    How about you stick to the topic and stop with the personal attacks
    This is not worthy of a response. I am tired of this nonsense.

    Great, glad to know Israel is bright enough to know how to handle their neighbors without our support!

    The principle that ones values and ethics don't change according to how many people are on ones side. You think it is ok for a country to preemptively attack another country that has not attacked them (Iran vs. US in Iraq) if that country is attacking a more powerful one. But what about Israel vs. Islam? Where's your support there?

    Anyway, deciding what is right and wrong according to who has more power is disgusting. That you would include power in the assessment of ethics is loathsome.

    Your claim was:

    It would prevent a more grave, deadly situation

    Your link does not confirm your claim.

    My principles and ethics do no include sacrificing innocent civilians for control the worlds remaining cheap oil, which was our reason for being in Iraq. Iran is of no military threat to the US, and Israel already has nukes, they can take care of themselves.

    You should just admit that you made a mistake (like sharon should have, when she blamed the Kurds for genocide against them and when she presumed I wanted to wipe out Muslims) and move on. Being ok with preemptive strikes based on the size or power of a country is moronic.

    To me it does together with their threats they can reach US interests with their current weapons. I do not see a reason to tempt fate when Iran has openly declared that they would do harm to the US.

    "Iran: We Can Hit 35 US Bases in 'Minutes'"

    "Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force, told reporters the U.S. has 35 bases around Iran and all are "within the reach of our missiles" and could be hit "in the early minutes after an attack," according to an English-language report from Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency. The bases were no threat but instead an "opportunity" for the Iranian military, Hajizadeh said according to Fars "....



    Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps shot off missiles during a televised military drill. (PressTV)





    Take your head out of the sand.

    I have never said one word about not starting preemptive wars based on the size of the country. That is your strawman. The point I was making is that I believe in defense only against an actual military threat to this country.

    An actual military threat to the United States is what was missing in Vietnam, Iraq, and now Iran.
