    Refueling coalition fighter jets on combat missions and supplying recon data is not just watching. It is participating on the perimeter. Positioning warships to block access to an Iranian convoy is also participating on the perimeter.

    Unless I'm mistaken, I have heard neither Democrats nor Republicans complaining of such perimeter participation to date.

    Now he's squeezing Iran's ability to arm and supply the rebel forces they are supporting in their proxy war in Yemen.

    Could only help, but really, it seems like it's far too little far too late from Obama.
    Greetings, Erik.

    Poor little Yemen. All the surrounding countries are swimming in oil, but they got the short end of the stick there, and now they have this? Government collapse, people fleeing for their lives - why Yemen? What do they have that someone wants? Or is it the fact that they have a government that closely resembles a democracy, and that's a no-no over there? Life sure isn't fair sometimes!

    Another war?

    Seems to me there's been war there for some time, and your peace prize president has already been involved with air strikes.

    You know the war monger meme is dead right? The hated and reviled George W. Bush, responsible for everything from 911 to bad weather like Katrina had two wars going on and terrorists were contained. Your guy hasn't advanced a ****ing thing in Afghanistan despite what they tell you, allowed terrorism to grow by premature withdrawal from Iraq, and after Hillary's "regime change" in Libya, you now have ISIS strongholds.

    While mr peach prize has been wallowing in bad decisions, like Arab Spring, terrorism has advanced a few hundred per cent.

    But keep spewing the White House propaganda, the election is now on.

    Bottom line if that GWB turned over a fairly stable Middle East to Obama, who promptly ****ed it up.

    It's a global Jihad, stupid. Allowing that poison into the country is only going to increase the damage it inflicts on others.
