This is quite a scary prospect. Iran seem to interested in causing a world wide political stir than anything else at the minute. I can appreciate that they want to be taken seriously by the west, but this just seems ridiculous! This will simply alienate them from the further and creasting more friction. Personally I believe this is one step closer to World War 3.

I shall edit when other sources are available.

The UN has shown its hand. With the support of China and Russia, although I personally think that is just rhetoric, Iran knows more sanctions, more censures, are coming.

With Israel halting settlements for 10-months (my guess is this was done AFTER Obama assured Israel the support of the UN in censuring Iran), much will be done to "secure peace" in the Middle East. Since peace in the Middle East is not conducive to the US need for more oil, more money, more war....it won't happen.

If there was peace in the Middle East, where would we be able to test out drones, perfect spying, blow things up at will....etc. Without terrorists, the US loses a ton of money and a ton of illegal policies (Homeland Security Act, etc.) all enacted under the guise of protecting the world from said terrorists.

It's time to ramp up the "Iran is evil" mantra again. The next news article will be: "Israel warns about the threat from Iran if additional nuclear enrichment plants are built...." With a quote that will go something like: "Israel is prepared to handle Iran on its own if it does not have the support of the U.S..." I made all of that up, but it's probably pretty close to what's next.

Many have been saying that Israel and Iran will commence fighting around the end of December....this seems to be in support of that theory.

And the war drums continue to beat steadily....

We, the US don't want Iran to have The Bomb because they will use it to take over the world. Oil or not, perhaps we should nuke them all to hell Now. Forget sanctions. They do not work.

Thats what the Old USA would do.. the USA that stood for the USA an not a new world order. Now, we will not nuke Iran back to hell because it's not politically correct! If navy Seals cant even punch a known terrorist in the face for his murders, then how are we going to defend this country when Iran decides to send a nuke our way?..

Obama has already said he wants this nation defenseless. I think he plans to let Iran Nuke us in exchange for Iran and China taking over the USA thinking they will set him up as dictator to rule in their stead. - as crazy as that sounds.. I never thought I'd ever see a US president and congress sell us out to socialism! Anything can happen in today's crazy world!

Heck, I say we Nuke the UN in New York first - get those traitors off our soil, then nuke Iran.

Well...I think the we (US) should stay out of this. If I were Israel however I would nuke Iran already. It seems obvious Iran is hellbent on destroying Israel.

I am not talking about destroying all of Iran but I would definitely destroy as much of there Nuke capability as I could and probably take out all of their Air Force and Naval Assets as I could. I would use nukes to make it short and ensure destruction on a scale that would take a century or more to rebuild.

Again its none of my or our (US) business but If I were Israel there is no way I would let Iran have nukes if I had a way to stop it.

The world could do nothing to Israel other than condemn them perhaps force the current leadership out of office. If I were an Israeli PM I would sacrifice my self to the greater good of the Nation.

On the other side of the coin If I were Iran I would make nukes to counter and further my foreign policy objectives.

Whatever the reasons for this happening, it is a VERY dangerous and REAL situation that is going on. Im pleased that Gordon Brown isnt that puppy to Barack like Tony was to George.

Of course this could all be propoganda to make the west think that Iran intend to do more than what they are actually capable of. I don't know how much of a bluff they could be trying to pull!

This is what happens when the USA has a president that is perceived
as weak. Maybe Obama should fly Air Force One to Iran and then bow
to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. After bowing he could apologize for the
USA being such an evil nation. Maybe that will help.



Obama could take Sean Penn with him.

WOW! Look at all the armchair pussy Generals talking about nuking this and nuking that.


Seriously, do any of you even realise just how lame and childish talking about nuking anything really is?

IS Iran a threat to the USA, with all it's nuclear weapons and the most technoligical army on the planet? Is Iran a threat to Europe, or to anyone else for that matter?
Ok, Israel gets it's panties in a twist, but they do with just about anyone who doesn't bow down to them.

It's the ones that already have nuclear weapons that are the danger to us all.

You are so wrong. The ones that already have the nukes are not resigned to use them. Iran on the other hand has indicated in the past many times that they would use nukes as an offensive weapon. In their world view it is a god given mandate that they take over the world because the world is theirs to take. No other country thinks this way. Go study world history.

Hey Pal, disagreeing with someone is one thing but before you call someone names you better be prepared to come out from behind that computer and back it up. - now whose an armchair General? That language is not appropriate on ATS.

Iran has stated they mean to take over the world? Well I must have missed that, can you post links to actual evidence where Iran's leaders have stated this?
That would sure be an eye opener.
While you are at it, can you also post links to where Iran has said it intends to "nuke" anybody.

I don't see Iran having military outposts and bases across the world. I don't see Iran starting wars of aggression based on downright lies. I don't see Iranian corporations and bankers financing wars of aggression against innocent people so they can rape a country for it's resources. It is only our countries that do that, and suckers swallow the propaganda every time that is used to justify it.

The language I used is appropriate. If calling for nuclear war against another sovereign state that has not attacked you is appropriate for ATS then calling someone a "pussy armchair general" for saying it pales into insignificance, surely!

You make tons of claims with no sources. As far as I recall, and I've been following this pretty closely (since I need Israel to attack Iran, badly!), Iran has never said anything about "nuking" anyone.

Your American redneck nonsense has gone overboard. I don't think I'll be visiting New Orleans.

Personally, I think Russia is working with Iran to drum up turmoil in the Gulf area, and thus drive up oil prices.

Russia has already shown their prime concern is oil prices.

Russia Worries About the Price of Oil, Not a Nuclear Iran

And Iran is trying to buy S-300 missiles from Russia, that has been delayed for quite a while.

Iran pursues delivery of S-300 missiles from Russia

Could it be Russia has been delaying the delivery of these missiles until Iran announces an expansion on their nuclear program to increase tension in the Middle East?

These people think nothing of sending suicide bombers to attack anyone they wish. And you doubt they would use nukes? It's a bigger bomb for a bigger bang! LOL that's rich., no seriously.. how much are they paying you?

more to come.

I have been hearing of how the Iranians hate and want to destroy America ever since the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979.

What makes you think i'm a redneck? Do you even have any idea what a redneck is?

why do you need Israel to nuke Iran so badly? You got a bet going?

suicide bombers...USA drones...difference? one costs alot more money. Iran would use nukes like every other nation in the world(if they had them) It's basically a big flashing neon sign that says let us get on with our own business and don't think twice about attacking us. But they are nowhere near the refinement level needed. Israel has been playing the iran nearly has nukes tune since the mid 90's. All the while actually having illegal nukes. Basically the last country who should be lecturing another regarding the legality/illegality of Irans actions. Which i should say up to now are completely legal. Iran actually cooperates with the IAEA to a certain extent...when was the last time they inspected Dimona?

You know, usually I am the first to defend Iran's right for nuclear power for civilian purposes AND a nuclear weapon to keep the west among other countries off their backs.

However, in light of this news, are they asking for military action? It seems over the last month it's been one defiant and arrogant move after another.

Iran would do fine if it simply cooperated on some level or another, whether it be with enrichment or inspections. Anything to appease those who are foaming at the mouths.

They are giving the world reason to doubt their intentions and their motives.

Sad sad times are ahead for us all.

It is no doubt to get some support from the Iranian people themselves aswell. The Iranian government aint doing so well right now i imagine, but the iranian people on the whole are a proud peoples who think they deserve the right to nuclear power as any other nation does. This will be sending a message to them as much as to the international community.

Agreed, the Iranian regime is at risk of being toppled. My question is, why isn't the CIA attempting to spear head an effort for regime change?

If any country needs it's badly it's Iran. The people there are wonderful, I've met quite a few in my days. They are just like any informed person of the world, except they are kept down and their voices are muffled because of their over bearing government.

I for one would be in favor of regime change my any means that gave the Iranian people control of their country.

But as it is, they are trying to appease the masses by showing off their muscles to their own country men. Kind of a strange way of going about things, but it's just alienating the rest of the world.

It's like North Korea all over again.

The CIA are already funding terrorist groups inside Iran. And i don't think it's safe to say they want regime change...they simply didn't like the result of the presidential elections. Course there were folks who wanted to get rid of the supreme leader aswell,but as far as im aware you could hardly call it a consensus among the country.
