    Cat, kindly give the rhetoric a rest.

    If you look in this thread I provided an instance, when in 1982," the United States discovered that Russia was stealing data on United States technology. So the CIA hatched a plot to insert a logic bomb into software that the agency knew the Russians were purchasing from a Canadian firm to operate pumps and valves on their natural gas pipeline. The equipment worked fine initially, but at a preprogrammed point, it caused valves in the pipeline to malfunction, creating a pressure buildup that exploded into a fireball so large it was captured by orbiting satellites."

    There are times much like these where protection from enemies include the latest weaponry such as: the Atomic bomb in the 1940's and the use of drones in the recently. To turn a blind eye to that which would most benefit those who the government must protect is more than negligent or irresponsible; it is reckless and can only lead to disaster.

    If so, they should be finished off quickly.
    That's what the GOP said about Iraq, and Iran is much more powerful than was Iraq at the time of our invasion.

    Its not rhetoric. I don't buy into your premise that Iran is a credible threat to the US. And I don't accept that it is morally correct to do to others what you would not have them do to you.

    And yet the link you posted said it was an act of war. Which is it?

    Iraq is not part of this thread. It is another country, just like Brazil, Norway and Australia are other countries.

    Thankfully you are not the decision maker here and not charged with the protection and security of the United States. The only reason you have the luxury to opine on what is a morally correct is there are those who actually make those hard decisions, get their hands dirty and in some cases give their lives to insure that people living in a democracy can have the freedom to opine on what is morally correct.

    If you are searching for "morals", "Iran is not the best place to look.
