    We shouldn't, and we won't - at least not until (if) President Obama is re-elected.

    Yes we should. The regime in Iran is directly responsible not only for it's facilitation of acts of terrorism, and the deaths of countless innocents.

    But also for the deaths of American Soldiers in Iraq.

    Not to mention the fact that Iran, consistently attempts to undermine, and destroy the government of Israel, which is an ally of the United States.

    Sacrifice our young men's lives so Big Oil can seize the Iranian oil fields, hell no!

    Iran lookin' to provoke a fight...

    Iran warships enter Mediterranean via Suez Canal
    18 February 2012 - Iranian warships have entered the Mediterranean Sea for only the second time since the 1979 revolution.
    The destroyer Shahid Qandi and its supply vessel Kharg have passed through the Suez Canal but their destination remains unclear. Navy chief Admiral Habibollah Sayari told the Irna agency the mission was a show of might and a "message of peace". Two Iranian navy vessels entered the Mediterranean in February last year. Israel called it a "provocation".

    Admiral Sayari was quoted by Irna as saying: "The strategic navy of the Islamic Republic of Iran has passed through the Suez Canal for the second time since the Islamic Revolution." The mission conveyed "the might" of Iran to regional countries and Tehran's "message of peace and friendship". The ships were reported to have docked earlier at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. Reuters quoted a source at the Suez Canal authority as saying the vessels might be en route to Syria.

    The mission comes amid heightened tension between Iran and Israel. Iran has recently announced developments in its nuclear programme, prompting some speculation Israel may launch an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities. Israel has also blamed Iran for recent attacks on Israeli targets in Georgia and India, an accusation Tehran denies.

    What sanctions? Top five countries buying oil from Iran.
    Iran is the third-largest exporter of crude oil in the world, behind Saudi Arabia and Russia. Its economy relies heavily on oil exports. Recent Western sanctions have targeted Iranís oil industry in hopes of pressuring Tehran to address international concerns about its nuclear program.
    However, the effect of the sanctions could be limited if Iranís top customers keep buying oil, or even increase their imports. According to tallies from June 2011, here are the top 5 importers of Iranian oil:

    1. China

    China bought 22 percent of Iranís oil exports in the first half of last year, making it the top importer of Iranian oil.

    China has increased its imports of Iranian oil, as other countries including Italy and Britain have decreased their volume, according to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). Iranian exports of crude and other oil products to China totaled close to 540,000 barrels per day (bpd) in China last year Ė up from 426,000 bpd the year before.

    Despite US pressure to help squeeze Iranís economy, Beijing has consistently stood its ground on remaining a loyal customer of Iranian oil. China is one of the most populous countries in the world, and is dependent on oil imports to fuel its economy.

    So here is my suggestion: Forget bombs -- we should drop Obama administration policy makers on Iraq and Syria. That would ensure the ruin of the Islamic State in no time!

    Iran is not a threat to anyone. But they do stand in the way of zionist expansion, and Israel won't stand for that.

    Wow, that's dumb. Really dumb.

    Israel is in the same place it has always been. Israel is not threatening to annihilate Iran. Israel is not shooting missiles into Iranian residential neighborhoods.


    Again, I'm simply dumbfounded by the ignorance of your comment.

    When was the last time you heard anything from Israel, solemnly stating that their goal is to annihilate Iran? Or any other country, for that matter?
