    Mindless aggression? We're not talking about a drunk guy in a bar picking fights. We're talking about a strategic and tactical ally, whose intelligence services are superior to our own, gathering information on facility locations and taking them out. You may be able to live with a nuclear-armed Iran, but anyone with any common sense is not. What else do they have to do to convince you that they will use them?

    Also, how do you know how many nuke facilities Iran has? Furthermore, how do you know what we do and don't know about them? Your argument is based in wild speculation, to say the least.

    Well if Rathi is right in thinking that these strikes will only set program back a few years then are these strikes going to get us anywhere? In a few years time the Iranians will just be in the same possition as before except that if they wherent developing a weapons program before they will have more legitimacy in doing so.

    So you are proposing that we allow these nukes to be built because Iran will just try to build them again anyway? Cool beans! I'm just gonna stop dusting my house. Hell, it's just gonna get dusty again anyway! How about every time they begin to build a nuclear facility we blow the s/hit out of it. I bet after a while it will get quite expensive for them. Just a hunch

    And you're also gonna make the argument that a strike on their facilities will grant them legitimicy in future nuclear endeavors? Wow. What could possibly make you think that? Think for a second. "Our nuke sites were blown up, therefore we now legitimately have the need for nuclear weapons!" Now does that sound like it makes sense to you? I mean honestly, tell me if it does.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Personally, despite the lunatic rantings of people saying Iran's leadership is crazy, nothing supports their rantings. Iran will use its nukes like North Korea, aka, not using them beyond diplomacy and internal domestic legitimacy building. But once Iran gets nukes, you can bet on everyone else in the region trying to get them. The law of large numbers comes up and when you couple that with the general instability of the region, the outcome is almost certainty to be bad.
    This is very true. Fortunately, the United States has more influence with Saudi Arabia and Egypt than we do with Iran. I hope we can build our alliance with those nations and promise to encompass them under our nuclear umbrella, in exchange for a promise not to build nukes themselves.

    Israel is the size of New Jersey and is 1,000 miles away from Tehran. And it would be flying over Arab states who would be reluctant, at best, to acquiesce to the use of its air space for an Israeli bombing campaign. There is simply no way Israel is capable of knocking out Iran's nuclear sites.

    I'm saying we don't have any good options for dealing with it.

    All I know is what I've read from interviews with people familiar with Iran. The consensus seems to be that they've learned from the mistakes of Iraq and Syria, and have spread their nuclear sites throughout the country and hidden them in difficult-to-bomb locations.

    Are you a member of the intelligence community who has been working on the Iran issue? If not, your argument is based on speculation as well. The difference is that *I* am not the one beating the war drums based on speculation.

    Based upon what laughable nonsense do you make this claim?

    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.
    Sorry to say, but this forum is frankly one of the worst I've ever seen, the moderation is laughably bad.

    If this forum had even 3 more posters with this intelligence level, I'd come here more often, but as I said, this forum sucks.
