    Sometimes. Though this is not one of them. The US is hardly under threat from Iran, except in the narrow sense that the US prefers to completely control the worlds oil supplies regardless of where that oil is going to or from, hence all their policy focus in the Mid East since WW2. As for Israel. Rather than act like a first prize fool perhaps you should consider the views of war loving Israeli defence minister Ehud Barak [widely considered to be anything but a fool and generally presumed to be in possession of the most up to date intelligence on Iran] just a few weeks ago: In an interview with the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronoth, the Israeli defense minister was quoted as saying that "Iran does not constitute an existential threat against Israel" and that "I am not among those who believe Iran is an existential issue for Israel." He was responding to a question about Iran's nuclear program. "Israel is strong, I don't see anyone who could pose an existential threat," said Barak, who added that he did view Iran as a challenge to the whole world. http://jta.org/news/article/2009/09/17/1007966/barak-iran-not-existential-threat Morris. Those anti aging testosterone jabs are having unfortunate side effects. Perhaps you might want consider to reducing the dosage, just a tad?

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran
