    Look like our options with Iran are not very attractive. What will end up happening in a few months with this? Are we going to be instituting regime change in Iran?

    sorry, the article has some pot shots at the administration, but it still has vital information on what's going on right now.

    Wish we could read about those war games and their results. If we took out the Iranian nuke sites, I wonder why the war game results indicated that "escalation" was inevitable? What is the Iranian rejoinder? Conventional attacks against US forces in the Gulf or Iraq would be suicidal. It is probable that the negative war game results involved increased direct and sponsored Iranian terror attacks in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the US. Clearly, any US attack on Iranian nuke sites must entail threats to the Iranians of utterly unbearable consequences if they strike back. For example, direct physical threats against Iranian leadership targets and key infrastructure sites.

    those who rule without responsibility or accountabillity have been known to do suicidal and dangerous things (bin laden, the taliban, countless wars in asia and africa, etc etc)

    you rarely see democracies pull crap like this

    though i wonder what the hell the brazilians are doing....
