    You know, I was thinking...If by some crazy move Iran did nuke Israel, wouldn't the fallout just blow west to them?? But I guess it wouldn't be all that much...

    Thinking it through, I come up seeing a day when Israelis might just decide to give it up.
    How long a period of security did it offer Israel after Osirak, Iraq?

    I do believe the Iraqi nuclear ambitions were set back decades. Iran is vulnerable....now. Enriched uranium being spun into weapons grade material requires heat, we know where they are. So do the Israelis.

    Israeli jets off of American Carriers, supported by US technology, radar jamming capabilities, no American though in Iranian waters or airspace. Send the Israeli calvary in, Have a lil bagel with cream celebrating the Jewish New Year....and rage all up and over Iran's nuclear facilities....and then go back the next night if it's not done correctly.

    It ain't gonna get easier. Their weapons continue to improve, the Iranians ain't fools, they realize the clock is ticking too.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    As long as they maintain full US support. How will China and Russia deal with such action? What if America continues in its current Progressive direction?

    Our support is not necessarily ground in stone.

    We explain to the Chinese and Russians that Iranian nukes are intolerable and thus, like Osirak, we're gonna alter the Iranian nuclear program a few decades backwards, that's all. Cause......forgetting the Chinese and Russians for a second....the day Iran successfully tests a nuclear weapon...that changes the entire face of the security situation in the Persian Gulf and entire ME overnight.

    What if America continues in its current Progressive direction?
    Then expect another 9-11.

    That's unfortunate but you're correct.

    I agree!

    It's time to disarm the Iranians. They had a chance to play nice... now they can suck missiles, bombs, bullets, and like it.

    he's actually ESCALATING and accelerating his nuke program

    unbelievable
    You mean like our last president?

    Please tell me what Bush did any better? Actually he made the situation worse by invading Iraq and creating a power vacuum.

    The trouble is it's a no win situation. There is nothing we can do militarily or otherwise and Iran knows it. And that is why they are thumbing their noses at the U.S. and the world.

    We don't need a war in three places with this one shutting down world's oil supply in this part of the world, and probably causing a severe depression worldwide. Obama is smart enough to know that. Are you?

    And our military is strained as it is. It would also be just plain wrong to attack a country when a fair number there don't even support their government. If we attacked that support would go down the tubes.

    The only other option are sanctions which aren't effective if the whole world doesn't partake. Good luck with that one.

    So you call a president that knows a no win situation when he sees it and actually thinks through the cause and effect of an attack unlike his predecessor a coward and a weakling? Come on take your partisan blinders off and be a little more aware.

    Would you call it the same thing if your position was attacked and thousands were killed including your family members? Or is "Meat shields" reserved for those you don't know or of a different ethnic origin? Just asking. Sorry i just find those words a little callous and macabre.

    And know I'm not a pacifist. I've served my time in the military but know a military solution should always be the very last resort and only in a very grave situation. I don't see this grave enough. There's no good solution but it's not imminently grave. It's not a given Iran will attack someone. I personally believe the whole nuclear thing for Iran's leadership is self preservation. Using nukes by Iran without provocation would be suicide.

    That said, Ahmadinejad should keep his trap shut. He doesn't exude high intelligence or a good handle on history, especially the holocaust.

    Are you going to be on the deployment? It's easy to talk war when you don't have to be part of it. It's not video game you know.
