Remember also that despite the good people in Iran, the Iranian Islamic Government would eliminate every last man and dog in the US at the drop of a hat, so don't feel too guilty or worried about getting in first if that's what happens.
It could well come down to a matter of kill or be killed, but don't forget the enemy is also within.

I actually am an American, a person, who cares - not just playing the part.
A difference in opinion about what media lies stand for has nothing to do with "big girl panties" or "drama queen". Our difference may have to do with feelings but you wouldn't have any idea what those are now would you

Dear people of Iran,
I am an American. I am a man with a family.

If the American population is as against this forcoming invasion as much as this thread indicates then I'll be expecting to see millions protesting outside the whitehouse come the time. If we don't see millions on the streets protesting then as far as I'm concerned the American population are happy enough to let it happen.
Israeli sources are alleging the existence of a secret Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance. The allegation is credible, even obvious to many who understand the close ties that exist between terror-supporting states and the "former" communist bloc. The allegation is also credible to anyone who watches the way Moscow supplies and encourages rogue states like North Korea, Iran and the old Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein. Consider the following tangled web: Recently published Iraqi documents confirm a Saddam-Taliban connection as previously alleged by terrorism expert Yossef Bodansky. Rounding out the overall picture, Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir recently stated that Iran and Russia are jointly supporting the Taliban's resurgence in Afghanistan. In an interview with Paul Williams and David Dastych, Mir affirmed: "a top official of Afghanistan's Interior Ministry revealed to me in Kabul that Russia and Iran are providing weapons and money to the Taliban. But we don't have the courage to speak against them...."
Who will find the courage, indeed, to admit the truth about Russia and Iran? Who has the courage to say what is actually occurring as opposed to the mindless repetition of ideological falsifications? The left uses every occasion to bash Bush and deny the enmity of certain countries. It is America's fault, they say. America is the villain of the piece while Russia is, once again, a "progressive country." Even the right is disunited, as we find Patrick Buchanan declaring for retreat and isolation. Meanwhile the maligned "neo-cons" call for tougher measures, though none are to be aimed at Russia. They warn us about China and Iran and Syria. But Russia is left alone, wrapped in its cocoon of lies. The truth is lost on every side as each contestant struggles to prevail in a political debate that misses the big picture and the big enemy. The partisan bias that afflicts punditry makes any discussion of strategic realities difficult if not impossible. It is a sure path to obscurity for a writer to discuss the emergence of a powerful anti-U.S. bloc of countries led by Russia and China - a bloc that includes Western Hemisphere countries like Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Venezuela and Cuba.
Medvedev is a mere puppet; his master is ex-KGB luminary Vladimir Putin, a thug likely to return to Russia’s presidency and who is widely suspected of being behind the assassination of his London-based critic, author Alexander Litvinenko.
U.S. intelligence has apparently concluded that Moscow was behind last September’s bombing of the U.S. Embassy in the nation of Georgia. But the Obama administration still thinks Russia is our friend.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. In the 1970s, President Carter celebrated America’s liberation from its ”inordinate fear of communism” and boasted after the 1979 Vienna Summit that “President Brezhnev and I developed a better sense of each other as leaders and as men.” Less than six months later, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan.
Today, President Obama takes Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to Ray’s Hell Burgers in Arlington, Va., and touts as his greatest foreign policy achievement an arms control treaty that Russia’s defense minister has publicly said will give Moscow a veto over U.S. anti-missile system deployments.
The KGB-agent-turned writer died after someone slipped radioactive Polonium-210 into his tea.
Litvinenko is a reminder of a Russia that might no longer be controlled by the Communist Party but which remains engaged in what is now a more subtle war with the West, in particular the U.S.
Now the U.S. concludes that Russian military intelligence officer Maj. Yevgeny Borisov was behind the bombings in Georgia last fall that blasted our embassy. Georgia’s reputable legal system has convicted Borisov in absentia for the crime, but he remains safe in breakaway Abkhazia.
Why Is Russia Building 5000 More Nuclear Bomb Shelters In Moscow By The End Of 2012?
Russia certainly seems to be in a hurry to prepare for something. RT is reporting that 5,000 new nuclear bomb shelters will be constructed in the city of Moscow by the end of 2012. Russian authorities believe that these new shelters are urgently needed because the current nuclear bomb shelters will only hold approximately half the population and are quite outdated. In addition, there are apparently very few nuclear bomb shelters for those living outside the city center at this point. Officials want virtually the entire population of Moscow to be able to reach a bomb shelter within a matter of minutes. But in this era when the "Cold War" is supposed to be over, why are 5000 nuclear bomb shelters such an urgent necessity?
