    Talk about putting the cart before the horse. You guys reading anything your posting. C'mon. Lighten up.
    Rihght now Iran is only saying Israel shojld not exist, for reasons I have no idea. As far as I know Iran has not threatened the US, only making some statements to a point. Let me tell you, No one wants another war, I am sure Iran is included in that. So stop the war mongering. My stick is bigger than your stick, yea, my rock is bigger than yours crap. Just go have a beer. Relax and breathe.

      Moron huh! You are just as stupid as the orignal posters comment. Iran took American Hostages back in the 70's, has spouted death to America, and made threats on our friends to wipe them off the map. I have a son fighting over in the middle east. I come from a family of decorated military people. All willing to give life for our country. Iran is a cancer. None of our family as with most Americans want war. We want to live in peace and raise our families. We would fight in a minute if attacked on our shores or else where in the world. Iran has made a threat of terror squads here in the states. I can't imagine the extremists with a Nuke. Whose the Moron? Americans help all over the world during disaters, give more money to feed those who are starving and sick,, even in economic hard times. Don't talk stupid. USA ! This thread is getting old. My last post on it.

    Is this the same human that was giddy with glee when "we came we conquered he died". She's had it out for Iran since the beginning of her tenure. To think I had supported her in her campaign – now I am embarrassed to have ever even considered it.

    America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.

    In 1953, America overthrow Iran's democratic government and installed a brutal dictator Shah of Iran. America helped Shah to established secret police and killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians.

    During Iran-Iraq war, America helped Saddam Hussein and killed one million Iranians. America is the only country that shot down Iran's civilian air plain and killed all 290 passengers.

    In 2003, America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and displaced 4,000,000+ Iraqi people.
    Now, America is a failed country with huge debt. Its debt will be 24 trillion by 2015.

    Every other day a city in America is declaring bankruptcy. ha ha ha ha ha ha

      I am reading these posts and am thinking, wow, do you camel riding idiots really think this way.... I use that just to get your attention. The US has always been the one to come in and help, we spend treasure on worthless countries to bring freedom and self worth to them. If you hate us give back the money and stop crying like women and children that you are so poor and want to be like the rest of the world. "Work for it" put your petty bickering aside and do it otherwise shut the hell up (which is where your worthless terroists are going). You all talk a good story but when things go bad, its all America why will you not help us! Why do you not support us in our fight! We as Americans look out for "our" interests, our way of life, as any country would. We do not go asking for hand outs then bite the hand that feeds us. Yes we are tired of war, a war we did not ask for, but we will never quit, never stop, till it is finished.... Saeed.... we are watching.... we are everywhere... better hide....

      You better hope that Iran doesn't push to far. You just may see just how wrong and how stupid what your saying is. The American people don't want war, but if Iran continues to push our patients, makes statements like that one of our close friends has no right to exist, builds weapons that can take out our close friends, the only thing Iran will have left to shoot lazer beams from is a Camels back. Wake up Saeed.

        What's America gonna do? Start another war it can't finish? Cause the death's of thousands more civillians in the name of "democracy"? Go bankrupt trying to sustain it's global empire?

        Wow moron, push our patients ya say – Iran hasn't done one damn thing against the US – this is a total war crime in the making. To think moron blowhards like you come on here and put foot in mouth. Oh and by the way, Russia and China are most certainly not behind attacking Iran – nice try though Clinton. She actually thinks she has the respect of the world community does she – what a joke.

        So what you are really saying is that we are going to have an influx of Iranian orderlies working in hospitals all around the US?

      Saeed, don't push your luck. Be very careful what you wish for. Need I remind you about Hiroshima, Nagasaki?. No need to wake the sleeping giant. No other nation will rise to the occasion than these United States of America. If Iran wants to try, oh she will pay.

    Russia and China are only being supportive to save face with the West if things get ugly. Both nations have stone walled efforts on progress in Syria which is a gateway for Hezbollah in Lebanon. China is Iran's largest oil importer. Russia has a history of cooperation with Iran. Iran is on Russia's southern border, of course it is going to support a regime that cooperates with it. Russia allows Iran to siphon money through its banks into the Western economy. By the way, what city did the Ayatollah choose for negotiations with the West? Moscow... Russia and China are officially in favor of sanctions, but are relatively ambivalent toward their economies doing business with Iran.

    Good ! We can now focus on India. The American invasion of Afghanistan brought to the forefront the irrelevance of India as a nation. With a population of over 1.2 billion people there was no value that this nation could bring to the table. Their soldiers (ragtag) 1.2 million continue hiding in the trenches scared from Talibans. A few teenage Talibans invaded the country and held it hostage for days on end showing how useless India is. It was embarrasing for the world to observe this humiliation of a nation that was being touted as a regional power.

    I continue to read with interest the thesis presented on CNN that "less is more" in a political context as applied to India. Although Mies Van Der Rohe adopted this in an architectural context, its economic and political connotations are indeed powerful. Empowering subjugated minorities in India by splitting it into smaller states would trigger uber economic demand for western nations who have given so much financial and technology aid to India with no return to show for the investment. I concur with this approach and with an economic background find the premise to be on solid footing. Central Asian States (CAS) are a case in point on this successful approach. We need to understand that India has an unmanageable large population mired in poverty and we are spinning our wheels trying to feed it. It is also too big of a geographical unit to govern. Again, we saw how a few teenage talibans were able to invade it with a few BB guns. And that says a lot... in a negative way not only for a large unmanageable country like India but also for USA which is trying to prop it up against China. Besides, Americans cannot afford to look like losers in the midst of a terror war which has lasted for over ten years now.
