  1. How many think Israel will take some sort of action against Iran this spring. I've heard this a few times on the news,personally i think Israel will do what they have to do and the rest of the world can live with it.

    They will do what they think they have to. I have no problems with that. What I do have a problem with is our Secretary of Defense getting on TV and making the statement that they will be doing something in the near future. With friends like that, they don't need enemies,

    Israel in the past hasn't held back when it comes to their own demise. They also don't make threats when they go about doing anything, just do it.

    What I wonder about is how everything will affect our own election this fall.

    They have a right to arm themselves just like we do.

    On Fox just a few minutes ago was a poll..50% of those asked here, have no issues at all with Israel attacking iran.

    As poor as this admin is, I do not believe they would say Israel was going to attack if it was true. Feel them out, or push to get rid of nukes, maybe. But announce an attack, nah.

    Obozo hitting irans central bank today will serve to hurt them a bit more.

    They have the right to do whatever they need to do to protect themselves. I just hope we stay the hell out of it, unless of corse we are threatened.

    I see Israel taking control with a first strike when they feel they can't wait any longer. Remember, they have no recourse when Iran has sworn to wipe them from the face of the earth and their closest supposed ally, the USA, is being run by a muslim who has thrown the Jewish people under the bus! Remember what I always say: If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck it's probably a duck! Barack Hussain Obama, now who does it sound like he'll support?

    Just striking Israel, is an attack against us. Can you visualize the entire mid-east under the control of iran? That's what will occur if Israel is destroyed.

    The trouble is, just on the possibility of a new mid-east conflict, the evening news broadcast has predicted the price of gasoline will begin to rise and peak over the summer at close to, if not 5 dollars/gallon. Personally, I can't see Obozo letting this happen. If gas gets even close to the 5 dollar figure, I don't see him having a chance at re-election. It might be worth it.

    Gas prices, compared to the price we would pay if the entire mid-east decides on a jihad, wouldn't matter.

    When, if, it happens, I can't grasp the idea that the price of a gallon of gas as being the deciding factor in defending Israel.

    I'm expecting that The Jews will defend themselves .... THe "rag heads" will fight back and "Our Leader" will declare a state of emergency, pospone the up coming election and posture himself as President ( King ) For Life.

    Then it may get ugly !

    Just finished reading some analyses on Israel's military capabilities. Their general concensus was it was capable of little outside of regional efforts. FWIW, I think these "analyses" are BS ! Past performance indicates the Israeli's capable of excellent subterfuge - they ran light arms/ammuniton manufacturing plants under the noses of the Brits and the UN in the Forties - and surprised the hell out of USAF analysts by adding "conformal fuel tanks" to seriously increase the range of F-15s we sold them in the 70's !

    I certainly wouldn't "bet against" the Israeli's having a number of aces "up their sleeve" in any confrontation with Iran - or other hostile Arab states. A "nap of the earth" capable UAV need only fly one way to deliver its payload ! And POIs are measured in feet, not meters, these days ! >MW

    Real question is will it be an open attack or an "accident" with the help of the mossad?
