    Izzy is an ally; almost everyone else in that region hates us, somewhere between casual hate and hate-your-guts-dogs-and-children hatred.

    And if we attack Iran you don't think that will happen? And you want us to be the direct cause?

    It would depend on the size of the warhead. I doubt either side would have anything too devastating. And the majority of oil comes from countries that wouldn't be involved in the war. Oil prices would go up, but not drastically.

    And what do you think will be the first thing Iran will do if you bomb them? That's right, attack Israel!
    Why are Americans willing to start WW3?

    Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Israel for three, two of which have nukes.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    We can take Iran today.

    If we wait until Iran has nukes that can be mounted on missles, it is too late. Attacking them then would be too risky. They know this, and are stalling for time and playing the media for sympathy from those who mean well but don't know any better.

    There are two main ways to enrich uranium. One is useless for weapons; the other is multi-purpose, can be for energy or weapons. According to my friend the physicist, Iran is using the second method. Wonder why.

    Nope, but being broke is a pretty damned large barrier to spending billions more on another war.

    People were talking that WW3 crap about Iraq and Afgan too. Didn't happen.


    If we WAIT until Iran has nukes, different story.
