Sure, we’d be happy to leave.....after unloading a few metric tons of ordinance......strategically, of course.

Just to lighten the load for the trip home.....

Iran doesn’t own the Gulf and Iran doesn’t choose with whom Bahrain, the UAE, Kuwait, Iraq, Saudi, Oman, abu Dhabi etc choose to have alliances. Nor does Iran dictate how western shipping chooses to protect its commercial interests with those countries

That’s why we started calling it the ARABIAN Gulf for about the past 20 years

Ah the ‘80’s! The good ol’ days. When Qadaffi used to say he “owned” the Gulf of Sidra. I remember President Reagan sending ships for “Freedom of Navigation” exercises. They went pretty well. Libya lost numerous aircraft and a few boats. All we lost were a few missiles and bullets.

I would like to call on the United States Government to remove ALL Iranian students from our colleges and universities. And remove the UN from New York.

Have come to the conclusion, zer0 knows exactly what he is doing. zer0 isn't busy building the U.S. (btw), instead zer0 is busy removing all possibilities for peace, and zer0's grand scheme is to destroy the U.S. and our allies. Think at this point, some of our allies are seeing the truth, and are rethinking strategy. It may be too little too late, though pray it is not.

Yes, by all means, pull up the drawbridge and let the World have at. Oh wait, once the tyrants and run out of wars and countries to dominate, if there's world left, I wonder who they will set their eyes on next? Hmmm...Figi? Ron Paul is an unrealistic isolationist.

That said, our war against al-Queda/Taliban has kept many of those Islamic fruitcakes from creating more atrocities and we've pretty much won it - for now. But those tribal barbarians will never change. It seems to be in their DNA. Iraq is questionable.

So let's pull out of Aftganiscrap and give them a very simple message. Commit one more barbaric act on Western civilization and you are bombed into the stone age you so relish. And yes, I'm talking every man, woman, and child who support said barbarism. Better their woman and children than ours.

I’m with you in the sense that I’d like to see us less overextended in useless, unwinnable, small-potatoes occupations and wars—while we simultaneously carry a bigger stick. If we have to do damage, we do damage—without needlessly sacrificing our men and women.

I agree, but boy is this an unpopular view here. Did you see it years ago when we wanted to stand toe to toe with the the Russians on their boarder over that nutjob in the Caucasus, completely forgetting that the Black Sea is the Russian's pond whenver they want it to be. Talk about strategic over-reach.

I just hope we can unwind committments we cannot afford before our collapsing economy and the world at large unwind them for us.

Have come to a conclusion concerning these wars and believe your conclusion is the only conclusion capable of winning ultimately and securing a form of peace. Also agree, there must be something in the DNA of all arabs which our side will never understand. The bottom line with arabs (imho) is does our nation want to be dominated by arabs or does our nation desire to dominate the arabs and secure peace? There will be attack after attack against the West until arabs are subdued (imho), and therefore I fully agree with you, this will ultimately lead to; Will our nation protect and defend our women and children, or will our nation protect and defend their (arab) women and children. History is about to be made no matter what the decision will be. To do nothing will result in arab domination, so another question; Does the West desire a quick death, a slow death, or does the West desire peace? Securing the peace is never easy, and knowing what form a peace will take is never known unless there is an ultimate winner in war. Then our planet normally comes back to do it all over again a few decades later. So another chapter of history begins.(imho)

I pray you will not consider this a personal attack, for it is not. I fully agree with your assessment.

Vet,
That is the plan I have been talking about for some time,,, with one difference. They do anything, anything,,, they have 24 hours to evacuate their cities, because 24 hours later, they will have no cities, no gas, no electric, no bridges, no airports, no military bases,,,, etc., etc..

Meanwhile here is another politician wanting to pick winners and losers. Putin wants the Presidency, and he also says the US missiles we say are supposed to be a deterent to Iran, are actually a danger to Russia. They have also changed the constitutional term from 4 to 6 years, so we may be stuck with him until 2024. In contrast, NutJob is but a pimple on the posterior of humanity.

Meanwhile, raw uranium has been found near Sabha in Libya. I thought Gaddafi was supposed to have gotten rid of all that. This morning I hear a report that missiles and machine guns have been transported from Libya to the Sudan. I wonder if we already have a secret mission to go destroy them, or if Obama will have the guts to do what Clinton and Reagan did and bomb them. I am also confused by Obamas move to deny statehood to Palistine.

No! No! No!

Most of the Iranian students in the United States are here because they were either opposed to the current regime or members of an oppressed minority such as the Bahá'ís - Bahá'ís in Iran.

They might be opposed to the current regime but it would be very foolish to assume they’re our friends.

Just like the Libyan “rebels”. Pretty much the same crap, different gang.

I suspect it will all start with an Iranian Silkworm attack on our Carrier groups causing us to have to pull back from the gulf.

Nuke cruise missiles can be Nasty and China sold them to Iran. (without warheads of course, they promised. Just like they promised to not sell Silkworms.)

Speaking of DNA, and no one can get on top of me in prefering to knock around all the heads in Asia Minor, (after all, the only thing they respect is over whelming force) but I’m a little less concerned that any of that crowd is actually going to dominate anything. As a group they have yet to master the flush toilet. They really aren’t that good with the wheel and their only real success with fire has been to burn down the only forests they ever had.——just trying to be an optimist.

Another eternally deluded muslim mind. Fought the Iraqis for ten years. Lost a million men. The result? Standstill. Whoopee.

Meantime, we invaded, pushed to Baghdad in, what?, a week, and wrapped up major military combat operations in three weeks. And he's threatening us???

Like I said, eternally deluded muslim minds. What a hoot.

Trying to remain an optimist here also. Primary worry, at this point, is those who are already here in the U.S.A., and those making their way here from both the north and south borders. Down south, anyone, and do mean anyone can be bought. Knowing this sounds less optimistic than I desire to sound; I am trying to remain optimistic, but sometimes it is difficult. Thank you for your post. I enjoyed and smiled at As a group they have yet to master the flush toilet, and pray while they haven't, they aren't mastering something else.

This is a guess (everything I type is a guess). Would think, at this point, the diplomatic diplomacy has reached a fever pitch around the world, and there is only yelling and finger pointing taking place, and nothing is being settled, while all wait for the next shoe to drop or be thrown. Another guess ... the next shoe to drop or be thrown is in the already planned out stages waiting to be implemented. Wishing one could know where that would be. (sigh) ... remember sometimes it is difficult to be optimistic. Looking at late Spring (next year) as a possible point of another major event. This is only a guess.

I’m with y’all on this one.....only with a twist. My contention for years now is that we pull out of these pissant, unwinnable wars and very publicly warn the Muslim world thusly:

One more atrocity against the US or one of our allies, one more act of jihad, etc., and our response will be the following:

We will nuke one of your religious centers, starting with Mecca, totally obliterating it. Medina would be next. Then we’d start on your capitals, beginning with Tehran, followed by Damascus.

You set off a bomb or hijack a plane, we take out a city unblinkingly.

This would not be an idle threat, and it’s undoubtedly one we’d have to make good on at least once. If Russia or China balked at such a threat....screw ‘em. Truth is, I think they’d secretly love it given their own major problems with Islam.

Islamists understand one thing, and one thing only: strength.
