FT.com / World - US debates military strikes on 'nuclear Iran'

This is a little scary. No matter which way you slice this, it's going to be bad. It's not like 20 years ago when Israel took out Iraq's reactor, and the world pretty much let them get away with it.

I will say this, referring to the last paragraph of the article,

But it adds that the absence of significant numbers of US stealth aircraft, early warning aircraft and other assets in the region indicate that the US is not actively considering air strike options at the moment.


the expert is not necessarily correct. The stealth bombers are capable of hitting anywhere from their base in the US. I believe, but am not sure, that there is at least one carrier battle group in the Persian Gulf at the moment, and that would be able to provide sufficient support aircraft for any mission. Let's not forget cruise missiles, either.

Eh, hopefully they'll just get another earthquake near the facilities, and then that would solve the problem for us!
