Why war with Iran would spell disaster
US politicians are ratcheting up calls for war without being honest with the public about what it would really mean.

[[[".....This reticence is reflective not of goodwill towards the Iranian regime, but of a recognition that such a war would be catastrophic to American interests and would have serious implications for continued global stability. Americans are being goaded and misinformed by cynical political maneouvering which is attempting to steer them into another disastrous and assuredly bloody war for the sake of interest group politics and short-term political expediency.

If there is to be another pre-emptive war of choice, this time with Iran, American politicians must openly and honestly acknowledge what this would mean for Americans and for the world and allow them to make their decisions thusly.

War is never a choice to be taken lightly, but the potential consequences of a war with Iran would be unprecedented - the dangerous game being played at present by many US politicians is one which could take Americans down a ruinous path without their informed consent....."]]] pure logic a War with Iran, according to mentioned data, could be the last straw on the "camels" back...!

...USA did IRAK first, then Afghanistan, with the bogging down aftermath guerrilla local warfare...!

...Nobody seems to realize that data suggest IRAN to be more powerful militarily, and of having a Geographical position of worse World economical consequences !

...i do not think an attack on Iran can be done as easily and with less amount of power and military than the 2nd Gulf War ! might mean a Japan Hiroshima, with less military cost, but worse, civilian lives loss and World judicial costs !

...all i know is, IRAN might not be as easy, as a full blown conventional war...!
