I, for once, agree with a leftist I heard tonight who said that our POTUS probably made a deal with Russia for them to go with us full force on sanctions for ixnaying the Eastern European missile shields. I'm optomistic, at least, that this is the case.

If Russia isn't on board for some strict sanctions, then you might as have Israel declare war right now, which would put us right in there with them.

Either way, this has to be the most tense the world has been in quite some time.

When Joe Biden spoke of how our POTUS would be "tested" and that we might not like his response, it was either prophetic or old Joe knew exactly what to expect. We have an administration that has not one...NO ONE...experienced at dealing with world affairs. You've got Barry, Biden, Hillary, and Rham Emanuel trying to rule the world through negotiations. They will get raped (and us along with them) for the next three years.
To answer the question, I think before summer comes, Israel will make a move to take out Iran's nuclear facilities. The old Elton John song "Bennie and the Jets" comes to mind...

I agree - although I think this will be called "Goldstein and the Jets"

Yes it will happen.

My prediction.

Russia will take over the norther half, and nato will take over the southern half of Iran. Yes I know this sound totally off the wall, but if you look at everything you will see this as the only outcome the big boys in the playing field would agree on. As far as Israel, their screwed.

It will amount to another political nightmare long drawn out war, just like the one we are in now.



All men should know Honor first, above all else!

Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.

Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.

Yes Iran will be attacked. It is one of the five countries left without a central bank, but that's just a coincidence.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

I honestly do not have a clue. My gut tells me they will get fucked up by Israel and it will kick off a major conflict possibly world wide.

The one thing you never want to fuck with is a cornered beast. Israel is such a beast, getting hit on all sides. Millitarily on one side, and by a US politician on the other (his name needs no mention). Israelis are millitary born, millitary bred, and millitary taught, by a millitary state. They know no other life, than one of heightened awareness of death without the US persons luxury of feeling "immortal".


It's good to see the side of the Israelis point of view, but the media wont ever show that.



Here is a good view of how some of the Israeli youth (16-45) see themselves and their situation.

http://www.guy-poreh.com/?tag=middle-east






as the fires and smoke fill the gaza sky, the world turns it’s eyes to us. to the israeli warriors.
the pages of human history are full of eyes turned to warriors and leaders, praising them, blaming them for the battles waged and casualties inflicted.
greek history tells of the spartan king, leonidas, who took 300 of his men to defend his city against the evil army of xerxes, the persian “godking”. though scorned both at home and in his peers’ eyes, he led a valant battle that resounded through history and inspired free nations to stand against oppressors.
we cheered leonidas while watching the movie 300. we were inspired by him.
he is legend.
in israel, through times immortal we build our warrior legends time and again. and it seems we are forced to do so yet again.
we did not want this war in gaza. we left gaza to it’s population so they could build there own state, so they too could live as free men. but we were deceived. instead of a peaceful neighbour we found an enemy at our doorstep.
an enemy fueled by hatred, religious fanaticism and oil money spilling in from syria, iran and their allies. an enemy as dark and evil as xerxes ever was, using poverty and religion to create suicide bombers. an enemy that never hesitates even during times of truce to bombard our cities with deadly missiles. an enemy that takes innocent children as human shields against the backlash of our warriors. an enemy that wants nothing less than to watch us burn.
and so regrettably our men don battle fatigues and set forward into the fray. we battle on the same land we’ve battled on for over 3000 years. we step on the same stones that king david stepped, we watch our enemies from the same mountain tops the maccabis watched the romans, we pray to the same god king solomon prayed, we rest on the same dirt that jesus rested on.
just as in biblical times, the israeli women send their sons, fathers, husbands, brothers, lovers, into the battle. praying to the same god they’ve prayed to for over 6000 years, with the same plea: “please, bring him back to me”.
but we are no longer just 300.
our enemies trembled at the sight of samson. they fell to the few score of king david’s men. so now let them tremble at tens of thousands of israeli warriors armed to the teeth with the best weaponry in the world and eyes blazing for revenge against the terrorists.
let them tremble as every missile they launch brings down a rain of fire on terrorist headquarters.
you turn your eyes and tell us to stop this madness.
they break the peace. they shell fire endlessly on our cities. they kill mercilessly innocent women and children. they bring war to our very doorstep.

You call what we do madness? This is not madness.



THIS. IS. ISRAEL[/quote]

Really? http://www.cbi.ir/default_en.aspx

I know Monaco and Andorra don't have central banks but what are the other 3 or 4?

Hasn't there been one for the past >2000 years?

Those guys will keep fighting each other no matter what. One thing I remember about the movie Bruno was when he got an Israeli leader and some Muslim leader in the same room and asked them a few questions. It was insane how much they had in common. I think they just fight because that's what's expected of them. Neither are really looking for resolve or peace. It's funny in a way. Unfortunately, people on both sides are dying and suffering because of it.
