That's the kinda the stories I was talking about.

The same kind of evidence as it would of taken Saddam to prove he didn't have WMD's during the 48 deadline he was given to disarm before the invasion began perhaps?
Kegs I understand your views and arguments about U.S. involvement, thats a given for those opposed to any U.S. involvment in any foreign wars voluntarilly entered into , the premise here is that Israel forces a position based on their percieved policy position forcing the U.S. into one sort of action or another regardless of any existing plan by U.S. politicians.
Oh wait, you mean like the evidences and proofs by your own government concerning Saddam having those alledged WMDs? You know, the very same ones that they accumulated over the years? Like the UN did? Like the French did? Like Russia did? Like Spain did? Like Poland did? Like Germany did? This can go on and on.
For people such as you, its the hands on "I got to see it to believe it" mentality. The same mentality that will also only believe after a nuclear device has gone off in your backyard, too, huh? No matter though, right? After all, it was only strictly a "Neo-Con" bold plan of world domination right? Interesting that your very nation is side-by-side in that alledged goal, dern.

It is VERY clear that Cheney is sending a direct message to the Israeli's.
Vice President's don't "voice fears" in interviews. He is sending a cold message.
I don't think that the US citizens or of any other nation would stand by if the US went after Iran by themselves.

AoB, I'm with you on that sentiment.
I don't think any action by Israel involves troops on the ground (maybe a few commando's) but thats about it.
The issue comes into play that the U.S. has or is percieved to support anything Israel does in a military fashion outside of its borders.
So their is no way that the arab world (maybe european) will not connect Israels actions to U.S. support and permission.
It is these aspects that can lead to another world war as other non-middle eastern countries line up behind their various economic hegomenys.
