    Exaclty - doenst Obama understand who is in charge

    Obama better watch it - he may lose funding for his campaign or the banks may take a run on the stock market, or God Forbid, the US media may start being very nasty to him.

    I just dont understand how Obama can think he is in charge of what the USA stands for internationally.

    Disgreaceful isnt it

    Now people can make their own judgements as to what they are up to. What we do know is that just down the road there is the state of Israel which hasnt signed the NNP, refuse entry to any inspections whatsoever of any of its military sites in Israel and neither confirms or denies the possession of nuclear weapons. And as everybody in the world knows, Israel has at least 220 nuclera warheads within its borders - almost all manufactured and desgined in the USA.

    So if you were living in Iran and constantly hearing the War drums being belted by Israel and its partner the USA, what would you do?

    This is why I prefer that the IRanian regime stop its nuclera program and remove any pretext of an attack. But I suspect that the Israel/US pact will find another reason to demonise nations that put their own national interests before western imperialist corporate profits.

    We saw what happend to Gadaffi who would come under the GLobalist Banking regime and wanted to unify Africa under one currency.
    Iran hasn't been cooperative with the IAEA. I linked to the IAEA's report earlier in the thread. It saw no nuclear weapons programs, but it was not allowed in certain facilities. Most people assume that those unknown facilities are where weapons programs are.

    I agree with you about Iran being surrounded by Israel, American allies and the recently invaded Iraq though. What most people don't do is put themselves in Iran's position. Instead, they just think about Israel and the US. Iran has perfectly rational reasons for wanting nuclear weapons that have absolutely nothing to do with wanting to destroy Israel.

    Libs don't understand that overtaking the Iranian army will be a cakewalk.

    What are those reasons? We only take actions (and they are always sanctions) against Iran when they are being like petulant children, and our sanctions are not even really that tough, since some other countries refuse to participate.

    No one else is saying Iran shouldn't exist. Israel is the country that is TRULY threatened in that region. Look at the size of Israel, and look at the size of the nations surrounding it, and how hostile they are towards Israel.

    I notice it doing the same thing from time to time. Just check your post before you submit the message, to make sure the quotes are right. I've been noticing for the past couple of days, that certain phrases in my text will duplicate, so I just edit my posts when needed. No idea what the problem is.

    I've noticed it too, and when I try to refresh the page I'm on, it takes a long time.

    If the Iranian regime gets nukes, it will lock the country down and close the windows like North Korea. We cannot allow that to happen to millions of our brothers and sisters, for generations. Even if we do not have the global political will to end Iran's (and Syria's, and Lebanon's and Palestine's) suffering beneath horrible tyranny, we must not allow another nK.
