    Get them before they get us, it's that type of paranoia and absence of logic that got us into Iraq.

    Don't be silly. Iran is planning no such thing. Stick to the plausible.

    Thank you. I think Connery wished to give me the clap.

    Higher fuel prices...military action in Iran...both of these things could impact Obama's chances for re-election. Maybe I'm just too suspicious, but something about this whole scenerio doesn't make sense.

    It is believed that the effects of the sanctions ultimately will result in a change of regime or having Israel forgo any military action against Iran.

    Well, that makes some sense. I hope they're right. And I hope we like the next regime.

    Wouldn't that be nice huh? that the sanctions force the Iranian Regime to open up ALL their nuclear facilities to the world and give up their nuclear dreams..... wouldn't that be just dandy!


    I for one, am not holding my breath!

    Why should they have to give up their nuclear dreams??

    My stubborn Irish friend, what you are looking for is an excuse not definable position. Iran has no nuclear capability at present and has no real delivery system. Yes, perhaps if Iran does develop a nuke and uses a ship to launch the nuke from international waters it could strike one US city. What would be the point? Their country would not exist shortly after that. They know that. What would they gain?

    No matter, they have no nuclear option. So then you fear that if we don't attack them now they will attack us around the globe? If if we do attack them now they won't? How does that work?

    No, I'm sorry my friend what you are looking for is an excuse to attack Iran. Iran does not need an excuse to attack us as we have been screwing them constantly for a very long time. Nothing we do now can change the past. But perhaps by changing the present we can change the future.
