Is there going to be a serious discussion on the war with Iran or just stupid memes?

Of course there are looneys on the left, just as there are on the right. Every group has them.

I don't think there will be a 'war' as such and Iran knows any further terror attacks by them will make them suffer with known perpetrators being taken out which is preferable to war.
Already the sanctions against them are making the country poorer and they must be educated enough to know that the West's intel seems to know if they are planning any more misdemeanours.

I don't know, I see the tit for tit back and forth, but then a full on shooting war, which almost certainly evolve into a regional war (shouldn't of stabbed the Kurds in the back, maybe?).

Iran is backed into a corner and Ayatollah's may think they have no other choice, but to stand their ground here. They know they can't beat us straight up and they are the masters of asymmetrical warfare. They've also had an extremely long time to prepare for this war. This makes me very worries for the US mainland/homeland.

As they say in two parts, who knows what happens in the fog of war when the dogs of war are unleashed.

Edit: Also who knows what China/Russia has said to them and they may think they have support from them.

I think such is the US and the supporting Israeli preperation that it will snuff out any attempt of build up by the enemy before they even have a chance to arrange a strike of some sort.

Here is the war fighting capabilities in comparison from Global Firepower.

https://www.globalfirepower.com/coun...Submit=COMPARE

You are 100% correct that they can't stand up to us and asymmetric warfare is their only hope. The wild cards in the entire enterprise are the political instability of the current regime, the will of the people, the possible intervention of China and/or Russia on the side of Iran, and the ultimate wild-card...Israel.

Hopefully the US moved enough assets into the region to deal with whatever is coming next. I also really hope they have a better plan than Rummy and his buddies for what comes next.

I saw a whole documentary on it, you guys.

Here are the cliff's notes:

* Liberal conspiracy
* MSM
* Hillary's emails
sounds like every CIA tv show/movie lol

I'm not arguing it wasn't justified or even needed. But, when you take a huge step like this you should have a plan for what comes next. That is what I'm waiting to see.

The situation 101
I tried, I really tried to give this girl a chance but so many factual errors in this video cause me to tune out.

The breaking point was "British Empire stole Iran Oil" no they didn't, they got into a contract with the government at the time, invested the resources, manpower, and know how to tap into a resources that Iran didn't have the capital or knowledge to tap into on their own.

It's not easy to predetermine where a baddie will be at a certain time or place so I think the right answer in this case was shoot first when the chance presented itself and see what happens next... they are being watched 24/7 by spy satellites.
