    Have we obligated ourselves to join them? Do you think we should stand with Israel no matter what or leave them to fight their own battle?

    If it is an offensive strike.. I do not see us necessarily joining in with our military forces...

    If there is a strike against Israel, I would fully expect our participation in helping them defend their homeland

    If we had a president who knew what the fuck he was doing, it wouldn't come to a war.

    Btw, I've watched a lot of Scooby Doo, and I don't remember Velma looking like that!

    I have no idea how this will go, but at the beginning of WW2 our allies had declared war long before we did. I am sure there are other instances of our allies declaring war while our country hasn't.

    I've been reading more and more about Israel lately. Many people feel their PM is attempting to make the US look undependable in an attempt to convince his people the best course is to strike first.

    As to Velma- perhaps you didn't look close enough :D

    If (when?) Israel strikes Iran, whether we like or not, we'll be drawn in. You think we got problems at our embassies now? Wait 'till Israel's taking out targets in Iran. Shit's going to light up real quick. My bet is that it will quickly become a major, regional conflagration.

    But then again, Syria is busy annihilating its own population. So who knows?


    :eusa_shhh: maybe if they bomb very quietly, no one will notice :eusa_shhh:

    I agree. They need us, and I worry that they know they have us and will act on that assurance.
