    Why isn't it? Libertarians have free speech and are allowed to say what they want. Since my statement doesn't obligate others to do things against their wishes, it's very libertarian.

    i am trying to understand why refusing to object to another country acquiring - of its own volition - that which our country now possesses is somehow un-libertarian
    iran's efforts to acquire nuclear capacity has not been detrimental to our nation's legitimate interests
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    In 50 years they might be close. That is if they actually had them today.

    They're at the table anyway. They sit on a rather large pool of oil.

    Re: Ahmadinejad Says Iran Is Now a 'Nuclear State'

    when's obama going to engage that famous personal diplomacy with the leaders of iran?

    when are we going to see the remarkable, redefining results of his reach out?

    why can't he stand up for the proud but oppressed people protesting on the streets of tehran?

    because he doesn't want to undermine the regime he's so set on negotiating with, that's why

    let's see, it went down like this

    ahmedinejad---we're going to build the bomb

    obama's response---we have a "two branch" approach, reach out on the one hand and, if that doesn't work, hammer with the other

    meanwhile, the rotten regime itself is in some risk of crashing

    comprehensively clueless exec, the most incompetent pol at the national level america has ever produced

    I believe that Bush showed support for those in Iran seeking more liberty.

    No one is wishing for equal capabilities. Having a nuke is one thing. Having an accurate delivery system is another. And having more nukes and a better delivery system than anyone else is... well that makes you the United States.

    American foreign policy is its own worse enemy.
