I should make it clear by my post that I'm not saying by any means that we need to use force in Iran immediately.

I just mean that we should start the diplomatic process NOW so it won't turn into a mess like Iraq did with allies and such.

"A couple well placed Hellcat missiles will take care of the whole Iranian program."

That´s not very diplomatic. No offense intended, I didn´t say you have to be diplomatic..

"I have no reluctance in saying that the Iranian government would have very little problem dropping a few nukes on the US."

Um, maybe you should quote Iranian governmental sources for that? Or was that just a Cheney-like assumption?

You took my "Hellcat missiles" comment out of context. I merely said that I don't think the IAF would let the Iranians get operational nuclear missiles, and that they'd drop a few missiles from some fighter jets to take out the Iranian nuclear program. They did the exact same thing with Saddam.

And yes, that was a Cheney-like assumption, but an assumption based upon Iranian actions recently in being extremely belligerent with their weapons program, basing missile distances on "ability to hit Israel".

Oh my God, you guys totally missed my point. I named the thread this way because of the website's sense of humor that I thought I might share with you guys.

Hell, no: I wouldn't like to bomb Iran or wouldn't want anyone else to bomb Iran. I completely forgot I had made this post because I was just sharing Maddox's sense of humor because I think he's hilarious. That was it. The whole point of this thread was the sense of humor in that website.

I'm sorry

It's not an 'if' but a 'when and by who'.

Just waiting for the US election, and then whoever is US President, either the US or Israel will do it. There's no doubt about it.

GB, France and Germany work for a diplomatic solution at the moment.
I hope their (definetly not easy) work will lead to success

As do I.

But don't be surprised if the IAF takes this into their own hands. I'd be uneasy too if I was an Israeli, and an entire hostile nation based their missile ranges on "ability to hit Israel".
