Is it more than words?

Or,

There going to throw the first stone?
Any agreements on this.

Makes me wonder,

If there playing Cat & Mouse,

Remember when Iran made threats,
Look who it is now.

And,

As if America isn't backing them.

I'm waiting for Australia to follow.

And followed by World War 3.

This is just more propaganda from Israel They know they will get their ass kicked with out the backing of America.

A few months ago i thought this was a done deal but I'm not sure any more.

As for Australia,I would hope that Kevin would wake up and say no if the yanks ask for help.



NO MORE WARS PLEASE

Hence why they "asked"...


A report, published in September in Britain's Guardian newspaper, claimed that Isreali Prime Minister Ehud Olmert requested a green light to attack Iran in May but was refused by George W. Bush.


My guess is it will happen once the US has Pakistan, and therefore, Iran surrounded.

It's like two kids pushing each other in the play ground .... sooner or latter one of them will snap and throw a punch ... the hatred runs to deep and to far back through history ... let them have it out I'm sick of hearing about it.

actually i came across a news report from the 26th of Nov stating that Israel is not going to be 'stopped' per se by America if it wants to strike Iran.

I started a thread a while back about that... definitely makes for an interesting read especially this part ....


"I don't remember that anyone in the administration, including in the last couple of days, advised me or any other of my official representatives not to take any action that we will deem necessary for the fundamental security of the state of Israel, and that includes Iran," Olmert said.


Here's the link to the thread with the news story

So where is the news here?
I have been hearing this BS for a while now.
While I seriously don't advocate war, Israel needs to either go get some or shut the hell up.

If they got any more prepared they'd explode!

Yhea much the same - the rhetoric is pretty tit for tat all the time. I kinda think it's not really worth following it, if/when (more likely when IMO) it kicks off it's gonna be independent of all this big talk, a sneaky knee to the groin by one side.

I would like to see a televised mud wrestle between Olmert and Ahmadinejad - winner is the big man, looser looses... end of!

This is same old tired headline replayed every few months so that in case Israel ever does attack Iran, somebody can say they saw it coming.

Plus see the original post, i dont trust sources that cant even spell the name of a country correctly. I mean "Isreal"? Come on.

I'd agree that these articles are getting tiresome. Just like the Martial Law nonsense.

The predictions were wrong and people just can't let it go.

True, that.

But, unlike martial law (a few thousand troops against 300 million? Yeah, good luck with that), this looks like it's actually going to happen at some point.

My hypothesis and feeling is that if Israel had what it considered reliable intelligence that Iran was close to developing a nuclear weapon, or the capacity to develop one in very short order, it might be willing to risk going it alone if it meant preventing even the faintest possibility of a nuclear strike or nuclear weapons falling into the hands of other groups it considers hostile to itself and its interests. In other words, I think Israel if given only these two options, would rather risk 1) a protracted, difficult, conventional war of attrition with its neighbors, rather than risk 2) the possibility of suffering a nuclear attack.

Israel may also reason (possibly correctly) that even if it risks a war with its neighbors, the U.S. would intervene on its behalf (eventually) if things started to look bad enough.

The CTer side of me also wants to hypothesize that the above is merely the justification that will be given after the fact, whereas in reality perhaps this has already been agreed between both Israel and the West.

I do feel that if there was no hard evidence of nuclear weapons, Israel would not risk the political fallout inherent in an attack with an Iraq-like WMD claim that failed to be proved later.

This is all purely conjecture and hypothesis, though. I don't firmly believe anything one way or another, as usual. I don't know.

Without U.S. backup? Is that supposed to be funny?

The U.S. army is basically part of Israel's army. The CIA and highly renowned specialists in the U.S. will definitely be helping out the Israelis to take out Iran. "without backup" is simply bull# trying to convince Americans that the U.S. will not fight Iran.


Israel will rape Iran, seriously.
