    NCFY, you seem to believe that Islamic Radicals are reasonable in any fashion.. they ain't.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Doesn't ring the same as the Palestinian protests where children are wearing mock (I hope) suicide belts and carry missiles with the names of Israeli cities on them.

    I know. I was being a little sarcastic in that post.

China's entire current generation of leaders was raised during the Cultural Revolution- if we can get along with people that developed their views in a environment that insane why not with the Arab muslims?

    However Israel remains a potent symbol of the West's continued domination over the region. Their nuclear weapons are the most offensive.
    So, you would sacrifice the legitimate rights of the Israeli state in favor of letting the Arabs have their "stability" in their region? You know this would only encourage the Arabs to go for more, and more, and more until they are right on our doorsteps. You really are out of touch on this one.

    What would our reputation be if we told the nations of the Middle East that we supported a completely nuclear-free Middle East- including Israel.

    Instead of being seen as a pawn of a Jewish conspiracy by Arabs and a pawn of religious nuts by Europeans we'd be seen as a fair and balanced nation genuinely concerned with diplomacy and peace.
    I think those nuclear weapons are the only thing that has insured Israel's existence up until now.

    they have no legitimate rights, their nation was created as an inheritor of European imperialism.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Of course. Needed in this one, to be frank. The unwillingness of some to ignore the heart of this issue and the legitimate rights of Israel is really frustrating. They say Israel shouldn't do this or shouldn't do that, but don't offer up any viable alternative course of action.

    Really? Beating the crap out of the Arabs decisively, every time had nothing to do with it?

    This should be the plan: the US will retaliate against any Middle Eastern power which launches a nuclear weapon. Any Middle Eastern power.

    That way no one needs them.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And because of the transgressions of Europe, those people have no rights today? I don't think you even believe that argument.

    You sound like a certain Iranian nutcase.

    Have you ever heard of Article 51 of the UN CHarter? THAT is where their legitimate rights derive from in modern international law.
