Have you seen the President's plea to Iran yet?

(I'm sorry that you will have to c&p these links), this is the plea from our President to Iran and Iran's response to him, doesn't look like his charm invoked the desired effect...

  • Diplomacy, idiocy, you can't really give it a name...because these leaders are unpredictable.....TELL ME THIS...why did they even mention Israel????? They have a hidden objective and could care less about us, the infidel, in their eyes. Do they respect Christiany and the Jewish community????If so, I don't have a problem with them.   BTW, we have a translated Koran my dh got overseas, it states clearly to "behead the infidel" and that is exactly what we are.banging head into wall

  • It's called idiocy. The men in that region only respond to strength., and while Obama is an eloquent speaker, commanding he is not. Also, these peoples version of their religion commands them to either bring people under their religion or kill them. You couldn't negotiate with kamikazee pilots and you will not be able to negotiate with suicide bombers and those who believe the same principles!

  • I did NOT say ALL...re read the answer..


    these peoples version of their religion commands them to either bring people under their religion or kill them.


    Now you can believe it s ugly or profiling or whatever you want but the REALITY is there ARE Muslim extremist who want nothing more than dead Americans and the leader of Iran is right up there with them! AND have you read the Koran, at all? There is a DIRECT QUOTE that says to kill the infidels. And the extremists take it that way. Ahmadinejad (sp?) is NOT going to negotiate...oh well, unless you agree to hand over Israel and bow down to him.  THAT man is crazy and EXTREME and all your feel good talks are just going to make him laugh!

  • No they are not but a good amount are.Their leader stated something to the effect of we need to rethink our relationship with IsraelI like diplomacy too but with certain types I feel you have to reach out but stand your ground as well as to not give them the idea they can just trample all over us and pull the wool over our eyes.

  • I don't need to re-read. You said "these people" when the topic was about the president talking/ making a plea to IRAN.

    The only reality here is the one you've made up in your head.

  • Khamenei set the bar impossibly high — demanding an overhaul of U.S. foreign policy, including giving up "unconditional support" for Israel and halting claims that Iran is seeking nuclear arms. Iran insists its nuclear program is only for peaceful energy purposes. "Have you released Iranian assets? Have you lifted oppressive sanctions? Have you given up mudslinging and making accusations against the great Iranian nation and its officials?" Khamenei said in a speech in the northeastern city of Mashhad. The crowd chanted "Death to America."


    These are NOT people who are willing to negotiate!

  • I have MADE UP in my HEAD Muslim extremists? Was 9/11 a figment of my imagination? Was the attack on the USS Cole a hallucination? And the suicide bombers on the news every other day are just mirages made up by the media!? THAT is crazy! and THAT is the thinking that terrifies me and makes me fear for the safety of my children. Only the strong survive. It's been the truth throughout history and right now that isn't us.
