#1 I would just a soon see them learn the hard way. Say nothing, no warning, no post-event BDA, no broadcasts, no boasting, no invasion, just a heavy kinetic stick on selected targets. Dresden them back to 629 A.D. It is long, long overdue.

#2 Dresden was a war crime. Bad example.

#3 From my POV Dresden saved some good folks.
Sorry not a war crime to them or me.

#4 If by 'war crime, you mean "stuff that happened in a war", then yeah.

But from a historical perspective, bombing each other's cities was a fad at the time.

From a military perspective, Dresden was a rail transport and manufacturing center. You can argue over the this and that, but somebody thought it was worth spending time and effort to wreck the place. Hindsight is always 20-20.

#5 Qom and Nuke centers are targets. Get over it

#6 We don't need to carpet bomb. Its simple. Bomb all railheads, POL facilities, port facilities, government buildings, bridges, water treatment plants, power stations, and any heavy industry that might support the war effort. Interdict any and all movement crossing Iran's borders in either direction and sink all Iranian flagged ships worldwide. Nothing moves in, nothing moves out. After a year, they might have 10% of their population left and Iran will simply be another place that used to be on maps.

Oh and since Mosques are part of their war effort, give each one a MOAB.
