They Lied about Iraq… They’re Lying about Iran…. 2012. Photograph. Mystic Politics. 8 Mar. 2012. Web. 15 Oct. 2012. <http://mysticpolitics.wordpress.com/2012/03/08/image-they-lied-about-iraq-theyre-lying-about-iran/>. Bibliography Iran proven to be enriching large quantities of Uranium 235 to weapon grade(Amano) Threat is being hyped up by Israel
Last three years, Israel has used possible threat to drastically increase defense spending, and increase nationalism (Filut)
Analysts have said it will take Iran three or more years to produce a nuclear weapon (Beamon, Walter)
Chance of a preemptive strike on Israel or US is "close to zero"
Much easier to start a war than to finish it
Iraq: Millions of dollars in military spending, and millions still required for aid, which isn't doing much (Cordesman) The threat is not pertinent
enough to justify any
military involvement. Iran is different from North Korea and Cuba (Newton-Small)International relations have changed
Sanctions are working in completely different ways
Sanctions in place have crippled economy
People revolt in bad economy
Would lead to overthrow of the Ahmadinejad regime
Can prevent nuclear war without American lives lost The current data supports that the threat is pertinent enough to
justify immediate military action. No. Here's why: The U.S. is already $16 trillion in debt
War with Iran would cost $200-$300 billion
Increase in oil and gas prices
Israel's economy would collapse and the shekel would lose its value
Israel would depend on foreign
currency Our economy could not support a war with Iran. Economic sanctions will work, therefore negating any reason to go to war. Negative Impacts on the Economy: Reports coming from US, UN, and European Union(Amano) North Korean sanctions have not stifled their drive(Ahn) Analysts project Iran will not have nuclear capability for three years at least(Beamon, Walter) Why wait to address this? Iran is totalitarian
Government won't listen to people
Cuban and North Korean sanctions didn't work
No reason Iranian sanctions will
Enforcing economic sanctions is a passive aggressive move that ultimately does nothing
Many more people will die in a nuclear war Israel must be "wiped off" the map
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Iran)
Could cause a nuclear arms race
Create instability in Middle East (Pickering) Economic sanctions will not work, justifying military involvement. Length of Involvement: The cost of military action is inconsequential compared to the instability a nuclear armed Iran would cause.
