    Re: 30-day war with Iran

    If Israel attacks Iran the world will have to respond especially if Iran follows through with threats to block the straight of Hormuz. The EU is already considering stiffer sanctions against Iran. I expect the EU will ultimately support Israel if they go to war. Regardless I doubt the US or Israel will follow through with an attack until after the elections.

    The WW1 was supposed to last for a few months. Instead it lasted for four years. Sounds familiar?

    "A strike on Iranís nuclear sites would spark a 30-day war with missile attacks on Israel's cities and as many as 500 dead, according to the Israeli minister responsible for preparing home defences."

    30 days was all that was needed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not 10 years.

    To overthrow the current regime you would be correct. However, if were to do the same to Iran and not have a cleanup, that whole country would implode as a safe haven for terrorists. And before you say "Well they already are terrorists", you ain't seen nothing yet that would happen in comparison afterwards on something like this.

    By not putting American soldiers lives in danger would be to tacitly abandon the region and then will ultimately put American soldiers lives in danger.

    That's why Israel should not attack to begin with. If we tell them we won't support their attack, they won't do it. They're not going in without our support. They're not stupid, or at least not that stupid.

    Hate to be a rules lawyer, but the OP should really change the title of the thread. I'm already annoyed i wasted my time reading through this to find it is just more posturing bull****/propaganda.

    It's always supposed to be a quick and easy war, but it never is.

    I agree that Israel should not attack anyone unilaterally....The US has already shown Israel that where the tenuous balance of the region is at stake the US will strive to keep the "peace" rather than side with one ally. An example of this is when Israel refused to sell the US Israeli made components for AWACS type aircraft to be used by Turkey. The US then opted for South Korean made components instead and sold the aircraft to Turkey at the risk of snubbing Israel.
