    Everything from fox and cnn leading up to the iraq war turned out to be bs, I don't know why I should trust either source now. Dobbs excluded.

    I dont care if the whole world had nukes. We do NOT need to be going to war with anyone.

    If anyone were to use nukes to attack any country (be it the US doing the attacking or another country doing the attacking) they would get instant retaliation from every country in the world, maybe not military retaliation but sanctions and the like.

    Pre-emptive war is the dumbest thing in history and ultimately results in the pre-emptor going down in defeat. War is a waste of resources and will destroy the warring country faster than any kind of military conflict.

    The end of this adminstration just can't come soon enough for me.

    I feel the same, but who can guarantee that the next administration will be any better? Bush and his buddies have gotten away with so much shit... they've set a precedent for whoever succeeds them. Things won't change if people don't get outraged, if they don't take action.

    BTW, "destroyal" is not a word! Did you mean destruction? Please correct the title.

    While the motivation for the attack may be wrapped in a silver lined "think of the terrorist" propaganda machine, we're really aiming to stop Iran from unbalancing the region. As soon as a country has a nuclear weapon, they dictate what happens in the area because they jump several spots in the global pecking order. Look at what happened when China got the bomb, Russia and the US' influence was curtailed in Eastern and Southeastern Asia.

    The Bush Administration and most worldwide leaders are anticipating a large power shift in the Middle East once Iran gets nuclear weapons, the existence of the state of Israel is jeopardized and with an unstable Iraq and a nuclear Iran the price of oil is fully under Iranian and OPEC dictate. (Remember Venezuela, their President isn't a big fan of good ol' America atm.)

    This is true, but securing a free Panama isn't going to bring the second coming of Christ!

    We should spend the invasion money on renewable energy and then 1) Iran and the Middle East in general would mean nothing to us, nukes or not, and 2) the world may not hate us so much. If you think about it energy is about the only resource worth fighting for that we don't have plenty of.

    If it goes to an apocalyptic nuclear war, then the Christians are the real winners! And really, what more could we want?

    Hooray!

    Uh, you know the US military has plans for everything, right? There was actually a plan earlier in the 20th century to deal with Canada if they were to turn offensive.

    Don't read so much into it.

    Israel disagrees.

    edit: In fact, the six day war proves that pre-emptive war can prevent civilian losses and win a war.

    You all know I'm a hardcore liberal against such wars, but from a current foreign policy standpoint this makes perfect sense. Iran is a threat to America (albeit a small one with no realistic possibilities) and thus we have to project an image of power towards them. If we make public such a plan, they hear it and it will have an effect on their future actions, in our favor.

    In their same position I'd do the same thing.

    Then again, I'd have never put us in this position to begin with... another story.

    Extreemly accurate.

    The thing that adds credence to the plans, is the administrations refusal to bring down the numbers of troops already situated just acrost the border in Iraq. The logistics are already in place.

    Good lord. If everyone thought their posts through like you then I wouldn't turn a little retarded every time I read stuff on the internet. Keep up the good work!

    While technically that was a pre-emptive strike, I'd hardly call it one since before it began other action had been taken by Egypt and other Arab states previously (with Israeli casualties) and with no question as to who was doing the instigating.

    Exactly how would it be in our favor to publicly threaten another country?

    This is why the rest of the world hates America. Were always projecting our power. Why ? These people are fanatical puffing up our chests acting all bad will only serve to agitate them. I generally think they just want to be left alone in there deserts. So leave them alone.

    Clearly the idea is to make sure they don't attack us or our interests for fear of the repercussions. If someone said they could destroy my entire country in 3 days, I'd think twice before starting a fight with them.

    A Møøse once bit my sister ...

    No realli! She was Karving her initials on the møøse
    with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given
    her by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and
    star of many Norwegian møvies: "The Høt Hands of an Oslo
