    I wonder what those people think now.
    Personally, like most, I thought it was a long shot under Bush, and think it is a long shot now. People who made comments like that are part of a tiny extreme.

    It's not a stupid idea to have a plan. It's always good to plan in event of a worst case scenario, and I appreciate that there are large numbers of military personnel engaged in that at all times, including my beloved. It would be stupid to IMPLEMENT a plan to invade Iran, as matters stand right now.

    The Obama's plan, like GWB's plan, is not to invade.

    Obama's plan, like The Bush's plan, includes everything from air and missile strikes to total war. Obama will pick the level of the plan needed when it is needed.

    That's right. There isn't a singular plan. There are dozens of possible responses to dozens of possible scenarios.

    OK, so.... implementing a plan to invade woudl be stupid.
    Given that there are numerous plans that do not include invasion... what's your point?

    Re: Iran: War Option on the Table

    obama's plan, laid out a thousand times during his beatitude of a campaign, was to TALK to the leaders of iran

    he was gonna reachout and change our image abroad, remember?

    after that, he had no fallback (ask his defense secty)

    sanctions are nowhere, sorry (ask putin and hu, for starters, then you can try to budge brazil and turkey...)

    Well, you said:
    It would be stupid to IMPLEMENT a plan to invade Iran,
    You also said that:
    There are dozens of possible responses to dozens of possible scenarios
    Do you believe that it would be stupid to implement any of those? Why/why not?
