    Get ready for a nuclear Iran.

    DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran said on Tuesday that President Hassan Rouhani had exchanged letters with U.S. President Barack Obama, confirming a rare contact between leaders of the two nations at loggerheads over Iran's nuclear program, the Syrian war and other issues.

    All I said is that they are pen pals, I didn't say anything about impeachment. :grin: Will Iran have nukes, absolutely. Are they pen pals? Absolutely. I think BO is trying nicely to get Iran to give up it's nukes.....I don't see Iran doing that. Do you guys?

    Why would Iran voluntary give up its nukes? That's really not a reasonable request given that the people asking are themselves nuclear powers. Other than covert hindering of their program, I'm not sure if there are any decent options. Its certainly not worth going to war over.

    to the OP===I suggest you go to the Ronald Reagan library and check out letters between he and foreign leaders. Including some we were at odds with.

    I agree but as crazy as some of the Mullahs are they just can't be trusted with the "red button" considering they want Israel to "vaporize." This is why they can't have nukes but they will. They have been just buying time for how many years now, 15-20. Once they announce they have the nukes then the terrorist breeding will just skyrocket in Iran and Hezbollah and Al-Queda will be embolden because they will say "The US couldn't stop Allah from getting nukes."

    Maybe due to your history of attacking everything he does?

    I attack his policies, not him. His policies will be the nail in the coffin of this country, granted politicians for the last 80 years have steered this country going toward the toilet, it's just that financially Obama has put us into hyper-drive. We will go all "Detroit on our debt." Socialism doesn't work, well it does until you run out of other people's money, that's where we are heading.

    Maybe so but knowing Iran's history and wanting a nuke so bad that they don't care about what sanctions we put on them. I am not holding my breath.

    Khamenei is intractable however exchanging some letters with a centrist may soften the situation and make some small progress toward a solution that everyone can live with. It's worth a try.....avoids an expensive war/conflict later.

    Wouldn't you rather Obama be penpals with Rouhani than listen to McCain sing "bomb, bomb, Iran"?

    Do you think he wouldn't complain about Obama's actions either way?
    I don't.

    I never wanted to go to Syria, Lybia and Iraq. Afghanistan I was okay with.

    if Iran gets nukes do you think that maybe Qatar and SA might want nukes too? Does a nuclear arms race in the ME concern you?

    If Iran has nukes that they can give to their subordinates (Hezbollah) to put on a ship to NY Harbor does that concern you? They would share no culpability as the weapon could not be traced back to them but NY would be wiped off the face of the map.

    Iran is not a rational state being led by rational people. They are the world's largest sponsor of terrorism. Do you recognize that fact?? Does it concern you that the world's largest sponsor of terrorism would have nuclear weapons capable of destroying American cities with no culpability??

    Iran is as "rational" of an actor as anyone else with nukes. So, that really doesnt concern me anymore than say, Russia, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and India possessing nuclear weapons (states with a varying history of long-simmering violent beefs, internal malcontents/troublemakers and alarming nuclear programs). I'm not for nuclear proliferation, but if the options boil down to "Iran acquiring nuclear capability" or "unilateral military intervention & regime change," I'd pick the former.

    Iran's running out the clock and Obama is too weak to do a damn thing about it.

    It's all lip service. We want Iran and N Korea with nukes. We need another enemy for the MIC.
