What might the price tag be if Iran isn’t stopped?

10 Giants bombs that we have already paid for plus NO nation building = already paid for. Who runs these numbers?

$3 Trillion? Gosh, that sure is a lot of money we really don't have.

How about a few well-placed neutron bombs that are already paid for? Then exploit the oil fields for both Israel and us.

We don’t need their oil, wipe them off the earth with the nuclear bombs that we have in abundance!

Any study by the leftist Federation of American Scientists is automatically suspect. This one smells.

No real mention of the US just taking out Iran’s oil fields/pumping capacity/natural gas lines. That would cripple the economy without starting a major war.

Also, we would not “invade” Iran because they have a much larger, well armed Army than Saddam did (Just ask my son who fought against the Iraqi irregulars while witnessing what the 3rd ID did to the Republican Guard divisions.) No use risking ground troops when you can fight from the air and sea at much less a risk.

With US oil production reaching potentially all time levels, any oil loss from Iran could be made up from our own supplies. Now you know why Obama doesn’t want the Keystone pipeline built. It is our secret weapon in any “oil wars”.

Additionally, our military attacks would be aimed at Command and Control Centers of the Republican Guard, key naval facilities to stop “swarms” before they could be formed, and key anti-ship missile sites and ships.

Would also target some major missile bases.

Grant us air superiority from the beginning plus some very interesting cyber-attacks and EMP warfare.

Trusting any thing from the FAS is like trusting a pedophile to babysit your children.

I remember when Jeremy Stone headed FAS, he being the son of identified Communist Party member/KGB asset I.F. Stone. Go back and see what positions FAS took re the Soviet Union and our weapons programs during the Cold War. They weren’t on our side.

No need to say any more. Their past actions and positions tell us that they are not to be trusted.

The idea that we’re going to invade Iran is just a scare tactic by the Left.

Okay. Now tell us the price tag of not stopping Iran and allowing them to produce nukes?

How much will it cost the world economy when Iran closes the Straits of Hormuz and begins arming her proxies in South Lebanon (Hizbollah), Gaza (HAMAS) and many other Shiite nut case groups? It will only be a matter of time before Iran uses her newly acquired weapons on Israel...

Only cost 2-3 trillion because we’ll feel obligated to rebuild it afterwards.

Bring back the punative military expiditions. Throw away the Powel doctrine. Abandon Middle east and pay some attention to South America and lets make some friends there.

Since we no longer know how to fight a war to a decisive victory, why bother?

We would just waste thousands more good men and trillions of dollars we don’t have just to slink back home with little to show for the effort.

I won’t support another war until we reinstate the draft. It’s one of the best ways to rid the country of large numbers of stupid, lazy young men, unlike our all-volunteer military which are mostly good, smart, and honorable.

Strawman argument by the old pro-Soviet disarmament and peace at all costs FAS. No one calls for an invasion of Iran, just areal and naval attacks, if necessary.
