    True, O wants Iran to actually get nukes, even though he claims otherwise. That was his aim all along--we know, everyone w/noodle knows it, so what's the problem?

    What's such a big deal if Iran has nukes? Explain.

    Let's help them!

    And while we're at it, lets give nuke to ISIS and whoever wants one.


    "More nukes for the world" the new American foreign policy. YOu realize of course my country has completely severed all diplomatic ties with Iran? We are in a state of semi war. Go ahead, help our enemies

    Sorry, us taxpayers paid for US nukes, and we don't want to give them away. Doing so would compromise the balance of power in the ME.

    OTOH, every sovereign nation WILL develop its own weapons for its own defense, and that's what Iran's nukes are for, so it's no big deal.

    There's no way Iran could initiate a war w/another nation w/its nukes or give them to someone who would because it would lead to retaliation leading to Iran's destruction. Therefore, those nukes could only be used for self-defense.

    The Iranians (and much of the Middle East in general) is used to being able to say what others want to hear in English to foreign audiences, and then another thing entirely in Arabic or Farsi to local audiences, without it being too problematic for them. Teh Interwebz is changing the game on them, but many are slow to catch up.

    ...with a big hole in the middle like a doughnut. I'm thinking it's a long, dark hole. However, take heart - we're dispatching a carrier and a missile cruiser to Yemen, which has absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the nuclear talks with Iran whatsoever. None. As long as we get a piece of paper with the headliner "Good Nuclear Deal", Obama can claim success and seal his legacy, as well as the fate of a non-nuclear ME. Well done.

    Yeah Chainsaw has a thread up on it.....BO has sent in the Teddy Roosevelt. We already had 9 other ships in the region. Cruiser and Destroyers. BO is definitely flexing to the Iranians as they were sent to make sure Iran doesn't try to arm the Houthi. BO wanted that known.

    I guess Obama doesn't like the Iranian leadership and generals laughing at him. I honestly hope Obama puts enough stuff in there that they won't try anything, but just because we have a lot of power there doesn't mean they won't. Obama has proven to be, well, indecisive in the face of such confrontations in the past. Sometimes pushing a little button eliminates the necessity of pushing the big one. Besides, we have a lot of carriers sitting in their berths at Newport News in the James not doing much of anything.

    No, I caught it, so you were offering nothing but your own opinion, IOW, talking ****.

    He might be catching on that Iranians have been smacktalkin him. You know how he wont like that. Just took some time to filter thru the grey matter. Must have been the Farsi that was throwing him off. You know how sometimes words can have two meanings.

    yes, talking sense
    however, i do recognize that is a foreign concept to you

    just as our neocons in the senate sent a letter to the iranian government undermining Obama's efforts to impede iran's efforts to develop nuclear armaments
    a senior iranian general voiced his opposition to the pending agreement in his own attempt to undermine any agreement which would thwart his military's opportunity to join the nuclear weapons club
