The Iran nuke thing is a nice diversion. At least for the lib progs, neocons & other war mongers. Keeps the focus away from the ‘super CONgress,, over spending & ponzi borrowing, impeaching 0 for violating the war powers jive with Libya… if you’d bother to check our continually escalating debt, unfunded liabilities & borrowing to spend more than we take in, you would know our $ to be a MUCH LARGER threat to US & the world than some tin pot dictator & a nuke that’ll probably be accidentally detonated in Iran..
Why golly, he was elected. Hmmm…. I thought we were supposed to support elected leaders in the ME. Oh that’s right. Only if they do what we say. How about Saddam Hussein? Did not the US govt set him up, get mad at him later & invade the country under false pretenses?
If you say “Yup he was elected, but he did thus & so to stay in power…” are we going to war with Chavez in Venezuela? Where was every one when China went nuke? The Russians? N Korea? NK is even working on a missile to carry their nuke…when we gonna invade them?
Israel & other ME countries have plenty of deterrent power, as has been pointed out.
Ron Paul is quite correct about we must stop finding pretexts to invade the ME, bombing them & killing lots of civilians, then invading & occupying, staying on, bossing them around, instituting a police state in the name of security [like what’s happening in the USA]. Which is another issue anti-Iran nukesters shy away from.
