The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
Bad as life was under the communists, it can be worse under nuclear-armed fanatics, who have already demonstrated their willingness to die -- and their utter barbarism toward those who fall under their power.

I like Dennis Prager for the most part, but the '38 to '15 comparison is inaccurate. We call BS when the left forgets historical facts, and we must call BS when the right does it too. "The Islamic Republic of Iran hates the West and its freedoms." No! The Islamic Republic of Iran hates the West because we've been meddling in their affairs since at least 1958. If we had a decent elected leader, and Iran worked to overthrow said elected leader, and replaced him/her with a tyrannical despot of their choosing, we'd be pissed. Wouldn't we? U.S. foreign policy is so twisted and mangled, and has been for such a long time. We don't know who our friends are, if we even have any.HinMO
Mmmmmm, No.Radical Muslims hate us because we back Israel, and are Christian. They respect only power, which they centralize in a barbaric religion and a "Strong man" mentality, which allows that one religious leader can literally call for and obtain the murder of anyone he chooses just because he says so. This is also true of their (Muslim) political and military leaders.
To Anon at 2:44pm 7/21: While it's true that radical Muslims (or strict adherents to the various sects) hate us b/c we are not their particular sect, it is sheer idiocy to claim that our meddling has *nothing* to do with our foreign policy and the propping up of dictators throughout the ME region to stabilize the area and continue the flow of oil upon which our economy runs. To not understand that, is to deny the fact that behind every unit of GDP is a unit of energy. Apparently you cannot empathize with a people oppressed by an outside force meddling with internal affairs for decades.
Nice bait and switch, except you just described the U.S. Government and ZeroBama who literally murders people by drone strike regardless of status, civilian or militant. My comment doesn't say anything about radical Muslims. You have never been to Iran. Had you been, you might know that the people of Iran are freedom loving and family oriented just like Americans. In spite of the fact that we've unilaterally imposed sanctions so severe they have trouble getting food and necessities, they still welcome American tourists with open arms.HinMO
