    My concern has always been the reverse. Which would surely drag us in.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I criticise an Obama appointee and you call me a left winger. Come on NP. I listened to her, she provided zero evidence for her claims. Another senior WH official says they've been building a case and its a home run, he too offered no evidence. I recall when Saddam's WMD was a slam dunk. Don't believe what Washington says, demand evidence.

    The extension was predicated on the most recent, positive AIEA report. This move makes complete sense. Besides the whole notion that we need to fear Iran nuking us, should they succeed in this is silly anyway. But it's hard to continually justify our bloated pentagon budget if there aren't threats to our national security lurking about the world.

    Ignore the recent AIEA report and run with the fear mongering.

    Morning Thom, I see your up with the chickens. I'm not sure I understand your question. But, John McCain wanted to "bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran years ago. Obama, actually the P-5+1 talks has deferred war this entire time.

    Maybe you haven't had the joyful experience of the resulting situation after attempting negotiation with a belligerent teenager.

    Yeah, you can compare Iran with a belligerent teenager, but that description fit the Bush administration far better.

    You used the word 'defer' .. meaning to delay; just now as an afterthought... maybe it was a typo...

    I 'm just checking to see if you suggest a wait and see attitude (deter) and if so under what circumstances your thoughts might change.

    Then, again, maybe it's a typo (deter?)

    Always read the reports. But they aren't enough as far as I am informed. You would want free roaming inspectors on the ground continuously and permanently. Anything less is too little. It might be understandable, if Iran had technology that could be stolen like in the Cold War, that they should refuse. As it is though, the only unemotional explanation for the secrecy is that they have something to hide.

Unlike the DPK, Iran's religious leaders have not only the will but the capability of using them against the "Great Satan" and our allies, as well as against other enemies such as ISIS which although I wouldn't shed a tear for ISIS, it would destabilize the region to the point that the total world economy would collapse - not to mention that a freaking nuclear weapon would have been used.
    Hi Beau. I have to take issue with the notion that Iran would ever use a nuke in their own region or abroad. That would not perpetuate themselves or advance their goals whatsoever. This is similar to the fevered pitch in 2003 when Americans were frightened with the notion that if we didn't act NOW, we would see mushroom clouds over a US city. So far the world has only seen that twice.
