I am glad there is someone besides myself with this view. Well said.

Goodness! Mr. Flea is getting pretty hardcore in his old age!

I approve. We need more hardcore.

Part of my continuing series featuring obvious solutions to supposedly intractable problems. Also known as advice nobody is going to take.

I don't know, Herr Flea.

I find Hitch's point #3 to be lame. They don't need nucs to make outstanding and deadly @55holes of themselves in this regard. It's a whole lot cheaper to pass on conventional explosive in large quantities to achieve decent results using the MLRS trash truck.

I'm with TPM Barnett. Let them go nuclear. What's it going to do for them? Everyone around them will be pissed and on guard because of it. It gives them a tangible problem next door as a reason to be more amenable to the US/NATO/West.

It's not intractable. It's not even that much of a problem. Whether you buy it being the Mullahs in charge, or that the REvolutionary Guard Junta last year made it a dictatorship, they don't want to see their empire end.
