    More paranoia from the Texas sock-it Mom ?
    Be afraid be very afraid then pass out your revised copies of None Dare Call It Treason to re-make yourself as the crazy lady at the end of the street.
    Fear this fear that the irrational fear of cluelessness strikes again…

    How many decades is it now that “Iran is about to build a nuclear weapon”? Oh, yeah, two decades now. From the NYTimes, January 5, 1995 : “If the Iranians maintain this intensive effort to get everything they need, they could have all their components in two years.” Link: http://www.nytimes.com/1995/01/05/world/iran-may-be-able-build-atomic-bomb-5-years-us-israeli-officials-fear.html

    Lisa, this one needs a college diploma, it’s all grown up.

    What’s old Lisa recommend as an alternative to talking, exactly? Threatening? Bombing? Invading?

    Oh, wait, I know, electing a REPUBLICON President! That’ll make everything WONDERFUL again, just like the fabulous days of Cheney and Bush. Nobody messed with us THEN, by golly.

    A republican president could fix it. We could invade Iran, and complete our list of countries invaded.

    @Ted Lind

    Not too widely reported, quickly disputed by the right-wing deniers, but there was a republican president who was asked to talk and refused. Would it have made a difference? Maybe, but because of He Who Shall NOT be Blamed, we will never know.

    Russia is building the reactors in Iran and supplying the fuel.
    Why are the Iranians building all those centrifuges?
    Why are the Iranians working so hard at developing ICBM’s?
    Like always udopians won’t wake up and pull their head out of the sand til they get bitten on the butt by their willingness to do nothing,see nothing,and hear nothing.
    Then they will blame the republicans.
    They have been following Jonathan Gruber’s advice on voters for a very long time.

    Twenty years and counting. Twenty years of “two years now”. I guess the fable of the boy who cried wolf was just wrong, you can scare people all of the time with the same old s***.

    I am pretty sure this standoff is hurting Iran a lot more than the west. Which isn’t saying much.

    Also, is it not even possible to determine if the Iranians actually are being honest when they say they want to devlope nuclear power for peaceful electrical puposes? And wish to save their considerable oil reserves to sell to the rest of the world for money. I mean, even Muslims need money. Is that not just what even ultra conservatives want, for the market itself to determine just what others do?


    Also. if Russia wants to help them do this, would the Russians possibly also be expecting to gain finacially from their eventual help in doing this? Or have we become so very paranoid about this, that we can not even admit this possiblity?

    @Robert Landers

    As for the Iranians developing a viable ICBM, North Korea is far closer (and already has nukes) to developing such a technology, than is Iran. And North Korea is run by an absolute dictator that has absolutely no desire to better the financial condition of his people. If others here want something actually substantial to worry about, then this is a far greater problem than the Iranians will ever become to the USA!!

    Libs figure we owe Iran a bomb. We have them and Israel has them so it’s only fair the insane Mullahs have one.

    But we can’t do anything about North Korea because they’re backed by China, who own our collective butt.

    Iran’s a much easier target, and Israel would be thrilled if we just wiped them off the map!

    The whole world is laughing at you. Your conservative government is ridiculous and self-defeating.
