Iran Rattles Sabers, Rd. IV.

News From The Associated Press: "Iran threatened the United States with 'harm and pain' Wednesday for its role in hauling Tehran before the U.N. Security Council over its disputed nuclear program.

'The United States has the power to cause harm and pain,' Iran said a statement meant for delivery at the International Atomic Energy Agency's 35-nation board meeting in Vienna on Iran's refusal to freeze uranium enrichment."
"But the United States is also susceptible to harm and pain. So if that is the path that the U.S. wishes to choose, let the ball roll.""

So Iran pretty much says 'Bring it!' to the world, in the middle of diplomatic relation no less. A similar circumstance: A chiwawa going through the trash, and a St. Bernard finding him. Chiwawa goes bonkers barking. But who could cause the most damage?

If Iran wants us to "Bring it"...then we should... Iran clearly has weapon stockpiles, and refuses to give them up. If we don't do something about it, terrorist nations, like Iran, will get bolder.

Yup. Although if you've noticed, North Korea has drastically toned down their rehtoric. Although they are probably more reasonable then a religios zealot bent on Jihad.

What kind of strike are you talking about? Nailing them with a bunch of bombs, or a prolonged 'pacification', i.e. freedom infusing stay, similar to Afganistan and Iraq?

I think, right now, Iran is more of a threat then North Korea is...

If we do invade or attack Iran, we should do it swiftly and devestatingly. Bombing would be fine. If President Bush began another prolonged, drawn-out invasion.... it would be too much for America's military and its politicians...
