1. Pandemonium may be deliberate

We can't be sure if the blabbering politicians & army officers are just speaking their mind mindlessly or if their purpose is either to have some political effect on Iran (unlikely) or to scare the west into taking stronger, more effective sanctions & other measures to derail the Iranian nuclear program. This might be a concerted effort given the recent similar talk in the UK media about preparedness for possible military action.
2. for those reason Israel will never attack Iran
E,M Jordan is Pales ,   SF   (11.03.11)
First Iran dose not have enough technology to make Nuclear bomb, Second Russian are not stupid to provide technology to fanatics Muslim nations because the Russian aware of their ideology too, Third right now Iran is divide nation and even Israel has some support in Iran and Israel dose not want to united them beside after the fanatics regime Israel will have huge interest in Iran, Fourth Israel will never reveal incase Israel really want to attack like they did to Iraq and Syria.
3. A general message to abroad
Yael Schlichting ,   Raubling - Germany   (11.04.11)
The issue has come up with the so called Arab Spring. I also cannot imagine, that Israel will be striking Iran's facilities. Such a strike would be too complex to be accomplished with Israels Air Force. Many of the targets are hardened, so that they would require many strikes and bomb damage assessment between the strikes. In order to effectively disintegrate Iran's nuclear capabilities, Israel also would have to take out its counter strike capability, which would be the most complex task. All this will require thousands of air strikes. At the same time, Israel might be left without sufficient air defense regarding Syria. The Syrian air force is by far inferior to the IAF, but if too many IAF jets are involved in striking Iran, it might make it feasible for Syria to lead an air strike against Israel. At the end, only the U.S. has the capability to lead such a strike against Iran and Israel may take part in it, but I don't believe, that Israel can perform this alone neglecting it's deterrence against its direct neighbors. With its drills Israel is sending a strong Message to Syria and Hezbollah and by the way readies for a potential conflict. I have the impression, that Assad comes closer to loosing his restraint from striking Israel, while the U.S. is withdrawing from Iraq, thus opening a land corridor between Iran and Syria. Thinking this scenario, the message also could mean: Look Ahmadingdong and you Chamenei: If you intend to strike Israel via Syria, we will be able to hit you really hard at home!
4. Moran Azulay, IDF confusing you is irrelevant, IDF confusing
leo ,   usa   (11.04.11)
Iran is priceless.
5. debate
joe tango ,   usa   (11.04.11)
I am not going to discuss this in debt, but if this is a real debate or tactic to stop any militart action these people should be jailed fir treason immediately. Countrys cant defend them selves with a military out of control and some israeli politions and military officials basically working with the enemy and the US and the British. If military officials and politions spoke like this before DDay Europe would still be under the Nazis.
6. Misdirection!
Taz Man ,   USA   (11.04.11)
Yeah, I really think there's something else going on here...
7. Let no one teach us "Confusion":we're the Masters!

8. hi
J.Gad ,   Israel   (11.04.11)
Israel have the best technology to know everything about it. Besides that, nobody seems to be interested to open a debate about stuxnet or who create it, neither to speculate about the russians scientists that were killed months ago in a plane crash.
9. Asteroid to approach earth!
J.Gad ,   Israel   (11.05.11)
