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.
Please tell me you are kidding. The worst that can happen if Iran gets nukes is that the balance of power changes in favor of Iran and triggers an arms race. Don't bother bringing up Iran using nuclear weapons on Israel because that is not happening and will never happen. No matter how bad that is for the US it does NOT justify a war let alone the use of a nuclear weapon on Iran.

Problem with Americans is we haven't had a war on our own soil in 150 years... unless you lived in downtown OKC or Lower Manhattan. Seems like the people I hear pushing war or justifying torture were draft dodgers or never in the military either

So Iran wants a bomb. Maybe it's because we deposed their elected leader and forced them to submit to a puppet of ours all because he dared to not give us priority dibs on their oil? I though America loved democracy? In the 1980s we support our home boy Saddam Hussein in a war with Iran that caused 1 million deaths. Recently we've had severe sanctions on things like civilian air plane parts. More Iranians have died in plane crashes directly due to those sanctions than we lost on 9/11. And I doubt anyone killed on those planes was a direct threat to America

Don't forget the Iranian airliner that the US shot out of the skies. No apologies.

Israel is obsessed with Iran. "Conservatives" are obsessed with Iz'rul. Therefore...

Thus liberal thought. Of course you don't understand.
