    Default They cant believe this.

    Iran cant possibly be tricking themselves into believing that they could handle a war with us, could they? It seems they are not only prepared to see if they can match our military might but are willing to by ignoring sanctions.

    I cant see any way we should go to war with Iran right now because it would stretch us way to thin militarily and economicly. Add to that they are allies with China for sure and Russia most likely it would not be a good idea. But lets be realalistic they could not hold a candle to us.

    There are many other ways for Iran to fight a war. They can launch some missiles at US military camps in Iraq. They can strike US ships since they have long range missiles. They also have a vital canal next to them that is responsible for the transport of 1/5 of the World's oil. They take it out and this alone would send oil prices to $200 per barrel and would cripple US economy immediately.

    They could, but they won't. They're all talk, they know the second that something like that would happen we'd destroy them, they would simply cease to exist, completely, and totally. Not nice, and certainly not pleasant, but its what would happen.

    It would cripple their own as well.

    Jensen, I don't understand your points. The issue is whether America is going to attack Iran not vice versa. What Iran is saying is that America will not attack them. If Iran is attacked like Iraq they have nothing to lose. They will do everything that I said above and more.

    America cannot make Iran cease to exist, meaning kill the civilians and children and women because there is something called World opinion. America will cease to exist if it wipes out a Nation of 70 million.

    We aren't going to attack Iran because they're a complete waste of time. Their defense guy, along with Ahmadinejad think they're a whole lot more important than they actually are.

    In your post that I responded to you seemed to be insinuating that they may attack us without provocation, I then provided what in my opinion would result from their undertaking such an action.

    Right, that is what Iran is saying that America will not attack them. Iran has no reason to attack America. It would be suicide.

    in the world public opinion, we are doing the right thing...warning the world of the dangers of a nuclear iran...we will finish our business in Iraq and Afghanistan in plenty of time to gear up for Iran in 3-5 years...we will have launch access from Iraq, Israel, Turkey at some point.

    trust me, we will work our diplomatic magic to put Iran in a bad position...we are going to try to cut off AhmydinnerJacket and his puppet government from inside their own country...Iran's mothers and fathers love their children more than they love AhmydinnerJacket...he is the flavor of the month but when push comes to shove, they are going to see what happened to Iraq and decide that going without running water and electricity for 3 years is no way to live life...

    we will also use our dialogue with putting a defense shield in europe to get Russia on board with economic sanctions agains Iran.

    at the end of the day, the next president is not going to put us into a war unless absolutely necessary but we will never be cut unawares again...we will continue to keep a strong national defense and begin to develop better defensive weapons and tactical weapons that will keep a large military off of the battlefield...

    we could also take out Iran's government pretty quicky if need be as well...while AhmydinnerJacket was at Columbia, someone put a thumb tack size bug on his chair which he still carries around with him...we could launch a missile that we could park in his A$$ if need be...

    My only question is do they really think they could stand toe to toe with us. In my mind it would be like Dan Gable (the USA) wrestling a 10 year old gold medalist at the special olympics (Iran).

    Remember Vietnam? What makes you think Iran is any weaker?
