“If you take out Saddam, Saddam’s regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region…the test and the great opportunity and challenge is not merely to effect the ouster of the regime, but also transform that society and thereby begin too the process of democratizing the Arab world.”


FLASHBACK: Netanyahu Said Iraq War Would Benefit The Middle East

by Hamed Aleaziz
October 31, 2012

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday told a Paris-based magazine that a military strike on Iran would be beneficial to the region. Netanyahu’s statement was published on the eve of a meeting with French President Francois Holland, during which the two planned to discuss the Iran issue among other topics. Netanyahu cited Iran’s lack of popularity in the Middle East:

“Five minutes after, contrary to what the skeptics say, I think a feeling of relief would spread across the region…Iran is not popular in the Arab world, far from it, and some governments in the region, as well as their citizens, have understood that a nuclear armed Iran would be dangerous for them, not just for Israel.”
Sound familiar? Netanyahu’s statement echoes a point that he made in 2002, when he advocated for a strike on Iraq on the grounds that, among other things, it would benefit the region:

“If you take out Saddam, Saddam’s regime, I guarantee you that it will have enormous positive reverberations on the region…the test and the great opportunity and challenge is not merely to effect the ouster of the regime, but also transform that society and thereby begin too the process of democratizing the Arab world.”

It hardly bears repeating that Arabs in the Middle East did not react favorably to the Iraq war. The year the war began, the Los Angeles Times reported from Syria and found that negative views of America had hardened. One Syrian told the Times ”What they are doing is worse than what Saddam [Hussein] has done.” Brookings Institution polling from 2003 backed up the anecdotes. More than 60 percent of Arabs saw the Iraq war causing “less peace” in the region and more than 70 percent said it would result in “more terrorism.” Shelby Tahimi, a Middle East expert and the creator of the poll, found an “unprecedented tide of public opinion running against the United States” after the Iraq war.

Conservative warhawks ALWAYS play up the benefits of war and then disavow the horrific aftermath. People who are that eager to send other people's kids into battle should not be anywhere near a position to command them.

Reading this:
An expert on nuclear weapons explains the very basics of Iran s nuclear program - Vox

It seems like there is plenty of time to play with. I say there is a deal on the table with Iran.

The deal was there in 2003.
Articles Did Iran Offer a Grand Bargain in 2003

It was a grand bargain... It was possibly a good negotiating start, Israeli hated it as illegal settlements were on the list...

There is ways to negotiate with Iran, the RW can't take that... Iran wants things that the western world have, there is a deal there.

Obama lost the Iraq war and will lose the Afghan War. Iran is about to build the Bomb. He's a fucking disaster. The red line in the sand gave the world ISIS because the coward didnt back it up.

He was absolutely right. The first benefit was Ghaddafi turning over his nuclear development program. The next development was the Arab Spring. Had the US remained engaged in the region we could have steered things to more stability. Instead the Obama Administration flushed all thsoe gains down the toilet to appease his leftwing peacenik crowd.
This is what happens when American power is withdrawn. This is why I will never, ever, support Rand Paul or anyone like him.

What you have to understand is, that as far as Bibi and other like-minded barbarians are concerned, the current chaos in the region (which, BTW, is largely due to the activities of proxy forces/western black ops) is an "enormous[ly] positive reverberation" of the ouster of Saddam Hussein. Destabilization of the region, not "democratiz[ation]", has always been and remains the true goal of Zionist warhawks.

Yes, ISIS is an arm of the Mossad, right Heinrich?

First of all, Saddam was a Baathist. Baathists don't acknowledge borders.That is a problem. Second, Saadam had threatened repeatedly and fired scud missiles into Israel. Saddam was not well liked by any nation-state in the region.

There was no reason to go into Iraq. But, lets be honest about it.

And no, the Americans were not well liked before the Iraq war. The British, the French, the Russians, and the Germans were not well liked either. It was and is considered another oil war by those that live in that region.
