David65...You are correct "one is all Iran needs." It should scare the you know what out of you that a country run by people who think a certain group of people should be wiped out. I think after Jews who do you suppose they will come after?
The General is completely wrong. As a retired Marine who has served in Iraq and in the Gulf region, no Gulf State wants Iran to have that capability. Approximately 89% are Shi'a as well as a majority in Iraq. However the remaining Arab countries are Sunni and they don't want Iran with Nukes. So to say we need diplomacy is what everyone should aspire towards. But we need to back up with strong language the use of military actions if the Iranian Government will not take us seriously. I hate clichés but we must be the one who walks with the big stick, but speak softly. And if words don’t produce the desired outcome we must be willing to act.
I’m not so sure I agree with your assumption that our military is weakened. If you know anything about our Ethos is that we are always ready to defend what is right.I welcome your response…
