question for you and the group..if Iran is indeed close to a producing sufficient fuel for a nuclear device, everyone expects the IAF to repeat Osirik. Sharon has stated that he will never allow Iran to go nuclear, and W. has basically blessed the expected action..So, we have a timin issue..the opposition in Iran grows stronger everyday..what would the effect be of an IAF action.would it help to topple the regime, or "strenghten" it..by allowing it to take harsher measures on the citizens..

In response to your question, I believe an attack by any outside military forces in Iran will likely result in collateral damage (Iranian civilians) and thus cause a significant portion of the general public to rally behind the government. It is a natural response.
The question becomes whether or not our governments feel the people of Iran can overthrow their own regime or not. If the threat is too great and the people too weak, our governments may feel forced to take action.
The better solution is for the world (primarily Europe) to end it's trade with Iran and for the world to support a peaceful regime change in Iran. The people there are calling for a referendum on the type of government they want for the future.
But these people need to see the world standing with them instead of cutting deals with their terror masters.
