    And neither should we. That is my point. Let's not repeat the costly blunder we made in Iraq.

    The main difference between Iran and Iraq, among other things, is that the Iranian Regime comprises of dedicated Islamic Fundamentalists, who are giving off all the signs of wanting a serious fight!

    It'd be kind of serious if Iran occupied Mexico and Canada I bet they'd have the audacity to say they'd hit us If we wanted a nuke to stop them from invading or something.

    So why did we go to war against Iraq?

    Which sounds just as threatening as what they are saying about Iran now.

    We went to war with Iraq ( Australia went too) for various reasons, chemical warfare against the Kurds, supposed possession of WMD and to finish the job Bush Senior had started ( Kuwait).


    Iran is shaping up to become an enemy with which a war may become inevitable for the reasons I have explained in all my post above, .... Iraq was a different story completely.

    Absolutely not. There is no reason to bargain with this country , that would weaken the US position as a world power amongst other reasons.

    The truth is that Iran is pursuing a nuclear weapons program because it has every intention of attacking the petrodollar system and it believes (rather foolishly) that an arsenal of ballistic nukes will give them strategic leverage against the threat of any American military defense of the petrodollar system.

    You've got your history a little mixed up. We were Saddam's ally when he was at his murderous worst! Reagan had Iraq removed from the Terrorist Nations Listing, and Rumsfeld was over there shmoozing it up with Saddam. Our companies even provided the precursor for the illegal mustard gas that he used. There was no proof of WMD, just like there is no proof Iran is a threat to the US now.

    That's exactly what they warned about Iraq.
