Is Time Running Out?

For years, the United States supported both Iran and Iraq simultaneously and in different ways. The purpose for doing so, was to keep a balance between these two countries so that neither one would get a strong upper hand on the other. We wanted a balance between these two warring countries, so one would not invade and take over the other.

Now that we have torn down Iraq, they are not in any position to defend themselves against an Iran invasion and they won'’t be for quite some time. The global community has no appetite for a prolonged U.S. presence in Iraq, nor does Iraq, nor do we.

With Iran'’s hot pursuit of nuclear weapons, and their hate for the West, and being mindful of their threats, we have to be keenly aware of the problems before us. Diplomacy is not going to quell their hatred for us, will not suppress their nuclear desires, nor squelch their desires for a global caliphate.

Taking all this into consideration, what we have here is a country (Iran) that is a threat to us, and a country (Iraq) that cannot adequately defend itself, and if we are not going to be staying there for an extended period of time, there seems to be only one solution to keep Iraq from being overrun by Iran.

So when do we attack?
