Dinobot: Elfich: The "reasoning" I have heard (and you can take the term "reasoning" loosely) is as such:

Isreal occupies Jerusalem. When the second coming/rapture/megajesus comes down and starts obliterating the unclean; Jerusalem/Isrealies/SuperFundies will be spared. So the fundies in government are trying to: stay on the good side/manipulate/coddle the country that holds Jerusalem.

Yeah, its whacko. My own biases may have screwed up what I heard.

I've heard almost the same line of reasoning, but with a twist, from my crazy uncle, who is a sbc pastor,... attack iran to trigger the 2nd coming of jesus


I'm sure that an all-powerful god is just sitting around waiting for mortals to start a war in order to make his return. It's in his appearance rider, right under where he demands red and green M&M's in his dressing room because he really likes Christmas.

Vodka Zombie: SilentStrider: I really wish someone would tell that guy to stfu and gbtw.

Apparently, his job is to go around begging other nations to start wars on Israel's behalf. But, the shutting the fark up part would be nice for a freakin' change.


Isreal, the geopolitical equivalent of the drunken frat boy who grabs every chick's ass at the bar, then expects his friends to jump in when one of their boyfriends wants to kick his ass.

Ah, see, here's the proof that he's gotten on Romney's press team: he blames everyone but himself for his own actions. Clearly Republican.

Dwight_Yeast: I've always said that trying to create Zion in the Holy Land was a mistake, and that we should have offered the Jews half of Utah after WWII.

/would have balanced the Mormons out
//and started all sorts of new problems.



It would be much more entertaining watching the Jews and Mormons have a constant war of passive aggression. It would certainly be preferable to what we have now.

So much for anti-semitic "canards".

God must have chosen them, tobe the world's shiat disturbers.

digistil: Silly Jesus: digistil: Honest question: WTF is stopping Israel from bombing Iran? Why does Israel demand the US be the one with blood on their hands?

I think that our military might be a tad bit larger and better equipped.

So we should fight wars for our allies, when they are capable themselves? As of this past week, Ben has said Israel has the capability to take out all Iranian nuclear sites. So why demand the US do it instead?


it costs money.

FWIW, Romney and Benji are investment BFFs from Boston in the 70s. Being filthy stinking rich trumps religion for them.


They have the same religion: they both worship Mammon.

Silly Jesus: Cythraul: Why do we have to unconditionally and eternally support Israel again?

There IS something to be said for having such an ally in that area of the world.


In that case, I vote for Iran, because they have a metric shiatload of oil.

Tarl3k: blastoh: This whole conflict between Israel and the Middle east has run its course, and it is time to do something about it.

We need to finally fix this problem.
We need a solution.

A 2 state solution, perhaps?


maybe he wants a final solution?

Actually, the fundies believe God's also going to destroy the Jews because they deny the divinity of Christ.

The fundies don't actually care about the people of Israel. They just want to make sure the Jeebus Runway is left intact.

Not even his own cabinet believes this shiat.

And as soon as the Jethro states realize that gassing up their F350 will cost about a grand if we go to war with Iran, whatever tenuous support they might lend to blow up more muslims will quickly dissipate.

stpauler: Two words: Fark Israel.


Seriously. How much shiat would we not be involved in if we just left things to their own devices... You all want to claim a rock and hill as the basis of your various Religions of Peace(tm)? Either get along, or blow each other to hell- but we'll be... uhh.. over there...
