    Sorry. I don't where to take this. You've put a lot of words in my mouth.

    I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you didn't read my post or understand it. The alternative is to say that you're purposely twisting my words to win an argument based on emotion.
    I'd like to think that's not the case.

    It's quite possible that I misunderstood something...I wrote as I understood it. If I misunderstood you and posted about something you did not say, I apologize...
    I admit that I'm being little too emotional...not just about this, but about many things...It's a specific type of illness common for the Balkans...But I would never twist anyone's words in order to win an argument...I don't see a reason for that.
    And I certainly didn't mean to offend you or anyone. If I did, I'm sorry.

    No worries. It's already forgotten.

    Ha! I know it well! My father was Mediterranean, and I've worked with Yugoslavians (back when it was Yugoslavia), Albanians, Italians, Greeks...
    The good thing is after you leave the table screaming, you greet each other with an embrace the next day.

    DARN!!!! You DO know us! That happens here like every day!... And yes, we do a LOT of screaming at each other...actually, we are not screaming, we are cursing! For example, Serbian language has an enormous number of curses...it's like a language on its own! A Serb can curse you for 12 straight hours without REPEATING a curse!!! Now, who else on this planet can do something like that! Macedonian is little mellower...they can curse you for about 4-5 hours...
    We do not hold grudge. Just imagine: we drink 2-3 liters, we start arguing about soccer or politics or whatever most insignificant and stupid thing we can find, we start cursing each other (sometimes a slapping or gentle boxing comes into play...just for recreational purposes), then we leave the table quite demonstratively (trying to keep balance, but the bloody floor keeps jumping in our faces), and with any luck, we sleep it over in our bed (or in any bed we find...).
    If we held grudge, we would exterminate each other in few months!... [beer]
    One of the most disturbing things about this illness is that it causes irreversible short-term memory loss...
    Fortunately, treatment for this illness has not yet been found, and all researchers have been caught and accounted for...They will be prosecuted...maybe...if we remember where we locked them up... :D

    I agree with one thing in this.... Ahmadinijad is *****n batty. I mean absolutely crazy. Anyone that has ever listened to him in multinational meetings understands this. I mean like definably crazy. Like in need of serious meds and years of help before recovery. And I don't even believe in 85% of mental cases.

    I'm all about national sovereignty, but allowing him nukes is like giving a schizo a loaded gun. It's only a matter of time before a playground of innocent children end up dead.

    In then, it's as Fort said, we all get dragged into it.

    Even if he is crazy, do you think that his generals would obey him if he tells them to launch without any reason? Do you believe that they are all crazy in Iran? I don't think so. But what would happen if they get attacked? THEN the generals just might obey him and launch!
    And what happens if he dies naturally before he makes the bomb and new sane president comes? Or he is assassinated in few months?
    And what happens if suddenly presidents of US or Israel go mad? Or Russia? Or any other country that has nukes? What if one of them is absolutely crazy, and going crazier by the hour, but he hides it well? We had a case like this in my own country!!! A crazy prime-minister!
    I'm sorry, but I just can't agree with you here...These are all ASSUMPTIONS and not FACTS!
    I also don't think that a crazy guy is more dangerous with a gun then sain guy with a gun. In this day and age, how do you determine who is sane?
    The previous US president killed thousands of his own people...Is that sane? You have cases in the news from all over the world of good, decent, normal people suddenly turning mass murderers.
    Just the assumption that he might be crazy, and that he might do something someday to someone is not enough for me...because those kinds of assumptions can later give justification to governments to do whatever they want to whoever they want...And that is just wrong and evil.

    Yeah it doesn't look good at all. Iran on the chopping block is one thing by itself, but on top of what has already been instigated will undoubtedly be the straw that broke the camel's back economically once the Yew ess of Aye gets involved. Only a fool wages war on two fronts, and it takes the king of all idiots to make war on three.

    Right...but then again, WHY waging war in the first place?
    Just imagine with all those billions spend on war, US could have helped millions of people...and its own citizens (social, medical...). US could have been truly the world leader but in a good, prosperous way, and American nation would have been praised and not condemned around the world...

    Because when the great giant rears its ugly head, the USA will not be able to single-handedly fend off an all out world war. Because it is strategically imperative (for the bankers) to destabilize the USA so they can usher in radical transformation by means of a N.American currency "Amero", or whatever they choose to name it. Because it is necessary to build up the Russian/Chinese communist empires in secret and create a false sense of security than to assume traditional roles. Because the PEOPLE are the target and must be reigned in, so the active use of corporate sponsored terror15m whittles away at individual sovereignty and liberty until one day the world wakes up to a single, omnipotent tyrannical empire enforcing its will -and by then it will all be too late.

    It's called a Kansas City shuffle. We look one way at the diversion while the blitz runs in and chops off our head.

    Do you think that Russia and China plan to attack US? I'm not quite sure I got your meaning... Do you think they plan to destroy US and Ru/Cn to rule the world? When you say people must be reigned in, you mean US people or all people? Do you think that this Iran thing is just a diversion for something else? I'm asking all this because I'm not sure that I understood you right...

    When have we ever launched an unprovoked, pre-emptive strike? This whole idea is reverse saber rattling like Amahdouchbag's and Chavez's ravings. A bloody waste of time; just headline grabbing.

    I don't even want to discuss this...could get ugly.

    I'm out of this thread...not healthy...

    Yes.

    History tells me that they will. Remember a little thing that happened in Nazi Germany in the 30s-40s? [beat]

    All this "let it be" sh*t only works in a black and white fantasy world. Unfortunately life isn't that way. It's various shades of gray.
