    Re: Iran rejects diplomacy: its time for war

    They would have done well to shoot down Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's plane on his way back from the UN last month while it was in mid Atlantic using a missile from a sub. We could have said oh my how awful we'll help with the search for the wreckage. hen make sure none was ever found.
    Moammar Gadhafi would made a nice target too.
    Lets not clutter up the threat by responding to this obvious foolishness.

    Brilliant plan. But I think the Iranians might have figured it out.

    And what would that accomplish? To save time, can you just provide a comprehensive list of all the countries with whom you want to immediately fight a war? And an analysis of where all these extra troops are going to come from?

    And the logistics of an air-only campaign would be a nightmare. Iraq would never agree to let us base there, Afghanistan and Kuwait are too remote from some of the prime targets, and Israel and Saudi Arabia are too far away in general.

    Not true.

    We don't know where they all are
    Impossible to know, but we do know the location of many facilities, including those made in secret.

    and of the ones that we DO know about, some of them are underground or in the side of a mountain. Not exactly prime bombing targets.
    We have powerful munitions designed especially for attacking hardened targets. We can also custom build even more powerful ones if desired.


    And the logistics of an air-only campaign would be a nightmare. Iraq would never agree to let us base there, Afghanistan and Kuwait are too remote from some of the prime targets, and Israel and Saudi Arabia are too far away in general.
    We have strategic bombers, aerial refueling and carriers. All of Iran is well within range.

    Since the world has wasted over 6 years trying to negotiate with fascist murderers, and those murderous criminals - who have slaughtered their own citizens on the street and in their gulags - have refused to participate in the plan offered by the IAEA/UN/EU and US, there is no "diplomacy track" left to go on, as if there ever was one in the first place.

    Really, what intelligent person would ever hope to strike a fair bargain with criminals who lie, cheat and steal every day of their lives - plus murder civilians across the globe?

    The US, Israel and EU can now safely destroy the iranian government and its nuclear program, leading to complete regime change, as they can easily state that they tried "diplomacy," but the fascists will not give up theri nuclear weapons program.
    Time for war, you say? Well, go get yourself a gun, find as many like-minded individuals as you can, and go invade Iran.

    Iran smells weakness with Obama, and who can blame them. Even FRANCE has criticized Obama for his naive foreign policy stances.

    We are officially a joke now. Thank you, far left.

    What we always do. Use the Israeli Air Force to bomb the nuclear sites just as we did a few years ago with Syria. Of course, that would necessitate a strong tactical alliance with Israel, which Obama has done extensive damage to in his short time in power.

    1) Iran's nuclear program is a lot more advanced than Syria's was.
    2) Iran's nuclear program is spread out over thousands of sites, instead of one specific location like Syria's was.
    3) Iran's nuclear program contains facilities that are buried in the sides of mountains, unlike Syria which is in the open desert.
    4) It's over 1,000 miles from Tel Aviv to Tehran, whereas Syria is adjacent.

    In law enforcement they use a tactic they call "tag" in dealing with bad guys all the time as a way to work there way up the food chain to the head bad guy. The same would work on people who send others out to be suicide bomb martyr. You should have noticed you have never hear of the guys at the top ever wanting to visit Allah for a chance at 72 virgins themselves?
    By taking out the front man and quietly playing tag with those pulling the strings, you might get better results than talking to idiots. You'll find if you do a bit of research rather than relying on propaganda that most of these religious leaders seldom live the lives they preach and demand of others.

    On another note. There is no need to do anything but hit Iran's nuclear sites with over whelming air power and in the process take out a large portion of there offensive military capabilities.

    Or you could always just wait until they build a bomb and drop it on Israel which would cost the lives of millions of Iranian civilians who by the way, like the west in the retaliatory strike Israel would surely mount using massive amounts of H-bombs they most certainly have in large numbers and in the process drawing Russia or China or both into a larger war.

    You could always just sit back and do nothing in the hope and belief that the hopelessly inept Peace Prize winner Messiah Obama will use his supernatural, miraculous powers to perform an extraordinary miracle of biblical proportions and bring peace a love to the middle east that will last for a thousand years.
