"Here's a hint, Joe. You don't convince people you're not bluffing by talking about bluffing."

Uh, ok. Unfortunately you sort of missed the point of what Biden said and who he said it to. You are also sort of misrepresenting the situation by pretending all they are doing is talking about bluffing.

"You convince people you're not bluffing by action."

Action just for action sake is silly. Premature action just to prove you are not bluffing is equally silly.

If there is not a dire pressing need to act right away and other, less drastic actions might resolve the situation why act immediately instead of seeing if other options work?

Foe the record, what actions with repect to Iran, are you looking for from this administration?

"And I don't mean writing a letter of disapproval to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Even if you use strong words."

I don't think Obama means that either, so nice strawman. perhaps you might want to try actual arguments.

"What a pair of maroons. Biden and Obama."

I always find it funny when posters misconstrue what other people say and then call the other people morons over their own miscontruction.

I am sure they do not catch the irony in that.
