    Hypocrisy is not the point ? The extreme danger of a Hierocracy with a nuclear weapon is! It is a ridiculous notion to justify one incorrect act with another of equal stupidity. What are we dealing with? Iran's Supreme Leader said it was a crime to cast doubt on the June election but does not mention the crime of killing or torturing your own citizens. Yemen seizes ship loaded with Iranian weaponry. Pakistan Frees 11 Iran Security Officers. Group Was Initially Accused of Illegally Crossing Border. And then there is the ?Death to..? mentality. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said as long as Israel was in possession of atomic weapons, Iran would not halt its nuclear program. This is a clear statement of intent to produce a nuclear weapon. What do you need the green glow in your living room? We are not dealing with rational men. As with any extreme ideology to survive in the long run they need to eliminate internal and external opposition.
