The powers in Iran are vile and should be taken seriously. There hasn't been a speech out of Iran, that I have heard, that doesn't make their point that they will wipe Israel off the map. We are being warned that they intend to do just that; they are in the process of making nuclear warheads and they're getting very close; that is confirmed.

So I say to you, as a Jew, not living in Israel, it's very easy for you to say; "don't do anything rash"! But suppose it was America Iran was threatening, and we found out their warheads were capable of reaching us...what would you think then? Would you say, hold off, let's wait till they hit us?

I believe you give President Obama too much credit. He has already proven that he has no problem with killing; as long as it's not his finger on the actual trigger! Need I point out the Drone hits; for which had Bush used them in this way, liberals would have been foaming at the mouth! And don't forget, while this man personally found "waterboarding" absolute torture, he had no problem as an Illinois State Senator voting not just once, but three times, to not give medical attention to a "late term" botched abortion. You know, the baby's born alive, and you just let it lie there to struggle and die. Now, that's real torture!
