    Imagine another country bombing our capital. I'm going to assume most people would be pissed that a foreign country violently interfered with our government rather than allowing the citizens to handle it through our election process.

    You cannot kill Iranian citizens, whether involved in the government or not, and assume all Iranian citizens will then come to the side of the UN or America. Attacking them will likely either cause them to fight back, killing more people on both sides, or start a civil war in Iran by multiple sides trying to grab the most power. I don't think the current Iranian government has enough power to be able to control it's citizens once bombs start falling.

    Again, look at what happened in Iraq. Have people forgotten already? Aren't we supposed to learn from the past?
    They probably won't like it, but it's better than Iran obtaining nuclear weapons. If this is the only way to stop them, then so be it. But of course sanctions and warnings should come first.

    Also, this won't be another Iraq. Iraq and Afganistan were wars without goals, and the goal became to stabilize their countries. It was also started by the west. If Iran starts a war against Israel, then Israels job is to, make them give up or at least destroy their military. These kinds of war have a target and doesn't last very long. I mean, US could have moved out when they decleared victory, or when they got Saddam. Then US would have been out of Iraq a long time ago. They didn't because they are trying to stabilize Iraq.

    If any violent action is to be taken it should be strictly limited to bombing the nuclear production sites. And even then the information used to determine these sites should be confirmed by using every resource available to us. And it should be confirmed that these locations are specifically being used to produce nuclear weapons. Any bombing of a location that is not directly linked to nuclear production would be greatly looked down upon by the Iranians and the international community.
    *sigh*

    Well at least Apocalypse got it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    It would be nice.

    I'll believe it when I see the manifested results of said "work".

    I believe it is drastically underestimated by the media.
    The U.S. army is capable, sure... but I don't think Americans would foot the bill for it at this point. They might if the U.S. weren't already lead into a false war with Iraq. It's unfortunate in a way that the opportunity for a just war was wasted on disposing of Saddam, when a sleeping beast was right next door with real intentions to carry out nuclear development.

    Capability is not the issue.
