Israel’s Drive to War With Iran

The Times of Israel is reporting today that Israel’s Air Force (IAF) is gearing up for an attack on Iran. While this is not new, the war rhetoric continues to accelerate.

A detailed report about Israel attacking Iran appeared on a major Israeli TV station yesterday. Talks with Iran are scheduled in May, but they hardly qualify as any real diplomatic solution, as in my opinion, Israel has already decided on a military strike in the future. I would not be surprised, depending on Obama’s poll numbers, to see a U.S./Israeli war on Iran before this year’s election.

The reporter of today’s story said that if negotiations (what negotiations?) break down, and Iran moves key parts of its nuclear program underground, the IAF “is likely to get the order to set out on the long journey to Iran.”

There are a couple of things wrong with these statements. First, there are no negotiations, there are only demands and threats levied against Iran by both Israel and the U.S. Secondly, there is no solid evidence of any kind by any U.S. intelligence agency that Iran is actively working on a nuclear weapon, although in my opinion, they should be if they want to deter the monsters in the U.S. and Israel who are out to destroy that entire country.

A better way of course, would be for all countries to abandon all nuclear weapons, but if aggressors like the U.S. and Israel are going to stockpile and threaten to use these horrible weapons, then all others will have to defend themselves by whatever means necessary. This is not a good solution, but one I fear that will be done out of necessity.

“Years of preparations are likely to come to realization,” the reporter said, adding that “the moment of truth is near.”

The moment of truth he is referring to is simply continued hegemony, and the likelihood of another aggressive and unnecessary war in that region. This is not the answer, and could very easily turn into World War III! All of us will suffer greatly should this war take place, and many more innocents will die. They will all have died for nothing! They will all have died due to aggression, murder, and imperialistic desires, nothing more!
