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.
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.
Ya , ok.
He dreams about war with Iran. Of course he offers no evidence for an "8 day claim'
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.
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.
