    Honestly, though, this has a lot more to do with really bad strategy. The same thing could have been accomplished without the massive land occupation, and it'd definitely be an easy task for the U.S. military to render Iran useless. We're talking tactical strikes, really. It's not necessary to completely plow everything under and institute huge regime changes. Just strike all kinds of great targets from the air, run all kinds of special ops when something on the ground needs to happen, and sit back and wait to watch what happens next. If they start to get some kind of momentum, strike again. Repeat until things are more to your liking.

    Blowhards always telegraph their intent just like a bully on the playground does..."I'm gonna' break your nose"...then dances around hoping to scare you. Strike first as with a bully and watch them cry. Wait and do it diplomatically and then..."here we go again".

    Oh, and if they block the straight, well, you able to pay 200+$/ barrel of oil??

    A war with Iran would more than likely go nuclear, also, there's a good chance that it would spill over into neighboring countries....
    The problem has been that the US has been trying to fight wars while avoiding casualties on either side. This is not the way wars are fought, and with the current attitude it could be 100 years for any war to end. And we would lose the peace. You must act in such a manner that the enemy will never think going near a weapon of any sort ever again. I could name a couple of examples.

    If lines are blocked you unblock them.

    The war has already started. Are you so old fashioned that you feel it still has to be declared?

    Anti-War folks are part of Iran's war strategy, please don't tell me that being against a war with Iran is actually supporting Iran's plan?

    well you know the bush doctrine: If you don't blindly support everything we want to do - then you're against us. Paraphrasing of course.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Agreed. That and wars run on energy so it's good business for the OIL companies and then after the war is over Iran's oil would be in their distribution network at maybe a nickel a gallon profit. All those war Corporations would make money building and using up weapons and "we" the taxpayer take it up the kazoo. That'd be business as usual. Very profitable for the status quo of a war making machine. Sorta like Hitler and fascism, don't you think?.

    I hope this can be averted...

    Comments?
    I wouldn't worry too much about it. There are some asshats in Iran who want war, just as there are some asshats in the United States who want war. But they aren't a majority...either in terms of public opinion or in terms of political power. Ali Khamenei knows perfectly well what would happen if he went to war with the United States, and he has no intention of doing anything to start one.

    That's right kids, it's time to play "Who is Exactly Like Hitler?" This week the winner is...IRAN! Maybe next time it will be North Korea, Burma, the Castro Brothers, Hugo Chavez, Barack Obama, or Mitt Romney. Stay tuned for next week's episode.

    But this time it's an accurate comparison.

    Sure it is. Just like it was an accurate comparison when applied to Nikita Kruschev, Saddam Hussein (after he was our friend), Slobadon Milosevic, Saddam Hussein (again), Moammar Gaddafi (before he was our friend), Kim Jong-il, Moammar Gaddafi (after he was our friend), and every US President in the last 70 years! And I'm sure it will be an accurate comparison next week too, when the label is applied to someone else who is undoubtedly plotting to unleash carnage on the world and must be dealt with immediately.

    Comparing people to Hitler who AREN'T Hitler is retarded, and is a substitute for actually thinking about foreign policy.
