    Your miles may vary...Industrialist and defense contractors disagree with you

    But here's the scoop

    Israel won't attack Iran without our tacit permission. I don't know the precise nature of our defense arrangements with the government of Iraq, but I can easily picture a situation where US radar picks up the Israeli flight, and does & says nothing. IRAQI radar does not. WE didn't give Israel permission to overfly Iraq, we just tell the Iraqis that they were doing so.


    The Iraqi government is then free to express mild outrage at the violation of their national airspace, the Israelies apologize, and everyone gets to enjoy the column of smoke rising from Tehran, etc.

    Something is bound to happen with the Iranian Regime, things can not continue like this.... two? three? four months? more or less?.....

    War is a sad affair. But not as sad as madmen religious fanatics having a nuclear bomb and using it in all of us.

    I would agree with this in principle. There is one serious problem with this though, and that is the strait of Hormuz. If that is lost, there will be some serious financial implications that go with it. We need that strait real bad. I would say let Israel defend itself from Iran, I am fine with that, and we don't need to shed our blood because of it. We will need to park a couple of carrier attack groups in there and keep the lane open or else we will be looking at about 8 per gallon in gas, if not worse.

    History has shown that the dangerous repercussions for not acting can far outweigh those for acting. This sure seems to be one of them.

    $8 for gas is probably the solution to our quest for alternative energy.

    It's certainly the solution to my problem of not being able to see to back out of my parallel parking space because of SUV's all 'round.

    An Iran event seems inevitable and will change the world as we know it for our lifetimes. Other countries also know this and that's why they're not so eager for it to occur.

    Ahhh yes if the world was that easy.
    Should we do this and whatever cost?

    That fact that the rest of the world allows such dictatorial and fundamentally evil regimes to continue to exist is an insult to all humanity.
    Well look around and dont be so naive. The US supports(ed) evil regimes..
