    Saudi's don't have the capability, nor a strong enough military to fight Iran...Attacking me personally won't change that.

    In real life, people aren't supervillains. People in power want to maintain that power, and they realize that attacking the United States is about the quickest way to be removed from power.

    Yeah, you are right. Nobody has ever attacked the US.

    You sure about that?

    Even Democrats don’t see him as a strong leader in the world at this point of his presidency.
    Six years into Obama’s presidency, the public is losing faith that our president can command the respect of other nations. It’s not hard to see why.

    And that from the dailybeast for God's sake....You don't see that? Really?

    As far as controlling what other countries do, I would say don't be naive. We not only have the responsibility to do so, but the burden of making the right call for the sake of the world. That you and others don't want us to have that responsibility means little as to the fact that we already do.
    You say "the action is clear," but don't actually state the action. Do we invade them? Cruise-missile them? Increase economic sanctions? Leave burning dog poop on the Ayatollah's doorstep?

    No it isn't.

    Back then Japan had the military capability to attack America because their technological and military strength were at a point they could seriously challenge eachother.

    Iran has absolutely no military capability whatsoever to attack the US.

    I'm surprised a former member of the military doesn't understand that most nations simply don't have the force deployment capabilities that the USA does.

    Not even China does.

    No, that would be Afghanistan. The point being that Deuce's silly argument that powerful people don't attack the US because they fear retaliation is easily shown to be false. That may be the restraint on many countries that would love to attack the US otherwise, but it isn't a universal rule that applies to all nations and groups that hate the US.

    Al Qaeda is an extra-national force and regardless of their status under the Taliban Government (which didn't even control the whole country) Afghanistan as a unitary body never attacked the USA.
