    A technicality violation does not a military threat make. Iraq had technical violations of their UN agreement, and was of no more of a threat than is Iran.

    I disagree, Iran supports well known enemies of Israel such as Hezbollah and Hamas. If Iran were to develop nuclear weapons, it would certainly tip the scale of power in the region away from Israel. It is very easy to see why Israel IS be concerned. Should Israel choose to attack, the US being a strong allie of israel should support the country, and that could very well include some military force.

    We have provided much, much more direct support for Israel, a well known enemy of Palestine and Iran.

    Yes, it would provide a parity that does not currently exist. Such parity is necessary for any serious negotiations for peace.

    It is very easy to see why Israel IS be concerned.
    Its easier for me to see that Iran has more reason for concern than does Israel. Israel is the one that is threatening to attack, and actually has the means to do so.

    Should Israel choose to attack, the US being a strong allie of israel should support the country, and that could very well include some military force.
    If Israel is stupid enough to attack Iraq without clearing it with us, they are on their own as far as I am concerned.

    No ****, Israel is one of our strongest allies. Did you miss my earlier points?

    I could not disagree more. Its like you forget everything we have talked about. Nuclear Iran most likely will provoke war. That is what we are arguing about this entire time. If Iran stops its pursuits of nuclear weapons, no war.

    No ****, Isreal is threatening to attack because Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran can easily stop doing that, which is what we an Israel want. Do you see why we are imposing economic sanctions and threatening attack now?

    The US should stand up for its allies, especially one of its closest like Israel. Not doing so would weaken our credibility and respect abroad and hurt our national interests.

    Using Nukes is not the best interest of the US, well unless you wish to see our standing in the world dry up over night. In fact asserting that Iran needs to be nuked is just plain stupid. There is no tactical reasoning in using nukes on Iran period.

    I respect your opinion of course. But it is coming ....4 or 5 months ... less may be? and we will see the light ... the nuclear light that is.
