SkinnyHead: mrshowrules: This. Why did Obama approve the Iranian nuclear program? Surely a nuclear Iran is a bad idea.

Why did the Obama Administration underestimate the threat posed by Iran? That's the better question. They scrapped the missile defense plan because they thought that Iran did not pose a threat. And also to appease the Russians. Now we learn that Iran may be only 3 years away from developing an ICBM that can even hit America. But never mind that, Liz Cheney said Czechoslovakia.


I'm sure I was told eight years ago that Iran was only TWO years away from having nukes, so I guess things are improving.

Iran's been 3-5 years away from making some devastating superweapon for the last few decades. One of these days it'll be true and we can genocide them with impunity, I'm sure.

I'm trying to remember the president that went to war to topple a Sunni leader in a shiate majority country that ended up giving Iran more influence. I think his last name started with a B.

Is Russia the new Iraq for neo-cons? I must have missed that memo.


Mittens called Russia our enemy in a speech last week and instead of admitting that he hasn't slept in four days and doesn't know what the fark he's saying, well, Russia gets to be our enemy again.

Brian Ross just said they were a few weeks or days from building it.

"Four to six weeks away, if they made the decision to do it," Ross claimed. "That's some of the intelligence. They haven't made that decision, that's the key."

He was poo-poo'd by Christine Amanpour:

"That is so vastly disparate," Amanpour pointed out. "Other's say it could be a year. So, this is a guessing game that's gone on for years."

"It could be two years," ABC Senior Foreign Affairs correspondent Martha Raddatz agreed.

"That's the latest claim," Ross argued.

Worse than that, I think he misunderestimated it. I heard Iran is bypassing ICBM technology and with 3 weeks will have the ability to teleport high yield hydrogen warheads directly into Nascar events.

You gotta love conservative logic (in the same way that you love explosive diarrhea). Because we haven't already nuked Iran, it's because we think they're harmless. And by the way, we didn't "appease" the Russians, we negotiated with them because they had the valid objection that a missile shield would violate the ABM treaty... that we signed. Only a warmongering GOP shill would wish for a return to the Cold War.

Also, I don't know what shape you think the earth is, but a missile shield in the Czech Republic won't do squat if Iran launches an ICBM at the west coast of America.

Still, go ahead and find any lame excuse to criticize Obama. Have you figured out how to blame the Chicxulub meteor impact on him yet?

As a fellow European, I wonde how that's relevant; the Schengen agreement is about border control and police work, not military defense.

Actually,now thatit appears that Iran is poised to invade neighboring Czechoslovakia, I haven't heard ANYTHING from Obama on this. Just another foreign relation deisaster, I suppose. But we're getting used to that.
 
2012-09-16 08:21:51 PM  
Let me guess...Obama's abandoning Czechoslovakia looks a lot like Neville Chamberlain abandoning Czechoslovakia, therefore justifying the talking point that Obama is the appeasiest appeaser that ever appeased a peasy pea.

The Czechs believed it was important to their security. So did the Poles. That's why they feel abandoned by Obama. And the Iranians are getting close to developing ICBMs. This was a serious Obama blunder. It doesn't go away just because Liz Cheney said Czechoslovakia.

THIS IS OBAMA'S FAULT!!!

Okay, I can see how the size of government can seem overwhelming, I can understand the 1%-fetishist class warfare, I can see the internally consistent logic in homophobia, I can even tell that the sheriff is near.

BUT IT IS TWO THOUSAND farkING TWELVE.

I can't forgive, and certainly not vote for, relentlessly falling back on cold war politics. From the party that claims a monopoly on geopolitical toughness and brains. Where the fark have you idiots put Kissinger? He's evil but he farking pays attention.

I remember watching the USSR collapse from my dorm room with a cold beer in hand. Today's newest voters have grown up in a world completely without the marxist menace you can't move beyond. You are unfit for any role in government, we are all dumber for your participation in the system, and may god have mercy on your souls.

But...but...dinosaurs aren't extinct! Archosaurs aren't extinct! The theropodian versions of insectivorous bats and the rauisuchid equivalents of duckbilled platypuses not only made it through the K-T boundary OK, but (dare I say) PROSPERED--and I'd argue that the little tufted crimson-coloured theropodian terrors of the backyard STILL think they're just one evolutionary hop away from Deinonychus et al, based on how they harry the local squirrel population!

And in regards to the Czech Republic and Slovakia--not only did they end up walking away from communism relatively peacefully, the separation of the two countries was actually referred to as the "Velvet Divorce" because nobody in modern history had seen such a peaceful separation of countries.

Slovakia, I could see being a bit easier to forget; Czech Republic, not so much--some really nice briar pipes come from there, and some nice and cheap pipe tools, and it was where Pilsner beer was invented and where the real Budweiser is made (sold as Budvar in the US thanks to some annoying formerly-American company that hijacked the trademark and now is owned by Belgians).
