    This is goddamn scary, Leon Panetta is locked and loaded to go to war with Iran already, and the language is eerily similar to the language that got us into Iraq. Panetta says Iran is 1 year off of developing a nuke and that we will do whatever necessary to stop it. We will soon see who is really pulling the strings, and i suspect Panetta and the military will get their wish.m Watch the start of this video and the interview with Scott Pelley and Leon Panetta.

    The same day's CBS Evening News relayed Defense Secretary Panetta warning that Iran could have a nuclear weapon within a year:

    SCOTT PELLEY: The Secretary of Defense says tonight that the United States will not allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon. In an interview with CBS News, Leon Panetta says that, despite efforts to disrupt their nuclear program, the Iranians have reached a point where they can assemble a bomb in a year or potentially less. ...

    Panetta told us that Iran needs only one year to build a nuclear weapon.

    So are you saying that Iran could have a nuclear weapon in 2012?

    LEON PANETTA, DEFENSE SECRETARY: It would be, you know, sometime around the year that they would be able to do it, perhaps a little less. The one proviso, Scott, is if they have a hidden facility somewhere in Iran that may be enriching fuel. (hidden nuclear facilities we dont know about.... Does this Sound familiar?)

    PELLEY: So that they could develop a weapon even more quickly than we believe?

    PANETTA: And faster, that's correct.

    The Defense Secretary soon hinted at the possibility of a military strike by the United States:

    PANETTA: If they proceed and we get intelligence that they're proceeding with developing a nuclear weapon, then we will take whatever steps are necessary to stop them.

    PELLEY: Including military steps.

    PANETTA: There are no options that are off the table.

    Maybe there is something to that Mayan calendar after all. :(

    Not to worry, our resident Odumbo apologists have assured me that he will never go to war. I mean he has a Nobel Peace prize for crying out loud.

    So what are you saying
    that as soon as Iran has a nuke they will bomb Israel and commit Suicide
    so Israel has to bomb Iran first LOL

    You are a PURE CONCENTRATED idiot and warmonger,

    People like you lack the most basic Logic pattern in your head, you survive solely on automated autonomic nervous system :p :p

    That's a little joke for the educated among us. :)

    I saw LUCRUM on another thread support attack on Iran based on supposed WMD intel.

    so how did he change his stance so quickly

    Let them build a nuke. Then IF they fire one we smoke the entire country with 2 dozen of them. Until then we have no business there.

    Simple as that.
