Libya and Iran

Reader comment on item: Empower Iranians vs. Tehran
in response to reader comment: question for DP

=== How should Western governments deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, which Washington labels "the most active state sponsor of terrorism"? ===

In light of that, why can't we do with Iran what we have been doing in Libya. In Libya's case, NATO, international forces and the Americans strike Khadafy's military sites and have been working hard to oust him. Iran is far more appropriate to take military action on, don't you think. It has been trying to build nuclear weapons, the point of completion of which in my opinion may be of little telling and have room for error, threatening to wipe out a country, and like you said, the most active state sponsor of terrorism and hurting us. What is the difference with Libya?
