    Personally,

    I think we have been screwing around with Iran letting France Germany and England do this diplomatic tap dance around them for way too long.

    Well a blockade was good enough for JFK and Cuba. I think blockading Iran and cut off their oil exports & revenues for a while would let them think about their plan to be a nuclear power.

    (Plus it would have the added benefit of causing Teddy and Kerry to absolutely blow their lids.)

    North Korea already has nukes, what are we doing about that potentially deadly situation? They could hit Seoul and Japan which would cause a much larger impact than Iran which still does not have the ballistic capability to reach Isreal.

    I agree we need to deal with this situation, but our resources and capabilities to handle this alone went out the window with the Iraq invasion. We are going to have to use diplomacy and cooperate with the major players at the UN to put a stop to their nuclear ambitions.

    Our hands are tied, compliments of this chickenhawking administration.

    Our hands are not tied. Your imagination is sorely lacking.
    There is nothing wrong with using diplomacy combined with unified sanctions. Probably infeasible. But there are viable military options that do not require troops presently in Iraq.

    Afraid of answering the North Korea question, are we?

    If you're proposing air strikes that is certainly an option, but this is not Iraq with a weakened military from a previous war. All the while North Korea watches and waits.

    Have you even taken a second to consider the ramifications of military action, or do you think this will be another quick and easy victory like you and the rest of the right beleived before we attacked Iraq?

    That sounds just like what we were doing in Iraq before Bush blew the deal. Do you simply change the ending of the country. Who's next...Ireland?

    The whole idea of any blockade makes me cringe, if we employ this strategy do we have enough manpower to enforce it? Any blockade does not effect those at the top, but mostly women and children at the bottom? Does Castro go without medicine or food? Did Hussein and his family go without?

    Blockades are a strategy that seems to be an easy answer to a very complex situation. I am for the Moussad strategy, slice and dice and get the f... out.

    Why do anything? Because the administration "intelligence" says they are a threat? You gotta be kidding! They treat the American public like the smart ass in jr. high who touches the geeky kid on the chest and says "Whats that?".

    Time to wake up.
