I was reading an article about Iran and their new nuclear fuel rod, and started skimming through the comments. Not only was shocked by all the hateful comments, but by the apparent blindness by some people. There was one comment made from a person claiming to be Iranian, and they were writing how Obama wanted everyone to fear Iran, another was saying that once Ron Paul was elected that he would wipe Isreal off the map. Others (people from the US) were saying that this was all Isreal's fault....and someone foolishly posted that if we would help Iran build a nuclear reactor, that could not produce weapon-grade uranium (or was it plutonium) that then Iran would be happy, and not make nuclear weapons.
I realize that I, at one time, was naive...but some of the comments made me wonder whether there was common sense anymore.
