    I was going for a serious discussion. You were going for the laugh. Didn't work for either of us.

    I'm sorry I didn't mean to upset you ..... I was only trying to lighten up the conversation a little....

    I and others with my point of view, have explain ad nauseam in other words extensively, our positions about this Iran issue ..... it seems like we are going over and over the same things like squirrels in a cage.

    Higher fuel prices...military action in Iran...both of these things could impact Obama's chances for re-election. Maybe I'm just too suspicious, but something about this whole scenerio doesn't make sense.
    Indeed, fair lady. I am cautious and concerned that what we might be seeing is a whole lot of plausible deniability being establish prior to the fact. Long, long ago I stopped taking what my government, any government, said at face value.

    Johnny, put that quart of Old Times down and step slowly away from the bottle. The U.S. is not going to be invaded by the Iranian army. We are no more in danger of any attack now than we were a year ago, perhaps less so. There's nothing like telegraphing a punch. Well, maybe emailing one would be worse.

    I would be quite concerned if we had a Republican president. With Obama in the WH ... not so much.

Their country would not exist shortly after that. They know that. What would they gain?

    No matter, they have no nuclear option. So then you fear that if we don't attack them now they will attack us around the globe? If if we do attack them now they won't? How does that work?

    No, I'm sorry my friend what you are looking for is an excuse to attack Iran. Iran does not need an excuse to attack us as we have been screwing them constantly for a very long time. Nothing we do now can change the past. But perhaps by changing the present we can change the future.
    Holy Cripes... I do not beleive this!!!! I did not say this.....the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi said, "Iran has the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe."

    Again my post was a very simple answer to MagieD's question....

    I want to believe you are correct, Adam. I know if it were Bush or Romney or Gingrich or Insanitorium we'd already be waiting for retaliatory strikes from nations allied with Iran. Obama doesn't have a lot to work with as the Congress is hostile and the world is already on the skids.

    It's OK, take a couple of deep breaths. If you smoke, a cigarette and an adult beverage might be good right about now. In fact, I'm having a gin (Hendrick) and tonic while smoking BBQ dry rubbed chicken and sopping with Alabama Great White Sauce. I'd invite you over, but you being Irish and all, I probably don't have enough booze.

    But to the point, I did not say that you said that, "...the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi said, 'Iran has the capabilities to carry out military strikes on US interests around the globe.'"
