I'm A Complete Foreign Affairs Idiot

But the rumblings over Iran's potential nuclear capabilities have escalated this week. And throw in the fact that the new Iranian president said a couple of months ago that Israel should be "wiped off the map" WITH the fact that today there is news that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike, and this story gets scary. Jacking around in Iraq is one thing. A full scale war between Israel and Iran (which we would be sucked into because of our support of Israel) is something frighteningly different.

We should have made a parking lot out of Iran in the early 80's.

Face it folks, we just don't have the military ability to take on all these different countries alone. And the simplistic answer for some to "just nuke 'em" is a non-starter. Just imagine if someone nuked us. Would we then roll over and quit the engagement? I'd say, no way! It would be the same way in these other countries.

I had an Iranian professor who once said, "It's ok for you to not like the Ayatollah. But when the Ayatollah doesn't like you, it's time to leave."

Where's the best place to be in case of nuclear war? Someplace where you can say, "What was that?"

What? Me worry?
