    When you have a president who is a total laughingstock on the world stage, the only thing stopping them is if they really don’t want them. This is not going to end well.

  • Philo Beddoe

    This has been going on for years. Until the USA quits listening to the limp wristed UN, more and more countries like Iran will obtain nukes.

    Now we have to scare the cra9 out of countries in Central and South America that we will stop THEM from obtaining Iranian nukes

    Weakness just invites more danger… and we have a pResident who is determined to undermine our strength at every opportunity.

    Reelect Obama and you may very well die.

    Hmmmm….Iran with nuclear weapons capable of hitting the US by 2015, that’s scary because the nuts in charge in that country might not hesitate at trying their luck by attacking us. And obama is trying to make sure that Israel doesn’t attack Iran’s nuclear facilities in the meantime….thanks a bunch, Dear Leader-(less and Clueless). We’re going to have to fight those fanatics in Iran sooner or later. Hope we haven’t destroyed all our nuclear weapons and have a bunch to send to Iran when that day comes.

      Right now, presently we have assets in the Straits of Hormuz that are quite capable of rendering Iran impotent and I am sure you know that. Our problem is an administration that may well use those assets as a political ploy instead of what they are capable of. This is just another reason why it is so important Obama is shown the door along with Clinton, Panetta, Napolitano, and that director of the CIA, and DNI. We can’t do much about Obama’s military appointments until they retire.

      I think Zero has it in mind to reduce our nuclear capability to 0. He gave up a lot with that new START treaty and I’m still damn mad at our Senate for ratifying it. Quite a few Reeps supported it. Just plain foolish – they didn’t get any concessions, they just gave up our strengths.

      We won’t have the ability to fight back in 2015 if they keep sending all our money to despots and political supporters.

  • Bolton has been saying that for 5 yrs now. The Iranian regime has gone nuclear already. Plus Bolton has to explain his support for the MeK, a Marxist Islamist cult based in France.

    Wow. Big surprise. Iran has been working on a nuclear program to create nuclear weapons for over 20 years, ever since the Ayatollah Khomeini died back in ’89. The fault with not stopping them lies fully in the lap of the UN and the IAEA, who have continually asserted that Iran has not been working on making nuclear weapons.

    After an untold number of useless sanctions against them by the UN, we stand on the doorstep of it actually happening. Doesn’t seem to be any way around it, short of a US-Iranian war. The UN and it’s clown outfit, the IAEA, have been used as puppets quite easily by Iran, either through their own ignorance or through their standard corruption.

    It’s time we got rid of the UN before they become any more powerful than they already are and attempt to usurp the sovereignty of the US. As to Iran (with Russia’s help) it looks like nothing stops them from getting nuclear weapons, short of giving them those nuclear weapons the old fashioned way, via airmail.

  • The big question is whether or not Israel will bomb Iran soon. If Obama (GOD FORBID) wins on election day, I think the Israelis will bomb the following day. That would unleash a global war, something we have not seen since the darkest days of the Cold War. The only thing that would keep the Israelis back from attacking would be Romney winning in November. Then they would at least have a chance at having a true ally on their side in this struggle to the end. Let’s hope Romney wins, for the world’s sake.

    Reminder to the leadership of Iran: Thirty-five of our bases may be within striking distance of Iran’s ballistic missiles, but the leaders in Tehran need to remember that every square inch of Iran is within striking distance of our missiles. Hopefully by 2015, we’ll have a strong president that won’t be reluctant or hesitant to protect our country from the nutcases of the world!!!

  • Sober_Thinking

    And the world just sits on their thumbs while this has been happening for years. Screw Russia… screw China… screw the UN… wipe out Iran’s nukes. How much impotent hand-wringing and whining is really going to be effective against those animals? Take them out.

    Once they go nuclear, what’s left before the Rapture? All the pieces will be in place and the 2nd coming of our Lord has to be VERY near. Since the world is blind and is allowing all these events to take place, we can logically conclude that the author of confusion is gearing up for one final push. I hope we’re all ready.

  • Allowing Iran to have not just a bomb, but hundreds of nuclear bombs, would be like allowing Hitler to have them, as do you think Iran’s Ahmadedajad would not use them against Israel, America, and the western free world. He could care less about innocent lives. He cares only about death and destruction and his militant religious islamic muslim extremist vision of a nuclear holocaust, and if allowed to build these bombs, would unleash a nuclear horror that will start WWII, and the world will go up in nuclear mushroom clouds.

    The question is, can we get Obama out of office, so that Israel and the US can do something about it, before it’s too late.

    They aren’t telling you that they are doing a lot of it with American money.

  • Bobemakk

    Iran probably has them already. God help US and the rest of our allies. The Russians and the Commie Chinese are helping Iran and that’s no joke, we can’t trust either of them along with Venezuela, N. Korea and there’s a long list that can go on and on.

  • aZjimbo

    I could have told you this years ago. What did Bush do? Zero. What has the muslim prez done? Zero. The world has no balls to stop Iran. It will come back to haunt this country one day.
