    That doesn't seem like the wisest response. This coming from someone who advocates more aggressive action against Iran.

    ohhh Zimmer get real, first we have to get down on our knees and beg forgiveness, and tell they how it's our fault. Then and only then can we do all that other stuff

    Obama is a political pussy.

    He didn't allow this story to be reported when it occurred because it could adversely affect the election (Benghazi, anyone?). He complains to the Iranians and, of course, they ignore his weak ass.

    We have four more years of this Wimp in the White House. Expect more incidents like this...with the same non-results. Sooner or later the Iranians will kill an American...with the same non-results.

    So it goes.

    Perhaps not. But it might serve as a giant deterrent to this sort of nonsense.

    Boy those sanctions work.
    And they were proud. Maddie Albright even said 500,000 dead Iraqi kids "was worth the price"!
    As long as their tankers stayed in the coastal waters of neighbors outside the international space, they were also able to ship it to refineries who washed it through with un-embargoed oil and shipped it out free of US sanction. It is just a political game. Money will find a way to overcome all political obstacles.

    Yes yes you want to kill every one you don't like. We'r very very very well aware of your positions, even voted on them this Tuesday. I'm sure they wouldn't shoot at our drones if someone with "balls" like Romney or Bush was in office. 911 happened when some one with "balls" and no "brain" was in office. Come to think of it, when have our drones not been shot at when they fly over foreign air space.

    This is hilarious. I just spent ten posts arguing with people who are furious at the President because he continues to kill terrorists with drones. And then we have this.

    It's becoming even more obvious that no matter what the President does, the right wing knee jerk opposition will criticize him.

    Yeah, that's what Bin Laden and all of those other dead terrorists were saying, just before they died.

    You don't start a confrontation with Iran unless you are prepared for a serious escalation, and launching a strike inside Iranian territory (as opposed to interdicting a combat air patrol) could lead to a spiral of activity before we are prepared for a general engagement.

    LOL!!

    Yeah, an old man and a bunch of people on the run. Really makes Obama a tough guy, doesn't it?

    Do you REALLY have confidence that Obama will ever stand up to a COUNTRY?
