bristopen, there are any number of beliefs out there that some might consider odd. that's OK. Iran is a little different. here you have a nation led by a man who believes that he has been chosen to usher in his "messiah". he believes that chaos needs to be created, and that another nation needs to be destroyed in order for him to fulfill his mission. when a leader has means and motive, and when they have already demonstrated a willingness to fund and engage in terrorism, it's pretty clear that you have a present threat.
the fact that he is advertising his intentions and acting on them, ought to get our attention.
wits end, you have a loving god, but there are plenty of unloving people out there. i am smart enough to understand that.
jerrymac, :-D did you get lost?
