I agree with everything of what he said, Imagine if US attacks Iran or even trys to invade it? all hell will break loose in Iraq and it would be something impossible the US can do.... so many insurgents and a size of iran is just too big and impossible to take over.



CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said he had advised the United States against attacking Iran, predicting that Tehran would react through its influence over Shi'ite Muslim communities in Arab countries in the Gulf.

In remarks to Egyptian newspaper editors published on Wednesday, Mubarak also said an Israeli attack on Iran was most unlikely because Tehran would respond by launching ballistic missiles at the Jewish state.

The United States has declined to rule out military force against Iran, which it says it suspects of working on nuclear weapons under the cover of its civilian nuclear program.

Mubarak, speaking on his way back from the Gulf on Monday, said he discussed the consequences of a U.S. attack on Iran with U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, who visited Egypt in January.

Iran wouldn’t be taken over, who wants to do that? The USA and friends will utterly and completely destroy Iran’s offensive military capability though.

Iraq fell to the coalition handedly. It was as nothing to destroy the military of Iraq. Don’t confuse urban, gorilla warfare with Iranian backed insurgents fighting an occupier with a military vs. military fight.

There would be NO OCCUPATION of Iran; it would simply be an attack against its offensive military capabilities. And make no mistake about this: The USA and coalition friends would walk all over any Iranian military force, easily. Then fly home.

You guys confuse a difficult occupation with military capability. That’s the shortcoming of your logic. What happens in the streets of Iraq today has absolutely nothing to do with the ability of the USA to destroy an enemy military force.

If the Iranians saw what is happening in Iraq, no doubt those in power are afraid of seeing their own country fall into chaos if they decided to respond in retaliation for a U.S. attack on nuclear facilities. Better just leave it at that.

Air striking Iran will start the big war.....and bring in police state hell to the U.S.....it's all gonna change soon.....See everyone thinks we'll just stop them and it's all over, another country conquered....wrong.....the picture is much bigger......We're on the brink....Hell is coming here.....Either a convenient attack will happen here, Iran will be blamed...we'll air strike the Iranian nuke sites, the big war that has been prophecied will start, freedoms will be crushed here, doesn't matter who you are rich or poor..the enemy here are the globalists, not arabs not terrorists who we don't even know, it's the shadows in the background running the show...and as for the future, well as more times passes here we'll see where this all goes...but I sense the spark to come soon.

Now I wouldn't go as far as to say it might start ww111 but in an already volatile world is that a chance worth taking?I remember this old movie in the eighties Threads it was called in which ww111 broke it in Iran and looking at the situation now it does seem like a somewhat likely flashpoint,well here's hoping for the best.Is Iran having nuclear power worth a third world war?Israel has it and they don't need it anymore than any other middle eastern state does and no action was taken against them.I am sorry to say but Israel is a bully using nuclear blackmail.I don't want to risk being called an "anti semite"but Israel is and always be a terrorist nation and radical Zionists are as bad as radical Muslims.
