Should Iran be prevented from having nuclear weapons?

Post by Ivan on Fri Nov 18, 2011 10:53 pm

First topic message reminder :

I used to think it was breathtaking arrogance and hypocrisy for those countries which have nuclear weapons to make judgements about which other countries could, or couldn’t, have them as well. After all, if you want to take the moral high ground on this issue, shouldn’t you get rid of your own nuclear weapons before telling other countries that they can’t have them?

My opinion changed immediately when I heard the President of the Islamofascist state of Iran (who goes by some name like ‘Ironmydinnerjacket’) say, on the first of several occasions, that he wanted "to wipe Israel off the map”. George W. Bush, with his talk of 'crusades' and his readiness to go to war against Saddam Hussein “because he tried to kill my daddy”, was a dangerous man to have in charge of nuclear weapons, but no Western power has talked of wiping out nations.

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council, and Germany, have expressed their "increasing concern" over Iran's nuclear programme, and they have called for clarification over any possible military uses. Iran insists that the programme is for purely peaceful purposes, but the International Atomic Agency says they want to send a high level mission to Iran to clear up any confusion.

With nuclear weapons, Iran could do very serious damage to Israel, and a pre-emptive strike by the Israelis must be a strong possibility. Should we support that, or even precipitate it? Are attempts at negotiation with Iran a waste of time?

This may be the point at which someone brings the thread back to the topic, "Should Iran be prevented from having nuclear weapons." It's a very patronising choice of words, which assumes that an affirmative answer is both logical and enforceable.

There's a very old story about a colony of mice who were being terrorised by a cat, and held a discussion in which it was determined to put a bell around the cat's neck so as to provide ample warning of its approach.

An older and wiser mouse then asked, "But who is going to attach the bell to the cat?"

Simon Wiesenthal Center Urges Chancellor Merkel, Bundestag To Restore Rights Of Jews And Muslims To Perform Circumcisions
July 5, 2012

Officials of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights NGO, are urging German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Bundestag leaders to take immediate legislative steps to ensure the rights of Jews and Muslims to continue the age-old practice of circumcising their male children. “It would be a stain on today's Germany to have this ruling stand,” wrote Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean and associate dean in a July 5th letter to Chancellor Merkel.
           
The rabbis wrote that the judicial ruling in Cologne "is an attack on one of the fundamental principles of Judaism.  For 3,500 years, every male child has entered the Jewish people through the rite of circumcision.  We are not talking about a mere custom, but a biblical principle that has defined the Jewish people from time immemorial,” They added that, "Jews circumcised their children even at the risk of their lives when tyrants such as Antiochus and Stalin barred it. From the outset of the Nazi era, German Jews were under attack for their beliefs and practices, including circumcision.  Hitler said in one of his infamous anti-Semitic rants, ‘…Conscience is a Jewish invention, it is a blemish like circumcision.’”    

http://www.wiesenthal.com/site/apps/nlnet/content2.aspx?c=lsKWLbPJLnF&b=4441467&ct=11943233

Jews, including Jewish rabbis, often stand up to protect the unalienable human rights of Muslims. I tend to trust such folks a bit more than I trust a Looney Tunes prime minister and a coven of intolerant ayatollah theocrats from Iran.

Simon Wiesenthal Center: Iranian Calls to Destroy Jewish People Unparalleled Since Nazi Germany
Urge World Powers To Seek Indictment for Incitement to Genocide - A Crime Against Humanity
February 6, 2012

The Simon Wiesenthal Center charged today that recent statements by Iran’s Supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei along with a detailed blueprint for the destruction of the Jewish people posted on a website run by the head of the Iranian Parliament's research center, constituted a pre-genocidal crime against humanity, unparalleled since Nazi Germany.

WND, an online news service revealed that the Iranian website Alef has posted a long, detailed plan to wipe out Israel’s infrastructure, annihilate the Jewish State and murder Jews worldwide: http://www.alef.ir/vdcepw8zwjh8ewi.b9bj.html?142262

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei… called Israel "a cancerous tumor" that had to be removed. Now Iranian analyst Alireza Forghani writing on the Alef website (and posted on the official FARS news agency) details a plan for Iran to remove “this corrupting material” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel.

“This is the first time since the Nazis' Final Solution that such explicit plans for a genocide against the Jewish people is being promoted,” charged Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, dean and founder and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish human rights NGO.

http://www.wiesenthal.com/site/apps/nlnet/content2.aspx?c=lsKWLbPJLnF&b=4441467&ct=11622141

Meanwhile, Iran’s Supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, incites people to annihilate the State of Israel and exterminate Jews worldwide.

Since the immoral ayatollah seeks to finish what Uncle Adolf started, a moral man like me must choose to oppose this evil regime in any way possible.

'I see no future for Jews in the Netherlands'
Former Dutch EU commissioner says "recognizable" Jews are no longer safe in Netherlands due to Muslim anti-Semitism.
By JPOST.COM STAFF
LAST UPDATED: 12/07/2010 14:09

Former European Union Commissioner Frits Bolkenstein said that Jews have no future in the Netherlands and recommended that they emigrate to the US or Israel, Dutch magazine Elsevier reported on Tuesday.

According to a book on Dutch Judaism, released this week, Bolkestein, former leader of the right-wing VVD party, said that due to anti-Semitism amongst young Moroccans Jews who look like Jews - those who wear kippahs or payot - should leave Holland for their own safety.

"I see no future for recognizable Jews, in particular because of anti-Semitism, specifically in Dutch Moroccans, who continue to grow in number," Bolkestein reportedly said.

The former politician added that the many Arab television channels in the Netherlands contribute to the spread of anti-Semitism. He said he has no confidence in proposed measures to combat anti-Jewish sentiment.

http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=198382

Former European Union Commissioner Frits Bolkenstein seems to affirm that, in the Netherlands, aided by Arab television stations’ broadcasts of anti-Jewish content, the de-Jewification of Europe continues.

I've not encountered the word de-Jewification elsewhere, but if Britain is typical of Europe the reality is that Jewish people have been assimilated into the general population.

Muslims are to be found all over Europe, but wherever they are tend to preserve their original customs of dress and culture.

You’ve omitted “Jews” from your quote of my post of Friday 12 October 2012 at 15:37. Europeans have been omitting Jews from Europe since 1933, an activity that, according to former European Union Commissioner Frits Bolkenstein, remains ongoing in the Netherlands (click here), a Western European nation. Many of those Jews omitted from Europe since 1933 departed Europe by murder, as the following chart illustrates.

36 Questions About the Holocaust

How many Jews were murdered in each country and what percentage of the pre-war Jewish population did they constitute?

Belgium 28,900 -- 44.0%
Latvia 71,500 -- 78.1%
Bohemia/Moravia 78,150 -- 66.1%
Lithuania 143,000 -- 85.1%
Netherlands 100,000 -- 71.4%
Poland 3,000,000 -- 90.9%
France 77,320 -- 22.1%
Romania 287,000 -- 47.1%
Germany 141,500 -- 25.0%
Slovakia 71,000 -- 79.8%
Greece 67,000 -- 86.6%
Hungary 569,000 -- 69.0%
Yugoslavia 63,300 -- 81.2%

Tha'ts better roc, at last you've shown it all happened at the time of the Nazis in Countries that were conquered by the same. The holocaust was was a terrible time in history and should be remembered though not obsessed about. It isn't happening now and my European "brothers" were themselves victims at the time: note; Britain isn't on your list brother!

Your Jewish European brothers were the victims. Prior to 1933, the majority of Jews on the planet were European Jews, evicted from their homelands, Israel/Judah, called Galilee and Judea by the 1st Century AD, by Europeans commanded from a city located on the Italian peninsula, that, being denied re-access to these homelands by those same European masters, ultimately settled throughout Europe, where your Jewish European brothers survived relatively intact in spite of periodic persecution, including inquisitions, to which they were subjected solely because they were Jews.

Beginning in 1933, your Jewish European brothers became targets of a new sort of persecution, eventually called the “Final Solution”, as if your Jewish European brothers were a “problem”, perpetrated upon them by your non-Jewish European brothers, which resulted in two out of three European Jews in existence in 1933 being wiped off of the face of the earth by 1950.

According to former European Union Commissioner Frits Bolkenstein (click here), the de-Jewification of Europe continues today in the Netherlands, aided by ant-Jew content being aired by Arab television outlets.

Whatever we class ourselves as, at the end of the day we are all simply humans and have human insticts, human feelings and characteristics, and this is the same regardless of faith or creed.

Any decent and right thinking person would naturaly sympathize with the Jews and their history of persecution and torment, but why feel sympathy for one particular group of people but not another. ?

Are Palestinians somehow inferior, or are the Palestinians not deserving of sympathy for been stateless or for living in abject poverty without many of the basics that we regard as essential.

A fair deal for the Israelis, and a fair deal for the Palestinians

The middle east at the present time is rather like a chess board, everyone is wondering who is going to make the next move, and what would be the consequences of certain moves.

If Israel does attack Iran, would Iran retaliate, how many different terror groups in how many different countries would launch and plan attacks on Israel or on Israeli targets, how many people would be killed or injured.

Would it not be simpler and much more easy for Israel to say out loud "we can create a free Palestine providing we can all settle down and live side by side in peace".

The Israel - Palestinian question gets complicated once history is brought into play, but this isent 300 BC or the dark ages, this is NOW, the bottom line realy is either two states or more misery and death and possibly war.

The underlined word minimizes or negates the statement preceding it. That’s the nature of “but” when used as it is used in the excerpt above.

In my words and actions, including my words hereon and my political actions, I cannot and shall not allow myself to minimize or negate my unwavering and abiding support for the absolute right of Israeli Jews, and the absolute duty of the Israeli government and its agencies, including the Israeli Defence Force and Mossad, to secure the internal and external security of the State of Israel and protect and defend Israeli Jews by any means necessary. Given the track record of Europeans in protecting and defending European Jews, I cannot and shall not model my words and actions after their example.

I am an American; I am a Texan. I shall model my words and actions regarding the security of Israel and the lives and well-being of Israeli Jews after a different model.

A Fair deal for Palestinian Arabs must include a unilateral and unconditional disavowal of Palestinian Arabs’ stated goals of Israel’s annihilation and Palestinian Jews’ extermination, expressed from 1948 until now by their war of extermination against Israeli Jews, and clearly articulated by the despicable supreme head of Iran in the following text.

When Palestinian Arabs unilaterally and unconditionally disavow their stated and actualized commitment to annihilate Israel and exterminate Israeli Jews, a step that they should have taken in 1948, then good faith peace negotiations between Palestinian Arabs and Palestinian Jews can commence.

Somebody's computer seems to be storing different messages to the ones we read on this thread.

New readers start here:
The Arab leadership (in and out of Palestine) opposed partition and claimed all of Palestine.[36] The Arabs argued that it violated the rights of the majority of the people in Palestine, which at the time was 67% non-Jewish (1,237,000) and 33% Jewish (608,000).[7]

A few weeks after UNSCOP released its report, Azzam Pasha, the General Secretary of the Arab League, was quoted by an Egyptian newspaper as predicting that Palestine would be overrun by Muslim volunteers.[37] According to the reporter, he said "Personally I hope the Jews do not force us into this war because it will be a war of elimination and it will be a dangerous massacre which history will record similarly to the Mongol massacre or the wars of the Crusades."[37]

Arab leaders threatened the Jewish population of Palestine, speaking of "driving the Jews into the sea" and ridding Palestine "of the Zionist Plague".[39] On 20 May 1948, Azzam told reporters "We are fighting for an Arab Palestine"[40]…

Jewish reaction

Jews in Palestine and around the world reacted to the UN resolution with jubilation. The Jewish Agency, which was the recognized representative of the Jewish community, praised and accepted the resolution while expressing dissatisfaction with some of the details.[28] Mainstream Zionist leaders emphasized the "heavy responsibility" of building a modern Jewish State, and committed to working towards a peaceful coexistence with the region's other inhabitants:[29][30][31]

It is now our primary task to establish relations of peace and harmony with our Arab neighbors – Chaim Weizmann

[Menachem] Begin warned that the partition would not bring peace because the Arabs would also attack the small state and that "in the war ahead we'll have to stand on our own, it will be a war on our existence and future".[32]

Arab reaction

The Arab leadership (in and out of Palestine) opposed partition and claimed all of Palestine.[36] The Arabs argued that it violated the rights of the majority of the people in Palestine, which at the time was 67% non-Jewish (1,237,000) and 33% Jewish (608,000).[7]

Read this fact here : In 1948 when independence was declared by Israel, there were more Palestinians in Israel than there were Jews.

Now would anyone like to explain what the word "democracy" actualy means ?

I always thought that the basic principle of democracy was one man-one vote, and all people have the right to exercise that right regardless, which in any right thinking persons mind, must make the founding of Israel completely illegitimate.

What happened in Palestine in 1948 would be similar to native Americans or Afro-Americans taking over the United States and making white Americans second class citizens.

The difference of course is that the Jews have an historical claim on lands in the middle east going back 2000 years, it is where Jews originate from many many moons ago.

Well been that I am a proud Yorkshireman from the east coast, I might just get a group of other people with Viking ancestors and go and claim some land in Denmark or Norway, I wonder if the present residents of Scandanavia might be upset. ?

Read the f acts:

Palestinian Jews were Palestinians. The ancestors of Palestinian Jews arrived in Israel/Judea about three thousand eight hundred years ago, when Abram/Abraham and Lot arrived. Abraham’s grandson, Jacob/Israel, his sons, and their families, fled to Egypt to escape famine; four hundred years later, their descendants, and the “strangers” that dwelt among them, departed Egypt, arriving back in Israel/Judah-Judea forty years later. Since that time, Jews have lived continuously in Israel/Judah-Judea.

During the 1st century AD, serious persecution of Jews by Europeans began. Jews were expelled from their homeland, Jews were eliminated at Masada, and Jews were hunted down and killed throughout Israel/Judah-Judea by Europeans and their allies/mercenaries ultimately commanded from a European city on the Italian peninsula. During the ensuing nineteen hundred years, forcibly exiled Jews, Jews of the Diaspora, attempted to settle peacefully amongst their European human brethren, only to be subjected by their European human brothers to repeated persecutions, pogroms, being forced to live in ghettos, inquisitions, other violence, and ultimately, from 1933-1945, mass genocide on a near unfathomable scale. Of the nine million Jews of the Diaspora in 1933 Europe, descendants of Jews killed and kicked out of Israel/Judah-Judea one thousand nine hundred years ago, two thirds, six million, were exterminated by 1945.

As a direct result of experiencing unspeakable horror in Europe at the hands of their European human brethren, surviving Jews, a bare remnant of the thriving pre-1933 Jewish communities throughout Europe, which in themselves were testaments to the character of a people that thrived in spite of their Europeans human brethren’s repeated persecutions, emigrated from Israel in an virtually forced migration, a modern day Exodus, to seek shelter and safety among the Jewish remnant that managed to remain in Israel/Judah-Judea during the 1st Century European ravaging of their homeland. This Jewish remnant, now called Palestinian Jews, or simply Palestinians, to a large degree assimilated unto themselves their returning fellow genetic and cultural descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.

A minority in their own land, these Palestinian Jews holding direct historic claims to the land from which most were expelled in the 1s Century AD by European conquerors, agreed to the United Nations partition of Palestine while beginning to accept into their midst the first of eight hundred fifty thousand Jews forcibly expelled from Arab countries and other Muslim-culture North African and Asian countries solely because they were Jews. In fact, Arab fascists, particularly those of the Baath Party, Baathists like Saddam the beast Hussein, worship Adolf Hitler and have embraced Nazi hatred of Jews.

Even Iran (the primary subject of this thread), neither Arab nor Sunni, has taken up this vile heritage, hosting a 21st Century symposium in which “scholars” told lies to one another denying the historicity of the Holocaust. Most recently, Iran’s supreme ayatollah, that Looney Tunes prime minister’s bossman, called for the annihilation of Israel and the extermination of Jews.

Quiet as is kept, one reason US targets were chosen for the 11 September 2001 massacres is because al qaida expected to exterminate large numbers of Jews that morning, a reasonable expectation given the fact that, after the modern Jewish Exodus from the Europe of their Holocaust, nearly six million Jews call America, my America, home. And damnit, as long as I draw cognizant breath, my Jewish American brothers will continue to have my unwavering support for and participation in their unwavering support for their Israeli/Palestinian Jewish brothers and for the internal and external security of Israel by any means necessary.

I am a mongrel.

I am West African; thus, I am a Black American, a Black Texan, and a Black man.

I am some kind of Irish; thus, some of my ancestors suffered prosecution on their own Emerald isle at the hands of English land barons and assorted English aristocracy that, among other atrocities, filled their larders whilst Irishmen starved to death during the mid-19th Century potato famine.

I am some kind of Scot, likely distant kin to border reavers who recouped a bit of Scot pride by raising their own cattle while eating English cattle.

I am Cherokee, a people whose claim to American land stretches back perhaps ten thousand years, a people forcibly expelled from their historic homeland, an event reminiscent of what Jews experienced when they were forcibly expelled from their historic homeland in the 1st century AD, by one Andrew Jackson, President of the United States, Commander-in-Chief of the US Army which carried out his immoral order, and a descendant of European colonizers of the United States.

This is my country. What happened to Israeli/Palestinian Jews in 1948 is in no way similar to the ridiculous scenario you’ve concocted in which you presume that Black Americans, Cherokee Americans, Irish Americans, and SDcots Americans, are not Americans. Here’s the deal: Quiet as is kept, except for white supremacists, we in 21st century America do not place designate Americans as owners the United States and relegate Black Americans, Cherokee Americans, Irish Americans, and Scots Americans to mere tenant status in the land that they own as English aristocrats did to Irish Irishmen in Ireland and Scottish Scots in Scotland.

This song’s for you.

Yes RockOnBrother I did allready know that you are a black Texan / American

a black person from the southern half of the United States realy ought to understand and sympathize with the plight of the Palestinians and how they are treated by the Isreallis.

The Israeli / Palestinian problem is at the heart of all the problems which have come from the middle east, its the root cause of all the terrorist attacks by Islamic extremists, if we could solve the Isreali / Palestinian problem, we would sow the seeds for a better and safer world.

My convention is to honor the honorable by capitalizing terms of ethnic identification; thus, when referring to honorable folks, to me it’s Black Texan/Black American. Some of my friends are White Texans/White Americans. One valued friend is a White South Carolinian.

Due to mongrelization, I am also, genetically and vaguely ethnically, an Irish Texan/Irish American, genetically a Scot American/Scot Texan, genetically a Cherokee American/Cherokee Texan, and the Lord only knows what else. Notice that all ethnic identifications are capitalized.

Now those hooded clowns are white non-Americans that, by accident of birth, are allowed to partake of the liberties that they do not deserve. The New Black Panthers and Calypso Louis are likewise black non-Americans.

Please know that the original Black Panther Party for Self Defense included several Black Americans, including a Black Texan, Bobby Seale, with whom I disagree on many points but respect more than I can articulate. And another Bobby, Robert Francis Kennedy, was an Irish American/White American whose assassination forty-four plus years ago profoundly diminished my country.

Perhaps the fact that I am a Black Texan fuels my empathy for a people persecuted beyond comprehension for nearly two thousand years of exile, not of their own choosing, from their historic homeland, Israel/Judah-Judea.

I find it extremely disrespectful to decent humans to attribute bestial exterminations committed by al qaida, the taliban, hezbollah, hamas, islamic jihad, and the like to anyone other than al qaida, the taliban, hezbollah, hamas, islamic jihad, and the like.

36 Questions About the Holocaust

How many Jews were murdered in each country and what percentage of the pre-war Jewish population did they constitute?

Belgium 28,900 -- 44.0%
Latvia 71,500 -- 78.1%
Bohemia/Moravia 78,150 -- 66.1%
Lithuania 143,000 -- 85.1%
Netherlands 100,000 -- 71.4%
Poland 3,000,000 -- 90.9%
France 77,320 -- 22.1%
Romania 287,000 -- 47.1%

Thanks for the figures RoB

Do you also have the figures for Muslims killed by Jews, or by Europeans and Americans?

They may not be so easy to come by, but perhaps we can start with a conservative estimate of 650,000 Iraqi civilians in retaliation for the terrorist atrocities carried out by half a dozen Saudi and Egyptian terrorists on the World Trade Centre. It is said that more than a million Iraqis actually died but coalition forces concede that 650,000 is the known figure of identified civilian casualties.

Likewise we know that the Taliban is against human rights and is an abominable political philosophy but how many Afghani people have died since our forces have occupied Afghanistan, allegedly in pursuit of a single Saudi who was recently assassinated in Pakhistan?

Suicide bombing is an atrocity, and is a weapon of last resort. Priming children to carry out such acts is also an abomination, but how is it to be stopped?

Iran has stated categorically that it will not fire the first shot. That puts the onus on Israel to do nothing when it would prefer Iran not to have nuclear capability. Iran however has a lot of oil. This could have the potential of changing the balance of trade if Iran was not blockaded from trading with the West.

Iran’s supreme leader has stated the following.

Simon Wiesenthal Center: Iranian Calls to Destroy Jewish People Unparalleled Since Nazi Germany
Urge World Powers To Seek Indictment for Incitement to Genocide - A Crime Against Humanity
February 6, 2012

.. the Iranian website Alef has posted a long, detailed plan to wipe out Israel’s infrastructure, annihilate the Jewish State and murder Jews worldwide: http://www.alef.ir/vdcepw8zwjh8ewi.b9bj.html?142262

… Ayatollah Ali Khamenei… called Israel "a cancerous tumor" that had to be removed. Now Iranian analyst Alireza Forghani writing on the Alef website (and posted on the official FARS news agency) details a plan for Iran to remove “this corrupting material” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel.

http://www.wiesenthal.com/site/apps/nlnet/content2.aspx?c=lsKWLbPJLnF&b=4441467&ct=11622141

Note Iran’s creation and Internet publication of a “how to exterminate Jews” manual.

1. As the Republican Party’s nominee is a Temple Mormon, that which you posit lets me know that your understanding of who I am is significantly incomplete.

2. Unconditional support for Israel’s absolute right and duty to ensure Israeli Jews’ safety and lives by any means necessary is neither a Republican nor a Democratic prerogative; it’s the unwavering stand of my country, the United States of America, founded upon the quaint notion that every human possesses unalienable human rights to life and liberty, including Jews who live in Israel.

Hmmm methinks some people are more equal than others here. What of the corralled Palestinians who still hold property deeds to land and houses in Israel? They cannot even travel abroad because they lost the war due to overwhelming odds, and they have not even had passports since.

Very quaint.

But still we have to make our value judgements based on loyalty rather than morality, isn't that so, Mr Cameron?

“methinks” erroneously.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…

Perhaps my understanding of that which “methinks” erroneously stems from having learned and owned these words as a child.

Gamal Abdel Nasser and his evil coven of dedicated would-be Israel annihilators and would-be Israeli Jews exterminators throughout Egypt, Syria, and Jordan (current aggregate population one hundred twenty-eight million seven hundred fifty thousand) ought to have considered that in 1967 prior to amassing overwhelming military forces round about tiny Israel (current Israeli Jewish population five million seven hundred thousand) in preparation to annihilate Israel and exterminate Israeli Jews.

The math is simple. Divide the Egypt-Syria-Jordan aggregate population, 128,750,000, by the Israeli Jew population, 5,700,000, and determine the odds against Israel, 22.6 to 1.



Overwhelming odds? You are absolutely correct. Israeli Jews, since 1948, have faced and overcome overwhelming odds as encompassing Arab bullies seek their utter and complete destruction.

The question is this >

According to latest information available, the most technologicly advanced missiles available to Iran cannot reach Europe let alone the United States.
If Iran is indeed developing a nuclear weapons programme, and if Iran suceeds in creating a weapon capable of been launched and carried my missile, then its neighbours including Israel are within striking distance.

If the United States has a particular problem with Iran having the capability or ability to be able to strike Israel with weapons of mass destruction, then let the United States deal with it.

For me personaly, and in the opinion of many Europeans, it aint our problem.
If Israel has the capability to launch weapons of mass destruction on Iran (which of course it does) - then why should Israel expect any of the European powers to get involved in a conflict caused entirely upon the fact that Iran now has the same capability.

Our Primeminister has said that military action against Iran cannot be ruled out, yet Iran poses no threat to either the UK or Europe, there is no future prospect of Iran been able to pose any threat to the UK.

Why should we even consider spilling the blood of British men and women in a conflict that in essence is a stand-off between Israel and Iran. ?

Such a future conflict will not carry British public backing, most Britons do not see ourselves as been Israels natural ally or military sponsor.

Finally a European gets to the core issues/points.

witchfinder wrote:

First core point: If it can’t reach Europe, it’s not Europeans’ problem.

Fallacy: Technologically-advanced delivery systems are unnecessary in asymmetrical warfare. I’m unsure of either the three dimensional measurements or weights of modern nuclear devices, and in what size carriage apparatuses they might fit. I do know that an assumption that lack of technologically-advanced delivery systems equates to inability to deliver weaponry on target is a dangerous assumption, particularly to a Europe that is in fact not a separate continent, but the western portion of the huge land mass properly called Eurasia. An examination of the map between Iran and Europe reveals a continuous land passage between Iran and even the westernmost of Western European continental nations. With the Chunnel providing regular rail access between France and the UK, even y’all’s island home is land-travel accessible.

“Rule Britannia” and its unrivaled blue water navy, the Royal Navy, de facto Big brother to today’s United States Navy, taught America USV well. Since getting our backsides handed to us in a hand basket mailed Special Delivery on 7 December 1941, our heads have been out of the sand and our mindset towards national defense has been global. We don’t intentionally wait for danger to approach our shores and borders to deal with it.

11 September 2001 was an exception, perhaps due to the “Clinton-euphoria” that caused us to forget as a nation the principle of “ever vigilant.” For instance, our intelligence and spec ops folks had opportunities to take out Osama Who Swims with Fishes in the late 90s, but were compelled to pass when they were unable to get a “green light” from the top. I hope the lesson remains at the forefront of our national consciousness. Iran should not be dismissed as was Osama fourteen years ago.

It wasn’t y’all’s problem in the late 1930s, either, when Neville “Peace in Our Time” Chamberlain and his trusted colleague Adolf Hitler almost became co-recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize. Subsequent history taught that “Ostrich-ism” didn’t work very well. Some people learned the lesson.

Of interest to me is one parallel between Nazi Germany and Iran. Adolf and his coven of evil didn’t much like Jews either.

witchfinder wrote:

So how have you missed knowing of Iran’s coven of evil’s avowed goal of annihilating Israel and exterminating Jews worldwide? And last time I checked, Israel’s leaders had not vowed to annihilate Iran and exterminate Iranians worldwide.

Insofar as European powers’ involvement, I suspect Israeli Jews have had quite enough European involvement in their survival. Reliance upon European powers to secure Jews lives costs the lives of two-thirds of the Jews alive in 1933 Europe. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Because guaranteeing the survival of a people threatened with worldwide extermination is the right thing to do. It’s kinda sorta moral to oppose genocide.

You might have intended this as a rhetorical question but...

...the answer is - oil and monetarism.

Oh and they don't intend spilling our blood, or not much anyway, they intend spilling the blood of Muslims - doncha know.....

Anybody keeping score in Syria??

Srebrenica was quite a tally too..... That really was civil war, though - and awful to see the UN stand by, filming the massacre for us to watch on the News. They were there as neutral observers. That had to change after that, and the main war criminal is still lying to try and get out of any responsibility for that atrocity.

And their racism is quite something else, as we saw in the football crowds the other night!!! Not exactly a pluralist society there. How will Europe address that breach of European legislation?? Will they even really try?

Thread question: “Should Iran be prevented from having nuclear weapons?” Someone thinks so.

“With respect to Iran, I very much want to see diplomatic resolution to the problem. I was very clear before the campaign, I was clear during the campaign, and I’m now clear after the campaign, we’re not going to let Iran get a nuclear weapon.” President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama Jr., White House Press Conference, Washington D.C., 14 November 2012.

Sounds like a promise to me, and this someone keeps his promises. (Just ask Osama Who Sleeps With Fishes.)
