Netanyahu On US Embassy Attacks: 'You Want These Fanatics To Have Nuclear Weapons?'
http://www.businessinsider.com ^ | september 15, 2012 | grace wyler

Posted on 09/16/2012 5:00:58 AM PDT by lowbridge

In an interview with Meet The Press set to air Sunday, Netanyahu warned American lawmakers that Iran's leaders, like the protesters, are guided by an "unbelievable fanaticism."

"They put their zealotry above their survival," Netanyahu told MTP host David Gregory. "It's the same fanaticism that you see storming your embassies today. You want these fanatics to have nuclear weapons?"

Netanyahu is as stupid as neocons and Zero just like all current mainstream Israel’s politicians. A bitter disgrace to great leaders who brought once proud nation at the time. Iran is not as urgent problem as Muzzie Brois and Al-Qaeda but he is clueless on how to deal with a really big problem so he is looking for a solid target as he is a frustrating lab rat.
In reality Iranese regime and Al-Qaeda attacking America in ME are absolute antagonistic powers.
Wise leaders has to look for solutions to play them against each other.

Thanks for filling us in. We were all so deluded. So, we should wait until Iran has a nuclear weapon and then get them to nuke Egypt? Is that your cunning plan? You are brilliant.

Here's the plan, see: We make a video and put it on YouTube, where Morsi is saying in Arab-talk that Ahmadinejad is a blow-hard faggot and ain't got the guts to nuke Israel and we make another where, see, Ahmadinejad, he says in Iranese that Morsi used to do it his mother and that when his father caught them at he, he made him do it with his brothers. We got to find out his brothers names in Iranese, first, though. Then Ahmadinejad, he says that he don't need to nuke Israel because after the election, once he gets all the Jews to vote for him and everything, that Obama will nuke Israel for them. And then Morsi says that Ahmadinejad really just wants to do it with Israeli boys.

I mean, like, what could go wrong?

I guarantee you his solution is to “talk” as if Iran with a nuke is the same as a playground dust up.

That's the type of idiots that cause war.

Thinking that somehow a lunatic can be reasoned with simply encourages the lunatic.

Anyone that's ever been in a bar fight with some loudmouth knows that.

Unfortunately, Netanyahu doesn’t have your “cunning” or “gift” for long term geopolitical strategy. [/s] He has to worry about keeping his country from potentially getting nuked by messianic Islamist religious fanatics. And he doesn’t even have the luxury of time anymore, so he can’t wait for these sanctions or other half-baked, ineffectual schemes other to start showing results.

BTW Cunning Fish....your name wouldn’t be Hilary Clinton, would it?

Do you really think Iran will have a bomb in a couple of years? I think it won’t and even if it will (hypotethically) the West and Israel won’t be a primary target.
The truth is Israel has the means to stop Iran’s nuclear program without war. Just like US government had the ,means to kill OBL without this bitter invasion to Crapistan.
But for some reason political reasons are taking an upper hand over common sense.
The reality is Al-Qaeda building a superpower nation in North Africa and Middle East. It will be nuclear capable for sure and leaded by nutjobs making Iran’s mullahs look like a bunch of hippies.
And not only I can’t see if everyone in positions of power has a plan to solve it. They are either in denial and supporting this crap.

To the extent your comment is decipherable, I believe it is foolish.
Netanyahu is certainly not stupid; he is aware that Iranian nuclear weapons pose an existential threat to Israel(especially given their oft-expressed desire to annihilate Israel), and a general, but serious, threat to Europe and the USA. Of course, he does not want a war with Iran or he already would have done so. Also, I assume considerable doubt exists in the mind of the IDF that it can be successful without US support or without using tactical nukes.
I follow, I think, your comment about Iran and Al Qaeda being antagonistic to one another, i.e., Shia v Sunni. But have you ever heard the truism that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Well, why do you think it’s a truism?
I’ll tell you why: because it’s true.
It would only take a few well-placed nukes in Israel to destroy it.
Further, Israel has a right to preemptive action under the UN Charter. In my view, the magnitude of Iran’s provocation is close to justifying such action.
Like any thoughtful person, I don’t want another war, especially one in which the USA will certainly be dragged into fighting.
I am sick of wars in the ME, and viscerally, I would like to let the entire Arab and Persian dung pile enjoy the 7th century lifestyle they embrace.
However, if I had any say so in the matter, I would never let Israel face Iranian nukes.
Have you ever heard the expression “Never Again?”

I don’t want to make it personal but it sounds like Hillary is you.
She could be happy to see another “Arab spring” in Iran to make sure if her Muzzie Bros pals are to take over this nuke program.

I’m not a friend of Iran and I think it has to be destroyed but it is as stupid to deal with a problem right now as starting to get rid of rodents at the time your house is on fire.

Where is Netanyahu’s statement on Al-Qaeda??

A couple of things: 1. There won't be an "Arab Spring" in Iran because the Islamists are already in charge. I doubt that will change. 2. Where is Netanyahu’s statement on Al-Qaeda?? Huh? I'm sure somewhere along the line Netanyahu made some specific condemnation of Al Qaeda. However, given Israel's fight against terrorism for its entire existence, it hardly seems necessary to state the OBVIOUS.

Mr. Netanyahu is not being patient. He is doing his best to get the US to attack, because he wants us to fight his battles for him. Like any other country (except ours), he puts the interests of Israel above all else. Perhaps it is time we start thinking of what is best for the US.

Oh, nonsense! Israel is the strongest country in the Middle East and has several nukes. It can defend itself. Islam rules the Middle East now, but they can’t even stop fighting each other, so I don’t see one country, tribe, or sect ruling the entire region. We need to increase our own energy supplies and let the ME oil producing countries wither on the vine.

Well, yes, so why would we want an attack on Iran that would provoke them into trying to close the Straits of Hormuz? Won’t an attack on Iran send the price of oil through the roof?

Why is everyone so keen on an action that will only cause disaster? Unless Iran is utterly obliterated, it will resume its quest to get a nuke. If people are so keen on starting another war, at least make this one effective, which won’t happen. I still say this is insane.

No it isn’t. But the fact is, Iran would have nukes already if not for Russia.

Much monkey biz in the iranian nuke program and our response to it, and there’ll be much more. I’d like to exterminate Iran to the last thing moving, but I’m bloodyminded.
