Stewart is pretty much always right.
FOX is always wrong.
Personally I don't care one tiny bit if Iran builds a nuclear weapon. Let them build 50,000 for all I care. What will they deliver them with?
North Korean rockets?
Russian surplus rockets?
Camels?
Chinese fireworks?
The only people Iran will ever be able to kill with a nuclear weapon, are Iranians.
When Iran actually has one built, they will have to test it. When Iran blows up a test nuke, then we should do something about it.
Until then they are absolutely no threat to anybody except Iranians.

OMG, you can't be that stupid. If the Iranis can build the bomb you are saying they are too stupid to build a delivery system? You need to be moved to the rubber room.

Building a nuke is pretty straight forward science that you could find on the net. Obtaining the parts and proper grade plutonium/uranium is probably the most difficult parts. The first nuclear weapons are typically very large weapons. So even if you can build a bomb in the lab doesnt mean it is weaponized for ready to be tipped on a missile. And Iranian missiles have very limited range. So yes, they first need to build a bomb (which they have been saying was going to happen for 20 years now) then be able to weaponize it, and finally find a long range delivery system.

But im guessing that if/when they do get a bomb, you will see everyone do a 180 and decide not to mess with them just like north korea. If anything, having a bomb would probably be Iran's best chance to NOT get invaded. Why would they not want one? Why do we continue to make policy where this is their best chance to not get invaded?

This bill will remain a bill unless signed by Obama, right?

If they build it they can sell it to a country having the capability to deliver a weapon. They won't need to do it themselves. And customers won't be hard to locate.

It amazes me you don't realize that.

Very slick journalism, which attempts to double Stewart's assessment of US politics, childish and shallow to say the least. Stewart suggests that our Congress should not consider the relevance of Administration assertions and "deals" with Iran; once his dictator of choice defines a direction; to hell with anyone perceiving a larger threat defined by actual behavior SINCE the Obama/Kerry "deal" undermined Israel.

More centrifuges? Stewart says don't pay attention to that. Iran military commanders proclaiming Iran's right to nuclear armaments? Stewart says don't pay attention. If Obama and Kerry deliver a Munich type agreement further emboldening the very people responsible for renewed destruction and death in Iraq, just think it's funny!

Yep... that's what you get when you elect a Messiah and allow him to put a traitor as Secretary of State, or allow a comedian to define it.
oh that

Iran's new missile technology (at least) is a gift from those giving it to North Korea. Drum roll please! Democrat William Jefferson Clinton and his wife, traitors to humankind and guilty of crimes against humanity.

Ask yourselves... Why do Democrats consistently give aid and support to terrorists and radical Islam, while reversing any gains against those lunatics by others?

Ahh yes, comedian Jon Stewart. Comedy central. The place to get your news. Its no wonder why we (Americans) are always fighting over misinformation and rumors when half our population gets its "facts" from stand up comedians. I might as well check the funny pages to see if i should e-file my taxes or not. After all, Marmaduke knows best right? And people have the balls to wonder why the rest of teh world doesnt take us seriously.

Uh, you do know that North Korea successfully launched a rocket over Japan and put a satellite into orbit, don't you?
I like your tactic though. In the military world they call it the ostrich guard. Put your head in the sand and hope for the best.

Like he said leave it to the congress to try n fck it up. Lol. As if we expect anything less. They can't agree with anyone. We already knew this.

Yall Stewart haters should give his show a chance before u just believe what rolls off of bullsht mountain. Its a refreshing funny take on current events.

@Our gvt at work... That's what makes john Stewart such a worthy guy to get news from. He picks apart and makes fun of the facts. It's unexpected by true. He will dog on whichever side or whatever person needs it. He shows no favoritism whatsoever. Just reports the facts. And instead of just blah reporting, he points out the funny.

That's what the inept in chief does, after he's done apologizing. After all he wouldn't want to offend his loyal followers from the muslim brotherhood.

Yes. he points out the funny. Its his job. Its COMEDY CENTRAL. Its not a reliable news source! thats the point people are trying to make and instead the Libs here are taking his commentary that is written by other comedians as gospel. Its comedy central man. Seriously. Its a funny show. Its not fit for political debate. Its too bad so many adults dont get that.
