It's time to cut the rhetoric and undertake what is required - or else the world will be threatened by a nuclear weapons equipped Iranian dictatorship (thanks in part to Moscow).

First to be threatened on Iran's death list to be will be our Coalition forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan, then Israel, then E.U. cities, then ....

"...He said the regime of the President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was at the heart of a "monumental struggle" between the forces of moderation and extremism around the world..."

I think Tony's right, but he left out North Korea.

Looks like Li'l Kim is gonna 'test' another nuke. I guess it'll be his Christmas present to us. NK can't feed or heat their own people, but they'll soon have A-Bombs for sale.

Well, count the mosques in your neighbourhoods, note their locations, then stay well armed and safe....................FRegards

Oh pissy!

Doncha think that a Dial Log is the way to go?I mean , how can we make any progress without pressing the flesh and squeezin the reason?

We should be actively transporting weapons and IED materials to Iranian resistance thru a CIA effort, but alas, too many Clinton appointees in the CIA.

So how will Israel get the job done for us? Well oooops! Another liberal is running Israel.

Maybe the West needs its own purge of liberals. That is what it might come down to.Only war will bring that about.
