Militarily, technologically and economically the combined might of the United States and it's freedom loving, democracy defending allies are an invincible force that no foe or group of foes on Earth could withstand.

And don't even bother to preach to me about Russia and China potentially working together at some future point to defeat us either, see the preceeding paragraph above.

Going further, say hypothetically that America were to go it alone against Iran without help from friends, it could still simultaneously trample over multiple middle eastern nations at once if it felt the need to do so. Iran and any sympathetic neighbors it could recruit to it's side wouldn't have a snowball's chance in Hell. America may suffer casualties but the other side will suffer annihilation if it comes down to all out war.

You people talk so much about the "disaster" it would be for America if it decides to engage Iran militarily. You are completely out of touch with reality if you honestly think so. Are you really so incapable of adequately assessing the history of world events over the past 200+ years???

WoW!! Spoken like a true sociopath! America has been displaying sociopath characteristics for the last 200 years ... acting with blatant disregard and respect for others' positions and feelings. Best of luck to you if you truly believe the crap that you are spewing. That is the pervasive attitude that will be the demise of the US if left unchecked.
Obviously your observation of history has not shown you that military, empirical nations have a shelf life. Currently, the US has passed it's "best before" date. I wish you well in your endevours. But don't say we didn't tell you so, though.

So what if we can. Does that mean we should?

Let Iran stew in its own juices.

We have our own problems back home. Let's stop being hypocrites and take care of ourselves first.

No country in the world is going to have respect for America anymore if we constantly try and supply the world with answers to questions nobody is asking. If our economic and political models are so righteous, then one day people will take notice and adopt them for their own sake.

Democracy cannot be spread with bombs and bullets. This only leads to animosity and resentment.

Lead by example.

We could roll right over Iran with a few Brigades worth of the troops we have in Iraq, plus the air power already in the region. But as in Iraq, what good would it do.

I think we should covertly try to spark revolution from inside the country. It may be in the works, but those things take time and need to build momentum, and take advantage of critical tipping points.
