    Or how about the day of 911, where Israelis were caught driving truck bombs around New York City. One of them was pulled over near the Washingington bridge and the Israeli occupants arrested. That was reported in the news once and then quickly covered up. The other one exploded on King st. between 6th and 7th. The 2 occupants were arrested and this wasn't in the news. Yeah, great allies!

    Unfortunately, either no one should have nukes or everyone should have them.

    I never thought it would come to this.. For 50 years the Saudis, Kuwaitis etc have demanded a nuke free ME.. and now this.

    That we would use them to stop aggression, rather than to initiate it.

    I didn't say we were "special" or "beyond reproach." I said that Iran's leadership has a questionable agenda and they are a brutal dictatorship.

    That doesn't work for me.

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

    Leon Panetta recently stated that Israel had not made a decision on whether to attack Iran over its nuclear program, and suggested that stronger sanctions were still an option.

    Military strikes should never be considered as an option until all non-military avenues/ diplomatic solutions have been completely and utterly exhausted. At the very least i hope all involved realise the Human cost at stake if they get it wrong whichever way it goes. It will be significant.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Not to mention the insanity factor of their leader.
