you need to study your history more,
and learn that actually the first nuclear
centrifuges that Iran bought were sold to them
by Americans. 1978.Study some more, you know.
You would not want to make such ignorant comments
somewhere else. You know, for your own sake.
Why should an anonymous care about YOUR white ignorance!?

Why should an anonymous care about YOUR white ignorance!?

Gee, thank you for caring about my (presumed white) ignorance enough to leave an anonymous comment. Very charitible of you.
(BTW, the centrifuge sale was 10 monthes before the Iranian revolution)

Please tell me what was "ignorant" about my post? It wasn't an attempt at an exhaustive history of the Iranian Nuke plan.
Google one if you like.
It was an attempt at sarcasm.

Let me explain-
Bleeding hearts on the left want the US to swoon and bow at any sabre rattling threats or moronic letter writing of the Iranian puppet-of-the-mullahs, er , President.

Those of us on the right would have preferred the death penalty given to Moussaui and wish no compromise with people who are invested in the destruction of ourselves and allies.

The joke, you see, anon (can I call you that?) is that we CAN give in to demands and desires of the terrorists and islamic radicals with strong action against them.
A twist was, I don't want to send centrifuges , reactors, or uranium, just live weapons. Get it? HA,Ha,ha.

I am new at this blogging, I thought the tone of this post was clearly sarcastic.

However, to be perfectly clear,
I would certainly rather deliver nuclear weapons to Iran via cruse missile, airplane or FedEx than to allow the Iranian snakes to have the means to carry out their STATED threats to free people and nations.

Please write again soon!

Regards ,
A (presumed white)ignoramous
