So, yeah, the WMD thing was just wishful thinking and a path toward a big, fat, profitable war where America couldn't possibly lose. Iraqi's were happy to see us. We killed a bad man. A multi-trillion dollar adventure.

    Iran is different. They may be cuckoo but they also have a lot of intelligent scientists and engineers. They make cars. They're a real country in spite of the religious madness.

    It seems like the Israeli's want to do this. They are just as capable as we are. They have one of the best Air Forces in the world. So, this seems real good except for the backlash.

    IF we are SURE they are building a nuke, unchain Israel. If not sure, we better give this more thought. Wars are good for MIC business but they're tough on us ordinary folk. I see more and more disabled soldiers who look as sad and crazed as those who were in Vietnam. Another disabled generation. It's easy to enter a war. It's not so easy for all this promise to die or be injured.
    Sure, ok. After Israel does that and piss off the entire Arab/Muslim world and they retaliate, then we would have an excellent reasont to wipe all of them out instead of only one of them. Cool, I didn't realize you were capable of such ruthlessness. I like it.

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

    I did say there would be backlash.

    Otherwise, if you have followed this thread all the way through, I'm advocating kissing their ass in a desperate effort to call all this off. However, if it's down to that, yes, let the Israelis go instead. If the Arabs thought they could kick Israels ass, they would already have tried. They can't. The Israelis have the warfare thing down too good.

    So, I prefer peace but if not, then minimally invasive surgery.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Who cares if he is a 10th time Pulitzer winner.

    He is not threaten daily by Iran.

    He should go back to writing books, not being a military analyst.

    I have read that in Israel, Most of the public opposes an Israeli strike on Iran

    How are you more threatened than the majority of people you live among.

    Or how it's SUPPOSED to work... it seems they've been ever increasingly bypassing checks and balances and nobody seems to worry about it and in turn, noone is held accountable. I'm not sure I like the way it's going.

    Funny thing is, the U.S. has a long history of putting dictators into power because they play our puppets and when they decide they don't need us anymore, we have to go in an militarily throw them out. You'd think we'd learn our lesson but we just keep on doing it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Which, of course, simply isn't true. But you keep being deluded if it makes you happy.

    Israel doesn't listen to us now, we don't have to unchain them, we don't have them chained now. The second they think they can get away with something, they'll do it in a heartbeat.
