Well the difference is that a nut might do something as self destructive as launching a nuclear attack against somebody who also has nukes. A person that only talks like a nut, but still very much likes to live, would not do that. Where we part ways is whether they are nuts or just talking like nut...

1 million people died in the Iraq war. As has been asked before, how did these people die? you'll find the Lancet numbers which I presume you are quoting include those who died of pre-existing cancer but lacked access to top rate medical facilities. One doesn't normally count terminal cancer as a c...

Seems unrealistic to me. They would have their hands full with the people on the streets. IMHO the prospect of a nuclear exchange with Israel would only help their cause, IF Iran clearly was the first to be agressive there. So your confident that even if desperate and facing their own violent overt...

Why would that make any difference? You think that they would fear their government to much then? No, not at all. As I said later in my post, the problem is what the nuclear armed Republican Guard is going to do when desperate. If their choice is lose power or start a nuclear exchange with Israel t...

I dont see it that way at all. Why would that be? You'll have to clarify that. What part don't you see that way. Surely you see at least that an Iranian civil goes from desirable now, to very much less desirable after the leadership is armed with nukes? Oh yes they do. They all do. They dont want t...

The islamic leadership wants a single, united arab nation. Islam is what will allow them to do that. The Iranian Ayatollahs most certainly do NOT want a single, united Arab nation. A single, united Arab nation would go to war with them, as they did before using Saddam as their proxy. The Iranians a...

How long do you think, he can last like this? I say he will be gone soon enough. By soon enough, you mean before Iran's nuclear weapons program bears fruit, right? Because if that happens first, the movement will die. A civil war or uprising is no longer a win for anybody after the republican guard...

If only we had some intelligent fellow with access to the best intelligence information in some strong position of authority that could act on such information, and who's judgement we could trust.

Careful there. That sounds like you've abandoned pragmatism and become an idealist...

But this instance is much more than mundane political quibbling. It's nothing less than trivialization of the Constitution. You say potato... I'm pretty sure the politicians collectively don't care what direction their actions are taking the nation, they care about what is in their own self interes...

On the other hand, he could really be a religiously fanatical nut. I have met my share of nuts, religious and otherwise. (Some might say I'm a nut. :) ) They DO exist, and they think all sorts of kooky stuff. I have known people who believe the rapture is coming and that the righteous will simply d...

We keep giving them MONEY. Among other things, which is why I am so interested in alternative energy sources. We definitely need to stop that Absolutely. The thing is that the less we do business with them the more we isolate them, the less of a problem they will be. People dont understand how this...

Religion is based on faith, Engineering is mainly based on verified knowledge. I always considered the two as being on diverging roads. I have never been able to understand how some engineers can reconcile both. Maybe someone can share his experience, it could be an interesting discussion. I'll sha...

Not sure if you read the link. My recollection of the link is it cites Fox News. Yup. It does. Re-read the link. Yes, but there is no link in that article to that alleged Fox news. We have a saying here "Paper is patient", which means that you can write anything on it and it does not care...
