Think gas is expensive now?

Just wait'll Tehran is a greasy... black... smokin'... hole in the ground...

"If Iran continues with its programme for developing nuclear weapons, we will attack it." Mr Mofaz, former chief of the army and defence minister told Yediot Ahronot.

"Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable."
Damn... that sounds so familiar.

Of course, there's also the "C'mon mom... just one more minute" school of international diplomacy...
"With unilateral military actions, countries are undermining international agreements, and we are at a historic turning point," ElBaradei told German newspaper Der Spiegel, referring both to Mofaz's statements and to Israel's strike on an alleged Syrian nuclear reactor in September.
Say, Mohamed... how's that been working for you?

I think gas prices will actually go down when Iran is blown off the face of the earth. The alligator tears will flow, and there will be that big group hug, and everyone wanting to get along.

There are times you just got to say fuck it and show them who is da boss. We can then get back to building a globalized economy.

Nothing like a fuck you and the camel you rode in on, to introduce world peace to the backward nations.

well, it's all actually moot, because this is like a chess game where both players already know the inevitable outcome 5 moves down the road.

iran won't back off... israel won't let them have a functioning a-bomb... it's all over except for the charred, smokin' corpses and the piles of rubble.

ahmadinejad wants martyrs... and trust me, he's gonna get them

Imadinnerjacket is a coward, and no doubt, will be heading for bin laden's cave first sign of rain. That is ok, because I know he doesn't make a move with out mossad knowing about it. That is ok, can kill two evil freaks with one martyr maker.

Have you all missed the message, Obama will not let Iran have a bomb. He is going to talk to dinnerjacket and say, Pleae, Please, Pretty Please, stop making your bomb. Guess what dinnerjacket will say. Democrats will be shocked at this, the media will wonder what happened, but will have cameras there for the attack by Isreal.

israel will bring the shithammer down on iran... and, i daresay, anyone foolish enough to try back iran's play.

the only possible geo-political pivot here... is a fundamentalist coup in pakistan... and the smart money says israel will pull the trigger anyway.

three unavoidable consequences in this world... death, taxes and israel doesn't bluff.

Firstly, Begin is dead and Sharon is in a coma. There is simply no current Israeli leader with the kind of balls needed to launch an attack of this type at this time without it being a ‘samson option’.

Quoting Mofaz has absolutely no political cache at this time and shows your true ignorance of not only Israeli politics but Israeli society.

A minister who is neither the Minister of Defence or the Chief of Staff but simply another Kadima KP who is facing the very real possibility of not being high enough on the list to keep his seat in the next election – especially if Livni wins the leadership race has zero credibility – a political hack, who even now is being denounced by the current government and his own party for using cheap rhetoric in an attempt to further his own political leadership aspirations is not to be taken seriously.

Furthermore, to suggest the Israeli leadership would launch a pre-emptive attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities when it gives Hamas a free rein to use the Israeli civilian population as target practice is not the government likely to take pre-emptive action against Iran. And don’t bother bringing up the attack on Syria’s military facility – Syria long ago lost the ability to retaliate militarily against the Israelis which is why Syria fights with proxies and the Israelis did not risk all by attacking Syrian facilities.

hahahahahah, iran is going to the un, and demanding they tell Israel to stop threatening them.

oh yeah, like Israel cares what the anti-semite un thinks or says.

you're going down iran, and it looks real good on you. You can only taunt the spartans for so long, before they squish you under their heels like bugs.

Go Israel go!

oh, kateland... always interested in your opinion... but i guess you didn't actually follow the links.

Or pay attention to world politics. There is Israel, and then there is ISRAEL, just like there is Canada and CANADA. In times of historical importance, ISRAEL, like CANADA, call on the strong and true to take charge.

They let the left-lib socialist blather on in the good times, but in the times of importance, when countries have to deal with ignorant ingrates, the little Canadians and Israelis are put in the corner with a soother.

What is the name of that country in between iran and Israel called?

well... i don't know about the rest of the blogosphere... but the guys who run the global cash register... sure took it seriously.

"The statement was a factor in a spike in oil prices by nearly nine percent."

Gee Neo why don’t you follow your own links –

You have been promising the Israelis were gonna clean the Iranian clock since July 2006…the rest of us our waiting, although I suppose in the tradition that a broken clock is right at least once in 12 hours you may eventually be right – but the operative words are “may eventually’ – and that is only if the Israeli people diverse themselves from leaders which allow the IDF to move military personnel from the line of fire but keep Israeli civilians undefended. See this post since I am reasonably sure you would have missed.

Why don’t you just go back to your regularly blogging. Surely to G-d - there are at least one or two minority groups you haven’t fully abused with your hatemongering?

"kateland says... one or two minority groups you haven’t fully abused"

read again and read slower, kate... like charles johnson at lgf... i simply pull the items outta the paper and throw in some commentary.

my philosophy here is, "if you're not measuring, you're not managing".

i can understand though, why you might lash out like this... i guess you've got more of a "dog in this fight" than a lotta folks.

and truly... life can be unfair.

i don't report on groups per se, except in the context of "the wad"... and more importantly, i cite very specific instances.

what you see as prejudice is simply my loathing for "political correctness"... and the fuzzy-bunny "buy the world a coke" perspective of the leftbot media.

what i write about is "culture"... not race... culture that, in too many cases, seemingly promotes violence, misogyny and personal lack of responsibility... mostly, i might add, to other members of the "so-called communities" involved.

i'd certainly be interested in knowing what your dissenting perceptions of the situation are.

if you disagree with my point of view... there are certainly plenty of folks over at liblogs you could commiserate with... but you won't get any p.c. sugarcoating here.

as for israel... if you think they're gonna let iran get hold of any sort of nuclear device... you are truly deluded. they have war-gamed this down to the nth degree... and absolutely will strike, at minimum, any facilities they know about.

i didn't say it was entirely sane... just inevitable.

regardless... thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Hatemongering? another clueless one, who cheers on the obliteration of Israel. We're next on the fry list, Israel is the only thing between them and us.

We are not to take iran serious when they state they will destroy Israel and all Jews? You got a dictator who has a bad tailor, who takes seriously the ranting of a guy who supposedly had a flying horse, and we are to roll over and play dead?

That might work for the left-libs, but in reality, you got to kill that guy, and anything associated with it.

"hp says... Hatemongering? another clueless one, who cheers on the obliteration of Israel."

that's not exactly what kateland is about... you could give her a read.

I give her a skim, another one with the inside skinny on Israel.

Like I said, there is Israel, and there is ISRAEL.

"hatemongering"

well... i have to confess i was a little disappointed when kateland reached into the "eternal victimhood grievance bag" and tossed this one out.

we go back a ways... i even designed the header image for her blog. but most importantly, i thought she knew better.

what i will say is that i despise politically correct posturing, which is mostly about an unwillingness to address indisputable facts, or to refuse to call things by their actual names.

to deny that there is a huge social dislocation in many of toronto's ethnic communities is sheer madness. to deny that there is an epidemic of young black men killing other young black men... serves no one, least of all young black men, in those communities.

and kateland knows that. she's just pissed that her sons get lumped in with the crazies... and that's a legitimate beef.

but pretending the problem doesn't exist is insane. the crazies are out there... and, thank the fates, (and our fleeing toronto, years back) they aren't gunnin' for my kid.

but they have other kids in their sights... don't they?

sorry, kate... that's just the way it is. and you can bury your head in the sand... or you can try to address the issue.

and the israel thing, kate? i think you're being just as naive on that one too. but that's what's so great about this country... we can offer up dissenting opinions.

that's also why it's so unfortunate when the faisal josephs and mohammed elmasry's of the world... try to drown out free speech... with bleating cries of hatemongering & racism.

like you just did here.
