On Monday's Hardball Chris Matthews talked with Jim Walsh from MIT and Joshua Muravchik from the American Enterprise Institute to discuss Iran and whether or not the U.S. should attack.

Walsh: "...It would be extremely costly. I mean, if you liked the war in Iraq, you would love the war in Iran. Whether it's battlefield deaths in Afghanistan or Iraq, because you know, Iran's not gonna just going to sit there and take it; they're going to come back after us.
