I call bull**** on you
Israel, holder of dozens of nuclear weapons, US made planes, missiles, and air defense systems, and a bitchin' good bio-warfare section that is the
weaker half here?
Coincidentally, all of the things that Israel has, cause it throws a fit if it even appears that the Iranians may get the same.
Israel has enemies in the mid east. I don't doubt it, but as for being bullied, BULLS***
And to quote you,

Israel is a tiny country (one of the world's smallest) facing a threat to its very existence from a much larger, much more powerful near-neighbour
(who is also by the way highly hostile towards my own country, and a lot of other posters' countries). Israel takes measures to stop Russians from
arming said neighbour AGAINST ISRAEL, said neighbour cries to the international community, and people take Iran's side???
Well if you think about it, Israel has launched incursions into their neighbors.
They started the Sinai War against Egypt with US and UK backing through Operation Kadesh
; Operation Focus
was a preemptive strike
starting the 6-Day War; Operation Opera
- a strike on a nuclear reactor in Iraq, which was based on US satellite photos that were outside of
the area which they were supposed to receive access, but that's another issue for another thread about Israeli espionage against allies.
Lets see, then there was also the assassination campaign made famous by the movie, Munich
, named Operation Wrath of God
violated numerous laws, the same ones people scream about when the CIA renditions someone, but heaven forbid we question the Israelis for their
And then there was Operation Peace for Galilee
, where they justified the invasion of Jordan and attacks on the PLO based on an assassination
attempt against their UK ambassador, by a group opposed to the PLO, Abu Nidal.
They have the only nukes in the region, and they have threatened to use them to prevent the Iranians from developing there own so maybe you should
think before you claim that little old Israel is the damsel in distress here.
And what happened to Mutual assured destruction (MAD), well the Israeli's don't want anyone else to have that capability, because the current
situation allows Israeli dictation of Mid East policy. Heaven forbid both psychopaths get guns to shoot each other with in a fair shootout, the
Israelis would rather just execute them for trying to get to the point where the Israelis would be deterred from glassing the country.
And please note, all the latest intel reports say that yes, Iran has enough uranium to build a bomb, but has not proceeded forward with efforts to
make one since at least 2007, some reports indicate they stopped as early as 2003.
edit to add: despite all the pro/anti-israeli/iranian sentiment that is now being spewed all over the place, this is right up the Israeli alley of
things to do. They have seized and diverted ships bringing medical supplies to the Palestinians; violated countless international laws in their hunt
for Nazis, even though they admit that they lack jurisdiction, because the criminals were wanted by Germany for crimes committed in Germany, at a time
when Israel failed to exist; carried out executions and assassinations on every inhabited continent; kidnapped and renditioned foreign nationals who
spoke against the Israeli regime; and have carried on in illegal arms dealings themselves
if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck...maybe it's a duck
