    One could argue that both modern day Israel and ISIS are a product of misguided US foreign policy in this region spanning decades

    I wonder how often the reverse has happened because rest assured we will never know

    Allegedly it was a merchant ship.

    I think we would have to work on the checks&balances a little and on legitimization and all. Don't you?

    There's no need for Iran to be an enemy. But toppling their government, arming their enemy with WMD that was used on them, waging economic warfare on them, giving Israel bunker busters to use on them...........I guess you can create yourself quite the enemy. As for Israel, Obama and Carter seem the only two so far willing to hold them at least somewhat accountable.

    I think that like its predecessor, the UN was created to keep the peace, not be used as a place to go to seek permission to wage one gratuitous war after the other. I'm frankly glad to see Russia and China opposing the US on the UNSC in this regard.

    Obviously it's just speculation.

    Do you mean stuff like rubber-stamping the second invasion of Iraq after the fact?

    Re: Iran-flagged ship targets U.S. Navy with laser

    If we look at the larger pictures, it's clear that US enemies don't fear or respect this particular president.

    We have Putin and Russia and their actions in the Ukraine, as well as Russian military aircraft instigating confrontations, reminiscent of the cold war, this time off of the coastal US.

    We have Iran, who is engaged with the US in diplomatic talks on nuclear arms, also taking provocative actions.

    Can you imagine any of these things happening had Regan been president? Bush 2 being president?

    I'm thinking not.

    Obama has in fact put the US in a far weaker international stance the ever before in our country's history. That's hard to argue against.
    Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
    "Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
