A Simple Question

So, the chance that Israel will attack Iran to "take out its nuclear program" is becoming increasingly likely (as the lawyers say, greater than 50%). So, if Israel decides to attack Iran, and Iran retaliates but only against Israel, where does that leave us? Are we automatically drawn into the maelstrom? It must be brutal enough being an American soldier in Iraq, but to think that you could get your ass blown off because of some idiots in the IDF wanting to flex their toys would be too much to even contemplate.

Or, worse still, because some idiots in the *US* wanted the IDF to flex its toys...

As an died in the wool Beach Boys afficionado, I thought "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb....Bomb, Bomb Iran" was in extremely bad taste.

So what is your plan? Should the Israelis wait until after their country is turned into a radioactive slag pile by the fanatics running Iran before they take any action? Would you be so passive if it was your hometown that Ahmadinejad had threatened to wipe off the map? Or is 9/11 just another day of the year to you?
