    I sitll have found nothing out there to confirm this story. A few repeats of the original, and one claim the axe wound victim was faked(by some guy who claimed to have done forensic work...not reliable from what I saw). Isn't it a bit early to be giving Obama a hard time based on an unconfirmed report?

    I think our whole point in this thread is "if it can be confirmed". I am pretty sure, that Obama knows if this is true or not. We've got to have feet on the ground over there. What I don't know, is where he would stand if it were true, or if he would ever do more than vocalize his discomfort with such actions.

    I really do not see us being in a good position to put boots on the ground over there. Iraq and Afghanistan have our military pretty busy and have logistics pretty tied up. I suspect that by the time we could get enough force there, this will all be long blown over.

    How many troops do you think we would need to "put boots on the ground"?

    Any cop ever called in by neighbors over to a domestic disturbance will tell you never turn your back on the wife getting beaten. She will turn on you quicker than a cobra as soon as you lay hands on the husband.


    Until the united people of Iran CALL us publicly to clear out the mullahs then we should be hands off until then. Coming in to stop the violence is a stop gap solution at best. The US will be painted the bad guy like before. As it is now I suspect the guy with the tanks will prevail.

    Now would be a good time though logistically. Soldiers currently in Iraq for a time could just cross the street.

    biggest mistake we could make would be to go to the middle of the mid-east and try to "clear out the mullahs". I like cowboy movies as well as anyone, but this one would not have a happy ending.

    I meant that we have to have people on the ground over there right now, reporting back whats going on with regards to the riots. Intel and such. Thats what I meant by, "We must have boots on the ground over there" Meaning we already have people over there, keeping Obama aware of the situation.

    The U.S. actually financed Duarte's campaign against Cristiani but Cristiani was in fact democratically elected in free and fair elections.
