    So why should we blow up these ships again?

    No, what's chicken****, is calling me an armchair warrior, without knowing a damn thing about me.

    Ever wonder why we didn't arm the mujas in AF with American weapons?
    It happened three years ago.

    Are you active duty? Can you be called up to active duty? If not, then armchair warrior is exactly what you're being. You're advocating a pre-emptive strike in international waters that would surely start a hot war.

    Thank you for proving my point. GREAT job, as usual!

    See how your argument is no different than, "what unit were you in"? You advocate inaction and cowardice, yet you can't justify them.

    In this case, "inaction" and "cowardice" are not synonyms. What, exactly, is Iran supposedly doing in this instance that you are advocating an act of war in response to?

    They're sending out a probing force to test our reaction their vessels operating in close proximity to our borders.

    You would feel awfully silly, if on the third, or fourth cruise, they sent a vessel up with a nuke onboard floating into Chesapeake Bay.

    Its how diplomacy and foreign policy sometimes work. The fact is, at the time the best way to marginalize Iran was to support Iraq. Times change, and those events dont prevent the us from reserving the right to do as it see's fit.

    "Let's blow up two boats of a country whose military is over fifty years behind us."
    "Let's not and say we did."
    "Coward!"

    This is a goofy thread.

    I'll remember that next time you share your opinions relating to President Obama and the way he leads the Country. You've never been President of the United States either so using your logic you need to quiet down.
