We might be willing to wait and use diplomacy with Iran- but I wonder how long Israel will....Iran has missiles that can reach Israel, I can't see them waiting until they develop nuclear warheads....Could this be why Israel just bought a stockpile of "Bunker Buster" bombs from the US.

In D.C., There's 'War' Talk with Iran

The "totalitarian ideology" of Iran is at war with the U.S., "and if we wish to survive, we have no choice but to wage total war against it," the highly respected Center for Security Policy warns.

On October 26, the new president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in the same speech in which he declared that "Israel must be wiped off the map," said:

"Is it possible for us to witness a world without America and Zionism? ... You had best know that this slogan and this goal are attainable, and surely can be achieved."

The CSP's Decision Brief states: "In other words, Tehran's Islamofascists like Ahmadinejad are as focused today as they were at the time 26 years ago when, in the midst of the Iranian revolution, they sacked our embassy and seized our diplomats.

"The main enemy - the 'Great Satan' -- for Iran's regime remains the United States. Unless prevented from doing so, it will persist, both on its own and in league with others, to bring about our destruction, as well as that of other freedom-loving people."

Due to higher oil prices, Iran is now earning $125 million a day more in oil revenue that previously, and some of this "found money" is being used to support terrorists and accelerate Iran's Weapons of Mass Destruction programs, according to the CSP, a nonpartisan organization "dedicated to promoting international peace through American strength."

Even worse, Tehran has advertised its willingness to share the country's nuclear technology with other Islamic nations.

Also, Iran has diversified its customer base with increased sales to oil-thirsty China and India, in the process obtaining political protection and sources of advanced technology.

"The menace arising from the Iranian regime can no longer be ignored," the CSP says.

"The Shiite Islamofascists in Tehran, like their Sunni counterparts supported by Saudi Arabia, mean what they say about imposing an international Caliphate under a Taliban-style Shari'a law. And they are deadly serious about the fact that countries like ours that stand in the way will have to be wiped from the map, too."

Fortunately, in the case of Iran we have natural allies in the Iranian people, who are as eager to depose the despotic mullahs who repress them as we are, the CSP says, adding:

"For this reason among others, we should resist as long as possible resorting to military means against the Iranian regime, lest we drive even a public who hates the radical, politicized mullahs into their arms."

Instead, the CSP says the U.S. should lead the Free World in a three-pronged nonmilitary attack on Iran:

Wage political warfare. The U.S. has largely failed to employ the kinds of techniques that Ronald Reagan used to delegitimize Soviet communism and to empower its foes within the USSR. Among other things, Americans need to bring to bear the political tradecraft we usually use against one another in our electoral campaigns to defeat our Islamofascist foes.

Divest terror. American investors hold hundreds of billions of dollars worth of stocks in corporations that partner with Iran, other Islamofascist regimes and their friends. By redirecting investments into companies that do not engage in unacceptable practices, real pressure for change can be brought to bear.

Start weaning the Free World from oil. Without oil revenues, the Iranians would be far less formidable foes. We should use existing transportation technologies to power our vehicles with ethanol, methanol and electricity, made from Free World sources.
