Reader comment on item: Empower Iranians vs. Tehran
in response to reader comment: Libya and Iran

Submitted by Derar Mark (Israel), Jul 25, 2011 at 09:53

Libya is a six million person country right across from Europe. it is utterly flat and the majority of assets are right by the sea. despite all of the above NATO is doing a miserable job and Khaddaffi is up to his old tricks. The opposition are no saits either

Iran is 50 miilion strong set in a very complex terrain. Hitting it here and there will do nothing. You need to hit it and hard at the nuclear crux, when you know you can do the most damage. Any attack on Iran will necessarily mean an all out bombardment of Israel and US forces in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, so you must inflict a lethal blow of total disruption, one time. See why planning is important? Libya, the Somalia, and lebanon, Afghan, Iraq are all dismal failures. Let the Jews do the job right.
