I don't see what good a strike on Iran would do, besides make the Iranians say "See! We told you that Israel hates us! See why we need a nuclear deterrent?"

It seems that Iran is going to get a bomb sooner or later, you can't keep 70 year old technology away from people who really want it.

I kind of think the fact that Israel hasn't destroyed the Iranian facilities is kind of proof Iran isn't nearly as close as everyone thinks. The destroyed that reactor in Iraq in the 80's, and that facility in Syria recently.

Israel doesn't f*ck around when it comes to threats to their national security. There's no way in hell they'd wait till the bombs were being assembled to attack.

Come on guys; we'd just be blowing stuff up, it's not like we'd be trying to bring democracy or anything....

I have no problem with targeted tactical strikes against Iranian nuclear facilities, but we certainly don't need to get caught up in a full scale long term engagement.  If they get close, let Israel take out the offending research station, and when they build it back in a few years they can go out and do it again.
 
2013-07-16 12:06:46 PM
Israeli and Iran love doing this to each other.

"I'm going to do it this time! For absolute real! You're going down in 5...4...3..."

Repeat endlessly.
 
2013-07-16 12:07:26 PM
Get it over with already. Please nuke each other out of existence. We are tired of hearing from you and your stupid bullshiate.

What Iran needs are dozens of inflatable reactors...

You can find stories online from as far back as the 80s saying Iran is 6 months away from building a nuke... I'm sure it's real this time though!

The F-ing Israelis have been saying the Iranians are weeks away from a bomb for the past 30 years.

As soon as Israel admits to its nuclear stockpile and allows UN inspections they can go pound sand
 
2013-07-16 12:14:01 PM
Israel is like that small cartoon dog picking fights that the big dog behind him has to deal with. "Go on Spike! Get 'em Spike! Come on Spike, get 'em!" I hope the Obama administration let's Israel know (in no uncertain terms) that a unilateral strike by Israel means just that - a unilateral strike. If Israel wants to make a mess of their own bed then they can lie in it.
 
2013-07-16 12:14:17 PM
FTA: may have to
perhaps


Oh who cares. Israel has said this kind of crap before, other governments other PMs. Wake me up when "threaten" means they really will.

/and when I say "wake me up"
//I mean carry me into the bomb shelter
///don't wait for me to wake up
 
2013-07-16 12:14:39 PM
Iran has been on the verge for going nuclear since the mid '80s.

What's the new threatdown this time?
 
2013-07-16 12:14:49 PM

JohnAnnArbor: Yeah, Al-Jazeera.  Whatever.


Lets head over to RT and get Putin's spin on this
 
2013-07-16 12:16:22 PM
I think Israel and the Republican chickhawk brigade underestimates how much Americans really care about Iran.

I really, really think that if Israel does something and drags America into it, that will be the last time American are willing to back up Israel.

It's one thing to help them when they actually have missiles heading their way being volleyed by Saddam's army, it's entirely different to back up a preemptive military strike.

For one, we're war weary. We want our boys home from Iraq and Afghanistan, not being dragged into yet another conflict, this one against a relatively (to the last two) well outfitted and trained army in a huge country that we've farked with enough in the past.

Put the entire Middle East together and call it Afghanipakiranistan. Then, either people will get along, or there will be a huge new glass parking lot.

You think that anything that happens in world events doesn't conform in every tiniest detail to the Zionists' secret Jew-Plan?  The fact that there appears to be no Plan is simply iron-clad evidence of the existence of the Plan.

I've actually started to become convinced that what my more hawkish Iranian friends say its true: these moderate iranian presidents are allowed to run by the mullahs who actually run the country. Oscasionally they "win", but these guys are meaningless actors. They only serve one purpose... to lull the West and the media into a false sense of complacency because they think Iran is becoming more moderate. The moderates may be an active or unwitting part of a system set up to buy the mullahs as much time as they can get to build their bomb.

We should proactively turn Israel into a glass parking lot.

That country would have fantastic food and some of the best taxi drivers in the world.
 
2013-07-16 12:20:45 PM
Meh.
I sure hope they go at it unilaterally.
The world, NATO, USA, etc. is not going to act against Iran physically... no one has the money for it anymore.
  ...but Israel might... small strategic bombing and then they can handle the blow-back of terrorism upon its people that will follow.

This is really a non-story.
Same thing as the last 5 years.
 
2013-07-16 12:21:17 PM
It's time to tell Israel to take a hike. I'll bet that would shut them up.

Awwwww... who am I kidding? They'd just call up Henry Kissinger, who would call his buddies at the NSA, and get whatever info he needs to blackmail whoever in Congress doesn't go along with the plan. Don't ya love democracy?

Exactly, he's just the Mullahs' beard, with about as much real power in Iran as the White House Press Secretary in Washington.

Obamas was giving Netenyahu the cold shoulder fairly recenty, right? If Netenyahu tried to drag us back into yet another prolonged mid-east conflict, I bet Obama will smirk and wish him luck out there.

/Netenyahu is retarded

Iran has an air force and an army.  The Israelis only have experience lately unleashing violence on FAR less better equipped enemies, like peace activists, kids with rocks, old men in wheelchairs, etc.

I'd imagine it would end badly for Israel, especially considering that 90 seconds after a strike, Hezbollah would be hitting Northern Israel.  Plus Gaza and the WB would heat up, ditto Egypt.

Bluster from Bibi.

Please come with a citation for the moderate candidate not being elected fair and square over the hawkish types he was running against.

If you can't, then you're just spouting bullshiat.

I make it ambiguous so that the reader can apply their own interpretation.  I'm like the Marcel Duchamp of Fark posts.
