Isolating people like him does more harm than good; why did Kim Jong-Il get nuclear weapons in the first place? Because nobody was paying attention to him.

And what was that, keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I think that's a good policy. Ahmadinejad is not the best case scenario for who to run Iran, but he's still their leader whether we like it or not.

Refusing to be diplomatic about things has been one of our greatest mistakes in recent history, and when we do go that route it goes much better than when we don't. Look at what has happened with North Korea.

I couldn't agree more. Refusing to let him into the country would add a H-bomb to the fire. America, like the rest of the western world, is supposed to be a democracy and we can only lead by example.

The U.S has survived visits by the likes of castro and Noriega, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Would you actually consider Cuba (i.e. Castro) a threat to the US?! Unless you're pointing out the lack of threat of Iran in a cynical way. I have always thought the US government's attitude to Cuba absolutely ludicrous having visited the country and seeing first hand how communism doesn't work for more reasons than one.

LOL, Castro hasn't been in this country since 1959. Noriega is a nobody.

This guy wants to wipe Israel off the map and he is killing our troops.

I think killing our troops is enough of a reason to get him out of this country.

The hysteria about Cuba should have ended with the implosion of the Soviet Union, at the very latest.

I could have used Chruschev or Daniel Ortega as examples, too, of "enemies" who entered the U.S. to attend UN functions. While I never considered the Sandinistas a threat to the U.S., the Soviet Union obviously was. Or how about Hugo Chavez and his "sulphur-smelling"?

Yet another reason to boot the UN out of the US and free up some prime commercial real estate. UN headquarters should be in some NEUTRAL country, anyway.

Castro was at the UN, back in the 1980s and don't forget Yasser Arafat, strolling in, with a gun on his hip.

How could I have forgotten Arafat?
