    that's a really slow missile
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    It's an established fact that the Iranians are buying nuclear technology from Iran.

    Yeah, so nuts they ask for corporate style cost vs benefit analysis in deciding what projects to fund.

    As for the rest of you, care to give me a single historical example where the Mullahs risked their own necks rather then sending someone else to die in their place?

    They're buying nuclear technology from themselves?

    If it's for themselves, why not give it for free?

    The difference between using child soldiers, which happened over 20 years ago, and getting nuked is that one doesn't get you killed and doesn't take you outta power, while the other does.

    Also for all those bitching about the US-Russian nuclear arms treaty, think of this. We are removing 1550 of their nukes, and even if Russia is helping Iran build nukes thats NOT going to replace that threat. Iran is not going to build 1550 nuclear weapons, they can use a couple as a threat but 1550 is just excessive for that purpose.

    Notice that the ones who scream for Jihad, aren't the ones actually fighting it?

    So while Russia is signing non-proliferation and disarmament agreements with the U.S., are they also working closely with Iran to make them a capable threat to the U.S. at the same time?

    If we don't do something soon, this won't end well.
    I help you out.... from a biblical perspective, man's dominion of the earth does not end well. It is inevitable..... but it doesn't have to end now.

    That all said, the first step to control arms amongst the non-nuke countries is for the "responsible" nuclear countries to recognize the inevitable outcome of continuing to arm, and the pressures that puts on the non-nuclears to need to arm to survive. The first step of controlling the situation is a non-proliferation treaty and a step down..... this has been a consistent vision of every US President from Truman to Clinton except for the guy in the early part of this decade, and especially including that conservative icon (who would never get the nomination in 2012), Ronald Reagan.

    There is absolutely no reason to have more than 1500 nukes. #1501 and #1502 buys you very little in terms of power brokering. OTH, standing down could buy you world cooperation, or at least closer cooperation amongst the superpowers. Russia no more wants loose nukes or Iran to have nukes than we do. They have a number for threats to their sovereignty, including muslim influence.

    So we are doing something. What did you have in mind?
