I am going to save this answer as I can see I can use it over and over. The followers of Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter all believe in the Manifest Destiny. (Manifest Destiny is a phrase that expressed the belief that the United States had a mission to expand, spreading its form of democracy and freedom. Advocates of Manifest Destiny believed that expansion was not only good, but that it was obvious (“manifest”) and inevitable …). Most of the followers of these individuals have the same views. Many hold religious beliefs that the end is near and because of that many of today’s problems are pragmatic. They think the answer to things they need to address is force, never stopping to consider the fall out of such actions. When ever I hear them expressing such narrow minded opinions I think about a book titled “The Ugly American” (Ugly American is an epithet used to refer to perceptions of arrogant, demeaning, unthoughtful behaviors of Americans abroad. The term originated as the title of a 1958 book by authors William Lederer and Eugene Burdick…). Never mind the war might kill thousands as long as they are not Americans it is justified. During World War II there were some instances which even then raised many a persons conscience for example the bombing of Dresden on the nights of February 13 and 14 1945 we bombed and killed roughly 135,000 to 300,000 civilians. Another example would be August 6 and 9 1945 we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki over time killing roughly 428,000 most of which are civilians. Between England and America we have steered, dominated, assassinated countless Governments and countries. Seldom thinking about the pain and death we caused the populations but again there are countless Americans who believe if it is our best interest it is justified. If we need the canal, oil, natural resources we take them. Usually it is big business doing the controlling; they will lobby the politicians to do their bidding, and between the two they will control the publicity ensuring the media spins what it takes to control the American People. There are world leaders and individuals who when they tell the world what is going on are labeled everything from lunatic, tyrant,or they aim to over thrown the Free World.
Bombing Iran, North Korea would be the end. Bombing Iran would contaminate their and possible other middle East oil supplies; it would solidify the Islamic Movement it would make every other third world country turn against us (so to make sure we could not get the jump on them) we would have daily assassinations and bombing just like they have in Russia and Baghdad.
Bombing Northern Korea would be just as bad if not worse. In October 1950, China entered the Korea war and kicked our butts. They dared us to drop the atomic bombs on them. They knew their population was so large that for us to be able to put a dent in it would have caused so much atomic energy to have been expended the world as we knew it would have ceased to exist. Well, they have even more people now; we would have a hard time using nukes on North Korea, as due to their proximity to South Koreas we would be killing an ally. The North Koreas rolled over the South in 1950 but would have a harder time this time but would prevail. Japan has a non-aggression Constitution but I believe they would have to come to the aid of the South. If not and the North wins and eventually rolling over Japan. I don’t think American could stop them this time, too much political correctness plus bog brother China. No, North Korea would not be someone anyone should wake up!
No, only kids, literates and that bunch of professional losers believe that garbage of aggression. Have you ever wondered why China is everyone friend and why everyone in a political situation listens to them and takes their advise?
There is no doubt that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. Only the very naive would say otherwise. The question is much, much deeper than that. It takes an intellectual perspective. The theory of nuclear physics does not belong to any race or culture. Any individual or group with the intellectual capacity to understand and utilize the science of nuclear physics is both morally and ethically entitled to exploit the benefits of that technology. The laws of the Universe do not state that the United States of America has sole rights to nuclear technology and therefore it boils down to a more fundamental ideological struggle. Bear in mind that it was German Jewish scientists that made the nuclear bomb possible. American money accelerated the development process. So the US has no moral right to deny another state access to nuclear power or weapons. Nuclear is a frightening reality we all need to come to terms with. The way to do that is treat Islamic countries as equal partners in the society of humaniy. Iran wont bomb Israel as the laws of MAD apply to Iran and Israel in the same way as it does between USSR and USA.
Give them their last warning?? Oh really,then what??Economic sanctions.The people there are already starving,poorly clothed,cut off from the world and the N. korean govt doesnt give rip.A last warning can only lead to America losing face or war.America cant afford another war right now unless everyone was behind it and I cant see that happenning
Yes i agree with you.but some how i don’t think Tehran will give a dam about the warning?
I don,t think so, just because he said he hates Jews does,nt mean he will blow them up. I,ve talked to Lebanon christians they don,t like Jews, because their parents did,nt like them.I,m sure it would be hard to find an Islamic who would say they like them.Fare is fare, Isreal has a bomb and after what they did to Lebanon who,s to say.
I think the US should get rid of its own nuclear arsenal and NATO should be disbanded. They have already proven to be dangerous.
There you go again with the gung-ho attitude. The only bully in the world is america…do as I say not as I do…terrible attitude.
only if they will follow through with the warning.
I agree !!
