The hostility of the 'West', the US in particular will insure Iran will go nuclear, how else will it protect itself and get respect. If Israel attacks it will just take the punishment, but can Israel take the retaliation?

I don't know, but I'll bet the IDF does. The question is will Israelly politicians make the right choice. They believe the US will follow them to war, and that will insure victory. How many of you are willing to pay higher taxes, contribute your children and maybe your life. The choice will be made in Tel Aviv, not Washington.

"It is amazing to see how countries that love to think of themselves as "leaders of the free world" and "beacons of freedom" and all that other feel good propaganda actually do things that obviously hurt not only the people of targeted countries, but also their OWN! All in the name of "freedom and security" for the world from Iran. This is about imperialism at it's core and to ensure Israel remains the only nuclear power in the Middle East"

Of course, like Angry Rick Santorum and Romneycare, the reich wing will complain about the tactic, yet they don't suggest what they would do differently in detail.

You'll hear Angry Rick say "I would enact tougher sanctions."

Romney says "Iran will not get a nuke if I was President" then when asked what he would do, he starts mumbling about listening to the generals, and keeping all options on the table.

Blah blah blah.

Nothing they say translates to anything different than current actions. But the reich wing say "Yeah, Romney would make sure Iran has no Nukes"

Instead, they should cheer the details "Yeah, Romney will listen to the generals and keep all options on the table!"

Yeah, whatever candidates. Sorta like Romney being for a timed withdrawal in Afghan but then being against it when Pres. Obama announced a withdrawal of our troops from the sh1thole meat grinder called Afghanistan.

Obama Foreign Policy Blunders Fueled by Unchecked Ideology

To understand the true nature of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, look where the action isn’t. In Honduras, where his party is still trying to undo the events of 2009, when a pro-Chavez autocrat was constitutionally removed from power and replaced in a democratic election. In Canada, where his administration has blocked the Keystone XL pipeline and prompted our neighbor to turn to China in an effort to market its oil supply.

In Russia, where Hillary Clinton seems to have abandoned her commitment to “reset” relations and is back to condemning Vladimir Putin’s authoritarianism. In Britain, which Obama has snubbed repeatedly, most recently by supporting Argentinian claims that the Falkland Islands are still disputed. At the UN Human Rights Council, which just adopted a report praising Libya’s human rights record under Qaddafi without U.S. objection.

On the front-page issues, Obama has largely been dragged--by military and political necessity--into reversing course and doing the right thing some of the time: keeping the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay open; accelerating the Bush administration’s drone program and anti-terror policies; increasing troop levels in Afghanistan, albeit temporarily; and confronting the naval threat posed by Iran in the Strait of Hormuz.

These gains have been undermined by foot-dragging on confronting Iranian nuclear ambitions; opposition to democracy in the Middle East except where it threatens pro-Western regimes; a sudden withdrawal from Iraq against the advice of U.S. military leaders; a firm deadline for pulling out of Afghanistan, emboldening the Taliban; and, above all, Obama’s mistreatment of Israel, which has only made peace less likely.

The killing of Osama bin Laden was, no doubt, a victory for which Obama can claim credit--with the giant caveat that it would have been impossible without a U.S. presence in Iraq and enhanced interrogation, both of which then-Senator Obama opposed. The clumsy way the administration first pretended bin Laden was not a Muslim leader, then attempted a quasi-Islamic burial at sea, emphasized its underlying policy confusion.

The simple reality is that Obama’s few foreign policy successes have come in cases where he can delegate responsibility to the U.S. armed forces--even if that means evading Congress, as he did in Libya. The true story of Obama’s failures--and his continuing ambition for a humbler America on the world stage--is told at the margins, beyond the media spotlight, where his appointees and ideas have enjoyed a freer hand.

You like that word Reich don't you. Know why? I'll tell you why Nazi. The Liberals are Hitler sympathizers who love to destroy economies and peoples lives while they fiddle with their genitals while Rome burns. You are sick and need serious mental help. Go to any hospital they can help. I suggest you visit a Veterinarian clinic and ask for the 'big sleep' injection. Take a van load of your libtard pals with you too so Earth can breath a little easier.

Is it a little bit sarcasm?
don't forget all these Afghans,Pakistanis and other Yemenis, Syrians, who were directly of indirectly killed by B. Obama and his fellows.
You have had no good president from decades, even no normal president from decades.
Ron Paul would be good president. He is man, who has fought with all these scumbags, who ruin your country (internal enemy ) from years. Maybe as president with normal government, he would have power and he would use it properly. You would have only benefits for your country, if he would win. If you be so kind and give chance for him.
