wow what honest to evil goodness
The video is enjoyable and true pretty much to what happens nowadays. Sadly enough in saying so I mean the islam murderers having the ability to lie versus the people who want it to stop (aka civilians without guns).
so basicly what I believe is that this powerstruggle of maniacs is destroying the land but hopefully it may bocome a better land instead. lets hope and pray that would happen.... so really considdering the situation... I dont think this world will lighten up, but within darkness a light can be seen.
hopefully not the shine of luminescent green radiated men and women. lets rather believe in the coming of the meshiach to create a radiant new wordl :)

The international community will do nothing
Iran will get nuclear weapons, and the world will do nothing. We heard the same bluster when North Korea and Pakistan were on the verge of getting nuclear weapons. Economic sanctions will hurt the Iranian people, but the rulers don't care. If the people protest, the army will called out to kill the protesters. The United States has imposed harsh economic sanctions on Cuba. Has that changed anything after 50 years? I thought that Israel would attack Iran, but when I saw that they lacked the political will to go into Gaza and clean up the mess there once and for all as part of Pillars of Defense, I realized that they would never attack Iran on their own. Does anybody seriously think that Obama will use a military option against Iran? Certainly not after he appointed Hagel as Secretary of Defense. When Iran announced that they captured an American drone, our clown in chief asked Iran to return it. Are you kidding? The Iranians must have been laughing their heads off at that one. You don't fear a man who made such a ridiculious proposal. If I were in charge of Iran, I would feel that I can go full speed ahead towards nuclear weapons. Then one day, a dirty bomb will be detonated in the US using nuclear material from Iran, and everybody will wonder how we permitted such a thing to happen.

Thought it was funny, BUT
Thought it was funny, but sadly don't think there is a "change of heart"happening. I fear them cause when they have more children who can vote my freedoms could be greatly curtailed. Sticky situaton ie how can there be religious freedom when their religion wants to take away our freedom. (my freedom.

That was great!
I love how they touched on the real act of the Arab dictators, and how it was made fun of in a tasteful way.
