    I don’t know, why not give the Iranian government the benefit of a doubt, and make them prove that their nuclear program is for the peaceful generation of electricity alone? After all, the military option by either Israel or the US, or both, will still remain open!

    What’s the rush to bomb? Any of these Toonist people ever been to war? Or lost someone to war? Is butchering up a scapegoat country with scapegoat military personnel every couple of years the only way to sell the Toonist ‘news?’

    Uranium needs to be at 5% for power generation. Iran has already consentrated Uranium to 20%.
    that is well on your way to developing a bomb.

    The sanctions started years ago, the first under Carter, who seized every Iranian dollar in the US. Reagan did a lot of trade with Iran to support the Contras, which worked out well, since the Contras, with US support paid for with Iranian money, won.


    Obama tightened the sanctions. The international banking system is closed to Iranians, so it’s hard for them to engage in any international trade. They were using hawala under Bush, jr, but Obama threatened to sanction anyone who traded with Iran. Then to sanction anyone who traded with anyone who traded with Iran. Finally, they couldn’t even sell oil to China or buy Chinese stuff.


    Obama promised to give the Iranians back $4 billion OF THEIR OWN MONEY if they would allow an army of UN inspectors, 24/7 CCTV monitoring, destroy all their 20% uranium, most of their centrifuges, and their heavy water research lab.


    The London Economist said that would be enough to prevent development of a bomb.


    So the cage needs CCTV and UN guards all around it. Hard to see how the ape got past them.


    The exact amount of U235 needed for a bomb is not known, but Stratfor of Austin, TX says Iran does NOT have quite enough for a critical mass. They might be doing everything they can to build a bomb, but without a critical mass, they cannot. Pakistan and North Korea (and there’s some question whether North Korea really has a bomb) had lots of help from someone who wanted to use them as cats’ paws. Iran ain’t getting no help from no one. So for Iran, that ‘critical mass’ problem won’t go away the way it did with Pakistan (and maybe North Korea).

    Where did the sheets come from. Are they starched enough to lean against the cliff for climbing? Or did the “exhibit” climb to the top, tie off the sheet-rope, climb back down and then climb back out? Or was the sheet-rope provided by someone outside source, in which a case, why didn’t they use a rope ladder?
    Sloppy sloppy sloppy.

    @Michael wme

    Right, and that is why they have the center fuses and built the bunkers under mountains. And just what do they need Nuclear power anyway? They have enough oil for 200 years. They also don’t have any environmental weenies crying about global warming. In fact they have a cure for global warming it is called Nuclear winter for Israel. And when they get done with the little Satan they will come after the big Satan. But what do I know, I am a heretic in the church of global warming and an infidel to the Radical Muslims who populate those countries.
    The sanctions were working but Obama could not find another Muslim Brother Hood backed “democrat elected” or mob rule, dictators like he did in Egypt. So he is sending Kerry over to the power keg. Maybe we will get lucky and Putin will step in again and keep something from going boom.

    Typical liberal, “The conservitives want war cus they don’t do want Obama to succeed. duuuh”
    How about I do not want failure therefore I do not want Obama to keep making the mistakes he has since day 1. Obama has done NOTHING in the middle East expect turn it into a powered keg! HE id the reason we are Close to WAR in many countries! Do you really think that Year of the “democratic elected” Muslim brotherhood Egypt was a good thing? Obama supported it? Obama is Nev Chamberlain! Worse then that he has snubbed our allies! He has 0 credibility on the world scale! Putin and China are eating the USA’s lunch on a world scale as a direct result of Obama’s incompetence! And you are still blaming “conservatives who want to go to war”? HOW? by not backing Obama and the purple band-aid guy us, who are not Obama sycophants, want to prevent the middle East from going boom!

    Let’s see what Bush and Cheney did to keep us safe from Iran; oh yes, they took out Saddam.

    Well, Reagan kind of forgave the Iranians by having Michael Ledeen broker a deal with Israel to give them weapons. You remember Ledeen, the man who denies he forged the “yellow cake” documents, that were used as propaganda to go into Iraq.

    FACTUAL comment from you is impossible, I have only two words for you,

    SPELL CHECK!"
    How about this, I will start spell checking when you start fact checking as to what your chosen one has done to our standing on the world scale. Here is what I am afraid of. Obama is now so desperate to have a legacy he is willing to sell Israel out alone with any other allies we once had. His FAILURE of Obamacare is so complete that he is going to stir up a honest nest like Clinton bombing an aspirin factory to wage the dog. But this time instead he will start off the next World War.
    I mean really Obama can claim something, out of everyone in the world France was willing to step up, and Obama’s so incompetent That Israel is now talking with Sadie Arabia, against us, but it is something. So hopefully it will not be another FAIL like Obama with Egypt.
