    Don't put "you" and "I" in the same sentence, it might create undesired misrepresentations.
    Liberal democracies tend to avoid discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, creed, and the like, rather than maintain the supremacy of a specific ethnic/religious group to the extent that there's dismay and anger about the population growth of an ethnic minority.
    Indeed, which is why he was the leader of a Liberal Democracy.
    More importantly, internal domestic conditions are not necessarily indicative of the international policies of any political regime. The U.S. is a good example of this, as its internal structure is one of the most democratic in the world, yet it's been governed by a series of political administrations that have supported the violent destruction of democratic governments around the world along with the successes of authoritarian dictatorships.

    That's odd; this doesn't seem to contain a response to my post so much as somewhat boring comments. Please rectify this error.

    I'm afraid this error is in your computer and not mine.

    I have no idea what this means, but as it's a non-response to a topic unrelated to the thread anyway, we'll ignore it.

    Indeed, which is why he was the leader of a Liberal Democracy.

    Is that a fact? Is there not a commitment to establishing a state around the "identity" of a specific ethnic/religious group in the state in question's very declaration of establishment, and is there not dismay about the "demographic threat" posed by an increasing indigenous population within that state? I see no response to that here.

    Ohhh the evil west and their damned freedoms.

    I almost thought that this was intended to be satirical when I saw it, considering that the comment it "responded" to would have functioned better as a rebuttal to it. The exact point was that the domestic freedoms of certain Western countries are disconnected from the international policies of their governments.

    As I was saying, the error was in your computer kiddo.

    It was merely a response to your comment, which, mind you, was in no way related to the topic of the thread - Iran, and neither were any of your other posts.
    Please refrain from going off-topic as it does no justice to the OP and his intention that led to the opening of this thread.

    Are those facts?
    The fact that Israel is a Liberal Democracy is quite known to anyone with any shard of knowledge on the subject, I'm astonished that you were unaware of it so far.

    Which is entirely wrong and has no truth to it, considering that the US's foreign policy adopts morality whenever it is in the state of war, which cannot honestly be said for the other side, ehm?

    Dear Oftencold,

    I have implemented changes that I believe will bring hope and change...to the hope and change that we all hope will change. Now...I can understand your dismay...but...the hope and change, that I feel are necessary...are the hope and change that I hopefully feel you must change for there to be any change in the hope we can all change to...hopefully.

    Your absolute joke of a President,

    Barack head circus clown Obama.

    Hope and change = Bait and switch

    ADDENDUM: Minutes after I posted this, Fox news announced that Obama will be sashaying off to Copenhagen to lobby for the Olympics to be help in Chicago.

    I wonder, how many people who voted for Obama, thought they'd be getting a political version of Vince, Sham Wow guy?

    Would you suggest he maybe chair a security council meeting on just this topic? Oh wait, he did that just Thursday. Would you care to withdraw your complaint that he is not putting effort into this problem? Further, you do realize that the president works on things while he is traveling for other things, right? Hell, Bush presided almost as much while on vacation as while in the White House.

    Chair a security council meeting...my my. That certainly had alot of influence on Mahmoud, he must be firing off a medium range missile for every hour Obama chaired the meeting.

    And...why not put Obama in the Chair, i mean...who has a greater grasp on what a threat Iran is other than our Salesman in Chief of GMC....our great health care provider...our community organizing Chicago politician..Barack Obama?

    For the love of God!

    Re: Iran flexes muscle ahead of talks with major powers

    All this hysterical rhetoric about Iran and none of these right wingers have any clue that testing missles and building nuclear power processing plants is all legal under International Law.

    That's right............................................ Iran broke no agreements.

    Iran did not ratify this 2007 agreement stipulating these type of facilties be delcared and they told the UN this fact over one year ago.

    http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwa...ran/index.html

    But it's OK for Israel not to comply with UN Demands about it's nuclear stockpile.
