    I don't see what the hold up is, we need to start targeting Iran if we ever want this war to be over. They are the cause of the majority of our problems in this war. If we launch a couple massive air strikes against them it might give them a wake up call. It will show them that we are not putting up with their bullshit anymore. I am sure they would back down really fast.

    You would be wrong, they wouldnt back down fast and the US would lose. We cant even win in Afghanistan!! We are losing horribly in Iraq as well. We are borrowing money to keep the wars up and are spinning out of control.

    There is also another problem, how bout PROVING the allegations first and secondly explain why its ok for the US to interferre in Iraq but not Iraqs neighbor?

    I should add this link, its a long read but I will quote the last paragraph that sums it up.

    http://www.truthout.org/docs_04/110904C.shtml

    That was the conclusion after running the war games scenario.

    I can't wait to see the diplomats try to sit down with al queada and say " Ok guys ---you really need to stop this nonsense. What's is going to take? "

    The war game and advice were about Iran and not Al quada.

    As I said, I think that we can bring many soldiers home now. We need a force bring enough to surround and Isolate Iraq – shield it form Iran. Focus more of our military resources of intelligence and border security.

    Bad, B-A-D Putty Tat Iwanians! :mad:

    Like I said, Seppos have never had the capacity to put themselves in someone else's shoes. You don't find stuff like that in The Wholly Vilebill.

    Thankfully this will all change when their country if finally devasted, like they devastate innocent countries on a regular basis. :)omg: "Call Homeland Security, Chips is really a mad Muslim barmer!")

    Or if Russia invaded Canada in retaliation for Canada invading its Afghan ally? - me.

    (I was going to say Australia, but then I remembered how Clinton left us holding their oily baby in Timor when the shit looked like hitting the fan with Indonesia!)
