    Thats democracy. So if a bunch of incompetents are running the USA and apparently Israel, thats just a reflection of the level and capacity of the majority who voted them in. And quite frankly, that level is reflected here in this discussion. The problem of Iran is so complex cuz it touches so many issues on various levels. It started in 1953 when US-UK deposed a populist democratic PM and replaced him with a despot leading to Islamic Rev '79 and undying bitterness to US. It has to do with competition for energy resources, global economic growth, resurgent Islamic fundamentalism (of course), the festering wounds of the Isr-Pal issue, egopolitics of several leaders, etc etc. Bombing one's way to a solution is the one thing which is gauranteed NOT to work of all possibilities. Most of you one-trick pony tunnelvisioned hawks here are not only digging ur own graves but those of the rest of us as well! www.thru-other-eyes.com
