Thank goodness, a leftist with a brain, this forum has precious few of them, as this thread exhibits by posters arguing that the US constitution prohibits the draft despite being pointed to the precise language in the document that it does...
I was referring to the endless terroism and suicide bombings israel has endured for decades by iranian poodles such as hezboolah, hamas and islamic jihad.Let's address your first post. Iran cannot destabilize Israel more than Israeli politicians are doing without nuclear weapons.
Pursuing interests is one thing, conducting suicide bombings murdering hundreds of people is another.And while Iran is acting upon its interests in the other countries, your definition would classify a large number of countries around the world as destabilizing other countries. Every country in history has used terrorism as a political method, not to mention murder.
Spare me, the colonialism ended decades ago, its funny how this pathetic argument has been quietly dropped from excuses for african incompetence and mal-government, the leftist sympathy for arab muslim failings appears bottomless.You ignore the real problems of the Middle East. Getting rid of Iran's government does not fix the Dutch Disease problem which is arguably at the root of the problems of the Modern Middle east.
So are you claiming that islam is not a religion of peace?Removing Iran's government does not fix the millennia long cultural problems within the region and within Islam.
I guess this is a fine example of the abject leftist racism against arab muslims, where they cannot be held to the same norms and demands of civil society.
These regimes, while wretched, are not applying terrorism in other nations as a political method.Removing Iran's government does not remove the corrupt regimes that are explicitly delaying progress in the Middle East.
And why the crocodile tears for un-free regimes, who treat their own citizens so badly, yet no complaints about iran who in the most recent fabricated "elections" murdered and tortured so many of their own people?
This statement, while laughable to people like me who lived there, would probably get you killed if said aloud right now if overheard in teheran or ifshahan.In many ways, Iran government is more progressive then many other Middle Eastern regimes.
We already are, these troops are on active duty. You do understand that yes?1) How would we pay for this
Do not understand this question, as the divisions already exist.2) How would we maintain this force
The US would be going in to liquidate the regime leadership and its republican guard. This is a much shorter, more narror mission than what was needed - and occurred - in iraq.3) How would we maintain rotations for this force / 165,000 troops was not enough to secure Iraq, which was smaller, easier terrain and far less populated. 400,000 was. Iran's population is far, far, far more then Iraq's with terrain resembling Afghanistan's far more then Iraq's.
