1. I don't think so ...
Blues ,   Portland, USA   (09.18.06)
I think Yitzhak Benhorin got it wrong this time. I don't think the US will answer Iran with a military intervention. We will see the US public relations machine go into over-time, but that's it. Now, if there were some provication, well, that would be a different story.
2. interesting article. just be sure not to tell anyone
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (09.18.06)
boy, iran will never suspect that this is going to happen.

Mike ,   Atlanta, USA   (09.18.06)
LOL. Provocation? You mean like that attack on our fleet in the Gulf of Tonkin? The WMD possessed by Hussein? Our last two major wars commenced on the basis of mythology. Why not the next one?
4. 1-Hey dummy, what's not "provocation" in imagine a world w/o
ITS ABOUT TIME! ,   USA   (09.18.06)
Israel and America? Proxy war against Israel? Economic war against America? Terrorist war against America, Israel & the world? It's long overdue.
5. 1 Ill take your bet... I would think this
freedom ,   canada   (09.18.06)
is what is likely will happen.. Just think how safe the world has become with the United Nations. You can see the big picture right.....
6. Attacking Iran will be the most idiotic act
zeev ,   geneva, switzerland   (09.18.06)
Bush, who has no inch in the region, is looking for war to destroy it and give the weapons' industry more work. Jews must be the first to oppose the Bush idiocy because his idiocy will cancel any possibility for them to live in this region. Instead of following Bush, I propose that Israel invites Ahmadinejad and speaks honestly about his proposal for peace.: the creation of one democratic state with equal rights for all, regardless of their religion. Ahmadinejad is son of this region, and he is more interested in peace than Bush. Bush proved daily to be idiot. Don't follow an idiot man.

8. More Fun in the Middle East
Dave Levi ,   Burbank. USA   (09.18.06)
Listening to pundits for 3 years now regarding Iran, there is no way the US will attack that country, short of intelligence showing it is about to attack US. Bush has no support for any military attack anywhere, except perhaps Al Qaeda. Attacking Iran, with it's oil leverage, would result in $100 barrel oil prices, and Iran's counter attack on Israel with everything it has, joined most likely by Syria, and maybe other Muslim nations. Hezbollah cells in the US and elsehwere are just waiting for such a scenario, having their own agenda (mainly Jewish sites). The Palestinians under Hamas, will create havoc..and it's possible, IsraeliArabs will join in. The entire Muslim world, as with the Pope, will become hostile and threaten Christians everywhere they can. No, I think not.
9. Zeev - shut up. You're not for US or Israel
USA love freedom! ,   USA   (09.18.06)
Switzerland is built on the spoils of Israel, arab plundered peoples, and world dictators. Swiss never fight for freedom, just trade in the lost freedom of others. Shut up. You are not American.
10. #3 - Have you ever heard of "terrorism"?
11. #7 - Yeah! and I'm one of them! :)
12. 9: you don't love freedom, you love destruction
zeev ,   geneva, switzerland   (09.18.06)
The peoples of the region like to live in peace in their region. You are not for freedom, but to oppress others and destroy the region. Where do we, Jews, go if you destroy the region? We are in this region and would like to live in peace and not to follow a cowboy from Texas.
13. Star Wars ...Revenge of the Sith - Bush the iditot
fadi ,   lebanon   (09.18.06)
Sounds very clean and neat on the drawing boards .... very nice article based ona very nice assumption ... the iranians will sit there and watch the attack !!! I just want to draw attention that there a 'very minor detail' that this article 'missed' talking about .... the consequences of such an attack: 1. US forces will be annihilated in iraq .. So far the americans have been suffering from sunni resistance which represents the minority ... any attack on iran will unleash hell as all southern shia provinces - main route for american supplies- will join the fighting. 2. Crude oil prices probably will go to 120$ a barrel. So start looking for water fuelled cars. 3. The glim part is israel - keep it going guys seems u wanna see shahab missile showers on israel and belive me a shahab rocket is not a katyusha 4. Not to forget american and israeli interests will be targeted all over the world. 5. Anyone forgot the mutual defense treaty between syria and iran. Get ready for a new war at the Golan heights front. 6. Hizbullah are still furious cause 1701 resolution was a stalemate between the parties while ground war was a disaster for israel. Probably we will join the war to correct that mistake. Put it in another words World War 3 so good luck for all !!!
14. #10 have you heard of state terrorism !
fadi ,   lebanon   (09.18.06)
if not follow up the news u moron other than on CNN and Cartoon networks !
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (09.18.06)
It loooks like a good preparation..........theoretically,of course!
16. Persia WILL be a World Power. No Attacks
Darius The Great ,   Persian Empire   (09.18.06)
The difference between Israel/USA is that while Persia makes empty threats to scare others from attacking it, Israel and the USA actually go ahead and perform the attacks. Persia has THE LARGEST army in the world. Within 1 year, there will be an extensive Anti-Air system setup around the country. A year after that, there will be an upgrade to that defense, with an Anti-Air system even more effective than the American "Patriot Missile." This is a Russian system. Persia is simply seeking a return to the past. It is a proud country, and will not be talked down to. If you talk down to Persia, it will dismiss everything you say, and continue doing what it was with even more force. You can't win by being a Bully. An American Attack on Persia is, well, "War." Keep in mind that 60% of Iraq's population are shiaa and followers of Persian rule. Their leaders sought refuge in the country during Saddam's reign, and operated from there. They feel no connection to any country but Persia. The "Arab States" are dismissing their rule, because they are a different sect of Islam. So they relate to and follow the will of the Persians. With over 150,000 American Troops in Iraq, an attack on Persia would see an all out attack on American Forces in Iraq. Hezbollah IS being armed by the Persians. Infact, they have a large supply of Highly Effective long range guided bombs at their disposable. They were instructed, however, not to use them in the recent 34 day war as it would give away their full capabilities and complicate things. They are meant as a last resort measure. Attack Persia and Hezbollah, Hamas, and all other groups in Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria would start ground attacks inside Israel. With the new Anti-Tank and portable Anti-Air missiles at their disposal, Israel will be unable to effectively use Helicopers and tanks, crippling its ability to defend the mainland, and forcing it to retreat farther back. While the Persians have never instigated a war, they are very well prepared to deal with the Israeli's. In the end, Nuclear, Chemical, and Biological weapons would lay waste to the region, Israel bearing the blunt of the attack due to its small size. The new Persian naval defense system is also able to interrupt the flow of Oil through the Persian Gulf. These include a new Flying Boat, as well as a new Torpedo which is created of an alloy undetectable by Radar. While its range is fairly short, it is the fastest such Torpedo in the world, and it is strong enough to take down Carriers and Oil Tankers with ease. Such a move would take oil prices to over $200 a barrel. If you were to pay $10/gallon for gas, the low to mid-income americans would be unable to go to work due to the high cost, and this would cause a sudden stop in the Economy. The Persians have also recently tested a 2200 pound guided bomb, which should be in Mass Production soon. This would allow them to devistate any ground units the US may try to insert in the region. This is the Persian Empire we are talking about. The Aryan Race. We have always been a World Power. We are simply trying to rise back up to that position. It cannot be stopped. Accept it, and work on Peace, rather than War. Remember that it was the Persians who gave the jews refuge throughout all of history. It was the Arab states who kicked them out.. In the Persian Capitol, there are 25 Synagoges. And outside of Israel, it hosts the highest number of Jews. Peace, my friends. Not War. In War, there are no Winners. Especially when you are up against a Ready and Willing opponent such as The Great Persian Empire. Thanks for reading.

You are either dum or to busy filling your pockets in your "neutral" switserland.Inviting our iranian adolf to come to Israel,you have got to be kidding.As a ex european i know why impotent europe hates the U.S.Meanwhile forgetting,it is the same americans who fought two worldwars there and helped establish europe"s current wealth and security.Maybey you could use your energy to help to get back our money from our civilized swiss,from the jews that perished in the war.

20. to #10
Mike ,   Atlanta, USA   (09.18.06)
I notice that you didn't contradict my claims. Every state engages in terrorism. Why bother addressing it? But since you brought it up, can you identify instances (outside of the '79 Revolution), when Iran terrorized the United States? Probably a good thing to know, because we have public records of NSA documents that definitely show U.S. involvement in terrorism against Iranians. Look, I hate the Iranian government as well. Just get your reasoning together.
21. Israel begs US to attack Iran
Todd Roy ,   US   (09.18.06)
Yitzhak Benhorin and the rest of the warmongering Jews are getting too excited having extra ordinary wet dreams over the thought of US attacking Iran exactly like the time US was pushed by them to attack Iraq. Don't they know what will happen to them if Iran is attacked? Then they will cry foul, oh we are the victims, oh we are so innocent, oh the whole world is anti-semitic, oh we have no land NO MORE.
Maher ,   Arabian peninsule   (09.18.06)
Iran is a muslim country,Iran has brave people ready for any war to any country. You can say that you want,but Iran has the things clear,one agression is a war. I hope that USA acept it.
23. To #7- 70% of Americans...
Todd Roy ,   US   (09.18.06)
A retarded moron like Bush was elected twice, don't you think something must be wrong with 70% of Americans? And you are praying day and night for bombs to kill Iranians? Then you call other people terrorist and murderer? I really feel sorry for you. You must be living a very dark and miserable life. you poor little thing.
24. #13 & 16 - You are both delusional
Johnson ,   USA   (09.18.06)
I guess you have yet to face American firepower first hand. Trust me it is not pleasant. Should the US attact Iraq, which 70% plus Americans support, and Syria wants to get involved then all cards are off the table, and may God have mercy on your souls because we will not restrain our forces..
25. 12 Zeev You are NO Jew you posted Israel Hate on

27. I speak for myself Gabriele
zeev ,   geneva switzerland   (09.18.06)
For you a real jew is a zionist who accepts to run after Olmert and Bush as a fool. For me a zionist cannot be a Jew, and a Jew cannot a a zionist. Zionism is a disaster for Jews and humanity. We Jews will never reach peace with such a racist ideology. You have the right to disagree with me, and I have the right to disagree with you and your zionists.
28. 27 zeev ,geneva Your statement shows You are a Hate Monger
Gabrielle Goldwater ,   Geneva Switzerland   (09.18.06)
against Jews: "Anti-Zionism = Anti-Semitism" - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth. "Antisemitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently antisemitic, and ever will be so. "Why is this? You know that Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land. The Jewish people, the Scriptures tell us, once enjoyed a flourishing Commonwealth in the Holy Land. From this they were expelled by the Roman tyrant, the same Romans who cruelly murdered Our Lord. Driven from their homeland, their nation in ashes, forced to wander the globe, the Jewish people time and again suffered the lash of whichever tyrant happened to rule over them. Wake up You Hater
