War with Iran is going to be necessary,
because it is preparing to nuke us,
for the same reasons as 9/11/1
More likely, once Iran gets nukes they will cause a lot of trouble in the region, maybe invading our allies, maybe blocking oil shipments, maybe even attacking our warships. And they will then use their nuclear weapons as a deterrent to prevent us from going to war with them.
In addition to that, there is the fact that if Iran is allowed to develop nukes and get away with it, it will mean the end to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.
Of course, the end to the NPT has some upsides as well, in that the US will be able to resume nuclear testing, develop new nuclear warheads, dramatically increase the size of our arsenal back to Cold War levels, and even share our advanced warhead designs with Israel.
But on the whole, simply bombing Iran into a wasteland before they develop nuclear weapons is the better option.
It'll be a bad time to be in Iran though. If Obama waits until their reactors start operating before bombing them, the meltdowns will be worse than Chernobyl.
During the Chernobyl disaster, there were still operating safety systems, and engineers on site to operate them. But if our bombs have killed all the engineers, and have blasted all the safety systems to shrapnel, there will be nothing to even try to mitigate the meltdowns.
And even if Obama bombs Iran before their reactors begin operating, he'll still have to hit the Uranium Conversion Facility at Isfahan. That'll release many tons of hydrofluoric acid vapor into the atmosphere.
Hydrofluoric acid is much more than just an extremely potent acid (although it is that as well). It is also a deadly poison that is absorbed directly through the skin.
and Obama will not avoid it.
That is anyone 's guess.
U trust him more than I do.
Barack Obama has a good record of using military force.
Note all the drone airstrikes.
Note the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Note also that the supposed pullout from Afghanistan is only pulling out the regular forces. Obama is sending in 20,000 Special Forces to replace them.
As for Syria, we really should do more to supply the people with the arms they need
to defend themselves from their government.
Will we see them turn the weapons that we give them in a spirit of liberty,
, because we r infidels
It might be good to avoid supplying them with Stinger Missiles (although those are more useful against propeller-driven aircraft than they are against jet-powered planes).
Machineguns and bazookas should not be much deadlier than what a normal terrorist could already buy on the black market.
