1. Where is the Israeli Navy?
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (02.04.12)
Why doesn't the Israeli Navy sail through the exercises like the US Navy did a few months ago. Is it because BIBI is weak? At least Obama showed some balls and leadership.
2. Just keep on playing games, you dirty
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (02.04.12)
clowns...Suddenly reality will strike you like a flash of lightning...!
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (02.04.12)
Do not ignore it.Slightest indication of attack on Iranian facilities will witness scores of missiles hitting strategic area like Ras Tanura and other loading facilities .No need to worry about the Straits of Hormuz.No ship will have the loading facilities to start with.
4. a repeat peformance
Lilly Topaz ,   Indiana   (02.04.12)
How many times, do we really have to read over and over and over again, and then over again, such statements from every media source, "Iran insists it only seeks reactors for energy and medical research." Like, seriously, I've heard of fillers before, but it's beyond common sense why we have to read this over week after week, month after month, the same old statements. Reporters - give it a break!!!
5. Who barks louder
sipahi ,   Istanbul   (02.04.12)
Israel or Iran? Please go on and make the mistake of exhausting each other. That would ease our job.
6. #1: The last time I looked Israel didn't have ....
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (02.04.12)
11 Aircraft Carriers and their escorts and so on! Amazing, all that might and Iran can still threaten the US and the EU? WOW! Israel's navy is for the defense of our country from terrorists and "other aggressors". Israel has other goodies to deal with the Iranian threat and will do so when the time comes with a vengeance that will shake the Iran like no earthquake has even done! I am no Bibi fan but if I were you I would clean up your own weaknesses in the White House. Netanyahu is a bad decision maker but he is NOT the Commander in Chief but did serve in the IDF. He is responsible to the Security Cabinet and they make the decisions. Unlike Obama, they will not fiddle while Israel burns! Yep. Obama shows a lot of "balls" when he lets Russian and China walk all over the US in the UN! Ha, Ha!
7. @1, you are obviously not too bright
ausraeli ,   Israel   (02.04.12)
or could it be that you live in a movie? No body (smart, or living in reality) underestimates the dangerous Iranian arms build up that has been furiously amassed over the last 15 years. Our defence minister still pushes for first ensuring all diplomatic avenues are exausted before any military moves. Did you ever consider why that is?
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (02.04.12)
Don't worry my friend! You will be safe in Eurobia. Is Mahmood the monkey your comic hero now?
9. FOOLS LIKE YOU............................#8
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (02.04.12)
Have to be told properly,least they become too adventorous.How come you have been predicting things for the last three years or so have not materialised?Feel very nervous,don't you? President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad is a President of Islamic republic of Iran and I don't know him personally.I know the Iranians very well,though.
10. #3 Face The Fact: US & Israel - will destroy Iran
Scott ,   QLD Australia   (02.04.12)
You know it - WE ALL KNOW IT. Yes, there will be significant 'retaliation' ...Iran is not Iraq but dont kid yourself. Once it starts - that's it. One way or another..Its all over for Iran, the US & Israel - in fact the world simply CANNOT AFFORD to leave absolutely any Iranian capability whatsoever. Also, clever boy, you think you're the only one who thought about damage to port facilities??? Rapid deployed Interim measures are ready to go.
11. Long Live Israel...
Alexander Beck ,   Zurich, Switzerland   (02.04.12)
...and down with Ahmadinejad and his other fruit loops!!
12. to no 9
Jennie ,   Israel/US   (02.04.12)
So you, Mahmood, know Iranians very well...And what difference does it make for the subject point? The mad monkey and the ayatolla are holding their people (the good Iranians) hostage for decades...Where have you been and who do you think is going to buy your version of factual events, mahmood ? You can't sell your BS even in Londonstan... The brainless mad monkey is a threat not only to Israel.. He is intimidating the world's geo political balance. End of story...
13. Long Live Israel @ 11
Maureen   (02.04.12)
I'm with you on that one Alexander Beck of Z├╝rich Switzerland... lololol... cool, very cool!
14. Iran is playing with fire....
Adar ,   London   (02.04.12)
It will only burn its own people, it's the time for Persians to uprise Kurds are ready and will always support Israel
15. Let's think...
Andrew ,   USA   (02.05.12)
Naval exercise? Or military buildup in case of an attack?
16. #9 MAHMOOD
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (02.05.12)
You will have to explain why Pres. ahmadinejad found it nececessary to shoot his own people in the streets for protesting their own government Islamic Republic my foot, it's just another Islamo/Facist Dictatorship run the religious fanatics
