    Maybe an H-bomb on Tehran would change their level of serious. I know it sounds worse than insane, but I wouldn't get to upset we set off about 10 of those over there. Frankly I'm tired of hearing from those idiots. They have been killing their own people for thousands of years.

    A sandy bomb.

    Drunken callousness will get us nowhere.

    You don't go negotiating with those people with a Western mindset.

    Negotiating will strengthen the coalition of the willing should such be necessary.

    That is a point in favor of it - it seemed that going into Iraq basically alone didn't go over so well. And people here in the US are probably far less willing to so such a thing these days. That would change if Iran attacked someone with a nuke though...perhaps even without one.

    Which is irrelevant. I'll leave it to you figure out why.

    Multi-National Force

    And people here in the US are probably far less willing to so such a thing these days.
    Pretty much all of congress agrees to military action to prevent Iran from obtaining nukes.

    That would change if Iran attacked someone with a nuke though...perhaps even without one.
    Iran attacks countries all the time, through proxies. They don't even hide it.

    Iran is not a waring country. And they aren't a threat to world peace. That comes from elsewhere.

    There's really no way to sugarcoat it: The rest of world believes that the United States is the country that poses the greatest threat to world peace, beating out all challengers by a wide margin.

I'm in no way defending Iran's insurgent activities. They've been a thorn in our side at least since the Carter-era. I'm just saying don't be too quick to point the finger at another country's foreign policy affairs before taking a look-back at some of our own questionable activities as former Sen. Ron Paul tried to caution us about. (And no, I don't agree with is isolationist position either. Just saying...well, "pot calling kettle black".)
    That kind of logic would justify the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
