    Iran Air War: U.S. Plans For Possibility, But Goal Remains Unclear

    This is getting rediculous....

    WASHINGTON -- Planning for an air war against Iran continues inside the Pentagon, and the U.S. Air Force could mount such intense strikes against Iranian targets that "you wouldn't want to be in the area,'' said Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, the Air Force chief of staff, on Wednesday.




    Seems that most in DC are cool with the military option....WTF?


    Obviously I think this is a TERRIBLE idea, and will lead to nothing short of the destruction of our planet...but hey...WTF do I know?


    thought I'd pose it to the posse here and ask if y'all think the military option for Iran is a GOOD or BAD idea ...

    It's so fugging easy to say that you're not the one doing the fighting? Modern military planners have been a lot more wrong than they've been right, especially when it involves the Middle East. I've seen it myself how stretched thin we are right now, it would not be a wise idea. Plus, "air-only" war, would eventually involve ground troops, so I don't buy that crock.

    Well Gen. Schwartz's boss is President Obama, not the Republican candidates. I would think that the President and his advisers know what is going on over at the Pentagon.
