With Iran defying the UN and America revealing there plans about what they would do if war broke out then I think its fairly safe to say that war is inevitable.
How are America going to fight two wars at a time? there struggling as it is with Iraq nevermind throwing Iran into it all.

A couple of things...

First of a military draft is extremely unlikely. If I'm not mistaken the President can request one to be enstated, however, it's completely up to congress. As congress sits right now....no draft.

Secord, Iran is a fully organized, well trained and modern standing army. Regardless of any nuclear abilities they MIGHT have, their army alone is far more potent than any military we have faced in a LONG time. Its not strategically logical to attack as majority unified modern militarized county like Iran.

Its much safer to strike countries that can't fight back, like Iraq.

you say they cant fight back, but they are getting stronger as time goes on, 6 british helicopters have been shot down in the past month by rocket propelled grenades, we didnt have this problem at the beginnig of the war.

Despite an increase in attacks on our forces it is still absolutely NOTHING compared to what Iran would show us. Iraq is split into far too many militia groups, religious zealots groups, etc... to actually physically FORCE troops to withdraw. As terrible as it is to loss our guys over there it's not a war in the sense that Iran would be a war.

actually iraq's army was no slouch either at the start of the war either... but a direct invasion would only occur after prolonged airstrikes

Airstrikes are not an option since Iran has air defense all over their country...they also have a huge amount of fighter jets.......the US would most likley loose to Iran

if it came it it ( which i doubt anyway), obviously the first targets would be iran's air defense systems... i doubt iran has much air defense vs. a cruise missile.

[QUOTE="ROLFCHANK"][QUOTE="nobodyshero87"]there will most likely be a draft to fill our needs in the miltaryLukeAF24
in case you didnt hear, the democrats took back the legislative branch last fall. there will be no draft anytime soon. i doubt there would be one no matter who was in control.

Wrong. It's the Democrats that started up the draft talks in the first place.

you are wrong. it was one democrat, charlie rangel and he does it continually as a stunt. nobody supports that b.s.

There's no way our country would tolerate another war with any nation at this time. There would be a revolt if we went to war with Iran.

It's much more likely that Russia will return to its pre cold war stance now that they are debt free and led by a KGB official and invade western europe than it would be that the US would invade Iran.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/6376639.stm that report there proves you wrong, if America would never go to war then why do they have battle plans?

They are prepared for every contigency.  but again, the US government realizes that the US population would revolt if they started another war.  There is no support for it here.

It is the beginning of the end... the war is inevitable and is prophesized and will start ww3. Seek Jesus in your life, it is never too late.

True but in afganistan it's pretty "low key" if you know what i mean because their objective is done and they now only searching for Osama Bin-Laden...

First time I have actually laughed at a serious statement from someone, I want you to realize that if we wanted to we could have Iran literally wiped off the face of the planet in a few hours depending on how long it takes our nukes to get there.
