Israel Prodding U.S. To Attack Iran

Quick! Buy oil futures contracts!

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/...n4206201.shtml

Quote:
(CBS) Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen leaves Tuesday night on an overseas trip that will take him to Israel, reports CBS News national security correspondent David Martin. The trip has been scheduled for some time but U.S. officials say it comes just as the Israelis are mounting a full court press to get the Bush administration to strike Iran's nuclear complex.

CBS consultant Michael Oren says Israel doesn't want to wait for a new administration.

"The Israelis have been assured by the Bush administration that the Bush administration will not allow Iran to nuclearize," Oren said. "Israelis are uncertain about what would be the policies of the next administration vis-ŗ-vis Iran."

Israel's message is simple: If you don't, we will. Israel held a dress rehearsal for a strike earlier this month, but military analysts say Israel can not do it alone.

"Keep in mind that Israel does not have strategic bombers," Oren said. "The Israeli Air Force is not the American Air Force. Israel can not eliminate Iran's nuclear program."

The U.S. with its stealth bombers and cruise missiles has a much greater capability. Vice President Cheney is said to favor a strike, but both Mullen and Defense Secretary Gates are opposed to an attack which could touch off a third war in the region.

U.S. intelligence estimates Iran won't be able to build a weapon until sometime early in the next decade. But Israel is operating on a much shorter timetable.

"The Iranians, according to Israeli security sources, will have an operable nuclear weapon by 2009. That's not a very long time," Oren said.

For now, the Bush administration is counting on new economic sanctions which took effect Tuesday to persuade Iran to give up its nuclear program. But nobody's counting on it.

Tell Israel to do it their damn self, we've done enough on their behalf.

If they're so sure of Iran's capabilities, then let them give one of those UN presentations hahahaha.

There is no way for Israel to bomb Iran without going to full scale war. An attack on Iran by Israel will automatically put Syria and Lebanon at war with Israel too. If Israel would rather go to war then work diplomatically then let them pay the price with their own blood. Our only position in this should be keeping Russian and China out of it.

The only response will be more rocket attacks from Hezbollah. Mainly because that is all Iran is capable of. Iran's air force is a joke. Syria bought a fancy air defense system from Russia that is also a joke and by saying Lebanon, well you really mean Hezbollah since the other half of Lebanon wants no part of another war for any reason. We all know how the Hezbollah war went, it was essentially a bunch of guys hiding in bunkers and getting their asses bombed off then sneaking out to fire a few rockets into Israel hoping to kill a few civilians while trying to get the media to take pictures of all the "civilians" the evil jews killed. Of course once the Israelis got tired of it and their political support went away the Arabs proclaimed victory. I've never seen someone win a war in modern times without air power so I guess Allah was flying the only plane.

A relative was friends with a Israeli general that told him that they could make it to Egypt in a week; a long time before they attacked.

No shit. Let them test bed our planes against the S-300. If they make it we sell more around the world. If they don't then new design contracts go out. Win-win.

They have been doing that since B.C. times, lol, I think they will be fine. I hope they go over there and take care of it, God knows we can't afford another war. It would be nice for a change that we could just sit back and provide crowd control.

Israel doesn't need 'strategic bombers' that they don't have.. their pilots are the/part of the best in the world.

I hope the region doesn't get any deeper, but fear it's inevitable. At this point, i only hope it's after July 25 or so, when my ex moves back from studying abroad.

The Iranian Shahab-3 is a single-stage, liquid-fueled, road-mobile, medium-range ballistic missile with a range of approximately 800 miles (1,280 km). A MRBM variant, sometimes called Shahab-4, has a range of more than 1,200 miles (1,930 km).


http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/man/.../shahab-3.html

I'm assuming they can aim and shoot better than Saddam and Hezbollah.

FAS estimates they have 150+ of these.

Doesn't sound like much, but if they are desparate. Tel Aviv is a target rich environment.


Of course, a nuke in Tehran would be even more messy.

The only thing they respect is when you beat them into submission. The Jews treat them like animals and it works out pretty good, we should do the same.

Those look really good on paper, in reality they are great 1950s technology.

Who are these savages that you are referring to? The Iranians? What makes them savages? Where has Iran broken from the diplomatic path? It seems to me they are playing by the rules of the game. Of course, Iíll agree they are bending and manipulating the law in their favor. Nevertheless, who has proved Iran has broken the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons? According to what has gone done thus far Iran has been shown to be in non-compliance with the IAEA safeguards agreement, not the NPT itself. The rule of law is being applied and we should continue to follow it. All this bomb and war talk is what is outside the rule of law.

Didn't they jump up and down in celebration when the CIA reported they had stopped their weapons program around the year 2000?

The fact that they had a weapons program violates the NPT.

Learn what the hell you are talking about.

Muslims/Arabs = Savages. Their beliefs and more importantly, their hatred of anyone not them plus pack mentality make them savages. They act like animals, have no value of human life and want everything their way.

Play nice.
O.K. I'll learn a little more.

http://www.un.org/events/npt2005/npttreaty.html

http://www.dni.gov/press_releases/20071203_release.pdf

We assess with high confidence that until fall 2003, Iranian military entities were working under government direction to develop nuclear weapons.

For the purposes of this Estimate, by ďnuclear weapons programĒ we mean Iranís nuclear weapon design and weaponization work and covert uranium conversion-related and uranium enrichment-related work; we do not mean Iranís declared civil work related to uranium conversion and enrichment.


http://www.iaea.org/Publications/Rep...safeguards.pdf

Progress made during 2004 enabled the Agency to conclude that all declared nuclear material in Iran had been accounted for, and that, therefore, such material was not diverted to prohibited activities. However, the Agency is not yet in a position to conclude that there are no undeclared nuclear material or activities in Iran.

http://www.adl.org/main_Anti_Semitis...threat_faq.htm

The U.N. Security Council unanimously voted to impose sanctions on Iran in December 2006. The sanctions, which were passed as Resolution 1737, ban the supply of nuclear-related materials and technology to Iran and freeze the assets of individuals and companies with links to Iran's nuclear program. The Security Council proceeded to tighten its sanctions on Iran in March 2007 due to Iran's failure to respond to Resolution 1737. The resulting Resolution 1747, extended the U.N.'s initial set of sanctions, calling for a ban on the import/export of Iranian weapons and extending the freeze on assets that was already in place.

I was wrong in my earlier statement. Iran is in violation of NPT. (though the legal terminology is probably non-compliance)

I wouldn't call them savages. I want to know why you call them savage. Maybe that's not what you really meant. I'm pretty weary of anyone who demotes a group of people from basic human respect to "savage".

Their leader and spokesman called for the elimination of Israel. He claims the Holocaust never happened. Google that little bastard. He purposely puts himself in situations to be questioned, only to demonstrate his hatred for us, Israel and anyone else that's not like him. He also goes out of his way to NOT say things to let you draw negative conclusions. Finally, he'll throw his hands up in a, "Who, me?" attitude.

Exactly, if the Iranians wanted to relax this situation they could easily do that. The regime in charge wants to play games though. I think the Jews are going to oblige.

Don't forget evidence of their testing of high explosives used to detonate nuclear weapons, their work on a missle re-entry vehicle, their work on a satellite program that can also carry ICBMs, their work on ballistic missiles that can accept nuclear warheads...

Why not? Say they do it all. Withdrawn from the treaty and have at their disposal a few nuclear tipped long range missiles. Why is this intolerable?

Because of their obvious hostile intentions that they parade constantly.

The world's nuclear superpowers are all held at bay by the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction. The nukes are more of a "don't annihilate us lest ye be annihilated" mantlepiece than an actual combat weapon for countries like the US, Russia and China. It can be an uneasy peace, but no one is dying.


It would seem that MAD is a concept lost on a culture that has no problem "martyring" themselves while "killing the infidel in the name of Allah" on a daily basis.

** WORK WARNING ON MOST OF THESE, YOU IDIOTS **

"savages" is the correct term, "savage" is what savages do.

Savage = sending 14 year old boys on suicide missions



Savage = sending young women in as suicide bombers



Savage - How about amputation of hands as punishment:

Savage - How about a mob savagely killing a teenage girl on the side of a road, smashing in her head with a concrete block? Her crime? She fell in love with a boy not of her own religion.

And so on. These people are quite literally stuck in the stone age.

There are three major monotheistic religions in the world:
Christianity, Judaism and Islam. In the 16th century, Judaism and Christianity reconciled with the modern world. The rabbis, priests and scholars found a way to settle up and pave the way forward. Religion remained at the center of life, church and state became separate. Rule of law, idea of economic liberty, individual rights, human rights - all these are defining points of modern Western civilization. These concepts started with the Greeks but didn't take off until the 15th and 16th century when Judaism and Christianity found a way to reconcile with the modern world. When that happened, it unleashed the scientific revolution and the greatest outpouring of art, literature and music the world has ever known.

Islam, which developed in the 7th century, counts millions of Moslem's around the world who are normal people. However, there is a radical streak within Islam. When the radicals are in charge, Islam attacks Western civilization. Islam first attacked Western civilization in the 7th century, and later in the 16th and 17th centuries. By 1683, the Moslem's (Turks from the Ottoman Empire) were literally at the gates of Vienna. It was in Vienna that the climatic battle between Islam and Western civilization took place. The West won and went forward. Islam lost and went backward. Interestingly, the date of that battle was September 11, a coincidence? Undoubtedly not! Since then, Islam has not found a way to reconcile with the modern world.

One word, instability.

Look at the two Iranian apologists on this board. They openly admit that the regime currently in charge in Iran is the worst thing to happen to the country in a long time. Yet they will continue to support it because of patriotism (meanwhile one of the dumbfucks even attacks blind patriotism in his own signature). The balance of power could change in that country at any second. They also signed a treaty, as far as I am concerned they can stick to it or get their asses bombed. As I said earlier, the Iranians in charge insist on playing games, most likely to draw the Jews into a conflict with the entire region. They are going to get their wish but are going to be suprised when the rest of the Middle East doesn't back them up.

Israel cant defeat Iran absolutely, they can bomb the hell out of them and really fuck them up, but in the end Iran is still going to be there, and in the long run Israel will still be hit with rocket attacks and suicide bombers and one of them might be able to carry a nuclear bomb into the country.

is that really worth $15/gal gas?

15$/gal gas is worth not being blow up by a nuke by Iran, ANY and this was disclosed by Iran, ANY attack from israel will be essentially from the US. If Israel goes to war with Iran, we will go to war with Iran and if we dont make the first move, Iran sure as hell will.

Iran doesn't keep all of its money and investments in the U.S. They haven't forgotten Carter freezing their assets during the hostage affair.

portions of Irans investments get frozen all the time in the US, same things happens to many other countries all the time, but they still invest because there is no better place to do it.

Obviously not a good enough one, Iran has been asking for the last year for each country to pay with NON-US $ for their oil. Iran has been playing war games with us over the past year(ok they have been doing it forever but have increased). If you dont think Iran has the capabilities of getting to us you have been seriously mis-lead, hell they have been staking out the gulf since march of '07 with heavily armed subs. What investments does Iran have over here that they could not shut down quickly and move to China in a matter of a day or two? Iran would love to be the start of WW3 and thats about what it would come to cause then you would have China backing them up, along with Russia. Iran has us damn near by the balls right now and the only thing holding them back is the fact they know we can wipe them completly out no matter how bad they hurt us.


"US law has long kept American oil companies from operating in Iran. But foreign companies - including Chinese and Russian oil giants - happily do business with the Iranian government. Iran relies on these companies for most of its export revenues, revenues that help finance terrorist acts and organizations around the world. Moreover, Iran is using its oil revenues to develop nuclear material and technology in direct violation of three unanimous United Nations Security Council resolutions"
