    I would agree with this... I think Israel will have, let's say... clandestine assistance and support, just not OPEN assistance and support in an attack on Iran.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I voted "no" in the poll, but we have to make SOME progress of some kind at some point.
    China is risking gloabal isolation. The world is sick of China's refusal to prevent terrorists from getting nuclear arfms. Moreover, most powers are sick of China's deplorable human rights violations.

    I would remind the Russians that they too can be isolated and their economy, which only exists because of the US and her allies, can quickly tank AGAIN.

    China can be reminded that their money in this country can quickly vanish. All Chinese made products can be prevented from entering the country. Therefore, their booming economy can AND WILL BE broken if they do not stop protecting terrorists.

    The red menance will play ball or we can **** their economy up so bad they will know what extreme poverty feels like.

    Of course they can. They have nuclear weapons and the most advanced military in the ME.

    The problem is, if they do, they need the backing of most of the world to handle the backlash of some creepy arab alliance that will act against Israel as a response to their "unreasonable" attack against Iran, and Israeli/American "imperialism".
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US

    The chances of Europe getting involved is slim to none. US might tho but they already in alot of debt
    Europe is already involved.

    Germany and France are two of the biggest speakers against the Iranian nuclear ambition.

    France what?
    Wait, are you surprised it oversee's Africa? I mean, they did screw it up down there. French forces are engaged in its territories abroad, in NATO its contribution isn't that great. The UK contributes far more and has much more credibility in attacking Iran alone. I find it very hard to believe France would press any button without the US doing it first. Sorry, but its how it is. I didnt see Europe step a foot in the ME until the Americans did it first.

    Germany has to be against Iran. I mean with its history and everything, there is little choice in the matter.

    But is it not Europe which trades with Iran more?

    Talk and action are two entirely different things.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it.

    I don't know, let's begin with something that would not require the scattering of the Jewish citizens of Israel at the disapora again, it pretty much goes against the purpose of Israel's establishment you know.
