I would not advise a full front war. That's all I have to say and will be one of my last warnings.

No we ain't either..but please compare. We could have blown ourselves up multiple times already and did not. We have nuclear weapons for 70! years now. With all due respect, i don't trust "our" governments a lot...but FOR SURE not those "back in the stone age" governments in the middle-east which are 1000x worse.

You seem in a bit of a fantasy here - Iran is much larger than Iraq or Afghanistan, with a much larger population, and a fanatical religious bas that it can rely on and borders with the Caucasus and central asian states
I wouldn't be thinking that what worked in its neighbours will work there - the terrain is rugged, there are multiple resupply routes, the whole population will be hostile and probably willing to fight and die as martyrs - there's little religious schism there, and there isn't a nice road up the river to the capital.......

Behind the scenes Dempsey is quietly leading the ongoing military planning for an attack against Iran's nuclear weapons in the event the president gives the order to do so.
Also there seems to be a lot of military build up in Kuwait. Troops from Iraq. I Hope this does not happen. But nothing surprises me anymore this year.

Not this day and age.
Most people are too aware who causes the wars and why.
If someone does a lottery and says "you can go fight for the bankers" they are going to get shot.

I'm not saying Iran's government is good, but what you are accusing the Iranian government of, the US government has done is a thousand times worst and that's not hyperbole.edit on 21-12-2011 by Vitchilo because: (no reason given)

I see this attitude a lot, especially amongst people from US: do nothing because it's only fear mongering. "They won't do this to us". Well, they are doing it to us big time, over and over again, everything that you never believed it will happen : they are taking your freedoms, your rights, your health, your money, your pride. And people still do nothing. "it's only fear mongering, it's not that bad after all". Whatever. All we have left is our lives. Want to stand aside and watch yourselves loosing that too? Suit yourselves. Too bad that there will be no one around to say afterward :"i've told you so".edit on 21-12-2011 by WhiteHat because: (no reason given)
"they are doing it to US big time over and over again"? Followed by "they are taking your freedoms, your rights, your health, your money, your pride"?

If you stop and think, the US even has "attack plan's" for invading Canada, that tidbit came out during the Dubya Administration. So, yeah, the US has "battle plans" for almost every nation outside our borders.
