Hypothetical: What do you think the US response should be if...

... definitive proof was discovered that Iran was behind the 9/11 attacks?

Would it make a difference whether the 9/11 idea came from Tehran first or if it was bin Laden's but the Iranians helped facilitate it?

Assuming definitive evidence that our allies confirm as well, then it would seem to me that Congress would easily term it an act of war. It would make a difference depending on what type of support I would imagine. The Soviet Union and China both provided support to efforts that killed US citizens, but we didn't invade or declare war on those nations.

It would certainly be a sour pill for Americans to swallow after 10 years of misdirected engagements. It would certainly open up a lot of questions for the intelligence community to answer.

Even if they were behind it, we're in a position right now where the economy has been run into the ground with no hope of recovery soon, the anti war candidate has us fighting 3 wars instead of two... And this regime is not even basically competent on foreign policy.

I would hope that we'd be smart enough to realize that sometimes even when you would be justified, to fight is not always the right answer. We are too overextended right now given that we are being spent into financial ruin.

Whether you let the proof leak out or not I don't know, but... We can't do anything at this point.

What do you think the US response should be if...

space aliens from another galaxy flew down to South America and started blasting Brazilians with laser beams?

I can't speak for the US government, but personally I welcome our new galactic overlords.

Especially if they have some cool telescope toys with them.

I would wonder if it came from the same intelligence that led to the Iraq war.

Take over Brazils oil business and send the aliens to Iran.

That would be an interesting way to get the boys in there and to get the American people behind them. Because eveyone can see that soon we will be blowing shit up over there as well because, hell, "it's what we do."

Pat, why are you getting the nancys all worked up? Some of these guys are fundamentally damaged and broken by the past 10 years. It's best to just let them blame Bush and that Bill Kristol guy and be done with it.

It wouldn't matter what the source was because according to the hypothetical, you're convinced that it's definitive.
