    Iran has detonated a nuclear device in Israel? How did I miss that?

    Anyway, Idle threats vs. Idling threat.
    It’s a stand-off of bullies.

    Guess the Palestinian kid is in the infirmary, recovering from the Noogies, Indian Burns, Wedgies and Invasions of Personal Space that the Israeli bully just perpetrated, behind the Principal’s back.

    Ahmadinejad is dangerous and hated by the majority of his people. I admit to not understanding why the religious leadership tolerate him as they do unless he had greater power in the revolutionary guard than I’ve been led to believe. The majority of the Iranian/Persian people hate him and if elections weren’t so controlled, he would have been voted out long ago. More Iranians like America than dislike America, and it is up to us to encourage and increase that friendship by not killing the family of those who like us while trying to eliminate he ones who do not. America must except some blame because we were the ones who installed the Shah and allowed him to run torture prisons and subjugate his people as long as the Shah acted as a buffer between the oil fields of the middle east and Soviet Russia. However, the attack on the US embassy and imprisonment of over 400 US civilian and military personnel was also illegal and wrong. Ahmadinejad does not care about Iran, he only wants his ‘fame’ and power. Iran under him is a victim, not an enemy.

    C Downs is a great poster … thanks!
    The US missed a colossal opportunity to reach “real” Iranians when they were protesting in the streets a year before the Arab Spring. The Iranian revolution of the 1970s was started by secular intellectuals and stolen by Islamists, who have brutally supressed “liberals” there ever since. The movie “Persepolis” is a great way to learn about the real Iran.

    "rather than accept the tens of deaths of those around the terrorist.
    Say, where’s ScottPM, I just found another callous remark about the lives of innocents as “collateral damage”. Oh wait; it’s you, ScotPM! Why, hello there. Fancy meeting you here, next to a callous remark.

    “Israel isn’t the bully and never has been”
    “Israel doesn’t aim their attacks at women and children but rather the terrorist masterminds.”

    ‘What Our Society Is Made of’: Former IDF Soldiers Confess Abuse of Palestinian Children

    I know, I know; these are self-hating Jews! I mean, they have to be self-hating, why else would they implicate their nation?!.
    What were they thinking, confessing like that.

    Monitor Iran’s “peaceful” use of their materials, AND give them the same number of nukes Israel now possesses and play the “MAD” game. Neither side is actually willing to go “nuclear” with weapons because of “blowback”, political and physical. And it IS time to realize the radicals like Netanyahu, ARE the ones constantly shooting spitballs to keep things stirred up.

    A true peace might just be the downfall of Israel’s economy, and “social status”. Think about it.

    “but somehow ‘found’ thousands of tonnes of uranium ore somewhere.”
    Back home it was said that South African apartheid-era government provided it in the ‘70s in exchange for some know-how (which originally came from the French, British & US). I do wonder though, where the estimate of 200 devices comes from; doesn’t that take a lot of cake to party? Vananu was the party pooper.

    My initial comment refers to Israel being the idling threat: It has nuclear capability and is ready to deliver it.
    Iran, represented/fronted by Ahmadinejad, is simply an idle threat.

    Also, can you imagine a country flogging nuclear warheads to others? Beggars belief. Ah yes, that’s happened; Khan from Pakistan gave some know-how to the North Koreans.
    And Peres offered it to Botha. What’s the difference again?
    Don’t bullies form gangs & stick together.
