Someone wrote to lecture me about Iranian universities and cleverness. I think it was "curious." Well, lovely. What will that matter when the Revolutionary Guard and their Howza enablers draw the enmity of the whole world onto the Iranian people, Persians, etc.?
The United States is a remarkably primitive state in terms of its understanding of the outer world. As an elitist, I attribute that to the leveling process so favored by the modern world. Jefferson did not intend this.
In any event, one must face the issue of what US policy should be towards Iran in the context of the Iranian state's manifest intention to "trick f—k" the world into inaction while it achieves the status of a nuclear capable state.
After some thought it is my opinion that we should do everything we can to impede Iran's progress towards nuclear power status while preparing ourselves for the day when the Iranian government explodes a device in the "Dasht-e-Kevir" (more Arabic loan words, did these people not have a language of their own?)
When that happens, (in spite of our sabotage), we must serve notice on Iran that a combat use of nuclear weapons will immediately lead to a total destruction of Iran by the United States.
Sorry, Israel. pl
