Pete Hoekstra and Newsmax chief Washington correspondent Ronald Kessler - with Kessler adding the plot should be answered with a U.S. attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Why not? It’s the only way to make sure America’s fighting forces are all overseas when the TSHTF here.

Yes, we need to distract the American people from the subpoena for Eric Holder and Fast & Furious and all of B.O.’s failings.

The “plot” is all a figment of Eric Holder’s imagination to take attention off of Fast and Furious.

Clinton would lob a few cruise missiles that way, or to baby formula factories, or somethin’...

Just saw on Fox that we have taken care of Iran. Obama started new sanctions. Thank goodness we don’t have to worry about Iran anymore. /s/

Where are the Saudis in all of this? It was their ambassador that was the target.

Send Iran the same STRONG message that Pres. Truman sent Japan at Hiroshima and Nagasaki!

I am now reading Winston Churchill's THE SECOND WORLD WAR. There is simply no way to read this book and not have it conjure parallels to today's confrontation with Iran.

We have had for sometime evidence that Iran is responsible for arming, training, and inserting agents who have killed our soldiers in Iraq. This is an act of war, AND IT HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO GO UNPUNISHED.

If the evidence pans out that Iran played even a small enabling role in this more recent act of war, then we must not dawdle.

The bombing of their nuclear facilities would be appropriate, justified, and effective. The failure to retaliate in a belligerate manner to inflict a degree of pain will simply be an invitation to strike us when they feel the time is right.

Our inactions to al-Qaida's provocations sent an invitation which resulted in 3000 dead on 9-11. When 7th-century minds read weakness, and trust me, they will read sanctions as weakness, they see it as a reason to strke.

I had felt that since Iran saw us take down two countries in exchange for two buildings, that they would take heed and perhaps leave us alone. This uncovered plot indicates we are indeed dealing with maniacs, and we need to act in swift and unapologetic fashion.

Give Holder a one-way ticket to Teheran. He’s already playing for the other side.

Yep. They did the same prior to GW1. We did the heavy lifting, and they sat on the sidelines.

Bomb Iran regardless of who’s in office. Go for it. It’s going to happen sooner or later anyway.
