    If Iran wants nuclear weapons, I'm sure Israel will be happy to provide one. Delivered by air, from 30,000 feet. With a nice encouraging message: "Yo! Ayatollah! Research this!"

    Our biggest job may be convicing the Israelis not to do that.

    Two of my friends had just travelled to Iran. I would have been miffed if they got caught up in any nukings. How about more localized solutions?

    Nobody really want that, but it's a definate possibility given the recent rantings of Iran's president.

    The last thing we need is nukes going off in the middle east. No matter where they actually came from, you know that we'll get blamed. That should be our last resort.

    Im sure that all of this chest-thumping by the "international community" will show Iran the error of their ways, and cause them to cooperate with global interests.

    I don't think that Israel will (or can) turn all the sand in Iran to glass. They would simply destroy the reactor at issue.

    Chest thumping backed by considerable military power and the will to use it. Ask Saddam.

    This is a big mistake on Iran's part. Look for them to be identified as sponsors of insurgency and terrorism in Iraq. That will justify military action in Iran, who has already been named in the 'axis of evil' speech.

    "Scorn of the West" in one hand, you-know-what in the other. Guess which one fills up faster.

    I'm sure Bush will find a way to fit them into his Crusade somehow, sooner or later. Sad though that they are the ones with the real nuclear capability and yet we are playing over in Iraq.

    Ive devolped a thesis.

    Iraq>Iran> N. Korea.

    Iraq was good practice for Iran. Iran will be good practice for Korea.

    or, maybe, well just stick to iraq;)

    We've won in Iraq - or at least that'll be the story soon. With elections coming up, they need to get that turd out of the punchbowl fast. It'll be a grand victory. After the mid-term elections they'll move on to Iran. I'd forget about N. Korea, it's not a direct threat to Israel and they've got no natural resources that we need.

    I think Iran will be a very unfortunate war and LONG one. I don't think we have much of a choice. They are a very dangerous and large problem.

    The sad part is, the people there (well over 90% of them) love the U.S. and want to be "liberated."

    As it is, there are dozens of demonstrations everyday where the youth are protesting...

    I have to admit, <it's foolish to aggravate> israel and the united states, at a time when the US has armies to the east and west of your country and a sizeable airforce within 1000 miles of your capitol.

    They are pressing all the right buttons, and it is only a matter of time before they get their holes stomped.

    About the iranian people welcoming us as liberators, wait until we start bombing them and then jumpy marines move in and start shooting the civilians. Still, fighting iran now is probably better than fighting nuclear iran in 5 years.

    Israel will bomb (conventional) the nuke plant in Iran sometime in the next few months. They have to because when a President of a country says that your country should be wiped off the face of the earth and then says that we are going to develop nuclear weapons, what choice do they have. If they don't and Iran builds a bomb, sometime in the future Isreal will get nuked. Also, they have done this in the past.

    I can understand removing seals.

    I mean, they make that weird barking noise, you gotta keep 'em wet, they need fresh fish, they've got pretty massive teeth...overall pretty annoying.

    Problem with the "conventional" part is that alot of the facilities are underground. you can't get at them with conventional weapons.

    Does it really matter if Iran persues a nuke program? Seriously, what's one more nuke added to a sea of millions. I dunno, sometimes I just hear a voice saying, "I am the only nation professional enough to have nuclear weapons. . ." Is it not every nation's right to provide for the common defense? How better to defend against an existing nuclear power than by having nukes of your own? Mutual Assured Destruction still works between countries.

    And another thing. . .it really bugs when Bush (or anyone, really,) says "Nuke-you-ler" Only one u in the word, folks.
