Response to shira (Reply #14)

18. I don't believe the result would be "genocide"(it's not like ALL Iranians would be killed)

But we can assume there'd be a large number of innocent civilian casualties, and it's hard to avoid the conclusion that Bibi will nuke Tehran preemptively. He's been baying for Iranian blood for at least two years now-and Ehud Barak, who USED to be for peace, keeps egging him on, partially through his delusional claims that only a handful of people would die.

Also, Grass has pretty much repudiated his own poem by now...so why are we even still talking about it?

The sick part of all of this is, if Grass were SUPPORTING an Israeli missile strike on Iran, everybody who backs such an insane idea would probably call him a hero even if it turned out that he'd ratted out the Frank family.
