He's not anti killing bin Laden, he's anti killing bin Laden during Obama's term.

Diogenes: So going after Gaddafi would be "mission creep." And Assad just needs to be removed from office. But Ahmadinejad says stupid and mean things about Israel? "Genocide!"


Ahmadinejad is guilty of crimes against humanity against his own people. His nation's military has cracked down against peaceful protests and killed a bunch of people (and there's probably more that are just taken quietly in the middle of the night). But yeah... he should be indicted because he said mean things about Israel. Because the hurt feelings of an israeli are worth x1000 the lives of a muslim.

Torgo_of_Manos: If anyone believes that Ackmadinnerjacket is anything more that a titular ruler of Iran is really kidding themselves.

/and I am including Rmoney in that statement


Shhhh! We need a boogeyman or our economy collapses. Or something.

I always wanted to test a Republican with the question, "Who's in charge of Iran?" Anyone who DOESN'T say "The Supreme Council, led by Supreme Leader Ali Khameini" doesn't get my vote. Ahmadinajad's role as "president" is analogous to the American Secretary of State. He doesn't wield power, but he's elected (or "elected") and they call him "President," so that's good enough for Republicans. He also says stupid, inflammatory shiat to keep his job and make his bosses happy, so maybe Republicans just don't like the competition...

Silverstaff: Jgok: So, Christian Republicans... Why are you going against your God's will? You've been harping on about the end times for centuries now, but you continue to delay the prophesied Apocalypse by refusing to turn against Israel. shiat or get off the pot, I say...

/yes, this was mostly snark

I actually made that argument once. The people I asked doubled down on the Derp.

The way it was explained to me was that since the US is a Christian StateTM it is part of Israel/Jerusalem for those purposes, and it will be a part as long as it stays a Christian State.

Those libby libs trying to force Jesus out of the Constitution and ban the Bible are trying to destroy America by removing God's Protection by separating it politically and religiously from Israel.

In other words, they were saying that Separation of Church and State will destroy America because of biblical prophecy. . .and that's why liberals are satanic.

/Wish I was joking
//Some people scare me with the toxic levels of derp they emit.


Oh, for flying fark's sake! That's what they really believe? That's incredibly scary.

I'm a Christian myself, and I find that working at the "love your neighbor' bit is pretty much a full-time job. It's not always easy. I personally don't see how other Christians have time to worry about stuff like you mentioned, or GLBT marriage, or the rest of it that they keep going on about.

/The obvious asnwer is that they aren't really Christians, but saying that would be judging them, which is something we're not supposed to do.

way south: Mr. "57 States" mixed up his Russian and US ships during the Democratic convention, and then tried to expound on Romney's lack of geographical and Naval knowledge during the last debate.


Because Obama personally picks the slides for his presentation?

I've heard a lot of weak false equivalency arguments around here in my time but that one is something special.

Mitt's "I'm gonna arrest Ahaminajihad" whargaarbl wasn't a simple side show goof up it is clear proof that the guy A) has no credibility of foreign policy issues B) Is in Bibi's back pocket and C) Has no clue how the real world works in which case he's an idiot or alternately is just saying whatever the fook he thinks people want to hear in order to get votes in which case he's shameless, power hungry overly-entitled asshat who should never be let near the office of the presidency.

But that's just my opinion, man.

Katolu: Vodka Zombie: Fark Israel. Let them fight their own wars.

They have a very capable military. Why we feel the need to coddle them is beyond me. Sure, back them up, but fight their wars THEY want to start?


Because of Jesus.

Seriously.

The big reason that supporting Israel is so popular, no matter what, is that to many/most Evangelical Christians, they see the modern State of Israel as being the same Israel prophesied in Revelations.

According to Revelations, Israel will always be victorious, and is the Good Guy, and whoever stands against them is opposing Jesus and God.

So, no matter what Israel says or does, they believe it's right because the Bible says so. They are a large voting bloc with significant power in the Republican party.

Combine that with political power of wealthy Jewish political donors and guilt over the holocaust putting pressure for the US on the Democrat side, and the US won't directly oppose Israel, and will normally go out of its way to support them.

Yeah. I'll back arresting and trying Ahmadinejad for genocide for sabre-rattling against Israel when the teabaggers are rounded up wholesale, sent to Guano, CIA black sites, and extraordinarily rendered for high treason, assassination of a president, and in some cases ethnic cleansing.

If words equal actions, then let's see consistency.

Actually, it may not be as complicated as TFA makes it out to be. I don't see them going the UN Security Council route. Any member state can bring a case to the ICC. Sure, the US isn't a member, but Canada is. Mittens would just get Harper to do it.

/to be clear, I do not approve of this plan

Even better: John Bolton is one of Mitt's foreign policy advisers.

It's scary how much people care about bullshiat social issues when Romney sucks so much on foreign policy, the issue that could actually get us all irradiated.

First, they would need to make sure Russia and China missed the Security Council meeting. The US could schedule the meeting at Buffalo Wild Wings, but tell Russia and China the wrong one. That would take care of that.
Then to capture him, they could send him an official looking letter, telling him he won a brand new car but he had to pick it up at The Hague.
