    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    That sort of thing only works with people who possess at least a sliver of rationality.

    When you believe your mission is ordained by a dusty old book and by a far away deity who will reward you after your death, and further, you are indoctrinated to reject all attempts to apply reason to your faith, the outcome is quite obvious. We've seen it many times already.

    If those sorts of people seize power, that is when we should start worrying.

    It's a "powder keg" over there and the powder is highly radioactive.

    Do unto others before they do you.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    The solution is spelled "DIPLOMATIC-MILITARY." In other words the carrot and stick approach. Unfortunately carrots are becoming less tasteful in our current world situation. I don't care where the carrot comes from, as long as it works. Thank God all the original Nuke Club members got a grip, and the Cold War is over. I would hope that enough world leaders can see the danger of a MidEast arms race and join together to stop it in it's infancy.

    "Riyahd will build nuclear weapons..."
    That headline says a lot. Are other SA cities already building? Are there no more complete nukes for sale?

    Surely if the King wanted a nuke badly enough, he could buy one today with his pocket change. And he's not stupid enough to wait until Iran is operational to put his program in place.

    For as much as the Arab countries criticize Israel, the US, and the rest of the world as a "united" front, they sure do hate each other.

    You know what happens when you apply tremendous heat to sand?

    Ive seen war but sometimes war is necessary imo. It is time we just simply recall 100% of our forces back to the good old US. Let them rest for 3 months and then lay the HAMMER of WRATH down upon anyone who threatens cherished human life with their evil ways.

    Hence the need for the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI aka "Star Wars"). You need to be able to defend yourself and bomb the other guy out of existence, and let it be known you can do both.
