    Its purely political posturing. Israel threatens, Iran responds with some ridiculous propaganda, and nothing of importance happens. This general knows he can't possibly back up his claims, but he probably wants to boost his popularity for some domestic political reasons.

    How many times have people said that Isreal can't do, and then Isreal does? There isn't a nation in the ME that can subdue Isreal.

    Iran is a peaceful country is too funny for words. Currently Iran is widely described as the number State sponsor of terror in the world and have help that position for some time. Israel is and has never been what knowledgeable people word call war mongers. They have since their inception taken what ever steps were needed to survive attacks from all sides in the last 60 some years. When they have attacked anyone it was always with survival first and foremost in mind.
    Sadly they are in a land that maybe they should not have been in in the first place but it's too late for that debate now. What has always bothered me is that the biggest problem people have had with the Jews is they have different beliefs than others whether Christians, Muslims, Hindus, whom ever and it's wrong now and has always been wrong to have this my Gods better than your God attitude.
    The only way it could ever be cured would be for all men to suddenly stop being stupid and trying to force their will on other. I know this will get a chuckle but if as in the movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still" an outside force were to come and say either stop your present course of action or your planet will be reduced to a burned out cinder. That might make war like people to stop and think but then just look at how the left and right squabble over wealth and basic human rights. The left talks about them then favors killing the unborn and taking from those who earn their way to riches and giving it to those unwilling to work. I realize these are simplified stereo types but if your upset by it or in complete agreement you illustrate the point in your views.

    YouTube - General commander of the Iranian army: It will take us 11 days "to wipe Israel out of existence"

    In an effort to us rhetoric as a preemptive strike Iran is promising the total destruction of Israel if attacked. It is another warning that should be taken seriously because it comes not from Ahmadinejad but from various Iranian military leaders.
    I would think that any strike on Iran by Israel would have to do much more than just target their potential nuclear weapons programs. To avoid retaliation on a scale Israel would have trouble defending against any attack would have to be on a scale I don't believe Israel have the capability to carry out and include the destruction of a very large number of military targets spanning a vast area and result in the total destruction of each site. The only way to insure such success would be to use nuclear weapons of their own which would lead to a much wider war inviting Russia to become involved which under any US President in the past would mean we would come to Israel's aid. Under Obama that question is up in the air.
    All of this points to the need for decisive action to eliminate little mouthy fools like Ahmadinejad who threaten the status quo in the world. The question then becomes what came be done to accomplish such goals. Do we have these people taken out and then play tag with their successor to insure their compliance?
    I'm sure there are many schools of thought on these topics, so what say you do we go to the Neville Chamberlain, Barack Hussein Obama method, or do we actually look at all the possibilities before we go to directly to appeasement?
    I`m thinking Israel is the best equiped military in the world, second only to the christian nation that keeps them well equiped. Iran was hit before and will be hit again to prevent these parasistic muslums from further expansion.

    Everybody tries to claim its posturing, but the Israelis hit Osiraq in '81 and a Syrian facility in 2007.

    The Israelis aren't just whistling dixie, that is historical fact.

    11 days? What, are they going to do, drive there with tanks and occupy Israel?
    The only way Iran can subdue anybody that far away is with missles. That would take 11 minutes, assuming they have enough to do the job. And the retaliation would wipe Iran's major cities off the map.
    Remember the Iraqi officer who was on TV a lot? "all your base are ours!!!"
    What a joke. Iranian govt leaders are acting just like him....

    Israel has threatened to bomb Iran yet again, and Iran replies... nothing new there. Plus lets not forget... it is election time in Iran... a very important fact.

    My only real issue is that now the Israelis have a nut job as PM who could actually order the bombing and is backed by religious zealot nationalists who easily rival the wack jobs in Tehran.

    Like it or not Iran has no interest in attacking Israel (other than verbally) and is just waiting for Israel to throw the first punch.

    Why do I say this? History, economic facts and geo political facts. Iran has not attacked another nation for well over 1000 years and as Iran still lives on its glorious Persian past. in many ways, then there is no basis for offensive acts from said country. Israel on the other hand.. routinely attacks other nations.

    Attacking Israel will also bring down the world on Iran and screw over the economy even more. The present Iranian economy cant handle a war as it barely can handle it self at the moment. And even in Iran it is "the economy stupid". A war started by Iran could be a big threat to the mullahs and they wont jeopardize their political stranglehold on the country. Especially when an attack by Iran needs to go across non friendly areas to reach Iran... Now if the country was attacked then it is a whole other thing since for one the world would not come down on Iran in the same way, but instead it would come down on Israel who as usual would be protected by the US...

    Plus the present situation suits the mullahs in Tehran very nicely.. the US and its allies are doing all the strengthening of Iran's foothold in the area for them, so why shoot the goose that laid the golden egg? Iran has not been stronger geo politically than it is now. Not even during the Shah was Iran so key to the geo political situation in the area. With no Saddam in Iraq they have pretty much free reign in the area as the only power remotely able to stop them is Saudi Arabia and they have to religiously play "both sides" to survive both internally and externally despite the Saudis wanting the mullahs out of the way just as much as Israel wants them out... if not more.

    So it is just more of the usual political posturing and bs words coming from both sides.

    More liberal rhetoric.

    You really need to wake up and stop backing the terrorists in Iran.

    Shame on you for being so blind.

    How is having a differing view other than "Iran needs to be wiped off the map" backing Iran?

    He made very good economical points of why Iran won't attack Israel. You may not agree with him on those points, but that doesn't mean he is backing Iran.

    Why is it many people always assume there are only two sides to a situation and if you don't 100% back the rhetoric of one side, you are automatically for the other side?

    Both sides can be wrong at the same time.

    Yes... and, like Iran, only when attacked.
    You draw your own conclusions from that.
