If a little kid is playing around with matches, one MUST move decisively to take away the matches. If a little kid is trying to stick his finger into an electrical outlet, one MUST move quickly to move the kid away.

Little kids can't understand complex issues, so you don't bother trying to talk to the kid, to discuss with him the negative implications and ramifications of using matches or playing with electricity. There's no time for discussion, so you don't waste precious time trying to coerce them into giving up the matches by threatening to take away TV or their stuffed animals.

You just act... and quickly... and with whatever level of force is necessary to take their 'toys' away from them.

And the Mad Mullahs need to be treated as little kids. For whatever reason, they lack the maturity, ability and willingness to look at things the way we do. We wouldn't be facing this problem in the first place if they were reasonable, civilized people.

Look around the world. How many other countries sponsor terrorism like Iran? How many other countries have leaders who say the things as does Iran? Iran is not part of the international community of civilized countries, they are the exception. And, as such, they need to be dealt with as they are and not as we'd like them to be.

And too many people refuse to acknowledge this reality....
