Israel Draws Up Plans To Attack Iran

A U.S. War Against Iran Appears to Be A Certainty

The issue now only seems to be when and how much death and chaos it will cause.

A U.S. War with Iran will make the war against Iraq look like a cake and ice cream party.

Israel is reportedly planning to attack Iranian nuclear sites, according to sources inside the Israeli government. These attacks may include the use of tactical bunker penetrating nuclear bombs. Israel has reportedly denied the plans to attack, however, according to the reports, Israel did not completely deny these plans, and in fact suggested (in a way admitted) that the reports were correct all along. It appeared that Israel really wanted to side step the issue, not fully deny it. A military option is still on the table. Meanwhile, Iran has promised strong retaliation if attacked.

Such an attack would likely bring devastating and upredictable consequences that neither Israel or the U.S. will have any control over. This appears to be Israel's way to force the U.S. into a military confrontation with Iran. Israels position is- If the U.S. won't attack Iran, then we will.

Once again, Israel is controlling U.S. foreign policy and military policy. Israel wants to drag the U.S. into another desastrous war that we don't need. The Capital city of the United States may as well be Jerusalem, because Israeli politicians are making decisions that will impact Americans and will determine our future. No other country in the World has this kind of influence & control over the United States. And why does this situation exist? Because the Jewish economic and religious elite have tremendous influence in the U.S. The Jewish lobby is extremely powerful. It seems as if the U.S. has handed over it's sovereignty to Israel.

To make matters worse, no American politician is strong enough or courageous enough to even speak out about Israels attempt to control U.S. policy. Members of Congress (in both Parties) are too afraid to say anything that might be seen as criticizing or even questioning Israel. Anyone who dares to say something is automatically called anti-semitic.

This is why the Founding Fathers of this nation did not want the U.S. to be trapped in foreign entanglements. The U.S. basically came with an instruction manual-- the U.S. Constitution and the writings left behind by the Founding Fathers. If the instructions in the manual are followed properly....the nation runs smoothly. If the instructions are ignored it leads to disorder and disfunction.

Since the Congress is so afraid of protecting us from another disaster, the American people must do it. The American people must not allow Israel or the Bush Administration to go ahead with their plans for war against Iran. We can't allow Israel to drag us into another war- a war that we cannot afford to fight economically, politically, or militarily. The U.S. military is already stretched to the limit with Iraq and other hot spots. Even if the U.S. was not occupying Iraq, a war with Iran would still not be worth it.

There are no good consequences that will come from a war with Iran. A war with Iran would disrupt the Worlds economy, raising the price of fuel by unimaginable amounts (which would raise the cost of just about everything else that we buy). Furthermore, Iran would likely retaliate in a big big way by hitting Israeli cities with medium-long range missiles, warplanes and terror attacks. Iran could also hit Iraq, and/or Saudi Arabia where U.S. troops are based. China and Russia could also be drawn into a confrontation with the U.S. Both China and Russia have a lot at stake in Iran. China and/or Russia would likely send Navy ships into the Persian Gulf to assist Iran.

This war would not be worth the consequences that it would bring. This is especially true since most analysts & experts believe that bombing Iranian nuclear research sites would not work. The sites are built in such a way that bombing them would have very limited impact.

There is not even clear proof that Iran is seeking to build nuclear weapons. They claim that they want peaceful nuclear energy- something that every country has a right to pursue. Let's hold the Iranians to their word by making them come to the UN to publicly declare that they are not seeking a bomb and have them sign an agreement and pledge that they are not seeking a weapon. This way, if they do develop a nuclear weapon, the world will see them as liars.

But right now, there is no proof of a nuclear weapons program. Iran has not violated the Non Proliferation Treaty or any other treaty. Seeking nuclear energy is within their rights under international law. What we are seeing is a double standard for Iran.

Even if Iran did acquire a nuclear weapon, we are much better off establishing a deterrence policy, like we had with the Soviets, than we are going to war. Iran will not launch a first strike, knowing that it would mean the end of its government and many of its matter how much they rant about wiping Israel off the map.

Israel should concentrate on building good missile defense systems, and other defensive capabilities, weakening the Iranian threat. These missile defense systems are already being developed and built in Israel, with the help of the U.S.

Peace groups, concerned political leaders and diplomats, and most importantly.... the American people, must make sure that a war with Iran does not happen.

Why we are so stuppied!

The United States has a terrorism problem ONLY because it is so closely allied with Israel,
not the other way around. US is the only country that its Foreign policy for Middle east is shaped for the interest of a FOREIGN nation and not what is good for U.S. Learn about THE ISRAEL LOBBY AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY?

According to Philip Zelikow, a member of the
President’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (2001‐2003), executive director of the 9/11 Commission, and now Counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the “real threat” from Iraq was not a threat to the United States.139 The
“unstated threat” was the “threat against Israel,” Zelikow told a University of Virginia audience in September 2002, noting further that “the American
government doesn’t want to lean too hard on it rhetorically, because it is not a popular sell.”

Conect the dots! .....
