Drop a bomb on Iran and you can bet your ass that that'll change.
Iran can't compete openly (no nukes) and sure don't want to give the US an excuse after what happened to Iraq....so they fund and arm indirect attacks, basic stuff.

I know what we did there with the Shah etc. during the cold war, we aren't blameless and Iran is no saint either.

Can't compete with what?

Our weakness is asymmetrical warfare, and they have enough strength to make bombing them extremely painful for us. We'd cry uncle before they would.

We can't do in Iran what we did in Iraq. Bigger more mountainous country with three times the population.

And every Islamic fanatic around the world would pour into the country.

Stupid idea from a delusional fool. Bombing Iran is a really, really bad idea.

Just wait and see what happens when ISIS decides to Liberate Persia.

Well, look ... you think she is stupid; but, I have said many time right here on this forum (posted on FB too), that it is time we use our nuclear weapons. That is the only way to end this conflict with terrorism, and end it quickly, saving thousands of American lives. That is why we made the decision to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

I am not ashamed to say this, either. What do we have these weapons for if our enemies know we will never use them? They are no longer a deterrent.

Where exactly would you set off nuclear bombs?

Israel needs the smackdown. Iran seems to stay off the warmongers radar. I like Iran better than Zionistaville.
