    Doesn't work that way.

    If we were to execute a preemptive strike on Iran, one of the first sets of target to be blown to smithereens would be their enriched uranium plants. So they'd have no weapons grade material to make nukes.

    The second set of targets would be their ICBM/IRBMs. So they'd have nothing left to launch against our Middle East allies or our own deployed troops.

    The real threat is that Russia and/or China would retaliate against us to prevent the US from having a presence on or close to their respective borders. They're the threats, not Iran.

    War in the middle east seems to be forever. Financial suicide, and a never ending loss of American lives, Bolton & Pompeo are avid war hawks! Iran is threatening that right now, Trump's stupidity cancelling the "no nukes" agreement. not perfect, but better than watching them make nuclear weapons, the other stupid thing Trump did, was dissolve the TTP which included every Asian country, except China. That was a better way of putting China in check, but Trump chose tariffs, and make consumers pay higher prices. Don't let Trump fool you, YOU are paying the tariffs!

    Iran's already working on making nuclear weapons. If we're at the point where we have to tolerate whatever bad behavior or temper tantrums that Iran generates rather than risk nuclear war, then we might as well surrender now and be done with it. In actuality, Iran isn't going to go nuclear to preserve their "right" to blow up tankers in the Persian Gulf. Like all bullies they will fold if/when someone stands up to them.

    The reason why we cannot allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons is because the Ayatollah is not afraid of killing most of his people if he can kill everybody in Isreal with just one bomb. He says that Islam will live on but the Jews will not. He says that Allah will sort out the true believers and deliver them to Heaven.

      No. About as bid as the A-bombs used by the US in 1945. Deliverable by airplane.

    They will attack Israel. Israel will retaliate. Other Islamic states my attack Israel Russia may come to the defense of Iran. Basically WW3 starts. China stays out of it and emerges as the leading country in the world while getting rich selling to both sides.

    If Israel's existence appears threatened they will use nuclear weapons.

    The evangelicals are probably drooling over the prospect of an apocalyptic war in the Middle East so they can say it validates their prophecies. In fact all it will bring for all is misery.

      VERY POOR job of slicing-and-dicing, bobbing-and-weaving, and general head-faking, "liberal".

    People will be distracted from Trump's legal problems at home (for a short time and then they will resume).

    The American Military-Industrial complex will have a good quarter (but then again they always do).

    The consequences for Iran and the Middle East will be more severe and negative (but who cares about that?).

      I kind of meant that sarcastically (I actually do care, but many people don't). You can decide for yourself.
