    Orly?

    1992 - Netanyahu - Iran is "three to five years" away from reaching nuclear weapons capability
    1995 - Netanyahu - Iran will have a nuclear weapon in "three to five years"
    1996 - Netanyahu - Iran is "extremely close" to creating nuclear weapons
    2009 - Netanyahu - Iran is "probably one or two years away" from developing nuclear weapons
    2009 - Netanyahu - Iran "has the capability now to make one bomb" and Iran can "make several bombs in a year or two."
    2012- Netanyahu - Iran is "a few months away" from making a nuclear bomb

    hmmmmmmmmm

    maybe because the current situation in Iran is in (large?) part a consequence of idiotic US foreign policy beginning in 1953 and continuing through the 80's?

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

    I don't care for either man but I think Obama is a bit more likely to prevent a war with Iran than Netanyahu because, at least in this case, Obama seems to favor diplomacy. Despite their rhetoric sometimes, I do believe Iran is a "rational actor".

    But I am also inclined to just pull out of that region altogether and let them deal with things themselves. But that could just be my frustration talking.

    Seems a lot like those rapidly rising sea level predictions that are always said to be coming soon to a coast near you. As with that threat, we are told that we must act now because when we actually see it happen then it will be too late to avoid it.

    Yep, he's been crying wolf for a long time. Hopefully the Israelis do as the former chief of Mossad said, and **** can this freak on March 17th.

    4 if you now include Obama Derangement Syndrome (ODS) - which is now becoming clearly visible in many threads and posts around here.

    I don't mind Reagan overall, but to say I worship him is far from the truth.
    if he were alive today, i'd probably thank him for being the kind of President we needed at the time.... right before I punched him in the mouth.

    in any event, I don't worry about what exaggerations idiot liberal ideologues concoct in their heads (no one takes them seriously anyways).. but it's still a good idea to challenge them when they start spewing their rhetoric.

    the US was not the major arms supplier for Iraq... we did not provide him with most of his arms.
    the Soviet Union, France, China, and .. oddly enough.. Chile.. provided Saddam with his armaments... US support, in the grand scheme, was minor.

    as for the Iran-Iraq war... i'm fairly familiar with it... familiar enough to know it found it's footing in long held border disputes ( primarily the Shatt al Arab) , and the assassination of an Iraqi foreign minister... of course, the tyrants Saddam wish to gain more oil lands coupled with the Ayatollahs hated of the ba'athist regime on religious grounds didn't help matters much either.

    if I had my druthers, I would have preferred Saddam taking Iran... he's an evil **** who deserves to reside in several levels of hell... but he wasn't as crazy as the lunatics in charge of Iran.
    IMO, taking Iran would have also hastened his demise.... which would have brought me delight ( as opposed to seeing him being allowed to breath for several more decades)

    while it's great Saddam has left the gene pool, it's still sucks the Islamic lunatics in Iran are still alive, kicking.. and ruling the roost.

    At least when someone is talking about Obama, it's in the present.

    Bush, Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Colonel Sanders aren't trying to make a deal with Iran now. Obama is.
