“If I were Iran, if I were Iran—a crazed fanatic, I’d say let’s get a little fissile material to Hezbollah, have them carry it to Chicago or some other place, and then if anything goes wrong, or America starts acting up, we’ll just say, “Guess what? Unless you stand down, why, we’re going to let off a dirty bomb.” I mean this is where we have—where America could be held up and blackmailed by Iran, by the mullahs, by crazy people. So we really don’t have any option but to keep Iran from having a nuclear weapon.”
The answer as to who and for all the cash prize, Mitt Romney.
MM, I am not sure what your reaction is to this post, but what he's saying is true. Can anybody say that scenario is not possible? Because that is how our intelligence community is thinking as well as Obama, they need to lose their job and lose it quickly.
I maintained the belief that Iran already has a nuclear weapon, it may only be one or two, but I think they have one. I do believe when they get to what they believe is the appropriate number, as they themselves do not use it they will either give or sell it to a terrorist organization that will. The problem with nuclear weapons is that people think the only way to deliver them is by a missile. There are many scenarios under which a nuclear weapon can be detonated and transported without a missile. It is very possible to put one of these in a motor vehicle, hide in an empty warehouse, or wherever, and whether by suicide bomber or remote the bomb to be detonated.
With all the rhetoric from Ron such as wipe Israel off the face of the planet and you'll pay any organization that attacks the United States, not to mention all the ties they have with Hamas and other organizations, Romney is correct in saying we really do not have any option but to keep ran from having a nuclear weapon.
Fair enough, AV.
I don't think any of us wants Iran to have nuclear weapons. Period.
I believe we all understand that any ME country can support, harbor, arm, etc. radical terrorist groups.
Now, how does this comment square -- or not -- with Romney's "kick the can down the road" comment on Israel/Palestine relations?
Common denominator being, of course, Israel.
If I were Iran, I would keep on being invisible and gather a maximum of allied countries to support my right to self-determination. In the last non-aligned movement gathering that occured in Tehran most of the participants saw Iran as a peaceful country oriented to their economical development far from the "devilized" image given by the US media. The only opposants were the US represented by Ban Ki- moon and Arab countries linked to the US.
If I were Iran, I would attack Israel if it declares war.
Peter Dale Scott and Kevin Fenton wrote a lot about the American ambition in the Middle East and they certify that among the conquests of Iraq, Lybia, Lebanon, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Iran will also be enslaved. It is in their plan.
If I were Iran I'd withdraw from the NPT program until Israel joined. That way, NPT inspectors could not assess the situation or damn me for trying to develop nuclear energy, which is my right. End of double standards, I say!
