    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?

    Sigh… What can Iran do to the U.S.? No, really. What can they REALLY do to the U.S.? Can they destroy New York? No. Is it possible they could do that at some point in the future? Yes. Is there evidence they are going there, or even getting there? No. And if they would get there and actually would destroy New York, what would be the answer? Right!

    The United States has survived an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation with the Russians for 40 years or so, and only by the grace that Boris Yeltsin was sober one evening the world is still the way it was (he told his generals “Nyet” when they wanted him to launch the missiles). Iran, Syria, North Korea – they know full well what would happen if they really p*** you guys off. As Walter White aka Heisenberg said: “Treat lightly…” :-)

    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.

    Chamberlain did seek to buy time. Britain’s army was relatively small and well dispersed. The French had already caved in on the Ruhr, allowing the then small German army to take it back unopposed. I am sure that told the Brits a lot about what kind of support they could expect from the French, despite the French Army being the largest in Europe (even at the outbreak of war).

    Of course some people forget so quickly that it was Obama who wanted to charge into Syria, but he had virtually no support, except from … wait for it…. the French.

    One important difference between Chamberlain and Obama. We do have a large military with the ability to strike anywhere in the world.

    But of course, just like Chamberlain, that pacifist Obama has after all, never launched drone attacks at targets in other countries, or sent military teams to take out or capture important enemy personnel. Or at least that is what certain cretins see as the truth.

    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”.

    @DrCanuck

    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.
