Pre-emptively strike Iran

  • Follow Letters

Since Israel reserves the right to deal a surprise air attack against Iran, which will result in a major counterattack along with instability around the world, perhaps it would be wise for allied nations to again team up to provide the most massive air assault in aviation history by simultaneously attacking Iranian targets everywhere within Iran at the same time, and with no let-up until Iran’s unconditional surrender.

It’s time the civilized world takes action now or face a world war we cannot afford.

And who's going to pay for

And who's going to pay for this massive assault??? I guess we can just let a few more of our kids go to bed hungry at night - just so we can blow someone else's kids in Iran to smithereens, right?

We need to leave Iran ALONE.

Mr. Leonard is correct. We can again stand by and do nothing until pushed up against a wall with no other alternative.

If the U.N. allows Pakistan

If the U.N. allows Pakistan to have an atomic bomb, then it should let Iran get an atomic bomb. Fair is fair.

It’s time the civilized world

    It’s time the civilized world takes action now or face a world war we cannot afford (Dan Leonard).

Why start a war we can't afford? Our nation is broke, remember? We're no more sure that Iran has nukes than we were that Iraq had them.

We need to bring home our troops and use them to protect our borders. We also need to develop our oil and gas resources so that our economy isn't dependent on the whims of tyrants in Venezuela or the Mideast.

the leaders of IRAN are

the leaders of IRAN are certifiable nuts..they believe in the coming of the the new iman through an apocolyptic war....they are already at war with us and killing our soldiers throughout the middle east...they are lobbing rockets into israel thru their syrrogates.. the muslim religion teaches it followers to lie cheat whatever to further the cause of islam...how can you believe them when they say their nuclear program is for energy and they are sitting on all that oil..iran is dangerous and aggressive ..we can deal with it now...or later when the stakes are higher..we do need to bring our troops home from afganastain and iraq ..only because we are not fighting a war to win...its simply stupid to put our armed forces in harms way and NOT let them use the tools in the tool box to WIN...bring them home now...

Good to get this idea out

Good to get this idea out there to see just how loony some can get. The good ole, means justify the end philosophy, not well thought out but sure FEELS good. Gotta love the way a lot of conservatives push for the 'feel good' thing in lieu of a rational discussion, using intellectuals in the know. Had there been a rational discussion in '03 about the consequences of a War in Iraq, America would have taken a more reasoned and less violent course.

I've been gone for while, so

I've been gone for while, so it's good to come back and read this letter. Breath of fresh air. Bombing Iran for what? Not sure who Dan Leonard is, but I wonder if he is willing to put his children's lives on the line for this massive attack against Iran- like really on the line. I wonder if he is willing to sacrifice his children if it meant annihilating another nation. If not, then he doesn't really believe Iran is that great of a threat and you should not be calling for other people's children to be on the front lines risking their lives for a cause you can't really get behind.

That's a good post, TParty.

That's a good post, TParty. It reminds me of discussions that went on during the U.S. attacks in Kosovo. President Bill Clinton was determined to have his war, but he insisted on a war with zero U.S. casualties. Therefore we had nothing but bombing.

A commentator named Jeffrey Rubin made the remark that if a cause is not worth dying for, it is not worth killing for either.

Unpublished

I do have 3 sons in the military so I have the right to say this. If we stand back and do nothing you will see a nuke detonated in this country. You cannot reason with fanatics. Listen to what their leaders say. They want Israel destroyed. They want our way of life destroyed. They have no problem sacrificing theirs to kill you and yours. War is never pretty but if you give the military a clear objective and keep politics and the media out of it our boys will do their job!

@ TParty I don't think any

@ TParty

I don't think any father is going to answer that they would "sacrifice" their child for a war.

I feel strongly enough to go over and sacrifice myself for the Syrian kids getting fragged and murdered, but i'd categorically oppose sending my kid over there.

Unpublished

Amen, amen. WHEN not if (but not under our current foreign borne muslim lead regime--wait for President Santorum or Palin later this year) we liberate Iran watch the gas price fall to $1.25.

As an added bonus there are thousand of arab speaking missionaries ready to deploy to bring the Gospel to the precious people of Iran held in bondage so long.

And finally we get payback for taking our hostages under Jimmy Carter and for the evil of 9/11. Bombing and liberating can't come soon enough.
