    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.
    But who could they pass this capability on to, given their radical leadership? This region of the world is ruled largely and discreetly run by terrorist factions who belong to no state.

    Likely no one. They are not stupid. They helped us go into Iraq, knowing that is the best way to hurt us. Some fear too much and think too little. War with Iran will be costly, on all fronts, and largely unnecessary.

    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.

    Oh so you are going to enlist to fight this just war you believe in or are you expecting others to do it for you? Are willing to pay for it or do you want to charge it?

    If Iran were smart, they would come to the negotiating table and permit the IAEA access to inspect. Iran is being crippled by the sanctions and they cannot defeat the US OR Israel in a military fashion. Why persist? If no nuclear weapons program were found: the sanctions would be lifted, the US and Israel would have no further reason to threaten Iran, and Iran could continue operating their nuclear reactor. Doesn't anyone think this is the smartest, most non-stupid thing to do?

    I doubt it. But if we do, more is the pity. Get ready for more pain here.

    Why would that be smart? It keeps us unsure. And there is reason to discredit us, make us jumpy.

    Or Israel could go to the peace table, leave the occupied territories and eliminate the need for HAMAS or Hezbollah.

    Remember, Israel used to buy lots of oil from Iran.. in fact, I think they owed Iran 200 million dollars with interest for two decades.
