Boy, I'd be depressed if i thought the way you do. I could easily debate you point by point on everything, but I'll stick with what the topic is. Iran is not a threat to the US directly. Despite the fact they are taking direct intervention in Iraq by supplying insurgent groups, Iran doesn't pose a threat to the US. But if for a moment you don't think Iran can't (or won't) release either materials or know how to help terrorists create a dirty bomb, I think you're deluded. I also think you're deluded if the US is just going to willy nilly launch an assault because Emperor Bush is bored. Iran can be very patient. It can afford to be. But when you have a nation that is aggressively supporting terrorist organizations around the Middle East (Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad) in order to attack other nations like Israel, Jordan, Lebanon (the massive number of Anti-Syrian politicians that have been assassinated is quite alarming) then you have a problem that needs to be dealt with. This isn't the Twilight Zone. This is what life has been like ever since man came on the scene, and this is what it will be like until we are all gone.
