A war with Ahmadinejad is inevitable, because he intends to start one no matter what anyone else wants.
The only quesiton is whether we want to wage the war before he gets nukes, or after.
It may be the end of Armageddonejad's history even sooner than that.
Iran will have to start one if they want one.
You mean like after Ahmadinejad nukes Tel Aviv?
Anybody would have to be crazy to start a big war. Iammadjohn might do it. As far as nuking this or that city, it would take more than one A-bomb to actually destroy a city.
The present is the buffer between the end of history and the start of the future. So the end of history is just an instant ago.
The present is a convienent fiction to keep the past from bumping into the future.
I am not saying we should nuke Tehran. I'm no military strategist, and have no idea what our best option is for neutralizing Iran as a threat. I do know, hoever, that diplomacy will not get the job done.
What I'm saying is that we have to recognize that war is inevitable, and that we should fight it as we see fit at a time of our own choosing.
I believe Hiroshima was destroyed as a "city", and Nagasaki as well. For all intents and purposes, the tiny state of Israel is like a "city" in the sense that a nuke would be so devestating as to require all means to circumvent even the possibility of a nuke being launched at it.
There is nothing new under the sun, history repeats itself. FDR's challenges of hitler's holocaust/japan's pearl harbor are being repeated in GWB's iranian nazi-nut-911 strike/china's stealth soldiers hidden in the mexican flood, just waiting the orders to strike our military bases/electric grid(the movie is RED DAWN). Pray for our president, the burden he is carrying as CIC is truly awesome. Will we be as victorious in this coming WWIII as we were in WWII? Its all in GOD's hands as you say.
Has somebody nuked Tel Aviv? No?
The Hiroshima city trolley continued to run all day and forever. City service didn't stop just because of a few city blocks being incinerated. Nagasaki was nearly missed altogether. Both cities are still doing very well.
It took only 19 terrorists and three airplanes to destroy the Twin Towers, kill 3,000 Americans and nearly demolish the Pentagon. And let's not forget that those 19 terrorists managed to destroy our economy for about three years and forever change the way we live. One nuke in any city on earth will destroy that city, via the blast, the raging infernos afterward, the radiation, and the tidal wave of terror which will spread through the remains of that city like a tsunami. The markets will tumble in every nation, the prices of oil and gas will soar out of control, and panic will spread all over the earth. Iran's nuclear ambitions must be stopped, and soon.
That is already well known, unlike the origin of chess. What do Zoroastrians think of Christians?
This statement is insane. Both cities were so devastated that Hirohito surrendered to the allies, and he was a man who was prepared to fight the allies to the death in the streets of Japan. Take this fact together with the fact that today's nukes are far more powerful than the early A-bomb, and Israel will for all intents and purposes cease to exist as a nation for years to come, (and this assumes that only one bomb will hit). Iran must be stopped.
The end of his history maybe. This fool has no idea what the West is capable of.
Japan surrendered to the US because Russia was bearing down on them. The power of A-bombs is vastly overestimated by most civilians, and the power of radioactive fallout even more so.
As long as we still have the present and future
