Re: Iran, International threat or only threat to Israel ?

Rule of thumb: Violent oppressive regimes tend to be anti Israel.

The worse the country to more hostile it is to Israel.

Iran is no exception - but it has no border with Israel, so it can only do limited damage. Iraq, Afghanistan and the gulf states are much closer and face a bigger Iranian threat (read wikileaks).

Re: Iran, International threat or only threat to Israel ?

Is there anyone who seriously thinks Iran is only a threat to Israel? They want to be the regional superpower. None of their neighbours want that.

A) Weapons delivered by Iran to Hamas are paid by people in Saudi Arabia who support Hamas

B) That Iranian weapons are found in the hands of "Taliban" (in reality various movements opposed to the government) is not surprising as Iran delivers weapons to whomever pays. The only thing I do not believe is that they donated the stuff ! The Western forces now only have to find out who financed the deal ! Possibly the same nice western ally as above ?

Logic missing. The violent oppressive regime of Reza Shah Pahlavi was PRO-Israel, and the regime in North Korea is not partiularily anti-Israel neither is the one in Burma

In regard to the countries on the Arabian Gulf, the Mullahcracy of Tehran up to now has not been as aggressive as the old Imperial Regime.

This indeed may change when Iran goes forward on its road from a Mullahcratic dictatorship into a full military dictatorship.

So sorry, but "Pashosh" gets one thing right, and that is that Iran already IS a "regional superpower". It is militarily stronger than the regional countries between Kalkutta and Tunis, with the noteable exceptions of India, Israel and Turkey.

If she wanted to to and I really hope she doesn't Israel could wipe Iran off the map in a couple of hours! Israel has nuclear weapons , Iran is just trying to build them.
