Well this joke is just stupid considering Obama has been trying to get peace talk with Iran and has made it very clear that he does not want to invade.

Anyone could tell me when exactly was this cartoon published and in what context?? After what announcement by the US for example or a big incident that made Latuff draw this cartoon?

Yes. Our government continues to lie to us Americans and terrify the world, leaving kids like me to clean up these fat conservative devils' mess. Tell me. Mr. Latuff, how many gallons of each others blood is worth one drop of oil?

Yeah, possession of nuke weapon should be a monopoly of the wealthy and righteous nations. Everyone else should live in the grace of our mercy.

No. Nuclear weapons should be in the possession of responsible and stable countries. Not in the hands of dictatorships that seek to destroy other nations based on idealism, which is pretty much what Iran is.

I personally think that nukes are ridiculous and that no one should have them. Only in a more perfect world, I suppose.

That's the current US policy- they try to get the unrestricted "right" to military action against any country they "dislike".
US Army military build-ups are for just one thing - to create a force of proportions, not encountered since "glory" days of nazi "wehrmacht"

so, don't get yourself fooled by one single caricaturist.
the line of obama is clear: No nuclear weapons, No War in Iraq and health insurance for every american people. there's no bad thing in that.

The Iran is building nuclear power stations, and is testing long range missiles.
I can understand why the US government want's some economic sanctions against Iran. Sanctions are better than invasions and this is some stuff obama don't want to deal with.

I know that the republicans started a hate campaign against obama, but don't believe every bullshit you hear or read. He definitely is the most intelligent, eloquent and charming president america have seen for a long long time.
Make the best of it, you'll NOT find a better one.

If you payed attention you'd see that Latuff's is in no way related to the hate campaign that the republicans have been running in the US, in fact he's Brazilian. It's not true that the whole world loves Obama, his policies are almost identical to the early Clinton administration.
I agree he is intelligent, eloquent and charming, but this makes him all the more dangerous because people are more easily swayed to support him in acts of war.

Also, why shouldn't Iran be allowed to have their own nuclear missile program? Until the rest of the 1st world completes nuclear proliferation they have as much of a right as any other sovereign country to build their military power to an equal level. Until we can lead by example we have no right to take action.

I'm also not related to the hate campaigns, 'cause I'm no american.
But this fact doesn't mean I'm not able to record something like this exists. And people are just able to form an opinion based on the things they see and hear. I think Latuff's doing the same. And if you hear "Obama's bad, 'cause he's doing stuff like this or that" you believe it.
I never said the whole world loves him and for sure his policies are almost identical to Clintons, he also is democrat, but where is the horrific part in that?
I personally prefer an intelligent president to a foolish one. What is more dangerous? A president who knows what he's doing or a president who have totally no idea?
Obama want's to end up war. This is a good intention in every way. He also signed a disarmament treaty with Medvedev. And this is a change-over to the Iran.
Why shouldn't Iran be able to have their own nuclear missile program? 'Cause with this weapons people and animals get killed, environment gets contaminated and the people who have no choice but to live in this "dirty" places give birth to malformed, handicapped children. All they leave is death and destruction by just one click on the wrong button. Nuclear weapons are nothing anyone should own and the world definitively doesn't need more of them.

I don't think economic sanctions are a good idea, they just hurt the Iranian people, while the elite are able to get smuggled good from black market sources.

Frankly the US can't do anything about Iran without addressing issues with China and Russia. Obviously some sort of 'gentleman's agreement' would need to be brokered before they will agree to stop doing business in Iran. Economically this agreement would need to outweigh future Russian and Chinese profits in the region.

Once diplomatically isolated, the Iranian nuclear program would be either forced to shut down for lack of materials, or else be delayed for decades.

Above all the US needs to convince the Iranian people that it is not the enemy, and that we sincerely hope that Iran will advance into the future as a non nuclear nation with its own goals and ambitions that we will only interfere in from time to time (call it dabbling) to protect free trade and the rights of US property owners in the region. Oh, and we also want to sell your resources for $.

It is interesting to see how people take these things. I would say that if I had not seen videos of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stating his desire to wipe out other countries once he has obtained the ability to do so, I could care less if Iran began Nuclear development. Now, if the people of Iran can get rid of Ahmadinejad and make sure that any enriched nuclear material isn't going to be used for armament, there should be no reason not to let them.

I really would prefer that humans begin to live in a way that is more harmonious with nature, and reduce our energy dependance so that we wouldn't need to use nuclear power. Unfortunately, I cannot see that happening any time soon.

However the shady behaviour of Iran regarding nuclear material doesn't really help its case. If its nuclear programs were of power generation nature, you'd probably think Iran would be a little more transparent in their efforts - otherwise countries like the US have no other way to react than in one that assumes hostile intention. Geopolitics, etc.

Sadly I don't remember the sources where I read this nor the exact numbers, but I did read while Iran wanted to rise the percentage of enriched uranium, that number was still far from what you need to glue a nuke together. I don't know if that's what they said or whether somebody checked that, sadly.
However, I still don't support the double-morale here. USA got nukes worldwide. There are even some nukes under US-control in Germany (<- where I'm living, so I got a bit on info on that location). But Iran isn't allowed to have nukes because... because apparently the USA are the only ones who know what's good for the world and has to control everybody with their weapons.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to see any country with nukes. But it's sort of stupid to sit in a tank and yell to that person not to take one more step in the general direction of the next weapons store (regardless of whether or not they want to go in there).

The US is working to eliminate its nuclear arms and proliferation of nukes world wide. As what was seen through the Cold War, the US has demonstrated responsibility and tremendous restraint over the ownership of such arms. It's countries with erratic and unpredictable governments seeking the weapon that deems it necessary for the US to flaunt its nuclear deterrent, especially when leaders like Ahmadinejad say that countries like Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth. Iran and North Korea both have been treading a fine line that rightfully makes the US and western world anxious and aggressive in dealing with such a threatening known unknown. Especially after such comments made against neighbouring states in relation to its ambiguous nuclear ambitions. Look at governments and geopolitical all you want but in my eyes I worry for the people that live in those states. It takes one person at the helm to make a decision that ends millions of lives. Iran has a wonderful culture, it's just under a state run by theocratic pinheads.

This is my two cents also. Isn't the nuclear stockpile in Germany the result from Cold War pacts as well?

Do you have a link to that source you cited? I can't really take your word for it if I don't know who wrote it and in what context.

This is a bit late but here's a bit of trivia:-
The infamous Najjad statement where he says Israel should be wiped off the face of the Earth ? mis-translation!
he actually said "Zionism needs to be wiped off this page of history" or something along these lines.

well may be it is wrong for iran to gain nuclear weapons
but israel doesn't have the exlusive rights on those in the middle east
disarming israel of such weapons would be a a great step forward to stop iran from making them

and again it's not a US issue it's a UN issue, who appointed the states kings of the world.

the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should investigate the situation , then condemn iran ifanything is out of order, but till now they didn't, and when they do then they should notify the UN and they take action. what does the US want from this whole deal

I do exactly that, all television media is sensationalist reporting made on the purpose of collecting money from its respective demographics. I don't watch TV. Don't generalize my position and assume things from nothing simply because my position on the matter is unlike your own.
I only say shady because the current leader of Iran has expressed wiping the nation of israel from existence while at the same time aggressively pursuing nuclear power in a manner that's heavily covered up in its details to international panels. That's a hard position to not remain a skeptic of. Nowhere did I say the USA or Israel is free of their crimes and behaviour, I only pointed out Iran's. All three states are equally guilty in one way or another in their crimes against humanity however it's disappointing as the people of those nations all tend to be forgiving and accepting of cooperation and multilateralism.

Well they are alot closer to having a WMD than Iraq was and they do not help itself by not letting someone check that they dont. Plus that they are a terrible against its own people and human rights that dont make it better.

But should the US invade? No, they did not do a good job on the last invasions. The UN should do something, a invasion? maybe, if no other solutions can be found.

No. The majority of people in Iran don't want the current theocracy that's in place. The present regime is dangerous and rogue. The people are very progressive and generally very western. To invade would be to backpedal on their progress, and even sanctions would limit their ability to move forward. It's a delicate situation and I don't even have an idea of what to do, other than the CIA stepping in like they did back in the 70's and starting a revolution. At least this time, the revolution would displace the extremist government that's ruining Iran.

Yeah I know, like a I said. Invasion should be the last option, but if nothing else works it comes down to a invasion. But that invasion should not be lead by the US.

But I do hope there is a better solution as invasion are not good for anyone, beside the companies that sells weapons.

Aha, thx for the Info.

You can honestly say "assault Iraq", 'cause it was only a usual assault like always - when someone is trying to robb another out :3


Oh well,

it's not important of the Iran get's WMD or not. This Anti-Iran-Campaign is only a stupid struggle of Power anyway.

But: The "Westmight-Human" is so dump nowadays, you can tell the People every Lie you want and they will believe them.

There is only Thing truly protecting the Iran...

And this is the Fear of the united Nations from even higher Casualties of Soldiers like in Iraq.


Which means. Everyone who dislike the Image of the united Nations controlling the whole Region there like however they want is good advised to "freakin arm" the Iran to the most fullest Alternativ ever!


Sounds stupid, but it is true oO
The People there need as much Equipment as possible what is able to cripple or kill american Soldiers >.<

Ugly, but true. Because this is what the united Nations fear...


By the Way >_> please don't mistake me.

It's not like i am "for" the Iran in some serious Way.

It's just that i am AGAINST Mischief/Injustice.

And assaulting Country's who do not bow to the own Will, reasoned with Lie's in Order to try to rule whatever is going on in their Region...

... is evil. >_>


Honestly. I don't think the People in the Iran will live "better" if everyone let the actual, mighty People in the Country there do whatever they want...


But the western Society i live in, with it's false Democracys is not better.

The corrupt "Swamp" here, who struggles only for Power and is greedy like Hell, is disgusting. ^^

Because War is so ugly, cruel and senseless, it shows something very well...

It show's how:
Arrogant, Haughty, Insolent and Unreasonable our Species is "in Truth".
In two Words: "Infinite Dump".


I can only Hope, that as long as our Species is so unstandable, infinite Dump, we will NEVER be able to reach and colonise other Worlds/Planets.

Because these innocent, untouched Worlds don't deserve to Host something so disgusting as the "Being" that actual, many of us are ;)
