    We haven't made any declarations of war against Iran.

    We haven't, but we've publicly announced we may launch a preemptive strike against them.

    Yes, but that was after all of these nuclear bomb issues.

    So you assert that Israel is merely a puppet of the USA? Interesting that you express that view in that manner.

    Re: Should we bomb Iran to prevent their getting nuclear weapons

    I understand your point. Apparently, we allowed this to happen and it gets very little press.

    So, how do you propose handling Iran? Do we just attack and blow up everything that moves? Seems like we have no more way of preventing this than we do with NK. Add India and Pakistan into the mix and it seems like you can't prevent them but nobody dares use them.

The SK's are therefore pretty nervous about the idea of resuming hostilities.


    At this point it is generally not believed that the NK's have a nuke small enough to fit on a missle, but there is always some uncertainty about intel. They do appear to have functional nukes however, and there are other ways to use them besides putting them on a missle.

    The thing is once a "rogue nation" HAS nukes, dealing with them just became an order of magnitude more dangerous.... because they might well USE them.

    Attacking and destroying Iran's nuclear facilities will not be easy but it can be done; naturally we should make every reasonable effort to minimize civilian casualties and target our strikes as precisely as possible.

    Puppet may have been the wrong word to use.

    You mean like the time Israel bombed the USS Liberty then claimed it was an accident?

    Maybe so... but I think it was exactly what you meant, and I think it reveals a great deal about where your sympathies are... and where they aren't.
