    Re: PAPER: Military action against Iran 'likely'..

    Israel's defence minister, Ehud Barak, has warned that Iran cannot be allowed to establish a "zone of immunity" at Fordow where it is able to work on a nuclear weapon deep underground protected from Israel's conventional weapons. Earlier this month, Barak said Israel must consider an attack before that happens.
    excuse me, but where does israel obtain any standing to take any kind of non-diplomatic action
    israel is a nuclear weapons builder
    israel - unlike iran - is not a signed nation to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty
    and our secretary of defense has only recently acknowledged there is no indication that iran is building a nuclear weapon


    this smacks of the propaganda that was used to commence the unnecessary and unjustified iraq war
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    lies about iraq military capacity to justify unnecessary war

    looks like a direct parallel to me

    someday we'll figure out that replacing oil is important enough to make it a top-level national priority.

    i hope we figure it out before the next war.

    We have given them tens if not hundreds of billions in aid already. They can fight a war with a third world country with out us. They did it before and can do it again. Don't see why that is our problem.
