    You are assuming China and Russia will not lend support. That is a dangerous assumption I think.

    I'm sure that puts Iran at ease.

    Of course we will, we can't maintain our hegemony in the middle east if we don't. That's what it is all about.

    Wait, wait... let's add up civilian deaths by the US military in the 20th Century and see who wins!

    Nazi Germany, the USSR, Or the USA.

    It's a close race... it'd be a fantastic historical investigation!

    Let's not assume Russia and China really care about Iran that much either. Remember, they don't want to tangle with us any more than we want to tangle with them. It works both ways.

    As you know, Iran is a neighboring country to Russia. You don't think we would come to the aid of Mexico or Canada if they were attacked??? And, I think you are very much underestimating China's need of Middle East oil.

    You're right, the US wouldn't put up with it. But the US, Canada, and Mexico are significant trading partners and have been so for a very long time.

    On the other hand, Mexico isn't in the habit of claiming Panama "has no right to exist," and Columbia is a "cancerous tumor that must be cut and will be cut." And neither Canada nor Mexico are attempting to develop their own nukes. Panama hasn't threatened to close the Canal to anyone. In other words, they don't do anything to make us look stupid by association.

    Russia and Iran have been trading but not on a significant scale, and mostly it's been Iran buying from Russia, not the other way around. Russia's only real concern is in losing a customer, not a partner in trade. Russia opposes the US just to reduce US influence in the region, not out of any real love for Iran. China has many sources of oil. On several occasions, China has severely cut back on purchases of Iranian oil because of contract disagreements. If China needed Iran so bad, they wouldn't be cutting Iran off all the time. They're not going to send their largely immobile military half way around the world for an inconstant and unreliable source. They certainly won't go into a shooting war over one.

    You can express your opinion of course MKULTRABOY ... but I for one am thankful for all those American men and women present and past that have given their lives fighting against what they knew was wrong.

    Call me naive if you wish. It's fine.
