Dear Mr. President,
In case you didn't notice, this whole Iranian embassy plot might throw us into... oh, I don't know... something small along the lines of WORLD WAR THREE!!! This is one scary situation. A war with Iran? Now? Holy crap! This isn't good. We have the nuclear capacity to destroy the world 5 times over... and than another just for kicks. Do you honestly believe any of the threats are bluffs? A direct military response is the absolute worst situation. Do you remember what they tell you in health class? They tell you to use a condom before you stick it in. It's the same thing with this, but I'm pretty sure we don't have any condoms.
None of us want to see another 9/11, or another long campaign. As for a matter of fact, that's part of why we elected you. The last thing we need is a little multi-billion dollar adventure in the middle east. None of us want to mess with Russia, or China, or any other nation tied to Iran. Even if we win, we wouldn't; whoever won would be whoever lost the least. I can't imagine the horror of Tehran in ruins. Anarchy on that magnitude is unimaginable to me, or perhaps I just don't want to try.
You need to do something, and we understand that. Such a plot is inexcusable. Iran needs to pay. However, you must do what most people do when they don't have condoms: pull out before it gets messy.
Nobody wants more flag coffins. We've lost enough of our children, thank you very much. Look, If it makes you feel any better, I think Iran deserves to lose. I just don't think the innocent civilians do. I don't think Israel really does either. If Israel loses, it's citizens become instant targets of terror. The last thing I want to see before I die is my lover, who will be much more beautiful than a big mother F@&*ing mushroom cloud.
It's not like in chess, where having nothing left in the end but a queen and a king is considered victory. Your pawns are living people with real people who really care. Every trade you make kills one of our sons. Be careful.
