#2 Hell it, Christmas, Nuke 'em now.
And if they don't get the joke nuke 'em again on New Years.

#3 Harandi said the US is well aware that Iran can hit targets within 2500km of its borders.
Harandi, the US can hit targets anywhere in the world.

#5 We've had the Mother of All Battles so will this be the Mother-in-law of all Battles? Crazy Sibling? Father Battles?
Father battles sitting right there on the bench...

#6 Sounds like the turbans are trying to distract the "people".
Something bad (badder than usual) going down in their little slice of utopia?

#7 Propaganda, we're NOT listening, and up yours and the camel you rode in on.

#8 When Israel pops that first high-altitude nuke for EMP suppression of Iran, all of Iran's fancy noise-making apparatus goes silent - and all that will be left will be smoldering targets, and yet to be destroyed targets.

#9 "Harandi said the US is well aware that Iran can hit targets within 2500km of its borders."
According to an internet distance calculator, Iran is over 10,000km from the US.
Too bad about Egypt....

#10 Too bad you are smarter than most of the Iranian rubes, Barbara.

I'm with Ship. Harsh thoughts in the holiday season, but during that unpleasantness in the Pacific, we did have to nuke the Japanese twice before they had their come-to-Jesus moment.

#14 All Israel has to do is the EMP shot. The Iranians will do everything else necessary.

#16 Yes, gorb - unfortunately I know that.
I hope the Iranians aren't that stupid - for Israel's sake (and the sake of the decent Iranian people). Unlike our feckless weasel Bambi, Netanyahu has no qualms about an eye (and foot, and head) for an eye.
But unless Iran can destroy all of Israel's Air Force and IDF at one time, they face the Samson option. Bambi won't, but Netanyahu will. And God bless him for it.
In any event, what in the hell makes Iran think any attack on it would involve any U.S. soldiers on the ground, let alone 30,000? Haven't they ever heard of cruise missles? High-altitude bombers? Bunker busters?

#17 IIRC, Nutjob said the country would be proud to write off 25% of its population to solve the Jewish Problem once and for all.

#18 How much of the Iranian population would it take to be rid of its Nutjob problems?

#19 But unless Iran can destroy all of Israel's Air Force and IDF at one time
Israel's navy has a couple of nuclear subs...and nobody seems to know where they are.
