Sooner or later something will have to give with Iran. If something does happen, it better happen sooner then later.
What happens when a rogue nation positions itself where an attack would be counter-productive.
Sanctions are not going to work. But things are going to reach a head where “something” has to be done. Israel does not have the ability to sustain an extended war with iran.
Now that the Muslim brotherhood has taken power in Egypt, any attack on Iran by Israel might cause Egypt to attack Israel.
If we can not secure our borders to stop illegal immigrants from walking into the nation, how are we supposed to stop a nuclear device?
The US government has been very irresponsible with securing our borders. Millions of illegal immigrants have walked across the border. What is to stop a terrorist organization from driving a nuke from mexico and into one of the border states.
Then there is internal security. How many of our dams are secure? How about our bridges? How about our power plants and refineries?
One might argue that it would be stupid for Iran to use a nuclear weapon. But since when do people with radical religious views use logic?
I understand your point. But we are talking about a nation that hangs homosexuals.
There are radicals out there that believe the world is to be ruled by sharia law. We can not reason with people like that.
Worse case situation, Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons, Israel attacks Iran, Iran nukes Israel.
Jews and Muslims have been fighting each other for thousands of years. The introduction of nuclear weapons escalates that conflict to a whole new level.
