Check out what FOX Fans are saying:

"I would offer the American public and the world real proof, beyond a shadow of a doubt (i.e. no Powell) that Iran is supporting terrorism. I would then let the world know how I plan to offer Iran a week's warning (to the government and their citizens) before severe action occured. I would take out their nuclear plants. I would bomb their miltary hubs and their factories. I would make Iraq look like paradise compared to what we would do to them." — Cheri (Shelby, NC)

"What can be done really? This current president has yet to act tough on them, or the Saudis for that matter. We have sqaundered American lives and resources when we should have dealt with Iran initially. We cannot fight a war with Iran and expect it to be easy. Bush has stretched our military far too thin as it is. Simply taking out strategic sites in Iran will do nothing. I have no idea what I would do as president. I would, as a start, bring our men and women home from Iraq. And hold Bush legally accountable for misleading the American people." — Janie (Brookline, MA)

"As president, I would completely pull out of the Middle East. I mean pull out and cut ties with Israel, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. I would start solving the major problems here at home." — Keri (Chicago, IL)

"I would try to commicate with the more moderate Iranians who truly want a free market and society. I would plead with them to stand up against there oppressive leaders and join us in our fight. I would, unlike Bush, have an exit strategy. I would make sure that no one like Rumsfeld was leading the military. I would offer Iran and its citizens a warning and then bomb their military and nuclear facilities off the face of the Earth." — Earl (Grover, SC)

"If I were president, I would make the world understand that there can be no diplomatic way to turn Iran around. I would simply teach Iran a hard lesson with the might of the U.S. military." — Dex (Houston, TX)

"As president, I would swiftly resolve this issue with a single weapon of mass destuction. I would offer no warning. I would use it as a warning to all nations who support terrorism." — Dex (Tulsa, OK)

"I would clearly explain to my fellow citizens our mistakes in that region. I would also say that like it or not we must act decisively and quickly to rid ourselves of this threat. I would be honest about how horrible the Bush administration has done. I would be honest about how our thirst for oil has corrupted our interests there. I would also be honest about how America, England, France and many other countries have been the root cause of the mess in the Mideast. I would apologize to those who live there, but also say that it's too late and things must be resolved once and for all. And then I would resolve it with a force not seen anywhere on this planet before." — Jake (Camden, ME)

"I think the U.S. needs to continue to do what the Bush administration has been doing and that is to act with our closest allies. We must put as much pressure as possible on the United Nations, however the fact of the matter is, too many countries have no interest in supporting any meaningful resolutions against Iran due to self interest. We must destroy their nuclear facilities, their military capability, continue to enforce any sanctions against them and impose new"Martin (North Lauderdale, FL)

"If I were president - finally set an energy plan that would stop/reduce the money the US is putting into the hands of terrorists. The plan would include a guaranteed base of 2.50 - 3.00 for all American produced ethanol. Increase fuel taxes to pay for additional research and development for alternate fuels. Initiate a "Manhattan Project" to determine flush with billions of dollars to develop an alternate to the gasoline internal combustion engine. The lack of money going to Arab countries would dry up the availably of those governments (mainly Iran and Saudi a Arabia) capability to supply funds to sponsor terrorist." Joe

"Iran is the major threat to peace and safety in the world today. I would take them out with a blockade including all entrances and egress by bombing all their roads and ports. I would take their oil off the world market and they would be allowed to sit and stew until they came to their senses and overthrew the Islamic fascists running the place. I would not care what the rest of the world thought or said. This needs to be done before they are capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to Israel or the U.S." —Michael (Tulsa, OK)

"Stop thinking that I must be the one to stop the wars of the middle east. Stop spending billions on ideology. Stop going on vacation. Stop thinking every country with a problem is a prime candidate for U.S. colonization." — Mike (Fort Worth)

"We should be doing is giving support to those in Iran that oppose the current regime. Its time for a change." — Sam (Gainesville, FL)

"Unite all the civilized countries of the world. Get all to admit a peaceful world where countries compete and engage in economic and cultural exchange, which is far more productive and rewarding than killing millions for religious or political reasons. Then, give North Korea, Iran, Iraq, and Syria an ultimatum: join a civilized world or face consequences!" — Bob
