**Also, why am I asking this board?**
Because you know that that there are learned intellectuals on this board and you value their opinion. So here's my opinion to your first question: bad.
It would be bad for the US, bad for Israel, and devastating for Iran.
If Iran gets a nuke, it would be much worse though.
"If Iran gets a nuke, it would be much worse though."
It's only devastating if they use it. And they know this, so why would they?
They'll be just another crackpot nation with a crazy powerful weapon that they'll never use.
I'm not interested in "containing" any other countries. Russia tried that and it bankrupted them and we're quickly heading down the same path.
But you do have an excellent point regarding their state sponsored terrorist activities and our ability to retaliate.
It depends on what you want to accomplish.
Just saying something would be bad or good isn't always possible.
I can't necessarily say it would be bad. It certainly would be tough though.
There is a level of knowledge that the common citizen is not privy to. I believe Iran would be a pitched battle, moreso than Iraq. We certainly would win the major battles, but the guerilla war afterwards would be rough. We know a lot more about guerilla warefare in the middle east now.
Bottom line is we would win, but pay a price. We had better accomplish what we need to.
for you, it will be very bad assuming you aren't in one of these fields:
mediabanking (we're talking global banking, not mom and pop mississippi corner bank)defense contracting
IMO obama wants an israeli attack JUST this side of the election
Another stupid opinion. Keep em coming, I need the laughs.
>>>Anything for votes.<<<
I'm impressed, you have FINALLY figured out how politics works. Both sides of the aisle would sell out their mothers if it got them elected.
