    We tried that for decades. The destabilization foreign policy didn't work.

    Even that was only comparing Iraq to Iran. It wasn't easy by any objective standard, but I think that trying to do the same in Iran would make it seem easy by comparison.

    The Iranian regime feeds Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and terrorists throughout Africa. Head of the snake, dude.

    That does not sound at all isolationist nor lacking strategic options like some say is the position of the nation of Iran...
    The question is more important than the answer!

    We can't get involved and we can't sit back and do nothing. Quite the conundrum.

    IMO, we can't get involved, because either way we're arming a future enemy. Destablization will only be temporary. It would be a good way to put some jihadists on ice. But, arming the islamic extremists, the way we did in Libya is a bad idea; especially when you consider the NBC stockpiles that Syria has.

    Only problem is that this snake is a hydra. Knock out Syria and it would make the the task of supplying Hamas more difficult for Iran.

    Going in to do anything other than kill fighters on both sides, will be nothing but a charlie foxtrot, so I agree that sending combat forces is a bad idea.

    Personally, I think we should sit back and let them all kill each other.
    Oh I think the Delta Sierras will want to get involved.

    Whatever group that replaces Assad's government will ally with Iran, so we wouldn't be isolating anything.

    It's becoming a matter of time. Could efforts be made on the ground in Syria without compromising our ability to prevent the Iranian regime from getting nukes? Syria is not a hydra-head, it's almost totally dependant on Iran.

    Your plan is ok if the nuke clock wasn't tick tockin'.
