    Fact is, Iran is not our problem.

    They are not our neighbor.

    It's not us or them.

    Europe has a much bigger stake in what Iran does than we do. let them worry about Iran.

    Iran is in no position to invade or attack the USofA so we should not be striking first based on little more than assumptions and fear-mongering.
    Exactly. Who the hell are we to say who is responsible enough to have such things when we are the only ones who have ever even detonated a WMD.
    Iranians are not a bunch of crazy towelheads - I think that is just propaganda. Be careful what you wish for - war isn't going to be something you watch on tv from halfway around the world anymore.
    What bothers me is this allegiance to Israel our leaders have displayed all throughout history. It seems e little too much. The idea that Israel is such a great ally that we have to put their interests ahead of ours... where did that come from?

    Yup, it's called fleecing.

    That is the answer.
    Nothing, Jesus is dead, if he ever existed at all. Let's try that again, with reality.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So I guess I should reword my question?

    What will happen if they get "working" nukes?

    So, what? They won't nuke America, most certainly. May be they will nuke Israel, if Israel doesn't nuke them first.
    But why has the U.S.A. to be involved in this?

    Based on what they've said, they may well launch on Israel based on their messianic Isalmic beliefs, and perhaps the US too if they have anything that can reach us.... and there are more ways than just by ICBM btw.

    They call Israel "the little Satan".... but they call us "The GREAT Satan". Might want to bear that in mind.

    Same thing that happened when everyone else got working nukes. Not a whole lot.

    I agree. The government may be barbaric, but I feel for all the citizens who really don't have any say in anything and are completely innocent.
