    Its going to be rather difficult to garner support for a military action against Iran after we invaded Iraq by mistake. We will do the only thing we can do, try to undermine the theocracy by supporting the students, and try to prevent them from buiding nukes. I wouldn't be surprised to see an airstrike against Iran to destroy some research centers. Plus Bush & co wouldn't hestitate to do it for an election boost. Of that I have no doubt. But war with Iran? That's just not possible right now.

    What was left field about it? How are we going to attack Iran? We can barely maintain our force in Iraq and we're virtually drafting former soldiers as is. In fact, how in the world would you explain to some poor grunt in Iraq that he has to turn right and head into Iran now? I'm not far left, you're just so far right, the center looks like Left Field.

    Alright lets try again shall we?


    This statement on its own can be debated rationally.

    Possible, but whoever carries it out better be ready for the response.

    See, you had to throw this assinine statement in here. By injecting your anti Bush crap (as you seem to do a lot) you make yourself look foolish. Hence the snide and sarcastic replies you bring upon yourself


    And what if a year from now Iraq is stabilized fully. Iran now has 140,000 US troops on 1 border and another 20,000 plus on the other side....
