#3 BP, he is also planning on fueling the ships and aircraft with pixie dust and unicorn farts.

#4 This would have to happen before November if it would increase Obammer's votes.

#5 If the US gets involved in Iran we should plan to do so without any serious ground forces and without any allies that might cause operation and political problems. Naval assistance and filling in for the US in other areas would be wonderful, we don't need to buy them off to add their planes to the sorties and that sort of thing.

#6 I don't include Israel in that. This is their conflict, they should be involved in whatever level they feel appropriate.

#8 I've always been kinda hawkish on Iran but with Obama in control, I dunno. I might rather wait until after November to see if we can get somebody who is a little more reliable in the White House.

#9 The only reason Barry would do it would if he or Axlerod did the calculus and thought they could come up with a few extra votes to add to the ACORN votes, Mickey Mouse, etc., and the dead voters.

I wouldn't trust him to run a war against Iran. I didn't trust him to run a war in Afghanistan.

#10 How many times have we heard this sort of thing in history. Why sugarcoat such an event. I choose to ignore it.

#11 Maybe we could resurrect a couple of battleships just for fun.

#12 Afghanistan is still hard going after 11 years. Catching lybian Kadaphi took several months rather than "a few days" per Hildabeast and Big Zero. I wouldn't count out the Soviets and china supporting an afghan style warefare.
