Evidently Iran plans on green-lighting itself.

If you’re going to take Iran down you need to do it all the way. Should have done it when we had massive forces in Iraq. Yes it will be difficult, etc. Take Iran and Syria out, insist on more moderate governments.

Well call me a cock-eyed optimist, but I see some common ground here and the opportunity for a win-win situation!

An analogy.

A few mosquito's, just some repellent.

Many mosquito's, fog to poison the adults and BT to poison the larvae.

Keep bugging us!

Massive EMP attack and blow up every dam in the country. Let the Ayatollahs spend every waking minute worrying about how to feed 30 million people and they'll have no time for more mischief.

Find every mullah in Iran, hang them from lamp poles all over Tehran and Qom. Level every mosque. Leave. Tell them they do NOT want us to come back -- we won't be in as charitable a mood.

I’ll believe this is credible when I hear it from my contacts in Tehran

The majority of the people in Iran are pro western. These people live in mortal fear of their own government and with good cause they are afraid. However, these same people will stand up and fight (particularly the students) if they have a chance of success.

1. Take out the civilian, theocratic and military leadership with air strikes from cruise missles.
2. Take out tanks and armoured carriers that can be used for crowd suppression and any flying military assets they have.
3. Supply the good guys with weapons.
4. Repeat as necessary.

If that happens the phrase Iranian Glass will take on a whole new meaning.

How does this differ from their preparations to down Western airliners in case there is NO attack on their nuclear program?

Why would they need an air force? Given our nonexistent border security, Iran can carry out it's threat from within our borders.

"Massive EMP attack and blow up every dam in the country."

Considering the leadership and political will of the respective nations, I think it far more likely that we'd receive and EMP attack from Iran long before we'd deliver one to them...

Shhhhh...

Don’t tell anybody, but a high-ranking source within the CIA accidentally let slip the info that they have developed a secret new virus that attacks the organs of men who have, um, relations with goats and sheep. It is clearly designed to “shrink” the threat posed by the Iranian mullahs and their ‘missiles’.

That's what we heard about Iraqis before we sent our troops in. 5000 dead GI's later, we know better, after being evicted by a democratically-elected majority of the Iraqi legislature. Heck, neo-cons were telling us that Arab Spring participants were a pro-American majority who would cast off the anti-American propaganda supposedly being fed to them by the leaders they were toppling. Turns out that it was the Arab Spring masses who have this white-hot hatred for us, and their leaders who were appeasing them with the occasional verbal broadside at Uncle Sam. Still, I don't disagree that we should flatten Iran's nuclear facilities.

You are assuming that they care at all about the well-being of their people.

What on earth are American airliners doing flying over Iranian airspace?

Wait.

Please don't tell me that Iran is planning to shoot them down over American airspace!
If that is the case, I will totally refrain from using any air travel in the foreseeable future.

You see, both official Idi Obama policy, as well as MSM by tacit agreement, that bad news about koranimal behavior be suppressed if it reflects unfavorably on islam. So the safety and welfare of Americans is secondary to kowtowing to sandmaggots. Think about that.

A distinction without a difference.
One is just a subset of the other.
