    Like I said, respond to my position or not as you may wish. Again, the US issued Economic sanctions Iran responded with declaring they have "the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe"

    That makes their actions our business.

    Until that day we should do what is necessary to assure that we have the oil that we need without depending on oil from the middle east. Things like approving the Keystone pipeline from Canada, allowing offshore drilling and developing our own crude oil sources. This will not happen till we the people replace the anti oil anti business jack wagon that currently occupies the white house.

    Well seeing as we are attempting to shut down their economy with both heavy economic and trade sanctions, attacking our interests is indeed a defense mechanism. I'm not arguing that the threat isn't valid, simply saying that when you back a country into a corner with very few options to remove itself from potential threats, they will most likely turn to guerrilla warfare and sabotage in lieu of diplomacy.

    That is an answer. It's been done in this country since General Henry Knox. And it's been done by civilizations since ancient Rome.

    Now you can ignore history if you want to, but that doesn't mean it isn't happening.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    No this is more like an OWS tactic.

    I took your answer as a statement of fact regarding the current situation which should be backed up with sources. If you are simply discussing theory I agree.

    Re: PAPER: Military action against Iran 'likely'..

    War will happen if:

    1)Tehran even thinks of closing the Strait of Hormuz
    '
    and/or

    2) Iran fabricates an atomic bomb


    the sanctions don't seem to be working with Tehran, so take your own conclusions .... we can argue about war against the Iraniam Regime till we are black and blue, that is our right and pleasure of course .... but the dice has been cast and no amount of semantics on our part will change the course of events if these two conditions eventuate.

    The keystone pipeline was for exporting purposes mainly between Canada and China, it would do little to boost our production if anything at all.

    US oil production has risen sharply since Obama took office, not by his doing or policies but the myth that production alone means lower prices needs to die, the issue is far too complex to view in that simplistic of terms.

    Not sure what the parallel is between Occupy Wall Street and anything contained in my post, but I'd love to hear it.

    Don't expect an actual response.
