Netanyahu Pushes the United States to Make War on Iran: Will Obama Say No?

  • Like I said yesterday everyone wants us to shed our blood but wont be willing to shed theirs. Screw Israel for even making such a remark about the safety of our soldiers.

  • The Ayatollah, the Supreme Leader of Iran, has very clearly stated nukes are against God. God forbids it. He is their supreme fucking leader. He has no way of changing that position as he clearly says it is against Gods will.

  • No i dont think he will, i dont believe he will go all in, but they have already played around with the Idea for a very long time. its been on the news for the past year. thats how the Zionists normally starts their wars.

    the end game here.

    a large scale attack on Iran, means Russia will retaliate what im worried about is the 150 nukes Israel (dosent have)it will set fire to the middle eas, but it will also end Israel as we know it.But "top Jews" will just repopulate America More..
