split ,   USA   (12.24.11)
4. A Nuclear Iran
Steve Goodman ,   Israel   (12.24.11)
It is time to SHUT UP or PUT UP....we are just pushing them to speed up their program, making it more difficult for any nation to shut it down.....
5. One small problem : Mr.Kroenig isn't the President

6. Nuke expert: Time to attack Iran
Adam ,   London   (12.24.11)
I don't understand how The US can complete such a major operation without Israel being dragged in. Surely if this happened the rockets would start flying in to Israel from Iran , Lebanon and Gaza and maybe Syria. What woul be Israels response ? Two things are for certain, time is running out and it probably needs to be done before Egypt becomes stronger.
7. Special Adviser?Heck, my 85-old year mom knows that!
tom ,   tel aviv   (12.24.11)
Personally I am an "Expert" as well... But this scenario would put an end to Husni Obama's plan for future World-Order, so it is rather unlikely. Who said we (Israel) can't do it properly? The question would be: are we prepared & willing to do what it takes (everybody knows what THAT is) ?! With our present leadership I doubt that as well. So, let's learn to love the Iranian Bomb. As a vision of that situation, think Erdogan-mentality with a weapon of mass destruction. Yummy.....
8. Matthew Kroenig Left the Secretary of Defense's office
Devorah   (12.24.11)
when Pinocchio Panetta took the reigns. After reading his CV and the titles of his books, I can understand why.
9. Oops. I misspelled "reins" #8.
Devorah   (12.24.11)
10. You have been warned, don't do it.
Robert ,   Australia   (12.24.11)
A military operation against Iran by either or both the US and Israel would result in the destruction of Israel.
LAWRENCE ,   SAFED ISRAEL   (12.24.11)
Matthew Kroenig is wrong or mistaken .Israel would do a far better job of pushing back iranian nuclear threat than the US could ever manage. Kroenig has things the wrong way round.
12. Surgical strick
Fidel ,   Ghana   (12.24.11)
Better Advicer. You have to do it that the scriptures might be fulfilled, that one third of humans must die at this war when it starts.
13. #3 - what do you suggest?
Michael Redbourn ,   Arad Israel   (12.24.11)
14. To 10
Patrick ,   Paris France   (12.24.11)
Robert you are dreaming, Israel is the heart of the world, Israel G. willing will prevail. We have to destroy Amalek, it is our destiny, pray G. and be hopeful. Believe me, I am a cartesianist : it is a simple as that.
15. To, #10
Israel watchdog ,   Israel   (12.24.11)
Israel will never be destroyed. With G_d, all things are possible!
16. Another Council on foreign relations....
Chris.B ,   Australia   (12.24.11)
nutjob. That group is full of them. As much as the Israeli government fantasize about exponentail 'hoaxes' there is no proof iran has nuclear weapons America has spent millions of American taxpayers money in past 10years and hasn't found any viable proof.
17. Kroenig underestimates Israel
Brod ,   USA   (12.24.11)
This person underestimates Israel's capability. The fact is only Israel has the experience and capability of executing such a delicate operation. Israel should be at the tip of the spear. Others should support Israel in managing the spiralling aftermath. The rest will be done by the freedom loving Persian people who will dethrone the fanatical Ayatollahist tyrannical regime.
18. #14 #15 loonies !!!
Gregg ,   Haifa, IL   (12.24.11)
Dream on.... You are so weak and ignorant that god is the only thing you can believe in
19. Chris B Iran is not allowing full UN inspection. Why? Robert
PETER SM ,   AUSTRALIA   (12.24.11)
Really ? Or are you actually defending Iran?
20. Chris nut job from Oz
Barry ,   Tokyo   (12.24.11)
mind you rown biz pal. Why should you be so concerned with the American taxpayers. I'd be more concerned with your loony left government that is already leading youe nation into econmic disaster. unless you're digging
21. Lets Negotiate
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.11)
and come to a lasting peace. Im tired of all this bickering. Can we extend the hand of friendship and maybe make a deal. Im sure Iran would be fair if we started the negotiations. I used to be a bit of a warmongerer but I've changed my mind recently as I could see where all the mindless violence was heading... All of us being blind and a plague on all our houses.
22. To: No. 10
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.11)
Funny -- can't think why, but Israel doesn't take orders from Canberra. Or Washington D.C., for that matter. Always remember that Israel tried the peaceful way first. Keep that in mind after Israel destroys Iran. And we will.
23. Bomb Iran
noel ,   Ct. USA   (12.24.11)
Bloody chutzpah. Clown never heard of '67 wipe out of Egypt? Lopsided air battles? Syria nuke plant? Could be USA refuses to be embarrassed by little Israel using an annual budget of 1/100th or so that of USA to cripple the Iranian nuke effort plus mil/industrial complex? Maybe both. Piece of cake for Israel too -- from air, sea, & greenies walking or Maglan riding a bit behind lines. What chutzpah!!!!!!
24. The road to disaster goes via ignored signs....
Yael Schlichting ,   Raubling - Germany   (12.24.11)
So, we now have a situation, where Iran cannot be considered weak. If you are professional and go into a problematic situation to fix it, you don't go and fix it a little and hope, that it will stabilize. Next you use a little more of your means..... and again you hope in vain...... Just like the European monetary crisis. No! A professional enters a situation with all means at hand and fixes it with only one goal in mind! Maximize the chances to fix the issue once and for all, while reducing the collateral damages to a minimum. Iran is a problem since it messes around in the ME since years. I am not sure, whether the Iranian leaders are so rational. They have one big goal in mind and they will follow this goal as they always did! If they agree to stop their nuclear activities, they will break the agreement. Just remember what they did with the UK embassy! They don't give a **** for intl conventions and rules. They do what they want.
25. The post at No. 21 is not mine
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.11)
For one thing, I know when to use an apostrophe. For another thing, I am not in the least bit interested in negotiating with the murderous thugs in the Islamic Republic. A plague on THAT house. Bubonic, if possible, please -- and yes, Israel can do it, if need be.
26. To: Noel at No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.24.11)
Ah, brilliant! You are so right. Stuxnet and Duqu dropped the U.S. for a loop. They had no idea .... and the U.S. has no idea what else Israel has in its multi-pronged arsenal, and the idiot in the White House is trembling in his little booties just thinking about what Israel has in store. The combination of Jewish ability and the certainty that we are responsible for our own survival makes for a VERY formidable Israel. The world needs to come to terms with that -- or not. Doesn't change the facts. And the fact is that little tiny Israel is probably the most powerful nation on earth. It's not about quantity; it's about quality. Quality Israel has, in spades. And the will to exercise it -- no more gas chambers and crematoria for us, thank you. We're basically unstoppable. The world needs to come to terms with that, too.
27. Perpetual war justifies Greater Israel, read 1984.
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (12.24.11)
Only thing that will save the Jews is true democracy in Palestine Israel, 2 states. 1 country, 1 person 1 vote.
28. CFR ?
NITRO25 ,   Clearwater, USA   (12.24.11)
Any advice from a CFR Advisor/member, in and of its self demands the upmost caution. CFR geopolitical "Nudging" is self serving at best; and Israel does not occupy a warm & fuzzy place in their hearts. Not saying that Israel should not act in any way necessary to protect herself; but it would be wise to smile and tip your hat to the CFR; and bid them adieux!
29. Warned?
Dave ,   Canada   (12.24.11)
Well we all know that if U.S attacks Iran then the Arab around Israel will launch missiles it her. Yet another excuses for the Pals and the Hezbollah. To try to destroy Israel. Make no mistake a launch on Israel will result in the udder destruction of the filthy dogs and if you think Russia will save them think again. Russia is weak and decrepit. They only have nukes and you know they wont launch because Mother Russia would not exists for any longer then 45 min.

Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.24.11)
They have something you don't and it eats at you. They are not the weak and ignorant ones here, you are. Time will prove them right.
