    You know what I really hate? When someone accuses me of denying history repeating itself to just try and prove someone else wrong.

    History repeats itself no doubt. However some comparisons are simply hogwash. They show the ignorance of the one that attempts it.

    Ok, fine, then take that up with them

    However I see differences in regards to "pulling Iran's teeth" also. Iran can be eliminated and contained, or the very least made to seriously regret it if it does anything aggressive if it really came down to that. Hitler could not, at least at first.
    No attempt is being made to cause that, either. Diplomacy alone won't get us there.

    I also see an attempt at pulling Iran's teeth at this point in time -- would make a poor situation much worse -- in that the worlds oil supply will be temporarily halted putting the world economy at the brink.

    How will the oil supply be halted? You think Saudi Arabia is exactly comfortable with Iran having nukes? I'm just guessing, but I would say they aren't.

    Here's a clue: Strait of Hormuz threat by Iran. If you don't know anything about it Google it.

    Actually, the French were the ones for years throughout the 1930s who warned the UK about the growing problem in Germany. It fell on deaf ears.
