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.

    Everyone prefers peace (ok, maybe there are a few sociopathic idiots that don't), but peace on their terms. And in the US, we want peace, we just disagree on how to achieve it.

    Btw, the Arabs/Muslims did try it, 1967, got their butts handed to them when Israel figured out no amount of talking was going to stop it and instead launched a surprise offensive. As a result, Israel unified Jerusalem, and took control of the Sinai Peninsula, Golan Heights, West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Except for Jerusalem, Israel has been obligated to return those areas in return for peace with it's neighbors. Funny, Israel's only real requirement is to be recognised by the people there and have peace with them, in over 40 years of occupation, the Palestinians haven't been able to do that. Israel gave a limited self-government, the Palestinians elected former Terrorist, when they didn't attack Israel and want to recognise it and have peace, the Palestinians then elected a more extremist faction that still tries to carry out attacks against Israel, including a very large number of rockets shot at Israeli civilian targets.

    Iran, Iraq, Syria and other countries have been supporting the PLO and other terrorist organizations constantly attacking Israel throughout it's history. One of the big issues about the whole Iran Nuclear thing is the fact they have sworn to destroy Israel and some believe it because of the continuous sponsorship of terrorist and attacks against Israel. I do believe they will attack someone, just not for sure who. Israel, the US or Sunni Muslim countries. Iran has been the largest supporter of insurgents in Iraq (not Al Queda as some want us to believe, Iran and Al Queda actually hate each other, the whole Shia-Sunni thing again), Syria was the other large supporter. During the whole Iraq debacle, Sunni's and Shi'ites actually seemed more interested in killing each other than Americans and generally only went after Americans when we tried to stop them killing each other or were otherwise in the way. Iran is a serious threat to Afghanistan, not in Afghan, but to. They don't support the Taliban or Al Queda and if we pull out, Iran is a prime suspect of who will gain control there, them or the Taliban. Sucks either way for us.

    So, the results of the poll speak out loud. It's a democracy. Period.

    Maybe I am being a bit ungracious here, but I really don't think a poll on DP is going to affect the decisions of those in place to make them on this subject.

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

    If we find information that Iran is developing nuclear weapons then yes we should bomb them. It would be better to strategically bomb installations in Iran, Then to let a country (whose leaders have expressed a stated goal of wiping another country off the map) Obtain that means by which to do so.

    First of all America is not the only one with the bomb. I say let them have the nuclear bomb, and after Iran and Israel use them against each other the area will be devastated. This can only be a good thing for us here in America. The pesky problem of the people in the Middle East will be solved now that they are all irradiated. The Oil Supply for the world would come from north and South America (more money for us). We also could take over whatever we want to go over there under the guise of it being a humanitarian mission. Let’s not be stingy now; share the nukes.

    What do you think the response would be if Iran nuked Israel?

    Do you think Iran knows it would be complete suicide to do such a thing?

    Do you think Iran is willing to accept complete and total suicide by starting a nuclear war?

    Iran would lose any and all support from Russia and China.

    However - if we strike first...........

    Obviously people do listen to this man's opinion. However, his opinion or analysis does not render my view worthless.

    The US should go in there kick some ass, take some names and go through these underground nuclear facilities and determine once and for all what they are doing down there. Enough talk, enough delays. If Iran is developing nuclear weapons take capability away from them.

    BTW your expert can come along and garner information for his next book...
