    USA no longer has the financial ability to babysit the entire world. Recall the argument for the Iraq war was via threat assessment and protection. How did that work out? Do you seriously think anyone is dumb enough to believe that Iran having nukes is somehow more dangerous than China or Pakistan?

    Launching cyber attacks and drone missiles is cheap and easy. China should not be included with Iran and Pakistan.

    Why would getting rid of the Iranian leadership be a waste of money?

    Why shouldn't they? I'd put north korea on there, too.

    Though china is much less likely than iran to attack some american interest with nuclear weaponry, they have such q powerful compliment of weaponry and technology they could do far more damage. Hence, as a threat, they far supersede iran who probably isn't even within 10 years of making a single bomb and has not a prayer in hell of effectively using the bomb they make beyond relatively short range.

    If there were people dumb enough to think Iraq (one of the weakest countries on the planet at the time) was a threat, there will surely be people dumb enough to believe that Iran is a threat.

    In the same way replacing one corrupt government in Iraq with another corrupt government was a waste of money.

    Or one corrupt government in Libya with another corrupt government in Libya. There are probably enough drones in the US arsenal that can keep sending the message to these third world despots until they settle down and it right.

    How much money did we spend on the NATO mission in Libya? How much money did we spend in the GOP war in Iraq?

    How many lives were lost unnecessarily in Libya? How many lives were lost unnecessarily in Iraq?

    Very little, and that's what Ive been saying. That's the entire point.
    How many lives were lost unnecessarily in Libya? How many lives were lost unnecessarily in Iraq?
    Do you need some remedial reading? I'm talking drone missiles, not full invasions, and that's what I've repeated.
