Hagel: Israel's nukes more of a threat than Iran

Since Hagel's confirmation, I haven't really had any complaints. I don't know all of Hagel's positions, but this little speech made my jaw drop!

"The US shouldn't even be thinking about the options of bombing Iran or anyone else... We have our hands full right now and we are in such a hell of a mess"

Followed by a mass chorus of "BOOs"? Nope. Thunderous applause... shocking

really daily paulers


only 35 pluses

HMMMMMMM?? is someone already compromised by the zionist lobby ?

hmmmmmmm discuss!

It's really childish and

It's really childish and sophomoric not to acknowledge this. Israel can Nuke the entire Middle East in an hour if they felt their country was in immanent threat of being driven into the Mediterranean. Israel needs to come to the big boy table and admit this.

What the world needs to hear

God, loved hearing that. How many more children have to die by sanctions and bombs for Israel? How long will we let Israel make us do this? The Israel lobby is the most powerful, but how can we continue to do the dirty these lizards order us to do?

I am ashamed of the American people for politicians to have

to lie to tell the truth.

There was a time when people were so liberating that a politician had to lie to tell a lie... and then we gave public interest to private cartels and the people left politics

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Israel has nukes as exposed

Israel has nukes as exposed by the newly confirmed US Defense Secretary? Say it isn't so.


The policies Hagel advocate to use against Iran

are crazy! Dangerous! Is he the next Hitler or perhaps a part of the Muslim Brotherhood? Just like the policies Ron Paul advocate?

-The people who don't get it.

Well, I am dubious about Hagel still, but it's refreshing to see him say something like that.

"Truth is Treason in an Empire that lies" - Ron Paul

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

Meanwhile no ones noticing

Meanwhile no ones noticing all the crazy stuff Hagel's doing to ramp things up in Korea. I guess he can't be perfect :( 


That guy and the audience

They just need regular doses of "news" programming. Then I'm sure they would come around and want to bomb those evil muslims - kill 'em by the tens of thousands with a few billion dollars worth of the most deadly bombs on earth at US tax payer expense. Maybe if we bomb them some more, they will not hate us because we are free.

And Israel a danger? Not poor little Israel and the good leaders of the mossad, they are victims and need our help. We should let the Israeli's get citizenship here and hold positions in the US government.

See what a little "news" programming can do? It can change aggression to defense, rigged elections into democracy, and vilations of our basic rights can be sold as "security"!

When is the last time an American flagged ship

was bombed by the Iranian Air Force? Can Israel claim the same?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

That was surreal.

Did a tinge of common sense just come out of the mouth of a Secretary of State? [pinch leg]

Who? John Kerry?



I know. SOD than. Even more surreal.

Does anybody know

when Hagel said this?

This is very promising.

Nice to see. Hope he's sincere.

Very refreshing reaction from the crowd.
