    Is this why he's so against a deal?

    He already made up his mind on military actions but haven't had the timing or internal support to execute.

    It's such a joke at this point, there's no real differentiation between what's serious and what's just political posturing.

    If I think about it in the big picture, Netenyahu and the iranian government do a wonderful job of supporting each others' terror against their citizens. Why would any want to get rid of the other? Neither of them would survive a nuclear move. Israel is a country of 14m ppl, if they stupidly decide to turn the Middle East nuclear, all 350 million arabs will be mobilized and nothing will stop the end of that nation state. He would be putting his own citizens at risk. All the fear mongering about being surrounded by countries which hate them would become reality.

    The inverse is true as well. If Iran ever used a nuclear weapon, the country would be sent back a century like Iraq and the guys at the top, who we all know only care about $$$, will lose their ability to hoard money and live. Why would they give that up? Only an idiot who knows nothing about the Middle East believes that the iranian leaders care about ISRAEL more than they do about their own power at home lol. These are literally a bunch of village idiots who stole a country flush with natural resources. They don't give a damn about all that ooga booga non sense. They've simply taken a page out of the US and Nazi playbook (special thanks to Edward Bernays) - create a great satanic enemy abroad to align the citizenry and ensure they don't organize against internal injustices. Create an imaginary need for overspending on military because that's the easiest way to make massive transfers of wealth in their own favor.

    It's all textbook stuff. Whether Netenyahu wants to or doesn't want to bomb them doesn't really matter. All that matters is he will not do it, and Iran will never do it either unless the leaders have nothing to lose anymore.

    I'm pretty sure he does in 2015, and will in 2016, too.

    I'm guessing he'a got his team writing up a pitch to use in case Trump or someone else he thinks he can convince gets elected. In fact, I'm betting he pulls the pitch out and gives it a go no matter who gets elected.

    I would also bet he much more bullish on getting the USA to do it than actually taking the risk himself.

    He understands that when Iran says they want to destroy Israel (and America) they mean it. What better avenue to destroy Israel than a nuclear bomb????

    Being a strong leader is such a meaningless nonsensical talking point for conservatives nowadays. George W Bush was a strong leader, he pretty much led us to two stupid wars and a devastated economy but damn he was a strong leader. Such a strong leader! Even if it led us off a cliff but ooooh, strong leader!! You guys are such simple minded dopes...

    What about when they actually have a nuclear bomb??? We made that goal much easier with the 100+ billion windfall we just gave them with an extremely soft inspection schedule and that is just assuming the even attempt to comply with the agreement/treaty which anyone with a brain knows they will not!

    Points 1 to of attributes of fascism.

    ++++++++
    http://rense.com/general37/char.htm

    Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

    1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

    2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

    3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

    4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread
    domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

    Again what you're talking about are not actual facts. The treaty with Iran does not involve the U.S. giving them money. It involves making more difficult for them to achieve the nuclear missile in exchange for having some access to their own money.

    I don't think Iran would actually attack Israel, that would be suicide. What'll they do is supply their militia group that they've created and finance throughout the last 40 years to do the job. Hezbollah has been killing Jews and Americans with the iranian support for years, do you not think if they had their hands on nuclear weapons Israel would be number one target?

    If you think using a nuke against Israel is suicidal, then why Iran wouldn't but Hezbollah would? Because Hezbollah is ok at being suicidal?

    Then there is also the issue of wiping out everything there, including one of the most religious place for Muslim and the large Muslim population living there.

    So Iran attacking Israel would be suicidal but Hezbollah, a group created and financed by Iran, nuking Israel wouldn't be suicidal? Maybe you should think about that one for a bit, come back when you get your story straight.

    Probably not the smartest when Israel has 200 warheads and four Dolphin class submarines deployed.

    Money is not the reason Iran doesn't have a nuke. Your boy Netanyahoo has been predictng Iran was on the verge of getting a nuke for twenty freaking years now. Seriously, what on Earth are you talking about? What is your plan?

    The usual Israel haters coming out.

    Netanyahu might not be perfect, but, unlike the government of Iran, he is not a criminal and terrorist.
