UK military steps up plans for Iran attack amid fresh nuclear fears

The Ministry of Defence believes the US may decide to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes at some key Iranian facilities. British officials say that if Washington presses ahead it will seek, and receive, UK military help for any mission, despite some deep reservations within the coalition government.

Time to Attack Iran
Why a Strike Is the Least Bad Option

Perpetual war

has always been the plan...9/11 got the ball rolling.

Why go to war?

What is the threat? What is victory? I don't how either country would be better off.

Silliness

Obama's ratings went up when "he" killed Bin Laden, and when "he" invaded Libya. That dimbulbs are loathe to kick a "War President" out of office is, unfortunately, idiotology 101.

Do you seriously believe the cockamamie story being told by the news? read "show more" - on YouTube.

actually, i believe most of them are psychopaths

i.e. they don't enjoy the suffering of others, but are simply indifferent to it.

Most govts today have come to be riddled with them.

Anti - Golden - Rule.

agreed, there is No doubt these yokers are psychopaths, that is what all sadist are, they know very well that they are causing pain. Some govts are riddled with them, while others have become impotent.
We see these characters in real life and in fictional movies, as in Nicholas Cage movie - 8-MM, - in conclusion the villian Machine goes on to explain - that he was not abused as a child in any way, and that he tortures and kills people simply because he enjoys it.
Recently, we saw similar reports from Guantanamo and Abu-Ghuraib. In history we find the Spanish Inquisition, and Vlad the Impaler = Dracula.
The zionists broadcast the 'holocaust', obviously they know exactly what persecution means, and what are its effects. The zionist behavior throws into doubt the story or scale of the holocaust, - because - why do they commit the worse crimes on the Palestinians. And, why do the european govts make it a punishable offense if someone questions some aspects of the holocaust story ?
When the blocked inhabitants of Gaza were being bombed in Dec'08 many Isra'hellis were watching from the hills nearby, and having a party, enjoying the spectacle, laughing & applauding.
These yokers are Anti-Golden-Rule.

Israel’s Big Bluff

"The Israeli government has been openly threatening Iran with attack for years, and we have learned not to take their outbreaks of war hysteria too seriously. During the last year of George W. Bush’s final term in office, there was heightened speculation that Tel Aviv was pressuring Washington to launch such an attack, and indeed it appears Vice President Dick Cheney argued for precisely that, albeit to no avail."

at the same time they (zionist) make it look so real that it can not be taken likely, - and this is their strategy, to blackmail the world, specially america.

I was told a long time ago

"when the insiders from Israel...take the money from the stock markets -- the attack can happen".

ENOUGH OF THIS BALONEY! Things are bad enough already without wannabe town criers! You make it sound like troops are mobilizing, when this is 100% sabre rattling! Go join MSNBC or CNN and lick Turner's boots! Sheesh! It IS bad, but just the facts, PLEASE!

I suppose "looming" would be a better choice, but I saw imminent used here before and people didn't freak out -_-

Thank you

I think the new title is more accurate. Don't mean to knock the message, I actually hadn't encountered this news story before, so thank you for posting it. However, the headline made me think that things were even worse than they actually were. Thanks again for the edit.

no problem. I just got really

no problem. I was really concerned when I originally titled it cuz I encountered article after article saying all this stuff
:|

Exactly! Same thing happened to me.

I guess that was the exact reaction that the media tried to engender - fear of impending apocalypse. I got that same feeling you did, and wished at that moment that I had about 20 kilos of silver and a 2 month supply of dry rations... :( Until I read enough to know that it wasn't as bad as I thought.

In the words of John Stewart when he was on O'Reily, I do really hate how the MSM "ratchets up the fear". Emergencies are important to know about, but the MSM makes everything seem like a screaming emergency... It really does send people into a panic. God forbid, I can only imagine the headline that an actual terrible thing happening would produce.

Thanks again for all the links, it's good to see coverage from multiple sources. Sorry if I overreacted before, I don't mean to discourage your good news sourcing.

haha ya, it's good to know

haha ya, it's good to know more people get that feeling. I didn't mean to be like MSM - also I've legit only slept like 5 hours the last 3 days cuz of school (which is why I'm up now) and usually read a lot of news when Im procrastinating (hence the variety of articles). Probably not unlike yourself, I believe a war with Iran would be a huge disaster and elevate to WW3....I wonder if people will read this whole thread o.O

Agreed!

Huge disaster it would be. Best not to think about it!

I used to look at a lot more news, but it only made me depressed - back in 2001 after the attacks I was literally glued to CNN... was so depressed due to world events back then, and all the crap they were spewing made it worse.

These days I most often find news through DP, since many people are sifting thru the garbage to find some worthwhile stories. The DP in some ways acts as an excellent news curator and filters out a lot of hogwash. I don't blame people for getting scared by reading the news, it's what "they" are looking to effect. Never as bad as it seems, even when it is actually bad.

Thanks again for the news tip, try not to let the MSM eat too much of your time now :)

War is always the answer

when nothing else seems to go the way of the elites. World is breaking down, and the elites think this next world war will cleanse the earth so they can rebuild and take over again. Unfortunately, this next world war will not end well, the elites will die alongside the rest of us. Make it right with God, He is the only solution.
