    Nuclear weapons will get us involved regardless.

    Even assuming the IDF handles the problem all by themselves, the Ayatollahs will blame the Great Satan anyway. So regardless of whether the U.S. helps or not, we're in for the penny, in for the pound.

    I hope it can wait till after Romney is elected.

    The country doesn't need any wartime paralysis affecting the November election.

    You mean the Iran that could not beat Iraq in close to 8 years of war? IRAQ!...that we rolled over, twice in a few day each time and Israel bombed the crap out of their reactor.

    The Iran that cant keep computer viruses out of its most sensitive equipment...not can they keep their best scientists alive, in their own country...?

    The Iran that has to put glass bottoms on it's ships...so it can see the rest of its Navy?

    I think the Boy Scouts could probably wip Iran.

    It's also the Iran that hacked and brought down our best drone. HH

    They have nearly a million people that could go to war. They have missiles, an airforce, a navy...

    Israel is small and pinned against the sea surrounded by nations that hate them. It wouldnt be difficult to do a great deal of damage to them.

    Im not saying they wouldn't win, just that it wont be as easy a task as some make it. Particularly if Iran goes all out.

    There is no "all out" There is a little problem of all those other countries in between them. All the Iranians in the world...they have no ability to go anywhere to fight.

    There is at most an air war, an insurgency, terrorism.

    In the game of "air war" Israel is the dominate force. Israels Navy is also far more advanced.

    Isreal also has a large nuclear stockpile and the means to deliver it.

    Rabbi, you need to keep better score. The populace in Iraq/Afghanistan has not relented 100%. The war was won strategically but not logistically. Forget the Nuremburg & battleship Iowa types of victories. Those days are gone. It's an unwinnable war of attrition that has become an extended fiscal Verdun for us. The ONLY way to have a complete & utter victory is to simply nuke Tehran. Make it glow. Even if an airstrike takes out their nuke factory they will rebuild like ants. The U.S. has forgotten how to make total war due to the Libs. Those we don't kill now we will have to kill later as well as their offspring.

    I dont disagree with you.

    However, the "will" and the "ability" are two different things.

    It is my unfortunate lot to be able to envision a scenario all too probable.

    Every Islamic radical in the world will be looking for somebody to take it out on. I hate to say it but Israel is a harder target than "the Great Satan" . Israel can go out of the way to keep us out of it. WE can go out of the way to stay out of it, but the ISLAMIC RADCALS will put us in it.

    There's no chance the other countries, who all hate Israel...would allow Iran to send troops through?

    You're right though...they're primarily a defensive force.

    They can launch missles from their country though, cant they? Im not sure what they're capable of, but I know they where testing an icbm a while back.

    I kind of doubt Israel would use nukes accept maybe in the most dire of circumstances. The US would intervene before that.

    If Iran is not an issue then why was Israel asking if the US would back them up if they attacked?

    I dont doubt that Israel will win...but if Iran chooses to do their best against them...whether covertly or not...a good deal of damage could potentially be done.

    While I dont fault you belief, you are really not up to speed on a lot of basic on this issue. For example, have you looked at the countries between Iran and Israel? The actual distance? Are you up to speed on the political issues between those countries and Israel and Iran? (no) Even Saudi SAUDI!!! is willing to talk to Israel on matter of Iran. Here is a hint, Except Syria....they all hate Iran more than Israel.
