    Iran won't cut off its own life blood unless threatened, which is why the war hawks need to stay the hell away from Iran and stop beating the war drums. That includes Israel.

    I could use some new windows at home. Turn Iran to glass and let Home Depot sell it.

    Iran keeps it up with the nuke program, Israel will take them out.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    What do you need? Little windows or big windows? They can make little ones with all the kids that are killed. Ten kids per window.

    Asshole.

    No they won't. They can't.

    Let 'em get nukes and be like us! Everyone loves the United States...right?? I think?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    And then spend 10 years and trillions of dollars attempting to fix their country? Thanks, but no thanks.

    Perhaps you should look into what happened in Iraq and learn a lesson from it.

    Militarily strong and economically destitute? I think they're on their way to it.
