Iran attacking the United States first=not going to happen.
I think if it did, the Bush Administration would be jumping with joy.
The Bush admin are not war mongers, contrary to popular belief.
They are greedy idiots.
They never planned for nor did they want it.
They went into IRAQ thinking of the money they could make of a poor, weak country.
God behold someone stands up to the USA, the best we can do is put on sanctions.
Iran will deal the USA A serious blow...
They wont beat them conventionally.. but they'd bring them to a stalemate battle.
And the US Will have no choice but to deploy tactical nukes.
Think about it... we have to ship all this stuff from our home state on the other side of the planet...
We have to maintain our economy... our public support..
our treaties and our defense pacts elsewhere.
If we hit IRan.. everthing that country stands for, will be souley against the US machine.
They will have neighboring arab states support also.
Dont fool yourself, The US wont win a war in IRan easily.. if at all.
Plus youve got corporate men running the country. Not savvy intellegent people like in previous decades...
your administration arent ready for the truth that lies in front of them.
and it will be you poor mugs that suffer the ultimate price.. while there figuring it out.
