    So, to those zealous morons in Teheran, Good bye, good riddence and don't let the door hit where the good lord split you on the way out.
    One was a cadet ship and the other was a supply ship.. Hardly a cause for alarm.

    I can only imagine the news that the Iranian people are getting right now. We are probably being portrayed correctly in the fact that we are causing them significant harm. If we go into that country, I can't believe that there will be any open arms for us. This won't be Iraq...this will be war. Can we please leave these people alone?

    BTW, Maggie D, I loved your comment...what business is it of ours? No effing clue but the world police demand we blow up their infrastructure, rebuild it, get thrown out of their country after trillions in investment. Seems extremely counter productive.

    The US has been concerned about Iran's nuclear program since 2003. This event is probably the most insignificant in the entire timeline. Where have you been?

    War with Iran has seemed an inevitability since the 70s. The longer we wait, the tougher it will be.

    Simplistic, but true, considering the mentality that exists within the regime of this cockroach of a Middle Eastern country.

    My wish is for us to fully commit to finding alternative energy sources and to develop them quickly so that we may leave that region permanently and as soon as possible.
    We are doing very well to avoid conflict with Iran. Diplomacy has been attempted for years. A string of sanctions (and more on the way) are finally having an effect. We can only hope this will push Iran to the negotiating table. Iran has agreed to talk, but not about refining uranium, the very thing the West would like to discuss. So Iran's offer of talks, so far, is a false offer. Not sincere at all. Iran has countered with cutting of oil to the West before sanctions take effect. I think Iran believes we are in a stalemate where it will ultimately win. This is not true, of course. Oil can be had elsewhere. Iran is not the regional power that it imagines itself to be. It cannot win economically or militarily in this standoff.

    I agree that the US and West should eliminate their need for oil. These constant flare-ups in the ME are just not worth it, they are usually related to the flow of oil, and they are mind-bogglingly expensive. In my mind, they qualify as a gigantic oil subsidy. But I would have to say that, in this instance, the US would still be involved. This conflict is not about securing oil, but about Iran's nuclear program. Does it include a weapons program or not? Many countries want to know for certain and Iran has refused to offer proof. This only make nations more concerned. So this conflict is NOT about oil, even though oil is being used as a weapon, it is about nuclear weapons.

    So are we going to pass a war tax and actually declare war, or is this going to be just another thing on the national credit card?

    This cannot be said enough.

    Sadly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So you don't think they're working to acquire or develop nuclear capability?

    From what I quoted:

    We have nukes. No one will beat us in that type of confrontation. Reagan, if you will remember, had this same attitude. It was not our place to rule the world.
