OK, well I dont see your logic with the gunning for war attitude with Iran, the US is taking a back seat the the Big 3 of the EU, if thats not going
for diplomacy I dont know what is. But we all know diplomacy with Iran cant work, they wont back down, their leaders will try and get into a biggest
dick contest with the west, one they cant win militarily. Which begs the question, what do they know that we dont, they know they can not beat the US
in a conventional war, I have no doubt they would use chemical weapons against our troops. Theyre in a corner, wont back down, and they only see one
way out, stalling until they can have a nuclear weapon, it would be their only bargaining chip.
There arent the parrallels with this Iraq war as it is known that Iran has chemical and biological weapons, not illegal, but they are dangerous to
have them, as they wont hesitate to use them. But with their continuing defiance of the IAEA and the EU who want to resolve this peacefully, you cant
draw the same parrallels with Iran and Iraq. Iran is a much wilder animal, who is much more capable, though I know the modern Western militaries
could handle it. I could see more similarities being drawn to that of NK, whos stalling tactics Iran is copy-catting. There isnt a doubt in my mind
that Iran wants to get their hands on nukes, and I cant say I blame them, but it would be breaching a legally binding treaty of which they are a
The skyrocketing housing prices are due to Katrina, and the fact that most of this nations building supplies are going down to help rebuild. Its not
the houses or property prices going up, its the materials prices going up. Ive seen this personally when me and my dad were getting estimates for
re-roofing our home. They were enourmously high for such a job as this, I myself worked in construction installing central air and heating systems as
well as ductwork. The price of sheetmetal used for their jobs have doubled.
I beg to differ on the issue of Americans not being aware of what is going on with Iran. Its a major talking point in our country, it worries a lot
of people. Their leaders wreckless comments do not scare as much as the possibility that if given the opportunity, they will carry them out. While I
did believe in giving Iran a chance, I dont now, because of their continued political stalling tactics that the Western Worlds more diplomatically
inclined are gullibly eating up. There is a threat in Iran, they actually have missiles capable of hitting as far as Europe(exactly where in Europe
is debateable, but at least as far as Turkey), a place in which we have many allies.
What exactly are Isreal's intentions as you see them? As for the Mujahadeen working for the CIA, wouldnt be the first time. You see it as corrupt,
you obviously dont fully understand the intelligence business. There is a saying in the Intel. Business, it goes "there are no allies, just common
interests." Which is what we have with these people, and we work together for mutual benefit until the job is done, everyone in the deal gets what
they want, all walk away happy, thats how intel. works my friend. Its dirty, but anything worth doing will require you to get a little dirty
What gives you the impression that Iran is holding free elections? When it doesnt matter who they elect. The real power still lies in the
Revolutionary council and Supreme Ayatolla. They had a moderate in before who was willing to negotiate and not play these games, but as soon as they
saw what he wanted wasnt in their interests, he was out. Free elections in Iran,
Putting troops in those areas surrounding Iran is a message to the Iranian leaders themselves. I'm sure they see it, the US aint tryin to hide it.
If they want to play hardball we can play harder, and they know that. Thats why they continue diplomatic stall tactics, they throw the EU negotiators
a bone, and quickley pull it back just when diplomacy seems to have worked. They are doing nothing but buying themselves time to finish what htey
intended to do all along, continue their nuke weapons program and they will unveil it as soon as the EU finds out, just like how they hid their weps.
program for 18 years and only confirmed it after the IAEA found out about it.
I wont get into a scripture battle here, as I dont know enough to get into that. I do say the scriptures are interesting and you make some good
points with them. All in all I enjoyed reading this as much as I have responding to it, you obviously put a lot of effort into this. Good work
