    I don't think Obama has the balls to do what would be required. I don't think Israel has the military capability to do what would be required. If either military should attack Iran, the other will certainly be sucked into the resulting fray whether they want it or not. Due to this piggy-back effect, I don't think either would act unilaterally. They would both know well before anyone else.

    A tipoff would be any large scale shuttling of diplomatic/military personnel between Washington and Jerusalem.

    This might be another sign, although it's hard to say how accurate it is.

    The Jerusalem Post website on Sunday said reports that the Israeli military had established a base in Saudi Arabia originated with Iranian and Israeli news outlets. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Ha'aretz were among Israeli media carrying the reports credited to Fars, the semi-official Iranian news agency. The Fars report was also picked up buy international outlets such as UPI.

    The reports said the Israeli base is about five miles from Tabuk in northwest Saudi Arabia.

    The Islam Times said Israeli airplanes landed at an international airport and Israeli soldiers unloaded military equipment on June 18 and 19. Saudi officials canceled commercial air traffic and, one traveler told the Islam Times, paid to put up passengers in nearby four-star hotels to prevent them from expressing anger.

    Tabuk, the closest Saudi city to Israel, is just south of Jordan, the Post said.

    Earlier deal reported
    The claim follows a report two weeks ago in the London Times Magazine that Saudi Arabia had given Israel permission to fly through a narrow corridor of airspace in northern Saudi Arabia to shorten the flight time Israeli jets need to reach Iran.

    Israel Air Force aircraft dropped off large quantities of military gear at a Saudi Arabian military base a week ago, in preparation for a potential attack on Iran, a number of Iranian and Israeli news outlets have reported.

    The unconfirmed report, first published by the semi-official Iranian news agency Fars and the Islam Times Web site, claimed that on June 18 and 19, Israeli helicopters unloaded military equipment and built a base just over 8 km. outside the northwestern city of Tabuk, the closest Saudi city to Israel, located just south of Jordan. All civilian flights into and out of the city were said to have been canceled during the Israeli drop-off, and passengers were reportedly compensated by the Saudi authorities and accommodated in nearby hotels.
    Is Israel arming in Saudi Arabia?

    The Israeli Air Force recently unloaded military equipment at a Saudi Arabia base, a semi-official Iranian news agency claimed Wednesday, while a large American force has massed in Azerbaijan, which is on the northwest border of Iran.

    Both reports follow by less than a week the Pentagon’s confirmation that an unusually large American fleet sailed through the Suez Canal Saturday. Several reports stated that an Israeli ship joined the armada.

    I jumped the gun. I... saw only external comments, and none on Iran's provocations/actions. Is Iran the whole cause, no, but leaving Iran out of the equation, well that lead me down the wrong path in reading your stance. For that I am truly sorry.

    And no worries, I am more than cognizant of the difficulties living in a state that is shall we say, not known for being tolerant of dissent. Keep the flame alive sir, I salute ya.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Anything that originates from Fars should be treated with caution.

    In addition, there would be no great benefit in establishing an Israeli base at Tabuk since it is only about 130 miles from there to Israel. There is a necklace string of four large cities here on the terminus of the Red Sea and each city is in a different country. From west to east... Taba, Egypt - Eilat, Israel - Aqaba, Jordan - Tabuk, Saudi Arabia.

    Re: Iran: War Option on the Table

    all point scoring and spinning aside, i think we all know our dear barry has no CREDIBLE plan for dealing with the ultra dangerous world leader of international shia

    heck, bereft barry don't even got a TALKING POINTS

    he WAS gonna reachout and MEET with the "leaders of iran"

    really, anyone who's been watching tv for 30 years coulda told over-his-head obama his little gambit was a guffaw

    when his crackpot conception became clearly kaput, around his second month or so, our poor, perplexed prez had no contingency

    he's STILL mumbling about negotiations

    jfkerry on fareed zakaria just sunday suggested involving ahmedinejad in confab's in obama's war

    CNN.com - Transcripts

    out-of-his-element obama mumbles and dissembles these days, when he has to, shibboleths about sanctions, all chimera

    hu and putin and others have made that stanley mcchrystal clear

    obama will NEVER attack iran

    he's way over his head already in iraq and afghanistan, places he patently does NOT want to be

    obama wants to reform THIS country

    know the man

    he is very, very ambitious

    this economy and this korea, these cartels and that netanyahu---they're the most nattering of nuisances

    international climate, talking foreign policy, is probably the cause closest to the clumsy klutz' concern

    and it was cruelly killed in cold, cold copenhagen

    it is what it is

    gates was absolutely right

    indeed, it is the undeniably obviousness of obama's bereftness of policy that stirred the secty to sing, in the first place
