    The russians sure better hope that the Iranians never turn on them, or all those weapons they are selling Iran will be used on them.
    They do but it isn't infallible.

    A nuke does not have to hit the ground or to be delivered on a missile to be effective.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    The real issue here is why is Russia aiding Iran in the proliferation of nuclear technology? Iran sits on an ocean of oil and needs nuclear power about as much as they need sand. Russia is being incredibly short-sighted, since the Iranians are supplying the Chechens with arms and training, and the Islamic world considers Russia just as great an evil as they do us. The nukes that they provide the Iranians will end up used against them in the long term, but in the short term, they don't care because Putin is still looking at a bipolar world, in which his greatest adversary is the US.

    Guess that reset button didn't accomplish much.

    They're so close, it's quite hard. Most anti-missile systems can't handle rockets fired from short distances. Response time is too small.

    Well depends. The C-RAM is a varient of the CIWS that we use to defend our bases in Iraq and Afghanistan against rocket and mortar attacks. Your not getting much shorter range then those.

    Against ballistic missile technology, I'd Imagine they'd be pretty useless though. One just has to do an airburst at a thousand feet and Israel goes black. Their is a plus to this though. Weaponizing a nuclear weapon into a ballistic missle is a lot harder then just as a bomb. That'll give Israel a few more years to act for that scenario.

    One thing that Iran has to be concerned about is that if they hit Israel with a nuke, Israel will not be the only victims. Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq will all most likely receive dangerous levels of fall out. And I doubt they'd be very happy about that.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Wrong , they will take half the planes Israel would send.

    They would then gather support from the rest of the ME and put the pressure on Israel and the USA.

    Obama will be very clear to Israel that if they do this , it's THEIR deal.

    Not to mention the Strait of Hormuz , which would be shut down because of sunburn missiles hiding in the nearby mountains. Guess what that does to oil prices ?

    Israel will never attack Iran with Obama in office in the same way the USA would never crush Iran's democracy with Truman in office, as soon as he left and a repub came in they went right for it.

    If the GOP wins in 2012 we can look for a strike by Israel, but not sooner.

    And when the USA backs up Israel we will have started a war with a very well armed nation that is bigger than both Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

    Vote GOP for more war , but this war is for real , Iran can hurt us badly , it won't homemade bombs placed by a barefoot man.

    Well you've definitely surpassed yourself here. This is by far your dumbest post to date. Take a bow.

    ME countries have given Israel clearance to fly over there territory to attack Iran. They do not want an Iranian nuclear state, because Persians and Arabs do not get along.

    The only thing you are right about is that Obama is to chickenshit to do what is right, and it will have to wait a couple years for us to get on the right page for this one.

    Yeah, you asswipes said that about Iraq too.
    4th largest army and a "well armed" country at the time.
    Took us all of, what, 100 hours to reduce them to a bunch of surrender monkeys.

    Iran is nothing to shrug our shoulders at, but asswipe is kidding himself if he thinks the Iranian military has half the training that the IDF has, and none of the combat experience. Their technology is at least a generation behind Israel's as well.
