2. Israel could also take care of Nasrallah while they're at it
Steve Benassi ,   Duluth, Minnesota   (04.22.18)
Kill two terrorist birds with one stone, as it were.
Iranian Jew ,   LALA LAND   (04.22.18)
Israel has no choice, btu to measure the mullah threat by poking at it once in awhile. Mullahs wil not attack Israel so far since they know they have no suppoert of their real public. TRUMP has them scared so far. They became too confronting when O'blah blah was in the office. The mullahs know that once their precious oil fields are torched, their fake Jihad Industry is over.
4. Israel on the offensive
Martyn ,   Tel Aviv   (04.22.18)
Time for Israel to be on the offensive after being reactive for too long !
5. Typical, unhinged Alex - anal-ysys!
6. Israel playing on Iranian nerves
lazerbenabba ,   London England   (04.22.18)
The title maybe a little offputting but the analysis is spot on and utterly believable.
When it comes to strategy most of Israel's military thinkers are usually correct and even when not the negative is soon rectified.
7. Iran is in trouble in Syria not only because of Israel
Steve Benassi ,   Minneapolis USA   (04.22.18)
Now that rebellion/ISIS menace is gone Assad will be happy to get rid of Iran.

He is a war criminal, cruel, cold and murderer but he is in no way a religious fanatic like the IRG wants to turn Syria into.
8. Israel is playing with fire. The mullahs don’t have any
Tehraniporou   (04.22.18)
Mandate but the have ruled over iran with strength. They don’t care about the Iranian people they care about “khodis” the irgc is trying to get the control of iran it may use a war to strengthen its internal political position. The iran Iraq war strengthened the regime while there was one million Iranian causalties. That policy is not going to end well without direct line of communications... it’s mememeyahuuuu is getting truly nuts. The irgc is now also having direct command and control over the artesh. The Iranian will not fall for a trap they are not Arabs but they may respond in a coordinated way. They will prepare, wait and strike. You know iran is a long term thinking player...
9. The other problems is that thre isnt anything ressembling
Tehraniporou   (04.22.18)
an Iranian gov, you have elected officials but the power is wielded by the unelected office of th supreme leader and the irgc. The iRGC is seeking the backing of Khamenei s son who wants to be appointed leader and they will d anything to strengthen their position internally while rouhani who is not a moderate has at least a national mandate to some extent. He resist the hardliners who have done everything to hinder his progresses. Actually with a war which will claim Iranian casulaties, there is the risk to revive Iranian nationalism or whatever you want to call it as imperialism and it may backfire on Israel. If Israel wants to be constructive they should land a bullet in larijani and ejei's head. I don't want a war when I will be in tel aviv looking for cute Israelis after seeing clients
10. we are playing with them? Really!

11. The Mullahs have lots more to worry about .........
Koose E Mack ,   Great Satan   (04.23.18)
from their own disgruntled populace. Most Iranians don't want to die because they are being led by Islamo Fascist Dictators.
Let's hope an internal revolution/coup does the job on them first.
12. Pray for regime change in Iran.
Aja ,   Mumbai   (05.28.18)
Hope the re is a peaceful transition in Iran. MAKE IRAN GREAT AGAIN.
13. The Iran Populace should rise up and overthrow the Regime
lal ram ,   Wolverhampton, UK   (07.02.19)
The Iranian populace should rise up and overthrow the Islamo fascist regime. This will save millions of lives. These evil dictators are oppressing and murdering their own people, they live in splendour whilst the populace are literally starving. This evil regime is like cancer claiming innocent lives. Israel should act now, before it's too late.
