    Cotton has stated point blank that force is necessary with Iran.
    This IED is really blowing up in the GOP Senate's face, don't you think--face, your ? .

    You continue to ignore the facts. It's inexplicable.

    Or even better, would you prefer six years ago when we were hemorrhaging 4.4 million jobs in six months. Trashing tax revenues for years to come and raising deficits.
    You do know that Obama has increased the nation debt by about $1 trillion a tyear for each year he has been in office? Do you think this will ever be repaid?

    I'm sure you don't see over 200,000 jobs a month for a year as anything positive, let alone 60 straight months of private sector job growth .
    What did the food stamp president do to create these gains? Did his promise of shovel ready jobs finally kick in? His 'stimulus' plan? What policies led to this financial windfall?

    The rule is that Leftists must always quote reliable sources. You know that, Nimby.

    Maybe so, but my concern is more basic. Our ground forces are appropriate for a maritime power: mobile and lethal, but not designed for a prolonged ground war. Iran is big and populous, too big and too populous for a quick campaign.

    On January 11, 2005, Cotton joined the United States Army and entered Officer Candidate School in March 2005. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army on June 30, 2005. Cotton later attended both the U.S. Army Airborne School and Ranger School.[3]
    As an infantry officer and platoon leader with the 101st Airborne Division, he was deployed to Baghdad as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom on May 19, 2006. In Iraq, Cotton was responsible for a 41 man air assault infantry platoon in the 506th Infantry Regiment,[8] and planned and led daily combat patrols. He completed his first combat tour in Iraq on November 20, 2006, and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal, the Combat Infantryman Badge, the Iraq Campaign Medal, and various campaign/service medals.[3] . . . .
    In 2008, he volunteered to return to combat duty, was promoted to captain on August 1, 2008, and deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on October 15, 2008.
    In Afghanistan, Cotton was assigned to Laghman Province, just north of Tora Bora in eastern Afghanistan. He was assigned duty as the operations officer of a Provincial Reconstruction Team, where he planned and resourced daily counter-insurgencyand reconstruction operations for an 83-member joint and interagency team.[3] He returned from Afghanistan on July 20, 2009. For his second tour in Afghanistan he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal and various campaign/service medals. He was honorably discharged from the U.S. Army on September 26, 2009 at Fort Myer, Virginia.[3]
    Greetings, Jack.

    Impressive record of service to our country! Not knowing too much about him, I read his bio on Wiki, and I was impressed at his record, and the fact that he is the youngest Senator in Congress, having been elected to replace Pryor in the 2014 midterms, a Democrat who had held the seat for 22 years. The voters in Arkansas approved of what they saw in him! I will be watching this newcomer to national politics, and I would like to see more like him in Washington, DC!

    Good evening, Polgara.

    He's off to an impressive start.

    My feeling is that it would rely a great on technology, and nuclear should not be off the table. I cant see them stopping any them way.
