    if they can't handle it, perhaps they should leave well enough alone until they can handle it.

    It is time to #Occupy Media.

    •  Sadly I don't think "handling it" is the point (0+ / 0-)

      There are three outcomes of the strike that RW Israeli's might be in favor of:

      1) A strike, while condemned (and that may be muted: Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states aren't thrilled with Iran's nuclear program), would be likely to harden Iranian policy in favor of a standoff instead of negotiation.

      2) A strike, even if condemned, is likely to slow down production, by a few years, of enriched uranium above 5%.^

      3) A strike, and the US response, would cause an impact on the US Presidential elections. Sadly.

      ^again, to be careful, this isn't equal to bombs although it is closer than I personally feel comfortable with from a state that has tossed out the IAEA.

      It is better to be making the news than taking it; to be an actor rather than a critic. - WSC

    •  The problem is, it isn't "well enough" (2+ / 0-)

      The President of Iran has clearly stated that he wants to eliminate Israel. If the President of Mexico were to say that, and produce atomic bombs, I can guarantee you there would be a US invasion pronto.
