    How about straight from WaPo, a mainstream source?

    It's worth noting that academic studies, not to mention U.S. government documents released in 2003, had long ago revealed that the U.S. knew that Iraq was deploying chemical weapons against Iran and still provided Saddam Hussein with intelligence assistance.

    Also, you act like blogs don't have any credibility. Guess what? Paul Krugman has a blog on NYT. Does that suddenly make him uncredible? Blogs are a major help. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2009/...out-blogs.html

    EDIT: Foreign Policy is owned by WaPo. It's a legit source of info. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreig...cy#cite_note-2
    Heya Mr I. As long as they are referenced and validate the facts.....then there is no issue. Many journalists and reporters are blogging today. There is no getting around that fact. Even MS Media news reporters.

    I guess that means in the end if Obama decides against taking us to war with a country that has not attacked us, you will be sad.

    What it means, is that if he doesn't carry through with his threats, is that it will cause more American deaths down the road.

    Right now, he's looking weak in the ME and the bad guys will take advantage of that weakness.

    His threats were unwise. Nobody wants Obama to follow through on unwise threats.

    Russia will do what they did during the Cold War, SWEET FA

    Even more unwise to send a clear message to the enemy that he will back down when things get tough.

    Looks like Dick (Tater) Cheney is still in charge of our policies in the ME. Despite the fact democracy in the ME tends to produce Islamic Fundamentalist states strongly opposed to minority rights and opposed to US interests we keep doing the same stupid crap.

    That's a fact and the more he tries to weasel out of his predicament, the more the bad guys are going to exploit the situation.
