    Now choose the option you feel appropriate in the poll.
    Do you think an armed assault by NATO is due? Surely such a thing is inevitable, if this hard liner insists on dragging down Iran with him.
    I think we should stick with the French option.. Diplomacy.. And then if that doesnt work and Iran develops nuclear weapons, then we nuke the country.

    My guess is that the chance of NATO intervention is between remote and non-existant.

    Iran has been active with it's nuclear pursuits for quite a while. The rest of the world chatters and squawks but that is about it. Don't really see Obama taking sunstantial action, and without the US involved no one in Europe is going to move forward. Israel would probably address the situation on their own, but doubt that it is any longer possible to surgically take out the Iranian facilities from the air.

    So Iran will just keep the centrifuges spinning. And before too long this will all become a moot point for discussion.

    Israel will probably strike before anyone else has a chance to.

    Is one regime all you could name? There are currently tons of regimes with UN sanctions. North Korea probably the most obvious one, and look, they are sending rockets to space.

The UK and France would never even consider war with Iran (or any other European power for that matter) without going in side by side with the Americans.

    I also cant see Americans being so vocal on the issue and actually not touching a war in the event it did break out.

    France because of its president
    What about him? France isnt nearly as vocal or pressing on the issue as Germany and there hardly American bootlickers.

    A coup because I doubt the AKP will lose in mid 2011 ( it would probably have to form a coalition government), and that should the US or Nato decide to attack, it will likely be before then anyway
    I dont know but i heard the last elections where disastrous for them.



    Generally because the second leg downward on this economic trainwreck will have occured by then, and no european country will have money to launch another war.
    Conspiracy theory or bad assumption with no significant evidence.

    I believe "surgical airstrikes" by NATO like Yugoslavia is as close to conflict NATO will get with Iran.

    That line is just too too good to avoid a French surrender joke.

    In a world where the "average level" of technology increases all the time, its going to be more and more difficult to prevent such things. The ONLY way forward is for humanity to unite in common ideals, goals and equally worthy lives, that protect from anyone needing to be criminal or terrorist.

    Wrong. States French policies is to use nuclear weapons on Iran in any scenario of threat or actual attack on them and possibly their allies.

    That's a very good point. I hadn't considered the "global reputation". If that truly is a concern for Iran then they have to do this very carefully. I'm guessing they'll continue to pursue nuclear technology under the "peaceful" loophole allowed in the NPT.

    Because they agreed not to do so... and because it's a bad idea for a violent, murderous, theocracy that is know to be the world's foremost state sponsor of terrorism.

    Therefore, Iran should never be allowed to posses anything more dangerous than a sling shot.

    Besides, I do not see many other option except going into an all out war.
    I like what the Jews have done over the past, a few air strikes here and there to stall progress. A bigger collaboration with Israel and NATO is needed to declare huge airstrikes into the region and destabilize the central government and its nucleur pursuit.

    Come on Tashah, you can do better than that.

    Because Iran has opted for the complete destruction of a neighbouring nation as official state policy, because Iran is incapable of civilized diplomacy, and because Iran is one of the worst violators of human rights. Therefore such rights for a country to pursue nuclear ambitions becomes unrealistic if they cannot even be trusted to not drop them all over the ME.

    Simple as.

    In the future if they decide to pursue secular Democracy and human rights they may have there nuclear ambitions back.
