Everyone must read the quran and you will obtain a better understanding of islam, this is NOT a religion of PEACE but a religion of WAR and MURDER. This is one of the countries spoken about in our Holy Bible that will be in the fore front of the last war so everyone be ready.

Jimmy Carter completely screwed up the relationship we had with our best ally in the Middle East. The Shah was a great friend to the UNITED STATES and we trained their Air Force. The Iranian people are stuck with this theocracy.
Any properly educated person would NOT support their current leadership.
You control people by limiting their education. Sound familiar?

You cannot negotiate with a country committed to the religious philosophy that demands the destruction or total subjugation of their enemies – that is all unbelievers by their definition. We are fools to think otherwise. Subjugation or destruction are our only choices. Face it!

Iranians are master negotiators but NEVER tell the truth or kept a single agreement in their entire history. They must truly be the greatest liars this world has ever known.

Persia has been assertive and willing to enter war since Darius the Great. They only understand power. They will continue to cause serious problems with loss of Western life either directly or thru their satellite states/ groups. They won’t screw with Israel because they know what would happen if they did. We need to show them we are as willing to respond as Israel.

Mark Jebe, You are absolutely correct. Iran has also a number of other delivery systems to nuke almost anywhere in the world. There short range ballistic missiles have a 500 mile range. There aircraft are small but could carry a sizable payload of free fall ordnance that have a nuclear warhead. Crated bombs in rental trucks crossing into neighboring countries that are against the mullah regime in Iran are possibility.

I think that pres. Trump did the right thing by stopping his response cause it would have been a huge escalation of force which Iran would only see as the green light to continue on with more destructive mid-east behavior. At this point, a measured response is the right way to proceed. That can happen any time in the future. I don’t like seeing any president sending our troops into battle to fight some dirty little war over a downed drone. There have been far to many body bags coming home to fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, wives, children since WWII.

No one who has not read at least the first Chapter of the Koran has any right to join any conversation concerning Islamics! The Koran is available to read on the internet – NO EXCUSE! If you are not willing to do at least the minimum to be informed, your opinion is ONLY NOISE!!

The fact is that, if you are not Islamic, you are an infidel having no worth! They have no respect for infidels. They only respect raw power. “Teddy” had it right, “Walk softly but carry a big stick!”

How do you trust diplomatic dialogue with a nation who’s sole political and religious intent is to bring forth their Muslim messiah through global conflict? The sixth president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, was a prime vocal example of this mentality. I see Mark Jebe has already commented more thoroughly than I have.

Keep John Kerry out of Iran and hit him with violating the Logan Act. The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. § 953, enacted January 30, 1799 ()) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.

Sometimes, “we” have been our own worst enemy in decisions and actions – just as is happening today with the far left liberal approach so many are pushing. When Carter, during his term, deposed the Shaw and we vilified his wife for having too many shoes in her closet, we created a vacuum that was filled by the rigid crazies who were willing to kill and maim in order to rule. A similar situation occurred when we deposed the murderous Iraq dictatorship, and ISIS became a major middle east threat. These third-world countries are going to continue their internal strife and warring factions as long as they exist. Radicals will fill any vacuum created. Any action taken should be surgical, precise and effective against those who lead such factions. Aid and intervention must be strategically applied to be effective.

I think we should send them a map of their country with the coordinates of each 50 or 100 megaton nuke that it would take to turn the entire place into a pit of white hot gravel. Then calmly tell them that if you mess with us, THIS is what you can expect. Occasionally, when you are the biggest, baddest guy on the block, you have to act that way. They want to join Allah, we should offer to help them along.

Considering the US has less than a 30% approval rating in most of the world, I say pull ALL of our troops out of all those countries we saved THREE TIMES last century and tell them cry to someone else next time they’re in trouble. I’m sure they’ll love Putin,,, doesn’t everybody?

Koran teaches it’s ok to lie for the benefit of Allah. So how do you negotiate with someone who will lie to your face. I would stiffen sanctions, & not only have a military presence, but a military escort on the pathway of the oil tankers, any ship or boat which approaches , get 1 warning verbal, & 1 warning bow shot. If it persists blow it out of the water. A strong stance is the only thing these people respect or adhere to. History teaches us from all the past administrations they pretend to follow agreements then don’t, & want to renegotiate, while doing whatever they want .

Get us out of the Middle East intirely. Bring our troops home. And protect our borders !!! We are tired of the crap that the war mongers in DC keep shoveling down our throats. Enough Already !!! We have plenty to do right here at home. Fire Bolton and Pompaio. They are part of the neocon Deep State and they do not have America’s best interest at hand. Trump you promised to get our troops back home !!! You also promised to close the border with Mexico !!! What in God’s name are you doing ???? They just passed the red flag laws here in Nevada and you were responsible for that !!!! Again great on the economy !! But pure Crap on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, on this your head is in the sand !!! You need better advisors. The ones you have now are working for the DemonRats !!!

Sanctions are working only to a certain extent. Iran has now committed acts of war with the bombing of 4 tankers, unarmed ships. Crews lives at risk and had to be rescued by nearby ships. I would support strategic targeted strikes on military operations and hardware in Iran to show them that their aggression must stop. That and stronger and stronger sanctions must continue.

It is now obvious that the useless ass-kisser we had as president for eight years proved that the ideological nuts that run Iran will never listen to reason. Appeasement never works with fanatical dictatorships. Wasn’t the horrors of WW II enough to prove this? As a direct result of Obama and the American Communist Party’s political idiocy, the Iranians undoubtedly have the atom bomb by now. It is only a question of where and when they will use it. We should have helped the Israelis bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities into oblivion when they wanted to. Unfortunately, it is too late now.

There will never be peace in the middle east. Regardless. There is always a fraction of the Iranian population that is intent on the destruction of the infidel, the great satan. So how does the military determine the few friends or indifferent from those who wish to kill us? Intelligence only goes so far. There is only one solution and there is not a person here nor anyone in office that has the fortitude to make that call.

This is all very sensitive and I’m honestly scared for the future of America as our forefathers intended it to be. Not enough us us noticed while we were being set up by the enemies and misguided within the previous administration, right down to what is/is not being taught in schools.
Our own legal system and freedom of speech allowed it to happen. Now our freedom is being used against us by misguided citizens to destroy values, Peaceful religious practice, and even the unborn child’s right to life.
Pray for America and God help us to get through this, restore and protect our military, our First Family and our children. Amen

Article II, Section 4 of The Constitution of the United States states: “The President, Vice-President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Article III, Section 3 states in part: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

If what obama did doesn’t qualify as giving our enemy aid and comfort, I don’t know what does! And the press and Congress ignored it all!

When Obama gave them everything they wanted, we heard little from them as they continued their nuclear program with a huge monetary injection from Barry the Scumbag. When our current President (that’s right liberal clowns, our duly elected President) reversed the Iran “deal,” they are now back to the old “death to America” mantra.

You don’t keep rattlesnakes in your backyard for pets for your children, because they are seriously dangerous. Likewise, you don’t make deals with terrorists! Sanctions don’t mean anything to the scum in charge of Iran. They will gladly sacrifice their fellow Iranians while making sure the devoutly insane are taken care of.

Iran will not be tamed or bribed, and only a delusional fool would think such a response is reasonable and acceptable. Read your history books…they have hated and caused chaos for thousands of years!

Islam has been at war with every other religion (even those without religion) ever since their beginning. They believe that it is their solemn duty in life to spread Islam to the entire world and to kill everyone that refuses to convert. They don’t want peace or peaceful coexistence with the rest of humanity. They want a 100 percent Islamic world.

They indoctrinate their children from birth to believe this idea of spreading Islam to every inch of our world. To them, each of us are nothing more than rabid mongrel dogs that need to be destroyed at all cost.

They are content with using any means to destroy the Infidel (us!). If they ever gain nuclear weapons, you can be assured that they will use them. They can’t be paid off or bargained with, they are committed to their objective of a Islamic world.

Like a fool, or perhaps a sympathetic collaborator, Obama allowed them to pursue their dream of nuclear power and gave them billions of dollars to continue nuclear research and eventually will lead to their building nuclear weapons.

If the people of this world don’t stop Iran’s nuclear program soon, millions if not billions of people will die.

Time for some midnight visits from the SEALS to the Iranian Navy plant explosives on their hulls
with remote detonators that will disable their boats in the area preferably at sea set them adrift
with no propulsion. And for their Subs that they bought from Russia depth charges to take out
the propellers and rudders.

Iranians chant, “Death to America.” They had a great & evil relationship with Obama. They are not our friends. Why would anyone believe they would comply with any negotiated “rules?” It is my belief that ALL middle-eastern countries + Russia are not to be trusted. Period. We are no longer dependent on them for oil, etc. Maybe increased sanctions would be an option, but after the boatload of cash sent to them by Obama, sanctions with financial repercussions may not even slow them down. I hope they are recognizant that we no longer have a wimp for president.

I REALLY DO SUPPORT MOST OF THE POSITIONS OF AMAC WHICH IS WHY I DROPPED MEMBERSHIP IN AARP AND JOINED AMAC.
DID THE DESIGNERS OF YOUR POLLS EVER CONSIDER THAT PUTTING IN QUALIFICATIONS OR MAKING 2 STATEMENTS FOR 1 CHOICE CAN ELIMINATE GOOD RESPONSES. FOR EXAMPLE IN TODAY’S POLL, ONE CHOICE SAYS THAT IRAN IS A ROGUE NATION THAT ENDORSES STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM. OF COURSE THAT IS TRUE, SO WHY COMPLICATE THAT CHOICE BY SUGGESTING THE ONLY ANSWER IS TO ISOLATE THEM WHEN THE STATEMENT IS TRUE FOR ANY OF THE OTHER CHOICES? WE HAVE TO TALK TO OUR ENEMIES. AGAIN THAT IS A TRUE STATEMENT THAT COULD BE APPLIED TO ALL 4 CHOICES. THE SECOND AND THIRD CHOICES ARE NOT NECESSARILY MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. I FIND THAT WHILE I USUALLY AGREE WITH MANY OF YOUR RESPONDERS, I CANNOT ACCEPT SOME OF THOSE STATEMENTS OR QUALIFIERS. I REALLY DISLIKE SELECTING A COURSE OF ACTION THAT INCLUDES IDEAS WITH WHICH I DISAGREE WHILE EXCLUDING OTHER POSSIBILITIES. WHY NOT SIMPLIFY YOUR RESPONSES? WHY NOT PUT A LIST OF OPTIONS THAT ALLOWS THE VOTER TO CHECK ALL THAT APPLY? ‘NOT SURE’ APPEARS TO BE A CATCHALL FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT AGREE WITH SOMETHING IN ANY CHOICE ALTHOUGH IT IS A LEGITIMATE CHOICE. I WOULD NOT ENDORSE IT, BUT I SUSPECT THAT ‘BOMB THE CRAP OUT OF THEM’ WOULD ACTUALLY GET MORE VOTES THAN 2 OF YOUR CHOICES THE WAY THEY ARE WORDED.

There is no negotiation with evil. God doesn’t negotiate with Satan or Lucifer. God banished them. Iran, its leaders and its religion should be banished from the community of man. We will never have peace in our world till the likes of Iran is banished.

This is a no brainer !!! Put them on notice, they will be isolated from the rest of the world entirely. One more act of terrorism by them, sanctions violation, or threat to another nation will result in result in swift and deadly military action without any ground troops being involved. No more discussion until they allow a unrestricted inspection of the entire nation to prove they have no nuclear weapons. If found they must be immediately surrendered to the U.N.. All threats and violence stops immediately and after a period of time sanctions will be dropped with understanding that if they do not continue to live peacefully with other nations and proof of them funding terrorism surfaces sanctions will be reinstated permanently.
