    Please name those options that would reasonably be used in this situation. Also this is not a surgical missile strike, this is the beginning of a coordinated aerial offensive as per the article. And furthermore no serious analyst anywhere in the world believes there will be a surgical NUCLEAR strike. That much isn't even worth discussing.

    The purpose is not to end the program...its to slow it way down...

    the options would include a proxy war against the US and Israel in the region, as well as a shadow economic war. it wouldn't take much to send the US into a depression, and China holds a significant amount of our debt.

    the least poor option is to continue diplomatic and economic strategies until Iran demonstrates that its nuclear program is truly malignant.

    Why does Iran have to demonstrate anything to anyone? Our foreign policy has demonstrated one thing and one thing only over the last 11 years. Get a nuke and we won't bomb you. They would have to be fools to not want a nuke considering all the things we've done to them over the years.
