    We should just nuke 'em and get it over with. Too much hassle and money deploying missle shields in ME.

    I'm not quite sure what to tell you other than it sounds like a personal problem to me. I guess you could always either move to a different country or spend energy getting your candidates elected.

    You do have another option which is to stop paying your taxes. However, that is not likely to end in an outcome you find enjoyable.
    No I would not. That would land in me prison.

    I'm glad you understand my dilemma.

    Read my new thread on Obama's nuke program.

    Re: US raises stakes on Iran by sending in ships and missiles

    the dumbo administration today, february 2, 2010, has NO policy pertaining to iran, none

    during his charming campaign he was all committed to meeting personally with the leaders of iran, reversing decades of responsible, adult united states foreign policy

    he thought the power of his personality would make ahmedinejad swoon as if the scrawny dude in the bad suit who held our 52 for 444 days were a debatepolitics.com liberal

    president pieface attempted his vaunted reachout from atop that pyramid in cairo, accomplishing bupkis

    he might as well have been extending those long, bony arms to the republican caucus in baltimore

    iran has flipped off our flummoxed chief at every turn

    obama NEEDS putin onboard if he ever wants to imagine even placing sanctions against iran

    but the puppet master is determinedly indisposed

    as is hu in china

    those two emerging superpowers will NEVER sanction the supreme leader

    obama was so gung ho on his narcissistic reachout, he IGNORED the incipient and widespread freedom movement which broke out on the streets of tehran in the summer and in december, loathe to offend his imaginary negotiation partners

    obama has wasted an entire year relative to iran, a 2009 fraught with potentials for meaningful and hopeful internal change in the world's leading shiite power

    in doing so, obama has totally alienated the israelis, our only responsible partners in the region

    in his snakelike sotu obtuse obama went out of his way to refer to the holocaust deniers as The Islamic Republic of Iran

    hey, you few remaining obama supporters, none of whom are enthusiastic anymore, can you tell the rest of us exactly what is obama's policy pertaining to iran?

    he can't

    Ok fair point but he does say 'we' not 'I'. Also does it matter who does the talking? Diplomats are paid for a reason
