    See bolded, then everyone gets them? Does that seem reasonable to you, to justify Iran getting not just refining to 20% but actual nuclear weapons. That's what she's supporting and that is the ground upon which she stands.

    Genocide?

    The peace plan guaranteed Israel's security.. also trade and diplomatic relations as well as recognition. All 22 Arab states signed on with Syria being the last.

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

    Despite it being my favorite defense of Iran, I think this thread has enough Israel. Wanna go ML? Otherwise I think we drop it.

    Still in play:

    1. The US nuked civilians, so what is it worried about.
    3. ? I forget the other argument.

    The other argument:

    3. Iran getting nukes is only fair. But I don't think anyone except sharon is taking that seriously.

    That leaves (1.) the a-bombs which, for Japan, were a roaring success. Japan went from suicidal backwards god-king to developed liberal western democracy in a couple generations.

    Oh... I would much prefer that Iran didn't get nuclear weapons because if they do, the GCC will have no choice but to get their own nuclear weapons.

    Nope. I disagree with everyone getting them, but at the same time....I disagree with the U.S. dictating who gets one and who doesn't. We got bigger problems then Tehran. We need to worry about paying the interest on our debt before we worry about Iran.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    The US should go in there kick some ass, take some names and go through these underground nuclear facilities and determine once and for all what they are doing down there. Enough talk, enough delays. If Iran is developing nuclear weapons take capability away from them.

    BTW your expert can come along and garner information for his next book...
    Thanks but no thanks, we just got finished with an almost decade long goose chase in Iraq that cost us more lives than were lost on 9/11 and a couple trillion dollars of taxpayer money.

    Why compare it to 911? Let's compare it to the Iraq/Iran war, the genocide of the Kurds, his invasion and plans for Kuwait, the genocide of the marsh Arabs or the sale of food-for-oil. Let's compare it to the number of people and families that 'disappeared' under Saddam; oh wait, we can't, because no international witness was allowed.
