  1. A WMD is something that kills indiscriminately AKA poison gas a nuke, and landmind ect. A hand gun kills directly whoever its shot at so it should not be called a WMD.

    Iran does not have a nuke and isn’t making one and even if they did then so what. If Israel can have them and 7 other countries then why not Iran.The US has more WMDs than any one and has used them more than anyone and yet the US wants to order other countries not to build the same things?

    The Israelis are behind the stolen lap top lies. We need a huge report on that too. BUt your don’t really need it just look at the pre-invasion ies for Iraq and the cabal that was cranking that out all it was was re-done policy papers for Israel and bogus Israeli intelligence re-done with Wolfowitz’s team B and the OSP with Feith.

    All Roads Lead to Israel

  2. You’re right….The Iranians have a return address and the Persians are smart people…it’s all about maintaining Israel’s nuclear monopoly and the power of the Anglo-American Zionist cabal in the Middle East in general…Hopefully someday the avg American will realize that 1. America is not a Middle Eastern country and, therefore, it’s none of our business who runs these countries..and 2. Israel is not an island off the coast of Florida-as much as it may seem that way..

  3. WMD is an emotionally charged term, and intended to be such..Even in the case of chem-bio weapons-they’re battlefield weapons….ICBM’s are WMD..I told a deluded Republican in ’03 that it in order to make all this worth it, ” we would need to find bunkers filled with ICBMs with co-ordinates designating NY, DC, LA as targets..” His response ( before he realized that he had been scammed by the neo-cons ) ” I think we’ll find something like that..” He was a typical “conservative” ( whatever the hell that means ) minded retired guy who lived in one of those neo-con echo chambers: Listen to Rush at noon..Sean or Bob Grant at 3, rounded out with a little O’Reilly in the evening….At least he partly broke the spell they had over him…

  4. iran is in the same no win situation as iraq was if iran complied with every un or us mandate they would still be bombed it does not matter what iran does or does not do they can not avoid a us-israeli attack
