Turn around,
Go back down,
Back the way you came,
Can’t you see that flash of fire ten times brighter than the day?
And behold a mighty city broken in the dust again,

Obastard is stupid enough to think it isn’t fair if terrorist sponsoring states don’t have nuclear weapons.

Iran will eventually get the bomb, though. If they do, anything Obama does won’t matter.

“Iran could build a nuclear bomb within as little as a month,”

Whereas our government can’t build a website in three years.

They’ve been saying Iran will get the Bomb in “x” number of months, for the last 10 years or so. I’d say it’s safe to say, they have had that capability for while now, and have threatened its use through back channels. It certainly would explain recent and highly self-destructive U.S. foreign policy initiatives in the ME.

Reminds me of the failures to predict the USSR and North Korea getting the bomb.

If so, then Israel is about 29 days away from DEFCON 2

So, if it’s for DC, who’s complaining?

If the Mullahs are dead, does the bomb matter?

Don’t pay any attention to U.S. Institute for Science and International Security .

Watch the Israeli’s, they will tell you in no uncertain terms when Iran is getting close. It will be a shot heard round the world.

When the Iranians launch nukes, it will only be a tactic to distract us from hysterical, bipartisan socialist political speech.

Depends on where they hit.

And if one is used to deliver a high-altitude EMP, who will be able to hear said speech if the electronics (including the vaunted teleprompter) are all kaput?
