    First: nobodies building nukes that big anymore. Second: we need to focus more on folks WITH nukes, rather than those with POTENTIAL to develop them. Israel’s and “Righties” claims that Iran is just two months away from a bomb, which they’ve been yelling for over TWO DECADES! needs to be reconsidered.


    The “smart thing” would be let them have commercial use, just like Japan, Germany, France, and many other “friendlies” with supervision (that Israel refuses to accept), and let them use the power, and sell US the oil!


    OUR PEOPLE screaming "DEATH TO IRAN’ are just as extreme as the MINORITY in Iran yelling down with American, like for all our interventions in their affairs?

    Everyone who goes to casinos knows that the averages have to work out. If you watch for a roullette wheel that’s spun 10 reds in a row, it’s 1000 to 1 that it will spin red again, so you can bet all your money on black with complete confidence that you’ll win.


    Year after year, the best experts in Israel and the US have known for certain Iran will have a bomb within a few months. So now, just like that roulette wheel, it’s sure to happen if the US doesn’t bomb IMMEDIATELY!


    Now please avoid talking to anyone who knows any maths or statistics. We have irrefutably proved that it’s essential to attack Iran. Don’t go allowing facts to get into the way of an irrefutable proof.

    Two sources EVERYONE should read before commenting: First, the London Economist who says the deal makes it much harder for Iran to build a bomb.


    Also read Stratfor out of Austin, who says Iran doesn’t have enough fissile material to build a bomb. And it ain’t possible without enough fissile material.

    Where in America do people assemble and scream, “Death to Iran”? I must have missed that one.

    Pauley: you obviously haven’t been listening to any Republicans in the body called “Congress” in the last decade, or TEA party gatherings, or JBS posters online, and around the country, or those folks in love with the MIC, or Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, shall I go on?? Oh, yeah, then there’s McCain, but he seems to be back on meds.

    @dtroutma “…we need to focus more on folks WITH nukes, rather than those with POTENTIAL to develop them.”"

    This is akin to saying that we need to only (selectively) enforce the laws against homicide after the fact, rather than try to prevent homicides.

    You are defending the indefensible. The Democratic Party is like a mule – with blinders.

    I see you can type rhetoric now how about posting some recorded proof.

    Blitzer just interviewed Ehud Barak on the “Iran issue”. Barak had sensible skepticism, and pointed out that it’s what happens behind closed doors in private with the negotiations, NOT what is said in public, that counts. So true, and this from a far more rational former Israeli Prime Minister, than their current one.


    Peaceful resolution, with strength, IS possible, but playing in public with OUR current “public”, is the wrong playground.


    Just a BTW for those who never seem to understand my criticism of Likud and Netanyahu’s current positions, I respect Barak, and like most of what he’s said and done. Israelis in large numbers are also more supportive of peace and common decency, despite the actions of their country at present.

    “Pauley”, do you read what YOU WRITE? You said “death to IRAN”, and I responded with a very searchable list of folks who say bomb Iran into dust.

    A fear over a falsity. No evidence Iran is working on nuclear weapons.
