Israel is the Death of U.S., Attack on Iran Prompts Higher Oil

Original post made by Great Depression is Upon U.S., Adobe-Meadow, on Jun 25, 2008

Israel is bent on attacking Iran and prodding U.S. to join in their "fun." If Israel attacks Iran, we will surely see nuclear weapons exploding in America, on American soil. Do not underestimate the rest of the world. America is weak now. America's economy is weak. America's defenses are weak. Our political system is broken and Americans have low morale. This attack will surely bring on the next Great Depression. Housing crash, high oil, high food prices, war in Iraq and now another war with Iran? The camel's back is broken.

Let me also add that the U.S. cannot handle any more debt. Most of our debt has come from funding the Iraq war. The ballooned and out of control national debt has caused the collapse of our dollar. Another war is THE END.

Who ever posted this-your attitude about this indicates there is only one thing for you to do: protest with others of your ilk in front of City Hall or Lytton Plaza. Perhaps that action with like minded individuals will relieve your extreme stress caused by such a dire assessment.

MikeH., good luck to you and yours when we as a nation declare bankruptcy to the rest of the world due to wars with Iraq and Iran.

Israel held military maneuvers over the Eastern Mediterranean which were extensively reported in many European news outlets. In fact it generated a great deal of publicity. It was pointed out that if Israel really wanted to bomb Iran's nuclear facilities they would never have made such a public display of their intentions.

I consider the repeated advocacy and threat to destroy another nation to be sufficient reason for the threatened nation to take steps to remove the threat.

Bush's defeats in Iraq and Afghanistan and Israel's defeat by Hezbollah in Lebanon have shown that the military firepower of the U.S. and Israeli armies, though effective against massed Arab armies, cannot defeat guerillas and insurgencies. The U.S. has battled in Iraq longer than it fought against Nazi Germany, and the situation in Iraq is out of control. The Taliban have regained half of Afghanistan. The king of Saudi Arabia has told Bush that the ground is shaking under his feet as unrest over the American/Israeli violence against Muslims builds to dangerous levels. Our Egyptian puppet sits atop 100 million Muslims who do not think that Egypt should be a lackey of U.S. hegemony. The king of Jordan understands that Israeli policy is to drive every Palestinian into Jordan.

Bush is incapable of recognizing his mistake. He can only escalate. Plans have long been made to attack Iran. The problem is that Iran can respond in effective ways to a conventional attack. Moreover, an American attack on another Muslim country could result in turmoil and rebellion throughout the Middle East. This is why the neocons have changed U.S. war doctrine to permit a nuclear strike on Iran.

Neocons believe that a nuclear attack on Iran would have intimidating force throughout the Middle East and beyond. Iran would not dare retaliate, neocons believe, against U.S. ships, U.S. troops in Iraq, or use their missiles against oil facilities in the Middle East.

Neocons have also concluded that a U.S. nuclear strike on Iran would show the entire Muslim world that it is useless to resist America's will. Neocons say that even the most fanatical terrorists would realize the hopelessness of resisting U.S. hegemony. The vast multitude of Muslims would realize that they have no recourse but to accept their fate.

An Army constrained by liberal philosophy can only try to hold down casualties. Israel did O.K. until we started puting on the brakes.
