I was reading about this on an Israeli news site this morning and they got the story from the World Socialist Web Site.

They made it sound like a sham.

Turkey apparently has seized a Syrian airline passenger jet travelling from Moscow to Syria and taken cargo off it. You can bet your boots they didn't do that on their own, in retaliation for a few accidental shells into Turkish territory.

NATO for sure, had a hand in that seizure.

This kind of thing is very dangerous and could backfire and lead to confrontations between Russia and Turkey on the Black Sea.

Russia, I believe, is being told to "## or get off the pot" by NATO, vis a vis Syria.

The air obviously needs to be cleared on the Syrian situation and I think that NATO is using Turkey to clear it. The ball is in Russia's court.

What is in danger of happening is a major war between Turkey and Syria. This will be a proxy war with NATO providing all communications and satellite surveillance support to Turkey as they once did for Iraq in their war against Iran. NATO is determined to topple Assad.

Russia is facing questions. "Do we want the Assad regime to fall? What is next after that? Is it time to confront Turkey on the Black Sea? Is it time to start a massive airlift of military supplies and support into Syria?"

This situation is developing in seriously unpleasant ways.

This is a fear bringing process.

We are cool.

Iran should have been invaded early 2012.

But we were and we are safe.

All these naughty games will come back towards you one day.

US is not going to a war with Iran because,striking them will only make the people and the government of Iran more united.It will also make all US bases around Iran a living hell,as well as making Israel a dart board for Iranian,Hezbollah and Hamas missiles,and it will greatly threaten the inland security of the US....No need to mention the possible closure of the strait of hormuz,inflation in the oil prices and the creation of more Iranian devotion towards nuclear programs, yeahh this time the real bombs because you gave them a very good excuse to obtain some!....And of course that is only if Russia and china don't intervene which i really doubt....So i think there are still some sane people remained in charge in the US and Israel's government who will hopefully prevent this from happening.,,or maybe not you can never be so sure.

Vote for any president you want, doesn't matter what so ever. Money still reigns supreme. American history proves you 100% wrong sir. Trust me we all wish it worked like you think it does.

If Israel swings America into a war with Iran, and people in the US don't start massive protests, I'm going to lose most of my faith in humanity.

This whole lie about Iran wanting to nuke Israel is bull#. They quoted him out of context, what he really said was he wanted the Israel regime dismantled. Iran has not invaded a single country in over 200 years. Don't buy into this propaganda bull#.

Not to mention Iran has an actual Military, not like the resistance were encountering in Iraq and Afghanistan. Plus, Russia stated they will back up Iran when the time comes.

2013 is going to be a giant cluster#. 15+ trillions of dollars in debt, the dollar is predicted to crash, 100th anniversary of the Fed, and the war in Iran.

Get ready for the false flag and the massive propaganda.

I bet anything that Iran has their bomb and the "good ol' boys" is just waiting for that tube to get fueled up.

They need a reason to conduct a strike and from where im sitting (behind the screen) I don't see a good enough reason.

I am so sick and tired of these "sources" conditioning the minds of people that we must strike this country. Every other day its always news about Iran but yet, they're just minding their own business I suppose.

I've been thinking about this for a while, i dont know if you have, but this is a VERY IMPORTANT POINT

March 11 2011..... BOOM EARTHQUAKE THEN TSUNAMI. Then, Nuclear Rector close to Meltdown in Japan.
Its still going on a year later and alot of radiation has leaked.

What am i saying? Basically, if we attack Irans Nuclear plants, wont that bring the rectors to the same, but maybe worse effects that Japan had? Not only might it leak radiation to Iran, but to all countries around there.... In the end, there will be civilian casualties.

Heres another Japan reference.... the US is the earthquake and Israel is the Tsunami. The nuclear plant is Iran's plant. The Earthquake makes a first strike (attack) and weakens the reactor by possibly shutting it down or failing it. Then The Tsunami attacks completely failing/destroying the system and making it unstable (making Iran unstable or possibly the nuclear program unstable). Then radiation is leaked everywhere affecting alot of people.

Sadly, i do want a war, even though it can be bad/fatal...Why? So that everyone can wake the # up!!!!

You could have written this in 2006. Nothing will happen in October but I'd love to be wrong.

The source is Russia Today. This is a "news" outlet known for pushing Russian government propaganda...

Sky news went into full on warmongering mode yesterday here in the uk. The msm have been strangely quiet on the isssue for months, then all of a sudden we have panels of so called experts lining up to tell us all what a terrible threat Iran is. Also, all of their top war reporters have been repositioned to areas where conflict is expected if Iran is attacked. We had special reports from the Israeli border with lebanon, another guy reporting onboard the USS Eisenhower in the Arabian Gulf and the in-house expert using his fancy maps and graphics to highlight possible attack scenarios, this stuff was running on a loop all day long....

Do they know something we don't? certainly feels like it...

Well looks like it just got turned up!

Although no plan of action has been set in stone yet, the source says the attack will likely be from the sky and consist of drone strikes and bomber jets for only “a couple of hours” at best but would not require more than “a day or two” of action.

I love how they think that they can walk into Iran, expect no retaliation and simply walk home without Iran firing a shot and the world will be a safer place

Wow! Let's tell the world. Let Iran know that we're gonna be sneakin up on em.

Not any more of a surprise when we invaded Kuwait...we took weeks/months to set up our staging area and then rolled on in...remember shock and awe? Talk about a build up..

I don't know.

I think a strike at this time would have detrimental political implications for the administration, especially after Biden's debate insistence that "they haven't got a weapon" and that everyone needs to "calm down," as well as a campaign platform at least partially built upon getting us out of two protracted wars. I don't think much public sentiment in support of military action against Iran exists at the moment, certainly among their own party base, but I could be wrong of course.

Iran has enriched uranium to around 20%, whereas my understanding (please educate me if I am wrong as I am a layperson) is that you need somewhere around 90% for it to be considered weaponized fissile material. So they would have a difficult time selling the world and the general U.S. public on a military strike against facilities that haven't yet been shown to have produced fissile material for even one bomb. They have - according to the IAEA - produced a detonator which could, in theory, be used in such a device. So do we attack the location or manufacturer of the detonator and nothing else, or attack everything remotely related, as well as their air defenses of course, and then try to spin it?

That is not to say that we will not ever reach a point where it becomes easier to sell the public on support or strikes. Especially if the level of enrichment goes much higher, or there is some sign of an actual weapon. That is also not to say that Israel might not simply act unilaterally. But their capacity to do so - the distances involved without refueling, the use of foreign air space, etc. - are in question as far as I know. And the all but guaranteed Iranian reprisals - both conventional and asymmetric (particularly the latter i.e. terror) would also have enormous political implications, all while we're mere weeks from an election.

It just seems a bit farfetched to me... at least at this particular point in time. Perhaps after the election, and if more evidence of an imminent threat (real or manufactured) surfaces.

Just my two cents. Peace.

As I have posted again and again....the decision to remove the current Iranian Regime which has very little support of their own people...the numbers...
OVER 70% of all Iranians are under the age of 30 years old.
94% of all Iranians wish to have GOOD RELATIONS with the UNITED STATES.
95% of all Iranians believe that Iranian Elections are FIXED.
There are MILLIONS OF IRANIAN AMERICANS who have just recently been able to communicate with Family Members in Iran that have pierced the Iranian Regimes Internet Filters with the AID OF SMART PHONES CONNECTED TO SOCIAL NETWORK INTERNET SITES...and this communication between Iranian Americans and the Iranian Population is seen as a THREAT TO THE CONTINUED REIGN OF THE OLD RELIGIOUS GUARD.
Iran has broken just about every rule in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty it signed.
Iran has made the mistake of threatening to Block the STRAIT OF HORMUZ.
The Iranian Military Leadership is holding secret Military to Military Talks with the U.S. and in the even of any SUICIDAL ORDER asked of Iranian Military Forces...they will stand down rather than be OBLITERATED BY U.S. MILITARY FORCES. This will allow the Pro-Democracy Leadership to have Iranian Military Backing to seize Power from the Old Religious Guard.
The Iranian Military is under NO ILLUSIONS OF WHAT A WAR WITH THE UNITED STATES WOULD MEAN as far as the survival of Iranian Military Personal. Split Infinity
