Regime Change in Iran the Real Answer

Well, I see our choices as follows: 1. Meddle so that we encourage regime change in the hopes of the outcome Chavez predicts. 2. A decisive military strike that will restore our deterence and fear with the mullahs, or 3. Do nothing, like you and Ron Paul would like, until one or more of our major cities are a pile of radioactive rubble. Then, if we still have the ability, we can try to strike back with our nukes. So, I guess you prefer nuclear war to "meddling" or a limited military strike, MoreFreedom.

A nuclear attack by Iran is a suicide mission for 70,000,000. If the US is ever nuked, I can guarantee you that all hostile nuke-armed countries are going to get a retaliatory strike. Bet on it. Iran, N. Korea... Boom.

Iran's government may be insane, but they're not stupid.

Not civilians. WE aren't prepared. And when I say "we" I mean "you", because "I" am prepared.

The possibility that Iran, which doesn't even have nuclear capacity, will somehow attempt an EMP attack with it's new bomb is absurd. The US upgraded it's technologies to account for EMP's after learning about this possibility in the 60's and it is a difficult task for nuclear proficient states. Iran has no potential to accomplish this. This is Gingrich drivel.

that is the Ostrich "defense"; just ignore everything.

Iran's first use of a nuclear bomb may not be over Israel,but the US,an EMP attack.An EMP attack on the US would set us back to 19th century living conditions we are NOT prepared for,and many millions would die from starvation and disease in the first year. It could mean the end of the US. Iran has been testing SCUD launches from containerships,with HIGH altitude detonations characteristic of an EMP attack,and not usable for attacks with conventional warheads . This type of attack is not needed for Israel,Iran's IRBMs already can reach Israel. But with the US crippled or destroyed,Iran is free to do as they please,without any other Western nation able or willing to interfere.

Where's 4? Remain neutral and allow the inhabitants of this region to fight out their battles. No "nuked American city", since they are embroiled in battle in the Middle East.
The final debate between President Obama and Gov. Romney won't likely change the course of the election with barely more than a week to go, but one sticking point in the debate -- U.S. policy toward Iran -- could well change hopes for peace in the world.

Although the president touted economic sanctions against Iran as the best way to stop the rogue nation from its quest for nuclear weapons, he has, from the onset of his 2008 campaign, put great faith in his own power to negotiate a solution with the mullahs. In 2008, he famously said that he...
