 File under: Govt of Iran 

#1 obviously, super "W" is walking softly and carrying that big stick at this point; but with the Iranians threatening to stomp the crap out of the US at every turn, he could have atleast sent one shiver of scare up their collective spines! I look forward to the famous Rodney King quote at his next reaction!! Sheesh!

#2 I didn't notice much in the way of support when Israel and Hezbollah were going at it last year. That was, in effect, a case of Iran attacking Israel and stomping all over Lebanon in the process. Sustained heavy bombing of those Hezbollah bunkers would have been my idea of support.

You should have. Among other things, we conducted a massive air lift of ammunition and related supplies. We also provided electronic monitoring and intel.

#5 About bloody time, JosephM.

lotp, perhaps you meant, "a massive airlift of ammunition and things to shoot it with"? ;-)

#6 Any SSBNs on schedule for inactivation? give a couple [for rotation in and out] to Israel. It's not like they don't have nuke already, so it's not a proliferation. Older models with single warheads per bird. That should be enough to keep even the Mad Mullahs guessing. It's one thing to hobble together a bomb. It's another to build a full fledged anti-submarine op that is adequate.
