    Hey just think. When the GOP regain power, they will start a war with Iran (totally unfunded of course). Then they will draft all the poor people to fight(die) in the war (just like the GOP wants) and give "no bid" contracts to the rich people. Killing two birds with one stone!!! Then we can use Iran's oil to pay for the war. And when the war is over, Iran will sell us cheap oil!!! Just like Iraq........Oh wait........Never mind.

    It is their right as a free nation to have nuclear power just as America and Israel do. It is so sad to see that America is willing to get into another war for Israel. Pathetic, really, that they would sacrifice more soldiers and money for the brute Israelis. And who knows what kind of long term repercussions this will have on us all? Secret allies, hidden bombs... They should be very careful before they step into a nuclear disaster. I advise that the USA should mind its own business and take care of themselves before they take care of other nations. Israel needs to take a step back and re evaluate this whole situation.

    Who do we attack next?china, north korea,india, pakistan,?This whole paranoid concern about nukes and iran does not make sense at all.WHY WOULD IRAN OR ANY OTHER NATION LAUNCH AN attack on the u.s. knowing full well we have thousands of nukes capable of wiping out a whole nation with one concentrated attack.The real threat are the fanatical terrorist who are willing to die in any effort to hurt the USA and our knukes ARE USELESS AGAINST THEM.We should worry more about them than any threat posed by Iran's posession of nukes.When it comes to reality we all know that their reason for wanting nuke capabilities is more to discourage our leaders from invading their countries in view of our history of invading other countries for regime change or any other excuse that comes to mind.

    They probably already have them. Israel has nukes , so what is the problem -he wants to protect his country from Isreaeli and US aggression. If Kadhafi had nukes it would not be such an easy invasion of Libya. Why can't people live in peace ? Oh, maybe it is about oil. All I know is that we had wars since 1945 almost nonstop-something is wrong with this picture-we are broke.

    Who gives US the right to invade Iran? Who gave US the right to invade Iraq?

    Chemical weapons in Iraq? Yeah right. Nukes in Iran? Yeah right.

    How much oil does Iran have? Hmmm...a lot?

    Is Iran one of the few, or the only country in the Middle East, that's independent, regarding it's natural reserves? HELL YEAH!!!

    Democracy? Human rights? LOL. Only fools believe that.

    If the Iranians will predictably respond to the deterrence of 'mutually assured destruction' then the nukes are no threat. That's the big question. We have nukes too after all.
