Iranians may be able to grab power in a few years and make everything we have fought for since 2003 a things of the past ... a new, Iranian dominated Iraq.

    Waiting patiently for the right time to strike. Just waiting for the US to pull out
    So we should sit there forever then? No. Iran knows damn well that if they go and try to annex Iraq, another 1990 gulf war will occur, and Iran will get its ass kicked.

    You are entitled to your point of view, however wrong it may be.

    So we should forever occupy the middle east? Yes or no answer that.

    If they don't believe he's dead why the threats of revenge?

    I heard a report that some Dumb-ass said they want his body.

    I'm pretty sure that Our Government has the only technology capable of finding and recovering such a target from the bottom of the Ocean if you knew about where he is.

    I don't respond well to orders anymore. Instead of me elaborating, how about you do your homework and quit whining?...but here's a thought for you. I've expressed my opinion in the past that nation building in the ME is a difficult, if not impossible task. The tribal nature of Afghanistan makes it very difficult, worse even than Iraq.

    How do you think Libya is gonna turn out?

    Basically it just gives me more reason that we need to draw out of Iraqi, Afghanistan, screw Libya, and be every vigilant about Pakistan. I just realized something today too...my pants are from Pakistan.
    You can forget that wish list before the next election. Losing wars and leaving before the job is done is something Libs try to get R's to do.

    I'll be curious how the protest machine gets revved up again after Obama gets his ass booted in 2012. Right now they seem to be very quiet. I guess they ran out of paint and they're hoarse voices are in recovery.

    Mind you Cindy Sheehan was back at 'er again. My... what a prophet for the left. Why are the press and leftists so shy about covering and promoting her these days?

    I ordered a specialty box of Arabian Sea Fish Sticks, "Fished from the region Osama has been a keep'in" is their motto. So, a very small part of him will be floating down the sewer in about a week. Just doing my part to bring him to where he should have been "rested" in the 1st place.

    Therein lies the problem. Why throw good money after bad, particularly since we are now in a budget cutting mode. Turning from our imperialistic tendencies would be a good first step in deficit reduction..... short answer: we can't afford to play in the ME anymore (I agree with Ron Paul on this worldview).

    The military is Constitutional, and national security is Job#1.

    Want to cut something... look outside our national security interests... there is a ginormous pig, squealing, farting, belching and puking... trying to hide behind the national security Eagle.

    Here is what the pig looks like, and those spinning numbers won't stop if we cut all our military expenditures.
