    The Coming Iran Nuke Showdown


    It's no secret the entire Mideast is nervous about Iran achieving nuclear weapons. They're a destabilizing factor and although Iran is threatening Israel directly, all Arab nations fear what's next.

    Israel has taken out sites in Iran before, but they don't trumpet it. They've taken out Syrian reactors too... quietly. Now it's being reported that Saudi Arabia will allow Israeli jets to fly over their airspace to attack Iranian nuclear targets. This represents a major shift in the Mideast game of Who Do ya Trust.

    If Israel takes care of the Iranian nuke problem while Obama threatens Israel and placates Ahmadinejad, our position in the region will seriously weaken. How could they possibly take us seriously? If the Arabs look to their old enemies, the Jews, to remove the threat of an Iran with nukes, and we're on the sidelines, what clout do we have afterward?

    The Saudis don't want Iran or anyone else in the area to have nukes either. They enjoy a relatively stable country that makes a shit load of cash. Rather than piss off Iran directly and threaten their cash flow with a war they'll let Israel take the rap and blow the targets. Good positioning by Saudi Arabia. This just goes to show you that money solves all disputes. The Saudis ability to stay in business, uninterrupted trumps any petty religious or social disputes they have with Israel.

    I foresee Russia getting involved on Iran's behalf here. Be careful what you wish for. Smaller nations have always been used as pawns

    Russia has cockblocked UN actions against Iran for decades. They've historically wanted a warm water port. This is why Russia meddles there, Georgia, etc.

    Go Israel! They've done this several times in the past.. they should have no trouble doing it in the future - though I hope they do it regardless if the US offers support or...something. And I agree, if we don't help, we'll just be seen as weak. Thats great :P

    That would be pretty interesting to see the majority of the Middle Eastern Countries become a little buddy buddy with Israel over this issue.

    It could happen. It's really the extremist nations supported BY Iran that give Israel shit. They might not have any great love for Israel, but it's a fatc they're stabile and are a much better neighbor than Iran or IRaq under Saddam.
