    Kaytianne you ask whether we invaded the wrong country which should have been Iran.

    I really don't think Bush made a mistake. Like the old tale, sometimes you have to take baby steps before you can take giant steps forward.

    It seems apparent that Iran, although trying to come out of the 4th century of Muhammad is under the control of the ruling Mullah Clerics. How long these radical old guard can keep the Iranian army under their control is a real question.

    Unlike Iraq, the Iranian (Pershian) younger generation has seen, heard and knows of western civilization and apparently yearns to get out from the yoke of these old morons.

    If Iran were to be attacked by land, sea and air, do you think that this silent majority of non-Arabic young men and women who speak Farsi and not Arabic would fight against any western coaltion put together by Bush?

    The reality is that Iran is not as prepared for war as was Iraq. Iraq, which we have seen was finished off in 21 days flat with continued outsider insurgents keeping the pot stirred with their roadside bombings, foreign and Royal Guard insurgents hiding in Mosques pot shooting and suicide bombers killing and kidnapping as their leverage to end infidel occupation of their holy soil.

    I don't doubt for a minute that Iran will be attacked by some country like Israel, the US or the Arab Emerate States which feel threatened by Iran, the country which is truly the bowels of hell.

    One step at a time....

    Not being privy to all of the intelligence that theses countries have, I have no idea what the reaction of the people would be. I just wonder what the consequences would be for Israel if they attacked Iran. I bet terrorist groups would kill innocent Israelis but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!.

    and the world thought it couldn't be done, responding to Dillo and ajwps in the same post! :banana: Guys you are right. I thought perhaps Israel would take care of Iran, too far and too dangerous. Whether the US does militarily or diplomatically, I'm assuming it will be done.

    Israel would just bomb the nuclear facility and go home to face terrorist retalitation. Someone else would have to clean up the mess.

    I don't think it's going to go this way. If US can handle diplomatically, they will, otherwise, they will take it out!

    I don't think any of us are privy to any of the intelligence gathered and known about Iran and its its internal dynamics. But I do suspect that Israel would not risk a frontal attack of a combined armed IDF service like the US has done twice in Iraq.

    You think terrorist groups would kill innocent Israelis? What do you think that they are trying to do every day in Israel?

    The terrorists are not doing to well right now, they would rather attack soft targets in Spain or Sudan. Israel has the long learned experience how to deal with the terrorists who use their families as shields.

    Israel also has the new sophisticated weapons systems that they have held in reserve for that time when the Arabs armies arrayed against them will make another attempt to conquer and destroy them.

    Iran is just one of many.

    Israel is facing terrorist attacks as we speak. The Arabs in Israel call it retaliation for killing their head murderers.

    Who do you see cleaning up Israel's terrorist (mess as you call it) right now?

    Do you really think that Iran would be in any position to send in terrorists to Israel to retaliate against the destruction of their nuclear and WMD facilities?

    Iran is not on the border of Israel. Israel is destroying the infiltration of arms and men that comes through the tunnels from places like Egypt right now.

    What nation can stand up against the mighty arm of Israel today?
