"Rock &roll music has always been dance music. AC/DC is basically house. 'Got me under pressure' by ZZ Top is like fucking techno". "I think the line [between rock and dance music] was less blurry before the whole grunge thing. You can't play Pearl Jam in the nightclub and have people dance. You can't play 'Even Flow'."

"They couldn't hit an elephant at this dist---".
- General John Sedgwick
(General Sedgwick was a corps commander of the Army of the Potomac who enjoyed a reputation among his men as a good-humoured guy and relentless optimist. At the Battle of the Wilderness, while other mean were diving for cover from Confederate sharpshooters, Sedgwick scoffed at the danger, stood up, and caught a bullet in the face.)
Although the United States is perfectly capable of launching air strikes on Iran, such a scenario could have a very negative effect on U.S. interests. The negative outcomes that are part of this policy may outweigh the positives. The negative outcomes involved in an attack were outlined by PINR on March 2: "The U.S. military is overburdened by the ongoing insurgency in Iraq, making a realistic ground invasion of Iran improbable. While strategic air strikes are certainly an option, it is unlikely that such strikes would destroy completely Iran's nuclear research program. Furthermore, an actual attack on its facilities would probably hasten Iran's drive toward nuclear weapons, similar to the effect that Israel's 1981 strike on the Osirak reactor in Iraq had on Baghdad." There is also the very real concern that an attack on Iran would cause it to exercise its levers of power in neighboring Iraq, using its power brokers to increase instability.
In addition to the above strategic costs, there are also economic repercussions. The price of oil currently stands at US$68 a barrel, and any instability introduced to the Middle East will raise this price substantially. The economies in oil dependent countries are already suffering from sustained high oil prices, and as the price of oil moves higher it will cause further damage to these economies. Even without an attack, any sanctions placed on Iran that include its energy industry will also cause an escalation of oil prices.
