    So, we only need to find a peaceful solution, if there is one.
    There is NO peaceful solution. Iran cannot be stopped from building nuclear weapons by saying "Please" or "Go to your room". Ain't gonna happen.

    Breaking their processing facilities, that will stop their progress.

    Nothing else will.

    People who aren't willing to use violence to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions have to become accustomed to the fact that Iran will have enough nukes, and the means to deliver them, and the will to use them.

    Agreed. It is time for Iran's nuclear facilities to be destroyed.

    The best way to take out the American fascists, the ruling class elite, the corrupted political institutions and the American deterioration, would be to bomb the political quarters of Washington DC with controled nuclear detonation, and then proceed to do the same with the Pentagon...

    Thats just to say the best strategy to change Iran, would be to get rid of their government infrastructure in a violent way.

    (PS. If either scenario happened I would not even feel an inch of sadness)

    Uncalled for.
    You owe your life to American soldiers. I am an EU supporter to the grave but...
    uncalled for.

    What do you suggest then? We chain ourself to Iranian tree's so they cant clear the land to build nuclear fabrications?

    It worked in Iraq.
    A country who threatens the world means we can afford to apply the same hostility.

    No I dont. I dont owe my life to American soldiers. And if you refer to World war 2 I wasnt born then. And I probably would have been born even if the NAZIs won. So the argument is irrelevant and flawed. Besides if I in such a scenario owe my life to anyone I owe it even more to Soviet soldiers and the British people than I do American soldiers.

    Why not bomb out government infrsatructure and let the people have the revolution they want? If that is the case we could easily solve the nuclear issue with a post Islamic Iran state with a more liberal and sane government.

    If I was the prime minister of Israel I would rather do this(possibly with controlled nuclear bombing), rather than do the same to nuclear installations.

    Are you arguing that Britain did more to win WWII then America?

    Or are you arguing that because you were born in the UK, the British did more to defend the country then the Americans?

    He wasn't born in the UK and he certainly isn't British.
    The Soviets and British allies would have crumbled had it have not been for the contribution of America.

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.
    History is full of "tough talkers" and the blood they eventually spilled. Assuming this "tough talker" is just kidding is a luxury our leaders are not allowed to have. The U.S. has been playing the anti-nuclear game with Iran since Khomeini decided to restart the Shah's program. The vary last thing the world needs is a North Korea scenario in the Middle East.....but with a zealot's fondness to please a brutal God.

    As far as his fear....who exactly is he worried about in regards to invasion? Iran's history with conflict has always involved other Muslims...not the west. And is nuclear tough talk supposed to suppress his people's desires to finally move beyond their self prescribed oppression?


    Iran's celebration of the possible future destruction of another nation has been quite public. Imagine a nuclear Cold War in the MIddle East between the Sunni, Shia, and the Israelis. Fun, fun, fun.

    Who's worried? It's a strategic concern for which is being taken serious by those who are tasked with our security. The military has gotten quoite used to being ordered to kill and slaughter by people who have never served. I deployed to Somalia under a President that never laced up a boot and I deployed to Iraq twice under a President who's military service consisted of the National Guard. My point is that I will deploy to Iran if that be the call, but again it will be under a President who has never laced up a boot. Actually fighting in a war was not something civilians did when they wanted their revenge post 9/11. It hardly matters.

    And who's calling for a war that doesn't already exist?

    This "War on Terror" was always poorly named. This is not a war on terror. Terror is a symptom. We are up against something much tougher than terrorists. We are up against a civilization's failure to evolve beyond religious superstition, beyond ignorance, and beyond self prescribed cultural failure. People seek to label Iraq and Afghanistan as two separate wars, but they are not. What's happening in North Africa, Yemen, Pakistan, and Iran are all a part of the same grand disease and this will take generations. There is a cultural maturity that must happen throughout this region. And this must happen before they begin parading their nuclear weapons down their Main Streets.
