    The international support isn't there to sanction Iran, what makes you think that there will be international support to, shut them down?

    What do you suggest happens?
    I say we give the Israelis the green light.

    Re: Anger as Iran holds up IAEA inspectorsí visit

    Although Iran set the date for inspections beyond what some of the P5+1 states had wanted, at least a date-certain has been established. Satellites can monitor activities to determine whether anything suspicious happens in the vicinity of the facility prior to the IAEA's inspections. All said, the date itself is not a deal-breaker so to speak.

    However, a larger issue that is underscored by the delay and even more by past Iranian issues with the IAEA is the need for a robust verification regime. No agreement would be complete without a rigorous verification mechanism.

    At the same time, even if sanctions are not discussed in the public, it would be prudent for the P5+1 to develop a stringent sanctions package as a contingency should Iran's cooperation prove less than forthcoming. Even if such sanctions won't be needed, it is better to be prepared than caught by surprise.

    Hmm here is a better idea just send the Iran this video and tell them they have two choice stop building the Nuke Stuff or this is going ot happen to you.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJ7niLYSVFo&feature=related"]YouTube - B-52 MITO departure, Minot AFB, ND[/ame]

    Now for those who don't know what this is this took place on June 9 2009. It's called a MITO/DEFON 1 Alert takeoff. What you see id 15 B-52G on a fast alert scramble take off please note it took under 10 minutes to launch them and have them on their merry way towards the over sea's targets.

    Because countries aren't willing to sanction based on speculation of aggressive behavior.

    Actually it would considering that the following Middle East Countries have stated that they will not stop Israel from flying over there Countries.

    Saudi Arabia,Jordon,Oman,Kuwait, beside we already know that the Israelie's have at least two of there Subs and 3 FFG in the Arabian Sea. If and when the attacks happen not very many of the Middle East Country's are going to really get all bent out of shape over it.

    I do not imagine that Israel need the permission of the US to do whatever they think is in the best interest of Israel.

    I'm more worried about the all out guerrilla war Iran will set forth in many countries. A fight with Iran will not be fought on a battlefield, it will be fought in the street with "soldiers" dressed up like civilians.

    If they see only speculation, then there's no way they'll ever do anything if Iran builds a weapon.

    What's going to happen? Muslim fanatics are going to hate the Israelis? Iran's going to invade Iran?

    That's why all these namby-pamby ROE's that have been established and the whining from the Leftists about collateral damage has had a negative effect both for the civilians and our soldiers. What's been created, is an environment that enables and encourages the enemy to dress up like civilians.
