  1. I support war with all terrorists, including Iran, Pakistan and Cuba.

    But I do think that we need to focus our efforts on Iran, since its got WMDs.

    I think we need to run a war that is self-financing i.e. once we've won, we should take Iranian oil as payment. We should also claim compensation from Iranian oil reserves for any American soldiers injured or killed, something like $30 million per injury and $300 million per fatality. Allied forces should also be allowed to claim such compensation, maybe $1 million per fatality.
