"If Iran attacks Israel, would you be willing to commit U.S. troops in support and defense of Israel, or would you wait on approval from the U.N. Security Council?"
Copy and paste the link:
Iran is not going to attack Israel. This is BUSHCO fear talk. Iran does not have the capability to take Israel out. Israel is the sixth largest nuclear power in the world thanks to USA tax dollars. Israel has a mountain of american jet fighters in its arsenal. The world would not support Iran in this endeavor anymore than the world supports the BUSHCO imperialists in the mideast.
madmike--we have no duty to assist. We have supported Israel when they were weak and needed it, but they don't need our help anymore. We have fulfilled any duty we might have had to them, and now we are done. Why continue to waste money on them, or waste our soldiers for them when they are fully capable of defending themselves?
We didn't intervene in 1948, 1967 or 1973 or any other previous time that Israel was attacked without provocation. That's a tough little country. Of course they're outfitted with our armaments now and they have a nuclear response option. I think they're more than capable of handling the situation as is.The real question is, will there still be a building left standing in Iran if they attack Israel.
madmike, Carter was elected in 1976.
Let Israel defend themselves, if they still need us and our money to survive this many years later, then they are doing something wrong.
Absolutely, and with out reservation. I would commit troops to defend Israel, and also order a massive and destructive anhillation of the top Iranian officals, military leaders and terrorist. It is time that we quit pussyfooting around and show the world we are serious, and that we mean business. However I have a feeling if Iran attacked Israel, that the Israeli retaliation would be so swift and sever that there would be much left for the US to mop up.
Tank, I would definitely agree with you about Israel's response. I would not want to be on the receiving end of an Israeli retaliation for an attack like Iran would like to do.
Iraq worked out well? WTF are you smokin?
merrill, you keep forgetting to use the phrase "running dogs of imperialism".
mm - Ford was President 1974-1977. Think Nixon.
