    It got lost somewhere in registering the ignorance level of the statement. Just trying to check.

    It seemed like bait. Now that you're saying it again I'm sure it is.

    The acceptable way for Iran to handle it is - death by drone. And then claim it as an accident, again...and again...and again. This way is apparently not barbaric. High tech killing is the honorable way. Plus, you can always say, "Oops, sorry. We didn't mean to, but what the hell. It wasn't on purpose. We'll be more care when we kill people with drones in the future."

    No Israel will just kill some scientists in their homes or cars or at work. No biggie.

    What the hell business is it of anyone outside Iran? It's their culture and if you don't like it, too damn bad. Y'all should quit sticking your noses where they don't not belong.

    If I remember my history correctly, no one gave a damn until Germany started wars outside it's borders.

    If Germany had not invaded other countries, they could still be killing Jews.

    Israel's in a tough spot. There are no easy answers. Does Israel just sit back and allow Iran, whose president has already said Israel is a "cancer" that should be eradicated, to develop a weapon of mass destruction if it threatens their very existance? I don't see how they can.

    Honestly. I don't want us to go to war with Iran...but something must be done. They are the real cancer. They are dangerous, isolating themselves from the world, they have fundamentalist whackos in charge who want to disrupt "peace," and they are pursuing nuclear weapons. Let's add in the fact that they aren't far from Israel.

    This incident with the pastor is just wrong. It is a clear example that Iran has no concern for human rights. It may "not be our buisness" right now, but it "wasn't our buisness" when Hitler pursued the increasing size of the German military, provided weapons to the Spanish, annexed Austria, etc. Does anyone understand that history is cyclical? Or is it just me? I have 10 books ranging from the early 18th century to present day. Each one has plenty of examples of what happens when a country says it isn't my buisness. Plenty of examples of what happens when "weapons of mass destruction" by whackos with "fundamentalist" ideas about expansion and invasion and fundamentalist justifications.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
