    Be careful how you address this, they are waiting in the wings to call you an Anti Semite Bigot.
    Probably the best thing to do is just make believe it isn't happening and keep "Bashing America".

    GO TO THE DRUDGE REPORT, YOU HEAR IT THERE FIRST, THEN THE ELITE MEDIA COPY'S IT.

    Guerrillas who captured Israeli soldiers are trying to 'transfer them to Iran'...
    Israeli warplanes attack Lebanese army air base near Syria...
    Attack Beirut airport...
    Sea and air blockade...
    Hizbollah guerrillas fire at least 70 rockets onto Israel...
    Bush Backs Israel's Right to Self Defense ...
    Russia condemns attacks...
    Greece says Israel using 'excessive' and 'pointless' force...


    WORLD HOLD ON

    Probably should have said you copy and pasted that from Drudge :)

    Regardless, the middle east is gonna totally blow up one of these days. Sooner rather than later, it appears.

    Your right (Drudge) I'll edit it right now.

    The Middle East is the "Land Of Savages" Bush is trying to civilize them.

    where have i heard this story before? Russia and the Arabs vs Israel, and by extension, the US and EU.

    Oh wait, I know! Its the Bible!!!!

    hold on for an interesting 7 year stretch. But the Lord in his love is inviting you to be with Him instead. Read more about Bible prophesy and be comforted that its all part of the plan.

    These sorts of things seem to flare up every 5 years or so. Then, about every 20 years or so, they flare up into an all out war where Israel smacks around a couple other countries then things return to normal.

    As I mentioned in another thread, I wouldn't be surprised to see an attack on Iran's nuclear infrastructure in the near future.

    Iran has a navy and the abilty to mine the straight of hormuz to block oil shipments. I would consider that iran does have some leverage in this issue.
    Looking at it from counter attack position.

    You raise some very interesting points and a perspective I admit I hadn't considered. You asked me if I thought they would block the Strait and I responded no. That would be a very dangerous strategy which would probably lead to direct involvement on the part of the United States Navy, which would lead to the annihilation of whatever canoes and rowboats Iran had engaging in the blockade.

    However it should be noted that it is always difficult to predict the actions of a madman like Ahmadnejad.

    I was reading a board on this subject.
    A theory was isreal would nuke the iranian program from a sub, and of course iran would counter attack in the straight of hormuz and directly at isreal.
    If the U.S. did it, iran would shut down the straight of hormuz, and iran has more then row boats and canoes, apparently they have a formidable navy that will not easily cave and will definately mine the straight.
    It would put the world oil supply in a precarious predicament.
    I was watching foxnews and the question of how to improve the the us stock market came up, and one person said nuke iran, without thinking about ramifacations of the straight being mined.

    I am expecting something much more in line with their attack in the early 80's of the Osirik reactor in Iraq. Send in some F-16's, not nukes. I don't think Israel would use nukes unless there was an imminent threat of the complete collapse of their nation.
    I think Iran's Navy is like Iraq's old "Elite Republican Guard". Very formidable in training exercise. Very easily defeated by the United States when it counts.
    Or perhaps even a quagmire :D
    Was it Ann Coulter that said that...? All kidding aside, I can't think of set of circumstances whatsoever whereby a situation is made better by the usage of nuclear weapons.

    Everything I have read on this issue which includes commentary from people with backgrounds in military op's, have pretty much said it will be a counter attack on the straight from a navy, to landbased mortar and missile firings and sabotage at oil ports. It will not be easy and the oil will not be transported due to sinkage.

    Whether taking out irans nuke operations with nuke bunker bombs or conventional bombs, iran will counter attack on the straight of hormuz. With a variety of means. Does not mean I'm against said operation, just looking at the angles.

    QuiGon, for a change, I agree with most of what you're saying.

    I don't think Ahmadinejad would shut down the straits of Hormoz, for both economic and political reasons. It would mean real war with the US. It would also mean no oil revenue for Iraq.

    However, my conclusions assume that Ahmadinejad is sane, and that, if insane, his orders would not be followed.

    The US Navy would have no trouble with the Iranian Navy, I am sure.

    Bach up the division carriers and load our kids up now. If we get caught in this, there'll be hell to pay for our troops there. We should draw back now and watch the re-configuration from North America. America is not mentioned in the bible, so we don't have to play, right?
