Article on Russia Today asking if the attack on Israeli tourist will give Israel a reason to attack Iran.

http://www.rt.com/news/israle-iran-tourist-attack-pretext-529/

The middle east has always been at war with "someone". It seems that the region can not live in peace with its neighbors, for some reason or another.

Over the past few years tensions have been on the uptick because of Irans nuclear program.

I feel that Israel (and the rest of the world) is being pushed into a corner. Sooner or later "something" will have to give.

I also believe the US and Israel are waiting for a good excuse to attack Iran.

Israel has a policy of retaliating on every terrorist attack so this is interesting that they named Iran as the source of this attack so quickly. I heard there was some pretty compelling evidence but they always say that.

This could be the igniting source that we've all dreaded.

I am beginning to believe that Israel is not capable to succeed in a attack on Iran. They certainly did not do so well the last time they fought in Lebanon. I also think the strategy is to eventually accept that Iran has nuclear weapons. Meanwhile they will bluff and bluster that any day now ol' Iran is gonna git it.

The only retaliation likely to happen is targeted assassinations.

I'm a little confused here, if a Swede carrying a Michigan drivers liscense, blows up tourist buses in Bulgaria, just who is Israel going to attack?

My guess would be Michigan, they don't have an army, airforce, or navy...OR nukes!

Israel would be stupid to start a war with Iran, they have a reasonable air force but a very strong army and anti aircraft systems. It's would be a bloodbath, the US aren't that stupid either, the public got to thinking Iraq was unacceptable losses, you'd need a few hundred thousand ground troops minimum (iran has 545k troops and 1.5mill reserves) and you'd be looking at losses of 20%+

LOL, I'm fairly sure they have all the above (less the Navy but supplant that with Coast Guard). Including about 10K peed off militia.

what most people dont realize is that despite the fact the us and isreal are itching to get into a fight with iran, bombing their nuclear program is NOT a realistic option, even for the united states.

100% of all of iran's weapons grade urnaium and 99% of all of irans moderately enriched uranium is located smack dab in the middle of downtown tehran at the tehran nuclear research center. The only way to keep iran from using this material to quickly build a few nukes would be to physically distribute the stuff over a wide geographic area, aka bomb the hell out of it. The problem with this is nearly ALL of their enriched uranium is in the form of spent nuclear fuel. bombing it in such a way would essentially be purposefully causing a disaster on par with chernobyl, but not in the middle of nowhere as in Ukraine, but rather in the middle of a densely populated urban area with a population on par with new york city. it would probably be better to nuke tehran than it would be to deal with the radiological aftermath. were talking about killing 10 million people here.

As much as our government and politicians lie to us I wouldn't doubt for a second the U.S. is starting crap with Iran and lying to the rest of the world about it and Israel is clueless about it. I could just see some of our a**holes over there prodding Iran and then running to Israel and saying "See what they're doing now?"

I don't trust anything the U.S. government has their hands in. They never have the greater-good in mind.

I don't trust our government either but most of our intel on the Middle east is from israel just like the intel we got on Iraq.

Don't forget the Michigan DL had his home address as Baton Rouge Louisiana so they must be included in the counter punch.

Yeah, I understand that. I still think the U.S. could be putting things in motion that would appear to be different than they really are to people on the outside looking in.
