The National Review ^ | March 20, 2013 | Nathaniel Botwinick

I don’t trust this administration to get the job done.

They’d botch the invasion of Grenada.

Boots on the ground there would be a disaster. Better to decapitate the snake and let the people there try again.

They should have coupled those questions with an inquiry on how many people favor the reinstitution of the military draft.

If Barry and his boys feel the need to pick a fight with Iran, I’d like to suggest that we send every politician, lawyer and judge on Capitol Hill over there for the first year so they can get their “rules of engagement” straight before sending any of America’s sons and daughters over there to be killed because of the dumb@$$ “rules” created by those anti-American buffoons on Capitol Hill.

As long as by ‘military action’ you mean indiscriminate carpet bombing, off-shore artillery strikes, and drone missiles. No need to put a single troop in that hellhole.

We have seen enough young American blood shed in the M.E.

If action is needed bombard and bomb the snot out of them until they stop twitching.

Obama would never support an attack on Iran unless the Muslim Brotherhood thought it was a good idea.

Obama is a MUSLIM IN FULL.

You underestimate the enemy.

Allah is Satan...he will not fall without massive collateral damage (and that means you and me).

One trident missile submarine could destroy the entire Middle East, much less Persia.

They favor the drafting of my son and your son. Theirs? Not so much.

I’m worried about the arguments breaking out among combat troops now that gays and women are involved.

Where did you get THOSE boots? They don’t match your camo pattern! You call that web gear? It’s so last season! Etc.

I have also been on the wrong path...time for you and me to get on the right path.

Best of luck to you and me!;-)

Let's get on the right side of this fight!

The Democrats are worried about Iran having nuclear weapons and are willing to fight over it? I call bulls**t.

If the jobs not going to be done right it shouldn’t be done at all.Besides what the hell has This Administration done right that has enhanced the national security of the United States?Nothing.

every military action they have involved our forces has turned out to be a political and military disaster.

i for one hope we stay out of this mess.Let Israel and the Europeans deal with any attacks on Iran.

This poll is not worth much. How many Americans would support this if it meant any real inconvenience or discomfort to themselves — answer: not many. Most are too busy yapping or texting from their cell phones, twittering and posting personal info on facebook that no one else on the Internet cares about, and watching inane unreal reality programs of very depraved people. God help us if we ever have a real nation state war requiring the draft.

Obama is Sunni raised....Iran is Shiite.

Commander Zero will get a bonus of 72 extra virgins for whacking Shiites.

Too many wars. Know too many good friends harmed by the piddle poor way we fought the last 3 “big-uns”..Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan. We should declare real war. Level the bastards. Shoot the bad ones that survived and leave. This nation building sucks and we suck at it.

If we hadn’t held the Israelis back so long, they could have had it done in a long weekend 10 years ago.
