What kind of fantasy world are you living in edsinger?
Not one at all, but we can make life for Iran a misery very qucily WITHOUT taking it by force (again we dont need it)!
"concept of military strategy?" Well think of that old bastard Mc Arther and how he approched heaily armed Islands....
If you are so damn bright explain to me how the big bad Iranians can resist? Can they gain air superiority? Naval? can they march their M-60's
against M-1's. The only thing they can do is cut off some of the flow of oil through the Persian Gulf. Dean said we couldn't and he was talking out
of his ass in saying so.
Don't tell me about strategy, your sit on you hands and DO NOTHING has been proven time and time again down through history as NOT WORKING. So put on
your Chamberlain shirt and go hug a tree!
Don't give me that nonsense!
Of course we can make life a misery for Iran but that accomplishes nothing!
I'm sorry maybe I'm just being thick but what exactly are you suggesting?
It sounds to me like your suggesting we can just bomb Iran and all our troubles will go away which is ridiculous!
Even if we were to bomb Iran they would still be every bit as belligerent as before in fact they would be more so because you would have unified the
Iranian people behind their corrupt regime!
So what would your "Grand Military Strategy" have accomplished then?
Other then turn the rhetorical hatred the Iranians have for America into an actual palpatable force. You think they're against us now? Wait until we
bomb the crap out of them and leave them to stew in their own juices.
In fact I find it shocking that a rabid rightwinger such as your self would put forth such a strategy. It sounds awfully reminiscent of "Clintons
Cruise Missile Campaign" against Osama Bin Laden and his perpetual bombing runs against Iraq you rightwingers are so fond of putting down as
"ineffectual". Now all of a sudden these tactics are effective? Now that you think of it it's the greatest military advance since the
If Saddam Hussein can still be threatening enough to warrant invasion because Clinton's policy of containment wasnt sufficient what makes you think
Iran will be any different? Especially when you consider that fact that Iran is more advanced right now then Iraq ever was. If this precision bombing
campaign was inneffective at stopping the pursuit of nuclear technology in a flat desert country where there is no place to hide what makes you think
it will work in a country with mountanous terrain?
Stop being a hypocrite and see the folly of what you are suggesting.
Stop hiding behind your "tough Guy "conservative mask and see what the rest of the world sees.
