    I hope that at least behind the scenes out of public scrutiny Obama gives Israel our full support. If necessary full military support if needed in the future!

    Iran does not want to make a bomb, they want nuclear power so they can start being part of the solution when it comes to global warming.

    That entire article is extremely suspect. First of all, as it notes, they'd have to violate two countries' air space with tankers. Really. Second, the number of air craft necessary will likely be more than the IAF has or its entire force. Will Israel risk its entire air force on this compared to a single squadron against Osirak? And Iran's air defenses are far superior than Iraq's was. Actually making into Iranian air space, deep into their air space, avoiding interceptors and SAMs and then delivering sufficiently large weapons to to underground facilities to stop them is fantasy land.

    A far more plausible plan is to take its 4 dolphin class subs move into the Persian Gulf, arm their harpoon missiles with nukes and hit every facility with nuclear warheads.

    Correction. No one in the ME wants anyone in the ME to obtain nukes.

    As stated before, Iran alone having weapons is not that big of a threat. What is crap-in-your-pants-scary is the nuclear arms race that will follow their entry into the nuclear weapons club. Imagine every Middle Eastern country trying to get nukes with the background of Islamic terrorism. HOLY ****.

    Do you have any statements from the people who actually run Iran rather than loud mouth figure head Ahmadinejad?

    The largest supporter of terrorism in the Middle East having nukes is not that big of a threat.....

    That kind of bravado gets folks in uniform killed.

    If he's just a figurehead, doesn't that mean he's just saying what he's told to say....making the distinction a moot point?

    No, not really. You are implying that Iran, which is run by rational folks who run costs vs benefit economic analysis would do what no other country on the face of the planet has ever done: give up control of weapons of mass destruction. That Iran will completely forsake all rational thought it has shown over the course of thirty years, despite having intelligent people in its military to do what no rational regime has ever done.

    Furthermore, you also imply that a regime that has gone to extreme measures to stay in power and never, ever, ever risking their own lives will suddenly change and sacrifice their own necks and their own statuses to eliminate less than half of all Jews despite 20,000+ Jews in Iran.

    And then you imply that Iran will do it DESPITE knowing that they will be murdering at least a million Palestinians, vaporize a key holy site of Islam, and turn Islam against their goals retarding if not completely blocking their end results.

    That kind of bravado gets folks in uniform killed.
    See above.

    I take it you have really no idea how Iran is run do you?

    Look up the past president. And the economy under him. Then compare it to the current president and his economy. It doesn't take a major in political science to figure this one out.

    People here are generally incapable of putting two and two together.

    No, I am not. I'm quite convinced they won't give up such control. Of course, with the terrorists they have on payroll, they don't need to.

    However, stop calling them rational folk. Nations that sponsor terrorists are not rational folk.

    No, I'm implying that they might gift a small nuke or two to Hezbollah to put on a cargo ship bound for Tel Aviv.

    Iran doesn't give a rat's ass about the Palestinians. They use the Palestinian suicide bombers and terrorists to grind on the Israelis by proxy. They've already killed more than a million Palestinians by funding and fomenting the Palestinian conflict with the Israelis, why would they care about another million now?

    BTW, Tel Aviv, which is a much more likely target for a nuke, is not at sacred to Islam.
