donk_316...there are two parts of me that reply to you.
The normal, guy next door in me doesn't really care if another country wants to build up its military. That guy wonders why the USA feels the need to
play international cop and tell other countries what they should and shouldn't do, and also wonders if said countries would really mess with us if we
just simply didn't mess with them.
But the soldier in me loves America, and wants any and all possible threats to America eradicated yesterday. The soldier in me has eternal
respite for countries that claim they want to see America fail, which Iran has done. And the soldier in me recognizes that enriched uranium has no
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes that the Holocaust never happened, and that the Nazis were framed. He also has publicly stated, with much support from
his countrymen, that Israel should be wiped off the the earth, and that no Muslim should rest until "the sea runs red with the blood of the
Zionists". He also publicly declares that "all western nations should be stomped out", and calls on "fellow Muslims to rise up against the
infidels in the west". And then he invites Bush to debate with him.
The contradictory messages sent by the president of Iran have lead me to believe that he is either insane, or bloodthirsty and stupid. I am leaning
towards insane, because as the president of his own country, he must realize that a few US bombs dropped on
Kharg Island would decimate his economy, as Iran has no other
place to refine their oil.
So I can understand what you're saying, but this man's comments cannot be ignored. You cannot dismiss what the president of a country says as
"blowing off steam", especially when that president is vowing genocide against nations. What would you say if Bush, or any other US President, were
to do the same thing?
