Iran is the eighteenth largest country in the world after Libya and before Mongolia. Its area roughly equals that of the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and Germany combined, or slightly less than the state of Alaska.Oh, did I see Germany in there? Well not to worry, Germany is so small it would never threaten anyone. I guess maybe if they were ever bent on global domination and started attacking their neighbors. Or maybe if they started to pursue nuclear weapons. Or maybe if they ... oh wait, they did those things and we had to sacrifice over 400,000 American lives and almost 4% of the global population while we bombed them back into the stone age.
Barack, this is not the same situation as Regan talking to the USSR. You can not discuss global politics and playing nice with others with countries and dictators that openly sponsor terrorism. I tell you one thing that is not tiny, and that's how naive you are and how dangerous for our country you would be.
Waiting to show Iran our military strength, as you insinuate in your speech, until they have acted would be too late. It is not acceptable for either Israel, the United States, or any other country to suffer the devastating whim of Ahmadinejad when we have the right as a civilized planet to keep him in check.
Barack, America simply can not afford your naive approach to global politics or your wife's lack of pride in our country.
##That's my opinion##
