One: Are you saying that we are not going to war with Iran? Or that we are? How can a question be a "faulty initial premise when there is no premise to be faulty?
Two: I have endlessly covered the consequences of a US attack on Iran - endlessly.
three: I raise every single "serious policy issue" being discussed and summarize them.
And I would listen to arms control experts like Jeffrey Lewis and the Mossad before I would listen to the CIA who has been wrong about when every single nation who has the bomb today would get it.
btw - the year 2010 is just about right at their current rate of production. And if you bothered reading anything I write you'd know I oppose going to war with Iran.
But you're too busy trying to sound clever to make any kind of a valid point about me or my site.

Two things point to Iran desiring a nuclear weapon.
1. Until 2002, Iran received extensive help from the AQ Khan black market network of nuclear hardware and expertise. Khan has never - repeat never - assisted a clandestine nuclear program where a bomb was not the endgame.
2. The continuing efforts by Iran to conceal parts of their nuclear program. The IAEA is allowed now in Nantanz but the heavy water reactor (designed to produce plutonium) is still off limits as are some other facilities where we know there is activity related to the nuclear program.
Most experts - including those who are opposed to war with Iran - feel Iran is at the very least, developing the capability to build a bomb which would include a workable bomb design and delivery vehicle (there is evidence they are modifying the warhead on the Shahab 2 missile).
Taken all together, it is quite a compelling case.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 18.09.2007 @ 09:16
Good thing I rarely ban people for stupidity. Otherwise, you would have been gone after the first paragraph.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 17.09.2007 @ 10:51

Maybe if you read the above you wouldn't be in the dark. It's from the Rudy thread. I wrote it 30 seconds after you submitted your comment.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 16.09.2007 @ 11:40
Why would I ban you? Your idiotic comments are good for a laugh or two - even from my lefty readers. All you have to do to make your charge that I can't deal with a "diversity of ideas" look like tripe is to click on any thread on this blog.
And the fact that you read and commented on this post means, of course, I didn't ban you - that you are a paranoid nut case is another story.
I deleted your comment on the other thread for the use of an obscenity. Check that thread out and read what I wrote - I invited you to resubmit the same inane comment simply by removing the offensive word. Too much for ya? Thought so.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 16.09.2007 @ 10:20

Precisely. That's the basis for the ACU complaint against the Times and Moveon. That the Times was planning to run the ad on the day of Petraeus's testimony regardless of anything else.
It was an in kind political contribution by the Times - a violation of the law.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 15.09.2007 @ 18:45
Dear Mr. Billie Bob Ignoramous:
It's your IP address that would be banned - not your email address, dummy. And the fact that you can visit this website in the first place means you are not banned. If I were to ban you, you would get a message saying so.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 16.09.2007 @ 11:33
And if you got such a message, it's not from my end that you were banned because I haven't banned anyone in months.
OOOPS! Looks like you come out looking like the idiot you are, hey Billie Bob?Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 16.09.2007 @ 11:28
Please do not comment here ever again. You only embarrass yourself and make this site look bad.
The contributions from Enron were nowhere near $1.5 and were legal. The Hsu contributions are not.
Duh.Comment Posted By Rick Moran On 12.09.2007 @ 12:20
