I'm literally speechless. IF Iran wanted a nuclear weapon, believe me they would have one by now. And if they were going to use it, Israel would have
been bombed a long time ago. They probably couldn't have developed nuclear weapons themselves, but there are plenty of old Soviet Bloc nukes on the
market...Quite a few; more than I am comfortable with, personally.
This is why I don't buy that "Iran is evil" and wants to destroy America. Iran has said the same things America and Israel have said...that they
will retaliate in an attempt to wipe the country off the map, but only if they are attacked first. If we go to war with Iran, it will not be over
quickly. One of my hobbies is studying military strategy, and I can tell you that Iran is one of the worst possible countries to invade, due mainly to
the terrain and positions of major cities and military bases, and the fact that it would be relatively easy to defend.
Plus, Iran has capabilities to put up a fight in the air theater, unlike just about any other country America has faced since WWII. The Vietnamese had
Russian fighters during the war in Vietnam, and they actually did quite a number on America's jet fighters, but ultimately we wrestled air
superiority out of their hands. Iran is modernized, and their military is modernized. I am not sure to what extent, but I know they have been building
it up for some time now, and they have the funds to purchase a large variety of weapons and technology from countries like Russia. I wouldn't be
surprised if the US hasn't sold them weapons at some point in the not-so-distant past.
Anyway, the point is that this resolution is completely idiotic, and will probably end up doing more harm than good. The problem with politicians in
Washington is that they have no idea what is going on in the real world. They don't even understand the dynamics of their own country and its
citizens, so what makes them think they are capable of tackling world issues? And why wait until now, and choose this particular point to tie Obama's
hands? I can think of some other times they could possibly have done this, but they wait for this issue. Amazing.
