    I am sure everyone has heard the latest news on the iran nuke program. Israel wants to attack but usa is waiting to get russia and china to back 'hard sanctions'. Israel has stated they are willing to go against usa's strong warnings that we would not support them if they strike without our approval. do you think obama & crew would actually back this or that congress would force it so that we had to back them militarily? what do you think we should do?

    personally I think israel needs to attack and/or that we need to help due to the threat iran is, but they control so much our interests that we wouldn't cross iran at this point. iran could bring iraq into total chaos quickly due to their controlling of currently now usa-paid off sunni and other insurgent groups. We would also anger saudi arabia since they just signed a truce deal with iran-backed terrorist groups with the help of the usa. iran could also close of the strait and have oil prices triple overnight.

    Israel doesn't need our help or support. I think they're perfectly capable of kicking ass.

    P.S. - Just sayin'.

    1. What would Israel attack? Attack the centrifuges spewing radioactive shit all over the place. Picture hundreds of mini-Chernobles.

    I prefer a decap strike...still want those nukes bud? The problem is that it would enrage the SNs. This is where the CIA needs to get creative. I have a lot of really neat ideas....I'm sure they do too.

    Were Iran to try anything, it would probably be a missile launch. Which would get shot down over Jordan.

    Then they would respond in kind, and that would be the end of Quom, Therahn and Isfahan as cities.

    I am sure anything the Israelis have dwarfs anything the Iranians have.

    I would feel a bit more secure if I knew we had some good leadership in Washington. Nothing in the White House or in Congress is capable of leading the US through WWIII. It's on the horizon.

    You'd think these world governments would realize by now that sanctions don't accomplish shit. If Israel attacks Iran more power to them. We don't need to do anything. Just stand by and watch. It would be nice to see somebody else take the lead on this stuff for once.

    how should the usa respond if israel attacks iran pre-emptively

    Perhaps sending some flowers and a box of chocolates?

    Dear Israel,

    Thank you for your thoughtful gift!

    love,

    We should at the very least, replace all Israeli weapons used for the strike at no cost to Israel...
