    I cannot characterize our invasion and almost a decade of occupation in Iraq as restraint. Sorry!

    I meant our restraint in not attacking Iran...so far.

    Yup that was the stretch of propaganda that I was referring too. WHy is it that you support Irans Military industry complex so much? Who do you think all those arms are going to? peaceful groups?
    We didn't have any large scale attacks, we had a 19 Saudi terrorists steal some of our own airliners. Attacking and invading Iraq sooner would not have stopped that. I don't support Iran, I am just not paranoid about Iran.

    Well, I guess they better hope that Iran does not strike back then.

    So you think the advances in bunker penetrating weaponry developed for Afghanistan has been exaggerated?

    I don't have the number off the top of my head. I suggest you google it, just as I would.

    I do remember an interview with an Arab businessman who's warehouse was destroyed by a Katyusha. He was holding his hands up and asking, "Why me? I'm not even Jewish!"

    I know, and I hope a full-scale invasion is NOT planned. I hope military action of any kind is unnecessary. But if it does, it will be most likely limited strikes on very specific targets. I could not support anything more than that.
