    Neoconservatism is a legitimate political ideology. Look it up.

    It does, but opinions with no substance doesn't.

    Seriously, why do you give a **** about this boat? Are you scared? Because I'm not. Why should our country have any reaction to something so trivial? We have better things to do. Let pissants respond to pissants. We're America. We can squish them like insects if we want to. We know it, they know it. But we don't squish them, because it's not worth the effort to do so.

Even a navy as rudimentary as Iran's could be refueled and resupplied by any number of the hundreds of ocean going merchant vessels that sail under the Iranian flag.

    But as to working with our allies; it's some of those allies who are the ones chomping at the bit to normalize economic relations with Iran. The Obama administration has not pushed hard enough to prevent that in my opinion.
    Nor should they.

    Didn't you suggest we sink the Iranian navy, effectively murdering their seamen??

    He does have a point about weak leadership and emboldened enemies. I don't think our enemies respect President Obama sorry to say.

Among many examples, the worst are Luis Posada and the late Orlando Bosch, two ex-CIA men given safe haven in this country, despite their involvement in large-scale murders and many other terrorist crimes.

    Not really. Most of the world did it just fine. But under the pressure of stiff US sponsored sanctions and the perennial threat that the US may conduct a pre-emptive attack because of something you've been accused you might do, one might think you to be hard to work with.

    Like I said earlier, I never claimed the US was angels, but because you are NOT privy to governmental secrets, you do not know the reasons why, and neither does your blogger.
