" I see your point but don't agree only because Iran has been playing chicken for more than five years "
I see you point and I agree with it. I also think the part about playing "chicken" is along the exact same lines of Saddams actions after Gulf 1. Weather 41 knew it or not the best thing he could have done and really did was leave a weakened Saddam in power. By doing so Saddam still acted like a really tough guy to be feared which helped to keep Iran in check and not going back to war with him.
If Saddam had ever acted as weak as he really was I think Iran would have finished the job. For the same reasons Iran can not back down and act weak because now they have real threats on 2 sides of them instead of one phony threat on one side.
I can't speak for you but if we go in to disprupt another country I'm going to need a lot more questions answered about going in, in the first place and what are the plan for an "end game". I know the talk radio show commandos have already figured out we can do everything with "airpower" but their track record while serving in the active military is non-existant.
