NO! Haven't you been reading the thread?! A blockade means bringing their industry to a halt indefinitely. You can't build suicide airplanes when you're being strangled for all the critical resources needed for your economy to function. So does that mean that we should just screw Iraq and start eradicating all of them to spare the lives of our soldiers over there? That's a much better solution than a drawn our invasion which steadily is killing our people. Using the A bombs and firebombing to kill civilians defies all the conventions of war I've ever known.
