    And it is likely that Israel would detect the nuclear launch and vaporise Iran in seconds. Its called Mutually assured destruction and it would serve Iran right for trying to nuke another country.
    Or they just might turn Iran into glass if they think that nuke exists...

We went to war against Iraq because he invaded Kuwait and destabilized oil production. Oil is the life blood of technology and industry. Even that tupperware product holding a delicious PB & J is produced from oil. Iran is a fanatical country. It's government has supported terrorists organizations in the Middle East. It's president, with the blessing of the Majlis, has boasted on the destruction of another Middle Eastern nation. The deep hatred and disgust practiced between the Sunni and the Shia is legendary and historical. Sure...where's the harm or threat with a nuclear Iran (Shia).....and then a nuclear Saudi Arabia (Sunni). With nuclear toys, the tribes of the Middle East can have a blast. The environmentalists would have a heart attack while the rest of us get used to a world without oil products.

    But let's address the threat of nuclear launch. Is Iran that stupid? Wouldn't it be easier to simply give a device to a local terrorist so that they can't be held responsible? Who's to say they had 11 or 10 in their inventory?

    Still don't see the threat? I bet you do, you just don't want to acknowledge the world you live in.

    At this point, I think we don't have to worry. While I know it's not best to make assumptions, and to be overconfident, Isreal's Intelligence Services are incredible. While not technologically better then the US Intelligence Services, they get things done. If Isreal got information that Iran was giving nuclear weapons to a local terrorist group, they would attack Iran, and kill the terrorists.

    If the terrorists succeed in their attack, I personally feel Isreal would attack Iran in a knee-jerk reaction, assuming that the weapon originated from Iran, which would be a fair guess. Iran knows this, and for that reason, they would never make a nuclear weapon. They'll, in all probability, get the materials ready for it, and keep them ready in a threatening manner, nothing beyond that.

    If they do go beyond the point I've stated, they would be practically assuring their own destruction. Whether that means the entire country, or just a few key leaders, there will be bloodshed in Iran if they make a nuclear weapon.

    No I get my oil from Canada, Mexico, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and Nigeria not from trees but from those countries above and we do produce some oil as well. I know the extent that oil plays in our everyday lives my family consists of Chemical engineers.

    All I'm seeing is tough talk by a desperate leader who doesn't want to get invaded and who is trying to suppress his people who are protesting. And I thought that Iran never said they wanted to wipe off Israel from the world, because there wasn't a farsi word for "wipe". Anyways all I see are a bunch of old people who are fighting with words but happy to engage because they won't have to go to battle.

    I guess what I am saying is that we don't have to worry and that there are way to many people calling for a war but how many of you that are calling for a war will actually go fight in the war?

    No, it's not what the Constitution authorizes.

    It's what the Constitution requires.

    That Bush and the Congress refuse to obey the Constitution doesn't mean we didn't have to project rerpisals on Afghanistan for their act of war upon us.

    That Congress does not adhere to the Constituiton is an indictment of the fools that send those criminals to office, since they stopped demanding the Constitution be obeyed.

    One could also argue that the authorization by Congress for the President to use force to depose Hussein was a "declaration of war" since the Constitution does not specify format.

    This is called "quibbling".

    Yeah, so my point is the Islamofascists have managed to convince themselves that we are there to Christianize and Colonize there lands.
    This is why an Iranian full out ground offensive and occupation would only confirm there "beliefs" further.
    Best we stay away from them and let them kill each other. I still think air strikes to stop there nuclear ambitions shouldn't be dismissed.
