    I hope by talks they mean that they are going to put their foot down on Iran and say that no more will be tolerated from them and that military action can be expected.

    Well then AdamT, we will have to agree to disagree.

Iran has been waging a low-intensity war against America and Israel — both directly and by proxy — for more than two decades. Iran’s Quds Force has planned and directed attacks on U.S. forces in Iraq and on Israelis in Israel and abroad. Iran has directly supplied our enemies with deadly weaponry in Iraq and Afghanistan, and is responsible for hundreds of American military deaths — including the Marine barracks bombing in Beirut and the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia.

    Mind if I ask for the source of that quote?

    Iran’s support for international terrorism and Iran’s active pursuit of weapons of mass destruction.

    I have no doubt that they were up to no good while we were invading Iraq. OTOH, we supported an autocratic dictator in Iran and supplied Saddam with WMDs when he was fighting Iran, so I can see how they'd be a bit cheesed at us.

    In any case, there is no good military solution here. We could bomb the crap out of them and it wouldn't set their program back for very long. We could launch an Iraq-style invasion but that would actually be much more difficult than Iraq was, and more costly, and we can ill afford it. On top of the direct cost, which would be immense, it would likely plunge the world economy into a massive recession, if not a depression.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."
