    It was probably a little tongue-in-cheek huh?!

    What inaction? We've never wantonly attacked and sunk foreign vessels just because they were near the United States. Ever.

    I got that

    I just like to point out the obvious sometimes.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    You don't start blowing up ships just because they come near your waters. That is a ludicrous approach to foreign policy.

    You know the difference between the two (namely everything) and you know this is a hole you've dug yourself into. You don't have to defend a position just because you made a belligerent offhand comment like 9 pages ago. Let it go.

    the iranians would first have to get out of the persian gulf to get at us.

    and any ship capable of firing nukes would obviously kept under close watch.

    I agree. We Americans are betterer than everyone else, especially all those Moozlims. We need to teach those Communist terrorists a lesson for thinking that they're our equal. We need to take over the whole Middle East (except for Israel of course) so that we can teach all those foreigners to just speak English and quit being such Moozlim Communists. Anyone who disagrees with us is a Moozlim sympathizing Communist who hates America, and they hate freedom too.

    and some times tongue-in-cheek on this forum becomes fact by the Neocons.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    I've been ready to let it go, but I'm not the one incesently screaming, "cold-blooded murder". Surely you saw the parade of hand wringers coming through here crying about it.
