Iran Begging World To Deal With Them

The latest on Iran:

Iran locked on to 600 targets in Israel
Israel Today

Iran has marked 600 targets for its long-range missiles inside Israel, the Qatari newspaper Al Watan reported on Sunday.

According to the report, Iran is threatening to hit the Jewish state with a massive missile strike if either Israel or the US attack the Islamic Republic or its allies in Syria.

Recent political talk in Jerusalem and Washington indicate the time is rapidly approaching that Israel and the US will have no choice but to intervene militarily to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

Likewise, Israeli military experts are predicting a full-scale war with Syria sometime in the coming six months, possibly set off by a renewal of low-level cross-border Hizballah aggression.

Meanwhile, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Watan reported that Iran claimed to possess enough missiles to strike 600 Israeli targets and that it wouldn't hesitate to use them in the wake of an attack by the United States or Israel.

The report followed two claims by the US army over the weekend implicating Iran in attacks against US forces in Iraq.

According to an announcement on Saturday night, US troops in Iraq uncovered a field containing 50 Iranian-made rocket launchers, all aimed at a US army base.

The discovery came after the US claimed that an explosively formed penetrator - a high-tech device that the US military believes is smuggled from Iran - was used against US forces in the Baghdad area earlier Saturday.

The White House claims that Iran, whose influence in the Middle East has increased significantly over the last six years, is intent on building a nuclear weapon and is arming insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The vice-president, Dick Cheney, has long favoured upping the threat of military action against Iran. He is being resisted by the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, and the defence secretary, Robert Gates.

Last year Mr Bush came down in favour of Ms Rice, who along with Britain, France and Germany has been putting a diplomatic squeeze on Iran. But at a meeting of the White House, Pentagon and state department last month, Mr Cheney expressed frustration at the lack of progress and Mr Bush sided with him. "The balance has tilted. There is cause for concern," the source said this week.

Wild Thing's comment........

Their ideology tells them to kill, murder and destroy all Jews and Christians. Their demented minds won’t allow them to see how wrong they are. They are a real danger!

One of the concerns I have is that as the muslim and mexican illegal alien presence grows in the US, support for Israel will decline, add in to that factor the NAU when it is set up. When America goes down under this NAU idea, Israel will go down too. They very well might have it where Israel has to be denied help from America. I pray this does not happen, but it does make one think it might.

I don't know whether it is ignorance, stupidity, or both, but I am amazed at how many political leaders, commentators, and average citizens still buy into the Neville Chamberlain appeasement approach when it comes to dealing with genocidal maniacs and terrorists. I am reminded of that famous quote, "Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it." I'm afraid that we are going to repeat some very bad and ugly history.

... this equates to Hitler's Blitzkrieg in Poland so WTF is NATO and the free world waiting for? 'Game On 2007' .... + IRAN + .... !
PS: This is worse than the Cuban Missile Crisis as well...

I agree with the assessment in your comments WT. As America cedes her sovereignty to a large influx of Third World immigrants, legal and illegal, our long standing national policies will change. Most of the World has no use for Israel and those new influences will weaken our support of her.

Right now I hope Iran is about to implode. Lots of her (young) people are very unhappy with their restricted lifestyles and want more freedom. Maybe we can foment another Iranian revolution, this time back towards the West.

Why do we even want to deal with this man?
He's a psychotic wackjob!
I wish we could place some assasins in there and just pick him off.
Couldn't you just see him looking up at Fred Thompson, who is 6 foot 6 and trying to deal with Fred?
That would be mighty funny!

Les your right, and it sure seems it will be repeated again.

Darth, there has to be a point where the threats have to be answered instead of being ignored, when on earth will that be I wonder.

I would love for his own people to rise up and take him out with us not even being involved. But he keeps killing off people that disagree with what he says and does.

For me I could care less if the world likes us, hahaa I would rarher be feared and respected as a country then be wishie washie and people think they can threaten us like Iran does.
