    What do you think Iran could do to the United States in retaliation if we ever attacked their nuclear sites or military installations with naval and air force units?

    I think a third of them will hate us more than they do now. I think another third would be honest enough to know their leadership brought this upon them. The last third will be dead, and what they think won't matter.

    Pretend we unnecessarrly killed innocent civilians. Attack Israel. Play the part of a victim.

    Shut off the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz.

    Launch missiles against Saudi Arabian oil fields.

    Initiate a huge Shiite uprising in Iraq against our troops there.

    I'm not too concerned with retaliation, as the Iranians rely on Russia & China for their technology, the same thechnology the Syrians used, that did not detect Israeli intrusion, or protect the facilities they were supposed to.

    Numbers 1 and 3 of what I listed don't require advanced technology to pull off.

    That may be good, in the long run. We could dig our own oil, we could use nuclear power, and we could tell the enviromental patients to step off. It would be good for us to be forced off terrorist oil.

    Bummer for them. Perhaps they should be a better ally.

    Again ?

    We don't purchase oil from Iran. Iran would be cutting off oil shipments from other Middle East countries that we currently purchase.

    I would suggest that you take care of the additional oil drilling in this nation before we would go to war with Iran. And since it will take about 5 years to get that oil flowing a war with Iran wouldl have to be put off for about 5 years. Otherwise, you had best be ready for your country to go into a severe economic recession/depression.

    I don't share your pessimism. I don't want war with Iran. But they want it with us. We'd be silly not to take them seriously.

    If they shut the straight of Hormuz, we will open it. We've done it before.

    But yes, I want it a goal to use our own resources. Our next president should share that.

    I seriously doubt that the average Iranian wants a war with these United States. I doubt that even the mullahs in Iran want a war with these United States. I think they just enjoy yanking on the Bush administration's chain and watching them get all bothered.

    Yes, having lived through the oil shock-induced severe economic recession of the 1970's I do not desire to have to live through another one. I don't think anyone who lived through it wants to see a repeat - especially for the specious reasons that the Bush administration and other warhawks want to start a war with Iran over.

    You and I won't agree on Iran. You see it as schoolboy taunts, I see a dangerous game with global implications.

    I also see global implications if the Bush administrations bungles the situation with Iran as badly as it did the situation with Iraq.

    WHAT?
    Where were you in the 1970's
    Iran is using technology we gave (or sold to them) in 1975-1980
    Planes,Rockets,Bombs,trained their pilots sold A10's AIM 7's A7's ETC
    you might want to think that we are not at least partly responsible for the problems in the Mid East but that would be either blind,Iggnorance or unfailing refusal to believe the facts.
    Which is it for you Bro Curtis?
    I was there and I know what I'm talking about,regardless of whether on not you choose to try............to refute the facts.FACTS ARE FACTS............
