    Military action should be the last resort, right now the western powers should strike Iran with massive sanctions.
    "Military action should be the last resort" is such a cliche. I absolutely disagree with it. Military action should be the resort when the time is right. When our missions are easier to obtain and when our military won't have to needlessly bleed because we waited until the "last resort." In the end, who defines the "last resort" anyway? Military commanders? Politicians privy to intel? Politicians not privy to intel? The fat couch potato who never laced up a boot but saw a really good expose on T.V.?

    According to the Constitution, its supposed to be Congress, but we haven't paid attention to that clause in over 50 years.

    Didn't you know? The region isn't exactly a grave mystery hidden behind the shadows of a curtain. How much talk do you need before you just recognize what this region is and what lies ahead?

    Then why start now? The Congress of old could be informed of all the details. Steadly over the decades our technology has exponentially threatened our security as much as protected it. Today's Congress is a twitter away from exposing whatever they wish to a media world who would rather see drama, destruction, and death in their papers than peace (and it really doesn't matter what is desgtroyed). Times have changed. Surely if the hero of the Democratic Party and Europe's savior sees enough in the intel that urges him to be more forceful then there must be something there. Of course, acknowledging that Obama isn't a warmonger bent on painting Iran as a false threat means that Bush may have been on to something too.

    Ralph Peters predcicted two things about Iran back in 1999. Either we will be forced to deal with an Iran on the nuclear verge or the Iranian people will finally stand up and take the reigns of their destiny away from the tyrants who oppress them. Seems to me that time is running out for the "peaceful" means of ridding the region of another thorn.

    You think Israel is going to strike Iran before they go nuclear?

    They would be stupid not to. Of course, behind closed doors even Europe will breathe a sigh of relief.

    What we're going to do is exactly what we have been doing. Like a dog chasing it's tail

    Iran's gonna sabre rattle. Russia is going to protect Iran. America is going to protest. China is gonna sell to the highest bidder.

    And then one morning, after years of denial, some Iranian guy, who needs a bath and a shave, is going on television and will laughing pronounce that Iran now has a nuclear weapon. Eat **** world.

    Study long, study wrong. Pull the trigger, once and for all, on Iran. But the US can't go it alone. (Thanks Dubya. ) And why should we? But since we are already entrenched in Iran's back-yard (Iraq) I would tell Iran to either **** or get off the pot. **** Iran.

    Yeah, I agree. Iran has needed a foot up its ass for some time now.

    The western powers should mind their own business and butt out of Iranian affairs.
