    Re: Iran says warships headed close to us borders

    I think it would be nice if those Iranians were to request permission to dock at one of our ports. I'm sure we'd welcome those cadets...give them a chance to see what a reasonably free country looks like.

    I don't think the Iranian government will risk it, though. They might lose half their crew.

    Never saw that coming.
    I'm not a lefty though. Guess you've been missing my criticisms of the Obama administration. The real sin is found in the cover of wrong doing. I'm less concerned with it today then yesterday. I do agree with many others here that the American public is growing increasingly dissatisfied with it, and clearly the world is responding.

    You're spinning things out of contriol. Get back with me when you want to have an intelligent conversation about the inherent security risk of allowing Iranian naval vessels to patrol our coast.

    are you suggesting that they cannot sail in international waters?

    Why are you advocating inaction that would encourage Iran to park nukes witin striking distance of The United States.

    We bombed Tripoli and we didn't go to war with Libya.

    Not funny Goshin!

    Armed rednecks and armed Iranians won't mix well.

    Here in America as with anywhere, we have in our ranks individuals that are pro-war.
