    Do you need some remedial reading? I'm talking drone missiles, not full invasions, and that's what I've repeated.

    When did NATO propose an attack on Iran's government as they did in Libya, and for what reason???

    I don't care about moral high ground. What I do care about is the Mad Mullahs possessing nuclear weapons and who they decide to share those weapons with. To hell with the moral high ground.

    No, we wouldn't. They stormed our embassy and held hundreds of our fellow citizens hostage for a year and a half and we didn't consider that an act of war.

    Is that a serious question? You're asking why we should be concerned if a country that supplies Islamic terrorists with weapons all over the world should suddenly possess nuclear weapons? What planet do you live on?

    Far, far more dangerous.

    The report does not say Iran is not trying to get nukes. It says the obtaining of nukes is not imminent. I think we ought to do everything we can to make it even less imminent than it already is.

    Libya was a NATO mission don't ya know?

    More recently, check out why we went to war with Iraq.
