Israel is an even smaller country than Iran

An excellent point.

I would hate to point out to Mr Fauxbama that Nazi Germany (137,847 sq miles) is much smaller than Iran (636,296 sq miles)

Facts have no place in any debate involving Barack Obama.

Here is what wikipedia says about that:

(The Cuban Missile crisis) “ended two weeks later on October 28, 1962, when President of the United States John F. Kennedy and United Nations Secretary-General U Thant reached an agreement with the Soviets to dismantle the missiles in Cuba in exchange for a no invasion agreement and a secret removal of the Jupiter and Thor missiles in Turkey.”

The point is negotiation was backed by US military force and the credible threat to use that force. Concessions were made on both sides, but the USSR lost the most.

We need to make sure everyone we know understands how incompetent Barry O. is, saying there are 57 states, calling Iran ‘tiny,’ and offering to negotiate without preconditions.

Isn’t treating with the enemy treason? The question of Iran isn’t really significant. I am sure we will be at war with them by Election Day.

Tiny? Obama is a moron. First off, it is hardly “tiny” at roughly 1/5 our population and 1/6 our landmass. It also has enormous natural resources and a key geostrategic position. It also has leaders with a strategic vision and the (not so tiny) b@lls to carry it out, even if that means spilling lots of innocent blood.

Oh, yeah, and one more thing: Obomination is probably not even aware of Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP). One fairly sizeable nuke exploded high above Kansas would disable much of the electronics in the CONUS, with effects just a BIT larger than “tiny.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_pulse

Obomination is a naive, ill-informed, anti-American PUTZ. We simply CANNOT allow that man and his minions/hangers-on to attain power. I don’t like McCain at all, but ANYONE is preferable to this walking, talking disaster.

Never apologize for them.
Never appease them.
Never forget.

“Iran, they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military. If Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance,” Obama said.

I'm not sure--is he a gibbering idiot, or does he just think we are all idiots? Either way, he is not presidential material.

both Japan and Germany had large populations, strong industrial bases and well trained armies

But not nukes. Or stateless surrogate armies of suicidal terrorist infiltrators.

That 3G model of population, wealth and industrial base isn't extremely useful in assymetric warfare vs the US. Hence the term assymetric.

Asymmetric warfare only works against occupying forces. The US has no intention of occupying anybody. And Iran is just as afraid of Al-Queada as we are.

Iran is nothing more than hot air.

“Pretty much all the wars we ever fought in this nation have been against “tiny” countries: England, Spain, Mexico, North Korea, North Vietnam, Iraq...”

That’s an interesting way to look at it.

Obama apparently has no comprehension of what nuclear weapons can do.

Of course he doesn't.  Obama doesn't even know how many states there are.
