WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush's warnings to Iran and Syria to not interfere in Iraq and the arrest of six Iranians in Iraq by U.S. troops raised eyebrows Thursday on Capitol Hill, where senators warned Bush against widening the nearly four-year-old war.

The Democrats are going to be put in an extremely uncomfortable position when we take out Iran's nuclear facilities -- they condemn a successful military operation that eliminates a nuclear danger from an avowed enemy of the U.S. at their own political peril. But Biden is stupid enough to do it.
Agreed. Biden is plenty stupid.
He's also the unofficial record holder of the longest question ever asked behind the committee room table. (15 minutes).
I truly despise him and all who continue to reelect him.
I do too. I get dry heaves just looking at him and his dripping arrogant evil toothy grin.
Just as during the Vietnam War, some of our politicians are trying to illegally restrict our military forces to stay within certain borders, while the same politicians are facilitating enemy mobility to attack however the enemy wishes to do so.
It appears that some of our politicians are again working for special interests that are supporting the wrong side.

FOX has done it also. Couple years ago the news reader Sally something was covering the WH and kept calling him "Bush". I fired off a note to FOX about the disrespect of the Office. Noticed almost immediately that she began calling him by his title. But there are several who do not use the title unless they are talking about Clinton as if *he* were still the president.
Just one of those things that grate on me.
