    Bomb Iran

    Although the foreign press has been convinced that the US would soon be bombing Iran the fox news report is the first US source I've seen that claims it will happen perhaps next summer? Apparently the only question is on how extensive a campaign it should be.

    I find it pretty unlikely that we would take action of this sort at the same time the Prez is talking about drawing down ground forces in the region.

    That could create an ugly ugly situation. I have a dirty feeling that WW3 is not far away.

    I read we/our allies will bomb 7000 strategic targets in three days per NewsMax.

    Re: Bomb Iran

    "The Germans voiced concern about the damaging effects any further sanctions on Iran would have on the German economy — and also, according to diplomats from other countries, gave the distinct impression that they would privately welcome, while publicly protesting, an American bombing campaign against Iran's nuclear facilities."

    Wow. If Germany wants this to happen I believe it might take place. I wish we were this proactive in preventing Pakistan and India from procuring nuclear weapons.

    Re: Bomb Iran

    India doesnt scare me near as much as Iran and North Korea. If you think about it, most of the countries with Nukes would use them if necessary but have a small fear of the consequences. Some of these small crazy nations believe in death as Martyrdom. They have nothing to lose so they could care less about killing everyone the world over. I really dont know India's take on that, but I know personally as an american I dont want to die. As Al Queada, they sure as hell have a death wish.

    If Germany wants this to happen, then they need to publicly stand behind the US. We can't have another "go it alone" war.

    The world is a popularity contest. There arent a whole lot who will publicly support us on anything. Oh im sure they would hop on our bandwagon if crap hit the fan and affected them. But being proactive is not their game.

    As a career Air Force officer who has spent nearly 10% of my adult life in the Middle East, I can tell you that this would be very unlikely.

    It might be news to some people, but we probably have some guy, somewhere, crafting a plan to invade Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France. Military planners build plans for all sorts of scenarios. It's what they do. Probably better than having something blow up in our faces, then get together to talk about what we might want to do.

    We still have nukes we just aren't a threat to use them unless it comes to that. One reason why I think these countries would be dumb to ever use theirs because we are probably capable of just blowing their entire country right off the map if we had to.

    I hope we never have to use a nuke though.

    What makes you think Germany didn't have that position with the war in Iraq? I think Germany might like to be there with us, but apparently appeasing their new BFF France is a higher priority with them at this moment. And don't get me started on France. What was the last war they were proactively in (that wasn't as a result of Napoleon Bonaparte)? The French-Indian War? They got pulled into both World Wars, and if it weren't for the rest of the Allies they'd cease to exist in both cases. Sure, they helped during the Revolutionary War, but it was because they hated Britain and we'd pretty much won the war by that point.

    As far as Pakistan and India, they got their nukes the same way the US and the Soviets did - dick measurement.

    Because Shroeder was in charge then and not Merkel.

    Iran Options
    1) Do nothing
    2) Diplomatic Negotiations - Hasn't worked to date
    3) UN Security Council resolution imposing economic sanctions
    Russia and China are unlikely to sign on
    4) Subvert the clerical regime
    5) Air Strikes

    Re: Bomb Iran

    There are so many idiots out there, it is unbelievable.

    There is no way that we will bomb Iran. Our foreign policy is screwed up right now. If someone else were to take the iniative, we would jump in, but that isn't going to happen.

    With that said, when Ahmadinejad says that he wants to kill Isreali's and Americans we should take him at his word.
