    Re: Who do you trust more to deal with Iran?

    I hate to say it but under Obama I expect another mass attack on our homeland that will make 9/11 look like kindergarten... The man has no clue on how to run a country and without a teleprompter would be a babbling idiot.

    The USA has already said that it won't let Iran have nukes so all we can do is wait and see what happens.

    If you use your Google you can find a photo of Rumsfeld and Saddam Hussein shaking hands when all that was going on.

    With the sunset provision in the deal do you think the Saudi's are going to wait and see what happens? Funny Obama would like the U.S. to have no nuclear weapons but is fine with Iran having them.

    Re: Who do you trust more to deal with Iran?

    Saying after this:
    "A new assessment by American intelligence agencies released Monday concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains frozen, contradicting a judgment two years ago that Tehran was working relentlessly toward building a nuclear bomb."
    http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/04/wo...pagewanted=all

    "Less than a month after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's 2012 warning to the UN General Assembly that Iran was 70 percent of the way to completing its "plans to build a nuclear weapon", Israel's intelligence service believed that Iran was "not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons".
    Mossad contradicted Netanyahu on Iran nuclear programme - Al Jazeera English

    "(Reuters) - The United States, European allies and even Israel generally agree on three things about Iran's nuclear program: Tehran does not have a bomb, has not decided to build one, and is probably years away from having a deliverable nuclear warhead."
    Special Report: Intel shows Iran nuclear threat not imminent | Reuters

    "Despite this heady rhetoric, Netanyahu’s estimates of an imminent Iranian nuclear bomb have consistently been at odds with analyses made by his own intelligence agency. In 2011, departing Mossad intelligence chief Meir Dagan said in his final intelligence summary that, contrary to Netanyahu’s repeated statements at the time, an Iranian nuclear weapon is in fact not imminent, and that any military action against the country could end up spurring the development of such a weapon.... The conclusion from this history is inescapable. Over the course of more than 20 years, Benjamin Netanyahu has made false claims about nuclear weapons programs in both Iran and Iraq, inventing imaginary timelines for their development, and making public statements that contradicted the analysis of his own intelligence advisers."
    https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2...-nuclear-bomb/

    "Iran is continuing to comply with the conditions of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA), an interim deal that Iran and the P5+1 reached in November 2013. In total, these actions have halted Iran’s nuclear progress and rolled back key elements of proliferation concern...Iran is continuing to implement all of its commitments under the JPOA. Iran is making progress on the new actions it pledged to take as part of the agreement to extend its negotiations with the P5+1. Iran has completed three of five actions it pledged to take as part of its cooperation with the IAEA’s investigation into past military actions." IAEA Report Shows Iran’s Nuclear Program Remains Frozen |

    I'm gonna say not the crazy war hawk, who is running for an election, who has been making the same erroneous claim since 1992, who's own intelligence agency contradicts him.... Yea Bibi. Not that guy

    Obama. The US is a far larger threat to Iran than Israel, and Iran is a far larger threat to Israel than the US, so Obama would have far more leverage in negotiations than Netanyahu would.

    I realise I'm not being properly partisan for this thread, so I apologise.

    I picked the PM of Israel. Mostly because we have nothing to lose if Iran gets nukes.We are too far away and we have a heavily armed military and civilian population. Israel on the other hand is much closer to Iran and therefor actually has something to lose.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
