It would be a disaster regardless of who 'invades' or 'bombs them' or whatever. The mess in Iraq should scream reality. But it does not. Anyone looking into this should look into the capabilities of the Iranians as well as that of our American forces. We can bomb all we want, but that won't quell what's on the ground.
Recent reports in the German media suggest that the United States may be preparing its allies for an imminent military strike against facilities that are part of Iran's suspected clandestine nuclear weapons program.
It's hardly news that US President George Bush refuses to rule out possible military action against Iran if Tehran continues to pursue its controversial nuclear ambitions. But in Germany, speculation is mounting that Washington is preparing to carry out air strikes against suspected Iranian nuclear sites perhaps even as soon as early 2006.
According to Ulfkotte's report, "western security sources" claim that during CIA Director Porter Goss' Dec. 12 visit to Ankara, he asked Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to provide support for a possibile 2006 air strike against Iranian nuclear and military facilities. More specifically, Goss is said to have asked Turkey to provide unfettered exchange of intelligence that could help with a mission. DDP also reported that the governments of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman and Pakistan have been informed in recent weeks of Washington's military plans.

When it comes to the youth of a nation wanting a regime change, I think it's safe to say that can be applied to any nation at this particular moment in history. Especially in the US.
Does that mean Venezuela is going to start bombing military facilities and launch amphibious assaults on Florida?
The people of a nation wanting a change in government is hardly justification for another war, especially when that same thought process could be applied to almost any major nation. If we started liberating people based on their feelings towards their government we should start with ourselves and then worry about others.
