    Yeah, let’s have another war!! It’s been years since we started one, and all the weapons just get rusty when they aren’t used.

    What would American politics be without a boogieman of some sorts to point to?

    Talk first or bomb first. It’s become THE American dilemma… on talk radio.

    Wow, what an idiotic cartoon. Absolutely not comparable. We could annihilate either country overnight if we wanted to — and we completely lost what little morality we have left in international affairs. Is this what this cartoonist prefers? Bomb anyone you disagree with?

    Bueller, check out recent evaluations of Chamberlain’s actions in 1938 (google "neville chamberlain buying time). There is good reason to believe that he bought time for Britain to arm by his moves in Munich, and reason to believe that he knew he was doing just that. I see no reason to denigrate leaders for doing their utmost to use diplomacy and much reason to support such actions, as force is probably the worst of all methods to achieve goals on either the personal or the national level.

    It’s totally clear that Stalin used the Hitler-Stalin pact in order to build up his military. One doesn’t have to be a Stalinist to be glad that he did so.

    Dang, yeah, this is awful! If The Decider were still in charge, we would have invaded both countries by now. I mean, what’s a few thousand dead soldiers and a few hundred thousand dead civilians, compared with looking weak fooling around with them diplomacy things?
    -
    I mean, they both possess WMDs, right? And Iran even has nucular weapons, or at least wants to, right?
    -
    And, they both have oil! So that right there will pay for all the costs.
    -
    Boy, is North Korea lucky they don’t have any oil.

    Tigger: ask Palestinian refugees who went to Lebanon about Sharon and the “Sabra” refugee camp slaughter orchestrated by him, and those “folks to the south”.

    Hey, they pay 8% of what America spends on its military. They`re…like…BRISTLING with weapons.

    8%? When did you join the GOP?

    Syria’s military budget was $1.8 billion in 2011.

    Iran’s was $9 billion.

    The only country that used atomic weapons on civilians spent $700 billion, so the number is more like 1.6%.

    By comparison, Israel spent $15 billion, Turkey & the UAR spent $18 billion a piece. The Saudis spent $56 billion, far & away the most in the region.

    The idea that Iran & Syria present anything like the danger of Nazi Germany is fueled by gross misrepresentation of the facts.

    Well, Sharon’s mentor was terrorist turned Prime Minister, Yizhak Shamir.

    think how easy it is becoming for them to get a nuke. Any kind of nuke.

    If it’s so easy, why haven’t they done it? The truth is, building a suitcase nuke is far beyond the capability of any non-state actor & even most nations. The US & the USSR experimented in small nukes weighing 50-100 pounds, with a blast of 190 tons, but discarded the programs as basically useless for their needs.

    Such weapons would level a couple blocks, not an entire city. Any nation or group that uses a nuclear weapon on civilians is probably not going to be around long enough to enjoy the ‘victory’. The terrorist threat is still conventional weapons directed against symbolic targets.

    Today’s Radical Islam is equal to pre war Imperial Japan.

    Really? Terrorists have no Navy, no army capable of holding any hostile territory. They can not operate on any sort of equal footing with us, not even on their ‘home turf’. Japan thought they could, but they miscalculated the rage of an angry Republic. It’s ironic that we used the bomb against them, if you think about it.

    It’s okay if a Republican does it.
