So does it or does it not constitute an act of war? That's all that matters.Originally Posted by Officer of Engineers
So your saying that the United States should risk Iran getting an Atomic bomb because the Iranians might hate us more if we knock out a few reactors? Hell there's just as much chance as them loving us for it!Originally Posted by ZFBoxcar
So taking out that reactor would do two things.
1.) It would remove a real nuclear threat against the United States.
2.) They might hate, they might love us, or they might not give a ****.
Now the same question, are you willing to risk the lives of MILLIONS of people because a few thousand Iranians might get pissed off about it?
Any "Democracy" will come far after Iran has a bomb and could have used it or sold it to the highest Islamo-fascist bidder.Iran's evolution into a democracy will probably not come through war, or even internal revolution. It will probably come through reform. I am hopeful for this because Iran's leadership is either not competent enough to see the danger that allowing any sort of liberal disent poses to them, and some of them actually want democracy (not the Mullahs of course, but they do not control everything in Iran)
