    The threat of military strikes on Iran has upturned the quiet and comfortable lives once enjoyed by many Iranians, ushering in a new era of struggle and fear.

    Like many Iranians, Maryam Sofi says the West and Iran are locked in a dangerous game. "I don't think we can know just yet if war will break out, but I am concerned for my family and my country," says university teacher Sofi, 42, a mother of two.

    "I cannot sleep at night, thinking about destruction and bloodshed if Israel and America attack Iran."

    The United States and Israel have not ruled out military action against Iran's nuclear facilities if diplomacy fails to resolve a dispute over a program they suspect is aimed at developing atomic weapons.

    In Washington on Thursday, U.S. President Barack Obama said the United States was considering all options on Iran and would work with allies to prevent Tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

    "No options off the table means I'm considering all options," he said.

    I'm not a warmonger, but in many ways a war with Iran would force the arm chair generals into a serious grip with reality.

    If we attack Iran, we will be the biggest idiots on the planet. We'll be playing straight into Ahmadinejad's hands. All that Ahmadinejad has been doing this whole time is saber rattling. Don't get me wrong, he wants a fight, but he wants to be the one who is justified in the fight. He wants to be able to say he's just defending his country from the aggressors who attacked him first.
