I dont think Israel will strike at all...just my gut. I seriously think they have resolved themselves to the fact that Iran is going nuclear and they really dont want to try to stop it. If they dont strike before this saturday i dont think they will at all. No way they will hit a fueled reactor and i dont see them striking all the other facilities but leaving the reactor alone...that wont do them any good either.
I think its a no-go.

I think you'll find that was a miss interpretation. They want zionism wiped off the map not Israel. A bit like when America wanted Communism off the map, it didn't include wiping Russia of the map.
Dont be fooled by the msm about Iran. They havn't started a war in over 300 years, why would they start one now?

There seems to chatter in and out of the Pen as to "what if" during the strike they happen to kill Russian personal. Would that spark a strike response from Iran with the unofficial authorization of the russian military and secret service. Could this be exactly what the Pen was looking for and had been suggested behind doors as a possible exit to the idf and u.s. implications that seem to hamper its progress into the m.e. ?

80% chances they will strike Iran in this 8 days
20% chances they will strike iran after the fuel rod are installed to do more damage to the region
but the risk of international condemnation will increase if they strike after
100% chances they will strike Iran ... like they did in Irak and Syria
the Israeli regime will not let Iran go away with nuclear tech
thats for sure

Yes there is plenty of evidence. Do you know any Iranians? If so ask them. Most of them absolutely HATE their gov't. Look how they brutally killed people and stomped out the 'green revolution'.
The people of Iran are very much like us westerners. They don't want their woman to have to suffer to honor killings, public stonings for infidelity, be forced to where burqas etc. they want to live with certain freedoms, that you speak of, like we do.
as far as nuclear power, yes every country has the right to nuclear power. but when the leaders of certain countries speak of bringing about the 13th Iman and bringing about armageddon. Also speak of wiping Israel off the map, it concerns certain other countries because MAD goes out the door when your advesary is that radical.
and dont give me this 'mis translation bs', destroying Israel has been brought up many times in the past from these same mullahs and their puppets like Ahmadinejad.
when you are involved in international affairs and you see what really goes on behind the curtain, you'd be surprised how corrupt some of these regimes are! yes there is rampant corruption in our own gov't, but some other countries we can't hold a candle to in the corruption department.
when you start dealing with idiots like those in iran, idealism starts being replaced with practicalism.

Any evidence that the majority of Iranians hate the government? And i can guarantee you that any attack on Iranian nuclear sites would unify the people against that aggressor. nuclear power is their right, the people know this and would not react kindly to a a foreign aggressor who has the gall to have illegal nuclear weapons yet preemptively strike their own country for having legal nuclear power.

im an iranian and your completetly wrong. Most of us iranians like our government for standing up to US and Israel. Sorry bud.
And you don't need to nukes to destroy israel.. The country is the size of rhode island, conventional missles will decimate their country and put their people in pain.
The powers in israel surely will know that their country will get obliterated if they attack iran. They are use to fighting against 13 year old's strapped with AKs. That's why they havent attacked and thats why they will never attack Iran, their people will go through a slaughter fest with accurate missles pounding their small country.

You got that right. The secondary media is all over it, and MSM is getting the sheeple ready with Bolton's comments for one of two outcomes.
2.No War Not that this would be done out of kindness, but rather out of the sense of doom felt by the Powers to Be.
iran is allready active in afghanistan , iraq and europe creating havoc and terror.. iran is financing and trying to bring in radical imams and building hate spreading mosques in Europe. mark my words when Iran is attacked doesnt matter preventive or reactionary iran has currently masses in Europe to counter attack by using terror cells made up by former republican gard whom are entering the EU by asyium procedures ( weak Eu law ).
There is a great possiblity that the new ( radical ?? ) mosque at ground zero will be finanaced by Iran even if it is covered.
Undermining nations law and governements is also an act of war and war like it is just like what the US has done in some nation trying regime change by covered operation using cia and spec ops.
