How can we attack Iran for having weapons maybe?? When NK does.
How are they going to justisfy an attack on Iran with the American public when NK is actually testing weapons. If that is actually the case? Seems to me that this could put a kink in this adminstations plans. No?

4. Just don't tell Kim that the US wants to invade Iran not NK.
He contends that he needs nuclear weapons to prevent a US invasion design to take NK's ....... NK's....., barren hills and starving people who I am convinced would rather die than be forced to live like their South Korea brethren.

At least Iran, unlike NK with its royal dictator, is a quasi-democratic, the candidate have to be approved by the religious leaders) and has a resource that it knows others covet. To the extent that it is democratic (like India and Pakistan - at the time), thereby presuming popular support for the endeavor, and their government desires nuclear weapons and is willing to divert the money from other domestic needs, then they should be allowed to do it.

3. hell yes they can
and CNN's Babs Starr, war whore, set it up for the pentagon this morning. She said "The biggest fear the WH has now is that NK will share this technology with Iran or some other bad actors."! There you have it! We need a pre-emptive strike on Iran!

9. I think you'll hear the following...
"The threat from Iran isn't that they will have nukes. Rather, it is the fact that they are likely to give nukes to terra-ists".

See the difference?

The war nuts will press the "OMG WTF will they do with nukes" meme to justify the attack. I don't know if it will work, but at this point it really doesn't matter what we think now does it?
