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.
