  1. Bibi's words have no weight or credibility. He is just a slimey salesman who has been crying about how Iran is a few months away from nuclear weapons since the early 90's. The rest of the quotes you have posted do not discount what I posted earlier, which is that the Iranians are not 'crazy' or irrational. The truth is that you cannot have a militarily aggressive country like Israel, who is not willing to sign the NPT or allow inspections of their nuclear weapons and expect its neighbours to sit silent. Threats and sanctions did not stop Iran's nuclear program. It increased it. We're now se
  2. Bush Jr. should apologize to Daddy. So should Cheney and Rumsfeld. He was right and they were wrong. Empires usually fall after they arrogantly expand and spread themselves thin. The short-sighted policy always prove to be unsustainable. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld have weakened America.
  3. Iraq could be on its way to being Syria #2. It looks like Iran is reaching out to the U.S. to assist them with the Al Quaeda problem. Just like they did with Afghanistan. Iran offered the same collaboration in Afghanistan after 9/11. The Bush administration blew it. Maybe this administration will make the correct decision this time. Exclusive: Alarmed by Iraq, Iran open to shared role with U.S. - Iran official Tehran is open to the possibility of working with the United States to support Baghdad, the senior official said. "We can work with Americans to end the insurgency in the Middle East
  4. The previous administration was all about the bumper sticker slogans. It started when he prematurely claimed "Mission Accomplished". Throwing your hands in the air and blaming the doomed policy started by the previous administration on Obama is not an honest way to look at the situation. All you are doing is feeding your need to partisanship.
  5. Of all the four countries: North Korea, Pakistan, Iran and Israel, only Israel has been getting into wars with its neighbours, consistently for the past 40 years. The circumstances of each of those have varied but an identity has been formed: Israel is a militarily aggressive country. Sure, the powerful PR machine has successfully painted the picture of a country cornered by aggressive, Jew-hating countries; case in point: "eliminate all traces of Israel and all traces of the Jewish population from the planet. Period." However, these claims are contrary to reality for several reasons. One bein
  6. You may think that, but both U.S. and Israeli officials have said that Iran is a "rational player". These are generals who know more than puppet politicians who are paid by lobby groups to tell tales to fit a narrative and an agenda. The former head of Israel's intelligence service believes the Iranian regime is a rational one - Link I agree with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey who described Iran as a "rational actor" on my program a couple of weeks ago. - Farid Zakaria on General Dempsey Pakistan, North Korea and even Israel are what we should be worried abo
  7. The above is a misinformed comment. Iran and Taliban are rivals and see each other as enemies. I rather see an Iran friendly government then a government controlled by al quaeda and other extremist group. The U.S. would be wise not to support Saudi and their terrorist groups like Al Quaeda.
