    that's an oxymoronic statement.

    I know you are not talking about my approach.

    I am quite a far ways away from appeasement. I believe in firm containment, with ever stricter sanctions. That is not appeasement at all.

    And I am not opposed to force even, simply as a last resort in response to hostile actions of their own.

    That last resort needs to take place before they have a weapon to use, on anyone.

    I see no difference, if it seemed America would do nothing Iran would move against it's neighbors.

    Azerbaijan? Turkey? Iran? Pakistan? Afghanistan? Turkmenistan?

    Exactly which of these would they be moving against?
