    It's time that sane minds begin to look for real diplomatic options to attacking Iran. India, Pakistan, North Korea to name a few nations have ignored the non-proliferation treaty. Here's a thought. Let Iran develop there nuclear goals and in return we will expect concessions that make sense. For openers denounce terrorism and recognize Israel. We will establish relationships with Iran and eliminate the embargo. For decades we faced off against the Soviet Union with both parties bristling with nuclear weapons. Does anyone really believe that Iran would launch a nuclear war with any country including Israel? The reprecussions would be immediate and devastating. Iran does not have to take the role of our new best friends but the ultimate stalemate of nuclear power is our best weapon.

    Israel should not be allowed to attack Iran as this could create more troubles for us, and the world.

    Isreal attacking Iran is a terrible idea. Do they want to start WWIII? And drag our country into a terrible conflict? All because or their paranoid fear of Iran.
    Iran is a proud country that doesn't like to be told what to do. They will not start a war, but Isreal seems to want to.
