    Just another Bush policy being proven right.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    I was speaking to foreign policies, Gitmo, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Patriot Act, missile shields, prisoner rights or lack of them, etc.

    Oh well didn't Obama admit that we need to hold some Git'mo detainees indefinitely without ever charging them?

    Probably has some intel of an Iranian attack on Feb 11.


    state-run Press TV quoted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday as saying that the nation will deliver a harsh blow to "global arrogance" on February 11.

    Press TV offered no details on or explanation of the statement.

    Your personal bank account isn't "funding these little adventures" and has no more stress placed upon it than any other American's. You pay taxes just like everyone else and that collective fund pays for things like national defense and our military. The money is no longer yours; it becomes the State's.

    I remember Reagan negotiating with Russia, and when he was doing it, he was applying the pressure to them. If Obama wants Iran to know that missteps by them will have consequences, I am all for it. As much as I bash Obama, I have to give him kudos here.
