Iran’s leadership has to go. As for Syria, it would make a nice adjacent lot for Jordan to administer.

Carter was such a soothsayer... the guy is responsible for the whole of the Islamic global jihad, and each time YOU go through a checkpoint at the airport folks, just remember that Jimma the peanut brain is responsible for bringing them to your nation.

It's a puzzle why we, the USA, haven't destroyed Irans' Nuclear and Conventional Weapons by massive bombardment yet. We've known their intentions for over a year, watched them continue their march towards their stated goals, and haven't acted.

In the meantime, Iran has grown stronger militarily, and the 'fifth-column' of muzzies inside the USA has grown stronger. We've even got muzzies in congress!

It is as if our so-called leadership is waiting for another 9/11-type attack before we act, so-as to be sure 'world-opinion' will be on our side.

'World-Opinion' will never be on our side until the UN is destroyed. I'm beginning to think Bush is owned by the Saudis ................... FRegards

Also an attack on Iraq would be a useful Iranian distraction to divert the West in the event Iran and Syria plan to sponsor another war against Israel

Good thinking. If Syria and Iran can tie up the US enough in Iraq and Afghanistan, The Arab League will feel free to move on Israel. As we have shrunk the already tiny Israel even smaller, they cannot take a first strike and survive. So the only option if the Arabs begin to move is for Israel to pull "The Samson Option" a nuclear first strike against the Arab League capitols.

One day soon Israel will have to decide if having six million Jews in the world is more important than having a few hundred million terrorists. May they have to courage to push that button for all our sakes, we don't...

It’s predicated on absolutely acting when we are acted upon. Once it was clear that we weren’t going to RESPOND TO THE AMERICAN LEFT, it was only a matter of time until the other chips began to fall.

Iran should be bombed back to the 7th century, putting all Iranians on foot and in the dark. And not just the Nuclear sites, we should destroy Iran’s entire Energy industry, a “true strategic bombing”. Every pipeline, tank farm, power plant, refinery, and tanker truck and rail car should be destroyed. With 30% unemployment, 30% of those with jobs working for the Government, terrible inflation, riots/demonstrations already common, and now with everyone including the Government on foot and in the dark, large sections of Iran would be in revolt in short order. Without communications and transportation, the Government would be helpless to prevent the spread of Revolution.

Where do we build the internment camps here in the US? Iranian Americans and sympathizers here would go postal on us here on our soil.

Well....American forces can defend themselfve, British forces need a lawyer's permission, an invasion of Iranian NG is just the thing our joint ops with Iraqi army and police forces were for....

And if President Maliki asks for some help in stopping an Iranian invasion, those carriers won't just be sittin' offshore. The "Iranian navy" won't stand a chance of rescuing the mad mullahs.

It seems the "Bush Doctrine" was nothing more than a bunch of talk. Increasingly, the nations that support and harbor terrorists are finding this out.

No - The reality is we will fight differing enemies at the times and places of our choosing....not theirs...

Even if this is BS, there has been lots of evidence of Iranian involvement against us in Iraq, and we have done nothing to directly hit back(correct me if I'm wrong). Right now it seems that we are just playing referee in an ethnic conflict that is being escalated by Iran and Syria, while trying to finish a nation building project. We are hoping, and doing what we can to make them stay quiet long enough so we can declare victory and get the hell out of there. Unfortunately, our enemies in Iran and Syria aren't playing along

Iran has provided weapons to our enemies (but so has the Russian, Chinese, French, to only name a few)...we can't simply go to war with everyone....

Preparing to hit back is a crucial phase....it does not happen in the open and great risks are taken. That the public isn't hearing about such Ops....doesn't mean they aren't happening..

We are not playing referee in an ethnic conflict. We are at war with an AQ element (and mimics) whom are doing all they can to cause chaos and a quasi civil war if possible. They have not achieved the latter....in fact more Sunni and Shia are on our side today then anytime in the past 3 years...

We are not going to "get the hell out of there". We will be there for a decade or more (just like Europe, Japan, SK) Iraq is the heart of the ME. It is essential to dragging the entire ME out of the dark ages. Doing such is an extremely difficult process but after 9-11 there was no other option. The ME must come out of the dark ages...the process for such had to begin. The world is simply too small and easily too dangerous to allow otherwise.

This process will be two steps forward, one step backward.

We are winning. There is no "playing" here. Reality is since Sept 11th, 2001 our enemies have suffered one strategic defeat after another....we have not suffered one. Hell, you would be hard pressed to find even a handful of tactical engagement our enemies could claim as successful.

The one aspect of this WOT we are losing...is the information battle. The PR side. Without question. Our MSM clearly has an agenda (along with our enemies) and the WH/RNC have not come up with a counter to such....(A WOT supporting 527 would be a great start...fully resourced)

I would imagine the US has burned some targets either from or in Iran as part of this silent war. We wouldn’t publicize it.

I don’t believe for a second the various provocations being attributed to Iran are not being responded to, at least some of the time. I wouldn’t be surprised if the US has taken out entire training camps near the border area inside Iran, among other things. This would be pretty normal for the US.
