Barack Obama says he's not bluffing on possibility of Iran attack

The US president said both Israel and Iran recognise that when he says it is “unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say.”

    Obama does not want to attack Iran. What ever else Obama is, he is not a war mongering imperialist President. He is the least pro-Israeli American President since the foundation of the State of Israel.

    Obama does not want Israel to attack Iran either. But he knows that Israel will attack Iran if necessary in the same way that Israel attacked and took out Iraq’s nuclear capability. Therefore Obama and the EU are issuing strong warnings to both Iran and Israel.

    Iran is a rogue state that supports state sponsored terrorism inside Iran, in the Middle East and elsewhere. If the IRA were still active, Iran would be quite capable of supplying them with weapons, training and other support to be used here in Ireland or in Britain against Irish or British people in the same way that Gadaffi’s ‘s Libya did. Iran is strategically positioned to threaten the oil producing countries of the Arabian Gulf and the Straits of Hormuz.

    If Iran tries to attack any of its neighbours or shipping in the Gulf, the US Seventh Fleet and its allies will attack Iran.If Israel believes Iran is about to posses a capability to attack Israel, Israel will attack Iran in pre-emotive self defense. If this happens, let us hope that Iranian civilian casualties will be minimal and that the tyrannical Iranian regime is replaced by something which will nit threaten it’s neighbours or its own people.

    I wonder what would have happened if Israel hadn’t taken out the Syrian nuclear facility in September 2006? I also wonder how many around here would trust Assad with nuclear weapons?
