    Well you brought up a good point. I invite you to read about the demographics in Iran, read some of the bloggers pages...There are acouple of new books out as well within the last month or so by two Iranian women on this same topic. Sorry the namas escape me but one is about contradictions in Iran and the other about the young Iranians (70% of the poulation or almost 50 million are under 30 years old). The revolution in Iran is already underway. It is a quite one and it will take time, maybe even a decade.....the people have learned to be patient to get the right result...not another disaster. Any other intervention has to be done solely with the interests of Iran in mind. That will NOT HAPPEN. And certainly a war will not do it. We have seen that twice in the region. Saddam thought that by attacking Iran the unhappy population will rise up against Khomeini...It did just the opposite. The US thought that the Iraqis will greet them with flowers and look at what they are getting. The point that I keep trying to make here is that mis-understanding Iran will have a mis-fire of the results. You will not destroy Iranian nuclear weapons by war...in fact you may hasten their development and USE. That is absolutely crazy. As Larry mentioned in #125, there is a lot more that can be done by CO-OPERATION with Iran. If you understand that Iran is not Mr. Ahmadinejad or Khamenei...and I see some hope....the tone of responses to my remarks keep getting friendlier !!!!!!!!!
