Jen, not sure what you mean by “only go to war when you have to”.

But please reconsider Hagel. Without sanctions or the threat of an armed response, I see nothing to stop the Iranian nuclear program. While Iran may not have the missile technology capable of reaching the US directly, Iran is a major sponsor of global terrorism. And a terrorist armed with conventional explosive and containing radioactive materials (dirty bomb) could pose quite a threat to any urban area. In addition, Iran has threatened to use nuclear weapons against Israel. And if a bomb is developed, Iran does have the missile capability to deliver it there.

I hope your confidence in the benign intent of the Iranians is valid. But I’m doubtful. I’d be more so if I lived in Israel.

(Give me your best shot. I do love to argue!)
