1. "brainless leaders." ... we all agree on that.
WikiMiki   (08.14.12)
2. Trash the Wimps & Ayatollahs !
Frank Baum   (08.14.12)
Israel has survived successfully against overwhelming odds for the past 50 years thanks to quick & decisive action against any threats by the leadership. However, recently a plague of wimps & wussies have descended on the scene such as Meir Dagan, Mofaz, Shelly, Farkash etc, who like to chatter & emit a lot of hot-air, together with the all powerful wussie Obama & his pet Panetta. This cowardly cacophony has slowed and hampered the awesome Israeli war-machine and almost brought it to a grinding halt. Netanyahu & Barak should throw the wussies in the trash-can and take action immediately and decisively, as was done in the past so that Israel wont be overwhelmed by its enemies.
3. Jay Carney = BULLSHIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (08.14.12)
4. Who was it that said "pride goes before a fall"?
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (08.14.12)
Apparently, they don't know that one in Iran.
5. Stop talking and just Do IT!
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (08.14.12)
Why all the Israeli warnings and noise? Until obama is out of office, he will be the major reason for any delays as he doesn't want to become 'involved' in either helping Israel or facing his fellow muslims in battle. However, should Romney win and the odds that he will are looking good, everything changes and we Americans too will finally have real "hope and change'. Israel isn't the only one threatened by Iran, US military ships, installations bases in that area are as well. ( not to mention many other nations that a missile with a larger range can reach. )
6. Iran has just1 superlative: Its the most overrated foe ever!
Neo ,   EU   (08.14.12)
7. This wont be a "stupid" attack.
rebecca ,   Modiin   (08.14.12)
If we are forced to attack, it will be very cleverly done. In, hit only the most nb targets, and get out fast. Unlike others who go in, mess with the minor stuff that is not going affect the world, and hangs around for years getting deeper into the quagmire. When we go in, we go in for our own safety, quick and decisive.
8. "Iran's might and will"
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (08.14.12)
Oh, we were treated to eight years of precisely that in the Iran-Iraq War. Let's see -- one million dead Iranians, in eight years of battling a vastly inferior Iraq. Towards the end of that rather humiliating draw, Iran's grand "battle plan" consisted of hurling twelve year old boys in the path of oncoming Iraqi tanks, and proclaiming those boys "martyrs." That won't work against Israel. Besides, Iran's computer networks have been seriously compromised by Israeli genius. Including Iran's military command and control. They cannot risk firing a ballistic missile at Israel because (a) they cannot be sure that the missile will land in Jordan (likely) and (b) they cannot be sure that the computer worms and viruses that have invaded their computer networks won't turn that missile around and drop it on Teheran. Iran's stock in trade has been really nothing more than vile rhetoric. Did they think that Israel would ignore their threats of destruction forever? Well, Israel won't. And Iran is hardly up to the task of tackling Israel. Let's see -- computer systems amuck, Israeli ULF waves generating three earthquakes off the same epicenter (something which has the seismologists scratching their heads) ... and that's not the end of it. Israel has much, much more -- which accounts for the chest-thumping false bravado of the Islamofascist regime in Teheran. Hence all the latest silly nonsense out of Teheran. Hey -- sure do hope that nothing happens to those multi-million dollar supertankers anchored off Bandar Abbas storaging multi-million dollar cargoes of petroleum. Gee, wouldn't it be a TERRIBLE shame if something were to happen to them ..... Iran has two choices: (i) they can back off their nuclear program and dismantle their existing facilities, or (ii) they can face the consequences. Computer networks. ULF waves. Please do keep in mind that Israel tried the most civilized ways first.
9. we will wait
Trevor ,   Modiin, Israel   (08.14.12)
Ok so we wont respond, we will wait for you to complete building the nuke and then, we still wont respond....because well, we will fear your strength, and so we will never respond.... Um Iran, you have to understand....any response to an attack against you, will be better than being attacked by a prepare yourselves. And Hezbollah, listen very carefully to the IDF warning ... it might not be a good idea to be Irans bitch - and Hassan Nasralla, please keep a seat in ur underground cave for the Ayatollahs and Achmadinijad - so you can all then hide away and pretend victory....
10. LOL! Bibi's Head Must Be About To Explode
World Citizen ,   the world   (08.14.12)
Between these idiotic announcements by some Iranian with a death wish and Bibi's idiotic declarations of doom maybe some voices of reason will prevail. Hopefully the measured decisions of your military leaders will overrule the political demagoguery of Bibi & Co,
11. Israel wont attack
Daniel ,   Tel-Aviv, Israel   (08.14.12)
Its all smoke and mirrors to make sure the Iranians are subject to crippling sanctions. ie its a form of Israbluff.
12. The Mahdi is not ready yet,neither is the Messiah
Roland Seener ,   London England   (08.14.12)
13. social crisis
Matt   (08.14.12)
We can't shoot them, dope them up with hammer and torture them in Evin.
Jewishness ,   AMERICA THE BEAUTIUL   (08.14.12)
THE ARABS NEVER SAID A WORD ABOUT THE LAST 2 ILLEGAL REACTORS ISRAEL why worry about the third...IT'S THE same OLDE bleating, same bragging, same threats...and so what? Iran will not go to war and have it's country/infra-structure decimated to protect mamoud's ILLegal nuke doings. REMEMBER HUSSEIN said nothing afterwards, ...Assad clammed up also, both said nothing after the attacks on their nuke plants, as well... these nuke bandits are all PROVEN to be full of hot air... they know they have illegal enterprises and they shut up about them AFTER they are LEVELED and exposed to the world !
15. Iranian Miscalculation
Shep ,   Memphis   (08.14.12)
Attacking Iran my provoke some blows to the homeland, but Israeli leaders are looking at the escalation that would follow a nuclear Iran with her proxies feeling invulnerable because of an Iranian nuclear umbrella. It would be illogical for Israel NOT to execute a preemptive strike. The best defense is a good offense.
16. White noise, Our blood
MelekhShaul ,   Jerusalem   (08.14.12)
Don't you love those warmongers from afar, in Coney Island and other distant places in the USA, distant in reality as well as in location. Carry on with your white noise calling for war. It won't be your blood that gets spilled, it'll be ours. Not your body bags, and decimated neighbourhoods - ours. Do us all a favour and switch off your noises.
17. Iran : Diplomacy is "stillborn" , just like
DT ,   TA Israel   (08.14.12)
the world leaders who are still advocating it
18. Save the world!
John Prophet   (08.14.12)
Save lives, save the world, plow two dozen tomahawk cruise missiles into Iranian leadership. Decapitate the beast!
19. #3.Rottenloser, obviously you're an expert on that.
Persian CAT   (08.14.12)
20. Since Israel has used almost every animal on earth (joke)...
Devorah   (08.14.12)
maybe Mossad and/or Tzahal should try the WW2 Bat Bomb. Look it up.
21. #8 Sarah B delusional as per usual
Ivor Evenbiggergun   (08.14.12)
Iran has more combat veterans than Israel has people, the ratio to win will be 1 Israeli death per 12.5 Iranian deaths. The Iranian people have shown that they are willing to take 1 moillion casualties to defend Iran. That is one 6th of the entire population of Israel. Incidentally, Saddam Hussein ws getting the best arms that money could buy whilst Iran was subject to an arms embargo. A clearly delusional post by someone appearing to be increasingly bi polar as the little wolrd constructed by herself starts to come apart at the scenes.
22. #21. Ivor: Buy a map and stay quiet
Tom W ,   USA   (08.14.12)
Your beloved Iranian "combat veterans" cannot get to the borders of Israel unless they have the means to get across a number of Arab countries. With full armor, logistics and supplies? How? The war - if ever happens - would be the war of high-tech attacks from afar. Your cherished "combat veterans" - who are senior citizens by now - have very little value in modern warfare. Reminder for you: Saddam's "best arms that money could buy" - was obliterated in about a few weeks. Your Muslim bravado holds no water: you never won any war with the West.
23. 21 - tell us something we dont know.
Dave   (08.14.12)
yes she is insane but quite entertaining you must admit.
24. Well Spoken 21... Well Spoken!
World Citizen ,   the world   (08.14.12)
Can't you see her now. Deep in her fortified bunker in NYC. Moving around her little cut-out tanks, planes, ships, soldiers and flags on a huge map of the Middle East. If only Bibi would put her in command of the vast Israeli military power that can be brought to bear. Israel's problems would be solved within a week.
25. #21 Ivor
James ,   Tel Aviv   (08.14.12)
You seem to be no less delusional than Sarah. Those combat veterans you mention are in their late 40' or early 50'... and they have to cross three international borders to get to Israel... We are not against the Iranian people, we are against the Mullahs that rule Iran.. I doubt very much that many Iranians will sacrifice their lives for thos Mullahs. If and when the war starts, the Green Movement will rise again.
26. #25 James
Ivor Evenbiggergun   (08.14.12)
That is exactly what Saddam Huseein thought when he attempted an invasion of Iran. He thought that the whole rotten system would collapse from within.
27. Iran
Rex ,   USA   (08.14.12)
Iran & Iraq were like fleas fighting over the dog they were on. When the Isrealis show up with a can of raid it will be put into perspective.
28. Iran has something right for a change
Aryeh ,   Brooklyn, USA   (08.14.12)
They're right, we won't start a stupid war. If Israel decides to attack it will start a very calculated war.
29. #14 -Insightful, honest, it's the REALITY!
FREEDOM RANGER ,   D.C., USA   (08.14.12)
Iran won't risk getting embalmed, napalmed, disarmed and sent back from the present 1970's to the early 1750's...without a guaranteed Israeli failed attempt to crush the KAKAMEINI and his mullets, along with his boytoy, Mamoud Adminajackass. Wanna take the chance of an Israeli (even) partial failure...So far, Israel doesn't do PARTIALLY fought WARS.
30. Stupid attack
Enoch ,   Toronto   (08.14.12)
You convinced us. Israel will not mount a stupid attack. Is it OK with you if Israel mounts a smart attack?
