Iran has made the statement that they will strike first if they feel threatened by the US or Israel. I have not been able to confirm this statement through any other credible sources, so it is hard to say in what context this statement was made.

Either way, war is brewing in Iran and I think it will come to a head soon. Let's hope not!

They are just running their mouths. They will not do anything unless it is to drop a nuke on Israel. They are out matched and they know it. I just hope, when this does happen, we let the Air Force make the place a parking lot and send in the army to paint the lines. We are potentially looking at the next 1,000 years of whiskey bottles and light bulbs!

Lets hope so!
no, not really. This shouldn't be happening, but we all know its coming. So might as well try to make some money out of it.

Really? How was I lucky enough to have two ridiculous posts one after another?

Make some money and turn Iran into glass? God help us all!

How do I recommend thi post as a contender for most ignorant of the year?

Yep...that's the answer mate, kill an entire population based on propaganda. Uncle Sam would be proud of you! By the way, do you realise the contradiction in your opening statement?

I mean, 'they will not do anything unless it is to drop a nuke on Israel'. So, you're admitting the potential an willingness of Iran to do so but at the same time they're running their mouths?

Ever since the WW3/2012 topics have developed (ergh..2012) ATS has been inundated with daydreamers pushing speculation and yeehaw gungho US patriots who struggle to even comprehend the horrors of what they (YOU) wish to see happen....ATS is going to the dogs.

I think you had all of us..

Really though, on the topic, Iran is just flexing. They see nations around them crumbling to the false arab spring and 1, don't wan't to be next and 2, want to position themselves as a dominate power player in the new Middle East to come.

Nice try.

I see absolutely nothing humorous with regards to nuclear war and genocide and to make jokes with such light heartedness suggests a deficit in mental capacity.

Oh, I just noticed the sentiment in your profile under your name...the penny has dropped for me

Fine.....If you don't believe that was pure sarcasm, then look up all my posts here on ATS. Again, lighten up. Your killing me man! By the way, that is Hebrew under my name. It means, ( Hear oh Israel, the Lord your God, is One). I have been teaching myself Hebrew so I can read the Old Testament in its original language because I fell there has been a loss of meaning through translating to other languages.

And the World is hating America more and more...why?

Oh right...because of excrement like this.

Settle down Junior. We'll all get our chance to die for those that would use us in their personal Game of Thrones.

ALL of us.

Pathetic

Why even bother posting relentless sarcasm? There's people here who use ATS as the great information exchange portal it is and to participate in discussion.

For the topic at hand; it may be a desperate, 11th hour attempt to deter an attack or as previously mentioned-mere posturing. My guess is posturing.

Really, I can't see how this is any different than America's justification for the War on Terror, strike first mentality. IF, notice the italics, IF Iran did strike first because of a presumed threat.. how would it be wrong? They would be using our own justification. See how that works?

On topic now....I do think Iran is rattling the saber. The whole Middle East is falling apart. It does amaze me that all the countries in the Middle East fight over the super little country of Israel. It is so small. Have any of you served in the Middle East? In the military I mean?

Good point!

All I can say is that Iran has had a lot more threats from other nations, leading them to believe an attack is imminent.

What does the size of israel have to do with anything?
If we are going to use size references, a country of 7 million with 400 nukes makes them them biggest threat on the planet - per-capita.
Numbers are fun.

Well, if I lived in a neighborhood where everyone wanted to kill my family and burn my house down, I would have some superior weapons too! Lets not forget that Israel has had these weapons for a long time without using one of them! Obviously, they have proved they can be responsible with such strong weapons. Yep, they have had 10's of 1,000's of rockets fired into their country without using one of their nukes. If that is not a testament to their patience, I don't know what is.

2 sides of a coin both covered in Blood

1/3 of Ats believes a fight with Iran is wrong for 2 reasons, the first any one who understands Iran at all knows the majority of it's youth population is relatively open, well educated and not a group of people you want to see die. Second, the prospect of a strike would almost certainly lead the world to WW3

The Other 3rd of Ats does actually want to hit them because they understand fully that those in charge of Iran believe with a whole and devoted self that the deaths do not matter and that this war would usher in the Mahdi and this insanity is what they believe with all their hearts and of course they wield absolute power over their nation.

The conundrum

Both sides are correct

This is the exact same futility that Europe faced as Hitler rose to power, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

There is of course another group on ats that has the proper and only course of action, survive, this war of course will not be able to sustain itself, life as we know it will collapse quickly when this become global, all conspiracies will matter not, the survivalists will win the day.
