Destroy, Gut or leave alone

Reader comment on item: Using Cold War Tactics to Confront Iran

Submitted by Brendan Doran (United States), Jan 9, 2013 at 19:47

This is not an enemy to be trifled with, gut them or do nothing. Gut means you so cripple them with endless strikes that they collapse and be prepared for all the retaliation they can bring. The proposal is trifling even though it involves violence.

These are not Communists, they draw their Power from God and Terror.

Reagan's plan worked once. Indeed containment doesn't usually work - not that he didn't pursue rollback.

No Trifling violence please. Gut - mortally wound - or don't.
