Yet we've already proven that we can get into what is nearly a perpetual state of war in the region without any positive accomplishments. Nothing says nonsense war then when junior needed to whip his little pecker out to avenge some childhood fantasy revenge about Saddam not liking daddy. What this is is aggression dressed up as the next supposedly inevitable bogeyman. But when it comes to war, the chicken hawks sure like to cluck the loudest. But by definition, they aren't the ones with any skin in the game. We also shouldn't be led by Israel's perpetual fear as a reason to involve American lives and treasure on some preemptive folly. We can't just assume that Iran would do anything with a nuke besides house it and try to be a bigger bully. We should be concerned of course about how that might destabilize the region as ben put it, but here again though, we need not going jumping headlong into war based upon such worries. The real crappy thing about this is that Israel would probably just unilaterally strike first thus dragging us in anyway, and then what we get is more war based on cartoonish perceptions of Iranian leadership as being nuts.
