    Yeah, Micheal Jackson having the discourtesy of dying while a major international crisis is coming to a head should be covered like this:

    "Parents of little boys all around the world can be relieved that Michael Jackson died of a heart attack in Los Angeles today. Tune to some other station for further details, this station is moving to cover reports of the Iranian government cracking down violently on protesters."

    You still never really answered the question you were asked. Based on this statement I quoted, if you don't clarify your position with the given scenario, I will have to assume you would rather do nothing substantial if in fact these people have been hacked with axes. Cowboy diplomacy migth be over, but it appears bull**** diplomacy is on the rise.

    Be careful what you wish for. An Iranian revolution may be worse for US interests rather than better.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

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

    Iran-Contra involved countless administration officials, military personnel, and large amounts of munitions including missiles. How can you suggest Reagan had nothing to do with it? Are you conceding that Reagan was so detached from reality that this size operation could go on without him knowing about it?

    "A few months ago I told the American people I did not trade arms for hostages. My heart and my best intentions still tell me that's true, but the facts and the evidence tell me it is not. As the Tower board reported, what began as a strategic opening to Iran deteriorated, in its implementation, into trading arms for hostages. This runs counter to my own beliefs, to administration policy, and to the original strategy we had in mind"

    I don't have a short list of responses the way you seem to. I have no intention of formulating a response to a hypothetical situation.

    Yes it is but if this massacre is confirmed, we can put that rule aside for a moment and burn these ****ing clerics alive.

    I volunteer to do the shooting or burning.

    Hmm, puts illegalization of weapons in a whole new arena now.

    Guns are illegal in Iran i believe, so citizens are at the mercy of the army or in this case, thugs

    My "short list of responses" are whats known in most circles as critical thinking. Apparently you have no intention of engaging in that kind of behavior.
