Iran is already fighting USA and Israel --NURA & STS

Reader comment on item: Prepare to attack [Iran]
in response to reader comment: Who did Iran Attack?:

Iran hasn't openly attacked, but they are funding terrorism in Iraq and against innocent Israelis.

Don't you get it, Nura? Iran doesn't care who they hurt, even Muslims. The goal to get Israel is as much of a secular one as it religious. They aren't out to "liberate" Jerusalem as STS says. They want the Mediterranean so they can harass oil tankers coming from the Dardenelles, and they will bully their neighbors.

It's not just Israel that's in danger. Jordan, Palestine, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE all have reason to worry. If Iran got a nuke, they'd all want one too.

For their own safety.

Unless, they are ready to embrace Shia' Islam.

Are you not aware that Iran wants control of the region?

That would mean more trouble for the Gulf nations than it ever would for the USA.

If Iran struck Israel with nuclear weapons, they would just kill more Muslims than Jews from radiation fall-out, to say nothing of Israel's massive military success against invaders, historically speaking.

So this nonsense about Muslim unity against everyone else is ridiculous.

I hope others come on here and post responses to the seriously flawed arguments by yourself and STS.
