Both Parties Talk Tough On Iran

Repubs and Dems have both gone on record stating that military force is an option against Iran. The "Alice in Wonderland" aspect here is that there is talk about whether a referral to the...bum, bum, bummmmm...UN Security Council is in order here. First off, it's unlikely Russia and China will vote for anything that significantly harms their trading partner, and if they did, it would be a diplomatic slap on the wrist. So who is kidding whom here? The only way to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear capabilities is to destroy its program. Iran sits atop one of the biggest oil reserves in the world. Does anyone truly believe that its nuclear program is to "generate electricity"? If sanctions with teeth are put in place, those that hate us will be pissed off anyway, the regime won't buckle and we'll be treated with daily stories of how children are dying for lack of antibiotics and formula. Might as well get some bang for your buck and at least set them back 10-20 years.
