why does russia care about iranian oil? it has way more than iran. its the richest in oil in the whole world, and sells the most too.
Please explain HOW the Isrealis would succeed. Do you know how many risks were involved with the 1981 strikes? If Saddam even fired off a dozen or so SAMs or sent in a squadron of planes after the Israelis, the Israelis would have ran out of fuel and crashed or been shot down. And the Iranians have the S-300 guarding their nuclear plant as well (please don't mention that the Israeli special forces will take them out because I am pretty sure that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have every inch of territory covered). If airstrikes really were that easy, the Israelis and even the Americans would have launched them long ago.Lavi said:The reason why I believe that Israel would strike Iran is first and foremost that it did so in Iraq 1981, the situation was not that much different then. The Israelis usually vary the way they strikes, though, meaning that e.g. special forces that where ground inserted could be used this time.
