I would like to send the mullahs to hell. Bombing Iran is not the answer but actively supporting the Free Iran movement is.

FREE IRAN!!

Effin' hilarious.

However, young Democratic superstar Barack Obama thinks surgical missile strikes against Iran and Pakistan's nuclear facilities might be necessary, fwiw.

This thread jut makes me feel sick!!!
It makes me feel even more sick since I'm ½ iranian!!

"Would you LIKE to bomb iran"!!?
What a horrible question!!
It's not anyones right to assume it's fun bombing other countries!!
"Yeah, why not!??"
It's not right to bomb ANY (I reapeat: ANY!!) Country!!
Iran would become like Iraq or Afghanistan!!!
Misery,killing,suffering,(even more) hatred!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think I've made my point!!!
OR ELSE I'LL BE BACK!!

HAVEN'T U2 MADE YOU GUYS THINK TWICE ABOUT WAR AND KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE??
FOR WHAT? PEACE? FOR LIBERTY???!!!

Just to make sure I'll post some U2 lyric lines:
Heaven on Earth
We need it now
I'm sick of all of this
Hanging around
Sick of sorrow
Sick of pain
Sick of hearing again and again
That there's gonna be
Peace on Earth



October, talk getting nowhere.
November, December; remember
We just started again.

And today the millions cry
We eat and drink while tomorrow they die.


They don't talk about the glory of killing for the revolution
What's the glory in taking a man from his bed
And gunning him down in front of his wife and children
Where's the glory in that?

Where's the glory in bombing a rememberence day parade
Of old age pensioners their medals taken out and polished up for the day
Where's the glory in that?

To leave them dying, or crippled for life, or dead
Under the rubble of the revolution
That the majority of the people in my country
Don't want

No more

Not personally, no.

Oh, do you mean...do I wish the armed personnel of my country or a coalition of countries would bomb Iran?



The answer is still no.

The_Edge89,

Pull out your dictionary and look up the word "satire".

Definitely not. That's the last thing anyone needs.

It might not be "the last thing anyone needs" for long, if Iran ends up getting nukes (they are YEARS further along than Saddam ever was, and might have operable nukes in a year or two).

I'm not saying go in before we have firm evidence they have nuclear weapons (and certainly not before Iraq is stable), but it might end up being more necessary than the invasion of Iraq. I have no reluctance in saying that the Iranian government would have very little problem dropping a few nukes on the US.

North Korea is an extremely imperative concern though. The better question would be "Would you like to bomb North Korea?"

I have a feeling that the Israeli Air Force probably won't let it get that far in Iran anyways. A couple well placed Hellcat missiles will take care of the whole Iranian program.

I want to if we need to, I won't enjoy it or anything, but if it's needed we should.

And yes, sometimes bombing is needed.

I agree, shart, I'm not a pacifist either. I used to be, actually, but Bosnia changed me. Then I supported the actions in both Kosovo and Afghanistan, but I had major questions about Iraq, and attended anti-war demonstrations before the war. I don't see what anyone would gain by bombing Iran, so I'm against it.
