If Israel strikes Iran and Iran retaliates, should we intervene?

    I believe that Israel is underestimating the Iranian army and the backlash of the surrounding regions. If we send troops, we will suffer severe casualties. Enough American troops have died overseas in the middle east. If Israel strikes first, there will not be enough international support for us to go to war with that region.

    Although highly unlikely, I was recently in egypt and I believe that the muslim brotherhood's control of the new democracy may push for a Jihad. I would not be surprised if there was a world wide Jihad against Israel. The arab world is frustrated by the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. There is a cauldron of anger brewing.

    Ultimately, what I see happening if Israel strikes Iran unprovoked is that Americans won't support more US troops dying. Our own economy and national issues is of bigger importance than "the holy land " .

    I believe there is a 90 percent chance of Israel striking. Israel wants to strike before the American elections because then there will be pressure on the candidates' financial backers for the nominees to support Israel.

    I believe that this is what the bible speaks of when it says, " all of the nations will come against Israel " . I believe this is pivotal moment in world history. Personally, I don't think Israel is going to survive the onslaught of the arab hoardes. In a true Jihad, we will see North Sudan and Egypt heading towards southern israel, and I believe there will be a catastrophic event that will shift attention away from Israel and towards America like a big earthquake. I believe Iran's army is strong enough to March across Iraq and Afghanistan and pick up soldiers along the way.

    If there is a hurricane katrina type event in America, there will be great pressure on the American president to not focus on war. Personally, I believe this will be a giant san francisco / los angeles quake of epic proportions. I believe this quake will draw all of the atttention away from the war, and leave Israel on an Island.

    I believe Israel won't be a country in 2013.

    I said for years if Iran wants nukes so badly we should get together and just give them to some.

    And quickly.

    Mach 6 sounds about right.

    Compliments on your well presented summary. But it appears you've ignored the very critical element of Israel's nuclear arsenal. I don't know how big it is but I've heard they have three hundred weapons, which I assume is sufficient to annihilate the armies of the entire Arab world.

    The problem is using those weapons would incite fearful anger of the rest of the world against Israel as well as contaminating the oil fields of the Middle East. I believe these these factors to be a form of circumstantial blackmail Israel holds over the head of the U.S., thereby forcing us to provide military support in a non-nuclear engagement.

    What are your thoughts?

    Not if it is only Isreal vs Iran.Isreal will kick their asses into next week.

    If a bunch of other countries join in then yes, we should.
