“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Israel's 1 year window to attack Iran

As the US pulls out of Iraq, we not only leave a treasure trove of military hardware behind for the taking, we also leave a vacuum in the airspace above Iraq. With no US planes patrolling the skies and Iraq not taking possession of newly purchased F-16's until the end of next year, that leaves a 1 year window through which Israel might fly to destroy Iran's nuclear sites.

The shortest route from Israel to Iran is directly over Iraq and with no air defense capability, who'll stop the Israelis from attacking Iran, assuming anybody wants to stop them that is.

Israel destroying Iran's nuclear weapons program would solve a lot of problems for everybody in the region and the world in general. And letting Israel take the heat is nothing new, nor do they mind taking the heat.

If Achmadinejad ratchets up the anti-Zionist rhetoric in the coming months, watch for Israel take the opportunity we handed her and set Iran's nuclear program back a few decades.

Uh, what Iranian nuclear weapons program, Ed? You are hearing those voices inside your head again, aren't you?

Ed said...

Isaac, your denial of the existance of Iran's weapons program is laughable. Even the loathsome UN acknowledges that Iran is on the verge of having a deliverable weapon.

Do you honestly trust a nation, that denies the existance of homosexuality within its borders and routinely hangs gay people from age 16 and up, with nuclear weapons? Do you naively think Iran's program is strictly peaceful in nature?

If you have evidence that Iran "is on the verge of having a deliverable [nuclear]weapon", all you have to do is produce it, Ed.

Hell, the IAEA might even pay you for that kind of information, seeing as how they haven't been able to come up with any such evidence, themselves.
