How will we defend against Iran unilaterally dropping a nuke on Israel?

Israel "is our ally and in that we've made a very strong commitment to support Israel, we will support Israel if her security is threatened."

Crystal Clear

It is just about time to stop playing this game. A good defense is a strong offense.
 
What are we going to do, wait until Iran drops the big one? 24 hours of selective targeting should just about take care of these arrogant idiots.
 
We are not looking for immediate regime change in either Syria or Iran, although it wouldn't bother us in the least, but we cannot wait until they draw first blood. That is a recipe for disaster.

Hope Isreal leads another midnight attack on Iran's nuke building plants.

That would be great.

America has no choice but to support Israel in this matter. Today, Iran threatens Israel. Tomorrow, if given enough time to build up its arsenal of nuclear weapons, Tehran will threaten the United States with these weapons as well.

The islamic funamentalism of the mad mullahs is a growing cancer that must be excised.

We will support Israel if her security is threatened by Iran

............................................................

Britain, France and Israel are female but what is America?
Is it referred to as her or his?

Now Bush is off to Europe in order to make nice with Chirac et al?

Ha, man that is some bold Diplo-speak.

Our French "Allies" and others are probably furious already.

hello IAF....good to see you again.

Have you read this yet?


Excerpt from Porter Goss's testimony before Congress, February 16, 2005:

____________________________________________________________
Begin Excerpt:

IRAN

In early February, the spokesman of Iran's Supreme Council for National Security publicly announced that Iran would never scrap its nuclear program. This came in the midst of negotiations with EU-3 members (Britain, Germany and France) seeking objective guarantees from Tehran that it will not use nuclear technology for nuclear weapons.

Previous comments by Iranian officials, including Iran's Supreme Leader and its Foreign Minister, indicated that Iran would not give up its ability to enrich uranium. Certainly they can use it to produce fuel for power reactors. We are more concerned about the dual-use nature of the technology that could also be used to achieve a nuclear weapon.

In parallel, Iran continues its pursuit of long-range ballistic missiles, such as an improved version of its 1,300 km range Shahab-3 MRBM, to add to the hundreds of short-range SCUD missiles it already has.

Even since 9/11, Tehran continues to support terrorist groups in the region, such as Hizballah, and could encourage increased attacks in Israel and the Palestinian Territories to derail progress toward peace.

Iran reportedly is supporting some anti-Coalition activities in Iraq and seeking to influence the future character of the Iraqi state.

Conservatives are likely to consolidate their power in Iran's June 2005 presidential elections, further marginalizing the reform movement last year.

Iran continues to retain in secret important members of Al-Qai'ida-the Management Council--causing further uncertainty about Iran's commitment to bring them to justice

End Excerpt

____________________________________________________________

Iran is a common enemy of the United States and Israel. I could think of no better friend than Israel to team up with to face these maniacs. I would be willing to bet it will happen sooner than later, because we both face the exact same threat.

Ping.

Conjecture on my part:
Get Syria out of Lebanon, and take care of the leadership and nuke problem in Iran. Thus, the "Palestinians" who might soon have their "Palestine" (the nation being one neighborhood) and aren't about to quit being terrorists, will be more isolated, national, and finally, forced to take responsibility.

Or will it be on to the next terrorist supporting nation again?

Thought you would like this if you hadn't seen it before.

This is what needs to happen again.

Would an army camped on the US border shelling American towns be called a "security threat" by Bush? What does he call Hizbullah, a "Police force"?!

I think the guy is obviously speaking in politic-eze, because reality does not seem to apply here.

Good job, Mr. President.

They ( EU ) thought the ( Kyoto ) treaty made sense , but, president Bush thought it didn't.
Yes, the reason the ( EU ) thought that the Kyoto treaty made sense, is because, it would have made the USA weaker economically, and were trying so hard to push this treaty to make the USA weak.

I gotta thank you. When I was in Israel, I felt an incredible sense of security, and pride. The IDF soldiers were always so sweet to our tour group, especially the bubbes that kept mentioning their granddaughters at home and wouldn't it be nice for them to meet. ;-)
