    It seems to me that things are escalating, with motivation that came from desperation to win in November...

    Dead democratic voters and paid voters aside, the public tends to stay with an incumbent president in times of military conflicts. If Romney stays close, no war. If Romney surges ahead, watch out....

    If it's 4th QTR and he's down, he will throw the hail-Mary, the bombs.

    Iran had been throwing fits of irrational verbage with action, and this admin. seems to wait for the right time.

    The Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times!"

    I think we are there.

    History says a good war cures a Depression/Recession.

    (sometimes the cure is worse than the disease)


    He seems pretty desperate.

    One thing i am sure of, if they do it once, they won't be able to do it again for a long time.

    One would have to support a war with Iran and Odumma for that to work. I support neither.

    That's assuming that he doesn't have the warships over there to shoot down Israeli planes if they try to take any action.

    I am not so sure about that. If you look at the polls people are pretty tired of sending people off to wars. If there was a strike with US planes it would have to be over fast. As in things are wrapped up within a few weeks. Also the closer to election day the worse it works out for Obama. People will be less likely to vote for him if they aren't sure if it isn't over yet.

    Maybe we can get into another 10-year war?

    It's all about the economy. If there's a war, oil prices will skyrocket and will kill an economy that's already on life support. It's not going to happen at least not till after the election.
    Hasn't this admin been putting pressure on the Israelis to NOT do anything?

    Should have happened thirty some years ago. Never let a festering cancer spread and grow. Especially not one with oil revenue and sick demented leadership.
     
  11. Neo-con foreign policy and the welfare of the M-I-C demand another war. Thanks to our imperialistic foreign policy, there are trip wires everywhere.

    From Romney's website:

    "American military power is vital to the preservation of our own security and peace around the world."

    And the especially concerning:

    "It is America today that patrols the global commons and keeps them safe for trade and commerce."

    Romney is a classic Neo-Con, pre-emptively helping himself to a free-wheeling interventionist foreign policy. This portends a major increase in military spending (hear the MIC champaign corks popping) which means he really isn't going to make much progress toward shrinking the size of government, reducing spending, balancing the budget and reducing the debt. This is what the Tea Party stands for. They didn't support Romney in the primaries and are going to struggle with him now.

    Or,

    You could read his words


    "It is America today that patrols the global commons and keeps them safe for trade and commerce."

    and interpret them to mean he is for international trade and commerce, and might be prone to getting Government off the backs of companies so that they can make profits and bring them home, rather than try to turn America into a cloistered, isolationist nation. He just might realize that passing the same money around in a closed circle is not the way to economically expand our nation and that we need to "import" some wealth and cease being a debtor nation.

    He might realize, in the world of today, in order to have international trade we have to be smart enough to learn the lessons from our past success and keep the "global commons" free and safe so the commerce can proceed unimpeded by rogue nations and piracy of all types.
     
  14. Leaders like to rattle their sabers against foreign countries to distract their citizens from troubles internal to their country. Problem with rattling your saber against middle east countries is there is no telling how the other side will react.

    Obama has already given an indication of what he will probably do between now and November in an attempt to garner more voters. He'll simply tell his various departments to ignore or bypass laws that his base, and those he is trying to swing over, hate. The church/birth control and his recent opinion on immigration were just the opening salvos. The only way Obama wins in November is to keep the Republicans focused on social issues. And the MSM has his back in keeping the Republicans focused on social issues.

    Just a guess........... Iran?
     
  16. If you watched the 60 Minutes piece on our cyber attack against the Iranian nuclear industry, you realize why the administration isn't hyperventilating over Iran developing the bomb. Let's just hope they are never smart enough to return the favor.

    I might be for war against Iran...or against it. It all depends on whether it's a Democrat or a Republican declaring it. Yes, sir.
