1. What will the US do over Iran ?
DT ,   TA Israel   (12.21.10)
You don't need to be a genius to know from the ouset the answer -Nothing. So far Wikileaks has confirmed only what people already knew but the governments never had the courage to say it publicly
2. Our muslum "president" will do nothing to iran, just as he
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.21.10)
did nothing to north korea when they committed acts of war on south korea this year. NEVER trust a muslum president.
3. USA made largest cadaverpouches procurement order for Israel
Tayfun_Turkey ,   Istanbul   (12.21.10)
They will donate to Israel all body bags free of charge Relax!
4. dear "Israel",
Salma ,   Palestine   (12.21.10)
Please Grow up and Solve Your Problems Yourself . Bibi, you cannot look to someone outside yourself to solve your problems !!
5. We will not open yet another war front
Cameron ,   USA   (12.21.10)
The US populace will not stand for it.
6. 2 Bunnie - Why Wouldn't Bush?
Mark of Lewiston ,   Lewiston USA   (12.21.10)
Why wouldn't Bush attack Iran or North Korea either? Ever thought that the US military was a bit overextended? How many dead American kids are you looking for? Iraq and Afghanistan aren't enough for you? How many thousand do you think would die in another Korean War? 50,000? 100,000? Last time was no cake walk. And North Korea now has nukes and is still allied with China.
7. Bibi has no choice.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (12.21.10)
Eventual attack on Iran's facilities. If US is too chicken-hearted to assume it's role as "World Leader", it can be sucked in unwillingly, and play a subordinate role.
8. Bombing Iran?
Yossef   (12.21.10)
The question is simple: do we want a nuclear race in ME? Iran is not Israel only problem, we must reach an agreement with Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Jordan, all the ME countries threatened by Iran, get their green light to bomb the nuclear Iran sites. If the bombing is made under such an agreement, the world would have just to acknowledge. In return we can help Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia to build civil nuclear facilities.
9. @ # 1
Hakim ,   Palestine   (12.21.10)
What will Israel do over Iran? Answer= Nothing absolutly nothing Israel doesnt have the courage. They prefer to fight the innocent and defenseless.
10. Easy answer: Nothing
Nour ,   One-State   (12.21.10)
You're on your own buddies. Stop asking others to send off their children to serve your interests. Either man up, or ZIP.
11. #9 did you ever see a poll of how many israels want a
Omri ,   Israel   (12.21.10)
military strike? Also you better check you're head again if you thing Hamas and Hezbollah are 'innocent and defenseless'. Are you too blind to see they are openly sworn to destroy us and never stop firing rockets at us?
12. #6 Mark of Lewiston
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (12.21.10)
Do you think, you are safe in the USA if you decide to ignore the Iranian threat?
13. Tayfun (or is it a storm in a tea cup?)
Ehud ,   TA   (12.21.10)
Political Islamists (no need to put in "radical" here, it is implied in "Islamists") disturbingly take contradicting positions all the time: If they suffer the loss of lives as a result of their planned violent actions against the Israeli blockade and attacks on Israeli soldiers, they cry "but we didn't want to hurt anybody and we accept lsrael in the region. We just want peace for everybody." Then again, they dream of Israelis in body bags. Dreams of dead enemies, conspiracy theories, and restitution of lost grandeur have always characterized the Islamist path to poverty and ignorance. Meanwhile, infant mortality until age 6 is 33% higher in Turkey than in Gaza. Maybe the Palestinians should send them a flotilla with humanitarian aid?
14. #8 Yossef, the magic word is Palestine
Nour ,   One-State   (12.21.10)
Justice and freedom to the Palestinians = Arab consensus against nuclear Iran. Otherwise you are advised to stock on emergency supplies and better still pack your bags.
15. 12 Albrecht Klein - More Worried About Russians
Mark of Lewiston ,   Lewiston USA   (12.21.10)
The Russians and North Koreans have proven (and tested) nukes. And one of our parties is trying its damnedest to restart the Cold War and one faction of that party wants to invade North Korea. The US does not have the resources or the manpower. It is Europe's turn. Or you all can learn to live with a threat. I lived most of my life with about 10,000 nukes aimed at me. Reagan got the number reduced. But the current Republican party wants to start it all over again. Just because it would embarrass our first black President. They are for Party-First and Country-Last. I can live with another minor threat more than I can with several hundred thousand dead American kids in a foreign land. One daughter has been at war all over the Middle East and East Africa for 9 years, so far, and one son has stared across the Korean DMZ as well as 2 tours in Iraq and Qatar and Kuwait. It's your turn. I've had enough.
16. Dear Bibi, the US will not get involved in another
seadog1946 ,   Ong's Hat, NJ USA   (12.21.10)
land war in the middle east... we are running out of body bags and the artificial limbs' manufacturers are currently at full production. Perhaps you should be more proactive and let your vaunted IAF test it's mettle by blowing up the Russian technicians swarming over the Iranian nuclear facilities.
17. US to PM: we adopted the "old wolf" strategy
hermin ,   Haifa, Israel   (12.21.10)
Meaning that we sit on our ass and lick our balls.
18. 14 Don't overestimate Arab support..
for your "magic word".
19. 15 Iran a minor threat?
Fanatical, foaming at the mouth religionists with nuclear weapons, with black market (or N. Korean) WMD already positioned inside US cities?
20. #14
Logic ,   Israel   (12.21.10)
Have you been living under a rock for the past two weeks? Countless Wikileaks memos proved with quotes from Arab leaders across the region that they are focused like a laser on Iran and find the Levant conflict to be a low priority, irrelevant nuisance.
21. #15 Mark of Lewiston
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (12.21.10)
The problem is, MAD worked with the Soviet Union, it will work with Russia and China and probably also with North Korea. But it will definitively not work with Iran. "We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world." - Grand Ayatollah Imam Sayyed Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini
22. nour,yossef aren't you tired about your old propaganda
dovdevan ,   ashdod,israel   (12.21.10)
israel will do whatever is necessary to stop the nuclear iranian atomic bomb and you can see israel into action every day by different mean !! killing of the scientist in charge of the program,virus sent into their computers ,explosion in bases where ballistic missiles could be use with nuclear warhead .if necessary israel will bomb iranian infrastructures because time is running out and Obama is very aware about that .
23. Nour
Yossef   (12.21.10)
I will no pack any bag i'll die with you :-) And if I had to pack, where ? To Algeria ? I'm not sure to get my family house back :( Best to stay here and to fight. There is a point you didn't understand well, we are ready to die for Israel with the same strenght you are ready to die for Palestine. And as an arab jew I have no complex neither guilt feeling. I think that you can understand. But for the same reason I am not your ennemy if you decide I'm not.
24. Nour AL-Hahma
JUDAH THE LION   (12.21.10)
Since when did Israel have asked others to send their children to serve in our ISRAELI ARMY.You idiot,you are asking your Islamic & Muslims world over 1.5 billion and still you could not defeat few million JEWS IN ISRAEL. Do you know why? Because our G D is with us. In the meantime,relax and smoke some HASISH,and listen to the song by the late and my favourite SINGER the late FARID AL ATRASH called NOURA YA NOURA
25. Nour
JUDAH THE LION   (12.21.10)
Naqba no 2 or 3 is coming soon.You will pack your bags with your donkeys.
26. Noodles at 7...We are on the same page
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (12.21.10)
and the US has already lost it`s status as leader of the free world to Israel, as the implementation of Stuxnet clearly demonstrates...
27. Tough Decisions
Brod ,   USA   (12.21.10)
The PA Islamist-Jihadists are tentacles of Arab Islamist-Jihadist states and the fanatical Ayatollahs. How could Israel ever make peace with such an entity whose handlers and masters are hellbent on the destruction of Israel? Israel should be realistic about this and not be pushed by external forces to commit suicide. Israel cannot and must depend on the Obama administration to stop Iran nuke. Hussien Obama is NOT a Truman or a Nixon. Contaminated by Jeremiah Wright and the ideology of his early childhood by his Islamist fathers, Obama is the antithesis of an American President. Israel would have to stand firm, united and strong in defending herself against the Islamist-Jihadist fanatics in Iran that have threatened to obliterate Israel repeatedly, and are feverishly working on their nukes to accomplish their evil intention of effecting a mega Holocaust on Israel.
28. Correction #27 Tough Decisions
Brod ,   USA   (12.21.10)
Paragraph 2, first sentence should read, "Israel cannot and must NOT depend..."
29. my post was to nour and salma not yossef sorry
DOVDEVAN ,   ashdod,israel   (12.21.10)
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (12.21.10)
Again.This time, let him repeat the question 6 times to see if he gets a better response.
