    What if you are wrong? Can you afford a long land war with Iran? As a citizen of the United States I have to tell you that it would appear that you desire too many wars so I feel that those that push wars should fight them. I do not want my son getting killed in a war of choice. When I was in vietnam I never saw any helping troops from Israel. My brother was in Korea and I know he never saw any helping troops from Israel. War can lead to the complete destruction of the homeland of the jews. Many would consider that a good thing while I have to admit i do not care. I have no problem with the existence but if you decide to bomb another nation and get wacked badly then it was your decision. My feeling is let Israil be what ever it wants to be. BTW I am opposed to one cent going to any other nation than the United States. Good luck and I would hope that your strong feelings on the matter is followed by a quick trip to the enlistment office. I believe over 5000 IDF were killed in the 1973 war. Iran lots a million in the war with Iraq so they know how to play the long drawn out war. How do you think a war of attrition would last with the very small population of Israel going after the 70,000,000 Iranians who now have 30 years of war experience. Too long of a rant but good luck and leave me and my son out of any action that you dec ided to take.
