    What is "dumb" diplomacy?

    Do you advocate an attack?

    Dumb diplomacy is invading a country that is no threat to us and wasting $700 billion dollars and 4,000 American lives to set up a Shia government allied with Iran.

    Dumb diplomacy elevates enemies to equality. How's that working out for you or 'the world?' Just how is Iran having the bomb going to help the environment? Health Care? What happens if they decide to sell/give to Syria? Just enough...

    It's working out really well, thank you.

    Hezbollah lost the election in Lebanon, the Pakistanis are attacking the Taliban, and the mullahs are in trouble in Iran.

    You really don't know much about the world, do you?

    You should be looking in the mirror when you say things like this.

    You are still ducking the question. You are not happy with Iran...what do you propose to do?

    How about we call them names? Axis of evil didn't work, have any good ones?

    It's something else other than what the Obama admin is doing now, silly!

    And if they start doing someting else, that will somehow be wrong, too. ;)

    It is time to make Iran put up or shut up! Its time to make them keep their promises to us and the rest of the world or make them pay the consequences. We have been kind for to long to a country that smiles in are face then conspires to rid the world of America. I think if Iran continues to act like a school child being ignored when we do finally have to give them are attention we should give them the spanking they have been asking for. Are foreign policies are becomes impotent due to the fact that countries like Iran continue to make a fool out of us. There was a time when the rest of the world may not have liked us but if they choose to work with us they at least respected the treat of conflict with us. Now it seems that are foreign policies are not upheld by are allies nor feared by are enemies. Lets draw a line the sand at least on issues that effect are safety.
