1. "We cannot allow Iran to have Nuclear weapons!" Certainly interesting that Israel has Nukes and

 

should not have. I hope Pakistan will follow thru with there backing of Iran, and I also hope that China and Russia stand up for Iran. I for one am very tired of both the US and Israel dictating the rules in the ME.

3. Tiny, small. This is a way bigger deal than that.

This is not another Iraq war. This is the end of a whole way of being if it is earnestly pursued. It will not be decided on Fox like the 2000 elections.

4. Except that there is no empirical evidence for Iran's developing those weapons.

The US is still pissed that the Iranians overthrew the Shah.

6. Does FOX do anything besides fear monger"


Fear of the black man

Fear of the gay man

Fear of the northern man

Fear of the city man

Fear of the east coast man

Fear of the educated man

Fear of immigrant man

Fear OF THE WOMAN

And now fear of Iran.

In watching that video, i personally was waiting for someone to mention a "mushroom cloud." If Meghan Kelly and FOX news want to spew war propaganda then lets bring our troops home and let her march into battle!

9. And precisely . . .

Yes, it is a rhetorical question.

11. Panetta & Pentagon admits their "bunker buster" bombs cannot penetrate Iran's underground facilitie



Haaretz: The futility of attacking Iran By Reuven Pedatzur

Published 03:42 09.02.12

Senior American defense officials told The Wall Street Journal that even the largest bomb in the hands of the American military, the one known as the "bunker buster", is not able to penetrate and destroy those of the Iranian nuclear installations that are buried deep underground. Panetta admitted that the Americans do not possess the means of penetrating facilities like the underground uranium enrichment plant at Fordow, near Qum. This is where the problem lies. Some of the nuclear facilities in Iran, especially those that are critical for the continuation of its nuclear program activities, are located deep below the surface and protected by reinforced concrete fortifications. This makes the task of destroying them almost completely impossible. In Israel, those involved have ignored the limitations of these bombs that are supposed to annihilate the nuclear sites; but ignoring this will not solve the operational problem that those planning the attack will have to deal with.

If Israeli Air Force planes succeed in reaching the targets and in dropping bombs on them with great accuracy, but they are nevertheless not destroyed, this would pose questions about the justification of a military operation. If those critical sites are not annihilated, the Iranian nuclear program will be postponed only for a relatively short period.
