From The Bush’s Fault Files: Obama Expands Militarization Of The Persian Gulf
What a curious approach to diplomacy our President has chosen for Iran. Having promised to meet them with no preconditions back in ’07 as a candidate, President Obama has decided to deploy a “missile shield to protect American allies in the Gulf from attack by Tehran.” How far we’ve come in our journey with Obama’s “on the job training” gig. Too bad he doesn’t care | Read More »
Iran’s Fools Gambit – An Empty Threat?
Ahmadinejad stuck his unkempt visage in front of the cameras to put a time and date to deliver a ‘telling blow’ to the “world powers” on February eleventh.

Israel’s Last Piece To The Puzzle.
RAHM EMANUEL has been running off with his Chicago tough guy mouth again. This time making Israel and the Palestinians quiver with trepidation over his threats on behalf of his boss, Ineptitude the First. I’m sure that a properly chastened Israel will immediately drop all concerns over security and little items like survival and accede to the Anointed One’s command, “Peace now at any cost”. | Read More »

Newspeople and their stories are being shut down, locked up, or worse. The Green Movement is begging for world leaders to stand behind them; but, through it all, they get much of the same. Which is to say, not much of | Read More »

Only Kerry would go to Iran.
(H/T: Hot Air) It’s bad when you have somebody from this administration wincing at a proposed foreign relations move: Sen. John Kerry has suggested becoming the first high-level U.S. emissary to make a public visit to Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution, a move White House officials say they won’t oppose. “…say they won’t oppose.” How… bloodless… a response. And how quick the administration was | Read More »
“There’s only one way to stop Iran” (published in the NY Times!)
A nuclear Iran is the elephant in the room that very few of us seem to be talking about. I discussed this here recently (WAKE UP, MR PRESIDENT!).

Iran is getting nukes. WAKE UP, MR. PRESIDENT!!!!
WAKE UP!! Rush Limbaugh said it all: Do We Have the Will to Bomb Iran? December 18, 2009 (…) So if we don’t pound Iran into submission at some point they are going to get the bomb, they’re bragging about it, they’ve told us, they’ve shunned the inspectors, and they laugh about it all.
