in response to reader comment: Harrak strikes back (Mark Baratto, the victim of sopranos) Iran is the only country that colonized the USA

Mark said:
""Iran will not be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb ""

Harrak replied:
"I totally agree, but in your wishful dream only. My friend they already have it and if America uses nukes against Iran, the later will have a shore on the Mediterranean sea as the countries in between now may turn to a big lake and the Jordanians along with Iraqis and Israelis will re-incarnate into fish.."

Harrak, what are you babbling about. America, along with the EU and the Russians, are dealing with Iran from a position of strength. Mark is dead right, Iran will never have the chance to develop the Bomb. If Iran ever really does become a threat, the Russians and the U.S. will depopulate the entirety of Iran, and none of our allies in the region will be affected in the silghtest. Iran will be powerless to even respond, never mind hurt anybody.

The only reason this whole deal with Iran has gone on for so long is that none of the major power (US, the EU, and Russia) want to kill an entire country. That doesn't mean we can't, or won't. It just means that we have a lot more respect for the lives of people in the Muslim world than they themselves have. We are all 51% sweetheart, 49% bitch. If Iran keeps pushing its luck, the sweetheart side loses out, and Iran will suffer horribly.

And please don't try to bring up North Korea. North Korea is only alive today because China, Russia, and the U.S. all know that any one of them alone can contain any threat that might arise from there, and all three are working (somewhat) together on it. No real threat exists at this time. North Korea is all blow and no show. They know exactly how far they can push, and they always stay short of that line. They know that the day they cross it, they will be the recipient of a three-way bang from China, Russia, and the U.S. They know that South Korea will be an Island.

Harrak, you need to take a good look a Western history, and not just the era since the Vietnam war. There have always been times when we have walked away from minor fights like Vietnam. However, when the big fight comes along, we hurt people severely. It took almost a decade for the U.S. and England to respond to the German and Japanese threat, but we did. Who's culture and government was changed by WWII: the U.S and England, or Germany and Japan? As soon as you understand the changes wrought by WWII, you will understand just how quickly we can end our problem with the Muslim world.
