US: Israel can't destroy Iran's nuclear program    Yitzhak Benhorin
1. playing with political fire
Try and bully the Americans into promising military action may lead the foreign affairs neophyte Romney to more than hint at an attack. In such case the war weary electorate will flee from Republicans like the plague and give Obama an additional edge without having to say a word. Americans are already suspicious of the Romney Ryan Ayn Rand approach to economics and their war on women's health.

2. He knows they made the decision...
I believe Israel has made a decision, and that decision is to not wait for Mr. Obama, not because they don't believe he won't attack Iran, it is because the US can strike Iran at will for months with heavy bombers such as the B-52, B-1,B-2 that can carry more weapons on one plane than 20 Israeli F-15 or F-16. Israel only has a few days at the most to destroy Iran's nuclear sites. I believe the next few months will be very tense.

5. In case anyone is confused....what is happening is this...
1. Obama 2012 election mantra is, if you choose Romney, we will go to war and we'll be bankrupt. Choose me. (in reality, he will cooked the number to makes the economy looks good) 2. See Syria over there ? Yeah.... the shia Iran don't like it when their alawite brothers are replaced with TROO MOOSLEEM. 3. Russia, China wants Iran to be a nuclear state so they can nukes Saudi or Israel and therefore destroy themself, so Russia and China can go in and takes the spoil (iran) 4. USA is using the TROO MOOSLEEM Muslim brotherhood to do the dirty job of replacing Assad, Syria will probably be given to MB (Turkey, Egypt). MB now rules Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Libya. I hope Russia considers to be the leader in Orthodox Christianity, otherwise the christian community in the middle east will be dead in 2100.

6. Why is everyone assuming ....
.... that Israel will confine itself to conventional weapons? A nuclear strike on Iran will not only "slow down" its nuclear ambitions, but will put an end to Iran. That's a good thing. I just wish there were a way to airlift Iranian Jews, Ba'hai and Zoroastrians to safety, first.

9. ISRAEL CAN AND WILL
Enough defeatism from this jumped-up and impertinent fellow Dempsey .Israel is plenty capable .

10. General Martin Dempsey looks like Obama's puppet
This guy can't even win a war against sandal wearing boots Taliban, Al queda in Afghanisthan. Does he ever finished his training ? or is he a rich parent's son that got the best spot in the military position ? Goodness sake, he is a disgrace to the USA military. And the president of USA is now a pro Palestine, pro Muslim Brotherhood, lying president that cooks the economic numbers to make it looks better than reality.

12. Why do they look SO Bloody WORRIED?
Trust the smarties at the Pentagon....never! Last few months these 2 "experts" visited Jerusalem too many times to even count...trying to convince their Israel "Friends" not 2 take any action B4 Re-Election time come Nov. Since the American Civil War the USA did not experience an enemy Miliraty attack on USA soil proper, and they are ordering a country under dearh threat to warm its Balls.Get lost and run 4 another MacBig!!!

13. Delaying the nuclear weapon by 2 years is more than enough.
But the problem is, Israel should focus on Assad first, it really is Iran achilles heel. If Assad falls, some Iranians will see that as "hey, we can do it here too" moment.

14. # 7
80 million angry Iranians can't even get their government off their backs. They are no threat to Israel. They were not much threat to Iraq either.
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (08.14.12)
15. US ADVICE TO ISRAEL
DEMSEY AND PANETTA ARE NOT HERE TO CONVINCE NETANYAHU NOT TO ATTACK. THEY ARE HERE TO STIMULATE THE ISRAEL POPULACE TO BE AGAINST AN ATTACK ON IRAN SO AS TO PUT SOME BRAKES ON NETANYAU'S MOVES. SO WE HAVE ALL KINDS OF MISSINFORMATIOM HITTING THE NEWSWAYS TO PUT FEAR IN ISRAELIES OF AN ATTACK ON IRAN/ WAR BEFORE ELECTIONS COULD BE DEVISTAING FOR OBAMA.

16. thank you #6
For informing us that the fate of Iranian Jewry is mere collateral damage. Scary, sad and pathetic.

18. #8 oh please, the arabs beats Persia....
Hey ayatollah baby, where did you think you get your religion from ? Caliph Umar led his massively inferior army against Persia and conquered it and "converts" it into Islamic country. So please, don't give that "we can crush you with our bare fist" blabbing. The greeks, arabs conquered you. Iraqis almost beat you. And you're now a puppet of Russia and China. You're just too high to realized it.

19. slowing is more than enough
slowing is more than enough, else the Ayatollahs will have finished and packaged nukes ready for express delivery in few months time.
Dan Goldman   (08.15.12)
20. This is just more U.S pressure on
Israel. It's not the reality. And yes, get the Jews, Bahai, and Zoroastrians out of Iran now!
Reuven   (08.15.12)
21. Iran nuke program
why should the Israelis listen to our Government after all our Government is supplying terroist in Seria,they supplied terroist in Egypt,and Libia.Our Government fears that if Isreal strikes Iran it could trigger home grown terrroist in this country.Besides our country is up to its arm pits in moral and ethical problems we'll never fix.If we were in Israels shoes I don't think we would wait either.Sanctions don't work and they never will.What ever happens we sure better support Israel and its people,militarily and prayerfully.
larry cornelius ,   Brownwood,Texas   (08.15.12)
22. Of course Israel can't stop Iran, neither can the US...
but Israel with or without the US can "set back" Iran's nuclear capability by a couple of years, then do it again in a couple of years, and then again in a couple more. Sooner or later Iran will get the point. Bombs are cheaper than nuclear facilities.
Robert ,   USA   (08.15.12)
23. ungrateful bastards
I guess dempsey was not impressed with israeli attack of osiraq as it saved countless GI lives. Obama has no intention of ever attacking iranian facilities unless kameinei atttacks the US. They are going for containement like north korea. Besides obama can says whatver he wants., he does have some kinship to islam, no question about it so iran or turkey or egypt having nuclear bombs seesm to be reasonable to him. israel should decide for itself but in the meantime, rush manufacture of extra iron dome batteries, stock additional planes and material, secure oil supplies and get shelters and masks ready. Forget about the US.

24. If it's too late to stop Iran's nuclear program,
we can thank the U.S. and Obama for that. He purposely dragged his feet for 4 years, and seems more intent on installing many Muslim Brotherhood governments in the mid-east than being concerned with Iran's nuclear weapons. You'd think he was on the Iranian payroll considering his performance the last 4 years.

26. Get the Jews Out First
Like any good attorney, who knows his case is lost, the Chief of Staff and Panetta ( orchestrated by Obama) is confusing the situation, and Israels response, as well as the USA. Panetta, and Hillary and Obama said Iran wont be allowed to have a nuclear capability. that aggressive diplomacy must be our recourse. Bibi has said basically yes, but...the final option is up to him..after all, we are being threatened daily. Now, again, Iran says it will take out the IDF if Israel attacks. ( others say all of Israel). Soooo, where are we? Assuming Israel/USA does NOT attack its sites..AND Iran tests successfully,just where does it go from there? Korea has nukes..and 6 countries have boycotted it..to some extent. The USA has done nothing, there or in Syria. Would they attack Iran? Its all just smoke and mirroes. The US is looking at the elections..and Russia/China/Syria. A game of monopoly in the world is being played out, similar to WW1 and 2.Again, we Jews are the fall guy. Israel, Zionism and Diasora ZJews are not at war with Iran...they neve fought a war..yet Iran's proxies are sniping away where they can.. and making mischief. As Sarah ccommented...why just conventional weaons..why not nuclear? That will effectively stop Iran for decades...the areas will be too radioactive. Israel could also use cobalt, lithium bombs..to END the Guards. To one comment: 80m Iranians vs 500 Israeli nukes..what are the odds? But, my advice, get the Jews out first. This is why Iran's nukes must be destroyed..again and again and again, if necessary. They (like Hitler) have threatened our destruction..advocated global jihad, and demand we all convert to their faith or face the consequences I, for one, believe their statements. Like Hitler, they want a new world order...eliminating the Zionists (Jews) and the infidels ( Americans). Nothing has changed but some players.

28. The only way to win
f we want to win and stop Iran we must decapitate the mad Mullah's and the Ahmadinejad's in the Government in a night of "wet work".
