Lost Thought 00: UN will step in as Peace Keepers, and the US will support that mission.

Is that the New World Order Black Helicopter Illuminati Freemason Trilateral Commission UN, or the Strongly Worded Letter Gang That Can't Shoot Straight UN?

Zeno-25: What are all Jews, Muslims, and Christians going to fight over when the city is a pile of radioactive rubble?

They'll find something.

In the meantime, I'd rather go with a less-severe option - the "We Are Sick Of Your Shiat, So Grow The Fark Up And Play Nice Or We Kill You All And Take Your Stuff" Doctrine.

It works like this:

All sides concerned have until 9/11 of my first term as President for Life to lay down their weapons and figure out a way to co-exist in peace.

In the meantime, any imam, grand mufti, jihadi-wannabe, priest, bishop, cardinal, rabbi, rebbe or whatever who so much as farts in our general direction in protest can consider themselves targeted for assassination and their houses of worship seized and converted into bars, gay bars, outrageously flaming gay bars with ladyboys dressed as Abraham, Jesus and Mohammed dancing in cages, strip joints, bordellos, sex-toy emporiums, or shrines devoted to bacon and pork products in general.

You guys don't see the strategy?

Canada severs ties with Iran. Other countries see one of the G8 do this and follow suit. Iran, the #4 oil producer, doesn't sell oil to these countries. Canada, the #3 producer, does. More money.

People don't want Canada's oil. Decide to switch to nuclear. Canada, the #1 producer of uranium, sells them uranium. More money.

It's all about the Bordens.

The Dog Ate The Constitution: The U.N. needs to write multiple strongly worded letters to Iran. That will surely fix the problem.

Like the ones they sent Libya?

I had a thought.

We should totally troll Israel.

If they start a war with Iran, we should take Iran's side.

No, seriously, I know we have numerous treaties with them and all, but I am just tired of our nation getting played and patted down for cash by Israel. Why should we give a flying fark what happens in that shiatty ass part of the world.

Meh, broker a deal where Canada provides backing for Israel. Canada has a better economy. They can afford a war. It's a win/win/win. The US is seen as a strong manager of world security because we broker the deal. Canada gets respect for its fine military. Israel has back-up, but not so much backup that it can rush heedlessly into a war for shiats and giggles.

MacEnvy: I've been concerned lately (not in the troll way) that Israel is going to launch a major offensive in the next couple of months against Iran. Obama will have 3 choices as I see it:

1. Pull a Romney and offer material assistance to Israel, backing up their stance and activities.

2. Decline to help, but offer neither condemnation nor aid.

3. Condemn any actions against Iranian civilians and stay out of the fray.

None of those helps him in November. Netanyahu would be pleased with the first, and this is certainly the Romney course. The latter two place him on the defensive politically for nutjob evangelicals.

I don't see how it could end positive for him politically. I really, really hop Israel can keep in in their pants for a couple of months.

4. Bomb the fark out of Iranian military and nuclear facilities.

That would be the politically correct thing to do in a close election, he would draw moderate support from the right, he's not going to lose the left over a well executed military exercise - recall that killing bin Laden in by invading Pakistan without capture and trial is now a good and heroic accomplishment for the left, he didn't get the left to boot out his nomination over still being in A-stan, so politically his best bet is to kick Iran in the butt and do it swiftly and effectively, install a permanent military base and reseat the government which stole the elections in the first place, or does anybody remember that any longer.

and it's materiel, if by support you mean providing things like military equipment.
