Default U.S. says exercise by Israel seemed directed at Iran

Ruh-roh

Israel carried out a major military exercise earlier this month that American officials say appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Several American officials said the Israeli exercise appeared to be an effort to develop the military's capacity to carry out long-range strikes and to demonstrate the seriousness with which Israel views Iran's nuclear program.

For better or worse, my bet is I wake up and switch on the news some morning between after the election & before January 20 to hear Israel and/or the U.S. have struck Iran.

If Isreal is that stupid, they deserve what they get.

I think they did it before in Iraq & it was pretty successive. So maybe they R about 2 repeat it.

I don't quite agree with your timetable.... but I think you are right in your assessment.

Hey...

Not meaning to cross threads, (but I am doing it), think back to our thread about Bush and war crimes...

Now think about what is being said here...

Now think about how often Israel is at odds with Europe in the UN and other places... and think about our support of Israel.

Think about what Iran has been doing...

Tie all that together...


Do you think the REAL undercurrent to ALL of this is actually a push against the US and Israel and their involvement with Iran? Don't forget both Russia and Frances ties to Iran.

Hmmmmm.....

That's a stretch. Personally I think the US should cut ties with Isreal yesterday. That country is bad juju in a big way.

Absolutely not.

Call it Holocaust guilt. Call it religious connection. Call it what you want.

We would be foolish to do anything but strengthen out ties to Israel.

Cut our ties completely.... and a major war erupts in the Mid East with Israel and one of her neihbors.

I fear tthat war, without the help of the west... cannot fail to go nuclear.

Preacher you're living in a fantasy world if you think Isreal would listen to us for one minute before firing off their nukes.

Really?

You mean like how they listened to us and didn't get involved in the first Iraq war... even though Saddam was firing scuds at them?

Trust me.

They listen to us when shipments of weapons, etc. get "held up for technical reasons."

Right now, we give them 2.5 billion a year... of that 2.3 is in military.

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/...o_Israel1.html


The entire Israeli military budget is 11.9 billion

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20...nt_6519694.htm

That is almost a 1/4 of their entire budget...

and you think they won't listen to us?
