    The U.S. has at all times enough nukes ready to go to completely eradicate every country in the world that has nukes 5+ times over. If Iran launches a single nuke, their country will cease to exist.

    Do you really think the US would do so, if Israel was irradicated?

    Yes, I think we would nuke Iran. I don't think anyone else would go to bat for Iran either. I think it would be like a scene out of the Breakfast Club... "Two hits: I hit you; you hit the floor."

    Could we afford not to? If one country, unprovoked (and don't even try to tell me that it would be provoked), nukes another country, we have to remind all the other trigger happy madmen out there that just living in the same country as one of these clowns will get you killed.

    Absolutely. Unfortunately youll get the UN mucking everything up. Theyll want to bring IRan in and make them a part of the Security Council to discuss this tragic undertaking. Hell all Sudan had to do to gain access to the Humans Rights committee was commit a genocide. So Iran nuking another country surely will gain them favor with the UN for a Security Council vote.

    An alternative to strictly nuclear weapons (on our side) would be mass quantities of conventional cruise missiles. Think shock and awe times about 1,000, no joke, on Tehran and all the other towel-headed camelmen. Without using nukes, the UN couldnt have a tear-fest on such a macro scale.

    Sure they could. Any Retaliation by Israel or the US is seen as "Unilateral Aggression" in the eyes of the UN. So Cruise Missiles may be kind and gentle compared to nukes, but i think a nuke sends a message to not on the Middle East but Russia and China not to Fuck with America or America's Friends.

    Good point, I suppose a message to China and Russia and NK would be far more effective and worthwhile than worrying about hurting the UN's feelings. If they condemn the US and Israel for responding to a unprovoked (or even provoked, for that matter) nuclear strike with a retaliatory nuclear strike, then I say we abandon the UN at once, and cut off all funding to the nations apart of it. We could use the money saved to restock our nucelar stockpiles.

    Why not just abandon the UN now. They are pretty useless as it stands the way things are. All they do is create more problems in areas where problems exist already. Oil for Food. Former Yugoslavia. All of Africa. the UN is completely useless and in most cases, the biggest criminal organization on the planet.
