    How's all that dialogue going with Iran, Mr. President?

    Iran is about to flip the switch on to their first nuclear reactor and the Hussein hasn't lifted a finger to stop it. Congratulations Mr. President, your spinelessness is netting some real results you can be proud of.

    Should we just thank Obama now for the first Iranian nuclear bomb that goes off?

    Iranian nuclear weapons development is based on hear-and-say rumours.
    Nothing more. Same old shit with Iraq. Iran is acquiring the capability to produce them, if it builds it is another question.

    Independent from that I agree with editec, that further countries will gain that capability and actually produce them. And there is nothing to do about that.

    Iraq had its nuclear facility bombed by Israel before they could do anything with it, thank God.

    The pilots should have bombed their own plant at back-flight.
    In this way, we could've established Middle East as non-nuclear zone -- with moral authority.

    Technology advances, with hi-tech of former decades becoming now reachable by mid-technology countries of today at cheaper production costs.
    You can not compare Iraq bombing with anything of today. Saddam probably only had missiles with shitty CEP (radius in which detonation will happen, where mid-point of circle is target at launch) to be launched as retaliation.

    Thanks to oil-price hikes after Iraq-War by Bush, Iran had enough years of significant income increases. It's policy is regime survival, and for that it has to prepare and arm as deterence. Iran did this by completely neglecting Airforce and Navy.

    It's whole offensive capabilities have been invested on missiles and on equipping militias to fight guerilla style once attacked/invaded.
    Once Iran is attacked, there will be flying missiles all around.

    Still, a classical Airforce is better instrument in delivering bombs.
    Iranian missiles can deliver maximum 2.5 tonnes of explosives while a F-16 can carry 14 tonnes. The carrier of bombs in this case is missile and aircraft. The aircraft flys back to base and re-arms. Metal, electronics of missile are "lost" forever after launch.

    But it is anyway no good strategy to invest in airforce for Iran, as those planes would be shot down by USA without major problems. Intecepting missiles is a complete different story. It is also cost-intensive, just look at missile-cost of Patriot system.

    Unlike the belligerant DPRK, Iran has no weapons program, yet I don't see any posts advocating bombing the DPRK. Apparently, they're even allowed to sink ships but nary a wimper from the arm chair generals about destroying North Korea.

    What right do we have dictating Irans nuclear ambitions? Have they threatened the USA?

    I couldn't care less if they threaten Israel. The jews have had plenty of time to get right with the Arabs. What have they done?...nothing but steal from them and oppress them. Looks to me like it is Israels problem not ours. If Iran threatens the USA I think we can take em.

    Hearsay and rumors? :cuckoo::eusa_liar:

    If you call repeated declarations from Iran on the intent to build a nuclear weapon hearsay and rumor than you are even dumber that most terrorist apologists.

    Sorry. I do not believe you.
    Facts are changed according to political motives.
    See Iraq.
    You live 10.000 KM away. You fixed+faked in Iraq and you're doing also in Iran.
    We also do have our intelligence -- on ground right next to them.

    Iran nuclear programme 'solely civilian' - Turkish PM
    BBC News - Iran nuclear programme 'solely civilian' - Turkish PM

    Same thing we also said in reliance to Saddam threat.

    'Only rumours' that Iran making nuclear weapons: Turkish PM
    France24 - 'Only rumours' that Iran making nuclear weapons: Turkish PM

    So, whom shall I believe? The guys who came up with "INTELLIGENCE" proving mobile WMD laboratories and WMD missiles launchable within 45 minutes, equipped with Nuclear material bought from Nigeria?
    That's you who was saying such things and started a war because of it.
    Same old story, no, thank you.
