    It was an act of terror and a cowardess one at that. Face facts, the nuclear cat is out of the bag and the world is going to have to deal with it.

    According to SecDef Leon Panetta, Iran is not building a nuclear bomb. Please see post 19.

    It was not an act of terror, it was a targeted assassination, big difference. And yes we are dealing with it, by killing the people working for their nuclear program. Would you rather go to war with them? Or just let them have one?

    At this point they WILL have one regardless of what we do. Your support of such a cowardly act of terrorism is noted. Al-Qaeda in the U.S. will be very proud of you.

    I see you would rather deal in ad-homs, and strawmen, than with facts.

    and quite ironic, too, since he is accusing your position as being the one al Qaeda would applaud rather than his.

    Re: Car bombs kill Iranian nuclear expert

    Just something I quickly wanna put out there:

    Do you think attacks like these will piss the regime off more and make them want to attain nukes that much more or do you think it will make them back down? (Edit: If they are in fact, attempting to attain nukes)

    No those are the facts. It was an act of terrorism. Dispicable that you and others support it.

They did it to terrify Americans. If we had blown up an Iranian cafe full of people who have nothing to do with the Iranian nuclear project, you'd have a point. However, this was 1. targeted and 2. concentrated.
    I don't know why it's so important as to whether or not this incident qualifies as terrorism. It's close enough to terrorism for me. And probably for the family of the innocent passenger who was killed as well. There are other very successful and clandestine ways to assassinate a target. Having chosen a car bomb shows that the perpetrators were sending a message of terror to others.

    I agree: dispicable. I do wonder why you don't think the U.S. had direct involvement, though. The CIA will facilitate/arrange/support/condone anything that serves to protect the United States short of political assassination -- and I'm not even sure about [U]that. From November 11th:

    In a significant failure for the United States in the Mideast, more than a dozen spies working for the CIA in Iran and Lebanon have been caught and the U.S. government fears they will be or have been executed, according to four current and former U.S. officials with connections to the intelligence community. The spies were paid informants recruited by the CIA for two distinct espionage rings targeting Iran and the Beirut-based Hezbollah organization, considered by the U.S. to be a terror group backed by Iran.

    "Espionage is a risky business," a U.S. official briefed on the developments told ABC News, confirming the loss of the unspecified number of spies over the last six months. "Many risks lead to wins, but some result in occasional setbacks," the official said.
