    So what would be the best investment when Iran and Isreal
    bomb each other?

    Gold? oil? the dollar?

    this looks like it's coming just a matter of time.

    TEHRAN (AFP) – Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday the destruction of Iran's arch-foe Israel was "imminent," and called for continued resistance against the Jewish state, state media reported.

    "I am very optimistic about the future of Palestine and believe Israel is on the steep path of decline and deterioration," Khamenei told Ramadan Abdullah, the secretary general of Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad.

    "God willing, its destruction will be imminent," the Islamic republic's all-powerful leader said. "Continued resistance and hope for victory should be taken into consideration."

    Iran does not recognise Israel, and is a staunch backer of Palestinian Islamist militants.

    Tensions have soared between Iran and Israel over the past five years since hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad came to power.

    Ahmadinejad has drawn international condemnation by repeatedly predicting that Israel is doomed to disappear and dismissing the Holocaust as a "myth."

    Israel, the sole if undeclared nuclear power in the Middle East, has called for tougher action against Tehran over its controversial atomic programme and accuses it of seeking nuclear weapons, a charge Iran denies.
  2. Israel is not going anywhere. Neither is Iran. This crazy shouting match has been going on since the beginning of time and it will continue into the foreseeable future. No bombs, just bombastic behavior.
  3. Exactly, this is just rhetoric as always.
    Now the neocons will pickup on this , again, as well as other evil politicians with a hidden agenda and millions of stupid uneducated americans who still believe the government B.S. - e.g. that UBL is hiding somewhere or that Iran is close to getting nukes- will stand ready to be sent to Iran as cannon flesh for Israel. The fascist motherfucking neocons making sure their families stay at home-and profit from the laser bomb baby killings .
  4. Yes, we should all support the pacifist Iranian govt, which is developing peaceful uses of nuclear materials, which treats opposition with respect, holds fair elections, is at peace with all its neighbors...

    Maybe Obama should give his Peace Prize to Tehran...

    It's a lot more than a shouting match. Even if only one side is doing the shouting.

    It appears from statements out of Iran that they would like to start the end times war to usher in their Great Imam. When they get the bomb (and they will) they will either nuke Israel directly or give the bomb to one of their surrogates to do the dirty work.

    Either way, WWIII will begin as Russia, China and a host of other nations will become involved. It won't be over quick.

    To answer your question, the best investment is probably in a personal bomb shelter and stocks of non-perisable food and water as it relates to Iran.

    Remember the 60's?

    BTW, Iran could put a nuke on a scud, put it on a freighter and easily do an air-burst over the eastern U.S. That would knock out nearly all electronics, transportation and communications in 1/3 of the U.S.

    Is Obama up to defending the U.S. and our interests from this coming threat? I don't think so.

    Ow well

    65+ years w/o "MAJOR" violence/war has been a good run.
    I think the average for humanity has been around ~50 years or less

    We have too many bloody talking monkeys on this crowded planet anyway.
    At one point the branch will collapse and the feces will start flying.
