    The clock started in 2009? Too bad we demonstrated our “Strong Stick” in Iraq earlier.

    Iran would like to drop a nuclear weapon on Israel but they don’t want to commit suicide. There is no way Iran would ever bomb the U S A, that’s even quicker suicide. Quit trying to rule the world and tell every other country how to act before the U S A is completely bankrupt.

    Try little Satan then on to Big Satan. And you have N Korea.
    MR. Dynamite so called Peace Prize President, what a going to do?
    I said from the start you would make this country less safe in this world. Add China’s hacking and Russians selling arms to anyone against us and we do have a real problem.
    Obama you are a failure on the world front! No one fears us anymore let alone respects the USA. 9 11 13, shows us that!

    What strange logic presupposes that if Iran figures out how to manufacture a nuclear weapon it would be unable to figure out how to deliver it to whatever target it wants?

    And, is it not possible to extrapolate that any country that uses suicide bombing as a tactic would also use suicide bombing as a strategy?

    Mallard Fillmore makes more sense than this ’toon today.

    Mechanic, there are two assumptions you are making that are fallacies. First, it is not necessarily Iran that would be the one nuking us. They would make it and then sell it. Ever heard of a dirty bomb? Or a low-yield Nuke? That’s all it would take to kill hundreds of thousands or millions.

    Locke makes a very valid point: If you can develop a weapon of mass destruction, I’m pretty certain you’d figure out how to deliver it, too. And given our (lack of) border security, my faith is not very high in our ability to defend ourselves from a PBWMD or VBWMD.

    Your second fallacy is that you believe we can shoot an ICBM down, assuming N Korea wants to launch that. Because of Obama’s defunding and disarming of our missile defense shield, our ability to shoot down ICBM’s is horribly diminished. Right now, N Korea has a missile that will reach the midwest. It won’t have a huge payload, to be certain, but it doesn’t take a lot of payload to carry small nukes. And we KNOW they have nukes (3 successful tests now).

    Two different countries, two different warfare styles, and both of which we are ill-prepared to stop. You call it fear-mongering, I call it reality check.

    As Condoleezza Rice put it, ‘for the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud’. She was lying then, Ramirez is lying now.

    The mushroom cloud fear is exactly how they got us into the Iraq war…a war that costed trillions and wasted thousands of American lives…yes they were wasted.

    Little Satan according to radical Islamist, will be taken care on 1st then it is on to Us the USA the big Satan. If you can not understand or even know about that the rest is to far over your head to explain the delicate balance and power keg our world is right now. Obama has done nothing but weaken the USA in the eyes of the world! From our economic stance, being downgraded 1st time in history, to the lasted sequesters with cuts across the board in our defense. Of course Obama would rather cry about sick and poor kids and then shut them out of his house, then worry about the 9 bases that could be shut down.
    Obama is a joke across the world that has made the USA weak in the eyes of those who wish the USA to be taken down. Of course Obama believe the USA is as only as great as we see it just like any any other Nation thinks they are great.

    What about the World Trade Center attack, "
    What about therm? Clinton did what Obama is doing, deny the problems and under fund anything that might protect us. Clinton cut money off and made the alphabet agencies fight among themselves. W inherited a mess.

    @INTUITION

    Yup. Wasted. I’m guessing you’ve never served a day in your life. Because if they were wasted and the wars are so “bad,” why have we been able to sustain wartime operations for going on 12 years on an all-volunteer force? It’s not like we were conscripted or drafted, and it’s not like we didn’t know what we were getting into. Drop the drivel about “wasted lives.” The only way they will be wasted is if comments like yours are given any sort of validation.

    The USA has sold arms without limitations. Blaming Russia for non-allies being armed shows a level of hypocrisy.

    China is not going to attack the USA because of how ingrained the economy is. If China’s economy crashes every model shows that the lid will blow off.

    Tell me what the “real problem” is, when Pakistan managed nuclear proliferation was it a massive problem. And do you think a nuclear bomb, quarter the size of Hiroshima will do a fraction of the damage to the USA that the retaliatory strike would bring upon NK.

    And trust me, having traveled and presently living in Canada, nobody disrespects the USA because it is a weak power. it is disrespected for

    . Outragous gun laws
    . Blamed for propping up dictators
    . Blamed for genocide
    . Blamed for displacing governments
    . Blamed for having military bases in over 100 countries, believe it or not other countries take it as an offense to sovereignty that the american forces refuse to leave

    Not when it would mean having every believer in Allah (men, women, and even children) in your country obliterated with vast amounts (far, far more than your country is capable of at best) of nuclear weapons. A single suicide bomber is bad enough, but an entire nation of tens of millions of human beings committing suicide is simply unthinkable!!
