    Is Israel trying to drag us into Iranian conflict?
    With friends like these who needs enemies?

      Israel is a puppet of the US.

      If anything, the US is using Israel to start a war.

    Couldn't any conflict with Iran possibly, just possibly have something to do with a belicose Iran which is rattling its sabres, threatening to sink our aircraft carrier and close the Strait of Hormuz, not to mention its threat to annihilate all Isrealis, men, women, and children? (Then let's stop briefly to imagine what Iran's ambitions in regard to an unstable Iraq might be, and what its theocratic ambitions might be throughout the Arab world, and how their atomic energy program might fit into all that.. A possible caliphate, such as Saddam Hussein wanted?)

      Well said. It is probably the most vile dictatorship on the planet today, governed by Islamic extremists whose only goal is the extermination of "non-Muslims." I understand why people in the West are sick of wars and attacks on nations in the East -but the alternative is wait for the inevitable cowardly attack, of the terrorist, chemical or possibly nuclear variety.

    I think it fits into what Iran wants to do as far as a sovereign nation. What business does Israel have killing engineers,spreading computer viruses and bombing Iranian facilities. Especially Israel, with their ever expanding settlements on Palestinian land. If they have a problem with Iran let them deal with it. Why are the pulling a false flag and making it look like the US is causing problems. Just remember No WMD's were found in Iraq. OOPS   Does this have more to do with the agreement that China and Iran have to abandon the US dollar as the reserve currency for oil purchases? Really dig into what may be going on world wide because if you are only getting you info from US media you are flat out getting lied to. Certainly not the info source I'd want to back another long war.

    Israel arguably was a big factor in drawing the US into Iraq, and were the biggest beneficiaries, as they would be, if they get the US to go to war with Iran. And they are trying. The US just warned them not to attack Iran. Any attack will mean gas, as from five to ten dollars a gallon US, and probably cause a world depression.

    Despite all the hype about Iran's threats, Israel are the ones beating the war drums, suprise, surprise. If they get their way they'll drag us into another completely unnecessary war, only this time with Iran, and they will not roll over easily. We'll be biting off more than we can chew. Still, what does Israel care, they're not sacrificing anything.

    I think I can say with confidence, We don't need this. America can't even get it's own act together.

      Neither can the UK, but unfortunately, Cameron is chomping at the bit to go to war with Iran, he's true to his colours.

    I sincerely wish we had been smart enough to make California into the State of Israel instead of what we did.  Sure, it would have upset some of them and a lot of displaced Californians, but think how much better off the world would be today.  Palestine wold have a thriving tourist industry for Jews and others who wanted to visit Israel, we would have missed a few wars, we'd stil get Hollywood movies..

    Oh, well..

      I think the Brits are mostly to blame for what happened circa. 1948. Don't get me wrong, the Jewish people deserved a safe haven and a life free from threats and discrimination, but it could all have been dealt with so much better.

        Yes, like Southern California. Good climate, good neighbors.. Nobody to hate them, no borders to defend..

      Great minds, PC.
      I've always thought that Florida should be turned into Israel, or vice versa.

    "Well said. It is probably the most vile dictatorship on the planet today,". I didn't know they had elections in dictatorships with more than one party.

    And the US could still pick up the tab!
