Iran has the option to let international agents to monitor their nuclear works. They wouldn't refuse this unless they were hiding something. I get a little angry that China has gone unpunished for so long even after they dump us into an economic crisis. Sorry, but American freedom and prosperity is only with us as long as it's guarded carefully.

And what about Israel?

Should we just sit back and let them away with it? If Iran is forced into nuclear work/missile monitoring then shouldn't Israel too?

They need this war to secure the the oval office and to beat Ron Paul. If we do go to war before the election Ron Paul is toast.

This is the only thing that could save the current president from loosing office.

It is sad but true.

Let's hope not. If common sense was more common, people would realize this and let the gov't know with their votes.

It is inevitable. We took Iraq and all of its budies. One nation after another. How long before the world decides we are just as viscious and dictatorial as the ones we claim to be liberating?

Now, i am "slowly" becoming really angry over those current USA/Iran threats.

*) The US has not provoked anyone.
The US has threatened with sanctions against Iran, telling them 'If you continue to build your nuclear bomb we will enforce sanctions"

Where for God's sake is this PROVOKATION?

In answer to the threatened sanctions by the US, Iran replied

"If you will enforce sanctions we will block the street of Hormuz, no oil will come out there anymore IN ADDITION we will of course happily build our nuclear bomb"

So..if you seriously think that THE US IS PROVOKING you are mentally not all there, sorry!

Your reply has merit, people will flame you though, because they are scared!
They know that a war with Iran could esculate into a exchange of bombs with
the other big players.

Peace for 2012

lets start a huge thread and send it to the majot powers.

We the people of all nations want peace.
We want that more than anything else.

Be governments of peace or you will be taken down by the people.
The people are us, do something your selves

This is what forced Japan to attack Pearl Harbor. But of course, the history books have written that it was all Japan's fault...

Remember PNAC, ``we need a new Pearl Harbor``? Well after 9/11, they gonna go for a literal Pearl Harbor to start a war.

They did not force Japan to attack Pearl Harbor, Japan could have just stopped its invasion of China the entire reason for the embargo. Iran also has the option of stopping threatening its neigbors and funding terror attacks. Its not like embargos come out of the blue they are very slow to create and people have plenty of options to change before they occure. Also a big flaw in this theory is Japan though they had a chance by attacking european nations already busy at war and a United States who was isolationalist amd had one the smallest militaries in the modern world at the time. Iran has no chance and they know it. What would its war goals be exactly? Of course they could go crazy and go to war, that would suprise alot people in intelligence community.

The santions are not intended to start a war. They are intended to drive disatisfaction from within Iran to create regime change. If the US wanted war they would have had it already.
