Why the U.S. could bomb Iran

Iran

“It’s hard to believe that the United States lacks the military might to destroy the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program—if not in one campaign, then in a series of campaigns to ensure that it doesn’t get the bomb.”

Check out the rest of Lee Smith’s article in Tablet Magazine. The author, and Foundation for Defense of Democracies fellow, makes a compelling argument for why the U.S. military should stop downplaying our capabilities in regard to Iran’s nuclear development.

Quoting (Ret.) Gen. Jack Keane, former vice chief of staff of the United States Army:

He [Supreme Leader Khameini] must know we are dead serious about a military strike, as a last resort, and this is not just about the nuclear facilities—their military will be decapitated. This is the U.S. military. Believe me, we will destroy you.

    Jesus taught us clearly we are to pray for our leaders and love our enemies. As with Peter, the Lord stated ” if you live by the sword you will die by the sword” be at peace with God and pray.

    I think that Israel and the U.S. should make an agreement to Praise the Lord and go out with a march and praise into Iran and watch Isreal’s enemies defeat one another while they sing and praise. THat was in Jeremiah 2:20

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. Syria and Iran feel they have the proctection of those two countries. If we attempt to invade or fight against Iran and Syria, I too feel that China and Russia will definitely intervene. They are arming themselves with all kind of weaponry while we are playing politics and spending billions in wars without end. But, bear in mind that the United States will destroy those two countries if we have to go to war with them. We will no allow them to intimidate us, besides God is on Israel and the United States side. Obama since he came to power, he has been flirting with those countries and trying to reduce the size of our Armed Forces while Russia and China have increase their military budget twofold. Egypt,Lybia, and the others all are becoming extremists hence potentially our enemies especially Israel’s.
      In order to become again a Great Military Power, we must change our present government and acquire a Legitimate Democratic System…we have gone too far to the left and have spent our time flirting with the Arab World, etc.

    Russia just sent 11 ships to protect Syria and hold off a US intervention. I fear they would also attempt to protect Iran and thats a scary situation.

    Obama doesn’t want a strike on his hands now and the Iranians know this…. but Obama wouldn’t think twice about supplying all the arms needed for Israel to level Iran.

      obama is no friend of Israel. His actions here-to-for indicate that he would NOT do anything to support Israel, unless it would help him win a second term. That would be his ONLY motivation, i am ashamed to say.

      History and present times are full of top brass and generals and intelligence people who disagree about things. It is easy to cite those that agree with you and yet not recognize those that disagree. That is probably what is happening here. Those of the opposite opinion are not being acknowledged.

    Why are we so afraid of Iran and the possibility that they may develope the BOMB. They make idle talk, but if they had the bamb and used it, Israel has hundreds and could wipe Persia off the map. The same situation between USA and USSR during the cold war. Each country could not use the bomb against the other because of the retallation would be instant.

    The US has every right to bomb Iran and destroy the military infact take great pride in destroying the Iranian military. Rem it was Iran that has been supplying the terrorists inside Iraq and Afghanistan with mines and explosives that have killed thousands of men and women not including the thousands of civilians. If that is not a reason to attack a country when they are supplying and training the men to kill your troops then please tell what is. A massive attack on Iran would wake up Assad real fast. You would also see a huge decrease in violence in Afghanistan.

      If the US does attack Iran, it needs to be destroyed, but we also need to be prepared to bring the war to US soil, because there are 10s of thousands of Iranians and Iranian trained terrorists just waiting for the OK to cross the US border. However, remember that Iran will play a significant role during Tribulation, according to Revelation.

    POTUS won’t do anything unless he falls behind in the polls prior to the election. In that case, he would be tempted to “create a crisis.” He’d pick a target that could be dealt with quickly . (Syria)

        Susan, Obama is NOT the POTUS. He is an illegal alien and has never even become an American Citizen. He was NOT born in Hawaii, but even if he WAS, it would not matter, as the POTUS/Vice-President, as a “natural born (US) citizen” must have two parents who are US citizens. He did not, (his father was a Kenyan), never did become a US citizen and IS entirely a citizen of Kenya, where he was born. He is IN AMERICA illegally, and should NOT be addressed as President Of The United States.

      Obama bowed before a Saudi King..fact, he snubs Israel at every turn-including the 67 borders, fact. He was educated as a child in Islam, fact. He has members of the Muslim Brotherhood in his administration, fact. The 29 nation terrorism council formed by Obama..does not mentiom Israel, fact. Israel MUST rely upon herself, for I fear we have turned our back on Israel…judge them by what they do, never by what they say. Pray for Israel and America.

    Obama has NO idea of how to handle ANY situation let alone one as serious as the threat of Iran. Besides, he could’t care less about Israel or her safety’s. All he cares about is to be re-elected.

    It is important to respond to this Iran Nuclear issue more strategically than in earlier discussion. Have we truly examined every possible angle to preserve life and peace, or have we moved forward into a position of military dominance. I strongly believe the position of military dominance is the desirable position to be in before Iran places the nuclear bullets in the gun.

    Obama will not strike Iran, Romney would. However don’t discount Israel, they are smarter than any other people group, it would not surprise me if they have something up thier sleeve that no one is expecting and could come out of no where. just wait and see…..if the US doesn’t do it Israel will and how they do it may surprise us all…..

    Is Iran a paper tiger like Saddam was, that by bluffing and lying leads the world to believe it has wmd? Or is it for real? If its for real and its run by fanatics, on the one hand it should be taken out as quickly as possible; but, on the other hand, unintended consequences may result.

    I think we ought to let Israel do it. They have the firepower (though never if ever do they reveal their hand) and they have the most reason to destroy Iran’s nuclear capability. Besides, the whole world probably expects them to do this!

    You know and I know Obama would never approve a strike on Iran’s illegal nuclear program. He has done everything in is power to disguise the fact his embragoes are merely delays enabling the implmentation of a nuclear armed Iran.
