3. Would be the straw that broke the camels back and plunge the world into a economic depression
that likes of which we can't even imagine.

The world, realizing the cause of the economic meltdown, would hold israel accountable in one fashion or the other and of course israel's bitch, the USA, will be included in this worldwide ostracization.

In the end, the jewish state of israel as it exists now would not survive.

4. World War III, which according to Nobel Prize winning economist
Paul Krugman would end unemployment and right the world's economy...

What saved the economy, and the New Deal, was the enormous public works project known as World War II, which finally provided a fiscal stimulus adequate to the economys needs.

5. Iran would certainly retaliate, and no doubt draw other countries into the fray.
I seriously think that there is a good chance that a WW111 could come out of something like an attack on Iran.

7. China and Russia would get in the act of retaliation.
WWIII would be short, ending with several glass parking lots in this country.

young and very interested in democracy and capitalism. Any strike would rile those who are now fans of our lifestyle. It is foolish to even speak of an attack when another Arab Spring-like is on the horizon.

Their leader,Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is not really in charge. It is the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who holds the reins on that government.Attacking a country ruled by a religious leader will ignite a holy war of religious fervor.

It would also be financially ridiculous for us and who is going to want to defend a foolish move again in the middle east? It would weaken a keystone of the middle east whose theocracy is if nothing else stable which in that region it is a good thing. If anyone even thinks of not using a steady hand and diplomacy is out of their mind.

You asked for my opinion.You got it...Toyota...lala..
:wtf: :rant:
