  •  A few comments about Iran: (7+ / 0-)

    There is a significant segment of the population that has friendly feelings toward the West and the USA.

    Iran is a Muslim nation, but not Arabic. They speak a different language, Persian, and they are Persians, not Arabs.

    They have the most formidable military in the Middle East, excluding Israel. Geographically, they cut the Muslim world in two. In both geographic and military terms, they are the keystone of the Muslim world.

    Now, I don't contend that we'll be drinking buddies any time soon, but a friendly Iran, or at least a non-belligerant Iran, would be a great thing for the USA for decades to come.

    Bombing Iran would have dire consequences for the next half century. It would be a blunder even more calamitous than Iraq and Afghanistan combined.

    On the bright side, if you owned Lockheed or Boeing stock ...

    Republicans proved in October that they are UNFIT TO GOVERN. Don't let the voter forget it. (-7.25, -6.21)
