    I don't have my finger on the nuke button cause they would all be glowing in the sultry moonlight. I really believe a good dose of 500 and 1000 pounders for about three evenings next week would fix the problem.

    I think Iran would take more than that, but I agree that the PM Gorilla is calling the shots right now and Bush better start taking control of the situation.

    Don't you think Israel can handle the situation?

    Israel may have its own problems with Iran, but WE have had a problem with Iran since 1979.

    Iran, under its current leadership, is a threat to WORLD peace, not just Israel's existence. Look at what a moron like Kim Jong-il can do with the threat of nukes. You think those religious whackos in Iran won't be worse?

    We need to hit them ... hit them hard and hit them NOW while the advantage is still ours.

    Rumor has it that it is ripe for internal revolution. There are awlays behind the scene activities taking place. We may be able to neutralize Iran without destrying it. Wouldnt' that be preferrable ? Israel can handle Hamas and Hezbollah and has not asked for any further intervention from America so far.

    When the chips are down, does anyone really believe Russia and China will be our allies?

    Not I. I think they are loving watching the US blowing money.

    I say that we should take the hands off position. This isn't our war yet. The Israelis have shown time and time again that they are big boys. They even came back during the Yom Kippor War. If Israel takes care of Hizbollah, possibly throws Syria out of Lebanon, and either destroys Iran's nuclear program or at least bloodies their nose, then we get all our objectives accomplished without having to spend a dime. Just let Israel do their work. Urge them to show restraint and protect civilians publicly, and guarantee US support privately. That way we get all the benefits of the conflict no cost to us and without any damage to our relations with moderate Arab countries such as Jordon and the UAE. Then we broker a peace treaty and come out looking great.

    I just wonder what the world will be like with jews controlling the oil. I think we should get involved so we have more influence when it comes time to divvy up the spoils.
