    FWIW, Charles Martel is using sarcasm to rebut the notion that isolationism would have prevented 9/11, much less is a viable framework for national security and international stability.

    I know, too. I responded with sarcasm in kind.

    Iran threatens U.S. with 'harm and pain'
    VIENNA (AP) — Iran threatened the United States with "harm and pain" Wednesday if the U.S. tries to use the U.N. Security Council — which has the power to impose sanctions — as a lever to punish Tehran for its suspect nuclear program. USATODAY.com - Iran threatens U.S. with 'harm and pain'

    Direct quotes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about Israel.

    "Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury." ....dont we recognize them?

    "Remove Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations."

    "The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map."...I dont care if he's quoting, he still believes it.

    "If the West does not support Israel, this regime will be toppled. As it has lost its raison d' tre, Israel will be annihilated." ....dont we support them?

    "Israel is a tyrannical regime that will one day will be destroyed." ...sooner than later?
    "Israel is a rotten, dried tree that will be annihilated in one storm."

    Re: Iran Test-Fires Its Longest-Range Missile

    A lesson concerning aggressors:

    Once again invading German armies are in Brussels. Once again, as a quarter of a century ago, old men, women and children are blocking the roads of the little country fleeing before the same aggressors. Once again Louvain, Namur, Dinant have been lost to the enemy--the same enemy. Once again the gallant Belgian Army is being pushed back by a relentless foe. All this is because Belgium lies between Germany and her intended victims. Once again Germany has broken her pledged word to Belgium.

    Perhaps it could not have been avoided; perhaps it could. Yet, when the historians pen the pages of the present war, they will have to go back four years to make a complete picture of what now has happened in Belgium. In 1936 King Leopold cut loose from his protective alliance with France and reverted to the old neutrality status of Belgium. It was a status which had failed her once, but he thought it better to try again. Germany had promised him not to attack Belgium in a new war and he trusted Germany again. He knows the sad result now.
    Source: Edwin L. James, "The Fateful Blunder of Young King Leopold," The New York Times, May 19, 1940.

    Three lessons:

    1. Neutrality/isolation is not a viable security framework.
    2. Leaving one's security to the good will of others leaves one vulnerable.
    3. Failure to learn from history can be perilous.

    Re: Iran Test-Fires Its Longest-Range Missile

    iran is making a fool of this president

    he's completely impotent

    what happened to his policy of personal diplomacy, preposterous centerpiece of his campaign?

    why has he STILL failed to react to iranian freedom protests in june and december?

    why did he ok nukes for the nutcases and deniers?

    why can't he get hu and putin on board?

    where are the RESULTS from all the reaching out, bowing and apologizing?

    obama is utterly clueless, his foreign policy might as well be conducted by shirley temple

    on another front, he wrote a personal letter to kim

    My Way News - AP source: Obama writes letter to NKorean leader

    LOL!

    surely, the mentally il will now quickly come round

    he's been touched

    What haven't we done to piss these people off? At some point, some will say enough is enough and strike back.

    It's called blowback and not unexpected. Our problems are the direct result of an interventionist foreign policy.
    You hit that nail right on the head! That is something those you want to bomb everybody into submission keep forgetting. And don't forget wars always lead to more wars and all kinds of problems. Just look at the mess we left in Iraq and the stalemate we are in in Afghanistan.

    I wouldn't trust the Mullahs or that retard they have a president as far as I could throw a house, but it's obvious what they are doing. They know once they have the capability of nukes no one will touch them. They saw what Bush did to Iraq and they want no part of that.

    He's not necessarily blaming America. He could be just pointing out that many of the bad things that have happened to have been due to something we have done in the past and they seem to always come back to bite us in the arse.

    What really irks me is the fine young men and women that have to die because some silver spoon yuppie president decides he needs to play power man.
