I think YOU missed the point, PapaLugie! Maybe Ackedonmydinnerjacket (thanks biccat...I modified your idea a little) doesn't have the powerful toys he wants us to believe he has. Saddam played the same game, didn't he?Originally Posted by PapaLugie
Whatever the truth is, we have to believe he has the potential to do what he says he can. If we do nothing and he does have nuclear capability, millions of innocent people will die, as the more innocent "infidels" are killed, the more glee an Islamist feels.

A cop doesn't question whether an assailant's gun is real or a toy. If a threat is posed, the cop can check the gun later. If it turns out to have been a water pistol, well there's one less idiot walking the streets and it's his own fault he's dead, isn't it?
