    The world is dealing with it, one Iranian nuclear scientist at a time.

    I wonder how many people criticizing this operation applauded Obama's actions ?
    Osama ordered the killing of thousands. How many people did this guy kill?

    And if nuclear scients are ok to be assasinated, does that mean another country doing the same to us is acceptable to you?

    Karma is a bitch. Hopefully you or someone you care about isn't killed in this way.

    Neither one, but it does make it harder for them because they have a limited supply of qualified scientists.

    Its not that simple. Not at all. This worker was not simply driving his car. This worker was actively trying to develop a tool to destroy the world for an unstable government. Would you feel better if war were declared against Iran and committed thousands of troops, and billions of dollars to stopping their nuclear program?
    He was building a nuclear weapon because his country asked him to. Not to destroy the world. He wasn't working for Dr. Evil.

    At the end of the day...we are supporting assasination and have lost any moral highground (if we had any left) to criticize other nations.

    Apparently American Exceptionalism has given way to American Real Politika.

    If I were an Iranian nuclear scientist, or anyone else working on their goal of obtaining a nuclear weapon, I would certainly be worried about it.

    Since I'm not, I have few worries that I'll end up blown up when I start my car, no matter how much you might wish it.

    This was not a act of terrorism.It is an assassination.He was not just some civilian, he was working on a nuclear program.

    Assassinate | Define Assassinate at Dictionary.com
    to kill suddenly or secretively, especially a politically prominent person; murder premeditatedly and treacherously
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    You can't equate the two.
