malaktaus: qorkfiend: malaktaus: Meanwhile North Korea shiats on us regularlyHow does North Korea "shiat on us regularly"?By threatening us and our allies with war over the slightest provocation, or over nothing at all? By essentially forcing us to give them food, with the implicit threat of nuclear holocaust in Seoul if we refuse, meanwhile spending every last cent they have on the military?

Jim_Callahan: Iran as a nation is actually pretty cool, the population is pretty secular and actually quite educated, and it's been doing its best to modernize. A lot of our scientists come from there-- not a huge number since it's not a really big nation, but quite a few.The problem is that the national government of Iran is none of those things. They were talked into nuclear power, something that's just eminently sensible for a nation in their situation, because of the potential to make weapons. That is to say, they have the worst ass-backwards priorities of even any theocrats we know.Reading Lolita in Tehran

duffman13: Valid points. I just don't trust a stable transition and security of those weapons when Asad eventually does fall. It'll most likely end up a clusterfark on par with 2006 Iraq, and god know where those weapons would end up.I wouldn't be opposed to the US unilaterally putting some teams in to secure known sites and destroy or take any CBW they find. Then leave and let the Syrians sort it out themselves. Israel has already stated publicly they're going to blow the hell out of every CBW site they know if they ahve any indications that Hezbollah has gotten control of the facilities.The thing to recognize too is that this is *not* Iraq. The fact that Asad has CBW is well known and monitored by us, Israel, etc. I'll bet money we have a good idea where 90% of the stuff is as well. We don't have to stay to fix it either, because unlike Iraq we did not break it, and we're just doing a sweep&clear operation to prevent CBW from falling into terrorist hands in a failed state.
