I believe that Iran would cause many casualties if the US invaded Iran.
ALL wars cause casualties.
Some worse than others.
I don't think that Iran would start a war in the US. They are much stronger at home.
Conversely the US isn't stronger at home? The possibility of an Iranian "Asymmetric attack" on US soil [Whether Pre or Post declaration of War] is out of the realm of possibility?
It would make no sense for them to attack the US unless they were so far removed from it(attacks) that it would be circumstantial at best that they were behind it
So no matter what happens in the future you are already sure they wont be behind it? Yet, it's something you yourself stated they are good at. .
Like I said earlier though, I don't think they will start attacking the US that far from home, even if they have bases (and missiles that could splash the ocean around the US) in Venezuela
One doesn't need bases and/or missiles to raise hell.
Ask the Vietcong.
My main point is that, the US is forcing Iran into a corner. They have no valid reason to do so. Even though Iran is not following the NPT, neither is the US
On the contrary, the US has drastically reduced it's arsenal and continues to reduce it's Nuclear stockpile. This was started decades ago.
There are other pressing issues than Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon (if that is what they are trying to achieve).
You are 100% sure they are not?
Please let me know if I haven't answered your question, I might need more clarification.
You're doing fine
let's just not both fall back on relying on the CIA Factbook again
There are no publicly available guidelines for determining how serious a safeguards violation might be; there is no automatic translation from safeguards violations into NPT violations. This may help explain why the IAEA has found many discrepancies, but has not yet formally found Iran to be in noncompliance with its safeguards agreement.
Maybe letting Inspectors into their hidden mountainside Nuclear facility,might do the trick? Second,The US stated for years,that North Korea was trying to build Nuclear Bombs. And Look at what happened? Another country,hellbent on creating them,with the words,Peaceful nuclear ambitions,attached to the side of them.................

One needs missiles in order to launch nuclear missiles, which is what the US is supposedly terrified of.
At the 2000 NPT Review Conference....
Edit: No I am not 100% sure they are not, but, like I posted last page, until I see proof positive I will take what the MSM and the US Government says with a grain of salt.
Cia factsheet...you promised you wouldn't tell

Life is life, whether innocent american or iranian or anyone.
Wish americans could understand this basic concept.
One day you will learn the hard way....
In an asymmetric attack [One which you said Iran was good at] A nuclear Dirty bomb would be more fitting, No?
What? No brownie points for reducing the stockpile from 40,000 active nukes down to around 4,000? I'd say that's heading in the right direction no matter how one slices that pie.
Well at least you'll admit that you're not 100% sure they are not developing them or plan too.
Israel took care of Iraq's Nuclear program. Let's hope that a repeat doesn't happen on Iran.

Not long now I suspect.
U.S. intelligence agencies believe that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States in response to perceived threats from America and its allies, the U.S. spy chief said Tuesday.
That plot “shows that some Iranian officials — probably including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei — have changed their calculus and are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime,” Clapper said in the testimony, which was submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee in advance of a threat assessment hearing Tuesday. “We are also concerned about Iranian plotting against U.S. or allied interests overseas.”
Iran has blamed the United States and Israel for a series of mysterious developments, including the apparently targeted killing of yet another Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran on Jan. 11, as well as a crippling cyber attack on the country’s largest uranium enrichment facility.
Another spoonful of fear being spoonfed to the American public. The story is clearly aimed at justifing an attack on Iran and getting some backing from the american public. Of course Iran has to be attacked if they are threatening attacks on US soil.
Will they move into Iran in the next couple of weeks or will a 'trigger' be needed first? What dreadful occurance would result in a merciless all out attack on Iran? It would have to be much bigger than 'shock and awe'.
please ues this link, if you try this, it should be the first story on that page;

This is most definately a False Flag Operation! Think about it, the US sends a ship that is due for de-commission next year to Harmoze trying to get Iran to take the bait and fire on the ship. It's one way for the navy to save a few million bucks because of the cost of dismantalling three nuclear engines. If the ship is sunk there is no need to de-commission the ship. The only problem is that it would kill all the Navy personnell in the process. There is a french ship there as well. Russia and China is standing up for Iran at thiis point and frankly I don't blame them.
Iran is not a threat against the US. Even if they had a nuclear bomb, they still do not have a delivery system in order to start a nuclear war with the US. I would suspect the CIA is trying very hard to find an excuse to start a war with Iran. I hope Iran is going to be smarter than the CIA. If not, the body count in the US is going to be really high.
Iran wouldn't dare try anything in the US because we'd be invading them in a heartbeat. We already have over two thousand soldiers close enough to Iran to start killing everyone in site already. extra DIV

I challenge any person to go to a Military center base what have you and see what it takes to keep America Free and Sleeping soundly at night. Sit in on a war room where intel goes through and see the PURE EVIL of the world.
Then with a gasp say "WOW I just didn't know" or "No Wonder" or "God Bless you for what you do"
In other words GET REAL cause outside of the land of good and plenty They All want what we have and will do anything ANYTHING to take it away
Good an plenty eh? I've been in Marines and I sat on some of those wonderful butt kicking planning missions. I saw maybe, one or two people all the time I was in the Corps that was good an honorable. And they left because of the bull#. I don't feel like this land is good and plenty at all. A whole lot of people don't. Take your idealized crud and write some fairy tale books. Hell the best place I saw to live back then was Europe. I remember thinking "I've been lied to" when it dawned on me that perhaps America wasn't number one and that all countries tell their people convenient lies ala 1984 and Animal Farm. People are so damn self serving eagerly ignorant it makes my soul hurt. Hell, the Koreans think they are number one also .
I kinda hope we go to war with Iran because it is the line in the sand (Hah hah). The only thing that changes people is pain and if so many casual Americans get caught up in the lies the only thing I think that will help them is some big pain. Bring the pain.
