If there ever was a way to make an aircraft carrier turn around, this is it.
"Iran warns U.S. aircraft carrier not to return"
http://news.yahoo.com/iran-threatens-ac … 24042.html
I'm guessing those on the aircraft carrier are shaking in their boots, NOT!
Actually they are probably rolling on the floor in laughter.
interesting how? Im American i do not fear Iran. I do however feel ashamed at the way were making them fear us. We have 5115 active nuke weapons . Iran has not one .We have 110 nuke power plants . Iran has 1. Our navy can put Irans navy on the bottom of the ocean with ease . I dont understand this threat . I feel strongly that we need to stop pushing people around.
launch one at someone with thousands? nukes are fubar. no one uses them . why ? cus it defeats any cause that would use one . 1 is to many tho your right . we need to lead thru example . we just sold saudi 30 billion in f 15 jets . thats the proliferation that needs to stop . we sell irans neighbors 80 f15s its ok ?
I understand your reasoning that it would be foolish to launch your only nuke (if they have one) at another country that has thousands. The question is are we dealing with someone who's reasonable? From all indications, no.
What this amounts to is the local school yard bully trying to intimidate the biggest kid on the play ground. Should we be scared? No. Should we be cautious? Yes.
Now, in your opinion, what do you think we should do if Iran is foolish enough to attack one of our ships? Just asking.
""If they impose sanctions on Iran's oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Strait of Hormuz."" These sanctions are an act
of war by the way.
"On Saturday, President Obama took that step and signed crippling sanctions legislation as part of the Pentagon's massive $662 billion 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)."
The west can block Iran's oil exports, but fire
and brimstone if Iran blocks the west's oil exports. Apparently their crime is they are not ruled by a monarchy, like the rest of the gulf states.
Apparently someone missed my earlier post. '"On Saturday, President Obama took that step and signed crippling sanctions legislation as part of the Pentagon's massive $662 billion 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)."'. This is an act of war. The US just declared war on Iran.
a reasonable nation wouldn't hold 5115 active warheads when 100 will suffice . im for leading by example while keeping the power to destroy all and any enemy's we have. hell the world if it need be ,with the drop of a hat . my current idea on this is to offer them at cost. help in building them nuke plants and power grid infrastructure . in return for complete over site of the program
this is a viable achievable idea.
and yourself . sanctions are a attack on civilian populations in my view another thing im tired of my great nation doing .
Perhaps the civilian population will rise up against its government and do away with it, thus doing away with the need for sanctions. I don't agree with them completely either but they are a means to an end. Certainly much better than another war.
When it comes down to it, nothing's ever going to change in the Middle East as they don't want it to. Until we start drilling for our own oil, we'll have to keep sticking our nose in where it doesn't belong.
"complete over site of the program"
"Iran is prepared to give the International Atomic Energy Agency "full supervision" of its nuclear program for five years if UN sanctions are lifted."
"Rather, belligerent threats and U.S. state-sponsored terrorism against the Islamic Republic are part and parcel of Washington's long-standing strategic goal of hegemonic control over the energy-rich regions of Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East."
Hold on here.... are they saying that Iran has developed the power of aquatic navigation?
yourself you know whose energy rich? the united states . im a unilateralist when it comes to over site
Actually free energy has existed for a long time.
"Free energy technology changes the value of money. The wealthiest families and the issuers of credit do not want any competition. It's that simple. They want to maintain their current monopoly control of the money supply. For them, free energy technology is not just something to suppress, it must be permanently forbidden!"
forbid killing another man. ban money . we need neither . i think my answers are better.
confusing the issue with country creed and posturing and pontification will bring about war. one in retrospect we will regret like all the ones befor
next war is our failing . not the usa . but ours . men. such potential still wasting
I think your answers are better as well. Trouble is it is not the real world. If you don't want to be controlled you have to know what controls you.
Matter and anti-matter.
stop threatening them they might not want a nuke . lets try that
Facts that we must deal with:
Iran has not invaded another country for over 100 years; it's a peaceful country.
Iran is NOT looking to build nuclear weapons; no one has any evidence otherwise.
Iran can't even produce enough gasoline to power itself; they aren't self-reliant.
... why are we bullying this country?

Over the last couple of days a lot of media attention has gone towards a conspiracy theory involving Ron Paul and Mitt Romney banding together. They seem to be pushing it pretty hard which in my mind means that they are trying to paint Ron Paul as a sell-out. What are your thoughts?
