Don't get me wrong, GWB isn't bashful.
But the EU or the UN is not going to back any kind of military action at all and Iran is too far away for Israel to strike effectively.
I do disagree about the public backing another war at this time. The Senate and Congress would not authorize it unless we were directly threatened, and it will be years before Iran has ICBMs.
I don't think it is on the President's agenda either, or instead of 160,000 troops in Iraq, we would have 460,000.
Armed conflict with Iran will have to wait until the next President. It will happen eventually though.
They don't need ICBM's to reach Israel or any of their neighbors. They've honed their Shahab 3 an advanced IRBM. Won't those reach their neighbors? How far is Israel from Iran?
Its supreme ruler, Ali Khamenei, and Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani have made statements that cannot be interpreted as other than aggressive. A model of the Shihab-3 missile whose range, coincidentally, is equal to the distance between Iran and Israel was presented in one of Irans military parades as destined for Tel Aviv.
I guess I answered my own question, huh...
Which is the obvious best argument that we will not fight Iran with a conventional war....ie: tanks, planes and infantry.
Any war with Iran, whether by us or Israel, will be "non-conventional", a decapitation strike of immense proportions.
