First we aren't gointg to invade Iran, so the GOPers arguing for that are fools. Second, Obama has taken the right course. EU just cut off Iran (a huge purchaser of Iranian oil) and now Obama is getting Africa on board. US Looks To Africa To Help Increase Pressure On Iran | Fox News EU Formally Adopts Iran Oil Embargo As Iranian Lawmakers Ramp Up Hormuz Threats | Fox News Say Iran is DUMB enough to try to close the Straits of Hormuz. That will provide America and Europe all the opportunity to bloody Iran's nose. Might even provide justification for us to take out their nuclear installations. We didn't move the fleet and aircraft carrier into the Gulf for nothing. Iran's economy is already shit and it's built entirely off of oil exports. Couple that with an embarrassing kick in the teeth by failed attempt to close the Hormuz and more and more people will be disenfranchised. The protesters will start to turn out in the streets again and in greater numbers. It will turn into a revolution. Obama will be able to utilize the same strategies in Iran that he used in Libya. Whether you agreed with the Libya operation or not, it was effective. The Obama Administration wanted to take away the Gaddiff's military advantage and allow the Libyan people to overthrow the government - Gaddiff was overthrown quickly and efficiently. It worked to achieve those goals. I might not like that Islamist took over, but in Iran's case Islamist are in charge. Anything is perferrable to them. Iran could be playing into our hands!
