    I think when somebody is singing a line from a well-known parody, it should probably be considered a joke.

    You on the right need to tear yourselves away from Fox News and get out of the house more often.
    Take your head out of the ME sand and try your liberal sources, CNN and ABC.

    I dont think McCain was joking either when he said that.
    North Korea and Iran are two different nations, it's not double standards to say that one is this and that and the other is that and this.
    That being said North Korean threats should not be ignored.

    McCain is not the American president, and he was joking because he was singing a bloody song, and he was not saying "death to Iran" he was saying "bomb Iran"; referring to the belief that there needs to be a military strike targeting Iran's nuclear weapons since Iran threatens other nations on the planet with annihilation, not referring to the belief that Iran must be annihilated - so it's different. Thank you for participating and have a good day.

    It didn't happen if liberals say it didn't happen. Their reality...

    Forget about the multiple news sources throughout the years that show it in print and on video.



    Denial is no longer a river in Egypt. Apparently it also runs through Iran.

    A threat is a threat- whether its chanting death to a country or to bomb them its all the same- so for one to be somehow ignored because its just a bombing campaign instead of supposedly annihilating a country (which is impossible these days) is silly. Im sure you and the other warmongers would be equally upset if Iran just said to bomb Isreal/America but would still ignore our politicians when they say it.

    Bomb Iran is a well known parody? First time I heard of it.

    And you still didnt answer the question as to why we ought to treat North Korea differently then Iran.

    But Israel/America have not made threats to annihilate Iran, and certainly not have made such threats before Iran did, so there's your difference. I'm sure you and the other pro-radical-Islamists would be equally upset if America/Israel had just out of the blue decided to call for the annihilation of another state.

    Regardless saying "bomb Iran" is insisting that the solution to the Iranian issue is to bomb their nuclear facilities. It's just a different approach to an existing problem and nothing beyond that as you desperately attempt to portray. I will remind you that no one in the free world has removed the military option from the table, not in the left and not in the right.

    EMPTY RHETORIC


    Why is it that the same people who don’t believe one thing America’s President says claim to know the innermost sentiments of an Iranian Ayatollah about whom they know little, or nothing from a country to which they’ve never been been based on a few words of public bellicosity?

    For decades, Iranian clerics have chanted “Death to America / Israel / Britain” but have done nothing. Why politicians or Religious leaders say things they don’t mean is a timeless question that differs from culture to culture.

    A more accurate gauge of Iran’s future intentions is its history; the fact that it has attacked no one in 300 years. While every player in the Region supports a “Terrorist” group of some sort, opponents of Iran cite its support of Hezbollah as a reason to deny Iran a nuclear program.

    Hezbollah, however is only considered a “Terrorist group”, today by 3 countries: Israel, Canada & the Gulf Co-operation Council.
    Hezbollah is more widely noted by its beneficiaries for its political, defensive, humanitarian & rebuilding efforts in S. Lebanon after destructive Israeli invasions.

    Another far more accurate way to fathom the genuine sentiments of Iran’s Religious Leaders toward ongoing nuclear talks is in reviewing his private actions & expressions which are diametrically opposed opposed to what has proven to be meaningless public rhetoric.

    Iran’s Religious Leader is reportedly supportive of the talks according to the N.Y. Times:

    “Iran’s Hard-Liners Show Restraint on Nuclear Talks With U.S.”
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/24/wo...alks.html?_r=0
    EXCERPT “Ayatollah Khamenei has largely supported the nuclear talks and the Iranian negotiators, whom he has called “good and caring people, who work for the country.””CONTINUED.

    It is of monumental importance that these nuclear negotiations succeed in arriving at an equitable resolution as the naively espoused “Military Option” is bound to result in a horrific cataclysm beyond anyone’s imagination.



    Thanks

    Bombing a country means killing people. American officials outright call for killing Iranians. How is this ANY different than hardliners in Iran saying death to America?
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    There is nothing clear about that. A "state of the union" sort of meeting is being held in a Mosque and some people in the crowd get wound up, and the speaker / politician sympathizes with their emotions. It happens all the time. Your source is partisan hacksmenship and is designed to stir up unneeded emotions. I've used credible journalism to refute your junk OP and show what what was really going on.
