think they will have too dump to arm themselves with weapons.

    Israel wil NOT attack Iran.. they want the US to do it.

    Ah, I was replying to your post saying Iran and Syria could destroy the refineries in Haifa and desalination plants in Askelon and Ashedod (see quote).

    I'm saying Iran is unlikely to manage that. It fact it would be pretty well impossible for them to pull it off.

    As I read the news reports only half of Israelis agree with his push to attack Iran..
    That matches what I've read and I agree.

    I think under the present arrangement, Israel has no incentive to negotiate a peaceful coexistence.

    I say we let the region decide what is best for them. Because every time we start a war over there, it ends up killing hundreds of thousands of civilians and adds a couple trillion dollars more in national debt.
