You ignore the fact that Iran is geographically as well as numerically huge compared to Israel. If Iran lost 7,000,000 people the population would still be almost the same size, if Israel lost 7,000,000 people it would be empty. Furthermore, Iran is governed by lunatics who are perfectly prepared to sacrifice themselves as well as their people in order to destroy Israel.

Corbett, it says much about you that you think Iran is not governed by lunatics. Do you remember when Ajad spoke at Columbia Univ.? Even the NYC Libs were aghast at Ajad's insanity.

"...sacrifice themselves as well as their people..."

What sacrifice? Islamic theology prescribes that those killed will go to Paradise.
That's usually desirable; hardly a "sacrifice".
If you want to understand the intensifying showdown between the United States and Iran, consider the headline in The Washington Post on the threat of rapid nuclear proliferation: "Many Nations Ready to Break into Nuclear Club."

It highlights one of the dangers cited by those who favor military action against Iran. President Barack Obama says that if Iran gets the bomb, "other players in the region would feel it necessary to get their own nuclear weapons. So now you have the prospect of a nuclear arms race in the most volatile region in the world."

A plausible threat? It may sound that way....
