All this nuclear bomb talk seems to be missing one major point. Hasn't anyone taken into account a dirty bomb, one little atache case type bomb would put NYC outa commission for the next 500 years!!!! I'm sure it's been discussed at higher levels and that may just be why there haven't been any strikes yet!! I think I'd be more concerned with that senario at this point and that's why I say smoke them now. Find out when all the Iranian guberment officials are all together along with I'ma- nuta -job and fire -um up!!!! Just make sure you get the rest of the EU behind you so Russia & China wouldn't dare to do anything. And screw the UN there time is past in my opinion, the've turned into just anouther major lib orginization that causes more problems than it cures as far as I'm concerned, they just want to be the worlds one dictator (new world order)?? It's going to happen at some point in time anyways, lets get it done before this country has to face anouther Pearl or Trade ctr attack. We all see how far we've gotten after the trade center attack. Wern't no pussy footing around after Pearl!!!! Do we want to get into endless "police actions" for the next, well however long it takes, to keep this country safe from the nut jobs that mean us harm? Or Strike before they can strike us or close the strights of Hormuse. A few ships stragitaclly sunken there would close the strights for years and that they could easly do. Mabye that would, FINALLY, prompt this country to develop our own resorces, and stand united, that would be one of the few up-sides to the closing of the strights, but at a terrible cost world wide. But for sure we can't just stand by with our heads stuck in the sand!! I might be wrong on this, but I have always been premptive when I've faced bullies, yup got a bloody nose a couple times but I've gotten respect and no one messed with me afterwards. And that's what this country has to decide if we are going to remain the country we've been in the past, or go the route of the EU where every one needs to be hand held and guided through life by some lib dictators, from this country or other countries. It's time for a real leader and no more political correctness and ass kissing of some third world thugs. We stand strong NOW or face the consiquences later!! That's what were facing weather or not anyone wants to admit it or not. There, I feel better after that rant!!! just my .02 for whats it's worth.
