    See Rocket, criticising any US crimes is to be an anti-American. It's not possible that you may just like to see the crimes end.

    I agree. But given the tensions between nations in the area, especially from Shia vs Sunni conflicts, I really doubt that Iran would pass up the chance to build powerful weapons. Even if their intent is mere deterrence, nuclear weapons are a very attractive thing for a country to have. I do not think that they will use them, and I'm sure that they truly don't want to, but I doubt that they will refrain of obtaining that security.

    Keep in mind, I see no reason why Iran with nuclear weapons is a bad thing. It's no worse than Pakistan with them. Certainly not worse than North Korea with them. I think the devastation in 1945 and the fear of global annihilation during the Cold War has taught everyone the consequences of using nuclear weapons. I do not think that any nation would start a nuclear war. It is an act of suicide, not only of oneself, but of one's family, friends, and people. Whoever fires the first nuke may be completely wiped from the map by everyone else. If Kim Jong Il wasn't crazy enough to do that, no one is.

    I would completely agree with you on that. I have always stated and still believe that either everybody has them or nobody has them and preferably, nobody has them. The world has taken the step to destroy all chemical weapons so lets make that step too, so that Einstein's prediction on WW4 don't come true.

    Yes, maybe it was another Bill Clinton joke though the addition of children is a novel twist.
    So, say whatever about Michigan, but leave the red states alone?
    You obviously didn't read the link and how they were including Rigoberta Menchú as part of the curriculum in order to demonstrate 'diversity' to sheltered Americans. That's what was 'pathetic'.

    A very significant percentage of Muslims living in the middle east and south Asia ARE inbred, though. Since this is not true for those living in Arkansas, this is a false comparison. In Iran, for instance, the consanguinity rate is just below 40%. In Pakistan and most of the Arab world it is higher.

    Do you REALLY think that 40 % of marriages in Arkansas are to family members?

    False equivalence.

    Why do you want the Iranian regime to have nukes?

    Perhaps Rocket88 has the stats for Arkansas.
