Frogman-thank you for your well thought out,rational assesment of the situation-it is nice to see that here,maybe even if some of these countries can't get along,at least WE can.Unity among like-minded folks will be needed in the coming times.There was a poll on this subject here,I didn't think anything major would come of this particular conflict [Iran],but the most recent actions have changed my mind.It is sad to see this happen between us,at one time Iran was one of the most western styled countries in the area,and had brung itself into the modern world.There were lots of problems also,but progress was being made.Since the fall of the Shah,it has regressed hundreds of years socially,while retaining the technology of today.Iran is also much differant geograhpicaly than Iraq,a ground war there is definately going to be difficult and is best left alone.As for bombing it into a parking lot-who could afford the gas to get there?Perhaps bombing it into something useful like a site for lunar training.... ---bil
There will be no ground war in Iran. If there is, it will be limited to the Border of Iraq..
The big question is what will be their response...
This time it will be them who pushes the blade into us.
They have nothing to loose but think they have PARADICE to gain.
Just a matter of a bit more time.
Well, this is a classic example of what happens when you sit around for 30 years with your thumb up your ass, expecting someone else to do your dirty work for you..
over and over the same story...
A bit too risky to do some dirty work now.
But, somebody is going to light the match soon.
Nuke em. just like they will do to us given a chance. we would be doing them a favor buy sending them to paridise like they want. We could use the oil to.
build a cassino for our oil workers call it LAS VEGAS Mid EAST. I know I sound cold but these idiots have been fighting for thousands of years. They will be figting for the next 1000. The US Is stupid to let them even look at us cross eyed.
Yes some thing will happen and they and others will continue to terrorize The USA. we are sitting ducks. communication, road,s major bridges, food supply,water all are completly un protected and easly damaged. The US cant stop trucks full of drugs coming into the country there is no way to stop a dirty bomb as well. this country is 3/4 surounded by water and any one with a boat can get here pretty easly.
It is coming real soon. 1/3 of the people are sitting ready to get it right now. Who is it going to be?
Just get some supplies to last you if you can survive.
Hopefully we won't go to war with Iran..
Hopefully we will kick them hard in the nuts now.. I'd say sometime between November and December. There is a reason Bush isn't releasing the oil reserve now, he's saving it in case the straight of Hormuz (sp?) is blocked. If Obama is elected, and he spends 4 years "talking" to them, they will have nuke weapons.....
Obama elected - Bush will bomb them
McCain elected - Bush may back off and let McCain deal with it..
Either way, someone is going to deal with it pretty soon.
