Were all 57 states polled?

Funny how most hated Bush for even entertaining the idea, yet all of the sudden NOW we are a country of war hawks?

Israel is not going to hit Iran. They've become almost as beholden to the left and political correctness as the rest of western civilization.

They'll sit back and wait for things to spiral out of control just like we usually do.

And I don't say this lightly because I'm a bug supporter of Israel and Israeli causes.

You are correct. Even liberals hope somewhere, somehow, there are adults in charge. But there are no adults in charge, in Israel or in the US.

Take Iran out and at least one half of the problems with Islam will end.

Thanks Fennie. And Ron Paul isn’t one of them — although he does believe they could pull it off, since he believes they pulled off 9/11.
