Iran freedom ping...
Thanks for the ping!
The author mixes a couple of things. First, it would not take a nuclear weapon, (hydrogen bomb.) An atomic bomb would be more than sufficient. Which is what I gather the author was trying to say.
Received the book last week. Hope to read it next weekend.
Correction: I just learned that Jerry Corsi's appearance on Hannity & Colmes has been rescheduled for Wednesday night, the 23rd.
The term "nuclear weapon" includes both fission (atomic) and fusion (hydrogen) bombs, so Dr. Corsi's statement is correct. The latter type of weapons is often described as "thermonuclear" due to the extremely high temperatures required to initiate a fusion reaction. Link.
Many college students in Iran on CNN this morning talking democracy in their nation.
Even one professor spoke up - he had to be in Iran - a professor here in America would be for the mullahs!
Not all of them, of course. However, it is true that the mullahs are using their enormous oil wealth to influence policy in the U.S. This includes financing numerous "Islamic studies" departments and positions in American universities, the occupants of which seem remarkably in tune with the regime's party line...
Psalms 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
It would be unforgivable for Israel to strike Iran at this time. The United States is doing a carrots and sticks approach and Israel needs to respect our efforts.
Israel's existance is threatened by a nuclear Iran. And so is ours.
What we're doing now with Iran is the same tactics we tried in North Korea.. Not very successful I'd say.
There is no way Israel will allow Iran to develope a nuclear device. They simply can't afford to. Bet on it.
I stand corrected, you are clearly right. I guess I need to cut back on the cold medicine while I am posting. ; )
For the record, I'm not saying that Israel should attack Iran...
...but Israel has to look out for Israel. They live with the threat (and the deadly attacks) on a daily basis. If they feel the need to protect themselves by attacking Iran, that's their business.
Our Carrot and Stick approach left us with a North Korean mess. We shouldn't make the same mistake with Iran.
