Newt the million dollar historian doesn't seem to remember the period during 1950-1989 when nuclear war was a REAL threat.

Once they have a nuclear weapon, let me assure you, you will not be safe, even here in Missouri

I hope all you people who fell for this crap back in 2002 have realized that this is utter bullsh*t.

If Obama didn't kill our moon base to fund illegal socialist anchor babies we could bomb Iran from the moon.

Exactly right, Iran is not looking to do us any favors.

You think about the dangers, to Cleveland, or to Columbus, or to Cincinnati, or to New York," Gingrich said, according to The Associated Press. "Remember what it felt like on 9/11 when 3,100 Americans were killed. Now imagine an attack where you add two zeros.

900/11? 81.82? I don't get it.

"Once they have a nuclear weapon, let me assure you, you will not be safe, even here in Missouris," Santorum said at a campaign stop last Friday in Missouri. "These are folks who have been and are at war with us since 1979.

Well for being at war with us for over 30 years, they've done a really shiatty job. I think we're fine.

Gingrich is writing fiction again. Iran doesn't have the capacity to launch a nuclear strike on the US.

Israel, on the other hand....they could scorch 'em a bit if they tried.

The problem is there are more unaccounted for nukes than we would like to admit. Even our own. This whole political posturing is getting old. Suffice it to say at some point we'll be nailed but the political tool (no pun intended) is getting old. When it happens we'll deal with it. We need to focus on infrastructure and response capability. Less on nation building at the moment. Presidents don't stop wars from happening any more than they could stop a holdup at the local store. We showed the "wake a sleeping giant" thing. Time for him to get back to bed already.

This the one fact that all these chicken littles ignore- Iran will NEVER launch a nuke on any other nuclear country (Israel, US, etc), unless they are on the verge of being completely wiped out. They know that any nuke strike would immediately be met with a response that would leave all of their major cities in smoldering ruins.

This is what I was saying back in the run-up to Iraq 2. Saddam may have been a little nuts, but he loved power, and he knew that power would be gone in an instant if he actually tried anything serious. There was absolutely no motive there, let alone means or opportunity.

You... you do realize, it's almost 1100 miles from Tehran to Tel Aviv. You can't just say "It's all in the middle east" and assume that means that everyone is within walking distance. Or, you can, but you'd be an idiot.

Citation Needed on Iran being able to launch ICBMs distances of 700+ miles, please.

Iran isn't exactly stupid. Just look at the lesson so far:

Iraq: has no nukes. Invaded.
North Korea: has nukes. Left alone.
Afghanistan: has no nukes. Invaded.
Pakistan: has nukes. Left alone.
Libya: has no nukes. Toppled.
Israel: has nukes. Given blow jobs.

So what if Iran develops an atomic bomb? If they dared to use it, they would face the response from the ONLY nation on Earth that has used nuclear weapons in wartime.

Shockingly, the author of this article is correct. You don't nuke Cleveland. You nuke the most conservative states in the Union, because that is where the job creators are to be found. You kill the job creators, you kill the country's economic machine. Go ahead, Iran. Drop nuclear weapons on the blue states. I doubt anyone will claim the incineration of thousands of welfare offices and thousands of food stamp production factories is what brought this country down.

That doesn't make sense. A nuclear attack on the United States would in turn force a war that would require a draft, and you would need millions of soldiers fast. Who better to fill that need than those welfare hogs. They are already on the government payroll, we might as well lessen their numbers while we are at it.

Maybe we could work out a deal with the terrorists? They get to attack with impunity Detroit, Flint, Cleveland, and Baltimore, and we look the other way and promise no reprisals.

Its a win win for both sides.

The terrorists get to go to their supporters and show off how brave they were and how they humbled America by launching attacks on our soil.

We get rid of Detroit, Flint, etc, without having to pay for the demolition ourselves and they drains they provide on our national economy. And there's no worry about being politically incorrect or worrying about eminent domain, because we get to blame it on those evil terrorists.

Once again for the hard of hearing:

THERE IS NO IRANIAN NUCLEAR THREAT

This is all bluster and bullshiat aimed at appeasing the spoiled brat named Israel, and aside from Paul, all of the Republican candidates are in a foot race to kiss Zionist ass.

Iran is not threatening us, we are threatening them.

Iran is not trying to strangle us financially, we are strangling them.

We, USrael are the aggressors here.
