"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Ah, so now I'm an American. Right.But Iran is a democracy, not matter how much Americans want to keep denying that.
You shouldn't ASSume.
Anyways, back on topic; has anyone found a source for this quote in the AP article? I haven't been able to find anything, and would tend not to believe it, especially considering the fact that the only part that is quoted is "not feasible".

And I see you're still blaming the victim here. Why is Israel to be condemned because she can more effectively defend herself? The proportionality nonsense is just that...nonsense.
Israel's strategy is and has been a response, a reactive strategy. Peace cannot be achieved in the ME because Israel's neighbors, possibly except for Egypt, don't accept Israel's right to exist.
Maybe you don't, either?
