    North Korea Helped Syria Build It's Nuclear Facility

    ...The Bush administration went public Thursday with sensitive intelligence meant to show that North Korea spent years helping Syria build a covert facility for nuclear weapons before the plant was destroyed in an Israeli airstrike last year....
    The threat from Iran having nukes seems to be over exaggerated a bit. Plenty of baddy nations w/nukes. Whats one more?
    hey, what could possibly go wrong, amIright? So Iran is ruled by conflicting fundamentalists who believe that the destruction of Israel and the kickoff of WWIII will bring back the 13th Imam who will lead the Persian People into glorious global domination... I mean cmon! Who doesn't have an a crazy uncle that believes that stuff and plays with nuclear weapons all the time, amIright?!?

    Re: Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    It seems like the criteria for invading a country is becoming twofold.

    1. Has weapons vaguely comparable to ours, though still no possible chance of standing up to us in a fight.

    2. Is predominantly a religion that isn't the predominant one here.

    I wonder how we'd feel about North Korea if they were a primarily Christian country...

    It is because every time we go to war sort of instead of really going to war, it turns out badly. If we're going to war, then let's go to war the way we did in WWII. If it's not worth the country going to war, then let's not go to war.

    Declare war and go in to win, or don't go to war. We should have learned that lesson in Vietnam.

    Even though the US doesn't have troops in Syria, they are actively supporting the Syrian rebels (Intellectual Musings - Evidence that the West is arming the Syrian rebels) and Al Jazeera has had quite biased coverage of the ongoing events in Syria (Intellectual Musings - Al Jazeera-Biased Coverage On Syria)

    Its fairly well established that Iran would not use nuclear weapons against anybody, because they know they would be utterly destroyed in the retaliation strike. Their want to survive will override any religious bull****. The only threat that is possible would be a Iran shifting off one of its nukes to a rouge unit that could use it, without it coming back to bite Iran in the ass. But, like I said, you have numerous anti Israeli and anti American countries, who are in possession of nuclear weapons, and we have yet to see a nuclear attack on either us or Israel. Once a technology is out there like that, it is virtually impossible to shut everybody else out from it, if they want it bad enough, by stopping Iran today form attaining nuclear weapons, you would only be slowing down the inevitable. Thats the reality of the situation. If we wanted to use economic sanctions, computer hacking, or even small special forces to slow this process down, I'm all for it, but if Iran wants to get nuclear weapons, the only way to really stop them, is to utterly destroy them. and if thats your plan, then you'd better get ready to go after every other nuclear holding country that is a heavy islamist state as well as anti Israeli. an option, which is not an option at all.

    Re: Should America deploy troops to Syria?

    This is what the the UN is for...
    What the UN is really for is to avoid WW3, tens of hundreds must die so that millions do not.
    A very sad commentary on the state of humanity !
    Why are Russia and China in the UN ?
    Are N Korea and Iran members ?
    Imagine a police department with Mafia members in the upper echelons .....
    Not that this has not happened !
    Extremists, instead of the Mafia, even worse, IMO.

    They've been saying that for decades.
