    Re: Iran criticizes Obama, calls on U.S. to scrap nuclear arms

    ..U.S. President Barack Obama for saying Tehran posed a threat with its nuclear program and urged Washington and other countries possessing atom weapons to dismantle their arsenals.
    Is it just me, or is there something horribly backwards here?

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I think you are misreading the quote. It would be more like Iran saying "Hey, you think we have guns, but you all need to get rid of your guns.".

    Read what your quoted below with my added '[IRAN]'.

    Iran criticized, on Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama for saying Tehran posed a threat with its nuclear program and [IRAN] urged Washington and other countries possessing atom weapons to dismantle their arsenals.

    Well that at least makes sense(that Iran would say that, not that we would entertain the idea of dismantling them).

    Typical Iranian idiocy. They are trying to make nukes and working very hard to hide their complete and total dishonesty.

    Man, I think the general atmosphere of this thread is just plain insane. Mosre of why we as American REALLY need to change our own worldview.

    Let me see if I get this straight... for decades we have been going to countries with nuclear arms and suggested they disarm themselves.... that fine right. But the minute someone else follows our lead and does the same thing they are insane?

    Don't get me wrong... there is no way we would disarm ourselves in the current political state of affairs in the world nor will we be able to for a good long time to come. But so far this is the first rational thing Iran has suggested in a long time.... Disarmament of nuclear weapons.... c'mon everyone would agree that could it actually become reality we would all be better off.

    Oh and first off to all of you that don't think that WE, THE UNITED STATES aren't the main impetus for nations to develop nuclear arms.... ESPECIALLY in light of the BUSH DOCTRINE and the policy of striking first to protect our nation interests. What a self absorbed people we have become.

    It's not the "Bush doctrine." Offensive defense is as old as mankind. The US, Russia, and China absolutely NEED nuclear weapons due to the events of history. Iran and NK do not need nuclear weapons. Nobody's going to nuke Iran or NK unless they nuke us first.
