  •  On Pakistan (none)
    Slightly OT, but Pakistan has a vested interest in the Taliban/AQ fighters remaining active in Afghanistan, because it makes them a major from in the "War on Terror", giving them power and resources they would not have if the conflict is over. There is evidence that elements in northern Pakistan are actually aiding the Islamist fighters.

    If USA uses nikes on Iran, I dont think there would be a Muslim country on Earth that would not be outraged to the point of opposing US interests, it would just be beyond the pale.

    Bush has had his crosshair on Iran since before the operation in Iraq and is just looking for an excuse to take them out, but nukes - wow.

    This is a major mistake. I suppported Iraq solely on humanitarian grounds, but Iran would be totally baseless and completely insane.

    •  My, my. Did he say "crosshair"? (none)
      Might get a chap all "upset" with that kind of "talk" and all! "Crosshair"? "Hair"? Oh, my! I think I might be be getting "Upset!" "Hair?" Hair! Crosshair!"

    •  Which is to say... (4.00)
      If USA uses nikes on Iran

      I thought the shoe-bombs had delivery problems?


      •  Nike is the Greek Goddess of Victory (none)
        "To Nike (Victory), Fumigation from Manna. O powerful Nike, by men desired, with adverse breasts to dreadful fury fired, thee I invoke, whose might alone can quell contending rage and molestation fell. `Tis thine in battle to confer the crown, the victor's prize, the mark of sweet renown; for thou rulest all things, Nike divine! And glorious strife, and joyful shouts are thine. Come, mighty Goddess, and thy suppliant bless, with sparkling eyes, elated with success; may deeds illustrious thy protection claim, and find, led on by thee, immortal fame." -Orphic Hymn 33 to Nike"When golden Nike nursed him on her bosom in their land." -Pindar Isthmian 2 ant2
