    Iranian Official: Israel to Be ‘First Victim’ of U.S. Attack on Syria

    A senior Iranian lawmaker said Israel would be the first casualty of any U.S.-led strike on Syria, according to regional media reports.

    Iranian Official: Israel to Be
    Well... Obama better be ready to assist our ally. Or will he let them hang?

    This is the test of our child president Joe Biden warned about. Poor Clueless Barack.

    I guess he should have gone and dealt with Iran without preconditions. It would have solved everything.

    Listen to our Idiot in Chief go on about Iran. "Iran... these countries are tiny...they don't pose a serious threat to us."

    I know we like to call Israel our ally, but the United States has no treaty obligation whatsoever to defend Israel.

    That being said, threats like this are made all the damn time, what's to say this threat is any more serious than any other? And why should any threat, not even against us, completely halt and alter our foreign policy? I'm not saying we should ignore other countries and their viewpoints or statements when conducting foreign policy, but to have our foreign policy decision making be so throughly altered due to yet another threat from Iran doesn't seem like a course of action the United States should embark on.

    This is what he gets for never saying anything beyond randomly blurting out pithy, vacuous campaign one-liners to audiences full of morons who haven't a clue how to tell the difference between him and a real leader.

    If Iran attacks Israel then the US will have to support them or unleash them. That's the choice.

    Obama's response should be, "I have a bunker buster with your name on it. "
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    This won't be Gulf War part 3, more like World War 3. If Iran attacks Israel then Israel will respond and then Russia will respond, and then...well, you get the picture.

    If we don't go illegally attack another country, we won't have to worry about any blow back to Israel. As for what Obama said about Iran in your clip, its true, they aren't a threat to us, are you skeered?

    Re: Iranian Official: Israel to Be ‘First Victim’ of U.S. Attack on Syria

    You people misunderstand. Iran is not threatening to strike Israel directly. Iran is warning that Syria will retaliate by striking Israel (which Syria itself has already threatened).

    Iran is not going to engage the US or Israel in war directly over this (but they will devote resources indirectly). The only possible outcome of that is the utter destruction of the Iranian regime, and they know it.
