#1 Uh, huh? For a Vice President of the Academy for Geopolitical Issues he seems to be remarkably ignorant about bunker buster technology. (Fred, this nic generator thing is intoxicating. I may neer use my real nic again.)

#2 This is the second article from Russia about the US attacking Iran.

What are the Ruskies up to?

#4 “When and how will be Iran attacked?”
Not "if" or "whether". Interesting.
If you attack a nuclear facility when 'conventional'(non nuclear)bombs, how do you convince the skeptics that the resulting radiation is not from your choice of weapons?
Me thinks the Ruskies are setting this up for a big propaganda push.

#5 Or maybe the Russians are playing the mental card to get payment from the Iranians to finish the reactor. Or maybe we are using the Russians as a mouthpiece to telegraph what we want to do since nobody really believes them much anyway anymore.

Hmm....

#6 I'm at the point where, despite all my past objections, if hitting Iran depends upon America using nuclear-tipped weapons, I'll resignedly have to agree.

As always, I'd really rather we did not sacrifice the moral high ground that we've husbanded so impeccably for the last 60 plus years. All the same, Iran must be brought down and if there is one single terrorist nation on earth that so richly deserves the horrors of nuclear attack, it can only be Iran.

Yes, both Russia and China deserve it even more. Russia for being the midwife of modern day Islamic terrorism, while China is on the Christmas list for mass murder in the unknown tens of millions called their "Cultural Revolution". Mounds of Dung Mao Tse-tung is Hitler's ideological twin and history needs to bear this out.

Being obliged to settle for less than global nuclear war, I'll happily see Iran's atomic R&D facilities bathed in nuclear fire. It would not only be more than appropriate, but would send an unmistakable message to all of our other terrorist foes of what awaits them as well.

Again, I still believe that we do not need to use nuclear weapons. I also think that Bush has the wisdom to understand why we should not do so as well. All said and done, per Dr. John Lewis' excellent discourse on why Iranian theocracy must go, whatever it takes, let's get this over with. Many other pressing tasks are at hand and Iran is merely one of the first in line at America's kissing booth.

#7 consequences of a US nuclear strike on Iran will affect neighboring territories as well

Yes. It might shock their neighbors into playing nice for a while. In fact, they might find they enjoy it so much they will continue to do it even after they figure out it was for their own good.
