So we're going to stop him from bombing his own people with his air force by, umm, bombing his people with OUR air force. Brilliant! Very humanitarian too.He was bombing his own people with the airforce and slaughtering opposition with hired mercs.
Correct. You say "leave him in power" as though it should have been our decision to make in the first place. Who do you think you are? He was already in power; we should have let the people who actually have skin in the game sort out for themselves whether or not they want to continue being ruled by him.At some point, even the Euros say 'enough is enough'. You, apparently, have no problem with leaving him in power after what he did (for six days, before the UN stopped him).

I can't. This is important.

Here's the only thing -- Iran is a major client of Russia. I doubt Putin's going to look kindly on us bombing his customer back to the stone age. There's also a pretty decent possibility that they've already got the bomb and just haven't publicized it yet. I believe that's the CW on Israel's nuclear program too. The whole situation could quickly mushroom into WW3.I'm bomb bomb Iran, bigtime. And I'm happy, except we haven't bombed Iran. If we don't do it soon, they're gonna be locked down like nK and no one will be able to do crap then.
