    From what I understand most Israelis don't want war with Iran. It's Netanyahu and the Likud Party. Good on Obama for telling Netanyahu to STFU.

    If Iran tries to wage nuclear war it would be dumb. India, Israel itself, Russia, America, and every other Nuclear capable country except for the crazy NKoreans will be breathing hot, radioactive breath down Iran's neck if they choose to do so. Nuclear weapons are a power statement, not an actual weapon. Everybody watched the power of nukes in the Cold War. That's why Iran 'needs' them

    Judging what people will do based on some things being "dumb" doesn't work. Look at ones political enemies, they do dumb crap all the time.

    True, but those acts of stupidity don't result in nuclear fallout either

    I just wouldn't count on anyone not doing something dumb. It seems that the dumber something is, the more likely it will be done.

    You may not have realized that the situation has worsened, in that the IAEA inspectors have reported in the last few days that negotiations have come to a dead end with Iran.

    Let me reword that. It not only would be dumb, but it would be suicide for the nation

    First, the nation would not be making the decision. Second, radical fundie Muslims committing suicide? Can't be!

    Hitler also had a strong enough nation that not much could stop him until the US stepped in
