YOu seem to be using a piece of Iranian propaganda to prove your point, even making it a bit more dramatic than it was the case. The humanitarian aid from Israel didn't matter that much with the help they had received from all the other countries. The Iranian authorities were able to afford refusing the Israeli help thus achieving a propaganda effect. We have no positive evidence to think otherwise. And certainly this does not constitute positive evidence to invade a big country causing the death of millions of Iranians and tens of thousands of Western soldiers, which (having been to Iran and having talked to the people) I think would be inevitable.
I'm not sure how it got turned around by my stance isn't to invade Iran. I really don't think that's needed at this point IF europe follows through with forcing Iran to see the bad economic results from pursuing a nuclear arms program. I just don't they will. Just as Germany, France, Russia and China broke the U.N. sanctions imposed upon Iraq, they would not only to this again but probably not even allow them pass the U.N. security consul.
My point is that the europeans do not want Iran to have nukes but they're not willing to do anything to stop them. This includes both militarily and economically. And ,without sounding too melodramatic, when a nuke goes off in London or New York or Amsterdam, we'll all sit around and bitch about "Bush not doing enough" or "Blair should have stopped Iran" or "Why didn't Dominique de Villepin do enough to prevent countries like Iran from passing nukes..."
Just makes me angry that the world is less secure because certain people don't want their business dealing with Iran touched. We all sit around and bitch about Bush and Big Oil, well, what about big business in europe and the effect of Iranian sanctions would have on them?
Regarding Israel and Iran. I'm not a big defender of Israel but there is no way any one can convince me that somehow someone in Iran wouldn't use a nuke against Israel. I don't picture Iran "attacking" Israel knowing that Israel has at least 200 nukes but a radical leader in Iran not caring and attacking Israel anyway???? hmmm....maybe I've been reading too many Tom Clancy novels.
Personally, I hope that the situation with Iran doesn't result in military action by the U.S. or europe. However, a nuclear stockpile sitting in Iran and another in Israel, that is a small fire burning next to a tanker truck.
