The real problem is that Abbas and Mubarak are old men. How much time do they have left? Maybe ten years at most. After that it's hot blooded young men and there's lots of them. Acting on an impulse. That sort of thing. The problem with Iran is that both Israel and the United States somehow thought that Ahmadinejad was a good thing. War isn't always the solution. Selling arms isn't always the solution either. But getting back to Ahmadinejad. Such a provocative leader. Why let a kid with a box of matches like him get into a dynamite shack? I wouldn't have let him do it. The other guy would have shifted some power around but maybe not have provoked people? Shifting power around doesn't necessarily get people killed. But ofcourse it might eventually and does anyway. But you know, it doesn't have to happen in our lifetimes. I don't believe in the 2012 gig. That's another Y2K scam. Ahmadinejad is dangerous. If he throws that stone, don't attack Iran. Use the potty humour or something else. You heard what the other guy said during the election? People don't have respect for Ahmadinejad. I can still write jokes. LOL!
