Destroy Iran's nukes now?

This guy gets it.
For those who do not delude themselves with naive fantasies about charming Mr. Ahmadinejad into abandoning his nuclear quest - for which the prospects are virtually zero, our nation's only rational course of action should be black and white. Accordingly:

(1) Urgently initiate a massive buildup of the conventional weaponry needed to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities and wipe out its retaliatory capabilities as well as arm Israel to the teeth. Also station Aegis anti-missile ships along our coasts while beefing up homeland security and taking steps to mitigate the effects of an EMP attack. To do any less would be totally irresponsible and reckless.

(2) Launch a massive series of preemptive strikes on Iran as soon as possible and send in special ops forces to ensure the mission was accomplished.

The key is for the United States to hit the Iranians so hard and so fast with such overwhelming and devastating force that they have no chance to react or recover, something the Israelis alone cannot do unless they nuke Iran.

Never before has an American president faced a more fateful decision. Fortunately, however,the risk of military action is inconsequential as compared to the risk of inaction.

A possible temporary interference with the flow of Persian Gulf oil, for instance, as bad as it would be, would not begin to equate to the consequences of an EMP attack on the United States. The American people must understand that no less than the survival of our nation as we know it today is at stake and that circumstances beyond our control could prompt a catastrophic EMP attack upon us at any moment. In my view, absolutely nothing can justify our living with such a horrific risk for one day longer than we must.

Because the public and most of the Congress have little or no understanding of the nuclear doomsday hanging over us, it is imperative to immediately begin a national debate on this issue. Only such a debate may prompt us to overcome our biggest weakness: The seeming inability of too many Americans - including our present leadership, to come to grips with the idea that some of our enemies would willingly self-destruct if they could take us down. So tragically, since we won't act on what we won't believe, it will very likely take a cataclysmic catastrophe to bring us to our senses - but only after it's too late.

It is past time for America to get its head out of the sand if we are to prevent a looming nuclear doomsday.
Read it all.

Carl - I don't disagree with the obvious Rx.

But don't hold your breath waiting for Hopenchange to do what needs to be done - the Obama Administration wasn't even interested in hearing what Israel had to say about the Iran threat.

Of course Iran's nuclear capability needs to be destroyed goes without saying, but it looks right now like that is going to be up to Israel to address.

And this is why I've spent the past year preparing to survive with the entire nation without power. No ATMs, not gas pumps, no grocery store cash registers, no TV, no radio (except my battery HAM), no lights, no refridgeration etc. etc. etc. Look at how quick New Orleans collapsed without power, now imagine the entire nation in that position. . . .and the current administration in charge.
