Political analysts believe that Americans are much frightened of being defeated in another war and its consequent loss of prestige, and thus, they try to win Iran's nuclear case through ways other than war.
Speaking to FNA, political expert Mohammad Reza Rahim Nezhad stated that the United States does not view military measures as the best or the only option for wining Iran's nuclear case.
He added that Americans hope to do so through ways other than war.
The university professor stressed that Americans are much afraid of being defeated in a war which can cost their prestige, adding, "therefore, they may not resort to military option so far as they are not assured of a guaranteed victory."
Reminding that the United States has sustained billions of Dollars of costs and hundreds of casualties to remain in Iraq, he stressed, "such influential and determining parameters make Bush refrain from any kind of withdrawal from Iraq and, meantime, stick to the issue of Iran and refrain from removing pressures from the Islamic Republic."
"As a matter of fact, no matter US president is a democrat or republican, he can not remove pressures from Iran or withdraw from Iraq after such an astonishingly heavy price that his country has paid," he stated.
Originally posted by TrueAmerican a full scale war or invasion of Iran is not what at issue here. If anything, limited strikes to curtail Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions are at issue, which is why this article IMO is useless, inflamatory rhetoric.

an air-strike will lead to war and possibly means invasion which russia and china have said many times over, they simply wont allow it. seriously, i dont want to be offensive and be an a** but an air-strike on iran will mean no more iraq democracy nor afghanistan.

Those shoulder fired pre historic Vietnam era weapons are a joke. You have no idea what will come flying into Iran when the time comes. The sad part is you most likely wont even see what is attacking you until it is too late. You would have just as much luck with a fly swatter or a good rusty pocket knife. All I can say is good luck with that. Say hi to Bob for me.
