Barack Obama said the following:

It's time to present Iran with a clear choice: if it abandons its nuclear programs, support for terror and threats to Israel, then Iran can rejoin the community of nations; if not, Iran will face deeper isolation and steeper sanctions....

What nuclear programs does he mean? Does he mean nuclear power plants? Does he mean nuclear weapons programs that every nation on Earth has a mundanely legal right to pursue? Iran has the internationally legal right to opt out of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and to make nuclear weapons.

India and Pakistan have them. Many other nations have them, including of course Israel and the U.S. Why is Iran not allowed to have them even though Israel and the U.S. are? It's a double standard based upon arbitrary, insupportable rules made up by the U.S. and Israel.

Show me the law that says Iran can't have nuclear weapons. I'd like to read it. I'd like to see if it's consistent with the highest law of the U.N. (constitutional on a U.N. level, so to speak).

As for support for terror, what does he mean? The U.S. has used unlawful violence and destruction and threats of violence and destruction to make others afraid not to go along with neocon ideology. That's terrorism.

Remember though that Obama said he was offended that his former pastor Jeremiah Wright called that spade a spade. Obama couldn't even speak intelligently on the subject. He couldn't even say and back it up that George W. Bush used illegal tactics in the U.N. in the lead-up to the illegal invasion and illegal occupation of Baghdad.

Bush used spying on U.N. delegates. He used coercion. He used bribes. He used falsified intelligence. He used forged documents that he knew were fake at the time. He forced an end to the weapons inspections that were being conducted openly, honestly, and thoroughly. He used the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans to make a mockery of intelligence. It was obvious to all that he was forcing his policy to drive the intelligence, as the British put it.

Where is Obama on all of that? Where is he on the cover-up of 9/11? Where is he on the missing trillions from the Pentagon?

What "threats to Israel"? The only thing I've heard coming out of Iran toward Israel is the threat to retaliate if Israel attacks Iran, which Israel has been openly discussing doing under the completely illegitimate theory of preventative attack.

Is Obama really going to tell us that he buys all the false-Zionist translations of what the Iranians say?

Obama couldn't even stick up for Jimmy Carter doing the right thing.

Why is everybody so worked up about supporting Obama? He's about one inch to the left of the center-right DLC.

Obama is running for front man for the Empire of the global plutocrats. Why are people for that? The plutocrats aren't good. They're bad for the people.

When will the people wake up and see the light? The current worldly system is fallen and is still falling. If the people don't turn, it will continue falling to its utter ruination.
