Iran leadership doesn’t understand the words “nice” or “compassion,” they never have. Sadly, the thing they do understand is Strength and Power, and the USA is by far the most powerful Military Force in the world, with 1.5 Trillion Dollars invested over the last two years alone..

....The wonderful Iranian people are suffering, and for no reason at all. Their leadership spends all of its money on Terror, and little on anything else. The U.S. has not forgotten Iran’s use of IED’s & EFP’s (bombs), which killed 2000 Americans, and wounded many more...

....Iran’s very ignorant and insulting statement, put out today, only shows that they do not understand reality. Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force. In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!

6. Actually that is precisely the reason we dont

The US has the absolute power to "win" any and all the wars we have been in since and including Vietnam.

The "problem" is that nothing would be left over. Just a smoking hole in the country we attacked. Thankfully to date, no President has fully utilized all the United States military power. It will be a terrible day if that ever comes.

2. Well, yeah, we spend enough to make that happen.

The US spends more on military than the next seven or eight nations combined.

4. I believe it is closer to the next 40 or 50 combined...

and many of those 40 or 50 are generally considered allies (France, GB, etc).

5. The next 7 or 8 add up to

about $610 billion, and ours is $650, roughly. I'd guess maybe another 5 or so nations.

3. we've had the most powerful military for decades

sure, the Soviets may have had more nukes in the 70s, but in terms of overall power, has anybody come close to the US since World War 2?

7. Soviet ground forces dwarfed ours coming out of WW2.

It's unlikely we ever even came close on the ground. That's why our nuclear deterrent was essential to the security of the West throughout the Cold War. If not for the atomic bomb, Stalin would have overrun all of Europe, not just the East.
