Friend, there's no such thing as 100% certainty until it's too late. And most of our costs have been oriented toward setting up the infrastructure
in these two countries. Believe me, we won't be rebuilding a cotton-picking thing in Iran.
Right now our military is getting lots of practical war experience, we are gaining thousands of battle tested NCO's, we are getting real-world
feedback on our weapons systems, and we are already in the neighborhood.
I'll be perfectly honest. Our generals, unlike Israeli generals, don't know their trade. Our generals are administrators and logistic specialists
which we could get from Wal-Mart or UPS. Our generals can't lead a battle. They aren't anywhere near a battlefield. All they can do is point. A
military is supposed to be a war machine, which means quick, overwhelming force of arms. No niceties, no such thing as the term "collateral
damage." The military is not a police force, nation builders, ambassadors of goodwill, and certainly not to be tasked with winning hearts and minds.
You want their hearts and minds, you grab 'em by the gonads, and you have everything you need.
If we had performed in a military manner, immediately after the fall of the Iraqi military, we would have disengaged and maneuvered in the distant
desert, ready to strike if necessary.
(Same thing in Iran. Properly outfitted and supported by air, 20,000 men can run amok throughout the large country of Iran, and make the 10,000 of
Zenophone look like amateur hour.)
This roaming army in the distant Iraqi desert would certainly have threatened Syria, and scared the crap out of Iran. For good reason.
No, Israel can do it. Russia won't lift a finger because it will be over before anyone has a 100% proof that Israel is going to do anything.
Besides, any nuclear weapons targeting Iran, properly dispatched, cannot be traced back to any country of origin. After all, it could have been an
in-country nuclear accident! Or Sunni versus Shia, or Moderates versus fundamentalists. You don't have to take them out head on. Sneak around
where no one is looking and take the back of their head out.
Did you notice a while back when a number of nuclear weapons were being transported across the country, and accidentally discovered? Could
un-inventoried weapons be launched from a tramp steamer in the Indian Ocean? And then abandoned? You better believe it. Who fired these nukes?
Take your pick. But as you seem to determine is the defining criteria, no one could prove this with 100% certainty.
Besides, if there is truth in the Old and New Testaments, then Israel is here to stay. No matter what enemies array themselves against them, no
matter how powerful. I know I'll get crap over that, but it's as plain spoken as day.
