And so it begins... Brits expecting Israel to strike Iran by Christmas

And So be it! As long as we don't get dragged into it..but we will. This country can't afford to loose more soldiers or payout billions of dollars period. We have been paying arab nations for years to not mess with Isreal, so if they go ahead and attack Iran, let them have at it. This country is faced with major unemployment and economic problems, we don't need Isreals problems either.

We'll be in it either directly or indirectly. Too much oil goes right past Iran for us not to get involved.

Israel needs to keep in mind that with this administration, we don't have their back.

Gas goes to $10/gal and heating oil triples and what this administration wants to do and what it will be forced to do are two different things. It won't necessarily be for Israel or against Iran. Rather it will be for securing transportation lanes for black gold.

We have foolishly left ourselves somewhat dependent on oil by pissing away decades that could have been spent on the only viable alternative energy source.

Not sure of who here have a religious faith. But the christian faith generally believes that the Jews are God's chosen people. That is how I was taught. The US I think has protected Israel for spriitual reasons in th epast as much as monetary interests.

If this truly happens it worries me greatly. That sociopath Ahmedinijhad (sp?) has nukes and is just dumb enough to use them. Could be very bad for everybody.

“Israel will launch military action to prevent Iran developing a nuclear weapon as soon as Christmas”

So much for the element of surprise?

Israel will attempt to strike against the nuclear sites…with logistical support from the U.S.

Sorry folks it appears as if we are already involved.

“Officials believe President Barack Obama would have to support the Israelis or risk losing vital Jewish-American support in the next presidential election.”

100 years from now when historians visit why the experiment known as the United States of America failed I hope they quote this statement.

A sitting U.S president would get involved in a war simply to win an election….pathetic

I believe that ship sailed this week with the off microphone comments after a very questionable 3 years.

I wonder if they want to do this attack before we pull completely out of Iraq at the end of the year?

The world better decide if they really want Iran to get nukes or not because they are going to pretty soon. I'm tired of all the talk and rhetoric. If you're not going to stop them then quit saying you are.

Unless I'm wrong the locations are underground and scattered throughout the country. Short of invasion I don't see how they really stop them at this point.

It's not going to be an invasion so it will be done from the air and nobody knows for sure what cards Israel is holding.

Obama, earlier, authorized the shipment of 55 bunker buster bombs to Israel.

That would be what I would look for then.

Poor Obie. Doesn't anybody have any sympathy? He wanted to be president over a rich peacetime period, like Clinton, so he could rewrite the DNA of America. And reality keeps throwing this non-fun real-world 5hit at him. I could almost cry, I feel so bad for Dear Leader.

What a coincidence.

The timing is perfect as one can only conclude where they might
be used. Iran comes to mind.

An "Iran/Israel Conflict" could get out of control very quickly..

I think that it would last for about 1 hour and then everyone starts counting their rounds and everyone elses.

OR, we could have just let Saddam in place and HE would have rumbled with Iran. But Noooooooooo.....

Free, easy, much more inevitable, leaves Israeli issues out of it. So much WIN it's unbelievable whatever way it turns out.
