In a growing rift with the US, Netanyuhu is demanding all nations set a red line on Iran and attack Iran Immediately. A move that most Israelis oppose, not to mention new polls suggesting most American voters disagree too. As for the Brits, they sent a delegation to Netanyuhu that they would not support a Israeli unilateral attack on Iran.

http://news.yahoo.com/u-no-block-israel-iran-netanyahu-161058318.html

As Obama flat out refuses to meet with Netanyuhu even though Hillary as Sec of State has already told Netanyuhu no.

So the question is, will Netanyuhu attack Iran unilaterly anyway?

And if so what should the US stance be? And what will be the most pragmatic stance of Iran be? An Iran who would have the legitimare right to counter attack Israel with a barrage of very accurate missiles a second after the first Israeli bomb falls, but if Iran then attacks other than Israeli interests would the USA be forced to support Israel?

In terms of the last question, if Iran takes the former stance, its likely to be the end of Israel because of over reaching, in the latter case its likely to become a mid-east bloodbath no one can win.

Israel has a hell of a lot more to lose than the US does.

Iran will not wait to counter-attack Israel. They'll make something up, or attack on the flimsiest of excuses.

If Romney can't win on his own, Obama will hand it to him by refusing to rein in Iran. The timing is perfect for Netanyahu.

Netanyahu has argued that setting a clear boundary for Iran's uranium enrichment activities and imposing stronger economic sanctions could deter Tehran from developing nuclear weapons and mitigate the need for military action.
From your link. Where did he say otherwise in the article you quote?

Israel attacks Iran
Iran vaunted missiles are ineffective (for one reason or another)
Hezbollah and Hamas go after Israel in retaliation.
Israel cleans out the rat trap finally with full justification.

Iran blusters closing the straights.
Others call the bluff.

Iran folds or attempts a blockade - the blockade drives up the price of oil for a little while and destroys the Iranian coastal ports if any weapons are launched against shipping.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Excuse me sixone, where does this stuff come from, we are talking about Israel pre-emptively and unilaterally attacking Iran, and Israel making up the flimsiest excuses beforehand.

If Israel does so to Iran, Iran will not have to invent any phony excuses to counter attack Israel as it would become Iran's legitimate right to counterattack Israel.

What you are saying sixone in "Iran will not wait to counter-attack Israel. They'll make something up, or attack on the flimsiest of excuses." is the equivalent of saying when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941 gave the USA no right to attack Japan.

From the article-

Word that the two men would not meet came on the same day that Netanyahu said the United States had forfeited its moral right to stop Israel from taking action against Iran's nuclear program because it had refused to be firm with Tehran itself.
He's not trying to interfere with the election, is he? Couldn't be!

Perhaps in attacking Iran, he'd give up his "moral right" to run & hide under Uncle Sam's coattails afterwards, the same way his predecessors have done all along.

When did Israel run and hide under US coattails.
In every incident, the Arabs have come running for protection.

If Israel does so to Iran, Iran will not have to invent any phony excuses to counter attack Israel as it would become Iran's legitimate right to counterattack Israel. -- Iran does not have the ability to counter attack......if they did there would be nothing left of iran for them to counter attack....

What you are saying sixone in "Iran will not wait to counter-attack Israel. They'll make something up, or attack on the flimsiest of excuses." is the equivalent of saying when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941 gave the USA no right to attack Japan. -- I agree with sixone Iran is dying to get their butts whipped.....
I see it`s mushroom season again -- the psychedelic kind..

Utterly dishonest. How many UN resolutions has the US vetoed on Israel's behalf?
Now your changing the subject to UN resolutions.....

How many UN resolutions have there been against the Arabs and others who would dare do harm to Israel??? can we say there is an unfounded bias against Israel in the UN??

If you were honest you would know that once Arab ass gets whipped they really do come running to whoever will listen be it the Un or even the United states seeking comfort......

The resolutions are a bunch of political BS created by the Arabs and the old USSR block.

The Arabs ignore them, they were used as a political statement against Israel because she refused to roll over for the Arabs.

UN resolutions have no serious teeth unless the big boys want them to.
What are they going to do; invade Israel over the Palestinians who continually attack Israel but are never scolded. :p

Every time the Arabs have challenged Israel; Israel has slapped them down and the Arabs go running to the UN for protection;
when has Israel ever asked the UN for protection - the UN has demonstrated bias against Israel.

Any idea why that would be? :D
It's a common theme on this board.
Criticism of Israel = hatred of Jews
That's why we can't have honest discussion here about the subject
If I were not able to read other boards and see American Jews and Israelis who do the same as LL, I would probably start to believe the old stereotypes about Jews
