    Hm, sure, Iran's gonna come right out and say "We've finally did it!"
    ...Actually, I think that may be exactly what happens. I wonder if Ahmadinajad might use this defiance as a push to stay relevant at home. We all know his power is waning and nothing unifies like a boost of the national sentiment, "They think they're better than us. Let's show them just how great we really are!"

    Ahmadinajab and those who stood behind him are fools, and China, Russia, and the groups who supporting them are evil to the atmost.
    They [him and his followers] should wake up, and do the best for their own country, lift up the standard of living, and the education, the health, and give the freedom to the millions of their own people who live in a state of oppression for a very long time.
    This regime is playing with fire, and if they do not stop , then they are going to test the fire which comes from their own doing.

    This IDIOT will be the cause of another conflict/war, whatever! Actually I do not see why we are waiting? Sanctions only hurt the common people, and those bums running the country could care less! And we are really stupid to think that Isreal won't attack just because we ask! IF Isreal attacks then WE (USA) will be right there, even if we don't want to be.

    Just a FYI on Iran-USA. In the 1920's Britain controlled all of Iran's oil. In 1940, Briatain claimed that Iran was too chummy with the Nazi's and invaded Iran. Britain and the USA occupied Iran during WW2. In 1953, after Iran nationalized their oil, Britain asked the USA to overthrow the Iranian government. The USA launched operation Ajax, the first time the USA overthrew a democratically elected government. The USA put the Shah in power. After Iran got rid of the Shah the USA became uoset. In 1980 Saddam Hussein invaded Iran and after Iran started winning, the USA helped Saddam with intel, strategy, and weapons. Iran has been under crippling sanctions and possess an obselete infrastructure and a third worls military. After all that, who wouldn't want to get ahold of nukes (a bad idea). Iran has not declared war on anyone for over 200 years.

    Funny comment John S. You are right on the money there. It worked for George Bush Jr. didn't it? Do you think Bush Jr. would have ever been elected for a second term if we were not at war? And Ahmadinajad kind of reminds me of Bush Jr. for some reason....
