    Oil is a fungible commodity. No oil-exporting nation can choose where its oil ends up. And they decide how much to produce at a given time on economic grounds--not because they like someone's smile. If your remark about "taxpayer dollars and lives" refers to the U.S. incursions into Afghanistan and Iraq, those came in response to the 9/11 attacks. The 1991 Gulf War was a response to the threat Saddam Hussein posed to the supply of oil from the Persian Gulf region, but he did not decide to invade Kuwait because of anything the U.S. had done to irk him.

    1+1=2. Do you get it?
    What I get is that you are one of the many posters on sites like this one who imagine lame cracks are a substitute for facts and reasoning.

    And the koran doesn't have to be law
    Shari'ah is directly based on the Koran and the hadith, the sayings of Mohammed that enlarge on the Koran. It is chock full of condemnation of Jews and calls on the faithful to make war against them. Jihadists like the ones who have ruled Iran for the past thirty-five years take that literally and act on it. Whether the Koran "has to be law" is an absurd question, like asking whether Nazis during the Third Reich "had to" to believe and follow the views Hitler espoused in "Mein Kampf." What matters is that they did believe them and act on them.

    That is why you reach out to the ones that you can reason with, and try to hold back those that you can't.
    Reach out? By bowing low and apologizing for this country, maybe? That is a transparent euphemism for kissing the feet of jihadist mutts. "Try to hold back" does not mean a damned thing when the real goal is appeasement.

    Thats not any kind of answer thats just a dodge

    Israel is not America's responsibility, why do you seem programmed to automatically and unquestioningly think that it is ?

They think we are Santa Claus! :


    And to the north a friend who has never asked for nor received such aid ....

    and Keystone. This guy sure knows how to win friends and influence people.

    Over all the whole 'aid' thing often amounts to no more than vote buying at the UN where every third world vote is for sale, and it makes no sense, sending arms and money to Israel and its enemies too....?

    So how many years after Jeb becomes President will you be blaming Obama, and how would that be different from liberals blaming W for the last 8?

    As long as it takes to pay off the debt Obama has generated, more debt than Reagan, GHW Bush, and GW Bush combined. Why don't you tell us all why you think Obama has done a good job? What economic or foreign policy successes has he generated. Cheney nailed it, Obama is the worst President in our lifetime but because of the American Idol mentality his results are ignored.

    Well there you go. You, the king of the "Bush isn't President anymore" retort, will never stop blaming Obama. Figures.
