It probably comes as no surprise to many of you that the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been flapping his gums once again talking about how the Holocaust is not real and how the West is caving to the pressure of Iran regarding its nuclear program.
"For 60 years talking about the Holocaust was a crime in the West but now there is a serious debate about the Holocaust in the media and also in political and popular meetings," state television quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
"Even some Western politicians have declared that the original foundation of the Zionist regime (Israel) was a mistake," he said on Saturday.
Iran has grown much more confident and bold since the release of the Iraq Study Group, which more or less said to withdrawal from Iraq and that we must directly talk to Iran and Syria to end our problems in the region.
"Countries that participate in talks must not fund terrorism, must help the young democracy survive, must help with the economics of the country," President Bush said Thursday.
Bush went on to say, "If people are not committed, if Syria and Iran is not committed to that concept, then they shouldn't bother to show up."
It seems for at least over the past year that Iran and its President have been eager for a fight with the United States and have done everything possible to edge our two countries closer to a full out war.
"I think if a collective decision and initiative is taken, it might work," said Mohammed Abtahi, an adviser to former president Mohammad Khatami.
"Unfortunately many of these countries try to push their own internal crisis onto Iraq. Many of the neighbors believe if the crisis in Iraq ends, their own will come to fore — so they try to keep the Iraq crisis going," he said.
Iran should think twice about any military engagement for they do not have the ability and the do not even measure up to our armed forces.
Hell the former Iraqi army was strong enough to handle anything the Iranians threw at them and we all know what utter destruction befell the Iraqi army at the hands of our great military.
The battle would be bloody and messy as we would most likely rely more heavily on guided and non-guided bombs and do most of our damage from the air where we have complete superiority.
The Iranians would have no chance and only would cause the destruction and death of its people and its country, which are neither wanted nor needed, but if Iran continues to press on with its nuclear program we may have no other choice.
Since we would not be trying to invade this country we would not need the services of many ground troops as we will be able to overwhelming destroy all of their forces from the air with ease.
