    There is a news, on another thread, that possibly Bolton is on exit route.

    Not buying into any propaganda but stating the obvious. To wage war on Iran USA just cannot win with an aerial campaign but ground intervention is needed. Now Iran also has costal batteries with long enough range to keep ships away from shore. Apart from that USA is weak in Afghanistan and it is obvious Iran will open another front for USA. Then there will be diversion in Syria and Iraq as well.

    If USA really wants to go to war with Iran USA needs to pull out from Afghanistan or USA will lose this war. It will turn from attacking Iran into defending Afghanistan for USA very quickly.

    Wishful thinking on your part. Iran is in no position to open another front for US in Afghanistan.

    Tomahawk cruise missiles will take good care of Iranian coastal defenses. Seriously dude, you are a juvenile in assessing conventional engagements.

    We cannot bear the pressures of another war - very simple. Pakistani FM have conveyed Pakistani position in press.

    US have too much stamina and resources for war-fighting; Pakistan cannot keep up with this nonsense. Fencing the border, is of utmost importance now.

    My friend you are acting like a child. Taliban will fight for their own Homeland and freedom and Iran will support them with weapons and safe heavens and Kabul will fall. USA will suffer. This is the obvious war which is coming. The worst position would be for India in Afghanistan. Pakistan will eat tacos and watch shit unfold

    USA wants Iran to fight war south towards Saudis. Iran wants to fight wat north towards Afghanistan.

    Do you think US gives a damn about kabul, they have already decided to leave that sh1thole, that is why they are negotiating a final deal with all parties in that sh1thole called afghanistan.

    One aspects was missed out. The consquences of this attack can be heavy on Israel. If Iran realized that it will go down, i am sure it will cause destruction to Israel and economic losses to countries who are involved in supporting US.

    But then again, this might be the only way to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons till its too big of a price to pay.

    My friend I am not thinking wishfully but telling you reality Iran US war will result in Taliban getting back kabul. Why would Iran take war south instead of north? Give me one good reason for Iran not supporting Taliban?

    No, you are being a juvenile in your view of things. Should US strike at Iran in force and bring about collapse of its regime, how would Iranian leftovers in the position to help Taliban in Afghanistan? Rather Taliban will be under intense pressure to negotiate an endgame with US.

    US is weak in Afghanistan because it does not have direct access to its lands from any angle. By setting fire to Iran, US will have proper access to Afghanistan.
