I'll note you mention no specifics.

At what cost? Or do you believe that should be limitless?

Iran leader's call to 'annihilate' Israel sparks fury as nuclear deadline looms - CNN.com

What I read here is: "It says the "proper way of eliminating Israel" is for "all the original people of Palestine including Muslims, Christians and Jews wherever they are, whether inside Palestine, in refugee camps in other countries or just anywhere else, take part in a public and organized referendum."

That hardly sounds like the government of a nation vowing to actively destroy Israel. And even if it was, talk is cheap and hardly reason by itself to commit to war.

The why should the US even be involved? This crap could go on for the next millennium if the people in that region can't learn to live together, I have little belief our young little country is going to solve their centuries old issues.

There's lots of rhetoric that comes from N Korea too, I no more expect that little lunatic to follow through on his rhetoric than I do the Persians, they all know doing so would mean their own elimination.
