    Absolutely not. Let's not forget that Syria and Assad allowed millions of Iraqis to seek refuge during our recent invasion and destruction of infrastructure. I didn't see anyone in the USA inviting those refugees over here. I don't believe the press I am reading about the riots and bombings. I think he has the same Islamic fundamentalist problem that all the Arabs have and uses the necessary power to maintain order and leadership. In the MidEast, it takes a dictatorial power type to maintain stability and it appears to me that is what Assad is trying to do. We need look no further than the OCCUPY protests and police crackdowns to see the same thing on our streets. We don't have thousands of fundamentalists with bombs on the loose here, so the scale is reduced, but not all that different. I'm busy today, but later I will look for articles from Turkey, Russia, and maybe Germany to get an objective view on what is happening and compare it to the "Mighty Wurlitzer."

    Try to follow my post directly... instead of attempting to make inference that I am some sortof dolt who thinks Iran Isn't going to get a nuke. You may even know that lots of people are of the conviction that proliferation of nuclear weapons is good as it deters nations from conventional war... and likely half of people who know what they're talking about find nuclear weapons and deterrence to be irrelevant anyways.

    As for every point you've made thusfar you happen to be wrong.

    Unless you have the secret links to top secret documents that Iran has a nuke :O
    Possibly in a nearby coloring book.

    I can only go by what the IAEA Report on Iran, with date 8 November 2011, says.




    "A Look At The IAEA's Damning Nuclear Report On Iran"
    Skipping the details about enrichment, heavy water, and fuel fabrication, we'll highlight the Possible Military Dimensions found in the International Atomic Energy's November 8 report on Iran.

    Iran agreed to provide the IAEA "access without delay" to all nuclear sites, since August 2008, Tehran has not "engaged with the [IAEA] in any substantative way on this matter."
    IRAN HAS carried out the following acts to produce a nuclear weapon:

    Successful efforts to obtain nuclear military equipment
    Tried to find undisclosed ways to develop nuclear weapons
    Attempted to buy nuclear weapons, development information, and documentation from outside sources, using a "clandestine, nuclear supply network."
    Worked on developing an "indigenous" nuclear weapons and components
    The above activities took place since 2003 and are believed to be ongoing.

    Still ignoring every point in every post made...

    Your point made... irrelevant, as Iran does not yet have a nuke.

    Carry on.

    If they get a nuke, rendering western invasion politically impossible... be sure to check the next flavor of the week as the 'threat' dies away to the next interests of power.
