Barack Obama, in Montana, responded moments ago to McCain's ridicule of the Illinois Senator for saying that Iran is a minuscule threat compared to the former Soviet Union.
McCain said this revealed Obama's "inexperience and reckless judgment." Here's the key part of Obama's reply...
"Here's the truth: the Soviet Union had thousands of nuclear weapons, and Iran doesn't have a single one. But when the world was on the brink of nuclear holocaust, Kennedy talked to Khrushchev and he got those missiles out of Cuba. Why shouldn't we have the same courage and the confidence to talk to our enemies? That's what strong countries do, that's what strong presidents do, that's what I'll do when I'm president of the United States of America."
Obama also said: "What are George Bush and John McCain afraid of"?
They are plotting to strike again. It was a terrible mistake to fail to act when we had a chance to take out an al Qaeda leadership meeting in 2005. If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won't act, we will.

A chance to take out an Al-Qaeda leadership meeting is a bit different than invading the entire country of Iran.
Wouldn't you agree?
"Strong" Presidents Aren't Afraid To Meet With Enemies
Likely true, but not for the assumed racial reasons...probably more of a religious fanatacism psycho assassin, than anything else....
Barrack is a brave man, a man set for greatness and a bullet in the head
