    The people of IRAN are very much capable on their OWN to make a regime change. They've always been passionate about their politics. They don't need American bombs and soldiers to make that happen.

    I really like this particular statement from this so-called Iranian Muslim:

    Does this guy have any source for that, or is he willing to admit that it's just his opined belief?

    I think anyone with half a brain would be able to realize that, right now, Iran is more concerned with maintaining their own continued existence in the face of threats of annihiliation from the US and Israel, than some fairy-tale religious-based world domination plot.

    This kind of propaganda is why millions of people die in wars.

    You are right re that statement. It is just opinionated rhetoric with nothing to back it up. Typical right-wing warmonger statement. If all the mullahs believe the same, why were the reformist mullahs defeated in the last election and chastised heavily for their beliefs....

    Oh, IRAN, I read some of the stuff about no alcohol, religious police, no dancing and thought it was Saudi Arabia. There's a lot of invading to be done to fix all these things. And when Islam is sorted I suppose we can all boot out Mugabe next eh?

    Ummmmm... Just wondering how his statement's right. I don't recall Israel ever threatening to destroy Iran. Bush, well... we all know what his and Cheney's verbiage has been. But the Israel comment was just another one of his anti-Israel spewings, IMO.

    THAT sure is the loophole, isn't it? Don't throw a rock at me or I might have to bring out some tanks.


    I take it you gals don't read jpost.com. Did israels proxy war disappointment over the last iranian nuke estimate make you hum the statefarm insurance theme song?

    I assume you are referring to the strike at the facility in Syria? Why do you think Syria buried that site? Why would they do that?

    not especially..

    No, Kath, Im talking about any ole rock throwin that returns a nice 'dozer reaction. You know, subjugating an entire people due to the actions of the drastic minority.

    As for Syria? I've said it before. If I were a muslim nation in close proximity to a nuclear israel and all of it's darling perks i'd want nukes too. Does it really take a mastermind to see the ridiculous nature of israels reactions to being "provoked"?

    phosphorus weapon in Lebanon ring a bell, just for starters?
