    Iran has murded Americans and now they're coming to us. It doesn't take a military genius to figure this out.

    And the libs can't figure out why conservatives are so concerned with Iran while the left believes in appeasing Iran.
    I always wondered why they seemed to not care about these types of things-but its because they DONT care, in their ****ed up mindset-there is no absolute right or wrong-to make that statement means one is discriminating-and we cant have that.

    Murdering American servicemen isnt an act of war?

    if it is true that Iran is responsible for nursing Americans then there should be a declaration of war. It is your assertion that Iran is sending three small poorly functioning naval vessels to attack America?

    If somebody has to be whacking somebody with a big stick, I'm glad we have the stick. But let's not pretend that it's acceptable for us to do one thing and unacceptable for another to do the same.

    That would be rather arrogant and bully-ish.
    They are the worlds largest state sponsor of terrorism, we dont need to set an example for those guys, we need to expose their leadership to large amounts of kinetic energy and let that do the talking.

    The irony is, if we take a death toll tally, I do believe the U.S. would be at the top of the leader board. I firmly believe those on the receiving end of the US stick view us every bit as much of a terrorist as we view them. And they have a lot more bodies to make their case with than we do. It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose. By definition, terrorism being not state sponsored or actions of a recognized military, we have the argument won by definition. But if we were to describe terrorist as "one who inflicts terror," the U.S. definitely scares the hell out of them more than they scare us.

    An American court determined that Iran is responsible for the Khobar Towers Bombing.

    I never said Iran is sending ships to attack us, but it's definitely a probe to test our response.

    If Iran bombing the Khobar towers (a complex I was in 2 weeks prior to the attack) is your rationale for war, then go to war. It is simply not an option to sink ships in international water without a declaration of an intent to attack. I find it kind of hard to believe you are seriously suggesting that would be appropriate.
