Do you think that the united states will take preemtive actions against iran? Do you think that the Israel gov will also?
Israel will take care of the nut case government of Iran. Those who know history well know all about the holocaust of the Jewish people under the evil monsters Hitler and Stalin. Israel experienced one holocaust and their memory is crystal clear. The Israelis know first hand what happens when a country allows a monster to rule over them. They will never allow themselves to go through another holocaust whether it be from gas ovens to radioactive mushroom clouds.
The very moment Israel truly believes Iran has the bomb and plans to attack the Jewish people that is the moment Iran will go the way Hiroshima. It will go from a country to an ash pile.
The very survival of Israel is what will be threatened if Iran gets the nuke. With Israel backed up against the sea and surrounded by Islamic radicals who have the spirit of evil itself Israel will not blink neither will she hesistate when it comes time to push the button.
Probably. Why? Not for the reasons hyped in the mainstream press. In 1978, the US asked the OPEC nations to use the US dollar as the baseline for the purchase of all oil in the world. In return, the US guaranteed all imports of oil to the US would come from the Middle East. Guess who eventually opted out to use the Euro instead? Iraq, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela. Iraq got their comeuppance for that decision and now it seems Iran is next on the list. But it won’t be the US. They will use Israel to do their dirty work with some hyped up excuse to attack. Anything else you hear is simply smoke and mirrors. It’s all about oil and international banking. The Iranian people want the same things as you and I: raise a family, having a job and enough to eat, security for their old people and living in peace and harmony. I believe their leaders need to tone down the rhetoric, but hey, why take crap from the world bully?
There will be no military action against Iran for the fact that America has become too weak and stuck on trying to fight wars like they were fastfood. We expect to get in and get out without a scratch and the second someone skins their knee there are too many whining to pull out.
If Isreal goes in then we will back them. The problem is that Isreal’s government is a bunch of spineless old men who dont want to fight for their own freedom. A bunch of thugs called Hezbollah fought them to a stalemate and Isreal is one of the most advanced militaries on earth. Kinda makes you wonder about the US in Iraq. Let the military fight the fight and you wont have these issues. The war ends swiftly if the politicians let the soldiers fight how they need to fight.
Yes I truly believe that a preemptive strike on Iran by Israel is imminent, only a matter of time.
Iran cannot really threaten the US and we are fully capable of protecting our interests in the region.
Now this is a different situation for Europe. Iran can threaten them and they cannot defend their interests in the region. Europe also has to deal with the issue that they have alienated the US so there will be no public support for another war to repair yet another European screw-up.
Eventually, yes, but who knows how long it will be. It scares me that we are in so deep already in the mess with Iraq. Soon it will be Iran, and the region will only become more unstable as time goes on.
ELEANOR HALL: The leaders of the United States and Israel have issued new warnings to the Iranian regime to end its nuclear program.
After a meeting at the White House overnight, Israel’s Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, would not rule out military action against Iran.
And President Bush said a nuclear-armed Iran would be an incredibly destabilising force in the world.
But while these two leaders were meeting in Washington, in New York, United Nations efforts to impose sanctions on Iran appear to have stalled.
North America Correspondent Michael Rowland reports.
MICHAEL ROWLAND: As diplomats dither at the United Nations over the wording of a sanctions resolution, Israel is growing increasingly worried about Iran’s nuclear intentions.
Israel’s Prime Minister, Ehud Olmert, speaking ahead of his meeting with President Bush, said it wouldn’t be long before the Tehran regime developed a nuclear weapon.
EHUD OLMERT: I don’t want to measure it in days or weeks, but it’s quite close, and we have to join forces in order to stop it because this is a serious danger to many countries, amongst them Israel, and this is a moral obligation that we all have. And I think that we all understand it will not happen, it can’t happen, we will not tolerate the possession of nuclear weapons by Iran.
MICHAEL ROWLAND: Just how far Israel would go to stop Iran’s nuclear program remains an open question.
When Mr Olmert was asked today whether Israel would launch a pre-emptive military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, all the Prime Minister would say was that he hoped it would never have to reach that stage.
There’ve been equally strong words from President Bush, who’s warned Iran that if it pressed ahead with its uranium enrichment activities, there would have to be consequences.
For the moment, Mr Bush is mainly talking about economic and diplomatic isolation, but the US is also leaving open the option of military action.
The President says Iran knows what it has to do.
GEORGE W. BUSH: If the Iranians want to have a dialogue with us, we have shown them a way forward, and that is for them to verifiably suspend their enrichment activities.
We put that proposal on the table a while back. We said that if you want to have a dialogue with us, we’re willing to come to the table with the EU, as well as Russia and China, to discuss a way forward. But first you must verifiably suspend your enrichment activities.
Our focus of this administration is to convince the Iranians to give up its nuclear weapons ambitions.
MICHAEL ROWLAND: Iran’s intransigence could hinder America’s efforts to find a way out of the war in Iraq.
The Bush administration is under growing pressure to engage Iran about ways of reducing sectarian violence in Iraq, particularly involving Shi’ite militias with close ties to the Tehran regime.
But the US is reluctant to go down this path, unless Iran ends its nuclear activities.
Watching nervously on the sidelines is Israel.
David Makovsky, a senior fellow with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, says the Israelis are wary about extending any olive branches to Iran.
DAVID MAKOVSKY: Clearly Israel is, you know, here is the President of Iran repeatedly saying he wants to wipe Israel off the face of the map, and he’s defying the international community when it comes to acquiring nuclear weapons.
So, you know, the Israelis see the Iranian leadership as, you know, they liken it to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis as having genocidal intentions.
I’m sure they’re somewhat nervous by the naming of Robert Gates as the new Secretary of Defence, who’s come out with an approach on Iran that’s supposedly more conciliatory.
The Israelis say, you know, they don’t, you know, they’re happy that it’s solved diplomatically, but they’d like the nuclear issue of Iran addressed, and they see that the whole organising principle of the Middle East is revolving around Iran and its support for radical groups.
MICHAEL ROWLAND: Given President Ahmadinejad’s comments about wanting to wipe Israel off the map, how would the Israeli Government feel about Iran being brought to the negotiating table as a way of trying to resolve the crisis in Iraq?
DAVID MAKOVSKY: When it comes to Iraq, the Israelis are very stand-offish. They don’t want to do anything, say anything that could at all imperil what the US wants to do.
If the United States wants to bring Iran in to discuss Iraq, the Israelis will not interfere.
By the way, when it came to Afghanistan, too, Iran was a player at the table and the Israelis had no problems with that.
Their main focus is, what are you doing about the nukes?
ELEANOR HALL: That’s David Makovsky, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, speaking to Michael Rowland.
Do not send troops – just a strategic air-strike against ALL their nuclear reactors. In/out/over!
by fighting them in Iraq i think we all ready are
the same can be said of Israels war against Hezbollah
