Israel's "Iran attack rehearsal"

Does Israel's recent rehearsal on an attack on Iran make you acutely nervous? It makes me very uneasy. * Even if they do not intend to make a reality of an attack, such an obvious rattling of a saber could cause an unintended reaction by some party somewhere with unthinkable consequences. Any consequence with a nuclear weapon would be catastrophic.

Whyyy would you rehearse something without any intention of doing it? All the language that Israel's being using about Iran...and all of the threats from their ol' buddy -- our loverly country, the USA...says we wanna attack them. Congress recently was discussing putting Iran under siege -- not attacking them, but surrounding them...from the air and the sea, and not letting any stuff go in or out of that place. They said it was to put pressure on them to stop their nuclear program, even though there's still no evidence that they're trying to make bombs. And because Iran is a proud country, of course they posture and threaten back... It makes me uneasy, yes it does. Mostly because there's so many consquences which would be , beyond our control if either one of our countries...Israel, or America, decides to use aggression toward Iran. Economically, for one, whatever repercussions Iran might dish out because they were attacked for another...what kind of power vacuum it might create in the middle east...probably even more crap that we can't even think of besides the fact that we have no right to try to harm another culture over a SUSPICION.

Israel's actions hinges on what Turkey will do. Will Turkey allow Israel's aircraft to fly over her airspace? To perform the attack, that would most certainly be a requirement, unless America is involved in the attack somehow using one of her carriers. * The economic war is already underway. We have an economic embargo against Iran already. * Admittedly, Israel and the USA are more than a match to Iran technically. What I fear is Iran's unconventional response. Their civilization is much older than the USA's. I am certain they have allies or something hiding in Mexico. * Americans are incompetent at telling a brown skinned Spanish speaker from a illegal Mexican. I will bet dollars to doggie turds that Hezbollah has not been sitting put in the Middle East.
