Would Israel be justified in launching a pre-emptive military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities?

Poll,
You are right. Israel is picking on poor Iran for no reason at all. They are just trying to provoke a fight with a defense less little country who happens to be keep threatening to wipe them off the face of the earth.

Also, those of you who voted yes, do you not remember Iraq? Don't be fooled again! Iran is not building nuclear weapons.

Pollutedmd,
Last i checked israel has not threatened to annihilate anyone.

Israel has also been killing Iranian scientists which they have no right to do. Israel should probably be focusing on ending their 40 year occupation and settlements in the West Bank, instead pushing to go to war with Iran, which Israel's own intelligence says is not an existential threat to them.

Israel on the other hand has NOT signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Israel hid their nuclear weapons program from the world and still will not admit they have nuclear weapons.

We know about it because one of the scientist working there blew the whistle...only to be kidnapped from Italy and imprisoned for 18 years, spending 11 years in solitary confinement,

and now that he's out, he cannot leave Israel, talk to non-Israeli citizens, use the Internet, telephones, and has been arrested multiple times after his release in 2004.


02/10/12 6:39 pm

I promise you that Israel will act.


02/10/12 6:38 pm

Pakistan is much more of a threat.


02/10/12 6:37 pm

The only threat would come if there is a preemptive strike against Iran. Then the middle eastern countries that DO have the money and power will create great instability there and here.


02/10/12 6:36 pm

What if the other country truly wants to kill you and doesn't want peace? When and how do you propose to defend yourself???

US intelligence has said Iran is not making a bomb. The IAEA is at Iran's nuclear sites. Iran has had a nuclear program for decades now and has followed IAEA rules. Iran has signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, and they are allowed to pursue nuclear energy and enrich uranium under this.

One wrong move and entire countries can be erased from the face of the earth. Unless every country can find peace within itself and maintain it, humanity will erase itself.

I was stationed near Iran for seven years and trust me they have the money, connections and desire.

I look at it like this: if they don't, the animals in the middle east will start WW3. If they do, they start WW3. I know that this sounds pretty pessimistic, but the way all of the world has developed their military weapons, we are constantly teetering on the brink of war with everyone...

I voted yes bur once they have the technology wouldn't an attack just forestall, not prevent, a nuclear attack?


02/10/12 6:30 pm

Iran would and may come after us. It's in our best interest to see them taken out.

honored
02/10/12 6:30 pm

Even if Iran has the power that you people say it has, (which it doesn't) why would we kick that hornets nest? They are using physiological warfare, so we are going to bomb and invade them for that? I was almost mugged by two teenagers a few years ago in a not so great neighborhood that I was in

Yes, they would be completely justified. Speaking as a Jew who was a block away from a suicide bombing, I still have shrapnel in my leg. Fuck those bastards.

I say take Iran out.

If you support Iran you support flogging LGBTs to death, the oppression of woman and religious persecution.

It's incredible how quick some people are to throw everything that makes them decent human beings out the window for the sake of appearing internationally tolerant.

Iran has no money?
They are not a threat to who? Florida?
Seems like when Russia was going to put nukes in Cuba, we sang a different tune. JFK was a democrat too.

Person1: i am going to kill you person2: lets be friends. #1:takes out gun. #2: you dont need that we can be friends. #1: shoots #2.
You cannot reason with someone who wants you dead. Why is this concept so hard to comprehend?


02/10/12 6:16 pm

Iran isn't a threat. They don't have the money, means, or military power. It is psychological terror only.

@Malekithe, I totally agree. This is a perfect indicator of how the majority of Democrats want to destroy freedom.

I cannot believe people voted no.
If you neighbors continually threaten to kill you and your family and the police (UN) just ignore them. How many weapons are you going to let them stockpile before you take action


02/10/12 5:57 pm

I have a feeling if they did, There'd be nothing there and if nothing, how'd that fare for Israel then? We'd have to drop our support. It'd be a bad set of circumstances for the US

Snapper it only works if neither side wants to be destroyed. Iran has no such qualms about Israel. It would not work. There is no off switch to nuclear escalation

What? People actually voted yes?!? Because the US pre-emptive strike in the middle east was so exemplary of success and good behavior... sheesh. Imagine a world without religion. Oh wait, that leads to peace and good will; we wouldn't want that!

If the military deems it to be a good idea then it will happen. If not, it won't. As for right now, I wage war against the evil forces, but no physical violence will currently emanate from me.
