    Re: BBC: US weighs Iran military option

    the most incompetent "leadership" america has ever endured, continued:

    defense secty gates says we have NO policy for iran

    china and russia NIX sanctions

    obama himself campaigned on some preposterous proposal to meet with the leaders of iran, sans preconditions

    when the bottom fell out of that bankrupt pledge, he set a deadline of january 1, THIS YEAR

    well, it's FOUR MONTHS LATER

    so affable, gaffe-able, laughable joe biden goes on THE VIEW (LOL!) to proclaim to the planet---SANCTIONS BY THE END OF THE MONTH

    Biden: Iran sanctions soon, no Israeli strike likely | Reuters

    LOL!

    the most inept presidency america has ever produced

    even a senator as staunchly progressive as CHUCK SCHUMER can't take it anymore

    Why do we care if Iran gets nukes? We have more nukes. They wouldn't nuke us because we would blow them off the face of the planet.

    This whole thing is silly. Let Israel handle their issues themselves. They have one of the best militaries in the world (which we pay for).

    Did they aid Al-Qaeda's 9/11 attack or any other attacks on Americans in history?

    from the link:

    "Tehran has repeatedly refused to bring to justice, publicly identify or share information about detained senior al-Qaida members who murdered Americans and other in the 1998 East Africa embassy bombings."

    Ambassador Crumpton says Iran provides improvised explosive devices, or I-E-D's, to insurgents in Iraq:

    "Some of the most powerful I-E-D's we're seeing in Iraq today include components that came from Iran."

    Ambassador Crumpton says that Iran "is working directly with some of the Iraqi paramilitary forces militia and they provide support, financial and otherwise." Iran, says Ambassador Crumpton, "presents a particular concern given its. . . .sponsorship of terrorism and its continued development of a nuclear program."

    Certainly truth matters.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Trivial? That is a ridiculous statement.

    Should a coalition of nations have attacked and/or invaded the USA? Just asking.
