Don’t think so— especially considering we have ICBMs

We only have 450 ICBMs left on Alert. Iran is not a strategic target and the cost of an ICBM launch and the resultant destruction of the Launcher is too costly to our deterrent force.

The use of tactical weapon/s is called for in this scenario.

If there were (which I doubt), discussing it in public is a bad idea.

The only way that this could be true is if obama were giving the nukes to the imams.

Actually, given that both Russia and China would react strongly against an ICBM launch, I suspect were we to launch a strike against Iran, it would be done with bombers (and cruise missiles). Of course, Diego Garcia would be the obvious base, since the fact that Iran is the target would be clear, as the planes would reach their target without even skirting Russian or Chinese airspace.

Wouldn't it make more sense to fly from Diego Garcia? They'd probably make it w/o refueling.

The only way this makes sense is if Obama is planning to land the B-52s in Tehran and give the nukes to Iran to “level the playing field” against Israel.
