It is good we are in Iraq, because we are right next door to Iran. This makes an invasion much easier.
What Iran is doing is only logical. a) they see that their neighpor got invaded preemtively by the US on false charges adn b) nuklear weapons is the only defense the US respects.

Had Iraq not been invaded there would not have been any need for Iran to go down the nuklear path, considering embargos, trade sanctions and such. President Hamid considers himself doing this in self defence.

It is worth noting that Hans Blix former chief of UN weapons inspection has suggested that Iran drop their nuklear plans in exchange for guarantee by USA that they will not be invaded. USA is not interested.

Iran must be the next Middle Eastern Country to remove thier radical regime. We do not need Nation State sponsors of International Terrorism.

I propose 2/3 of the iranian army to be taking out. All military assets from Iran destroyed, all nuclear weapons manufacturing terminated and destroyed, via force if necessary. Further I propose removing the radical regime, which has sent insurgents into Iraq to destabilize the government there and kill US Troops. This must be done to balance the region, since we cannot talk any sense into the Iranian fanatical fundamentalist regime there. So be it.

Good idea. Give the President of Iran an RPG and strap him to the Chinese Missile and allow President Bush to fly an F-106 Delta Dagger, equipped with the latest net-centric battlespace displays and technology and see who wins? If President Bush misses for some reason and the rocket keeps going it will be 72 Virgins for the President of Iran and a mushroom cloud from the special club he just joined.
Sorry, Lt. Bush turned in his wings rather than take the cocaine blood test. This was shortly before he went AWOL.

He never reported, and is still AWOL.

He could be strapped to an old Nike-Hercules, though.

How about we negotiate full access for inspectors and let a strong enough economic base form in the country that will empower those in business to make it easier to kick the fundamentalists out of power. Remember their is a large fairly secular Iranian population that is getting as tired of the idiots running their country as we are of the idiots running ours.

Single bullet to regime change first? Then perhaps then they re-install moderates, who get the program. Right after we take our nuclear weapons manufacturing and all these new high-tech weapons.

That is an excelent idea, so you mean that your "one man nation" is going to start:

Although the meaning of the word democracy is universal, but the true meaning of a “functioning democracy” starts at home, if there are no signs in ethical and its social principals - understanding, and when a government calls itself a “democracy” yet there is no such writing in its constitutions’ then its lying and sooner or later such regime forced to become either a totalitarians or a militarism force which in this case have to start wars to survive, USA and Israel is a one as such. and then prosecute those that started the war in Iraq?

"Western Democracy; I think it would be a good idea" - Ghandi.

If the Iranian people do not remove this radical regime, their civilization will further decline, until one day the regime does something so stupid that another nation or nations has to step in and make things right. At that point crap will hit the windmill and then when the smoke clears and the dust settles, indeed they can take back their nation from these fanatical folks and bring it back to what it was, even better.

But until that day we have a menace and a danger to the free world, as the Iranian current leadership is sponsoring international terrorist groups, sending insurgents into Iraq to kill US troops and manufacturing nuclear weapons? Oh isn't that the epotime of righteousness? Ehy boys? You sure you support that, you sure seem to. Listen to your dribble as you support international terrorist regimes. You do not actually believe this hokum you purport do you?

I admit there is some work to do. Perfection is a moving target indeed. But I rather fancy the USA as a wonderful place to live with freedom and liberty and it is a breath of fresh air, with clean water too. After getting home from travels I always am thankful that I live in the Greatest Civilization ever createdin the history of mankind. Sure India cool, I just prefer the cury-less fresh air. The UK is fine, if you do not have to pay to Chunnel it or the ferry? I guess you could swim, some of the UK'ers are getting rather hefty like your friends in America.

The regime in Iran may in fact put themselves in a position where the world or a majority of it will decide that it needs to be put in its place.

I have seen plenty of example in posts critcising our methods and the Administration, even the odd overseas hate post but your generalisations and outright lies that the people that disagree with you are support the Iranian regime or the old Iraq regime or terrorist regimes are ludicrous on a good day and undermine the occasional intelligent observation or comment you make. You think some of us seem to support this regime? Maybe in your fantasies you hear voices you are attributing to our posts.

Well to that I say, I think my response to the personal character assissinators here, is a mirrored response of them calling me a Hitler because I favor prevention of Nuclear Weapons with this current regime, as they are sponsoring international terrorism and promising to blow Israel off the map. So, I would say that such comments towards the fellow bloggers who do more slandering than discussion, are to blame for my purposeful mirrored and reciprocal response. The voices thing I am working on, have an appointment with a Beverly Hill Shrink next Wednesday at 3:30 PM. Nice lady.

Because the peoples will not tolerate naked plutocracy, power is nominally
turned over to them, while real power rests in the hands of the plutocrats. In
democracies, whether republican or monarchical, the statesmen are marionettes,
and the capitalists are the wire pullers: they dictate the political guidelines,
they control the voters by buying public opinion, through business and social
connections [they control] higher government officials

Your comments seemed to me to be inclusive of a larger group of commentors and consistent enough with some of your more acidic posts that it included a larger group than your qualified statement indicates.

There is a constant assumption amongst some conservatives that criticism of any kind makes you a traitor when in fact it means that by the exercising of your rights to inform the powers that be that you believe they are straying from the principles on which our country was founded and by which you have lived by as a citizen and a patriot of this country.
