    Thanks I wish I was leader! We would go through some very serious military times right now that would actually save many lives in comparison to what it is likely we are going to have to go through in the future when these rogue countries play out their waiting game to catch up to us militarily....

    I believe that the United States military would have a solid case before the U.N. if it were to decide to "meddle" a bit in Iranian affairs during this current crisis.

    However, before doing so, the United States govt. really needs to think about possible repercussions from any direct intervention in Iran. It is entirely possible for the United States to go into Iran to help liberate the people from a repressive regime, only to have those very same people turn on the United States if one person were to yell "Death to America!" or "Death to Israel!" or something similar...these Muslims are a fickle bunch...and that makes them dangerous.
    It matters not how strait the gate,

    Regan helped the government of El Salvador to do pretty much the same things that the Iranian government is doing now so I think its fair to say the worlds better off without him

    Look guys, there's a limit to what you can do. I'm part of my college's Volunteer Activism club and there are plenty of countries in Africa that need our help more than Iran. Why don't we just invade all of those countries and make little democracies of them? It's because it's not feasible. I wish we could help every one of them, but a nation has to wisely pick and choose its battles. If we didn't invade Iraq, we'd have that much more money to help rebuild our economy and help our people.

    I'm not saying that it all boils down to money, but if a police officer can't afford to pay the bills, how does that help the legal system?

    Do we plan to go get every single one? What made Iraq more worthy of democracy than any other country in this world under a dictator?
    So we took out one.

    Thats more than anybody else in the west can claim to have done. So while your busy shifting goalposts, and pointing to all the other troubled spots in the world, maybe you should realize that we did something, somewhere, as opposed to the rest of the free world, who stands by doing absolutely nothing. You should be proud of the work your British troops have done in Iraq and Afghanistan along side the US. Its a bit goddamned more impressive than any effort put forth by anybody else.

    Yes, we should be proud that we spent so much money in Iraq when our own economy is turning to shambles.

    If we REALLY want to do something, open the borders to Mexican immigrants. They have a crime-infested country where hard workers are willing to come over to our country and work for cheap, if we let them. Heck, many are so desperate for a job that they're willing to work for under minimum wage, get verbally abused by Americans, AND send home money to Mexico. We don't have to cross the Pacific Ocean just to be humanitarians. To say we're just trying to help a country is a lie and it's disgusting. Was it a fortunate consequence? Yes, but it's so hypocritical when there are easier things that can be done.

    you mean you would begin to mobilize now to invade a sovereign nation of 70 million? So instead of fighting just the Iranians in power, you would fight all the Iranians.

    no more pussy footing with these rogue countries that are a cesspool for greater future danger.
    well, you better prioritize your rogue countries then. China and North Korea are more dangerous to the US than Iran, shall we attack them first?

    It is only a matter of time before the world catches up with us in military technology so we absolutely HAVE to do the dirty deeds NOW!!!!!
    I think that's what Hitler said.

    No way in hell I attack China. Many Americans may hate them, many Americans may hate socialism, but facts are facts.

    1) They have more money than us, which isn't hard considering...
    2) They have basically all of our money (which we're borrowing from them)
    3) I imagine they have plenty of allies where they're at that are willing to counterattack us (plus it would be hard attacking them on their own soil).

    And if all else fails...
    If they decide to go Japanese Kamikaze on us...
    4) They'd have enough money to financially support it
    5) They'd still have like 5 billion people left
    6) With more children on the way.
