nice in theory. too much money is involved. too much ties to jews here and in politics. obama says he wouldn't jump in and to give it time to let the sanctions take place, however, i feel it if popped off, we'd be right there trying impose our agenda on them. would be bloody.

they keep on saying that they support non military actions against iran, and china uses iran for their oil. all this !! is about oil. a lot of the world's oil come out of there. if america, europe attacked iran, their lack of oil would !! up their economy too so i don't think that they'd have much more to lose and would jump in to protect their oil interests. russia too.

politics. we just want what they have and do what we always do to get it....try to take it peacefully then by force then by democracy if all else fails.

they would have to be a shift in production methods here in the US which, yea, prolly won't happen. too much of our !! is based on oil here. we need to stop being dependent on oil completely. this would eliminate a lot of conflict in many different areas however the corporations making billions off the oil trade don't want alternatives. just profits. !! the people and what we want.
