Cafferty: Will Israel attack Iran?
WATCH "The Cafferty File": Robertson for Rudy?
Should Israel attack Iran's nuclear facilities?
Jack, it doesn't really matter what we think. What Israel does to Iran is between Jerusalem and Tehran. The decision is ultimately theirs, not ours, and it's time we stopped worrying about other countries' foreign policy decisions. Unless it's Israeli policy toward the U.S., it's none of our business. -Dave, Cincinnati, Ohio

Bomb, bomb, bomb! Is that all these politicians know. What on earth is the difference between bully Israel bombing Iran, or Iran being a threat to bomb Israel. Cooler heads need to prevail all around. -Janelle, Roeland Park, Kansas

Mr. Cafferty, Yes Israel should make the strike. Iran should be taken at their word and a pre-emptive strike would be in self-defense. This is not a Wild West saga where you wait to be fired upon. These are nuclear weapons and justifications do not apply to 21st century fanatics.
-Bruce

I believe if Israel bombs Iran's nuke sites it will lead to the largest Holy War since biblical times. Every terrorist group will try to attack Israel. -Bruce, Fargo, North Dakota

What's your reaction to new research that shows being overweight might help you live longer?
Dear Jack, At my age of 63 and counting, I thought that I had about heard it all, NOT! Being overweight is dangerous to your health no matter which way you look at it. Would love to know who designed that study and what control groups they used. In addition, what needs to be done is track those overweight individuals to see how much their quality of life is impaired and how their life expectancy is greatly shortened. -Bernadette, Leesburg, Florida

Jack, Who sponsored this research? McDonalds, Frito-Lay, and the Cookie Monster? -John, Charleston, West Virginia

Jack, if I believed everything I read about health over the years, and acted on it, I'd have been dead long ago. Moderation in all things is the ticket! Except your show. I can't get enough of it!
-Leena, Leetsdale, Pennsylvania

My reaction to the report? Sad resignation to the fact that we're insistent on maintaining our overindulgent, gorging ways, especially when it comes to food, and now there's an excuse for it.
-John, Johnston, Iowa

My reaction is simple Jack. I'm heading right out to the store for a six pack and big bag of pretzels. Finally, study results I can agree with. -Tom, Cape May, New Jersey

How does the U.S. treat its veterans if they make up more than 25% of our nation's homeless population?
We don’t take care of them, at least not the way we should! It's possibly one of the most embarrassing legacies of the current administration, and that's saying a lot considering the number of rather unattractive skeletons that now lurk in the president's closet. The awful conditions exposed at Walter Reed were only the tip of the iceberg. -John in Johnston, Iowa
Hey Jack, Everything is just so wonderful America should just keep giving its money away to other countries and Congress should create more pork barrel projects. Don't worry about the poor vets, Bush doesn't. -Frank, Sunny Hills, Florida

Vets deserve the most of any within our country. Each returning vet must be guaranteed medical, mental, and educational services. These services should last as long as THEY choose. They are not "slackers" to be pushed off to the side of the road and shouldn't be treated that way. We need a whole NEW vets benefit program which is life long and guaranteed! -Dave

Jack, We have treated our veterans terribly and have for years, but I have an idea... adopt-a-vet. Lets get companies to adopt homeless vets, supply them a place to live, food, and support by giving them a job and emotional support. It's time our companies and its employees give back to those who keep them free. -Terry, Virginia Beach, Virginia
