    False premise.
    You don't need to destory ALL the sites to hinder/cripple/stop their nuclear weapons program.

    You need to at least take out all of the MAIN sites, most of which are underground and thus hard to destroy with bombs.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    You need to take out the sites that revolve around parts of the program that allow the program to move forward - technological/developmental choke points. Given the complexity of the project, that may very well be a small number of sites.

    Excuse me, but what authority do you have that permits you to draw this conclusion? Are you a weapons program expert? Are you a military strategerist? Are you a defense/intelligence analyst?

    Seriously, what expertise do you have on this issue?

    I simply know what the intelligence community and elected officials have indicated to the media: That Iran's nuclear program is very spread out, and largely underground, because they do not want to suffer the same fate as Iraq's Osirak reactor did.

    Kim Jong Ill on the other hand.....
    Nope.

    Move along, nothing to see here.
    You serious?

    Must be an Obamatron.
    HAHAHAHA. Good one!

    How pitiful.

    Doesn't Iran support Hamas with weapons and don't you think the may hand them a nuclear car-bomb?
    Of course not. That's ridiculous.

    So you don't believe that Iran supports terrorist groups with weapons and money?

    I think we should nuke Iran, then nuke Afghanistan, then nuke Europe, then nuke Antarctica (The penguins are just rude down there), then nuke California (Who needs those tree huggers), then nuke Sesame Street (Kermit looks like a Commie), then nuke the Sun (It's already nuking, but what the hell), then nuke a couple of partridges in a pear tree, and after that, we can all die together. But before we die, lets have a party, and nuke the whole damn Earth for good measure. After all, we don't want the dinosaurs returning any time in the next 50 million years, do we? Unfortunately, roaches will survive. Maybe they will evolve, and someday create another Newsmax before they nuke the whole damn universe.

    And since when did Iran give terrorists everything they had?

    Pray tell (I know this is futile as you, like the rest are going to ignore this) why Iran would give terrorists a nuclear weapon, which no state has ever done in history and immediately be on the first to hit if a nuclear weapon goes off anywhere?
