Should the U.S. declare war on Iran?
Side Score: 25
Side Score: 60
Yes... and here is why:
1)if they got nuclear bomb they will do what they said they would and that is wiping out our best ally witch is israel
2)they support peoples like osama to get more and help islamic terrorists
3)they judge countries by their religion views
4)they are helping our biggest enemy witch is russia and they are trying to get their hands on america
5)their president is saying to their people officially "death to america" "death to israel" can you let someone like that have a nuclear bomb?
6)they are dictators and they don't respect human rights and they are targeting womens
and much much more
Where do you get your information from?
1). For a start Iran has said that it's Nuclear program is for energy not weapons whereas Israel already have weapons of mass destruction
2). The link with Osama and Al Quaeda is very tenuous at best, there have even been documents found in Osama's compound after his death that prove there is no link with the Iranian government. Yes there are Al Quaeda factions in Iran and these people helped Osama but that has nothing to do with the Government. The Iranian government even helped America after 9/11 until George Bush turned on them calling them part of an axis of evil.
3). All countries judge other's by their religious view's it's wrong but it happens. Muslims are singled out by oficials at American airports just because they are Muslims and in that case might be terrorist's it's the same thing.
4). Russia have been helping Iran with their Nuclear program not the other way around and what's all this Bollocks about Russia being america's biggest enemy they have been helping the US get supplies to their troops in Afghanistan, this is'nt the 80's.
5). In a recent interview the president of Iran was asked about his comment about wiping Israel off the map, he explained that he feels Israel's occupying forces should be removed from Palestine and that Palestine should be allowed to govern itself. His call for Israel to be removed from Palestine is a lot better than you calling for America to invade Iran in case they might make a Nuclear weapon, you want Ameica to invade Iran which meens many innocent Women and Children will die the Iranian president has said that he wants to see Palestine free but he wants it done peacefully if possible. The Iranian President did not say Death to America, Death to Israel those were Iranian demonstrators on the streets nothing to do with the government.
6). Yes their a dictatorship but so are a lot of countries in the world do you seriously believe that the US should invade all of them. You say they are targeting Women, how many Women and Children do you think will die if the US invades Iran.
I have one question for you as you seem to be very bloodthirsty and ready to send many people to their deaths, have you ever been in the armed forces or do you have any friend or family in the forces?
Why pick on Iran, it is believed that Israel already have Weapons Of Mass Destruction why not demand they disarm their Nukes it would then be a lot easier to go to Iran and make demands that they dont follow their Nuclear program. Asking Iran not to follow a Nuclear program when their biggest threat is already armed would have been akin to asking America to stop theirs in the 80's without making the same demands of the USSR.
A nuclear Iran is a very, very unpredictable Iran.
In what is it unpredictable? That Israel didn't sign the non proliferation treaty.
That Iran military spending is low compare to the other regent(saudi,bahrein..)
That Iran MILITARY DOCTRINE is Strictly defensive, to slow any kind of invasion
That Iran has limited capacities to project military operations beyond their borders
That The world has attacked Iraq For so called nuclear weapons and killed more than 1/2 million of CHILDREN(imagine there would be yours) after all they didn't find anything, but instead took control of the hole nation, including their resource.
The US cannot tolerate sovereignty that interferers with its key marketswillan cohen secretary defence in 1999 stated-US is committed to unilateral use of military power to defend their vital interest, such as uninhibited access to key markets,energy supplies,strategic resources
All the neighbours nation of Iran which have been invaded by the us, automatically destabilized the relation with Iran, while Iran tries to expand their relation.
The smart sanction imposed to Iran, is not more different then the one imposed to Irak(the sanction has clear effect on the civilian)
There is a LONG LONG list in which non brainwashed people can demonstrate that IRAN is not a threat, but if you research a bit, with a open minded, you would understand who is the terrorist
Guess when was the last time that Iran attacked another nation? Compare it with ISRAEL OR US
Therefore the threat that IRAN develops nuclear capability is not in view, But the terrorist state Israel and US these rogue states, can be clearly seen by the whole world as they do not regard them self as bound by the international laws
And of course these minor point that I told you, has been told by the CCA?
Your so reliable source of information. Who just tells you whatever they want that you know, and even lie to you sometimes
Iran will never have the technology to strike into US territory. Also with all the sanctions and embargoes, I doubt Iran will have the capital to mass produce nuclear weapons (think about North Korea, its economy produced a few near-defective nuclear arsenal). We could relate this example to Iraq...did Saddam have nuclear weapons the politicians had told us about? Nope...however the we got plenty of body bags.
I don't mind whether you're a hardline conservative, I am sure that you would find it in your heart to know that war is never an option because it will always result in a loss of life. We should use diplomacy to eliminate hostility, not weapons. Please don't think I'm an anti-war pinky liberal...quite honestly I dislike conservatives and liberals equally.
I did a quick bit of online research and if Iran managed to build Nuclear Weapons the majority would have to be dropped from Planes and the Weapons would probably be defective and if they managed to build missiles firing them would probably cause as much damage to Iran as they would to their intended target.
The world is sick to death of the U.S. declaring war on people it doesn't like. It's becoming a bit of an international bully, and you can't declare war and thus kill people simply because "Well, they were CAPABLE of firing first, therefore we piled in and crushed them."
The day the nation of Iran (and not a Muslim group of any kind) shows militaristic intent towards the U.S. (which will not happen, no country are stupid enough to start a war with the U.S.) then this could be reconsidered. Right now, this question reeks of the biggest kid in the playground, pointing at the weird kid and mumbling "I should kick his ass. I can, and I just might."
My main reason for this is that war should not happen. It causes destruction, death, and although it may help the economy a little, the overall effect is rather negative.
We do not have enough reason for war against Iran, and although there are problems, war will not resolve them.
No, unless Iran and I meen the Country not some terrorist group that happens to be based in a Cave out there declares War or becomes a threat and by threat I meen actually do something not just the scare stories that they might be getting Nuclear Weapons (look how well the search for Weapons Of Mass Destruction went in Iraq) they should stay out.
No matter how dangerous Iran might seem in the Middle East, the US has no right to invade a country unless attacked first. Even if Iran develops nuclear weapons, it will never have the technology to strike into American territory and thus it is not a danger to the US. Think about Iraq...did Saddam have the nuclear weapons those politicians were always telling us about?
We must stop believing all the biased mainstream media about Iran. Yes Iran is a dictatorship which discriminates against women and homosexuals...and yet even this is not covered very well by the media. Instead there is so much coverage about how ''dangerous'' Iran is and how it threatens the world stability. The truth of the matter is that Iran is weak...it has never recovered from its confrontation with Iraq in the Cold War era.
A war against Iran would be disastrous. Even if it doesn't bring China and Russia into the conflict (effectively starting World War III), the civilian fatalities will be horrific... For the sake of our families...please opt for diplomacy and world peace.
For what? Not being pro-US?
Iran has done nothing to us or Israel and wants to do nothing at the moment. Despite the propaganda says that they are trying to invade Israel, its not true. Iran is just becoming a power in that region and since the issue is very complicated they dumb it down for the masses. Iranians may be crazy, however, most of them aren't suicidal.
