The Israeli gov has failed to to get the US Government to set a clear "red line" for military action in Iran.

As a relative newbie to posting, I get extremely frustrated with duplication. At least you were nice about it and didn't rail me like other members have done in the past. So help me out a sec. If I want to post something newsworthy, I first run a search. If nothing shows up, I look at New Topics. If nothing shows up still, I look at the forum (in this case WWIII). If nothing shows up, I start writing and then post. About 50% of the time, I then get a nasty notification from a member with thousands of points that I was late to the starting line and to F' off. The Mod then 404's it to oblivian. I've never seen such selfishness and animosity displayed by SOME members in a forum like this when you accidentally post a duplicate article. In this case, you posted yours in the Alternative News forum. How could I have detected that? Please help me. What can I do in the future to avoid all this?
“From now onward, we will support and help any nations, any groups fighting against the Zionist regime across the world, and we are not afraid of declaring this,” Khamenei said during a rare Friday prayer lecture at Tehran University.
“The Zionist regime is a true cancer tumor on this region that should be cut off,” the supreme leader said. “And it definitely will be cut off.”
He suggested that Iran’s support for the Palestinian militant group Hamas and for Lebanon’s Hezbollah had helped lead to victory in their battles with “the Zionist state,” as Israel is officially called here.
“We got involved in the anti-Israeli issues, which resulted in victory in the 33-day and 22-day wars,” Khamenei said, referring to Israel’s 2006 war with Lebanon and its incursion into the Gaza Strip in late 2008.

It seems you are another soul who does't really know what he/she is talking about when it comes to the Middle East. The anti-Israeli propaganda on this site is really quite sickening, and it appears that you've been suckered by the drivel and vitriol..
Netenyahu isn't a 'loose cannon' - he's been patient with Iran for a long time. The Jewish state has every right to exist, and when the most dangerously insane, fundamental Islamic leadership in the regional neighbourhood keeps dropping hints about destroying your nation (the Israeli nation is just a tiny little island of Judaism in a vast sea of Islam) - then Netenyahu had every right in the world to tactically pre-empt the blatantly obvious danger, and strike against the nuclear facilities. Look up online how many nobel peace prizes the Israelis have won - they are not the bloodthirsty savages that a great number of ATS'ers would have us believe.
Do you really think Iran doesn't want the bomb? Do you know what Iran would do if they had the bomb?
'Goodnight Israel, travel well..' would sum it up.
A strike against Iran, either unilateral or multilateral, was always going to happen if the Iranians decided to pursue nuclear research - it's as simple as that. If a 20 year-old posts on facebook about wanting to kill the kids at his nearest middle school, he probably gets caught by the police, charged, tried, jailed and ultimately processed back into society - do you think they would ever let him legally purchase a 50-calibre sniper rifle?
No, of course not.
