Carol Platt Liebau: Why Iran Can't Have Nukes

Why Iran Can't Have Nukes

Look at this: An Iranian hard-line cleric warned Israel on Tuesday that Iran's long-range missiles will land in Tel Aviv if the Jewish state attacks Iran.

Sounds clear enough for now -- but once Iran has the capacity to destroy Israel with a nuke, how long will it be until another "hard-line cleric" interprets the very fact of Israel's existence as an "attack" on Iran?

In the meantime, as Bernard Goldberg points out, Iran's president sounds pretty much like an American liberal.

Beware of smooth talkers with all the answers.

This quote in my day planner today couldn't have been more timely:

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. - Winston Churchill

On Charlie Rose last night William Kristol was saying we may not have any choices but to nuke Iran. I wonder if Iranians were watching.

All this talk of war makes ones blood boil and gives new meaning to our short and boring existence. It makes one feel so connected with others in a cause and feel so alive. There is nothing so intriguing as fighting for survival of what one believes. And the dry-drunk George is just the fool to lead us.

The occupation of Germany after WWII did not go smoothly because not all laid down their arms. Those who did not were dealt with harshly, by both occupying troops and partisans.

The occupation of Japan went smoothly because the Emperor told everyone to lay down their arms.

The occupation of Iraw didn't/hasn't gone well because the clerics have not told everyone to lay down their arms.

The defusing of Iran will probably follow the Iraq model.

But we will have learned the lessons of WWII by then.

editor, you might have a boring existence, but I know something that would spice it up...give your life over to Jesus Christ. You'll experience a change that is everything but boring, and you can help change lives for the better. Yeah, you will be mocked and persecuted, but that's half the fun! You can see all of your values be trodden upon first hand! And of course your freedom of speech will be enslaved by the secularists, but that's not really a "right" to say what you know and feel anyway.

imagine, that there is a heaven.

Here's an interesting article giving a little perspective to our current penchant for "end times" prognostications.

That is a very good article on perspective Greg. thanks!

I suppose my fears are really more on the domestic front with what seems to be crazy and useless social changes. I should really just be optimistic as we watch the MSM go down in flames.

I thought it was a good article as well. However, it doesn't seem to take into account the love of death that the current enemy embraces. In conflicts past, the enemy wanted to survive as much as we did. Now, death, or their perverted view of martydom, is a goal. Changes the dynamics just a bit. But I'm down with the notion of dealing with it all BEFORE they have nukes. Too bad we can't say the same about N Korea.
