You may be right on that but..
"Obama threatens Iran in UN speech "

“That is why a coalition of countries is holding the Iranian government accountable. And that is why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” the president added.
Even though Obama said that he believes in peaceful resolution of the Iranian nuclear crisis, he also underscored that the time is not "unlimited." And if diplomacy doesn't succeed, the US “will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon." The Nobel Peace Prize laureate didn't say the word "war" but his intentions — and the urging from Israel — are all too apparent.

I think it's funny how a peacekeeper instigates so much violence.

Not "funny" funny, but hypocritical funny.

Bush put the price on 4,488 American lives.

How many American soldiers lost their lives under Clinton's direction?

Hi Christine
If I can maybe add this sentence to you post:
Just because we MAY say something, does not mean that we SHOULD.
As civilized human beings, we should be able to voice differing opinions or make videos without fear of some rabid idiot trying to kill us for it.

He says that as if the Christian Crusades are still happening. Someone needs to let go of the past and focus on the now.

Certainly.

IMHO, the two bring different skills to the table. Both enormously gifted and both tactical nukes on the pitch.

I would rate Messi as probably the best purely offensive weapon. However, I would give Ronaldo all round higher marks. Messi has been exposed in the past - his size makes him a weak defender. Not the case with Cristiano Ronaldo; the lad is big and strong and will not be pushed around.

But to be honest, I have not seen performers like them ever before. They are better than anything the past 20 years have produced; better than Zidane, Beckham, Ronaldinho, Pirlo, Costa, Figo, Raul, Morientes, Nedved, Giggs, Forlan, Veron, Henry, van Nistelrooy, Kaka.

I have die hard friends - United supporters since the Busby area, that claims that Ronaldo is better than even the great George Best

Funny how the tea baggers can't ever attack what I say, they have to invent something I did not say and attack that.

If you want to compare apples to apples, darling, then compare the records of Christians to Muslims and Muslims to Jews, and Jews to Christians.

You don't get to pick and choose pieces of the records.

Try to think of it this way: Just because you have a right to pick your nose in a public, does not mean it is appropriate.

I go back to the Pele days--he was my hero. Messi and Ronaldo are superior, not just to him but to anybody else who has ever played the sport. BTW, I'd add Platini, van Basten and Cruyff to any list of the best of the best.

Draft dodger Romney has called for a preemptive war with Iran.
You can't seriously compare Romney's position with Obama's?
No, he hasn't.

You are a bald-faced liar.

And a draft dodger.
