Iran, Russia & China vs. the US, UK & Israel | Will USA & Israel go to War with Iran? WWIII - Justifiable? Inevitable?

Will the US go to war with Iran?

The United States of America & Israel (in addition to their allies) have continually threatened Tehran (the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran) with the "option" of a military strike, based on the falsified & unjust allegation that Iran's nuclear program may include plans of a covert military agenda (against the West and Israel).

Iran has vehemently refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it most certainly has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

In response to the allegations made by the US & Israel,officials in Iran have promised a crushing response to any military strike against the country, clearly warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East, possibly prompting another world war.

This hub explores the reasoning that the US & Israel have put forth to justify their unjustifiable plans of attacking, invading and destabilizing Iran.

3 questions that need to be answered!

1. Is there any evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weaponry?

2. Even if it was, is Iran the only country 'developing', or even holding, nuclear weapons in the Middle East? How about in the World?

3. Assuming Iran is indeed working on developing nukes, are Israel and US justified in objecting to such an act?

It seems just like yesterday the public, or those who care to know, were hearing about the United States invading Iraq and Afghanistan, and now here we are again - over a decade later - with America intending to occupy Iran in the very near future. The main point to note here is that the US had no valid grounds to invade Afghanistan back in 2001, neither did it have any acceptable reason to take over Iraq back then, and it definitely has no logical, rational, or humane reason to go to war with Iran now.

I think its firstly important to understand the reason the American administration puts forth in justification of it going to war with yet another country with no justifiable, or discernible cause. The US accuses Iran of developing nuclear weapons, and as such it is seen as a threat to the rest of the world.

Keeping this in mind, it is absolutely essential to ask a few questions. After reading numerous articles on this topic, and watching a plethora of news clips (including those by relatively unbiased news stations), I have yet to see these questions addressed by the politicians so dead set on going to war with Iran.

Firstly, is there any evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weaponry?

Secondly, even if it was, is Iran the only country 'developing', or even holding, nuclear weapons in the Middle East? How about in the World?

Thirdly, assuming Iran is indeed working on developing nukes, are Israel and US justified in objecting to such an act?


Pat Buchanan Implicitly States that Going to War with Iran would be a 'Disaster' for Not Just the Middle East, but the Entire World:


International Atomic Energy Agency

The IAEA website gives this explanation of their work across the world:

'... Nuclear experts, radiation specialists, and engineers help countries to meet safety standards at nuclear plants, or to more safely manage and transport radioactive material...'.

Double Standards | Various countries in the World That Hold Nuclear Weapons

The main reason Obama is posed to go to war with Iran is due to Israels insistence that Iran could potentially be a threat if they possess nuclear weapons. Hence to ensure the 'safety' of the middle east, and by extension the world, it is apparently essential to disarm Iran from its imaginary nuclear weapons.

I use words like 'apparently' and 'imaginary' simply due to the fact that all these allegations put forth by the Obama administration are entirely unfounded, and baseless. After conducting various investigations in 2011, and more in Jan 2012 (with meetings planned for Feb 2012), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was forced to admit that Iran did not contain any nuclear weapons (nor did it seem they were developing any).

Furthermore, even if we were to assume that Iran did indeed contain nukes, the way team Obama are pursuing this angle, one would assume that Iran is the only country in the world that is working on nuclear weaponry, right? This is not the all. In fact, not only do other countries in the world possess these weapons, but countries within the middle east (and surrounding areas) also hold nukes!

To make the situation worse, Israel, the single most vocal (whether it be direct or indirect, through America) place in the middle east, actually has the most nukes per capita than any other country.... in the WORLD .

Yes, you read it right! Israel has more nuclear weapons per person than America and Russia combined!!

This leads one to ask, even if Iran did develop nuclear weapons, Israel (and America, as America admittedly develops and utilises nukes) would be the last place in the world to have any logical, justifiable & moral stance against Iran for this reason!

Peter Lavelle on Crosstalk - Is War with Iran Inevitable?

Another point to address is the fact that Korea, Russia, China, Pakistan, Israel, America, the UK & France also have nuclear weapons. Which means that if America or Israel did sincerely have an issue with nukes, they should first and foremost give up their own supply, then should crackdown on every other country with nuclear weapons.

The question still remains, why single out Iran?

It seems that Iran is seen as much more of a threat than any of those other countries. The sad situation is that most of the public (even those that keep up to date on current affairs) are oblivious to the real agendas of the governments, hence pledge their blind support to the administrations, effectively signing away their freedoms & other peoples lives .


Russia & China Support Iran & Will Take Measures to Defend it.

When the US & Israel has initiated wars with other countries in the Middle East in the past, there has not exactly been an out pour of support from neighboring countries, leaving countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, etc. completely vulnerable to attack. Iran, however is an entirely different case altogether.

Major General Zhang Zhaozhong, professor from the Chinese National Defense University, specifically outlined that China would not hesitate to protect Iran against a military strike by the US & its allies.

Even if this means the start of the Third World War.

In addition, Russia also pledged its support for Iran & in no uncertain terms warned the US of the destructive path it is intending to take. The Russian Ambassador to the UN (Vitaly Churkin) vehemently criticized any plans of attacking Iran, describing the measure as “a very dangerous scenario” which could lead to a “regional catastrophe.


The Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, said:

“Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one."

People asked “O Prophet! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?”

The Prophet said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.”

{Sahih Bukhari}

Ending Thoughts...

Despite all the reasons why this measure should not be taken by the US & Israel, it seems that the US is putting forth its best efforts to ensure that a military attack on Iran is initiated. The Islamic Republic of Iran & its allies are adamant that any such attack will never be ignored, and it will in fact start a regional war (if not a world war).

The main concern that people overlook with regards to this scenario is that should the Third World War start, its going to be unlike anything ever seen before - this time the major countries involved in the dispute are nuclear armed countries (Russia, US, Israel, etc), which means that entire generations of families can be totally wiped off the face of the Earth, with those surviving being highly likely to have lasting effects for generations to come!

This is a catastrophic event if it is ever allowed to happen, the only way forward is surely to make yourself heard by your governments, and make it clear that this is not a move that you, the people of America, condone or find acceptable. We should all raise awareness of this dangerous game being played without the public's consent, to any and everyone that you can converse with.

In the end all anyone can do is propagate the truth, bearing in mind that we should feel a responsibility to our fellow humans, whether they are in the Middle East or Africa, Australia or Europe, or indeed, the US or China!

´´If an Arab wants to kill me or my family I will destroy without prejudice.´´

The fact is that the only killing terrorists are the zionists from the zionist satanic west and zionist satanic entity israhell. Putin has risen to confront you with your tyranni and agression towards mankind.

But from the comments i can see that the sheep are still sleeping. Deaf, dumb, blind while the zionists are raping them without lubricant.

Actually if US and its so called allies are ridiculous in their self proclaim super power and if at all they are not tire with war we definitely exhausted with all this conflict that purposely ruins the entire world.Iran is signatory member so.

Jesus is all in one on January 01, 2014:

War is not good but necessary sometimes.when Germany under Hitler invaded Poland should UK and France just keep quiet no they had to defend the same vain US,UK and Israel cannot keep quiet when a nation is planning to destroy another one.nations that support terrorism and pose a threat to global security and peace must be put in check.if US decides not to stick its head in matters round the world that pose a threat to peace and security,then we are in for trouble because no other nation has the resources,influence and power to check the excesses of other america is like the world policeman.even though america and britain and any other country does not help israel,israel being the country of the Almighty God cannot be destroyed by any force no matter how powerful it is.Jesus the all in one will dave israel from the fiery attacks of the arab world

Weson on August 30, 2013:

Talking about Iran having a nuclear bombs , one might think that, a country like iran is always wanting to wipe Israel off the world map. Would any one think that, that is funny enough ? That is what Israel don't want to happen. By God 's will, The God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac will protects its choosen people , Israel. I am not bias at all, but i hope in the near future , that Jesus will rules as it was mentioned in the revelation of John at patmos Island.. Come Lord Jesus christ with your Goldenrod.

after Islamic regime in 1979 Iran is facing international embargoes and nuclear weapon development and USA and Israel are trying to destabilize middle east ,attack on Iran will be disastrous and will fuel another world war like situation.

Iran is afraid of her security and sovereignty of the nation.

The world should prohibit USA and Israel form such adventure.

CONSCIOUSNINJA (author) from Planet Earth on December 28, 2012:


I am quite sure that I did not pose the question 'Is Iran developing nuclear weaponry', rather I asked the question, '..even if it WAS, does the US and Israel have any justifiable right to object, and secondly, would Iran be the only country in the world to develop nukes...?'

Obviously you have misread or intentionally blanked out vital parts of this article otherwise you would know and understand that by no means do I have hatred of the US, far less any reason to fear it - in fact I have family & dear friends that reside in the US, and as my article reiterates again and again, I do not blame the people of the US for its governments perverse, insubordinate and unjustifiable actions.

My article ends with a plea to all people to be vocal towards their governments and make their voices heard - we should not be interfering in other countries affairs except under extreme human rights abuses.

USMale on December 27, 2012:

Early on in your article you say the alleged accusations against Iran and its nuclear ambitions are unjust and false. Later you refer to the same as a question. "Is Iran developing nuclear weaponry?" A declaration and a question about the same subject cannot exist. And its also the most amazing thing that posters like Sal here have so much knowledge of underworld dealings and conspiracies---9/11 was a hoax, Osama has been dead for X amount of time, pictures of OBL are fake, the guy helping the US was paid. And then he removes all doubt of his agenda with his childlike name calling. Its clear to see that these posts and the article itself are borne of drivel and hatred of the US. But that's quite ok. "Let them hate as long as they fear"--- Caligula

Darren on November 15, 2012:

I am very amused by the comments posted by the liberal tree hugers. If all of the countries were minding their own business and then all of a sudden Russia said they were going to build a bomb to exterminate the UK because of something they did to the Russians 800 years ago, as a very close ally to the UK would you not want to help them stop the Russians from building this bomb? This is what is going on with Iran. They are so mad at Israel for something that happened hundreds of years ago that they threaten every day that given the opportunity they would wipe Israel off the map. The reason we are not trying to attack all of the other countries with Nuclear weapons is because none of these countries are threatening to attack other countries unprovoked. A lot of the Muslim countries have become very unstable lately and most harbor Islamist Extremists. Hamas can sit there and bomb Israel every day and no one says anything. When Israel finally retaliates to defend itself all of a sudden they are bullies in the eyes of other countries. China will not attack the US nor will Russia. Economically they would not survive. Not to mention the only way they could pull off a win would be to bring the fight to our soils. They would fail before they got here. No country could penetrate the US and UK Navys or Supreme Air Dominance. Israel is our close Ally and there is no way the US will stand by and let them get wiped off the map. Do I like war? No, but it is essential to maintance global stability. There are bad people everywhere and just like the bad people on our own soils that need to be put in prison or executed, so do extremists that plan to attack other countries unprovoked. There is no way you can sit here and tell me that North Korea just wants World Peace!!!!!!!!

To the writer...It's people like you who allowed Hitler to come to power!And history proves you'll do it again. People like you and your followers where the geeks in school who were picked on and now that you feel like you have a voice you show just why you were picked on...go figure!

Zubair Ahmed on September 21, 2012:

Hi Hinazelle,

Another nice hub, as usual there are the good old objectors and some who are willing to look for the alternative viewpoint in the comments you've received.

No doubt everything that Hitler did in his time, people below him and in Germany at the time agreed was correct. Only history tells us otherwise, a similar situation will arise when the Empire (like the many other empires before it) is no longer the power broker. Truth will prevail maybe not now but in the decades to come, many will come to know the truth behind all these wars etc.

Unfortunately many people are too willing to accept what is fed to them by their local media channels. It is easier to point-fingers and criticize other people and countries yet - no that willing to look at the wrong we do ourselves.

Just look at history - how many wars have been fought by the West in comparison to those instigated and carried out by middle eastern or by countries in the East.

Keep up the good work

Israeli citizen on August 24, 2012:

Dear Writer,

As an Israeli citizen, who lived hear her entire life, I must tell you that you can't write about our life and safety without experiencing it by your self. There warn't a single decade here without a war. We,as a small country felt so much pain and lost through the years that you can only imagine. Sending our children to the army at 18 and losing lots of them to battles can only increase your desire to live and protect your country. Israel might have a nuclear weapon ( Which was never proven) but we have never threatened to destroyed an entire country. Even if Iran won't use it to the purposes they claim, there's a still great threat this weapon will end up in the hands of Al- Qauida, or some other terrorist groups, that will use this weapon. And then, not Israel nor the U.S will be able to fight back, as there aren't clear boundaries that you fight against. Next time you write such a thing, I advise you to come and stay here is Israel for a month and feel what we feel as a country subjected to constant threats.

Sal on June 17, 2012:

They media brainwashes you and reflects the way you think. Unless and until you haven't been there you do not know squat. 911 and whatever bs blame they put on the so called terrorists!! The pictures they showed people of obl were fake. And the guy who helped Us was yet another sucker for cash. I'm pretty sure you still don't get but I'll let you know one thing. Government that's been lying to you since the beginning and still is, actually makes me sad that you guys can't think for youtselfs

Sal on June 17, 2012:

You dj Gonzales sir are right in a way but I find you really stupid, ignorant and arrogant. Ask me why? Osaka bin laden haha obliged has been dead a long time ago its just the way Us works. First destabalize the government of any opposing country. For example lets take Pakistan, have you seen his freaking mansions!!!! What I am trying to say is if you did not live in any opposing countries as a child then you have no idea about their people and how the government works. Its good that you fought for your country but did you ever stay, did you ever look outside the box. I'm guessing no

DjGonzales from Middle America on June 05, 2012:

Let me just start by saying that you did a good job of researching your information. But unfortunately that information was somewhat incorrect. Let's go down the list:

"US had no valid grounds to invade Afghanistan back in 2001" - This doesn't explain that less than a day after 9/11 CIA and State Department members were on their way to Afghanistan. There was irrefutable evidence that Osama Bin Laden was in Afghanistan. Operation Anaconda was the military operation to seize Tora Bora, where it was believed that OBL was hiding out.

"neither did it have any acceptable reason to take over Iraq back then" - When I was a civilian I also believed that the US had no reason to invade Iraq, but after being in the military and understanding how the world works I can see what the mentality was. There were no nukes, and there was very little verifiable intelligence that Saddam had anything to do with terrorists, but Saudi Arabia was becoming more brazen and the US wanted to keep them in line. By conquering Iraq, the US showed Saudi Arabia, and the rest of the region, that we were firmly in control. Not to mention the MASSIVE oil reserves in Iraq. So, to the layman, yes, we shouldn't have gone into Iraq. But to a realist, it was the right move.

"Firstly, is there any evidence that Iran is developing nuclear weaponry?" -

An article that shows President Ahmadinejad and a multitude of nuclear centrifuges. Read it. It refers to a remark about Iran continuing its uranium enrichment.

"The question still remains, why single out Iran?" - This is probably the simplest to answer: Because Iran is a state-sponsor of terrorism. Why do you think the US is so gun-ho about terrorists in Pakistan? Because Pakistan is notoriously terrorism-friendly. Read my page in it I talk about how Iran helped create and to this day supports Hezbollah. A terrorist organization responsible for the US Embassy and Marine Barracks bombings in Beirut. The reason why the world is focused on Iran is because, like North Korea, they have openly come out against the West. So common sense dictates that if your enemy has nuclear weapons you are in deep trouble! It's that simple. Our world is zero-sum, realpolitik, whatever you want to call it. We are only after our own good, and that will never change.

"we should feel a responsibility to our fellow humans, whether they are in the Middle East or Africa, Australia or Europe" - WRONG. I will be responsible for the millions of Americans that I and my fellow servicemembers protect. If an Arab wants to kill me or my family I will destroy without prejudice. You remember that while you sit at your expensive computer complaining about America, there are real people out there bleeding for you, making sure the 1st amendment continues to allow you to spit your un-patriotic and unlearned bias.

P.S. - Ron Paul is exactly like Woodrow Wilson. Woodrow Wilson's pacifism directly led to World War I. It was men like Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Reagan that allow you sit there and criticize.

Nalliah Thayabharan on May 19, 2012:

When Putin was elected as President of Russia in 2000, Russia was bankrupt. The nation owed $16.6 billion to the Rothschild-run International Monetary Fund while its foreign debt to the Rothschild-controlled Paris & London Club Of Creditors was over 36 billion dollars.

But Putin took advantage of the current boom in world oil prices by redirecting a portion of the profits of Russia’s largest oil producer Gazprom so as to pay off the country’s debt. The continual surge in oil prices greatly accelerated Russia’s capacity to restore financial sovereignty. By 2006 Putin had paid off Russia’s debt to the Rothschilds. Russia’s financial dependence on the Zionist financiers was now over.

Rothchild's agent Mikhail Khordorkovsky gained his fortune along with many other oligarchs, by exploiting the Yeltsin era’s privatizations. With the backing of Jacob Rothschild, Khordorkovsky started the bank Menatep Banking Group just prior to the fall of Soviet Union in 1990. The Menatep Banking Group was associated with the Rothschild-Soros Carlyle Group.

In 1995, Khordorkovsky bought Yukos Oil for $350 million. He became one of the world’s richest men with a personal worth of at least $1 billion. In October of 2003 Khordorkovsky was arrested for embezzlement.

As most wealthy Zionists who use their financial power to subvert their host nation, Khordorkovsky set himself up as a critic of Putin’s efforts to unite Russia politically and culturally. Khordorkovsky spent millions of dollars to overthrow Putin by funding “democratic reforming parties” by which Zionists take control of their host nation.

In February of 2004, right after Khordorkovsky’s arrest, Khordorkovsky’s Menatep Bank was revealed to be operating out of the Isle of Man, a UK offshore tax haven. At this time, Menatep offered Yukos shares to Putin in exchange for Khordorkovsky’s freedom. But Putin did not need to wheel & deal with the Zionist financiers. Putin simply nationalized Yukos Oil shortly after the Menatep offer.

The British press reported that Khordorkovsky’s shares in Yukos Oil were passed to Jacob Rothschild just prior to Khordorkovsky’s arrest.

But Menatep denied that Jacob Rothschild had any power in the Group. Their statement declared that Jacob Rothschild had close links with Menatep only through the Open Russia Foundation whose trustee membership included Henry Kissinger. But Menatep failed to mention that the Open Russia Foundation was founded by Yukos Oil.

There is no man feared more by Zionists than Russian President Vladimir Putin.And while the Zionist West and its lackeys at the Saudi-led Gulf Cooperation Council would have us believe that armed jihadists in Syria who are murdering innocent native civilians are “lovers of democracy,” Putin remains unshaken in his defense of International law.

Because Bashar al-Assad has intensified Syria’s policy of resisting Zionist imperialism ever since taking over the reins from his father, Hafez al-Assad, in 2000, International Zionists and their shill, the USA, pursuing its habitual violent program of regime change this time in Syria in order to install a pro-Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist dictatorship in Damascus. Since then, Assad has grown the economy at a healthy rate of 5% a year. Since then, Syria is debt free and will not allow any Rothschild banks. And you’ll be hard pressed to find any McDonald’s or Pizza Huts in Syria…it’s forbidden territory for multinational Zionist-funded corporations.

And since then, due to Assad’s independent, self-directed, economic development – a program shared by all US regime change targets – the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist globalist bankers and their corporate pawns are being thwarted from privatizing and politically Zionizing the industries and government of the sovereign nation of Syria.

The Zionist influenced US State Department put forward this very same Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist banker’s agenda when it stated that “Syria refuses to join an increasingly interconnected global economy.”

The Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs, of course a Zionist, Jeffrey Feltman, highlighted Jewish Finance Capital’s plan for “democracy” in Syria — (READ: The “humanitarian” BOMBING of Syrian civilians) — in his recent testimony before the Zionist-led Senate Committee on Foreign Relations said “Bashar al-Assad is destroying Syria and destabilizing the region. An orderly democratic transition that removes Assad from power and restores stability is clearly in the United States’ interests. It will support our goals of promoting democracy and human rights.”

It’s the same old LIE: The Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist West is framing the conflict in Syria as one between the “lovers of democracy” led by the Free Syrian Army and a murderous tyrant…so very, very far from the facts on the ground as Russia and the Syrian government have been contesting all along.

This has been verified by the Observer Mission recently sent to Syria by the Arab League which stated in paragraph 75 of its suppressed Report “There have been incidents that include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the police, members of the media and fuel pipelines. Some of those attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by other armed opposition groups,”.

While the Illuminati Ashkenazi Khazar Zionist Master Plan for a Greater Israel extending from Tel Aviv to Tehran – from the Nile to the Euphrates – by fragmenting Israel’s bordering nations into competing militias and warlords, Vladimir Putin remains firm and uncompromising.

You can hear it all the way from Moscow to Tel Aviv:

A clear and resounding “Nyet” flaming forth from Vladimir Putin, the world’s foremost and only defender against Zionism’s warmongering, world-destroying, ugly designs!

The thing I find most baffling is that so many Israeli's and USA citizens want to see a war with Iran! Do none of them not realise that this is one War that could and - probably would- escalate quite rapidly into an unstoppable 'world conflagration' Do these people who support an attack on Iran ever ponder what may be the outcome if it all goes 'pear shaped' rather quickly?? If it goes Nuclear (and it very well might) There will be hundreds of millions of people 'frazzled'in the blink of an eye sleep tight and think about what the hawks are asking to happen AND FOR WHAT!

david robinson on May 01, 2012:

Why doesn't america just stay the hell out of everyones business. uk and france, nato as well!! None of our bloody business. IF someone starts a war then yeah lets go and help but don't go invading countries cos one man is there (osama bin laden) or cos they have loadsa oil and we scared they wont share cos we pissed em off (iraq)!!!

The way I see it, I've lost 2 family members and 3 friends in the last 10 years cos of military service in the middle east, we've spent BILLIONS of pounds over there, and suddenly we are in HUGE recession all of us...oh except the countries that didn't intervene like china etc that are actually doing much better financially now...mmmmmmm seems to me osama bin laden won after all cos he made the usa and allies do exactly what he wanted and broght down their economies :( sad but true. why oh why do we elect such stupid rulers!!!???

A-2Pointop ... thanks for the read and your comment... i think what we really need to be wishing & striving for is that the US is not heartless nor ruthless enough to go to war with yet another muslim country at the say so of israel.

A-2pointop on February 12, 2012:

I hope it never comes to the scale decribed in this article. I would think China has too much invested in the US just to protect Iran.

If China chooses to war with us on the side of Iran, then Japan and South Korea would be thrown in. North Korea would attack the South. Austraila would be involved. Saudi Arabia would take our side along with Turkey. Pakistan is not so much a friend to the US, but India would war with them if it got there.

This is a horrific thought. I hope if we do war with Iran, that other nations would show restraint, for all of our sakes. I would prefer everyone just go home and do their dishes.

Zubair Ahmed,

Thank you for your encouraging words!

It is very true - people need to realise the truth of what is happening under our very noses.. just today me and my husband were watching RT on youtube, and the sorts of lies those government individuals were telling whilst being interviewed are just outrageous!

a bypasser on the streets of NYC said Ron Paul (the only real sensible candidate for the presidency) is 'too old and looks too weak' to become president! i mean really???! how is that relevant, he is a fit individual with a sound mind - THAT'S what the people need, not an athletic war-monger!

Zubair Ahmed on February 12, 2012:

Hi Hinasille,

Another very good hub and a very objective review of the case. It high time that people realised this impending attack on Iran and escalation of hostility initiated by the West towards Iran will backfire.

Thy had no viable reason to attack Afghanistan nor Iraq other than the hollywood style stories that they spewed out to bid up the case for WMD in Iraq.

They have tried the same with Iran (the case with assassinating the Saudi idiot in New York) got nowhere with that half baked they have resorted to killing Physicists in Iran

It is all to do with Power and Oil nothing more!

Thank you for sharing

Anonymous, how can the US and israel object to Iran having nuclear weapons when they themselves possess nukes?

how can they object to Iran possibly developing nuclear weapons, when israel has more nukes per capita than any other country and they are threatening to go into Iran and take out the nuclear plants???right now???

all the intelligence agencies plus the IAEA have stated that Iran has not been developing nuclear weapons, so now its ok to attack another nation on suspicion of it possibly developing nukes despite the fact that all qualified agencies are suggesting the opposite?

how can it be justified that one country in the middle east is allowed to hold and use nuclear weaponry (israel) but any others that have a nuclear energy program are automatically under suspicion of developing nukes, a fact that is seen as intolerable?

severe case of double standards as usual.

Diogenes, you are certainly right about one thing - it seems britain will support america in yet another unnecessary war! sad, but a reality.

Anonymous on February 07, 2012:

I have to disagree. The war with Iraq went on much longer than it should, but it was going to happen one way or another. And how can you possibly say that the U.S. and Israel have no right to oppose Iran's nuclear program? Iran has repeatedly made threats to both Israel and the U.S. and it is their responsibility to protect their people from potential threats. What would you have them do? Wait until the bombs drop and then retaliate so that they can say it is justified?

diogenes from UK and Mexico on February 05, 2012:

One hopes that sanity will prevail (but does it ever?). I have long ago given up on mankind and its capacity to live in a peaceful world. Life is all conflict, one way or another.

In the UK we are snarling at Argentina again; more our size.

CONSCIOUSNINJA (author) from Planet Earth on February 04, 2012:

it is indeed a big business and ruse to make money... war profiteers always want the war to go on, because through selling arms and soldiers to both sides of the war they always make too much money.

it really is a sad state of affairs when the value of human life is nominal in comparison to rising oil and other commodities.

i think we all need to continue to educate ourselves, not dig our heads in the sand (we are all guilty of this in some way) & try to make sure our future generations don't think this is an acceptable way of life...

i will be writing more hubs in the coming weeks, so if you follow me i can let you know as i publish another one...

It is a terrifying aspect that we could end up in another world war or to the same effect a Vietnam or N. Korea conflict were the US/Allies were essentially fighting China at the same time.

War is a way to make money and that is why the US gets itself involved, I agree completely that war is run through big business. We don't directly go to war with countries like Russia/USSR even though Stalin had how many of his own people killed and or sent to the Gulags during his rule? But we can go to war with Iraq and other third world countries and make it justifiable. No going to war to save the world from conquering Nazi ass holes was ok but going to war for oil really?

One voice can't do much of anything but with hubs like yours hinazille and the spread of many voices eventually we can be heard. And funny we don't stop China from conquering Tibet and imprisoning the monks for their beliefs killing them and destroying such beautiful places of warship.

The Finance Hub, thanks for the read, and voting it up :) i will be sure to check out your hubs too!

whilst you are right that wars happen all the time, its deeply saddening that we accept it as is... as a movement of people we can ensure that we are not sitting ducks whenever our governments decide they want to cause unrest and instability in other countries, all whilst massacring innocent citizens... we have to make ourselves and others aware and be as vocal as possible to get the message out there...

its never easy, but i think it's a responsibility on us all to at least try to affect things positively.

i mean the US government and the UK spun such a story during and after 9/11 that the freedoms of the people was snatched one by one, right above their heads... now the US is looking set to go into yet ANOTHER unneccessary war, one that can potentially lead to a WORLD WAR... terrifying.

Flickr, i appreciate you taking the time to respond.. i agree with you on some of your points especially when you mention it would be a travesty if this war against Iran was to go ahead & that America had no business stating a war with Iraq...

with regards to the revenge aspect, however, the sad truth is that most americans refuse to accept that the september 11th attacks were in fact false flag, staged attacks carried out by none other than the american government, with the support and encouragement of the corporations and bankers who are running the show behind the scenes...

one of my other hubs, goes through this topic in some detail... let me know what you think of it..

on a separate note, the point you made at the end about America going to war with countries it previously supported, is a recurrent theme. the UK n the US pump leaders with weapons & war artillery, then when those leaders refuse to kow tow to the West's demands, they are suddenly the enemy and the worst dictator the respective country has seen!

really, i think the West needs to step out of conflicts in other countries, and focus on restoring freedoms to their own people... you can't even peacefully protest in the US without the police pepper spraying you, shoving you around, or forcibly removing you from your location!! That surely can't be the epitome of freedom... the same type the US professes to instill in middle eastern countries?

Unfortunately, the harsh reality is that we live in a blood thirsty world wide community where everyone is wrong and no one can be right. With that said, war happens it happens all the time all around the world. Let's just hope this one doesn't take a drastic turn! Great hub, voted up, hope you will enjoy my hubs as well!

I think that America had no business in starting a war with Iraq, but a lot of people around the world lost family and friends on 9/11 and wanted revenge and that was enough to go to war sadly with Afghanistan. I think we'll find that there are a lot of Muslims and there may be more tensions through Europe then expected. I think it would be a sad travesty to start a war with Iran and it's strange that we don't learn from our mistakes. We supported Iran not that long ago with arms and munition just like we did with Afghanistan and many other countries we ended up going to war with.
