Reader comment on item: Deterring Tehran

Submitted by frank keefe (United Kingdom), May 11, 2006 at 13:09

Iran has looked at Iraq and seen how America and its allies are struggling to contain the insurgents and Americans are still getting killed. They have decided that now is a good time to play its nuclear hand hoping the US doesn't have the stomach to take them on militarily. That WOULD BE A BIG MISTAKE! America would have to confront them because if they didnt ISRAEL WOULD! The Russians and Chinese who are close to this regime should make them very aware of this and tell the president that playing poker with the US will only have one outcome and that is a busted flush.
