  1. JERUSALEM: Iran is sending two warships into the Mediterranean Sea, Israel's foreign minister said on Wednesday, labelling the act a "provocation" the Jewish state cannot ignore for long.

    "Tonight two Iranian warships are supposed to cross the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean Sea on their way to Syria," Foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman said, speaking at a conference of American Jewish leaders in Jerusalem.

    Lieberman said Iranian warships cruising past Israel's coast was something that had not occurred for many years and was a "provocation that proves the self confidence and cheek of the Iranians is growing from day-to-day."

    "To my sorrow the international community is not dealing with these repeated Iranian provocations," the hardline minister said, referring to a recent visit by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the Lebanese border with Israel.

    The US should just let Israel deal with their own problems. In a matter of hours it could all be over.
  4. I know, we're broke and the Somlian's are all we have left. Cut a deal and release the pirate we convicted today to 33 years of us tax payer subsidized prison. Let him and his gang of bandits do their thing.

  5. I agree 100%. The volcano has been fuming for many years.

    USA has been stopping Israel since long time and now the situation is such that Israel-Iran War could lead to World War 3. If Israel would have been free-mind many years back it would have been a small war.

    USA has a bad habit of delaying/blocking (example USA is bankrupt) and then it is out of control.

    Finish it off. What are we waiting for? Rest in peace.
  6. Who cares?

    The whole world will be muslim anyway

    Watch the below documentary by Nom Chomsky.

    Maybe sheeple like you will learn something

  7. Israel is a small volcano. It cannot destroy the world.

    Volcanic ash is good for the growth of grass and other trees. The African endless grass plains are result of volcanic ash and Africa has the best wildlife/animals.
  8. it's not the size of the volcano it's the force.

  9. Israeli need for war and bloodshed has already cost United Stated Trillion dollars and many American lives

    Trillion dollars in terms of annual gifts, military gifts and hardware plans, lost opportunities etc


    "You have to ask yourself, are we funding an arms race on both sides? I have a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel as a democratic nation, as, you know, a fountain of peace and a fountain of democracy within the Middle East. But at the same time, I don't think funding both sides of the arm race, particularly when we have to borrow the money from China to send it to someone else. We just can't do it anymore.

    Israel has the third most powerful armed forces in the world. They can take care of themselves. The US just doesn't want to deal with the chaos it would cause for all of our corporate interest in the region.

    We should just allow a free market, and allow the natural progression of things to occur. In no more than 2 days time, all would be settled in the middle east. Israel can fund itself anyway. There are more Israeli companies listed on the Nasdaq than there are US companies.
