We have technology that can wipe out every single one of the Iranian leaders before Sundown no matter where they are. We should use it and end all this brinkmanship.


Romans tried this back in their day, blowback is too big a risk. I still want to know why the US is still in the Middle East ? also how come all my States resources are being taken by Woodside, Chevron, APache, Alcoa and Newmont just to name the big ones. 100's of billions of dollars a year are taken and no tax except small payroll tax and small royalties are paid - nothing.

Sounds like you got a letter to write to your representatives.

No doubt,but taking out crazies will just put crazier leaders in control.
we would have to take them ALL out
MOAB STYLE


Nah, dogs get hand shy when they have the s**t beat out of them after a while.

I'm not in favor of war, mainly because it is inevitable that innocent bystanders just trying to go about their lives are killed.

There comes a point, though, when enough is enough. Religious zealots can never be allowed to have nukes. They are irrational, and the risks far outweigh the cost to prohibit that occuring.

If the leaders in places like Iran and NK cared at all about the welfare of their own ppl, they could become instantly economically sucessful, and make huge leaps in the standard of living of everyone there.

Lets not forget these are 52 sites that will no longer exist shortly…..whatever is at these sites will no longer exist.....America has proven to be surgical and selective.....and not screwing around.

Anyone who tests Americas/Trumps resolve deserves to be given due an thorough attention.

I live in NA and do not wish to learn Chinese in my lifetime.

I have witnessed the flaring off of vegetation in select tactically sympathetic areas....Fort.MacMurray Canada.California,USA,Australias major cities...…….in addition to a lot more peripheral moves being made aggressively and globally.IMHO China is in nearly final stages of pre-positioning.

152 targets of interest is a better number IMHO.....use up the junk Ammo first...save the good stuff....everybody counts rounds nowadays so your inventory has to remain fluidic and hard to read....even an increase in Overtime hours at prvate Contractors who produce ammo is noted by someone somewhere somehow.

I would agree if we were dealing with Normal but we are not.

Any guesses on how he would do the hard and fast action ?

My guess would be alot of BGM-109 Tomahawk sea to land, and some AGM-158 JASSM air to land.
Andddd many Predator dones

Americas so tough then why can’t it beat the little old Taliban in Afghanistan.

We're obviously in an undeclared war.

Trump makes a deal with the neocons to save his presidency.

Just a couple weeks ago Trump supporters loved that he wanted to pull out of the middle east and stop creating endless wars.

There goes the economy.

Not exactly very sporting all the same.

Then again neither is the invasion of embassies or the murder of civilians.

None of us will ever take down the Iranian regime without boots on the ground.

And that's not going to be the same war as Gulf War 1/2, just down to the terrain, and the guerrilla tactics that will ensure.

Hell of a way to start out a new decade, and as to hearts and minds, well you can forget about them in the Middle East anytime soon.

This is sheer madness that can only end badly.

Then there is the cost to consider, our respective military-industrial complexes must have the flag out the window!

How is he wrong? We have been fighting in Iraq droning, striking and killing, maiming innocent's in Iraq since Bush sr. 1990. We have been fighting in Afghanistan since bush jr. 2001. All that has done has created more animosity and hatred towards Americans and the Western world.

When has our fighting, meddling and regime change ever had a positive effect in the middle east?

Who gave them their weapons again and enabled the Taliban's rise to power?

America didn't learn from the Russians.....have you forgotten how many years Russia spent trying to take Afghanistan?

Talking big, lots of bravado is the way it goes in that part of the world. It does not necessarily mean it is all coming to fruition.

Trump is a big talker the same way. Does not mean it will all happen but it's par for the course. So what?

IMHO it is still better than sending cash (still have not figured that one out, extortion of some sort?) and perpetually placating the weakest links in the American public with weasel words and lies.

At what point are we going to show those in Iran who want to go a different way the US is aware of them? Maybe this is something they needed to ratchet things up a bit. IDK.
