    Israel Plans Iran Strike; Citizens Say Government Serious [W:52]

    I'm sure it's too much to ask that our government let Israel fight it's own war. Sooner or later the rest of the world is going to start kicking back against all this aggression and our leaders must know this. Therefore, I have to assume that there are people who want a large scale conflict in the world. Aren't constant wars one of the signatures of a society in decline?

    I swear Israel has been on the verge of attacking Iran for most of my adult life. Must be a slow news day

    Israel won't take any action without US backing, and the US is indicating that they do not currently support such a move. It was only a few days ago that Leon Panetta stated that Israel had not made a decision on whether to attack Iran over its nuclear program, and suggested that stronger sanctions were still an option.

    Military strikes should never be considered as an option until all non-military avenues/ diplomatic solutions have been completely exhausted.

    I hope there isn't a conflict before or after the election. I would prefer it happen after the election if it's going to happen because there's a small chance that If Obama wins we won't go fight their war for them. He's been such a warmonger that the chances are small he wouldn't involve us but it's the best chance we have if they do start bombing Iran. I guess what concerns me most is how ridiculious it is that this is even possible. The days of U.S. and Europe colonizing the world and telling everyone what they are and aren't allowed to do are over. We have a country with more and more people sliding into poverty, an economy that doesn't make anything and an infrastructure that is crumbling what the hell difference does it make that Israel doesn't like Iran.

    Oh and don't give me that bullsh*t excuse about them being a sponsor of terrorism. In case you haven't read a paper recently we are sponsoring Al Qeada in Syria so what does that make us.

    this has certainly been a bonanza for the oil industry
    israel keeps threatening iran, pushing oil prices higher
    further reducing the rate of economic recovery
    which can only hurt Obama's re-election prospects
    the actual israeli government intent

    I think it's just a signature of society.
