Clinton: Iran cannot be trusted with nuclear program

Source: CNN

Former President Bill Clinton weighed in one of the election's pressing international issues Tuesday saying Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cannot be trusted regarding his country's nuclear ambitions.

In an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" to air Tuesday at 9 pm E.T., Clinton also addressed ... <snip>

Asked to respond to the Iranian president questioning why his country cannot have nuclear weapons if other countries can, Clinton, in turn, posed a rhetorical question:

"Why isn't (Ahmandinejad) going for some bigger non-proliferation initiative instead of acting like what he really wants is a nuclear bomb because that will help to get everybody get rid of their nuclear weapons?"

"No serious person believes that," Clinton answered in the interview.

We must keep it shrouded in mystery as a dark and evil place, dontcha know!!

Heaven forbid that Americans learn that Iran is a first-world country with a highly educated population with a wide diversity of views on politics and religion - a heck of a lot like the US in many ways. If that happened, people might feel bad about bombing them.

I'm pretty sure it's statistically impossible for there to be no homosexuals in Iran.

As for a diversity of views, were you living in a monastery for the last ten years or something? Do you not remember wide-spread political protests happening in Iran?

Do you think the Christians, Jews, Zoroastrians, etc. in Iran hate non-Muslims? I imagine that they take their own religions just as seriously as Muslims do and are not self-hating masochists.

I didn't mean to suggest otherwise, but you bring up a good point here. Has the US executed someone recently? Yep. We're in a really small, disgusting club with that one.

Just as I would rather not be bombed because of the terrible actions of my government, I assume most Iranians would rather not be bombed because of the terrible actions of their government.

That bit doesn't really matter though. I don't hear a lot of cries above the drums of war for bombing Iran for the purposes of bringing equal rights to gays or ending their death penalty.

GLBT. And the US rarely executes anyone. The vast majority of executions are conducted by individual states for violation of state laws rather than federal cases.

I have no doubt that some GLBT people have been executed, but their orientation hasn't been the offense.

Having a death penalty for any crime would be laughably absurd if it didn't involve the state killing people. That's some crazy backwards shit.

We also don't have equal rights in the US for all people. I don't think the pot should be calling (or bombing) the kettle black.

60. No argument here

"He is a fucking homophobic bigoted antisemitic holocaust denying asshole !" <- This is true

I never disputed that, in any post. His own words prove that.

BUT he has never threatened to strike Israel. Ever. That is a flat out lie. A dangerous one because it can be a pre-text for instigating war. A lie that has been debunked by reputable press, but not before the right-wing noise machine passes it around. Just the other day, Reuters tried it again with some editorial shenanigans before CBS stepped in and put the kabosh on it.

"But while Reuters quoted Ahmadinejad as calling for Israel to be “eliminated,” the official translation of his remarks indicated that he steered clear of the fiery rhetoric he is best known for."

Even Obama carefully avoided claiming that in his UN speech. He chose his words wisely for a reason. It wasn't just semantics. Our president is not a propagandist nor a liar. It's not unlike the "you didn't build that" meme he had to deal with a while ago. Except this is more dangerous because we are talking about war.

44. Good question, the US needs to lead the way in getting rid of Nukes. But instead

the focus on this one country which DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THEM, is more than suspicious. Bill must think we are all as naive as we used to be back before we realized he was such good friends with the Bush family, AFTER we spent years defending him from Bush supporters.. That was the beginning of a rude awakening for me regarding politicians in general.

Bill needs to remember what he himself said about nuclear armed nations when he was president. He stated that the Pakistan/India situation was the most dangerous in the world and that during his term of office, they came close to Nuclear War three different times.

I guess he forgot that threat from actual nuclear armed countries, and someone has persuaded him to try to convince us that Iran, which has no nukes, is a worse threat then the countries he himself identified as the real threat to world peace.

He carefully avoided going there. The US could lead from the front by drawing down it's own nuclear weapons program, instead of modernizing it to the tune of billions.

Certainly there are better ways to deal with Iran than bombing and killing thousands of its citizens. I troubles me that Natanyaho is doing his darnedest to drag the United States into a war before our elections. Why can't our elected officials gather the strength to tell Zionists NO More War ,No more military aid and no more support of its militaristic aims.

27. Iran is in violation of the NPT.

And here's the transcript of Obama's remarks about Iran:

"Time and again, it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate that its nuclear program is peaceful, and to meet its obligations to the United Nations."

http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/25/remarks-president-un-general-assembly

<snip>

In Iran, we see where the path of a violent and unaccountable ideology leads. The Iranian people have a remarkable and ancient history, and many Iranians wish to enjoy peace and prosperity alongside their neighbors. But just as it restricts the rights of its own people, the Iranian government continues to prop up a dictator in Damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. Time and again, it has failed to take the opportunity to demonstrate that its nuclear program is peaceful, and to meet its obligations to the United Nations.

So let me be clear. America wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. But that time is not unlimited. We respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power, but one of the purposes of the United Nations is to see that we harness that power for peace. And make no mistake, a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy. It risks triggering a nuclear-arms race in the region, and the unraveling of the non-proliferation treaty. That’s why a coalition of countries is holding the Iranian government accountable. And that’s why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

34. lets take a look at history...

The 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis is coming up in October and there is alot of analysis going on about how we came to the brink of a nuclear armageddon and what lessons we can learn from that situation and the leadership of Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro at that time... Take a look at www.armageddonletters.com/films. They have only added 4 films, but are making a series based on the communications between the leaders of the US, Russia, and Cuba to look at what that moment in time means for us now. Maybe its scary to disarm our weapons, but it's really scary to know that thousands of nuclear weapons exist and only 20 are needed to cause a nuclear winter.

49. I don't trust anyone with nuclear weapons......

- Or any nuclear material of any kind. We haven't evolved sufficiently, in my view, to be trusted with such knowledge. And I especially don't trust US, since we have the most nuclear weapons and thus a greater probability of fucking something up with them -- by accident, or whatever. And we have the ''most accidents'' with them too. Absolute butter-fingers. We've got bombs that fell out of aircraft, or those that crashed or otherwise sunk into the drink with oodles of nuclear weapons in-tow. And there all still down there next to Davy Jones locker -- too deep or difficult, and/or risky to try and retrieve -- they say. Literal ticking time bombs.

Peruse through these when you have an hour or five to kill.......
