    Agree or Disagree with the quote?

    what gibbering madness may look like

    Thought provoking ... do you agree or disagree ... comments?

    Are we going to saber rattle over Iran ...? I might reconsider Ron Paul if her were not so crazy on some of the the domestic issues.

    Democracy, contrary to what they try to tell us, it’s not a paper that you hang on the wall and then you have a democracy. Democracy is a social evolution. It is something cultural. Iranians, they have become much more secular, and they are ready for democracy, but they have to fight themselves for democracy, and the only thing that other countries can do is to understand their fight and help them in their fight.

    I said "other". I agree that people are not that different, for the most part, but governments are.

    I am very different from many people on this forum and in my life, so yes I disagree.

    Actually ... I liked the quote! ... yet on my mind is all the reckless saber rattling the GOP is doing in the debates (except for Ron Paul). They are recklessly encouraging a rush to war and inaccurately portraying President Obama as an appeaser. it kind of reminds me of GWB and the scary WMD pointed at us and the mushroom cloud story in that low hushed voice. Especially Santorum ... I like when Paul calls them out on it!

    Oh yes good point ... yet I think her juxtaposition was not of the all the unique and fascinating qualities among each person yet we as individuals share the same disconnect and wide gulf with our governments.

    I agree. With stipulations.
    Supporting a green revolution that wants to tear a while government down is wrong and destabilizing. We wouldnt support alot of the folks in that revolution running things at home I assume, alot of them were fighting for freedom and democracy as it were. And we shouldnt believe that they would happen to have a positive view on Israel. If we know anything about the middle east is that when they vote... they vote for islamists. Supporting the parties and candidates that want to run and are often forbidden as per a few years ago in Iran... most definitely.

    Reckless rush to war....How many years must we impose sanctions and try diplomacy before it is no longer considered a "reckless rush to war"?

    The US tries diplomacy?

    We don't have an embassy.

    It is incumbent on US leadership to prevent those whose mantra is something along the lines of "Death to America" from acquiring WMD. It is also incumbent on Israeli leadership to do the same. Whether by diplomacy, saber-rattling or other actions, that is completely irrelevant to achieving their goal.

    Wouldn't it be silly if we did something really really really bad to them in the past that we don't talk about.... ever? And that's why they're angry?
