Yes I knew about that, but did Iran play, YES.
One of the German ministers said that he didn't want the Iranian President to come to Germany but he would allow them because this wasn't about politics.
cien_bolas wrote:i know nuclear weapons are really dangerous. the question in fact is: how do you know nuclear weapons are dangerous, just because they are in hands of iran? you got nuclear weapons too, and that also makes the US dangerous?
Yes it does, like I said Nuclear Weapons have the power to destabilize to countries and destroy countries. I am not arguing with that, the US government are hypocrites by allowing India to have nuclear weapons but not Iran. It should be the same across the board.
cien_bolas wrote:however, a good point is that iran is governed by hamas.
This is a mute point, look Iran won't do anything. They are a bunch of bluffers, there will be a lot of foreign investment for oil and natural gas, from China and India. So they won't do anything to scare away foreign investment. It is basic global investment and global business. Especially with all the problems in Nigeria right now/

didn't you know the US blocked venezuela's business with russia so they could not get a stronger army?
That statement, because hmm let me see why did Venezuela go to Russia for business because hmm lets see Because the US wouldn't sell them any more parts for their AMERICAN made F-16s
How hypocritical is that. The only reason Venezuela went to Russia, is because the US stopped selling them military technology. Did we try to block the deal yes, but did we succeed.
Cien, you yourself make it sound like the US is evil and trying to destroy countries, but you forget that our economies are linked together. That all of Latin America and the US have new enemies ie China and India.
Lets see from another article *cough cough*
A January 2006 poll indicated that 46 percent of Venezuelans held an unfavorable view of Bush, though Leon pointed out that Bush fares about the same or even worse in U.S. opinion polls. Some experts believe Chavez's anti-American rhetoric is aimed more at boosting his popularity outside Venezuela than in winning the hearts and minds of his compatriots.
"Venezuela is a country whose principal relations, whose principal markets, where people go to study, is the United States," said Ana Maria Sanjuan, a sociologist at the Central University of Venezuela.
"In Venezuela, there doesn't exist an objective reason for anti-imperialism like Cubans have because of the embargo," she said.
Even Venezuelans who participated last month in war games to prepare for an invasion said they don't believe U.S. Marines will land here anytime soon.
"Our countries are friends," said Henry Avila, 36, a fisherman who was helping transport weapons to counter an imaginary occupation force. "At no point are they going to invade."
Still, with bilateral relations at a nadir, Venezuelan and U.S. officials are currying favor in each other's countries through direct assistance.
While Chavez has given discounted heating fuel to low-income residents in New York, Massachusetts and other states, U.S. Ambassador Brownfield spent one morning last month donating 17 desktop computers to a youth center in La Vega, a hillside slum in Caracas.
There, Brownfield received a warm greeting--a marked contrast with the April incident when his car was egged.
"This donation is very, very important," said Maria Flores, a Catholic nun who is the center's director. "An enemy wouldn't help us in this manner."
*cough cough* gosh Venezuela really hates us *cough cough*
God I gotta clear my throat.
"See, free nations are peaceful nations. Free nations don't attack each other. Free nations don't develop weapons of mass destruction." â€”George W. Bush, Milwaukee, Wis., Oct. 3, 2003
