    You’re dreaming skunkbear. Secular Iranians are in the minority. Those “sick old men” have a tight grip on Iran and they aren’t going anywhere anymore than the “sick old men” (and women) in our government are. Obama had the opportunity to help the younger secular segments of Iran overthrow Iran’s current regime but he turned his back on them so now there are not near as many of those seculars left as there were before. When those “sick old men” are allowed to complete their nuclear program you’ll soon see why I state they are one of the biggest threats the U.S. has. A large segment of the middle east will be falling all over themselves to be aligned with an Islamic nuclear state of Iran. And the rest will be forced to. When Iran controls middle eastern oil they will use that power to destroy the West by tripling our energy prices. Ten dollars a gallon for gas ( at preset currency rates) and the U.S. falls.

    I’m afraid your assessment of this being a repeat of Vietnam is all too accurate. I will wager that just like in Vietnam, our enemies are being tipped off in advance as to what our bombing targets are going to be so they have time to get their personnel and armaments out of harms way. And all we (the U.S.) are doing is spending billions of dollars to bounce rubble, which a few yeas form now will spend billions more to rebuild.

    Well done Speck!

    If/when Iran successfully tests their first nuclear bomb the power structure of the whole world shifts. Iran will hold the world at bay while it takes control of all Mideastern oil production, sales and transportation. If you think the world’s economy sucks right now just wait until Iran is given a seat at the super-power table. It is nothing short of foolish that the U.S. would be doing anything to aid Iran or eliminate Iran’s enemies and Beck should be sounding that fact out loud and clear! The old Beck would have!

    Now even Beck is starting to sound like Obama on Iran. How they can forget that Iran is NOT our ally is unfathomable. Iran is one of the biggest security threats the U.S. has!

    That’s what I’m concerned about. Pray that these young people do not suffer the same fate as the pro-democracy protestors did in Tiananmen Square! Please watch over them Lord!

    A school teacher I know had a friend she used to work with that twice battled cancer and beat it. soon after she was pronounced cancer-free the second time she was out walking for exercise and a drunk illegal alien from Mexico ran over her and killed her. This sort of thing happens all the time – drunk driving illegal aliens injuring or killing U.S. citizens. The blood of all those they injure and kill is on the hands of every politician, LEO and employer who hasn’t enforced and/or abided by our immigration laws

    Sounds like the wishful thinking of very sexually insecure males to me.

    @jnfomo
    Hey you’re the one who wrote; “If we, as human beings, can’t even agree on the basic principle that it is wrong to behead, mutilate and kill other human beings for the sake of the Muslim cause, then we are no better than those that ignored what the Nazis did.” And when I wrote that we (with the exceptions of Muslims themselves) don’t agree with their atrocities, you now change your agreement to; “That is the point. Most don’t agree, but are saying and doing…NOTHING”. So which is it?…”We can’t even agree on the basic principle that it is wrong to behead, mutilate and kill other human beings for the sake of the Muslim cause”, or “we do agree but are doing nothing”? Which is it? You can’t have it both ways. You’re being as flakey as Glenn is. And if it’s the later then do what? Force is the only thing that’s going to stop Islamic brutality and that is not what Glenn is calling for. From Islam’s perspective there is no compromise – the West should either summit or die. So what Glen is espousing (hugs and teddy bears) only results in more deaths of non-Muslims. Anyone who thinks non-Muslims can find common ground with the non-compromising evil of Islam and remain righteous themselves are delusional.

    @jnfomo
    Even if your interpretation of Glenn’s message is accurate it’s still nonsense. Who in the United States, other than Muslims themselves, thinks the atrocities the Muslims are committing on non-Muslims is okay? Who among us, other than Muslims themselves, doesn’t agree it is wrong to behead, mutilate and kill other human beings for the sake of of the Muslim cause? You’re being ridiculous if you think anyone other than Muslims do!

    @Lloyd Drako
    Yes I worded that badly. Roosevelt may not have officially “agreed” to let Stalin annex half of central Europe but he certainly “allow” him to. The Yalta pact which Roosevelt did agree to, basically was in part a defacto agreement that gave Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania to Stalin. The rest of the territories Stalin kept after the war was in violation of the Yalta Pact. Though many historians find it difficult to accept that Roosevelt ever really believed that Stalin would honor his part of the agreement.

    @UpstateNT_
    I don’t think I read the article wrong so much as Glenn talking in circles has confused some of you. Just because he tossed in a couple of rational sentences into his diatribe doesn’t make it all correct. Glenn Beck IS saying that because America has a low expectation of Islamic cultures that there will be more abuses of gays, women, etc., which is attaching a cause and effect (blame) onto America for the atrocities committed in the name of Islam. And I am saying that America’s “expectations”, good, bad, or indifferent have ZERO bearing on how Islam views or treats gays, women, etc.. Muslims would be doing these exact same thinks even if America ceased to exit. And Glenn’s statement. “How about we try to find the things that we actually agree on? All people of any religion worth its salt believe in this: be the best person you can be… Be the best most charitable, kindest, most humble, most forgiving. Ask for forgiveness, serve other people” is a complete denial of what Islam is about. A good adherent Muslim does none of these things except towards other male Muslims who believe exactly as they do. Islam is evil and there is no amount of denial or “positive expectations” from Glenn Beck, Barrack Obama, Americans or anyone else that is going to change that. The opposite is true. It is the West’s failure to recognize Islam as the enemy of all things not Islamic and for not stopping Islam that will cause more deaths and mutilations of innocent people.

    Melissa who?

  • [1] September 29, 2014 at 3:30pm

    I did read the article. Did you?

  • [6] September 29, 2014 at 3:23pm

    But that isn’t what Glenn is saying. He’s saying it’s our fault for having an honest assessment of Muslims in general. So it seems like Glenn is agreeing more with Obama’s approach to Islamic terrorists. Denial of reality, positive thoughts and big hugs – that’s all that Habib the butcher really needs.

    So now Glenn is blaming the U.S. for the evil that is Islam?
    Message to Stu and Pat: Don’t you think it’s time Glenn has an intervention? Seriously guys, do something!
