    There is really nothing to be gained by either Russia or the US in such an engagement. There are far more pressing issues in the world today that the threat of nuclear war, in my humble opinion.

    Though a Nuclear Winter could certainly take our mind off Global Warming.

    Iranian finger pointing.

    It appears the Iranians want to create some talk of something other than their impeding production of nuclear weapons.

    Never before heard of this Don DeBar. Near as I can find he is best known as a host for some leftist radio station CPRmetro.org, AKA, COMMUNITY PROGRESSIVE RADIO.

    Scrapping deeper into the barrel PressTV pulls up the well known leftist Noam Chomsky.

    The editorial in the official voice of the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, PRESS TV is at best weak.

    It is interesting how the "Left" still wants to make a hero of Russia. Russia has not truly been a communist nation since the early 30s before Jugashvili eliminated most of the old Bolsheviks.
    OF course the Right prefers to demonize the Persians, while sucking the teat of the Arab Oil magnates.

    Of course the truth is, there is nothing here but a pack of feral dogs fighting over the bones of Democracy.

    Funny.

    Never heard anyone demonizing "Persians".

    Well, the Left have their wing-nuts, as well as do the Right.

    And it's all relative. I always thought myself somewhat conservative, but I appear to be pretty far left of center, these days.

    I'd be interested to know the difference in perception between our and the US's definition of "left and right" politically speaking.

    I have noticed that the word "socialism" has a much more negative connotation in the US than it does here and Europe in general.

    Please correct me if Im wrong but my general feeling is that the Republicans seem to be further to the right than our Tories. Now that New Labour have lurched to the right, they are maybe nearer the Democrats than, say, the old Labour party of the 90's.

    My gosh

    All I did was point out that Press tv is an official voice for the Islamic Republic of Iran and its editorial depended on the opinions of two, ,

    You tell me what they are.

    I gave links.
