    Only as a last resort.

    Which resorts should be taken first? Diplomacy? A nuclear deal, perhaps?

    Sanctions led to the negotiations for a deal.
    A nuclear deal should be taken, yes, but not any nuclear deal.
    In case there is no good deal, sanctions should be restored until a good deal can be reached.

    Until the sanctions regime crumbles, which it very well would if the US walks away from a decent deal. The sanctions regime crumbles, the US has very little leverage.

    The US is the major P5+1 negotiator, but not the sole negotiator. I would surmise a unanimous P5+1 consensus is necessary to either implement a deal or to walk away.

    The more I read about the deal and what cones out of iran, the less it sounds like a good deal can be reached. But don't forget that an American President should be almost forced to use harsh means, if the sanctions broke down. So I guess it would be sort of like before iraq and a question of whether countries like Russia and Germany wanted to push the us into war again.

    I'm not a pacifist. Obama, and to a lesser point Bush, dialed back our rules of engagement that soldiers should have a lawyer to accompany them to justify wether or not they should engage the enemy. As long as these conditions exist, I'm not in favor of putting them in harms way. I won't support any war until the rules of engagement lets us kill em all and lets God sort it out. We should use overwhelming power, eliminate the enemy and then leave. Modern warfare is too PC to fight.

    In the interim, the occasional drone strike kills families and pisses off the neighborhood all in the name of not acquiring captives so the empty beds in GITMO can be filled.

    That's the wonderful thing about the internet. Use it, read it and understand that there are many sides to most issues. Do your own work.

    I have done lots of research, and I have never relied on the internet for most of it--or on articles by left-wing propagandists who are always trying to defame this country.

    I call BS that you haven't used the Internet for most of your research. And if you haven't, you're pretty silly for ignoring one of the best tools for research in the history of the universe.
