    It seems we both agree that the Iranian leadership is almost child-like in their ignorance if they believe that this was anything but a joke, and not US policy. This is why children, or Iranians, should not be allowed to play with matches, much less nuclear weapon capability.

    Please don't bring Jesus into this discussion. Thank you.

    McCain made an ill-advised joke. Period. Here's the history of this particular parody, which first aired on the radio in 1979: Bomb Iran - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not going to happen, and why should Iran agree to anything? Obama keeps sending them billions just to keep them at the negotiating table.

    Really? Sure sounds like trust to me.

    "As I have said many times before, I believe that our countries should be able to resolve this issue peacefully, with diplomacy," Obama said. "Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon.

    On Sept. 25, 2009, the Obama White House sponsored a background briefing by "senior administration officials" who said that Iran had been discovered covertly building uranium enrichment facilities twice. One was at Natanz, another near Qom.

    A "senior (Obama) administration official" explained at that time why it was logical to conclude that the second secret facility was designed to produce enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon not for peaceful purposes.

    Ayatollah Khamenei, who as Iran's supreme leader is commander in chief of the Iranian military, gave a speech on Feb. 8 to the commanders of the Iranian Air Force. In this speech, the ayatollah boasted about Iran's technical accomplishment in enriching uranium to the 20-percent level--which is beyond what is needed for peaceful power production.

    During the speech in which he boasted about Iran's enrichment of uranium to the 20-percent level, according to a BBC transcript, the ayatollah's air force commanders chanted: "Allah Akbar. Khamenei is the leader. Death to the enemies of the leadership. Death to America. Death to England. Death to hypocrites. Death to Israel."
    Liberals don't believe Ayatolla when he stated "Death to America," but can't wait for a nuclear deal with him.

    You just can't make this stuff up.

    Don't you just love the entertainment value here? Just another example of a liberal paradox: repeated by many, presumed by few.
