Obama just cut the military. Now war with Iran is becoming more and more of a possibility.
Why would we? How is Iran OUR problem?
OK what if Bin Ladin was proven to be in Iran?...I know..but what if?
Would we have invaded Iran the same as we invaded Afgahinstan?
Obviously Iran is no more potent than Iraq was cuz they fought to a standstill for HOW LONG?
How many troops did it take to kick the shit outta Iraq?
The problem isn't invading if you people haven't learned a fucking thing about war..it's leaving.
We have more than enough troops and military hardware. The American people are done with short invasions and decades long occupations.
Iran is not a threat to the U S. It is high time the Israelis fight thier own battles again.
It's REALLY thier problem.
Nuclear weapon capability is a serious issue for the entire planet.
We do, what we lack is the fortitude to do it. The Politicians would quit on us right off the bat.
So you SUPPORT the US leaving Israel alone if they nuke Iran? How about if Iran when attacked by Israel retaliates against the US and tries to close the straights. is it our problem then? What if they give a nuke to a terror organization or launch nukes at their neighbors?
Israel is the biggest problem in the Middle East.
Cut our ties and treaties with that rogue nation.
And 90% of our Middle East problems will disappear.
We have the capability to invade and occupy Iran and almost any other county in the world with the exception of China and Russia. But a war with Iran would not be an outright invasion. We may land limited troops in hit and run operations but no outright invasion is in the works.
You misunderstand the concept of 'invasion' Iran like other countries is a soverign nation. By our landing of troops even 'limited trops in hit and run ops' is an invasion and is grounds for retaliation. You are also misguided in your concept of our 'having the capability to invade and occupy Iran and almost any other nation". We have the capability to invade but the concept of 'occupying
is doubtful especially over the long haul (90 days +).
The reductions in our military and the changes in our rules of engagement make that unlikely.
What makes it even more unlikely is that the country is too fractured to have the Will for a major fight. I doubt we would be able to prevent an invasion if Iran decided to come here.
Who is gonna pay for it?
