That is quite a hypothetical. An easier question to answer would be who do you trust more in the use of military power?

/Obama wins that hands down
 
2012-08-23 06:07:17 AM
Obama.
 
2012-08-23 06:10:54 AM
This issue of Iran may play heavily in the election. The economy is still gonna be front and center, but this might be the second biggest thing.
 
2012-08-23 06:27:11 AM
I could never respect a President that hasn't trained his dog to sit and heel.
 
2012-08-23 08:17:29 AM
obama... are you kidding?
 
2012-08-23 08:22:53 AM
I will vote for anyone who tells Israel to go fark itself.
 
2012-08-23 08:36:18 AM
If Obama came to my house and kicked my dog...I'd still vote for him. If Obama left an upper decker after he kicked my dog... I'd still vote for him. If he gave me a prison tat of a swastika in my sleep I'd still vote for Obama.
 
2012-08-23 08:37:56 AM
Obama. But this is coming from a person who doesn't like the U.S.' support of Israel in the first place.
 
2012-08-23 08:39:20 AM
Obama can sleep with my wife AND my mother, at the same time, and I'd still vote for him over Mitt.

A syllogism for you history folks:

United States: Israel :: Pre-WWI Russia: Pre-WWI Serbia
 
2012-08-23 08:59:46 AM
Israel attacks Iran - stay out.
Iran attacks Israel - different story.

Obama on both counts.

Obama, hands down. Israel are big boys. They don't need our troops dying in their war, and they don't need our money to fight it either.
 
2012-08-23 09:26:22 AM
"If the cafeteria serves tater tots today, will that make you more likely to vote for Obama or Romney?"

Equally valid question.
 
2012-08-23 09:35:28 AM
What I got from TFA: Netanyahu wants to be best buds with Romney.
 
2012-08-23 09:46:45 AM
if Israel attacks Iran then Israel can deal with the situation all by themselves.
 
2012-08-23 09:55:49 AM
If nonintervention is your thing, then Gary Johnson is the pick.

Bladel: Israel attacks Iran - stay out.

Obama on both counts.


Yeah, I'm not a fan of fighting Israel's battles for them, but I'll agree with this. If Iran is monumentally stupid enough to be the aggressor, I'd be OK with the US swatting them down.

If Israel attacks Iran, I can only wish we would have the balls to tell them they're on their own.

There is nothing that would convince me to vote for Romney in this Universe.

That goes back a ways. When he was involved with the UMaine system, before he headed to Utah. His stint as Governor in Mass, only cemented that. His statements and his inability to cohere anything that remotely looks like consistent policy only confirms my bias. His choice of Ryan as his running mate only confirms my decision. Romney will never get my vote, because of his record going back that far. He is not anything that I want near office. I don't trust the man, I don't trust his decision making process, I don't trust his motives, I don't trust his backers, because the only thing that they have any allegiance to is the money that they have in the bank, and screw shareholders, screw taxpayers, screw communities, screw the country, that is all that he's going to serve.

No thank you. We cannot afford a Romney Presidency on any level, nor can our grandkids...

actually, pretty much this.
 
2012-08-23 10:08:16 AM
If Iran attacks Israel and doesn't completely cripple their military capabilities, Obama's only move should be to raise a hand and say, "Hold on. This is gonna be funny."
 
2012-08-23 10:09:44 AM
I didn't like the idea of pre-emptive war under Bush, what makes you think I would like it any better now?

This whole hypothetical is stupid anyway. Not gonna happen.

SilentStrider: Obama, hands down. Israel are big boys. They don't need our troops dying in their war, and they don't need our money to fight it either.


This.
 
2012-08-23 10:11:19 AM
I don't think we'd see quite so many "Liberate Iran" lawn signs, that's for sure.
 
2012-08-23 10:11:25 AM
RON PAUL!

*ducks, runs*

/obvious
 
2012-08-23 10:11:53 AM
Obama. On the flip side, if Obama DID get us involved, I would seriously consider staying home or voting third party.

/get us involved in an unnecessary aggressive war, you lose my vote, regardless of party

Bloody William: If Iran attacks Israel and doesn't completely cripple their military capabilities, Obama's only move should be to raise a hand and say, "Hold on. This is gonna be funny."


Tehran would be a smoking hole in the ground if Iran attacks Israel.

I would vote for the man who, during his first term, expertly handled every major foreign policy problem that came his way, excelling especially with regards to the middle east.
 
2012-08-23 10:12:40 AM
Obama.

Because I'm sick and tired of playing Daddy to the world. If they want to slug it out let them. It will thin out all the rowdy ones are just itching for a fight.

What if Israel attacks Kenya?

Oh, snap!
 
2012-08-23 10:16:00 AM
Obama. And, hopefully that would send a message to the Israeli people. War isn't anyone's default answer anymore, so swing your next election away from the hawks.

Especially when so many younger Iranians actually like western civilization. Their revolution will come in time, and it will be permanent.
 
2012-08-23 10:16:18 AM
I'm buying popcorn futures.
 
2012-08-23 10:17:14 AM
Obama.

They didn't even play with the last two wars we got them.
 
2012-08-23 10:19:25 AM
"Why do you ask?"

"Oh, no reason."

America needs to learn what /b/ and Anonymous learned long ago
Not your personal army
 
2012-08-23 10:23:23 AM
Let's see - a warmonger who would use privatized military to further loot the US coffers but is too much of a pussy to make the tough calls, or a less-inclined warmonger who reduced the military presence, even if it did continue to loot the US coffers, and who has shown the decisiveness to take out the top guys.

I'll take "Lesser of Two Evils" for $1000, Alex.

/meaning Obama
 
2012-08-23 10:23:28 AM

Bontesla: Obama.

 
2012-08-23 10:23:46 AM
Obama.

/If Iran did attack Israel, it would be nuked by Israel so fast. Period.
 
2012-08-23 10:23:47 AM
I really do not believe that the US has any reason to support Israel.
I also believe that Mr. Obama is a relatively intelligent and sane person. I do not believe that about anyone who chooses to label him or herself a republican.

Obama, though he's my pick for this election regardless. We don't need to get involved in something else right now, we've got too much going on as it is.

When Mitt Romney decides to poke a stick at an already delicate situation by essentially telling Palestinians that their lack of economic growth and wealth is because their culture sucks, that is the mark of a man who has no f*cking clue how to deal with people. And while sure, it's nice to have someone with business background willing to help fix the economy, a good part of the job of the president is knowing how to listen and work with other world leaders without offending them.
 
2012-08-23 10:28:14 AM
Obama.

He hasn't shown he's waiting for Israel to trigger the end times, while Romney has had to state that he is not the White Horseman of the LDS.
 
2012-08-23 10:28:19 AM
Obama.

fark Bibi, fark the Israeli right wing.
 
2012-08-23 10:29:03 AM
Congress can always declare war.......Obama can support the declaration of war or get impeached.

I'd wager that supporting Israel is one of those areas that both sides of the aisle can agree upon, even if it means eating some of their own on the way to war.
 
2012-08-23 10:29:23 AM
If the adventurous Bush, Jr. did not attack Iran, why would the democrat and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Obama?

An interesting question, for sure. But first. Why the lower case on Democrat? Is the peace prize thingy being brought up just to be snarky?

Now, why didn't Bush attack Iran? And North Korea? And Syria? And Canada.

I don't think W had the nads, frankly.
 
2012-08-23 10:30:17 AM
obama, even more. we need to be involved in LESS wars, not more. any candidate who could credibly deliver less war would rise in my estimation.
 
2012-08-23 10:34:03 AM

LarryDan43: Diogenes: "If the cafeteria serves tater tots today, will that make you more likely to vote for Obama or Romney?"

Not for all the secret nuclear weapons capability in Israel.
 
2012-08-23 10:36:04 AM
Obama, because I'm a US citizen, not an Israeli.
