Apparently there are a few people around who still don't quite comprehend the true strength and might of the United States of America.
We are given a daily update from the streets of Baghdad just how effective the US military is at winning hearts and minds, and defeating an occupied
Wars are only won in the true sense if you have an honest belief worth fighting for.
You lose a war as soon as it begins, when your morals and values are for greed or gain, instead of survival.
Quite frankly, the U.S. if backed by other nations (which it would be) could annihilate Iran and its buddies just as easily as they obliterated
Iraq's entire former government. If you disagree, you're naive and hardly perceptive of actual reality.
Simply bombing someone to Stone Age does not classify as a win.
The reality is, for every bomb you drop, you create another enemy.
You seem to believe if you drop enough bombs you will beat the enemy.
Id say your perception or reality is the one that’s naive.
Militarily, technologically and economically the combined might of the United States and its freedom loving, democracy defending allies are an
invincible force that no foe or group of foes on Earth could withstand.
Id call America a lot of things, but one thing id not call them is democratic, and defenders of allies.
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.
Is that just wishful thinking?
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.
IF you do go it alone, and are insane enough to actually use your 'tactical' / 'bunker-buster' nukes.. You think the world will just sit by and
let you occupy another important global resource?
America was already prepared to wage multiple wars simultaneously when the N. Korea controversy was heating up, do you really think this country
doesn't know it's current and modern capabilities? America knows it's capabilities and it knows it's limitations as well so to the leaders of all
nations, I say underestimate this country at your own peril.
Your right, its very very stupid to under-estimate the stupidity of American leaders.
I believe them to be unbelievably stupid enough to actually believe dropping the nuclear weapon, to convince a nation to NOT BUILD nuclear weapons is
the right choice.
America obviously has no clue about its capabilities, your army's going bust and you still argue Iraq’s for the better good.
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???
No, but your economy is faltering with a $600, billion + bill.. How much more will Iran cost, and how much more can your economy take?
Not much I believe.
200+ years???? You are aware the world has been fighting wars and holding back leaders for centuries prior to the USA's entrance?
I believe once again the world will find a way to limit a crazy and evil empire.
Unfortunately I never saw it being the American empire that the world tries to stop.
Stop hoping so much for the devastation of America because in actuality what you're praying for is the effective annihilation of Planet Earth. Or do
you naively believe that America could dare be brought to it's knees without slamming her enemies face first in the dirt in the process.
WOW that horse must be pretty damn high.
The world lasted for a long time without American capitalism, and it will survive long after its gone.
Yes, when crap happens crap happens, but some crap is just plain unavoidable.
For the greater good?
As for America, well its not as if the world MADE you commit crimes of humanity, we simply got fooled by your lies.
You can damn well believe we won’t get fooled again, and if worse comes to worse im willing to accept a re-made economy after a crash, and a few
other nations calling the shots, if it means America can’t commit these same crimes again.
- Apologies for typo's I was in a rush and will fix up in a minute.
