    GOP senators: US, not Israel, should attack Iran ‘if necessary’ | Raw Story

    This is one of the reasons I said Lindsey Graham represents everything wrong with the Republican Party. He wants to get us mired in another war we can't afford with little to no evidence that Iran is developing nuclear energy for anything less than peaceful purposes.

    Israel should take care of Iran. They have the capabilities, they should just stop lying because it is the biggest open secret in the Middle East.

    I would say no one should take care of Iran. They're allowed to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under the Non-Proliferation Treaty. If Israel does want to attack Iran, however, then it needs to be made clear to them that the U.S. will not support them in that endeavor in any way shape or form. We need to remain neutral.

    You know if that happens, we'll be called anti-semites. Besides, I don't trust the leader of Iran for two seconds to believe that nuclear energy is being developed for peaceful purposes.

    Neutrality isn't anti-Israel, so why should that be an anti-semitic position? I don't trust him either, I'm taking the word of the IAEA.

    Because you obviously want to see Jews pushed into the sea, duh. Seriously though, Israel and Jewish-Americans will see it as Obama being an anti-semite. Whether they're right is an entire different matter. (Spoiler: They're not.)

    I wouldn't take the word of the IAEA on the leader of Iran. He's as loony as Kim Jong Ill.

    I take their word that they have no evidence that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon.

    The U.S. will protect Israel, and it will radiate any country thinks to try to nuke it. Having said that, I have no doubt that if the administration thought it was in this country's best interest, that Israel would be "allowed" to strike Iran.

    Israel is more than capable of doing its own radiating, but no one would be foolish enough to nuke Israel. Especially Iran, considering they have no nukes.
