What is it about Iran that hurts you? The IAEA have not shown any progress of Iran trying to go for a Nuclear capability. There is no appeasement here. Israel wanted to take out natantz but was stopped by George Bush because it was felt that such a step would endanger a lot more than just Israel. Firstly, Israel; could not finish the job in one attack. The damage inflicted would be partial. The repercussions would be, a threat to the US naval fleet in the Red Sea, probably hurting the flow of oil and a missile attack on Israel. You can forget the idea that the Muslim world would just sit by and let israel or the USA off with a slap on the wrist. All this was configured into the scenario that the USA considered and came to te conclusion that it wasn't worth it.

This is not appeasement and the only crocodiles around are the USA and the ultra right that exists in the West and Israel. The Muslims happily don't have a monopoly on rightiist thinking.
