Ongoing now. Tune it in.

He is describing the history of people trying to annihilate Jews, reciting quotes from Iran's recent leaders saying they want to do exactly that, pointing out example after example of Iran and other dictators reneging on their word to play nice and restrict their nuclear research... all in the last ten years.

He stated flatly that the greatest threat to the United STATES and Israel, and the rest of the world, is a marriage between a fanatic militant Jihadi state, and nuclear weapons.

Pointed out that just because Iran is helping us fight ISIS, that doesn't mean they are our friend. They and ISIS are competing for the title of Supreme Islamic Jihadi State. "If you defeat ISIS but let Iran get the Bomb, you win the battle but lose the war."

And he hasn't said a word about attacking Iran or any offensive military operations by the West.

Tune it in.

Why can't Western leaders be this cognizant and frank?

So, what does he want us to do for him in regards to Pakistan?

The United States feels just as strongly about not letting Iran get the Bomb. Our two countries just have different ideas of how to achieve it.

What's more, it is not a foregone conclusion Iran would use the Bomb if they acquired one. We lived under the umbrella of a nuclear USSR, the world would not end with a nuclear Iran. Much of the pants-shitting over Iran is hyperbole.

Obama doesnt care if Iran gets a bomb. His actions show that.
IRan is not the USSR. Iran is a state sponsor of terrorism and has been for decades. It is run by jihadi nutjobs who wont hesitate to use nukes.

Cuz many of them haven't been targeted as much as the Jews have they don't get it.

That's a good question.

India and Pakistan are mortal enemies the same way Iran and Israel are. India and Pakistan both have nukes.

Israel has nukes.

A nuclear Iran would not be good, but it does not automatically follow that nuclear war would result.

The USSR was not a state sponsor of terrorism?

You are parroting brainless axioms.

Thank you for providing the hyperbole of which I just spoke.
Seriously? Bibi laid out the case. He is right. Iran tweets about destroying Israel. Does India talk about destroying Pakistan?

Iran does want to annotate Israel. And they probably want to annotate the USA because we support Israel.

Not really, no. Certainly not the same way. The countries arent comparable in the least.
Wow. Now THAT is certainly the most ignorant thing said on this forum this year. And that is really saying something.

The USSR was the mother of state sponsors of terrorism.

You are correct the countries aren't comparable, but for the exact opposite reason you think.

You operate under the assumption that the Iranian government would be as rational as the old Soviets were. There is also a question of the differences between the amount of nukes the soviets needed to blast the US and Europe to nuclear dust and the much much much smaller number of successful detonations Iran would need to decimate (in the classical sense) the Israeli population. Remember most of their Jewish population is centered around Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Discounting that the Iranians would not hit Jerusalem, even the destruction of Tel Aviv and its immediate suburbs would be a major blow. They might think a first strike would limit the retaliatory strike ability, or even think the West would force a "fait accompli" and just make Iran a pariah for a decade or so "for show"

Again, you can't think like yourself here, you have to think like they would.

Wow. You really have no idea, do you.

India and Pakistan trade threats regularly. Particularly over Kashmir.

Smart people look at two similar things and see the differences.
Stupid people look at two similar things and see similarities.
I see which one you are.
