And you know this how? Did you go over to Iran and check?


You'd think by the chest pounding going on between all leaders involved, that Iran has already developed a nuke.

yes that is what is so scary about this situation. i do not believe you can just fly into iran and drop nukes an not expect the same to be done right back, except by missile. and i believe everyone in the m.e. will try to take as many with them as possible. there is no good final outcome. just dont see it. this is all gonna end badly, unless they can all just shut up.

Wait... what?
What in either Israel or Iran is owned by the US?

After that, we can get the heck out of the Middle East and mind our own business.

There really isn't anything either of them can bother us with, so let them blow the whole place sky high...it's been coming for years, so crap or get off the pot.


What is it you americans don't understand about, "you need their oil"

Its called propaganda.

Its what Hitler did to make the Germans feel they were superior and untouchable.

Is this guy even a real professor?

Israel military outnumbered Hezbollah by at least a 6-to-1 ratio in the 2006 Lebanon War. And Israel performed poorly against Hezbollah. Currently Hezbollah has over 40,000 rockets pointed at Israel, 3 times the numbers they had in 2006.


You mistake restraint for poor performance.

Honestly all they have to do is buy 1 or 2 of Chinas submarines, and they could take out NY, LA or Washington before you even knew what happened.

And 1 well placed bomb would end this entire sherade over in israel. Personally, i think the world would be a better place, why the USA is backing them, whoknows, but its gonna cost them dearly in the end run.

Put it this way, with your current foregin policy, (protecting garbage like israel, starting a war every 10 years in someone elses country for oil) The entire world thinks USA is the enemy, or atleast sleeping with it.

Thats right, Europe doesnt like you, Canada thinks your all assholes, And China, Russia, Africa and the entire middle east hate your very existence and everything you stand for, or choose to ignore. Literally Ron Paul is your only chance, not hope, you have no hope in hell. The wars will come, its just someone elses turn to start the wars.

People you would be surprised how easy is to obtain weapons grade plutonium if you already have nuclear reactors. First you need to oxidize plutonium to PuF6 and then distill the mixture in fractionation column. After this process you have to place the product into centrifuge, take the pure PuF6 out of centrifuge and use cesium to form CsF and voila you have weapons grade plutonium, free of other unwanted residue. It's even simpler with uranium, as you don't need nuclear reactor.
So if Iran really wants to have a nuclear warhead they will just already get it.

The US doesn't need their Oil.

Europe does.

The US has lots of oil. It has a Northern trading partner with vast oil reserves, and even vaster unproven reserves.

Petroleum is the field and the club - it isn't the REASON.

I'm in Canada. Let me clarify something for you.

The left wing in Canada doesn't like the US. Most of the center and right have some specific problems with our big trading partner and their tariffs. The religious right in the US doesn't sit real well in most Canadian's bellies.

We'd all prefer the US stop training and arming the people that are going to target all of us in a decade.

"Talking with Americans" makes me laugh.




And most Canadians would side with the UK and the US.

Beware pacifistists. We like peace. We'll gladly work with you on it. If you won't give us peace, eventually our patience runs out and we will still GET it. You just might not like how that turns out for you.

Canadians - in World Wars, a tiny population mobilized - males and females - to constitute a large chunk of the fighters used, and still be a breadbasket. A tiny population, and almost every family gave up multiple members. They were on the fore of the charges. Pilots were trained out of every little hick town to dog fight.

We like peace. But if you don't realize that the populations that founded Canada left a deep mark of working at peace while still be stirred by the drum beats of war.... then you don't know Canadians at all.

Iraq was never a "better place."

If the leaders and religious establishment in Iraq ever decide they want to be a better place, we'll help them with every ounce of our being.

And then you woke up
. Israel will never be defeated in battle again, only by a dumb peace deal will they conquered for a spell.

Iran and the willing Arab nations will try but they will lose quite badly.


even the roman empire collapsed, or the british or mongol, where are they today? it all ends one day buddy

Just search it in ATS, no need to google.


Wiping Israel off the map came from Ahmadenijad during a speech. That speech was covered by IRIB news, Iranian state controlled media. All of the Western media outlets who carried the story got the information directly from the IRIB. I doubt the IRIB is going to mistranslate their leader.






That is your proof, directly from the horses mouth piece.

You know, this happened before. Nations unified against Israel....

...And then Israel destroyed them all and took the largest land claims it ever has in its existence....with technology 20 years older than what the others had...


I don't really care what happens over there. I just don't want to be involved. But I will express my opinion in that Israel is the most technologically advanced nation in the middle east an has the strongest military, tested and true.

Nope.. from the IRIB website when the speech was posted.

Also -
Israeli official implies strike on Iran nukes program is near - Feb 3, 2012


TEL AVIV — Tensions between Israel and Iran are on the rise after a group of top Israeli leaders engaged in a round of saber-rattling on Thursday and Iran’s Supreme Leader answered on Friday with a pledge to "remove" Israel.


Gee, I wonder what remove Israel could possibly mean.... Or is that photoshopped as well?

How about these? - Source

On December 11, 2006, at the "International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust" in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said: “The Zionist regime will be wiped out soon the same way the Soviet Union was, and humanity will achieve freedom”, and elections should be held among “Jews, Christians and Muslims so the population of Palestine can select their government and destiny for themselves in a democratic manner”.[91]



On Israel's 60th birthday, Ahmadinejad said:


Those who think they can revive the stinking corpse of the usurping and fake Israeli regime by throwing a birthday party are seriously mistaken. Today the reason for the Zionist regime's existence is questioned, and this regime is on its way to annihilation."[92]

Ahmadinejad also stated that Israel "has reached the end like a dead rat after being slapped by the Lebanese." Later, he said: "The Zionist regime is dying," and "The criminals imagine that by holding celebrations (...) they can save the Zionist regime from death." Ahmadinejad also stated that "They should know that regional nations hate this fake and criminal regime and if the smallest and briefest chance is given to regional nations they will destroy (it)".[93]



In a speech broadcast on IRINN on September 18 and 23, 2008, Ahmadinejad stated, in regard to the idea of Greater Israel being dead, that:


I would like to declare that the idea of "smaller Israel" is also dead. The very notion of Israel is dead, but they are lagging behind the times. Just like the idea of Greater Israel died 30 years ago, and they did not realize this, and have continued to perpetrate crimes for 30 years... Today, I say to them: The idea of smaller Israel is dead.[98]



In a public address on IRINN TV on June 2, 2008, Ahmadinejad stated:


The Zionist regime has lost its raison d'être. Today, the Palestinians identify with your name Khomeini, your memory, and in your path. They are walking in your illuminated path and the Zionist regime has reached a total dead end. Thanks to God, your wish will soon be realized, and this germ of corruption will be wiped off.[99]



In May 2011, after a protest in which 12 Palestinians were killed, Ahmadinejad said on television "... like a cancer cell that spreads through the body, this regime infects any region. It must be removed from the body," according to a report from Agence France Presse[105]


Please clarify the above statements and explain how its not calling for the removal of Israel from the face of the Earth. Ahmadenijads words to me seem self evident in that is exactly what he is calling / pushing for. The Ayatollah just backed Ahmadenijad up with his own comment of removing Israel.

Please, would you mind to provide us with a direct link to the IRIB Homeppage, so we can check for ourselves. Thank you.

And please don't use Photoshop to support your claims. You should be banned for this.


You are just making yourself the laughing stock of ATS.

MSNBC is not IRIB. It is a western media source and they are lying. Ahmandinejad has NEVER EVER said that he wants Israel wiped off the map or any other claims in that regard.

Everyone you names still exists though.

England willingly backed from its empire when it became unsustainable. A wise choice. The English Empire still exists because the common wealth still operates. The common wealth is the empire made democratic.

The Roman Empire never ended. What happened was a redistribution of powers. The Roman Empire is alive and strong in what we today call the European Union. In many ways every war between the end of the Republic of Rome to the modern age can be classified as a very long Roman Civil War, if you are willing to view it that way.


The Mongolians never really ended. A single man with power and forces from Mongolia conquered, but Mongolia still exists, and what remains is now broken into many other nations. Iran? Turkey? Russia? All of these are the remains of the Mongolian Empire. It was divided up between heirs and continued to exist as a broken coalition, eventually becoming independent nations.

Some empires do collapse. China is filled with these. Japan too. The Russian Empire can be said to collapse because every piece of its existence was consumed and dissolved. But not every empire collapses. Sometimes they simply reform into something else entirely.
