    Re: Should we bomb Iran to prevent their getting nuclear weapons

    I have no problem with Iran having nukes, in fact, I'd be a lot more comfortable with them having nukes than half of our so-called allies.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Why haven't we invaded/bombed North Korea?

    Your first two bits: I don't care. Again, us vs them.

    Second bit: We haven't invaded NK because of China. We're not ready to take on China at this time, if we can avoid it. Also SK fears they'd lose their capitol in the first 20 minutes of war, due to all the conventional artillery NK has stationed within a few miles of it.

    It's not between US and THEM. They're no threat to our national security, their missiles can only hit their neighbors at best.

    Today, yes. Tomorrow?

    And having the middle east go up in flames from a nuke exchange between Iran and Israel would not be good for US interests...

    You don't care because you're an American who thinks we can never do anything wrong.

    Fact is, Iran is not our problem.

    They are not our neighbor.

    It's not us or them.

    Europe has a much bigger stake in what Iran does than we do. let them worry about Iran.

    Iran is in no position to invade or attack the USofA so we should not be striking first based on little more than assumptions and fear-mongering.

    We shouldn't be worrying about Israel, they're not us, we're not them.

    WAY wrong. Mind-reading is not your forte sir.



    Fact is, Iran is not our problem.

    They are not our neighbor.

    Their missles are getting better every year. They're trying to put stuff in orbit. They're getting help from NK, Russia and China. They could be within a few years of some kind of ICBM.

    Even if it were not so, again, it is not in America's interests to let the mideast go up in flames from an Iran-Israel nuke exchange.

    Far more than that. I know people who know more about this than Joe Average, and what they know has them worried.

    Middle east: Major oil supplier to Europe, Russia and the USA.

    Middle east in nuclear flames: Bad Thing for everyone.

    That one requires some explanation. Who among our allies do you trust less than Iran?
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Generally yes, so why do we spend so much time supporting Israel and pissing off the nations that actually provide our oil?
