Poor people. And my guess is there will be mostly American soldiers doing all the dirty work.
Have some sympathy for the Iranians themselves.
For 20 years they've been resisting the yoke of a regime that is universally despised in Iran by any means they can. Every new generation is born with more contempt for it than the last.
Suddenly they find out, the rest of the world can't wait around for them to take action to decide their own fate and instead Israel and the US will do it for them by bombing the living daylights out of them.
All that effort, for nothing. Only to have the International Community sow the seeds for an even more radical regime to rise up in the future that makes the current one look like altar boys.
the US was hit in the World Trade Towers by forces that were training in Afghanistan, and supplied personnel by other Muslim countries, which of course, with their religion of hatred, were able to send fanatics.
But our government is not run by Mullah's, whose history has proven time and again to be less than peaceful, teaching instead an intolerance of non-Muslims.
Anyone who would claim that Islam is a religion of peace is just refusing to acknowledge events.
anytime you have a government led by religious fanatics of any kind, then one can assume the proverbial crap can hit the proverbial fan at any time.
When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”
Surprised by the ease in which this FBI spokesman made such an astonishing statement, I asked, “How this was possible?” Tomb continued, “Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.” I asked, “How does that work?” Tomb continued, “The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice than decides whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, Bin Laden has been formally indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connected Bin Laden to 9/11.”
Some members of the government have even boasted how they would use them: to destroy Israel. "Islam could survive the retaliation," they insist, "but Israel would be gone forever."
Well, just exactly how does Iran intend to cause the "regime" of Israel to cease to exist without destroying the very people who support and defend that regime?
That makes as much sense as saying, "I intend the body no harm, I just want to blow his damn head off."

They bitch about not having sufficient food, enough clean water, no sewer system, and shortages of medical supplies, yet they are able to spend millions on weapons and rockets!
And as far as what happened in Gaza, well, you don't strike others if you don't want to get struck in reply. This isn't that hard of a concept either.
Six months ago Israel asked and received a cease-fire from Hamas. It unilaterally violated it when it blew up a tunnel, while still asking Egypt to get the Islamic group to hold its fire.
I guarantee you, that if my neighbors kept taking pot shots at me and mine, I would guarantee a swift, accurate, response much greater than the one they started.
As a group, the Gazans have to be some of the most stupid in recorded history.
They bitch about not having sufficient food, enough clean water, no sewer system, and shortages of medical supplies,
stupidity in the rest of the world is not recognized as a virtue, and something the Iranians should not continue to emulate.
Yeah, the Israelis did destroy a smuggling tunnel. I hardly call that a ceasefire violation.
instead elect to buy more weapons isn't stupid?
I get millions of dollars from outside nations,
Of course, I'm just a simple country-boy.
And we call them as we see them.

PressTV is international news agency - source as any any other MSM.
If this help your day... Its all over the world:
... Just google the headlines!
So shut the crap about PressTV - they did good work in Gaza, no one accused them in most difficult situation from been one sided... They raise many headlines conserning threatening Iran first - and that is only natural. Usually headlines comes out in other outlets after few hours.
