    Do you think Israel is warning the world they feel a need to attack or are they goading others into attacking Iran first?

    Couldn't possibly be that Iran has said it would target Israel, huh? :confused:

    Of course it is---I'm just asking if this article gives you the impression that Isreal is justifying an attack by them OR if they are encouraging others to defend them?

    oh I am sure they do, but this is a propaganda piece on AP.

    I like to point that out.

    Iran needs to do nothing to discredit themselves any more, their President
    already threatened Israel, and Iran claimed those "wonder torpedo" exercises.

    Iran develops its own 2 stage missiles. I doubt they buy NK ones.


    But this article is just a propaganda note from Israel. Not news but a manipulated mishmash created to instill fear in the European reader.

    Dont get me wrong I am for military action against Iran if they continue their nuke development, but I am worried that the press is used more and more by democratic governments for propaganda.
    This is a development threatening the democracy in western countries per se imo.

    Attack Iran if necessary out of logic and conviction, not out of fear.

    If the Israeli intel chief said what he said, then the latter IMO...

    I agree with Dr Grump...the latter, for sure. But I doubt he'd say that includes "tactical nukes" or overly aggressive action.

    Huge leap from "ummm...dudes, we have a problem here" to "blow up Iran". There's a middle ground to be found, IMO.
