The Soviet stockpile of nukes was kept the stalemate on nuclear agression. Neither side could be victorious. Now, in a totally different world, we could have a loose cannon like Iran trying to proliferate nuclear projectiles. Iran would not hesitate in using these weapons. Look at the Iran-Iraq War of the 80's. Iran tied thousands of children and old men together, and forced them to rush the desert, clearing landmines, so the armored divisions could get through. That is their mentality. It's bad enough the hostage crises in the early 80's was a slap in the face. The last thing we need is for an Islamic-repressive government to obtain these weapons. Not only because og the threat to the Western Nations, but also to Israel, and the other nations of the Middle-East. Iran is a rogue nation. Non-Arab and proud, this is a time bomb waiting to explode.
Other way around. That was Iraq using children to clear land mines.

Hey piss ant, do you have any clue how your own country was "split" in two or how it became whole again? How's the mess that was East Germany doing, cleaned up yet?
It's easy to jump in with your "angst" try remembering your own nations history.
"Sig Hiel" ingrate.

The US gave arms to the taliban in the 80's when they were fighting against the soviets you cant use that as proof we funded terrorism. Plus can i see some fact about Israel funding hamas or do you just open your mouth and empty comments come out.
Maybe they don't want to spent their oil on this one. Nuclear energy is cheaper and selling oil can help them become a rich nation like Dubai.

yea, gas power plants and other patroleum(sp?) based power generation
they could easily ask for outside help to build safer, more powerful nuclear plants that cant be used to supply nuclear weapon material.
and no middle eastern people havent liked us and have attacked western nations via hijacking, terrorism, and have kidnapped westerners, etc for decades- where do you get your picture of reality?

Hey shoo, we got off to a rough start, just want you to know, my stepmother is german, from Pfronten. I have visited there. I am of German descent. There is quite a chasm between Euroliberals and we bloodthirsty conservative Americans. Time will judge the wisdom of this Iraqi skirmish, I feel it will be seen historically as a mere stepping stone in the total war in which we are now engaged. As Bachman Turner Overdrive sang years ago, "You ain't seen nothin' yet"

I would receive a warning for this. GREAT MODS!
It became whole as the sovjet union broke, the east german people revoluted and by politics. Any special reason I should explain that?
The mess east germany did? They did a lot of weired and bad stuff but give me a clue what you are talking about exactly. Sounds like some really scary stuff that is threatening our world till today. Please answer.
It's "Sieg Heil!" stupid kid but we don't use it anymore here in Germany as we live together in peace with all kind of nations(and now I am waiting for those Americans to show me how much racism we have here in germany by naming some small events..hehe)
Yes finally someone smart tells these hopeless idiots that are blowing their guts to stop cuz they are not going to win anything also just cuz we have technology and music and arts and democracy we are the evil devil these people need to realize that they are only producing more hate and violence by blowing themselves up and the part that cracks me p is they think they are going to go to heaven with 70 virgins if they commit suicide

On W.G. I was referring to the ecological damage from their industrial attempts to keep up with the "free world", and yes I understand that is more the fault of the Kremlin then Germany. I'm sure you know the specifics better than I, but in any account I'm sure the clean up is keeping you Germans more the just busy. (I speak of the economic costs)
On my German, I again apoligize and although I may be "dumb" but I'm not "stupid" because I'm learning all the time. And although I can be "imature" at times I'm definitely not a "kid" any longer (only in heart), in fact I'm beyond middle age crazy
Last note: I'm glad to hear Germany is a progressive place to live now, unfortunately the rest of the world is not. Genozides happen all to often and that is why WE can never afford to forget, and certainly Germany (East/West Up or Down) CANNOT BE ALLOWED to forget.
Don't mean to preach, but the reminder seems apporpriate coming after your US preach. Believe me I'm aware of what any nation is capable of if unCHECKED including the US. I just don't think it's half as bad as you US bashers make it out to be. Hopefully we (US) will rectify our own problems this coming November.
