    anybodys response should be someone ate to many coo coo puffs. People who threaten the existance of human civilization with nuclear arms shouldnt be in high positions let alone have their finger on the button. All this global fighting is the power is being bought and not given to a person seeking justice and liberty for all mankind!

    Obama's response is to talk about the USA dismantling 80% of our nuclear weapons. Yes, that'll send the right message.

    All of those War Mongering people out there just drooling for another War and why not, most of our economy depends on keeping the pentagon and all of their corporate buddies busy designing and building the next generation weapons.

    Every generation gets to have its own War, its the price of doing international business. Why not, we are the biggest, brightest, shinning city on the hill, just ask anyone..

    it's sort of funny that they waited til the last minute to put the Real Santions on them – I mean, this government has been doing the "sanctions" thing for about 20 years. ( Bush # 1 ) and none ever worked. Why ? You've got to take control of their money ( central bank) when this happens, you've got them by the short hairs, so to speak. As long as they cannot purchase or sell their Oil, they are in a VISE.

    "Obama's response is to talk about the USA dismantling 80% of our nuclear weapons. Yes, that'll send the right message."

    What is it with you radical rightwing nutjobs and sending "the right message." Ya'll act like you're in junior high. The US has been reducing its nuclear arsenal for quite a while now (Reagan ring any bells?), so please show us how that "message" has somehow harmed US interests.

    Every last Republican left in the race has advocated launching a military attack against Iran, with the exception of the Ronulan leader, Ron Paul. Within a week of those debate pledges, Iran starts using gun boats to buzz US naval vessels. Pres. Obama can try to talk diplomacy all he wants. The Iranians are hedging their best on the worst case scenario; that Pres. Obama will lose the election, and it is better to start shooting at the US outside of Iranian borders than to wait for the US to invade under a Republican President.

    Anonymous – so please show us how that "message" has somehow harmed US interests.

    Does unilateral disarmament meaning anything to you? Probably not, you don't seem very educated.

    The quickest, surest way to get involved in a war is to be weak and/or project weakness. Nobody messes with Mike Tyson do they?

    Let Iran do as they wish. Let them all do as they wish and let them settle amongst themselves. That region hates the USA no matter what we do. We could invest Billions in human aid and the USA will still be the devil. Time for the Global Cop to step back and let the thugs fight amonst themselves. We should be more concerned with energy alternatives so we don't rely in that region.

    President of the United States (and former General of the Army) Dwight D. Eisenhower in his Farewell Address to the Nation on January 17, 1961:

    "A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction...
    This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

    We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together."

    I guess that explains why Switzerland is always being attacked in your world. In the real world, Mike Tyson was taken down by a criminal prosecution, outside of the ring where he *was* just an ordinary guy.

    It is a good time to start investing in the Body Bag Industry with the future war that is about to happen.
