Guys you must understand iran wont go around giving its nuclear tech to all islamic states which means its not only arabs but i would really say more like Libya and Syria would get that chance. But know he knows and is now confident because lets just face it, there isnt going to be any attack.

The American Military is setup to stage 2 major war fronts at any given time. I read an article where they don't even consider Iraq/Afghan a major war front, but a Minor front. (don't have a source, but I'll look around briefly)
If they US really wanted to "take down" Iran, they could. I keep reading these arguments about how the US is in a quagmire in Iraq, and that they can't attack anyone else if they deemed necessary. These rumors are false.. all you have to do is do a little research and you'll understand that there is plenty of military/equipment/bombs necassary to take on Iran. Not to mention if they insert a draft, then we essentially multiply our military tenfold. (even with all the border jumpers)
So Iraq/Afghan = 1st front
Iran = 2nd front
Would it be wise to attack Iran? Probably not. The US haven't had a full out war with an able military in a long time. Iraq's military doesnt count.. it was pathetic. Not to mention it'd just open up another "playground" for terrorists to take pot-shots at us for as long as they deem necassary.
Regardless.. I'm afraid we're going to find out soon.. This is exactly what the administration was hoping for. They laid out the propaganda for us all to swallow over the past 6 months.. I believe they were just waiting for Iran to place the straw that breaks the camels back so they don't get a ton of flack.
But if you ask me.. I don't think the US will lead this attack. There are plenty of able countries out there that will/may drop the first bombs.
