The Iranians are the best buds of the Latin American left. All the while, Congress is still looking for ways to hang Colombia out to dry.

American leftist politicians regard Latin America as a place to let their Marxist fantasies run free, and Bush unfortunately has done little to stop them (although he has supported Colombia, I will admit).

The Chinese are all over Central and South America as well. China, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba, Panama, Iran along with the help and abetting of Russia are making economic and military pacts that are aimed and encircling and thwarting the United States...and very few are awake to it.

We’re heading for a disaster that will make Pearl Harbor and 9/11 look like a schoolyard scuffle.

Thank God we got those nasty border protecting racists out of the presidential race. (is a sarcasm tag really needed)

Sometimes I just want to say bring it on already-let’s just get it overwith.

Our leaders are hell bent on destroying America.

I have theories, but they are way out there.

I think those military patches tell a rather huge story, if those indeed were found along the TX border. We are in deep trouble here folks.

All the while, Juan McAmnesty wants to give amnesty to the future Mohammed Attas that Iran brings in. Add to that Mr. McAmnesty's insistence that we continue to have open borders.

Do you mean "Grenada"?

It took Ronald Reagan to do that. McCain is no Reagan. He's Hillary with an 'R' by his name.

There is already a large population of Hezbollah expatriates living in the border region of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. This move by Iran into Nicaragua makes perfect sense.

What an appropriate place for Iran to plant its flag. Ahmadinnerjacket feels right at home.

What is this, if you plant your flag somewhere you own it? Russia plants theirs under the Arctic, Iran plants theirs in the Nicuraguan jungle...so do we own the moon?? If I plant a flag with my name on it in Tehran can I have the city??

Time to take care of Mr. Ortega. He needs to go away.
