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

    Those numbers of nuclear weapons are obscene and insane. There's thousands kept on alert and ready to be launched within minutes.

    When you consider that current day thermonuclear weapons are more powerful than the two bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and knowing the devastation inflicted on them as a nation, why do these Countries have stockpiles in the thousands?

    It's a mad world.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    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...........
    You do realize that you’re speaking of an area of the world that uses suicide to attack their enemies. Iran nukes Israel; Iran has now committed political suicide but everyone in Israel is now dead. I’d rather Look bad to other nations and save the lives of 7,765,700 people than let 7,765,700 People die so that I look good politically.

    How would you know? Are you privy to some kind of inside information or something? It is wrong and quite arrogant of you to say that with the certainty that you do.

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

    This is an idea that infuriates me every time someone mentions it. This notion that we have to be the world's savior. The United States has to use preventative strikes, or go into preventative wars.

    We have no business doing anything like that and it goes against the very principles we were founded on. The best thing that our country could do about the situation with Israel and Iran is allow Israel to make their own choices without our input. We should give them the sovereignty that they rightfully deserve. They should make decisions for their country and either face the consequences or get the rewards.

    We have a monumental debt problem to deal with. We have no business interfering with any other country at the present moment.

    The leaders of Iran (the ones that would have the authority to give the order to launch the bomb) have stated that they “WILL” wipe Israel off the face of the map. I would say that that is a good indication that; yes they would.

    I agree with letting them make their own choices. But; Israel is our ally and we should for lack of a better phrase “have their back”.

    Well, you did hit the nail on the head when you said "mad world", as the reason for all these stockpiles of bombs has to do with the fact that at least in the west, we are living in a M.A.D. world. When I was studying political science in the 70s, Kissinger was all the rage, as his doctrine of mutually assured destruction had become the stuff of dogma and was hardly questioned. Well, OF COURSE rational people would refrain from using the bomb that would guarantee their own destruction. I can still remember the absolutely incredulous and dismissive look on the face of one of my profs when I asked that little question that revealed the naked state of the emperor by asking "what if the people controlling the bombs aren't rational?"

    In the case of Iran, what many of their unintelligent defenders here in the west fail to notice is that they have laid out their rationalizations for nuking Israel, and these reasons are not rational if one assumes their own survival is a rational act. They have come right out and said that they can nuke Israel thereby eliminating that Zionist menace, but Israel's retaliation could not possibly destroy the Ummah. Why so many people fail to understand that not everybody thinks like westerners is beyond me, but the Mullahs quite simply don't. The failure to understand where THEY are coming from will lead to far more casualties than confronting them at a time when they can actually be dealt with.

    Iran is mostly Persian..

    I just know the Iranians are not suicidal.

    Iran has needed nuclear power to expand their electrical grid since the 1970s.. and were doing so with approval from the US and Europe.

    The problem is a false one.. Israel is so afraid that they don't want Iran to be prosperous or stable... And, Israel has a reputation for bombing nuclear facilities in both Iraq nd Syria. So, its a problem that causes itself.

    I don't think much of the Iranian government.. but the best way to diminish their power is to let Iran prosper.
