    Some wars need to be fought

    If we would have not got into the Revolutionary war... ....would that have worked well?

    If we would have stayed out of World War II...........would that have worked well?

    According to the liberals leader Obama, the war with Iraq was a war of choice and it worked well getting rid of Saddam.

    So, when Obama says we don't want to meddle in with Iran, tells us that the liberals don't really understand that some wars need to be fought. Their analogy is that don't confront that mad-man because we don't want to make them mad at us.

    It's a tad more complicated than that.

    do you truly believe that we, the USA alone, should send our men and women to die in droves... in a war with a heavily armed, militaristic iran, because of all of this going on in their country with their election?

    what are you, empirialistic and cold as ice at the same time? No one in our military should be forced to fight and die in a war that has nothing to do with our own imminent danger or safety imo!

    THE rebellion WITHIN this country, IS the BEGINNING of well needed change, that THEY WANT....the beginnings of a revolution....that will some day, play out.

    And therein lies the key: what they want.

    It may surprise many Americans but most Iranians actually want their Islamic Republic - they just want a loosening of restrictions and fair elections.

    Have fun reinstating the draft, raise taxes to the brim, incur an extra few trillion dollars of debt, and sending 2 million Americans into the hills of Iran... IN THE MIDDLE OF RECESSION.

    There is no reason for us to go to war with Iran. Let them work out their own problems.

    We need not fight a war with Iran, Iran can be contained with the every country that supplies Iran with components for its ambitions comming to the table and sending a coherent message. When you have nations like Russia, China, N. Korea, and many others that do business with Iran and look the other way in exchange for hard cash and then block efforts to sanction Iran for its activities thats the real issue. The Iranian people are for the most part young, well educated, and western friendly, but they wish to choose their own form of Govt. and it would not serve the United States well to enter into any combat with Iran all because of the mouth that runs the nation. Our best approach would be to support FULLY the people that wish to choose their own leaders and at the same time condemn those would supply the materials to make weapons they supply the world over to terrorist groups. As for the comment of spending during a time of war and costing trillions, we don't need a war for that, we have TARP, the bailout, and healthcare which is going to take care of that anyway.
