    I say let them. They would probably get it done a lot quicker than we would.

    The United States and its allies must act to stop Iran's nuclear programs -- by force if necessary -- because conventional diplomacy will not work, three senior Israeli lawmakers from across the political spectrum warned yesterday.
    As a last resort, they said, Israel itself would act unilaterally to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear arms.
    Iran will not be deterred "by anything short of a threat of force," said Arieh Eldad, a member of Israel's right-wing National Union Party, part of a delegation of Knesset members visiting Washington this week.
    "They won't be stopped unless they are convinced their programs will be destroyed if they continue," he said.
    Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said the best hope was for the United States and other major powers to make it clear to Iranian leaders now there was "no chance they will ever see the fruits of a nuclear program."
    "Threats of sanctions and isolation alone will not do it," said Mr. Steinitz.
    Yosef Lapid, head of the centrist opposition Shinui Party in the Knesset, added that Israel "will not live under the threat of an Iranian nuclear bomb."
    "We feel we are obliged to warn our friends that Israel should not be pushed into a situation where we see no other solution but to act unilaterally" against Iran, he said.
    Mr. Steinitz, a member of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's ruling Likud Party, stopped just short of a direct threat to bomb suspect Iranian nuclear sites.

    Of course they wont stop unless physical force is threatened. I certainly hope they do something about it like they did with Saddam's little French made nuke factory. :firing:

    It is understandable ISrael reacting in that way.

    Things in Iraq are from pointview of Israel not doing good.
    Getting shiites to power.

    Mullah-Shiites in Iran said long years ago: "The road to Jerusalem leads over Nadschaf"...

    And from Israel Standpoint, Shiites reached now Nadschaf.

    Whether it is us or the Israeli's matters little to me, just so long as someone does the job.

    Yes, but in potential scenario, will Iraq gave permission for Israeli Jets cross their Air-Space?




    Iraq's interim foreign minister said in remarks published today that any attack on neighboring Iran or Syria could destabilize Iraq
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/library/news/iran/2005/iran-050223-rferl01.htm


    And i Remeber too, that an Iraqi and Iranian minister come together 4 or 5 months ago and they both said: From one land there will be never attacks to the other.


    Perhaps Israel is going to use their dolphin-class submarines capable of firing nuclear missiles, which Germans gave them for free.
