Well, that's certainly not very long from now!
With his new Secretaries of State and Defense plus his new CIA-Director, the
President is still putting fears into people. Iran may have a nuclear weapon at
sometime but they still need a valid delivery system and process. Thankfully,
we still have an ally in Israel that has lived with fears and trepidation from
their neighbors since 1947 every day. It didn't take long for Pakistan to
speak against our drones with all the debate in the CIA-Director hearings.
Pakistan is just driving the wedge into this administration to help divide our
interests and policies.
I can't believe the words coming out of his mouth.Sad day when
a president can't be trusted.
@JWB:President Obama isn't fear-mongering. He's
delivering a realistic assessment of our risks from a nuclear Iran. While Iran
doesn't have the means to attack the US with a nuclear missile yet, they
are quite capable of delivering one in an attack on Israel or any of the other
nearby countries. Keeping in mind that they follow a religion which now
glorifies suicide, it wouldn't even be necessary for a plane to drop a
bomb. Just fly into the target and detonate the whole thing, plane and all. It
also wouldn't be that difficult for them to load one on a cargo ship or one
of their submarines and take out a shipping port, with its nearby towns and
cities, anywhere in the world. We're still pretty safe here in Utah, but
most Americans don't live here.
Didn't Obama and Biden mock Romney and Ryan for saying that Iran was on the
verge of developing a nuclear weapon?Why is it now that they realize
that Iran is so close to developing a nuclear bomb? It seems like Romney and
Ryan had a better assesment of Iran than team Obama.To "JWB"
all it takes is a truck and a suicide bomber to deliver and detonate a nuclear
bomb. Since the destruction goes for miles, you would definately see a lot of
Hey BO!they are getting closer and closer.You mean your
posture of appeasement and dialogue has not convinced them to stop?
Redshirt;You made my point exactly. This is what Romney told Obama
in the debates, an assertion that Obama decried as fallacious. Liar then, liar
now, liar always.
These are small countries. They don't pose any threat to us---Barrack
As a former nuclear surety officer and one who worked in the Army and Air Force
with nuclear weapons, I know what the process is for classified and unclassified
for dealing with weapons of that nature. The Cold War definitely fine tuned our
skills are dealing with the countries that had weapons of very mass destruction.
They were aimed at our country at specific targets and that is why we had
nuclear treaties and still attempt at doing so. We had significant foes at the
time. We need an executive branch that is knowledgeable and influential in the
world that needs diplomacy, not exhibiting the Jay Leno and David Letterman type
of diplomacy to the world. The world has always had mean guys that
try to thwart peace, freedom, and the liberties that can be available on earth.
One nation, this nation, is the one that has espoused those desires in
people's hearts for over 200 years. We need a President who talks to the
people and not down to the people. We need to stand for the principles of
freedom and not appear to be wishy-washy and give our foes something that they
can chew on.
You still have to deliver a dirty bomb. It is not like a strapped on bomb. The
Mouse that Roared may sound doable but not as doable as you think for a country
such as Korea or Iran. Russian and China don't want those two rogue
countries to start a war, just as we don't want Pakistan or India to start
a war in their region, either.President Carter didn't deal well
with Iran in 1978 - 1981 which brings us to today. We had bigger targets on the
radar at the time. However, Bin Laden and Russian had their significant times
in Iran for 10 years which spring boards for us today with Karzai telling us to
get out of Afghanistan with our tail between our legs.
JWB, Some good insight. I still think it is funny that Obama acted like
they were so far away from a nuclear bomb during his 2012 campaign, but now says
Iran is only a year away. Just another reason not to believe him. I don't
understand how other people do not see it.
Can some one tell me if we attack Iran and a war starts, How are we going to pay
for it? Is it acceptable to borrow another trillion plus dollars from the
Chinese for our grandchildren to pay it off? Will we have wild inflation and
our government inflate the currency?When the Straits of Hormuth are closed
what impact will that have on the price of oil and the economy of the US and the
World?My advise do not plan on our Senators or Congressmen to stop
it. Tell me do any of our representatives have family in the military? I do
not think so.
