  •  The result of such a bombing campaign (1+ / 0-)

    will be massive retaliation on the part of Iran.

    That will mean a lot more pressure, not less.

    Bombing Iran is far more dangerous than Iran getting The Bomb.

    •  Would it? (0+ / 0-)

      see my comment below, but I could imagine Khamanei using it for domestic purposes and not provoking a wider war by retaliating except by proxies (who may not comply if rumors of movements away from Iran and toward Egypt are to be believed.  The Syria situation does make that calculation somewhat trickier.)

      In any event the case for US intervention is basically nil.

      •  Pretty hard to buy that a regime which survives (0+ / 0-)

        entirely on  the claim "We will protect you from the West" will not respond when their hand is forced.

        Bombing Iran is far more dangerous than Iran getting The Bomb.
