Did you ever see all the container ships that come into this country? A missile or aircraft isn't the only way.

Israel cares vary much. If Obama wins, I think there is a good chance that they will attach before inaugaration day to be sure we got their back.
I was talking with a Democrat friend and I couldn't believe he was completely screw our allies. If we are unwilling to fight and die for our allies, it will ultimately be us against the world, because why the hell would anyone be on our side?

Who are we sending billions and billions to? None to Iran. Seriously, what do you propose? Let's see a picture of your Geo. I would bet a good chunk of change you do not drive a car that gets over 35 mpg. Don't worry, I don't think that makes you a hypocrit.
The real senario that I worry about is a nuclear weapon explodes in an Israeli port city. Some terrorist group we have never heard from claims responsibility. All the experts know the bomb came from Iran, but Russia, China, France, etc., all demand Israeli restrain themselve from nuking Iran to oblivion. The same could happen in NYC, but I think Israel would be the test explosion.
A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of the country. The statesman wished to steer, while the politician was satisfied to drift.
