    Make a deal but verify . Let diplomacy and inspectors do there job, not like in 2003 /Iraq. AND put those Likudnik/PNAC shills for Netanyahu back in their holes. Who funded Newt's campaign over 80%

      Thank you for a well stated, factual statement. Nitwityahoo only wants war. As for Sheldon A., he is being investigated for criminal corruption. Memos from his former heads of accounting and legal depts. have both told him that he was in danger of prosecution for specific anti-corruption laws. Both were immediately fired. Of course he backed a morally corrupt clown like Snooty Newt

    The host Plus Peter Feinert sound like Neville Chamberlain peace at any cost to others. When are people going to learn that when somebody says they want to destroy you them mean it. The only way to stop that kind of threat is to kill them first. We will either fight these religious fanatics in the Mideast or eventually you are going to fight them in the streets of New York city. The American public because of the Bush lie in Iraq has lost the taste of war but must be told that war is inevitable it will either be in the USA or Mideast. where would we prefer to fight

      Religious zealots come in all stripes , Christian fundamentalists, hard core self righteous Zionists, as well as Muslims. Tactics vary as a function of alternatives available to each. All are "right" and all have their book to prove it.
