This sounds more like anti Israel rhetiric than any facts.....
Most of isreals strikes, with the exception of just a few preimotive ones..... Are in response to aggression....
When you're surrounded by countries who have told you since your inception they want to wipe you off the map because of your religion.... And have indeed attacked them....you're gonna be at the ready perpetually
We get it you don't like Israel and don't mind killing innocent people there to prove it
Sardinia better watch their ass.

Probably hit the cheese shop. Iranian cheese is terrible.
That's taking criticism to an all-new, unprecedented level I'd say.
"Your Cheese is SO BAD, we're bombing your cheese shop!"
If Israel attacked a military base of a nation that has not attacked them, they are attacking Syria not Iran. In my opinion . Just a threat is not enough .... I can not go blow up my neighbor`s house because he threatened me. The Iranians and Russians are in Syria at the invitation of Syria, just as we are in Isreal at their invitation . That does not give Isreal the right to attack Syria`s guests because they want to.
We need to stay out of all of this, and if Israel wants to play stupid games they should win stupid prizes without us doing a freaking thing about it. They and they alone are responsible for their actions.
I don't think threats equate to an act of war. Countries get threatened all the time. Don't you think we threaten countries all the time. You never see them come back and bomb us though.

Why would Iraq allow Iran to use its land?
2nd, Turkey has sided with Russia, so why wouldn't Russia's pipeline just go through Turkey?
Also, why would Turkey allow the US to go through it for the pipeline?
"We are eager to have a gas pipeline from Qatar to Turkey," Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the ruler of Qatar, said last week, following talks with the Turkish president Abdullah Gul and the prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the western Turkish resort town of Bodrum. "We discussed this matter in the framework of co-operation in the field of energy. In this regard, a working group will be set up that will come up with concrete results in the shortest possible time," he said, according to Turkey's Anatolia news agency. Other reports in the Turkish press said the two states were exploring the possibility of Qatar supplying gas to the strategic Nabucco pipeline project, which would transport Central Asian and Middle Eastern gas to Europe, bypassing Russia. A Qatar-to-Turkey pipeline might hook up with Nabucco at its proposed starting point in eastern Turkey. Last month, Mr Erdogan and the prime ministers of four European countries signed a transit agreement for Nabucco, clearing the way for a final investment decision next year on the EU-backed project to reduce European dependence on Russian gas.
I gotta question this pipeline too. Why wouldnt we support a pipeline that goes through jordan and Israel and then the sea, instead of it veering off to run through an unstable and unfriendly country/countries?

Prime Minister of Israel is preparing to Address the Citizens of Israel, regarding IRAN.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is reported to be preparing to address the nation at 8 pm Monday night, April 30, in connection with the Iranian nuclear program. The emergency security cabinet session he called earlier in Tel Aviv ended after two hours. No communique was issued. The prime minister cancelled the rest of his engagements for the day, including the speech he was scheduled to deliver at the opening of the Knesset summer session and a regular meeting with his Likud faction.
The government will Monday night table a bill empowering the security cabinet to declare war or order a large-scale military operation without submitting the decision to full government approval. The full House will be asked to expedite the passage of the bill through three readings. The Foreign Affairs and Security Committee Monday night rejected the clause vesting in the prime minister and defense minister the authority to declare war or a substantial military operation without the prior approval of the government or the security cabinet.
