Thank GOD a reasoned approach to Iran. The days of talking to people and working out compromises is SO overrated. I mean look what it did for us in the Cold War....wait, we did talk to the USSR and the Cold War ended.....hmmm.

Just remember Hitler justified the invasion of Poland to the Reichstag as a pre-emptive strike to protect Germany: no joke.

This guy is a fascist. Period. I hate the fact that I have to share a country with this guy, and it gives me all the more incentive to leave.

But he's obviously a Serious Thinker.

At least he's willing to be videotaped for the museum vaults.

Eh. When you're a gazillion years old, your prostate is acting up, you got one foot in the grave, and your doctor doesn't even know what's keeping you going any more, what do you have left to look forward to except bombing the shit out of some hapless country because you can? And you don't give a shit about the consequences either, 'cause you prolly won't live long enough to see 'em!

For those of you who think this old man is wrong, you need to open your eye's. There are facts surrounding the need to wipe IRAN from the face of the planet. I don't mean military force, I mean complete and total inhalation.

1. Every Friday on Iranian television millions see the mass demonstrations chanting "Death To America"

2. This has occurred every Friday after morning prayers for 27 years. Think about that, you have an entire generation that grew up under this campaign from infancy to adulthood.

3. Iran has only one solution to deal with you, DEATH! They do not engage in political chicanery, they hate you personally and want to remove your head from your body. Period, end of story.

Wake up you insulate children, you have better get a resolve to protect your life and that of your children, before you are staring at the edge of a knife on your neck wondering why can't we just talk this over. Other's have made this mistake in the past and that thought ended when the cutting began.

This blame lies squarely on the American University System. You have allowed your youth to be corrupted by anarchist and hater's of the successful. Since they themselves, can not survive in a world where they are responsible for their own success, they need protection and power over ignorance that does not know reality from a world where everyone has the same ideals and are respectful of diversity. The real world does not care about your feelings, words you say or do not say, or even you.

You need to learn to fight, since you have been told your whole life that it is wrong. You have become sheep and will be slaughtered if you continue down this path.

In the end, only you can protect yourself. It is not the job of the police or the government to protect you, sure they protect society, but not you the individual. Yes they will probably apprehend the person who kills you, but they can not stop them from doing the act unless they are there. Go to the door and look to see if your personal police officer is there?

P.S. If they are there you probably need to lay down since a warrant is about to be severed, or you are in jail. In which case you are probably already lying down since your cell mate, who also does not care for you, has just taken your self worth and respect.
