Default Israel?

Do you think Israel will do a pre-empted strike against Iran? Do you think the world will get involved?

The World already IS Involved-Even France :P Where have you Been?
I guarantee you that the US is talking to Israel Constantly about this right now and asking the Israelis to slow down a bit and not Hit the bastard where he lives BUT the US will be first ones there if his Idle threats become Military threats.
Understanding the situation in the Middle East Israel can't be the Ones to hit them unless it depends on the Survival of Israel.
Should Asassinate the Idiot but I didn't say that :P

I knew they where involved, I guess I should have been more clear. What I meant was if Israel strikes, do you think that could be WWIII? Sorry yoopr I should have been more clear, I am actualy following this pretty close.

Another way to Look at it, if you followed Desert Storm and Iraq was Lobbing their Scud Missles into Israel, was that Israel Didn't respond to it(That had to be TOUGH) because it would have made an Explosive situation(Literally) into Armeggedon(sp) and I feel that Israel and the World knows this. Israel's Patience with this kind of stuff amazes me.
Hope you understand my response

Its unlikely Israel will launch a pre-emptive strike this time around. Iran has learned from Iraq's Basra misfortune.

The Iranian program is dispersed, hidden and buried, making it very unlikely that a single strike could take it out.

The Iranian's have more extensive air defenses than Iraq had, and they're probably on alert.

The Iranian's certainly have folks watching the Israeli airfields for signs of a strike, reducing/eliminating the force multiplier of surprise.

Most important: Everybody in the world knows that it is unlikely the Israeli's could get a strike in without the United States knowing about it. We own the airspace over the Persian Gulf. Unless we've transferred some F-117s or B-2s to Israel, they don't have stealthy enough aircraft to sneak through. Which means we either have to stop them coming through, or join in to boost the chance of success.

Either way, counting on the Israelis to deal with this problem for us is unrealistic.

Israel could, and would,handle it very easily-It's just that the Middle East wouldn't stand for Israel going after their crazy Muslim brothers.

I voted yes. I know, I am 15, but hey, I keep up with the news and stuff going on. I just feel that a world war is growing close.

I understand completly, The main reson I ask is there defense minister said they where looking at the possibility. I know this has been a posibility for a while.

I think both yoopr and biker dad have very good points. But like yoopr I believe that Israel has the capability to handle just about anything thrown against her. And too deal double.

You, your feelings just may be right.
