    "What do you specifically & precisely mean under broad term `imminent threat` . . . " - TonyL Nothing 'broad' about the term Tony. Imminent means: "ready to take place; especially : hanging threateningly over one's head 'was in imminent danger of being run over, Had the Egyptians been within days of an invasion of Israel in 1967 that would have been an 'imminent' threat. There is nothing 'vague' or 'broad' about the meaning of the word. ". . . emanating from the radical Iranian maniacs towards Israel?" A hypothetical threat which might exist some time in the distant future is not "imminent." TonyL, the reason why I presented the current case of a Preemptive War, the one Bush launched to take out the non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, is that not only was that "preemptive' war not necessary, and it preempted nothing; it also has turned into a quagmire which has turned into a debacle for the fools who started it. Now other fools want another unnecessary folly.
