    What good are sanctions that allows weapons? Does this mean we hold back money and food but we allow them to buy weapons? WTF

    Iraq had all sorts of provisions on what weapons they were allowed to build and keep.

    You can't ask a country to completely disarm itself, but it's reasonable to ask them not to produce the most insane weapons.

    Why do you think invisibility has been outlawed?

    Every country has a right to defend it self.
    I'm just not too keen on the idea of Russia selling
    Iran missiles, jets, etc.

    yes, but we won the war and "took over" the country... "gave it back" with some requirements. We don't control Iran and invading seems like a pretty dumb idea.

    Please keep that in mind. I'm sure over the next 5-10 years it will happen.

    I don't like it because I'm sure the US will be going in there in the foreseeable future.

    After the disaster that is Iraq, I cannot fathom how the people and congress would allow an invasion of Iran.

    Only this Admin would break the laws to do it and they're gone before we can restock resources. I don't see any canditates doing that except for McCain or Edwards... neither will win.
