    Iran would never attack the US. We have enough nukes to blow up the world many times over.
    Its also unlikely they will get into a nuke shoot-out with Isreal. Anyone remember MAD? Mutually Assured Destruction? In the end, humans are smart enough to realize that nobody wins in a nuclear shoot-out.

    That doesn't mean they will attack anyone.

    Statements by Ahmadinijahd about the messianic 12th Imam, how Israel needs to be destroyed, and how he doesn't care if Iran is destroyed too as long as the conflagration brings about the coming of the 12th Imam and the New Caliphate.

    No, Glen Beck says that they say that. They do not say that themselves.
    Iranian people are good people. You should really try getting to know some. A person is always more educated when they speak on a subject when they have actual experience with whom they are speaking of.

    Bolded: totally false statement. There are not enough nukes in existence to blow up the world even once. There are probably not enough nukes to wipe out humanity... almost certainly not.

    MAD only works if both sides are somewhat rational. Ahmadinijhad does not appear to be rational. It is a scary prospect that we're hoping the Mullahs that pull his strings are MORE rational than he is.

    Dont make assumptions. As it happens I have known Iranians.

    I have nothing against them personally. I just don't want their crazy-ass leaders getting nukes.


    There is no hate involved on my part, simply a desire that my nation protect itself and its middle-eastern interests.

    Should we bomb our shadow as well? It is as much threat to the US as Iran.

    Hyperbole.

    Our shadow is merely an absence of light caused by matter blocking sunshine, and incapable of harm.

    Iran is an extremist regime with a revolutionary and apocalyptic creedo that may well induce them to attack our allies or us if they acquire the means... therefore capable of harm, lots of harm... especially with nukes and missles.

    OUR crazy ass leaders are not QUITE as crazy as theirs.


    They're also more preoccupied with amassing wealth, fame, status, and blowjobs from strange women... which is good I suppose, as it keeps them out of REAL trouble more of the time...
