    It's a different table in my view, but that's okay.

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

    I think we act a bit myopic to suggest that Iran wants to sit at the table with the US. The ruling administration knows that their repression of human liberties is all over the front-page news. They know that regardless of what ever they pull from their sleeves the US will only reject their attempts because the Iranian regime is seen as juxtaposed to the very foundational morals of the US.

    I suspect that the Iranian leaders are trying to coalesce its people, though in an almost amusingly feeble attempt. Iranians and their regime agree that the country should be allowed to right to nuclear energy, in whatever form it may take (though there seems to be, from the Green perspective, a tendency to differ from the ruling regime on the role the Western world is to take in talks of nuclear capabilities).

    Everyone critiques Obama's cautious attitude toward the Iranian situation, yet no one offers any solutions.

    I disagree, the Chinese sit at the table and break all kinds of human rights.

    And again, you seem clueless as to WHY there isn't much "Let's go invade NK!!!" type talk...

    You really should have an understanding of the situation before spouting off like this, makes you sound shrill.


    Seoul, the Capital of South Korea, is a mere 50km from the DMZ. The NK have an estimated 35k-50k rocket and artillery tubes trained on the city. The war plan of NK is to start an all out barrage of the city. Assuming that the conflict remains purely conventional and doesn't include Bio or Chem shells out of the North, the Estimated causality count for the first HOUR of war shots being fired is around 50%. There are 19 Million people living in and around the city.

    Now, you tell me, Mister "No one does ANYTHING about NK", don't ya feel JUST A WEE bit stupid for making such a comment?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    See, for you and the others with the "why can't they develop Nukes too" silliness.. The Iranian's aren't lead by sane folk, they show every indication of having the desire, and the ability TO USE said weapons offensively.

    That is because they are the second most powerful country in the world.

    Iran is not China.

    It's not our place to selectively crush dictatorships.
