    One is a puppet of the other, the strong man has no desire for negotiations. This though, reflects what is being discussed by the left, granted with tongue firmly embedded in cheek:

    The only solution (now or later) will end up being some sort of discussion... just need to figure how many people need to die and how much time we waste before that happens. Attacking Iran or destroying their nuclear sites probably won't create a climate of "Oh well, let's try solar power..." in Iran.

    I'd rather it be in the signing of a treaty, good time to talk.

    would you (if president) talk directly with Iran? Would you launch a pre-emptive (arguably anyway) strike? Would you obey the laws Iran is accused of breaking first? None of the above?

    I'm not in favor of pre-emptive attacks, quite the contrary. The problem as I see it is that the left ignors all the overtures and attempts at making nice, then when the line is crossed as in Iraq, scream 'unilateral.' Talking has its place, as does action. The bad guys get it, the tinfoils do not.

    Bombing civillians makes terrorists love us! In fact, they need us to be international terrorists/criminals to attract followers... if everybody left well enough alone it would tougher to drum up so much support.

    Gee, I was going to say this sounds like a response to RSR, I see it is.
