Mr. Netanyahu is attempting to get the US to attack, and that is the reason for the constant saber rattling with no action. As far as I can tell, Israel has pretty much done what it wants to do regardless of what the US says. It puts what it sees as its interests first, which is something all other countries but the US seem to do.
If there is an attack on Iran, it will lead to far more disastrous consequences than what the politicians say will happen. How many times in history have men promised a conflict will be short and successful, and how many times has that actually happened?
President Reagan helped to bring down the Soviet Union without military action, and that was one of his greatest accomplishments. If you say “Aqua-velva-dab” is nuts and will do anything, perhaps he is, but the entire leadership and military of Iran is not.
The main threat to the US are the Muslims we have within our borders. We should refuse to allow any Muslims to immigrate to this country, or even to go to school here. If I were Empress for a Month, I would kick all Muslims out and demolish the mosques. Iran is not a pressing problem for the US. Let Israel fight its own battles.
The Soviet Union wasn't a radical "religious" entity. A truly united Middle East with Iran as the acknowledged head would prove to be seriously disaterous for a long time and would eventually require a lot more nukes than anyone in their right mind wants to contemplate to defang. I'm with your Empress for a Day plan - it's our own misguided policies that have given them the current foothold. But, it is far too late in the game for that to serve as a true fix - I would guess that there are some nukes with our name on them waiting for the right time and "provocation. It has all been allowed to go on for far too long to get a "shotless" solution.
I would say that Netanyahu's "saber-rattling" is actually the sound of an Israel that has been backed into a corner by her supposed allies and she will have no choice but to actually take some swipes. Bibi knows as well as anyone what the potential ramifications are and he is hoping for at least some tacit moral support to keep the whole area from going geiger counter hot. For Israel, it's now a true case of fighting for survival and I would posit, that if it were my country I would be willing to take it to any lengths to fight for survival - we have always been a modicum of a deterrent and under this administration we have become openly hostile to Israel which leaves them in the inenviable position of having to make horribly hard decisions.
The problem is that America has always been touted as a Free coutry, especially for religious freedom.
However I don’t believe the founders ever thought of Islam as a parasitic religion that would one day set out to destroy the country it feeds off of.
I agree we should strictly limit immigration of Islamics and we should watch those already her to see thatthey do not threaten us with Sharia law or their crazed jihads.
Certainly Israel is looking out for itself, it would be crazy not to. They know all too well what happens when a mob run by fanatics is on the loose. Our American politicians are trying to act as though nothing is wrong as country after country is being swallowed up by crazed Muslims.
George Bush called Islam a religion of peace, one of his most stupid quotes.Islam is a conquering reich, just as the Nazi’s were.The religious aspect of it is a sham, a cover.It is there to fool the ignorant.
I don’t believe anyone has an idea the Consequences of attacking Iran now.
But even I know the consequences of a crazed, suicidal, pumped up mob, with a Nuclear weapon and a promise to annihilate Israel.
We cannot allow this crazed pack of heathen beheaders to gain a Nuclear weapon, and the means to deliver it. No matter the consequences now, they are better than the consequences later.
Iran wants "the bomb" for the "Little Satan," Israel, and the "Big Satan," America.
