Obama’s Incompetence Has Left Israel Gunning for War

Obama’s Incompetence Has Left Israel Gunning for War

“(Obama) is too much Chamberlain and not enough Churchill.”–Chris Matthews, MSNBC.

President Obama has been in office more than a year, yet his administration’s lack of accomplish is startling.

Obamacare is DOA. The total budget is tipping towards $4 trillion per year and the federal deficit will hit a record $1.6 trillion this year.

Yet all this and an unemployment rate of almost 10 percent will not prove to be the President’s biggest blunder. That distinction will likely go to his foreign policy failures whose fruition leaves Israel set to wage war, energy prices and the dollar be damned.

It almost happened once before, almost three decades ago when I was just getting started in this business.

The morning traffic that the growing city of Spokane could muster was bottlenecked on Monroe Street as I headed south towards downtown and my dad’s offices at Myers’ Finance & Energy. It was June and the morning sun was pouring into my old Pontiac whose only climate control was rolling down the windows.

I fussed through the push-buttons on the old radio until I hit the news channel. The headline blared out of the single speaker on the dashboard: “Israeli jets have struck and apparently destroyed Iraq’s nuclear reactor.”

It was the coups de grâce in Saddam Hussein’s nuclear ambitions and the world was fortunate that Israel was able to pull it off—even if the markets were spooked. The attack and the near miss on a broader war helped push bullion prices up more than 20 percent that summer.

It is no secret that Israel is looking to launch a similar strike, this time on Iran’s nuclear processing facility.

But Iran is no Iraq. Besides the fact that Iran will not be caught flat-footed there is the fact that Iran has a far more capable military than what Iraq had 29 years ago.

There is also the fact that Israel won’t have a strategic ally if it executes another attack on a Muslim reactor. Iran cooperated with Israel during its attack on Iraq’s Osirak reactor, providing the Israeli air force with maps and other tactical information.

“There is no guarantee that the Iranian nuclear facilities would be eliminated. Iran could be expected to have learned the lessons exposed by the experiences of both Iraq in 1981 and Syria in 2007, when Israel destroyed their suspected nuclear facilities,” writes the Feb. 3, Sydney Morning Herald. “One would expect Iran to have located many of its nuclear facilities either deep underground or within the mountains to reduce their vulnerability to that type of attack.”

Not only can Iran repulse such an attack on its nuclear facilities but it can threaten the entire region in ways that Saddam Hussein could only dream off.

Iran Captures the High Ground

Last year Iran announced that it had successfully launched its first domestically produced satellite into orbit using an Iranian-built rocket. Tehran proclaimed that “the official presence of the Islamic Republic was registered in space.”

That rocket launch shows that Iran is now able to gather its own satellite intelligence and demonstrates the strides the country has made in rocket technology—the kind of rockets that can be used in a first strike on any of its neighbors.

Furthermore, Iran is working on a second nuclear power plant. It is conceivable that Israel might be successful in knocking out one of the reactors. The other would be left intact and able to develop nuclear weapons after a protracted stand-off. That sets up the possibility for the region’s two super-powers to go, as Slim Pickens said in the movie, Dr. Strangelove: “Toe to toe, nuclear combat.”

America’s Lack of Leadership

So what is the Obama administration doing? It is playing peacemaker and appeaser.

Early in his administration Obama had said he would give the Iranians until the end of 2009 to change their policy on nuclear weapons development. But a year later the Iranians continue with plans to develop a nuclear warhead.

As England did with Hitler, so far America has focused on a diplomatic solution to the “Iran problem.” The Obama administration wants to bring together a coalition that will impose what it calls “crippling economic sanctions” on the Iranians. The most decisive would be stopping Iran’s gasoline imports. But such sanctions are now unlikely as China and Russia have made it clear they will not participate.

Last week Vice President Joe Biden launched a blistering attack on Iran’s hard-line leaders, claiming they were “sowing the seeds of their own destruction.”

Biden’s comments came days after the United States sent more warships to the Gulf and pledged to America’s most important allies to increase its missile defense systems in the region. In other words, the administration is desperately trying to use tough talk and an unproven missile shield to protect the world’s strategic oil supplies in Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
 
In the face of the greatest threat of nuclear war since the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Obama administration is launching angry words while trying to build walls to protect its allies. If it reminds you of Neville Chamberlain, you are not alone.

“If you want to compare Obama in any way, compare him to Neville Chamberlain. He says we’re going to have peace in our time,” commented Rush Limbaugh.

In part the U.S. is playing peacekeeper because it is in no position to begin another conflict. Problems in Iraq are far from over. In fact, civil war may be looming. Kurdish and Iraqi forces are said to be near the brink of a war.

Last week the Pentagon made an announcement underscoring why President Obama is so quick to look for diplomatic solutions. The Pentagon flatly stated that the U.S. is to abandon its doctrine of always being ready to fight two simultaneous-conventional wars.

This message has not been lost on Israel. If the past 60 years of history have demonstrated anything it is that the Jewish state will use its military as a first option.

When Israel successfully executed its attack on Iraq in 1981 it helped push gold prices from $390 to $463 per ounce. A strike now that is less than a resounding success could push bullion prices dramatically higher, perhaps in the $1,500 to $1,700 per ounce range. I firmly believe this because the summer of 1981 gold price spike happened when bullion was in a withering bear market. Today the Midas metal is in the midst of one of its biggest bull markets ever.

Money market funds are currently paying an average return of less than 1 percent. That is the smallest return that money markets have ever paid. Consider the fact that at this rate, it will take more than 500 years to double your money.

I believe we are at the brink of a Middle East war at a time when Washington is proving to be impotent with the economy and foreign relations. Add to it the crippling downward momentum of the dollar and you have what I believe is every reason to get out of cash and into energy investments and gold.

Action to take: Sell-off all fixed return investments (bonds) other than short-term Treasury bills and add to your holdings of physical gold. I like 1-ounce U.S. American Eagle coins as well as 1-oz. Canadian Maple Leaf and South African Krugerrand coins.

Yours for real wealth and good health,

    Israel will be the death of America yet. The Zionists along the Eastern Seaboard has seen that Washington does the bidding of Israel. So what if Israel starts war in the Middle East. Both they and many that really run our goverment put that country’s interests above America’s.

    • Joseph

      Excellent comment. Our government devots way too much time to Israel and what Israel wants . In spite of our large deficit, we still continue to give Israel foreign aid ! For what . They do not need it. They have 200 nuclear weapons . I personally think that we should cut our foreign aid budget and only provide foreign aid to countries that suffer a cataclysmic disaster.

      • James

        Then the price of OIL will sky-rocket if we enter into a military conflict with IRAN. The cost of energy will continually squeeze them because if it costs more to grow food. The unemployment rate is over 12.9%, it’s much higer, because the count of unemployed rate is limited to those people receiving unemployment. It’s an epidemic of unemployment sweeping the U.S.

        Don’t believe everything you read and the main media tells you. They have a casual way of making excuses for Mr. Obama.

        Do we believe “Obama is the front man the globalists will use to usher in the New World Order.”? Judge Obama only by his actions, not what the media tells you. Obama’s action speaks louder than words.

      • Joe H.

        joseph,
        If we don’t defend Israel and keep a democracy friendly to us in the middle east we are totally screwed!!!FACT! That tiny little nation is the only thing that has kept the nukes out of Iraq and Irans hands this long. they couldn’t afford to fight them and get nukes at the same time. You better pay real close attention to Iran in the next few weeks as that remark they made about making a hard strike against the U.S. in the next week might be nothing and then again it could mean something real bad!! Let us pray that it is just a bluff and means nothing!

        • http://www Bill Thomas

          Last time I checked, we weren’t getting much of our oil from Israel. Seems to me, that our vital interests are more aligned with getting necessary energy from the Middle Eastern oil producing countries, and not from a country that has caused more trouble for us than any or our other “allies”. Now I know that there are many bible thumping fanatics that say we have to protect Israel at ‘ALL’ costs, but the fact is, we need to look at our interests from a secular perspective, and with that it’s pretty clear where our vital interests lie.

          • denniso

            The article fails to mention the ‘incompetence of Cheny/Bush who had 8 yrs,not just one like Obama, to ease the tensions in the middle east and accomplished basically nothing. To call Obama incompetent in one year after 8 yrs of true incompetence is ludicrous and transparently partisan.

        • JeffH

          dennisso, why should the article mention Bush/Cheney and 8 years when the author knows you will remind us all for him.

      You are so wrong. The day we withdraw and turn our back on Israel, is the day we are done. We do that, and we will meet our demise real quick, as God’s had will be turned against us real fast.

      • http://donthaveone Beberoni

        That was a type. God’s hand will be turned against us if we turn our backs on Israel.

          Your comment underlines why we need to keep religion out of politics.

            Why, we obviously don’t keep “Lucifer” out, do we?

          • http://Don'thaveone Sally

            Our country was based on Judeo Christian beliefs. We had better get that straight and back into the USA or we are doomed. Why do you think that all of this is happening to us? It is quite simple. And don’t give me that bull about separation of Church and State. Show me where that is printed in the Constitution or Bill of Rights. You can’t because it is not there. Everyone better brush up on their farsi.

          • LocalYokel

            Tell us all Norm. Do you really expect fifty seven Muslin nations to keep religion out of their politics in return?

        • Judy Singleton

          You are so right. God will lift his hand of protection of the US if we turn our backs on Israel. We had better heed his warnings.

        • Trisha Barton

          You are so right. Israel is God’s land. We must protect it. Sorry Norm…some day you will know the truth. Hopefully it won’t be too late.

          • Mike

            I also agree. There is very little happening in today’s national and international news that wasn’t prophetically uttered by God’s prophets thousands of years ago. Even this future war Israel is about to become a part of is prophetic, although I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

            What I don’t agree with is the comment that God will turn his back on the US if we turn ours on Israel. The reason I don’t agree isn’t because it’s not a true statement – which it is a true statement. It’s because we’ve ALREADY started turning our backs on both God and Israel and he’s already STARTED lifting his hand of protection from the US. I mean really… just watch the news and you’ll see.

          • Leo

            Trisha,

            Actually there are good reason do believe that modern Israel, and in particular Jerusalem, IS NOT situated
            in the place of the ancient Israel. If this is true than why would God be in any special way concerned with the fate Israel?

            You can look about it here:

            “The Biblical Temple of Solomon was not destroyed, says Fomenko – it is still known to us as the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople = Old Testament Jerusalem (in the period 14-16 centuries). The biblical Solomon himself is identified as sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1494-1566). The historical Jesus may have been born in 1152 and was crucified around 1185 AD on hill overlooking the Bosphorus.[15] The city that we now know as Jerusalem was known prior to the 17th century as the nondescript Ottoman village of Al-Quds, where biblical “Palestine” is actually the Palatina, along the Rhine, between Basel ,where Erasmus Rotterdamus wrote the “New-Testament” and between his hometown Rotterdam. It is also likely it wasn’t named “Al-Quds” i.e. “the holy”, before Scaliger decided it would have been the “Holy city” of “Jerusalem”.”

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Chronology_%28Fomenko%29

            Unfortunately almost all of about 30 publications by mathematicians A.T. Fomenko and G.V. Nosovsky are in Russian. But I can assure you their work is VERY impressive.

            The authors analyzed what was written in the Bible, starting with the oldest editions, about the geography and climate of ancient Israel and Jerusalem and came to the quite reasonable conclusion that nothing of it could be attributed to the place called modern Israel.

            All their books are very good stuff. It seems almost everything we know about history is a deliberate lie for political reasons which started in 16th century with works of the historian Scaliger!

            Modern historians just keep on perpetuating that lie.

          • Yandle

            Leo,
            It is obvious that you are in the group that believe the lie recorded in 2 Thess. 2:9-12 which states, “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness”. I hope you will see the light.

          • http://Don'thaveone Sally

            Leo you are absolutely all wet. The aya Sophia in Istanbul was a Christian Church under Constatine and now is the “Blue” Mosque as muslims. Where Israel is now is only a part of what God gave to Abraham. Look in your Bible and you will see, I believe it is in Genesis. I’m too tired at the moment or I would give you Chapter and Verse.

          • AnhydrousBob

            If Israel is GOD’s Land, why must WE protect it? Where is the God of the Old testament that says “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD” and one verse later says “The LORD shall fight for you”.

            Where in the Bible does it say we must fight to defend God or his possessions. Does not God set up Kings and tear down Kingdoms? What does God ask of Job, a mere human?

            I think you have appropriated Muslim beliefs who think they must fight for their God.

          • denniso

            Anhydrous…You’re right…how in hell could an all powerful God need puny little people(the U.S.)to fight his wars for him? Nonsense!
            The fundamental problem there is the palestinian people had their land given to Israel because we and the Europeans didn’t want them in our countries. Now,so many Palestinians live in abject poverty and kids growing up in squalor and violence,and if not improved will continue forever. The situation there is also a fundamental cause of terrorism toward us,since we are the major reason that Israel continues to exist…something like 4 billion/yr in U.S. aid to Israel.

          Perfect example of what I was talking about.

        • Viktor Leben

          The term “separation of church and state” means all men (and woman) are created equal. God (Creator) has not endowed more rights to one religious group over another religious group – instead our rights are endowed equally to all individuals. Individual by Individual are endowed equally. If an establishment of religion was preferred over another we would end up with a Divine Right Monarchy – Where the Monarch and the State endorsed church member would have more “rights” than their fellow countrymen.

          America is a Theistic Secular Republic. Probably the first in human history. We accept (in a jurisprudence sense) the existence of a Creator.

          EACH individual are endowed by their Creator (Divine Rights) with inalienable rights …… Their are no Kings or Commoners ! Just Freemen !!!!

          If Israel’s reestablishment was caused by the Creator’s hand, we should support their preservation. Let’s support the Creator !!

          • L, USA

            Israel, like America, is loved by God. Yet, America (whelp), as Austrialia is tied to Great Britian (Lion). We must rebuke Brittian and stand up! Fight! and say No! to the enemies of God, You WILL NOT “take a spoil”! Together, we can prevent them!!! americancongressfortruth

          • L.USA

            The term: ” “separation of church and state” “, is NOWHERE to be found in the U.S. Constitution. It is, in fact the words of Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Church in New England written in a letter expressing his confidence in that there was an effective means of keeping the federal government out of the church, so as not to replicate the church of England, from which the pilgrams did flee to the New World (America). You are correct though in your declaration for the United States of America to continue full and unilatteral support of Israel.

        • Norm

          Maxine Albritton
          You assume there is a hell. In fact, you base your life on faith not fact. If your faith, one of many, is wrong I guess you lose.
          My point is simply that if we base politics on religious doctrine, then we are no better than the Islamic countries in the middle east and elswhere. The Japanese in WW2 were very religious. One man’s heaven is another man’s hell. The founding fathers knew this.
          Incidently I don’t think that the Jewish faith believes in hell. Anyone?
          The Christian concept of hell was invented by Dante, an Italian poet/politician, who lived in the 1400′s (I believe).

          • http://Don'thaveone Sally

            I will pray for you Norm and all like you as you do not know the Truth. Since you have no clue what the Bible says, start by reading the Left Behind Series, there are 12 books in the complete set, they are fictious however are based mainly on the Book of Revelation, and after reading you are not convinced of what is happening and going to happen, God help you because you will need it.

          • OEF Vet

            Norm,
            You’re dead wrong, Hell was not the invention of Dante, stop watching TV and try reading the Bible. Jesus warned about Hell and clearly stated all will go to Hell unless one has Him as their savior, so clearly it wasn’t the thought up by Dante. Furthermore, Dante’s works of the Inferno and Divine Comedy were built upon the ideas, beliefs of the time,and upo the root of the Bible, not a newly never-before imaginative creation.

            Right on.Israel is a outlaw regime and not entitled any help from us.The Ukraine ask Israel to hand these communist monsters over for trial.Isreal refuse. They fled from the Soviet Union when it collapsed.They were responsible for the murder of thirty to forty million people in the Ukraine and Russia,the Nazi war criminals are a different matter. Right?What if these other countries did that? Are communist butchers any better than Nazi war criminals? You religious morons think Communist Russia was a big threat,look at Zionist Israel.We will have another enemy,this time our luck may run out.There are lot of good non Zionist Jews who don’t support Israel.Here some of the Zionst Jews you people love.I can’t name all of them.Look it up on the internet

            1:Karl Marx
            2:Theodor Herzl( founder of modern Zionism)
            3:V.Lenin

            When we both die and find out there is none then we both lose, we become dirt. BUT if there is a hell and I choose to believe in Jesus then I win and you still lose.

            What do we lose if we believe in hell and then upon death ‘find out it doesn’t exist’? That assumes an afterlife in the first place,which is a pretty big assumption,based on essentially ‘faith’. We do lose when we tie our political and personal beliefs too tightly to religion if it blinds us to reality,just as we condemn the Muslim suicide idiots for blowing innocents to bits when they ‘believe’ at least as strongly in their religious reasons for their actions.
            The founders were truely wise about the establishment of religion in the role of gov’t.

      You are definatly not politically correct, but you are dead on.
      Israel is the “little saten” and America is the “big saten” according the Islamic extremeists. If we did not support Israel there would never have been a “9/11″. Radical Islamics from all over the middle east, even friendly countries, are hell bent on destroying Israel. The US is their only obstacle. For this we are hated and attacked.

      • http://victorbarney@embarqmail.com Victor L Barney

        Although America actually is the biblical Israel and not Judah, you are not far from wrong, but do not think that Israel’s biblical half-brother Islam is not out to destroy both Israel and Judah! Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? PS: The only “global warming” that we’ll ever see in our life time , if any, will be from Nuclear War (just a logical unrelated addition)!

            Norm,
            You do not believe in truth nor are you associated with the Truth as can seen by looking at your comments. Your comments reveal that you are without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world therefore you are dead in your sins and unless you repent and trust Christ, you will hear Him say, “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels”

            I congratulate you on your strong and aparently very well defined beliefs. Unfortunatly you seem to think that God is a pretty sinister character. I feel God is good and forgiving and so I don’t fear eternal damnation. You see I’m not a sinner and have few regrets.

            Norm, I say this with kindness and because I care: God’s own challenge is, “See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no god with Me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; neither is there any that can deliver out of My hand. For I lift up My hand to heaven, and say, I live forever, If I whet My glittering sword, and Mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to Mine enemies, and will reward them that hate Me” (Deuteronomy 32:39- 41). A study of the concordance will show that there are more references in Scripture to the anger, fury, and wrath of God, than there are to His love and tenderness. Because God is holy, He hates all sin. God has often forgiven sinners, but He never forgives sin because it paid for by his blood; and the sinner is only forgiven on the ground of Another having borne his punishment; for “without shedding of blood is no remission” (Hebrews 9:22). Christ died for our sins. We are told, “The Lord will, take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserveth Wrath for His enemies” (Nahum 1:2). For one sin God banished our first parents from Eden. For one sin all the posterity of Ham fell under a curse which remains over them to this day (Genesis 9:21). For one sin Moses was excluded from Canaan, Elisha’s servant smitten with leprosy, Ananias and Sapphira cut off out of the land of the living. God’s Word says, “Thou hatest all workers of iniquity “(Psalm 5:5). And again, “God is angry with the wicked every day” (Psalm 7:11). But men refuse to believe in this God, and gnash their teeth when His hatred of sin is faithfully pressed upon their attention. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven” (Romans 1:18). It was revealed when the sentence of death was first pronounced, the earth cursed, and man driven out of the earthly paradise; and afterwards by such examples of punishment as those of the Deluge and the destruction of the Cities of the Plain by fire from heaven; but especially by the reign of death throughout the world. The whole creation has become subject to vanity, and groaneth and travaileth together in pain. The same creation which declares that there is a God, and publishes His glory, also proclaims that He is the Enemy of sin and the Avenger of the crimes of men . . . But above all, the wrath of God was revealed from heaven when the Son of God came down to manifest the Divine character, and when that wrath was displayed in His sufferings and death, in a manner more awful than by all the tokens God had before given of His displeasure against sin. Paul tells us, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Rom 3:23 and “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” Rom 5:12. John said “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” 1 John 1:8 The forerunner of Christ warned his hearers to “flee from the wrath to come” (Matthew 3:7). The Savior bade His auditors “Fear Him, which after He hath killed, hath power to cast into Hell; yea, I say unto you. Fear Him” (Luke 12:5). The apostle Paul said, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” (2 Corinthians 5:11). The greatest thing I can say is, “BUT GOD commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us”. Rom 5:8

            You probably lost what little faith you had when you found out in your teens that what you wanted to do was against God’s commands. That’s what usually happens when people try to justify their wrongdoings. There will be a day of judgment when we die, count on it.

            Claire,
            If you believe your bible, and I think you do, then it says all have sinned and it also says to breath is to sin. Therefore Norm is incorrect in his assumption that he has not sinned. Jesus was the only human to have walked this earth that never sinned!

          • Claire

            JoeH–my reply was to Norm. I cannot believe he thinks he is not a sinner and has no regrets. I have had a couple of regrets but I have dealt with them, and I know I have been forgiven. We all are sinners. And yes, Jesus is our Savior.

          • Claire

            Whoops! Norm said he had few regrets, and I stated he said had none. I own up to my mistake. Sorry, Norm.

      • Joseph

        Mary, your last few sentences are in agreement with my comment.
        We need to stop all foreign aid (especially Israel since it gets the most) and bring our troops back home and put them on our southern border. We do not need any more immigration , period ! 300 million people are enough. Our country is getting crowded and we need to protect our environment and our living space. When I was in college in the early 1980s we had 200 million people . Things were fine back then so why would we let another 100 million people into our country most of whom are low and semi skilled to compete with our people for jobs. We already had and continue to have plenty of low and medium skilled workers who are unemployed especially in the black and hispanic communities .

          Sally,
          You are absolutely correct, Muslims(true believing Muslims) hate everyone who is not Muslim and it IS the DUTY of Jihad for EVERY Muslim. Conversion by the sword is authorized in the Koran and is the proper course to spread their wicked beliefs. Islam or submission to Allah is to be forced not recommended or suggested. While deployed, I saw several Muslims who appeared to have the basic beliefs of average American(treating others as they want to be treated, showing basic respect), but there is no doubt, forced submission to Islam is the law of the land. I saw crushing poverty, which can only be explained by backward 7th-century based thinking. However, I also saw those areas which disregarded the nonsense of Islam and were quickly growing and becoming an economic regional power.

          Yea I saw a speech on another post where Hussein Obama admitted that he was a Muslim. If anyone wants to see it go to http://www.youtube.com and then go up to where it says SEARCH, and type in Is Obama a Muslim. another guy listed it on another post Iforget were.

        Norm . . . the cult of izzzzlam has been having 9/11′s since the 8th century . . . have you ever read a history book? Preferably published before the 1970′s.
        The return of Israel was foretold by Daniel, preachers spoke about it for centuries and in 1948 it happened. They have withstood many attempts to destroy them by insurmountable odds, yet they have prevailed. The final assault will come when muzzzzzlim europe, their neighbors and the kings of the east and north attack. Going to be interesting.

        Norm,
        Wow, the amount of illogical answers from you really has made me realize the 2010 election will be a landslide for Tea Party-based Republicans and Democrats. You really think our support of Israel caused 9/11? Or maybe it was an inside job, right?!? I love trying to give logical thought to people like you. I truly know it’s pointless, but like a Christian trying to show a sinner their sins or an American solider trying to keep his country free, the other party must at least try a little to make it a success. Muslims (True believing Muslims or Radical Muslims as the politically correct term you would know them by) hate anyone not under the rule of Islam. Spreading and destroying the enemies of Islam is authorized by the Koran. Rape, slavery, murder, torture, dismembering, genocide, and many other wicked and evil tactics are the rules of the game for true believing Muslims. Don’t believe me, find out for yourself if you can manage to stop watch MTV for five minutes and do a little reading at http://www.jihadwatch.org/

          oef vet
          You don’t have a logical thought in your head.
          If you don’t believe that the single goal of all radical Islamic arabs is the destruction of Israel and the return of Palestine to Islamic rule, you are an idiot. Read the newspapers, listen/watch the news(even Fox). That single Islamic goal caused all of the wars against Israel since 1948. Most of the middle eastern countries openly refuse to recognize the existance of Israel.
          Israel would not exist if it wasn’t for the United States. We give them money, the latest arms, and our full support. They would not have nukes, if not for the US.
          The only possible way for the arabs to defeat Israel is to remove the US from the equation. Militarily, that’s impossible. But by acts of terror they hope to discourage the US from supporting Israel.

          • Orion

            Sadly, I see less tolerance and more vehemence from professing Christians than from any other religion except Islam. Could it be because they are so closely related? :-)
            Here I thought (and was taught, at least VERBALLY; “God is Love”…
            Wow, what a twisted faith tis created when men decide what God’s will be for others!
            Makes me very happy that I value my independence and “Forestwalker” leanings… You know, “All the religions have a sacred Tree, and I walk in the shade of the Forest”.
            Why not live and let live; deciding only what God’s will is for yourself ALONE! My pray is that we get back to the hope at hand and attempt to get our once great nation back more in touch with the Constitution that made it so.

          “Or maybe it was an inside job, right?!?”

          I am a civil engineer and my military speciality was to blow things apart with the high explosives.
          I assure you what we saw 9/11 with THREE buildings falling down, one of which WAS NOT even hit with a plane was a real miracle.
          In the whole history of the world NEVER a modern building, of the tower type with a steel carcass, fall because of any kind of fire.
          So, technically speaking, we all were very lucky to witness THREE miracles of biblical proportions within a few hours. I doubt this will ever repeat itself.

          Think about it!

          Or may be it was not a miracle?

          Do you still feel yourself lucky?

          I don’t.Rather screwed!

          • james

            ah leo, tell me since you are a mil spec’d demo expert and a civil engineer you have surely wittnessed many sky scrapers that were struck by fully fueled jumbo jets at the three quarter point of elevation. I bet just for grins the military even had a third building located at the exact distance and orientation of the ones in question, by the way i hope you don’t believe rosie’s take on fire not being able to smelt i meen melt steel. you are however very correct in your concern to be very afraid we are all being sold out

          • Leo

            james,

            I am glad that you believe you had witnessed a miracle. Actually a triple one!

            No, it is not possible to melt a steel with a burning fuel. There is not enough temperature. And oxygen too.

        • Joe H.

          Leo,
          you say you are an engineer yet you have obviously never heard of forge welding??? steel can be Weakened to the point of collaps by JP4 jet fuel. It is a type of kerosene and burns at a higher temp than gasoline and burns longer also!!! now when you add the stress of the aircraft hitting the building and also the FACT that aircraft frames are made of a mixture of aluminum and MAGNESIUM and yes the steel could melt. check your sources and find out what temp magnesium burns at!!! I wasglued to the TV that morning and I saw the towers hit and they WERE HIT!!!

          • L, USA

            I also, was watching television in my office and saw it all on Live broadcast. First thing I did was call family to alert them to what was happening. I saw it all coming to and believe me, I did what I could to warn the leaders before it did! Take that to the bank.

      • Eartlw

        I sit here reading this back and forth and am marveling at the lack of KNOWLEDGE I see. In the first place, The vast majority of the occupants of the state of Israel ARE Zionist, and followers of the TALMUD, which is the supposed word of g-d but actually is a work of about 60 books written by Rabbis down through the ages (like a law book). In it are some of the foulest of “rules” one could conceive of such as “if a Jew has sex with a child, it is permitted, but if a goy has sex with a Jew child he must die”. There are numerous examples of this kind of hypocrisy in the Talmud.( Soncino edition )

        Let’s move on from here to the origins of the Ashkenazim Jews which make up most of the population. They are descendants of the Khazars which originate in eastern Europe and Georgia. They are not ” the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” genetically, and therefore not Jews. AS the last commenter said, look up Theodor Herzl and a bunch of others like Vladimir Jabotinsky. Read and learn…
        People who follow the left behind series and all the other fictionalists ought to wake up and smell the coffee. If you want to believe that the present-day Israel is that which was given to “Jews” by G-d, you’re welcome to your fantasy, but it’ll do you no good. If you think this is some kind of anti-Semitic diatribe, your sadly mistaken…..For example, Arabs also are a Semitic people. Take this and educate yourself further…….Try googling “Khazaria”

          Jesus castigated all those who followed those “laws”. They were so under them, they wouldn’t even go to the bathroom on the Sabbath. He changed the thinking on following GOD’s laws. That’s why Christians are New Testament people.

        • coal miner

          Eartl,

          You are absolutely right.Majority of the Jews are Khazarian.According to Rabbi Elmer Wise,he stated there is no historical evidence Isreal ever belong to the Jews and therefore Jews have no righful claim to the home land.There was a Jew not too long ago said most Jewish ancestry is trace to southern Russia and the their claim to Isreal also is bogus.I forgot the man’s name,but you can check it out.He has come under a lot of death threats,not from gentiles,but from his own government.Chow!

      It seems you fail to recognize what this tiny nation has done for our country and the world. You have forgotten all the times Israel has helped the US by doing the dirty work. Just like the UN you are quick to blame Israel, take a look around and see who the real trouble makers are. In her short 52 year history, Israel has produced more world renouned, Nobel prize winners, doctors, physicists and engineers. She has contributed more to advancements in every aspect of life than any other middle-eastern nation. So next time technology saves your life you can bet it was developed or made in Israel

    • Neil

      Israel has never asked the U.S. for assistance in fighting its wars. Almost all of its foreign aid, from the U.S., is spent in the U.S., by a long-term agreement. The billions of dollars that go to other countries throughout the world, who are the recipients of our foreign aid, have no such agreement. Even countries like Germany, South Korea, Japan, the Phillipines, etc., where we spend billions keeping our troops on duty, there’s no such agreement that they purchase anything from us. Back to Iran, when a country, such as Iran, states that they will destroy another country (Israel) and are willing to “sacrifice” half its own population to do so, Israel reacted by asking G.W.B. for the flight codes that would be necessary to overfly American held areas in Iraq, so that they could destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. G.W.B. said no, as has B.O. However, Israel never asked the U.S. for military assistance in carrying out such a mission. By the way, if you spend some time reading various online news sources, nearby Arab states, including our main source of oil (Saudi Arabia) have given Israel tacit permission to take care of their dangerous neighbor, Iran.

  • Andy in Idaho

    This column by Myers is pure anti-semitism; nothing more. We are damn lucky to have a alliance with a nation like Israel that shares our Western values and embraces freedom and democracy. Nobody else in that part of the world provides for America’s interests the way that great Jesish State does.

    • Harold Olsen

      I agree that the United States is lucky to have an alliance and a friend with a nation like Israel. Unfortunately, Israel can’t say the same thing. Under the current regime, the United States is not an ally of Israel. Obama is an anti-Semite and anti-Israel. Israel knows that they can no longer depend on the U. S. for help. They are on their own and if they have nuclear weapons,which I believe they do, they will use them if necessary and rightfully so. They don’t worry about what other countries think of them the way our country does. The defense of their country is more important to them than other peoples’ opinions. It’s too bad we can’t say the same thing about our government. The Obama regime doesn’t give a damn about the safety or defense of our country, nor does anyone else on the left. As far as they are concerned, WE are the bad guys.

      • Tim

        Obama doesn’t have a regime; he has a presidency. Get that straight! Obama is NOT an anti-Semite. He is only anti-obstructionist (Republicans being the obstructionists). Just because Obama has reached out to other Arab nations since taking office, doesn’t mean he is against Israel. If Obama didn’t care about the security of our country, he wouldn’t have sent 30,000 additional troops to afghanistan (something I am opposed to, as are even some conservatives, like George Will and Pat Buchanan) or taken out many AlQueda operatives in the Middle East. He is certainly tougher on terrorism than Bush ever was, and didn’t even have to resort to torture. Fighting terrorism isn’t a leftwing or rightwing things; it is an American thing.

            California 70 – about the covering of statues – I almost think from some articles I was reading that were kind of evasive – that the students themselves covered the statues as kind of a protest so the “statues” would not have to view the President.

          Tougher on terrorists than Bush? Wow. You’re in a fairly small group to think that. Maybe to far left folks Obama seems tougher on terror because they don’t like what he is doing in Afghanistan.

You are one of millions of scared naive little Socialist upstarts who believe the government is your saving grace. I bet you are on welfare too. I bet you dont give a damned that Obama is not even a Legitimate American citizen. I guess it was totally O.K. with you that him and his pro Communist handlers spent well over a million dollars of taxpayer monies to hide his true identity. All proven facts by the way. I also bet you never served your country in the form of the uniformed services.
          If you took time to watch the news, The Republicans are totally against the Obama garbage that he and his administration and fellow Dems are trying to systematically shovel. Reason the Republicans are against it is because they know there jobs are over if they vote in with the rest of those tyrants in Washington.
          If you think that torture isnt used now, you are wrong. it is used on both sides and it will continue to be used.It just isnt called torture anymore. As for the surge in Afghanistan, that was political. He had to do that or look like what he really is.. weak. I feel sorry for anyone in uniform who has to take orders from a Democratic President. But it is insulting even worse that he is not an American. He is a Pro Marxist. His job is to end America as we all knew it. That is your change Tim. As for obstructionists as you call the Republicans. They have idiots in sheeps clothing on their side too. We will vote those tyrants out also. Anyone that can obstruct the Obama agenda will be a patriot.Anyone who is pro Marxist,socialist or New World Order or what ever they want to call it should leave this country now. Join us or remain with them, but get your facts straight. Obama is a regime with a destructive cause and Americans know it.Join us or remain with the likes of Obama and drudgery, but get your facts straight.

Evidently you have no clue or belief in the things of God and of course you can’t being un-enlightened by the true spirit and this has nothing to do with politics but right and wrong.
          We , as spoiled Americans think that we can just avoid everything in the world,just take care of ourselves and no one will bother us, remember 911!
          I will promise you that if we abandon Isreal, God will abondon us and another thing, if the whole world goes up against Isreal, they will win. Read the Bible and discover the truth and if you do not believe this , then go back to the first sentence of this note.

          Tim dear, Obama is a self-admitted “Progressive”. Do you know what a Progressive is? It is a code word for Communist. The Communists in the 1930′s fell out of favor in the USA and so changed their name to Progressives. Then when that fell out of favor in the 1950′s they changed their name to Liberals. Now that the word Liberal is beginning to fall out of favor (or as might otherwise be commonly referred to as subversive), they have now started calling themselves “Progressives” again.

          Just a little history lesson for you Tim. Wise-up.

Hes been purposely excluding the Republicans, with his back room deals with his congress, the whole time hes been in office. This was his whole plan. Second, he apologized to the Arab nations for everything America is, and told Israel point blank that he wasn’t helping them and to move out so the palestinians could take over Jerusalem. Obama sent 30,000 troops under pressure, so he wouldn’t look bad, which is a broken campaign promise he made. He doesnt care about the security of this country, only what the rest of the world thinks of him. Last but not least, BO is weak and way inexperienced on Terrorism. At least Bush didn’t give the captured Terrorists Miranda rights like BO has!

      • Joseph

        “Obama is an anti-semite” what nonsense. Rahm Emanual and David Axelrod are his two top political advisers . Both are ardent zionist Jews . Israel twice in its history has committed despicable acts of treachery against our country : the 1956 Lavon Affair and the deliberate attack on our intelligence ship the USS Liberty in 1967.

          Emmanuel a Zionist? Have you ever heard the filth that pours out of this mans mouth? I believe you are gravely mistaken. He happens to have Jewish blood in him, but he is a westernized foul mouthed man of the world, and knows nothing of God or Jesus Christ.

            Jews don’t believe in Jesus Christ! I lot of very good and loyal Americans also have varying views of Christ and the bible.

          • OEF Vet

            Norm,
            Once again you’re wrong, ever hear of Messianic Jews? Come on, again…read the Bible, the first believers were ALL Jews. Most of the Christians in Israel are ethnically and genetically from the Jewish family, and identify themselves as such. Please stop watching TV and use your brain, try reading a book once in a while, I suggest you start with The Bible.

          • Norm

            oefvet

            No Jew on earth worships either Jesus or any other dead human being – period. Judaism forbids worship of our fellow men.

            The Christian Evangelists that are here posing as “messianic jews” are precisely that: Christians. Nothing to do with Judaism. They have never been Jewish at any point in time – and they sure as hell aren’t practising any form of Judaism now.

            These Messianics are condemned publicly by 99% of Christians and 100% of Jews. In fact, as far back as 1997, there were meetings of Jews, Muslims and Christians to discuss and then issue warnings about these Messianics who go round lying and claiming that ‘yeah, real jews worship christ’:

            In the summer of 1997 in Washington D.C. (USA), there was held an Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington. Partaking in the conference were representatives of various Protestant churches, Roman-Catholics, together with Moslems and representatives of Jewish organizations. The Conference concluded with an official statement (published in “Interfaith Connector” Vol. 8, No. 2) which stated:

            “We condemn proselytizing efforts which delegitimize the faith tradition of the person whose conversion is being sought. Such tactics go beyond the bounds of appropriate and ethically based religious outreach.

            “Examples of such practices are those common among groups that have adopted the label of “hebrew Christianity”, “Messianic judaism”, or “‘jews for Jesus”.

          • Joe H.

            Norm,
            The question was not whether they were loyal Americans, It was whether they believed in god or Jesus. the statement that Jews didn’t believe in Jesus was not entirely true, it depends on whether you are talking orthodox jew or not. also I noticed you typical libbies overlooked the partabout GOD and ALL Jews believe in God!!!

        • George

          Right on Joseph! But don’t look for any reminders of that from any of the media. Why?. Just check who owns the media. When, long ago the Jews were thrown out of many countries many times, they did not own the media so could not give themselves cover to change the story. Now they do.

  • Uncle B

    Get into the Gold Bubble?

    • DaveH

      It is no Bubble, Uncle. The value of Gold isn’t going up, rather the value of the dollar is going down, so it takes more dollars now to buy that gold, as with other hard assets. You can play the fiddle for the next several years or you can put it down and protect your cash savings. It’s your choice.

      • Ken

        GOLD? Now if you think that gold is going so much higher, then why is it that all of the gold dealers are spending millions on commercials to sell you their gold for those useless devalued dollars that you have. Now , no smart business man will sell you something of value for worthless dollars.

        • OEF Vet

          Ken,
          You’re right on. Let’s think about this: If you knew for a fact the dollar will continue to collapse, then why in the world would you want to hold on to the dollar when you could carry a valued medium of exchange to transfer your wealth to any other currency in the world upon demand? That’s exactly what gold offers. It is universally accepted for exchange(or currency transfer) in any nation in the world and has the ability to retain it’s value, because it in a physical product not a promise of product such as the dollar is. In economic terms, it’s called inherit value, that is a product which always has value and doesn’t need to be haggled or commercially advertised. I have always recommended to others to buy gold, and if you can’t afford gold, then buy silver, as silver’s value is directly related to gold’s.

        • DaveH

          Don’t count on ever getting anywhere in life with that attitude Ken. That’s why so many people aren’t successful. We defeat ourselves with the idea that “If it’s so good, somebody else would have surely done it before now”, and “If it’s such a good deal why would they offer to sell it to me?”. There are always those on the other side of the fence who think an investment is going to go in the opposite direction.
          Besides hard work, educated risks are another pathway to success. In this case, it is a no-brainer, because the Government is flooding our economy with excess money, and I don’t see it stopping soon. In fact, it is going to take a very strong bunch of politicians to wean the public from the trough. I’m not too hopeful for that eventuality.
          Most likely we are going to have some nasty inflation when those dollars start coming off the sidelines. If you have considerable cash savings, I would suggest you start soon to learn what you can about inflation and what it can do to the value of your savings.
          Or, you can just remain in denial. No sweat off my back.

        • Leo

          Ken,

          ” Now , no smart business man will sell you something of value for worthless dollars.”

          What a naive thing to say!!!

          In the same vein you could ask why would a retail garments merchant sell a coat if it is so good?

          Can you see the absurdity of your statement?

          Those precious metals dealers are just in a business of retail selling or rather RESELLING the stuff. They are making a living from the difference in prices. Can you get this simple concept?

          I assure you that most if not all of them have been buying the metals in their own accounts as much as they can afford it.

          I guess only being in some kind of denial can explain your attitude towards paper federal reserve dollars and constitutional money, which is ONLY gold and silver.

          That paper has already lost 97% of its value since the inception in 1913.

          This country had been screwed since then. It just did know that. We are now witnessing the last inning of the game. A losing one on our part!

          We have no political influence, we have no money to speak of, we have no jobs, we have no productive industry, we have more than 50% of population not able to pay any taxes, we have the majority of population dumbed down by the educational system, who still are not able to see the hole we are in. What else have I missed?

          We are, I mean our standard of living, to fall BELOW the Chinese to have a chance to compete with them. But then we still will have no productive industry or skilled workers, and we still will have those oppressive for it grow laws, and those parasite unions, and those entitlement programs we cannot afford. What else have I missed?

          So, the saddest thing is you are perfectly justified to be in a denial. Because we are so screwed that the denial is the safest psychological place to be. For now…

          We the people can change nothing short of outright revolution because our political system along with our monetary and financial systems have been hijacked by the elite. But as history showed, with a revolution it is always very iffy. Especially when the politicians – the elite’s concubines, I mean of both parties, still have the army to squash us.

          So all we can do is just wait out hoping that AFTER economy and the paper money completely collapsed there will be a way to return to the precepts of the Constitution.

          But if we’d want to speak about something outside of feeling psychologically safe, silver and, to a lesser extent, gold is the safest place to be right now.

    I thought Chris ['progressives can do no wrong'] Matthews was a complete screw-up. I stand corrected. His estimation of Obummer’s utter worthlessness is right.
    That doesn’t let Obummer off any hook. Like Chamberlain, Obummer has no clue. His ideas are grounded in political theories, he does not live in the real world and he relies on anarchists to help him ‘consider’ a topic.
    The secret is out, America. Obummer can’t part the Red Sea or turn water into wine or raise the dead. He can’t communicate with or without a teleprompter.
    God help us. We’re stuck with a self-made LOSER in the White House. Israel may be on their own. God help them AND us. Obummer can’t and won’t.

  • David Uitenbroek

    It is obvious Mr. Meyer and I are the only corks floating on top of the idiot sea.

    We continue to fund war by printing money. Obama wants to print money to fund his socialist/communist agenda i.e. appeasement. Either path, printing fiat to fund war or socialism leads to HYPERINFLATION!

    It is obvious at this point in our history if we do both war and government dole the state of hyperinflation is arrived at more quickly.

    So our choices are hyperinflate defending our country or hyperinflate bailing out government. Keeping in mind our enemies are inflating their money supply to fight war.

    So to the Idiot Sea…do you want to die fighting or die whining? I will be watching with Schadenfreude.

      It is obvious obama has a soft spot for muslim’s, his “dad” was a muslim. This would explain why it took obama 4 months to send more troop’s to afghan and tell Israel to stop building hut’s for her people and give the land back to pakistan. The threat of nuke’s from Iran may work to obama’s advantage to silence Israel. I don’t believe sanctions on Iran will ever do any good especially since China will play no part in it. Military action from the US?… No I really doubt it just take a look at North Korea..

Let’s not resort to nonsensical comments about Sarah Palin either, you can do better than that. Your crazed illogical hatred is showing. The fact remains, President Obama and Bush have sold us down the river, both didn’t(Obama probably won’t) have a realistic plan to deal with the massive amounts of debt our country is building up. Maybe perhaps we can replay the 1930′s again and have the government declare it is illegal to own gold and throw one in jail if they don’t give it over to the government. That sounds like fun, maybe then they can do the same with silver,or anyone owning more than one car. Better, perhaps owning a car not made by GM(Government Motors)

        • Joe H.

          OEF Vet,
          now if you had been paying attention to Fox News, you would know that Bush is on a bill board out west asking “Do you miss me yet”? It was put up by some businessmen who think Obummer has abandoned all thought of them.

  • mike

    We made Iran what it is today. It is because they fear covert manipulation of their political system and attack from the US and israel that they are developing nukes.
    We should have paid better attention to the advice of the founding fathers and left well enough alone.
    We have no business making war in the middle east. Undeclared war, at that. All it does is provoke extremism and thus a perpetual theft of liberty and wealth from honest Americans.
    We would do better to strengthen our military against foreign attack and secure our own borders, rather than spend our blood and gold defending an overseas empire that hates us.

    • Norm

      mike
      I agree.
      By removing Saddam from Iraq, we eliminated Iran’s worst enemy (at a trillion dollar IOU taxpayer expense). Good work Bush and Cheney. With leaders like you we don’t need enemies.
      If we would invest in surgical strikes where needed, and covert activities that actually produce results, we would be far better off.
      As you stated, we have no good reason to be in the middle east, and if it wasn’t for THEIR oil supplies, we wouldn’t be there.

    • Meteorlady

      Thanks Mike – we surly did have hand in the middle east. A BIG hand. Saddam was our puppet as were a few others for a time. We helped divide up Palestine and move the Israelis into the area after the war. We have meddled in that area for a long long time and should have left them alone. There has never been a democracy in that area and probably never will be even after we leave Iraq.

      • Claire

            JoeH–I should have made myself more clear–back in the 50s and 60s the government sterilized the Native American women under false pretenses. The women were supposed to be fitted with birth control devices but were “sterilized” instead. Of course, the women were under anesthesia so they did not know what was going on. Then they wondered why they couldn’t have any kids, and when they went to a doctor, they sure found out. Casinos? I never go to them. I do not support casinos. It honks me off to lose money. I assume they started the casinos to make money but it invariably turned out to be detrimental to their own people.

      Ed,

      I’m inclined to believe the Israeli-Palestinian issue is more of a distraction for us now, than a strategic issue. Of course, we need to take measures to support a resolution there, but without getting too deeply involved again, if we can. Obviously, Israel is an ally, but we are also trying to expand our reach and influence in the Middle East sufficiently to protect the world’s oil supplies and combat terrorist activities where ever they show up. Israel appears to be strong enough to defend themselves against foreign attack when necessary, but in any event I’m sure we’ll will watch Israel’s back in the event they really do need our help to defend themselves again. The main thing right now is for the US to try to stay focused on its current mission in the Middle East without having new “fires” pop up in the region.

  • DaveH

    Personally, I think that Russia would turn on Iran in a heartbeat if they used their Nukes in an unprovoked attack against Israel.
    With all the saber rattling that the US has done over the decades about countries acquiring Nuclear Weapons, we have still been the only country to have ever used a Nuke against any other country.
    Quit being so myopic.
    We should treat Iran like Reagan treated Russia. Let them waste all their money on military spending until their country collapses from within. Which, by the way, is going to be our fate if we don’t get off this arrogant notion that we can continue forever to be the World’s Policemen.

    • DaveH

      We should quit wasting our resources trying to change the Zealots in the middle-eastern countries. We can’t even bring our own Zealots on the far-left to their senses. How could we possibly hope to change the Islamic Fanatics?

      Early 1980′s conventional nuclear ICBMs could dig a hole 500 miles in diameter, burn crispy black everything @ 1000 mi. and irradiate past 1500 miles. How many fission warheads would be nessary to melt flesh within any country? The use of tactical nukes (ex. nuke-pak) demonstrates the restraint necessary to “preserve” life during modern combat. I did not mention the former “Soviet” suitcase dirty bombs eventhough, we know of at least one entering the U.S.A. by trace detection. Think about this a moment, just to get some perspective. Then decide if you will throw your friends to the dogs, and turn your face the other way. It will only expose your backside to the consequenses. http://www.americancongressfortruth.org

  • Robert

    It would be very foolish of Israel if they did a pre-emptive attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. Other than the US, they would find themselves alone amoung the world’s countries (even though many would be pleased). Even though that nut job of a president in Iran keeps saying he’ll wipe Israel off the face of the map, I’m not so sure he, the Iranian government, their military, mullahs and most importantly the people would be so suicidal. I believe Israel has not only the US but many other Western nations that have military alliances with them. In the case of an unprovoked Iranian attack on Israel, most likely Israel would declare war. Here’s where Obama would be put to the task. If he and the Congress did not declare war on Iran in response, then every military agreement we have with other nations would be considered useless and a testament of how the US will fold when a real response is necessary. I believe we’ll all just have to wait and see what Iran does next. This so called Commander in Chief has allowed this situation to escalate because on National Security and Terrorism he has shown he doesn’t have the backbone, guts or experience to lead.

      • Robert

        I think it would take more than 1 or 2 nukes to obliterate them. No way will Iran have more then that and they don’t have a reliable delivery system. My preference if I were president would be to just nuke the bastards right now and be done with it. But then, I from the Bronx. We don’t procrastinate.

    (Sentence removed for offensive content). Your President w talked about everything he would do if North Korea ever exploded a nuclear bomb. Well, they did and your w did nothing. Also it appears that your w ended the policy of being able to win 2 wars at the same time. Your w was in Afghanistan for over 6 years and he ran away from trying to win. Your w promised about OBL: “He can run. But he can not hide.” Well, guess who is hiding in Texas? My President Clinton gave a $200 Billion surplus to your w. Your w gave a $1.2 Trillion DEFICIT to my Black President Obama. You know these are all facts, but we all know you do not have the guts to write about them. Please write an article of why your w sent US troops into Afghanistan and how did he pay for all his wars. Did your w raise taxes? NO! Did your w cut services? NO! Did your w borrow every dime for his two wars? YOU BETCHA! Now grow up and behave yourself.

      Joel…
      I’ll bet you have trouble staying on task in everything you say and do. This article has nothing to do with President Bush. You only continue bashing him because you haven’t any highlights of Barry’s presidency to dwell on, and chances are you never will. The present administration is in command now, and accountable now. You can’t change history, but hopefully history’s lessons can be learned!

      • Claire

        I would hope that we all have learned a lesson from the Democrats AND the Republicans. Neither party is without fault–admit it. So as far as I am concerned, when someone bashes a party, the other party is equally as guilty. Maybe in different ways, but nonetheless guilty. America has been rolled over by both parties.

      Joel I have had both as my Commander and Chief and George Bush was the best one of all. I shouldn’t sat this but Obama wouldn’t care if those Muslims killed all of us over there fighting. I am not sure that he might be setting us up for a massacre .

        First of all, the wars are ongoing, so bemoaning & blaming is counter-productive…YOUR President Obama (WHY is the adjective “Black” necessary?) HAS increased the deficit THREE TIMES “W’”’s in 12 months AND INCREASED troops in a war you obviously object to, so who needs to grow up and behave? YES, “W” CUT services in HIS budget BUT CONGRESS put them back in and increased spending. BOTH wars cost $915 billion in 7 years, Obama has spent 3 TRILLION in ONE YEAR and his answer is to spend MORE. That is like adding more water to a sinking ship…we should be bailing water OUT i.e. cut spending. The FACT IS CONGRESS is the main culprit here, BOTH SIDES (D&R), all they care about is keeping their jobs, so whatever way the wind blows is how they vote. And they SPEND, as much as they can, always, so they can say to their constituents “Look what I got you”, vote me back in. It is time to get rid of all the professional politicians and vote in people who SERVE the REPUBLIC…for a LIMITED TIME. We are in a terrible mess and being partisan and blaming and comparing is a dead end. We need to learn from our mistakes and move forward. And whoever posted that we give foreign aid to Israel needs to look at how much foreign aid we give to EVERYBODY! I DO agree, it is time to STOP, how about starting right there to cut spending? The radicals are going to continue to hate us, no matter what we do, time to bring all our troops home, put them on the borders, stop ALL immigration until we get a handle on it, cut the “fat” and the waste, stop all foreign aid (other than catastrophic…ie Haiti) put money into defending the U.S. and taking care of U.S. citizens.

            you are a real case joel the truth is the first thing bush tried to do before 911 was to start shrinking the size of government by cutting the budget of the number one destroyer of business and thereby jobs the epa. the first thing the epa did in response was to file a law suite against the heavy engine mfgr’s, caterpiller 100 mil, cummins 100 mil, detriot 100 mil, mack i think over 100 mil, and mercedes don’t believe me look it up on the govs website they settled out of court for somewhat less. as a result mack sold out to none other than the only mfgr not named in the suit and ironically located in the capital of the green movement volvo. certain branches of our own gov are holding the entire nation hostage and all you can do is focus on the color of your theif in chiefs skin

    Amazing, we have so many Americans (including our president) that believe the Iranians think, and have the same values as us. How many Americans do you think would strap a bomb on and kill other people and themselves in the belief that they are on the way to heaven and doing Gods work. .Israel understands that the only thing they understand is strength and without U.S. support they will have no choice but to strike first.. Remember the 6 day war, Israel can defeat much bigger armies, they are not the trouble maker they are just trying to survive. They are Gods chosen people heaven help us if we turn our back on them.

    • Joseph

      Sonny , you are confusing Iran with Al Queda . Iranians do not strap bombs to themselves. Iran has not attacked any of its neighbors in the last 100 years. Iraq attacked Iran in 1980. I just do not see Iran as a threat to us (USA) . That Israel feels threatened is not my concern. They have 200 nuclear weapons and German submarines which can fire ballistic missiles. Clearly we do not need to worry about Israel .

      • Dale

        Joseph . . . Iran has financed every terrorist organization in the region for many years. They participated with Syria in the take over of Lebanon . . . and their leader AkmedDinnerJacket is certifiable!!

          Dale,

          The USA supported and supports much more terrorists organizations than anybody else in history.

          By the way, Al Quada was created and financed by the USA too. Do not forget about it.

          And right now the USA needs an enemy to justify spending the money we do not have to continue enriching the military complex. Would you give it any money if there were no terrorists? NO!

      • Sonny

        Joseph, If you think Islamists have some type of aversion to who they are willing to work with, to kill people, on some ethnic basis you are mistaken. Al Qaeda meets and recruits in Iran with the knowledge of thier administration as well as ours. I agree with you Israel doesn’t need our help if things go atomic, but to refrain from that we have to be with them. I also agree most Iranians are not Al Qaeda just like most Germans were not Nazis but we know the end result of that. Looks like we came full circle Israel has to protect herself.

      • John K

        Joseph – Do you not understand that Iran is what is historically known as Persia, and was also part of the Ottoman Empire prior to WW1? Do you not understand that it is an “Aryan” nation and contributed one of the eleven corps of SS for the last major Aryan ruler (his name was Adolph Hitler, for those of you who think world history began after 1950). WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Iran is, and for over three thousand years has been, an aggressor nation and was the original enemy nation of democracy (for those of you who only study history through recent Hollywood “educational” presentations, think “300″, as in the 300 Spartans who stopped the Persians (Iranians) at Thermopoli and saved the democratic cities of Greece from Persian (Iranian) domination. If Persia had not been stopped, Western Civilization would never have happened, they would have made one of your ancestors a eunuch, and you would never have been born to prove on the internet that you are such a poor student of history.

      • L, USA

        Curtis S, Israel is refered to by God as the woman, in the same line where the devil is known as the dragon which releases a flood that means people. This was when King Herod sought to kill Jesus Christ when He was born. Again, in history (leaf upon leaf and …) now as the world turns upon Israel. Great Britian, once England now one kingdom, is the Lion, America is the lion’s welps or cubs. Now that America is being torn apart from within and the military is being effectively de-clawed; It seems to be becoming innotable as a world power.

    All I can say is hold on to your hats, we’re in for a hell of a ride!!! I think it’s almost comical that people want to keep God out of politics. If you believe in God at all you know that He is in control and in fact, if you believe in the God of the Holy Bible you know how the story ends…and the story does end…sorry. No where in the Bible does it say that man will have peace on earth until the Lord returns…and until he does, Satan will have his way with man and create more and more chaos…if you want to find THE SOLUTION, I would highly recommend getting on your knees and pleading for Jesus to accept you into his Family right now!!!

    But, what do I know right??? I’m just some “wild eyed preacher”.

    Make straight your paths my friends, there’s is no way to change the inevitable ending of the story of man. Gods’s word is unchangeable.

    If you do not believe in the Holy Scriptures, it is of no value to you. For the unbeliever to use scripture is to confuse the bellever and cause doubt. Doubt is a sin, know who you are and do not be swayed. Israel is the focal point of all the earth. THose that gather to aid and stand with Israel will be blessed. Clinton (Pres) did a no no, he took the hand of the Israeli President and the hand of Yassir Arafat and thrust them together in a hand shake that would not have happened. THis was the reason we were open to 9/11. What is going to be the next reason for us to be attacked. I believe that it has already happened. The election of a Muslim as President. So get a grip on your lives and seek a passion being offered to your soul. Life as we know it is in dire jeopardy. Pray up, look up, your redeemption draws near. As far as Israel attacking Iran, I believe it will happen and soon, they will defend their country. Unlike our “leaders” are doing for us, it is easy to close our borders and that is armed personnel on the border with the tolerance to “”Protect”" its citizenry.

Now since YOU brought up The Lord Jesus Christ, whom God hath raised from the dead and seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth and now sitteth on the right hand of God and knowing that For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever because we know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will and so His own can rest knowing when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (Paul said because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. It is great knowing That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    WHY WOULD I BUY GOLD WHEN IT’S AT RECORD HIGHS RIGHT NOW!

    HUGE PROFIT.

    • DaveH

      This is why JZOOM,
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperinflation

      The decline in the buying power of currency is only limited if the amount of currency created is limited. Right now, money is being spent by Government and created like it is going out of style.
      Once the devastation of Inflation starts manifesting itself, it takes Leaders of great courage to stop the spending and money creation as by then many people have been caught up in the inflationary spiral, and there is great suffering when that spiral is brought to a halt.
      Also notable, is that Governments tend to help their gang members first and citizens last. So their natural inclination is to keep escalating the payrolls for Government employees to offset the inflation that the Government caused in the first place.

      I doubt that our Leaders have the kind of fortitude that it takes to stop inflation anytime soon.

      Gold typically retains it’s buying power in relation to goods and services. Meanwhile, due to excess money creation, the buying power of the dollar will become worth less and less as more dollars are created. So, there is no ceiling in the dollar price of gold.

  • W. H. Martin

    If you liked Reagan, you should love Obama. He has changed nothing. We might as well be in the eighth administration of Reagan. Obama is beholden to the corporate and financial elite and to Israel the same as the five before him. The Mideast will become more polite when Iran gets the bomb. Iran has not started a war in 200 years. Iran will not attack Israel and let us hope Israel has the sense not to attack Iran. After the next internal revolution Iran will be our most important ally in the Mideast. Israel cannot survive as an apartheit Jewish state in which Christians and Muslims are second-class citizens. They long since blew their chance at a 2-state solution. In a democratic single state they will soon be a minority.

    • L, USA

      First, Comparing President Ronald Reagan with the current occupant is like comparing day with night, zip. Secondly, All America “owes” Israel is everything we share in our same God. Thirdly, “Iran” being Persia HAS declared war on Israel, and currently supplies weapons and training to islamic militants. Fourthly, Israel is a soveriegn state and owes nothing to Persia nor the arabs, egyptians and other that occupy the gaza shore, north bank, etc. Neither will the Land of Israel be divided without a curse. It is the Word of The LORD GOD. Read it in English OKJV.

        Also, Persia stems from the seed of Abraham and Hagar, his egyptian hand maiden. Israel (Heb. He who wrestles with God), origionaly Jacob, was born of Abraham and Sarah, his wife, and received the greater blessing. Persia being the seed of Ishmael, is true to his blessing which includes being a “wild ass” with his hand against his brother. Today, the fighting continues and America must defend Israel and the whelps! As Great Brittian should have but has nearly forsaken all.

    People best hope that we stay sided with Isreal. So many unbelievers is very scary. When the time is Right for the battle of the valley of Geddon, Isreal will be victorious. These talibans or al-quedas, what ever in heck they are, promise that tomorrow, Feb 11th, will see wrath unleashed upon the american people like they have never seen. I say ask them to do us a favor and take out our present congress and while they’re at it take out the black house too, ooops, I mean the white house.

    Israel is as much of threat to world peace as Iran is. Why is it that Israel is permitted to have and maintain nuclear weapons? And please do not say it is for self defense. Baloney! It is time to get real about this so-called democracy called Israel. In reality Israel is more of a menace in the world than Iran will ever be.
    It is time to call an end to the hypocrisy.
    America! The lackey of Israel.

    • Dale

      Vinnie . . . your liberal relativism button is slipping . . . equating Democratic Israel with the lunatics running Iran is borderline NUTS!!!
      Never has a democratic country used a nuclear weapon, except to end a long war. But you want to bet your future on crazies like the North Korea Midget and AkmedDinnerJacket . . . are you a relative of Jimmah Kartah?

      • Vinnie

        It is you who are living in the never never land of Oz…oops! I meant Israel! Israel is no democracy! It is a menace of the same cloth as North Korea, Al Qaida, and the Taliban!

      Wow!!! Vinnie,

      Are you for real? I have never seen such anti-semitism in one place in my life. What’s with you people??? Why do you all hate Israel and the Jews??

      What did the Jews, or Israel do to deserve this hatred? I’m only asking because I’m so shocked!

      I know that Europe still has a lot of Anti-semitism, but right here???

      I’m stunned!!!

  • Patrick McDonald

    You all say you need cash to run a war. What is the enemy doing to run a war? How far will an enemy go if America were not present? Who would want their children to live under the shadow of a total war in the Middle East? How did Americans escape Tyranny from Europe? Escape evasion migration fighting trade technology and probably banking acumen. We are just people. The world is being burdened with an overload of people competing for resources. The decisions come from the upper most tiers and the upper echelon. ya keep runnin and runnin until there is no place to run then you gotta turn and work on a new defense. First we have a dialog to resolve problems. We prevent the problems as much as possible. If the problems cannot resolved peacefully; dangerous action may ensue. How can we turn the world around from danger to a world of prosperity and enlightenment? JFK presented the DIA to counter balance and compliment the CIA. JFK tried to turn things around. He professed;”Peace through Space.” Maybe his idea was industrial complexes can be turned into plow shears ventures to offset the needs of the machines to go to war. An olive branch is offered at first. People forget the sweetness of no war. The profiteering and ugliness of hatred reignites bringing the world into an inferno again. We The People should stand by the 10 Commandments no matter what religion,force or state we live in. The 10 Commandments are good rules to live by for clean living. People are already dangerous let alone going to war with them. No matter how much we level the field; there will always be sick people who will want to practice harming life. When we are in the desert and a man is thirsty; a shared cup of ice water is a universal language of love and care. We have to be careful not to let ego get in the way of practicality. The streets of life are already filled with enough violence. We all share in the food chain of life. Earth is our home. We only have one Eden. Be careful of the psychopaths who lead the civilization to destruction. Be cool and know when to act. “Starvation is my allied.” General MacArthur of Arkansas.

  • IrishIan

    I couldn’t agree more, if we trimmed the “fat” in Washington stop all the extra spending we don’t want, stop foreign aid and tended to our own affairs for just a year or two, we could probably get rid of the deficit and have a surplus (I haven’t done the math but so that is an assumption). And if we went to a fair tax and the gold standard in that same time frame there is no telling what type of prosperity this country could enjoy once again. But it all starts with the grass roots efforts, talking about it on the bulletins is a good source of information on how like minded people think, but I encourage everyone to get involved in the process. Find a candidate in your local area and donate what you can ie: Time or money to their election campaign. We have a chance to make a real difference coming up soon but it takes action and not just words. Lets be a part of the solution.

    • California70

        Manufacturing has been chased out of this country by over-priced Union Members and high taxes. The only cure for that is to get the Government out of business. Their only function in the Marketplace should be to enforce voluntary contracts.

  • Roger

    My dear fellow Americans, you are running in circles and no one is listening. If you are to understand what is going on in the world today, you must understand that the structure of your discussion is flawed. The discussion should not be about Republicans vs Democrats and what each administration has done wrong to get us to this situation. We must understand the basic causes of the situation and understand the motives of the players.
    Joel, you criticize President Bush for building a deficit and for not acting decisively against our enemies. In some ways I agree with you. However if President Bush’s deficit is so bad then why are the Democrats building a larger deficit? If the over spending of government or under taxing of the people caused the problem, how can increasing spending and driving up the deficit correct the problem. If not acting decisively is a problem then why is President Obama’s decisions so week and delayed.
    If you are going to judge a leader you must first understand his/her motives. This is where political analysis comes into play. There are 6 political objectives and you must judge a president by which political objective he/she is trying to obtain. The list of objectives are, going from right to left: anarchists (no government), libertarians (very limited government), conservatives (small effective, government), socialists (large democratic government), progressives (all powerful government) and communists (all powerful and tyrannical). Considering that a person is usually not completely one or the other, which political view do you think Bush and Obama espouse.
    Clearly, Obama is a progressive through and through. He is a world class ideolog. Nothing will do unless it fits into his Progressive plans. That is why he cannot let go of the healthcare bill.
    Bush on the other hand is a cross between a conservative and a progressive. His tax plan was conservative and his drug plan was Progressive.
    Bush took his constitutional duties of protecting the US very seriously (maybe too seriously) and Obama does not. That is why there is such a difference in their approach to terrorism.
    I invite you to look up the platform of Progressives on the net and see if you agree with them. Most of our domestic problems are not being solved because progressives do not want them solved. By letting the problems fester and get worse the progressives plan to convince the American public that only a large powerful government can resolve these problems, which of course in nonsense.
    BTW, regardless of what you hear in the mainstream media, Bush’s deficit was not the cause of our current recession. We have had deficits that large and larger and did not have these problems. The root cause of our current financial woes is twofold. First, there was the creation of sub-prime mortgages. These were part of the Urban Redevelopment Act first passed in the Carter administration and then significantly strengthened in the Clinton administration. The purpose of this provision of the act was to allow poorer families to obtain the “American Dream” of owning their own house. However it resulted in hundreds of thousands of people with gigantic mortgages that could not possible be repaid. The act also provided protection of the banks giving these mortgages by backing them up through FanniMay and FrediMac. When people began to default on their mortgages it started a chain reaction that almost brought our financial systems to the ground. The worse part of this was that the junk mortgages were packaged up into derivatives and sold on the world market. China bought up most of these derivatives and when their value tanked, China wanted their money back. That is the main reason for the “bailout”. The government gave money to the banks so they could pay back the lost value of the derivatives. We could not let our big banks fail. If you don’t believe me, go to a small local bank in your town and ask the bank manager.

    • Joel

      Hi Roger, Thanks for agreeing with me. have to answer these simple questions:
      Why did w send US Troops into Afghanistan? Give all his reasons.
      How did w pay for his 2 wars? He didn’t raise taxes or cut services. HINT: He borrowed every dime.
      Why did your w double the National Debt from $5.2 Trillion dollars to over $11 Trillion dollars?
      Do you agree that the GOP ran this government for 75% of w’s years?
      Did your w EVEN VETO a spending bill with the Dems in control? The answer is NO. Why not?
      Where was the GOP Health care Bill when they ran this country for 75% of your w’s years? Good luck making up lies?

            Joel,
            OBL is long dead! Do you happe to know any nurses or Doctors? Just ask one what the chances are – that anyone that has Kidney disease and is on a dialysis machine can run around in Mountain for years on end…and still be alive?

            OBL was a Dialysis patient and his people carried around an old wringer type washing machine to hook him up for a crude form of dialysis. That means OBL had to have a shunt in his arm or leg. If that shunt get very dirty he will contract an infection. How dirty does one get tramping around in the mountains and caves all day long?

            Believe me when I tell you….OBL is long, long, long dead!!!

            Our government uses this as a means to an end.

      Roger just wrote: “Bush took his constitutional duties of protecting the US very seriously (maybe too seriously) and Obama does not. That is why there is such a difference in their approach to terrorism.”

      Sounds like you place 9-11 and the Shoe Bomber took place Under President Obama. Dollface, they both occurred during the Puke’s w.

      And the Christmas day bomber started his flight in Nigeria. Do you want a much larger US Government to have tens of thousands of US Federal employees all over the world’s airports?

      That will cost a lot more money? So you want the US Government to raise your taxes?

      • Joe H.

        Joel,
        your hero Obummer said that Afghanistan was the necessary war. i guess even he agrees with Bush on that huh?

    • USA

      TO ROGER

      I strongly disagree with your statement, “The purpose of this provision of the act was to allow poorer families to obtain the American Dream of owning their own house.” But I agree, “However it (Clinton’s programs) resulted in hundreds of thousands of people with gigantic mortgages that could not possible be repaid.”

      Clinton created Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae programs so CEOs and politiicans (including Obama) can get hundreds of millions in bonuses and benefits, and Clinton could win his 2nd term.

      The elites specificly created these programs, so their elite circle can own people’s houses when they (the poor) default on their mortgages. The elites and bankers know there is no way the poor could qualify or afford this. The Fed printed money and gave money to their circle friends to buy America’s assets. They are buying banks for pennies on the dollar. What a way to exchange wealth nicely. I guess this fits your definition of communists which are all powerful and tyrannical.

      • Joel

        USA, why do you need to lie? Facts: “In 1970, Fannie Mae’s authority was further extended to allow for the purchase of conventional mortgages (non-government-insured loans) for its portfolio. To increase liquidity and stability in the mortgage market, Congress chartered the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, known as Freddie Mac, in 1970, and authorized it to purchase and pool conventional mortgages. Freddie modeled its programs after those of Ginnie Mae. Fannie continued to hold all of the mortgages it purchased until 1981, when it began to pool mortgages.”

        And when was Clinton President? You and all you pukes should stop lieing. As Ken would say: “JESUS CHRIST WILL KILL YOU.”

    Russia just announced that it will work with obama to sanction Iran. China last week said it won’t because they need the oil too badly. We are in massive finaccial debt to China.So if their is a war who’s side do you think China will be on? You attack Obama for wanting an unproven missle defense shield system in the Gulf. Yet when liberals went after the unproven STAR WARS system conservatives went ballistic. Lots of double speak on both sides.We can barely (financially) fight 2 wars and now some are pushing for a 3rd. To hell with the national debt! Double speak here too. I agree that there could be a civil war in Iraq and Iran would come out the winner. I do stand behind Israel for many reasons. BUT preaching war so you can make a profit in gold is a lousy way to do business.

    • Joel

      Exactly how many of the 9/11 hijackers were from Iran, Iraq or Afghanistan? 15 of the 19 were from Saudi Arabia. Plus there’s many questions about that day pointing to CIA involved in the 9/11 atacks.

      Look up Michael Springman in charge of visas in Saudi Arabia who exposed CIA links to the attacks.

      There’s also LT. Col Anthony Shaffer, a member of Able Danger, that says there was pre-knowledge of something about to happen.

    Looks like Obama is supporting Israel a little on the sly. The anti-war lefties who will converge on Capital Hill in March (if the snow melts)aren’t happy with their president as it is.

    “”"”According to a January 11 report in the weekly paper Defense News, the Obama administration previously mapped out a plan that would place $400 million worth of military arsenal in Israel, but that project was exactly doubled after a meeting in December between the Israeli military’s technology and logistics branch, and Rear Adm. Andy Brown, logistics director of the US Army European Command.

    Included in this agreement is the caveat that Israel, after approval from the US government, would be able to access the American weapon and ammunition stockpile in case of a military “emergency.” The terms and definition of such an “emergency,” including against whom the weaponry could be used, remain unclear.”"”"

  • http://www.personalliberty.com Wildcat from Dallastown, PA

    Our manchild president is, and has been over his head since the day after he duped enough “voters” in November 2008. He has never held or served in a significant position of leadership predicated on specialized education and training and absolute vetting. He fails to have the requisite ethics along with having demonstrated any ability allowing him to even try to serve in any position of greater authority and responsibility requiring the special trust and confidence of the people much less the top elected one in this country.

    Of course he is incompetent. He refuses to fully understand he is a wartime president. He still firmly believes he can engage the enemy zealots and overcome their issues with us through his vast teleprompter skills and witty verbal repartee. That is also why he focused on prosecuting the war on prosperity here in America, executed policies shoving the country towards Socialism and the federal government’s continued attempt to take over health care and all while spending the country into oblivion!

    Based upon the documented high number of his personal actions before entering the presidential race and since “winning” the election, he could not pass the vetting for enlistment in any of our armed services, much less be granted a security clearance. Why would a newly elected president take the effort to legally seal all of his academic records from the schools in America he attended? Since he was thought to be the smartest person many in the lamestream media have ever met it couldn’t be his grades. However, maybe it has a block checked as “foreign student” and then indicates what country he is from upon enrollment.

    I was serving on active duty at the time Israel destroyed Iraq’s nuclear reactor. My thoughts at the time included many indicating a safer place the world is from that loon we later had to forcibly remove and the other validating my personal assessment of the Israeli Defense Force. Confirmation of Biblical facts grew as one more time Israel accomplished a military mission many thought undoable. I was glad they attacked and took out that emerging threat. Saddam, another believer of Islam, had the same views Mahmoud in Iran has now; he just went about attacking the Jews differently. Saddam paid $25K martyr bonuses to the remaining family members of the suicide bombers who blew themselves up while killing Jews (primarily in Israel). He would have liked to use nuclear weapons on Israel but he didn’t have them. Saddam did fire SCUD missiles, which he threatened to have chemical munitions in the warheads, into Israel during the Gulf War in 1990/1991. I remember watching some well known Middle East region reporter (from America) trying to hurriedly don his protective mask during such an attack while on camera in Tel Aviv. My fellow professionals in the profession of arm and I thought that was humorous to watch as he pulled the straps way too far making the mask uncomfortably tight! The point is Saddam would have used nuclear warheads had he had them whereas Mahmoud is going full speed ahead to develop missile and nuclear weapons technology which he has stated on countless occasions to wipe Israel off the map using those specific weapons.

    At some point during my service I mentioned to a senior officer conducting a briefing on the situation in the Middle East and possible scenarios that we might pursue, that since we are still in that region with all our projected combat power, why don’t we just turn east and resolve that Iranian issue? He calmly went over the various characteristics of the terrain involved and then I realized the greater challenge than originally thought existed. The short answer is we could have simply headed east in our tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles (and all the remaining combat vehicles & the combat support and combat service support) and quickly just get there. It would have taken a major sealift and airlift operation to get us there for battle. The terrain is vastly different than Iraq including the type of desert, mountains and road networks.

    Now if Israel (or us for example) had absolutely accurate intelligence on the various weapons components manufacturing facilities and petroleum refining locations in Iran, those could be neutralized by denying them the ability to use them for a significant period of time by the use of persistent chemical weapons delivered by GPS controlled missiles and complicated (for the enemy anyway) by incorporating additional smart weapons to degrade their ability to decontaminate any otherwise usable facilities. Before anyone thinks about that they better deal with Iran’s satellite of “Hope” or “Change” or whatever they called it. I suspect the hope or change they called it deals with their military ability. It wouldn’t be good to get your weapon(s) all the way inside Iranian territory only to be intercepted before the target followed up with a retaliatory attack on the launching platform, and nation. Also, if the decision is made to execute that mission, then go all the way and neutralize their ability to respond.

    And now for my comments on others’ previously made comments relative to this article. Just like most places in America, the range of understanding and opinions vary greatly. OEF Vet has a remarkably clear understanding of Islam and the limits of their tolerance of us in their countries. Others, who I will not identify but apparently, drank far too many liters of Obama’s special Progressive kool-aid. Their comments are riddled with half-truths and otherwise false and misleading statements rather than anything resembling a fact. If you want to get a unique view of the Middle East, one from more of a Christian world view, read the books written by Joel Rosenberg beginning with, “The Last Jihad”. His books are interesting to read and Biblically accurate. Look at his website to get the titles of his other books. Below I’ll include some information on Islam that I learned from both school and from personally participating in a seminar on the subject and doing some additional reading. I’ve read of but not yet had the opportunity to read books of a similar nature by a former Muslim woman by the name of Nonie Darwish. She gives a woman’s perspective about her experiences in Islam and their beliefs and life is all about.

    There are several concepts about Islam that I learned in my public school system’s World Cultures class in high school that, for the most part were absolutely correct. One was that Islam is NOT a religion of peace as evidenced by their sole method of conversion by the sword; either converts on the spot or die! The one aspect that I was taught that was later proven to be a half-truth at worst was that Islam was one of the world’s three monotheistic religions. I since have learned that “Allah” is a pantheon of about 360 gods of the Middle Eastern region of the world. The one aspect that was not taught in public school (either due to time allotted to teach that topic, what Muslims expect to find in Paradise or perhaps the writings of Islam had not yet been translated adequately as identified below) concerning what they must do to get to heaven.
    However, the preponderance of the details concerning what we call Islam I learned from personally listening to one of the authors of the book entitled, “Unveiling Islam; An Insider’s Look at Muslim Beliefs and Life” by Ergun Mehmet Caner and Emir Fethi Caner. The speaker was Ergun Caner who grew up in a dysfunctional Muslim family first in Sweden then in Ohio, was strictly compliant with the Muslim requirements but had a Christian friend at high school who kept inviting him to church for revivals and social functions. Eventually Ergun converted but continued his Christian education becoming a pastor as well as a Christian academic by earning his doctoral degree in Christian Theology/Divinity.
    Ergun and his brother Emir reveal the facts about Islam’s arch prophet, Muhammad that one needs to understand and explains very clearly the contents of the primary teachings of Islam as found in the Qur’an, the Sunnah and the Hadith. Once you are made aware of when Muhammad lived (about 760 AD), the routines of his daily life that reveal just how he wrote the Qur’an and methods used to obtain wealth as well as deal with those whose path he crossed going from one oasis to another, you too will develop a more comprehensive understanding of Islam.
    In conclusion, I don’t plan of learning Arabic or Farsi as I plan to keep my military skills up and remain vigilant relative to my situational awareness. I was taught weapons and tactics for a reason which I can now transfer to personal security for myself and my family. The same procedures many of us were taught (and may have taught others) concerning everything from armed security, an active defense and all the associated operational concepts can easily be applied to taking care of ourselves and our families without much change. Some of the weapons change due to either simple legality of private ownership or, even if you could own one, they would be cost prohibitive. For example, it’s just too expensive to own and operate an M1 tank. But you don’t need one either. Use what you can legally and financially own based upon your needs and improvise as needed for the gaps or accept them and plan accordingly.

    Good Hunting to all of us warrior patriots because our “Doofus-In-Chief” (DIC) Obama surely isn’t going to be doing anything helpful for the American people.

            Joel, that may oh so true. Your now helping me make my point. Regardless, of our President being Republican or Democrat, if he will
            or would, let our American soldiers (WIN) and supply them with the
            troops and (FIRE-POWER) to win, they would NEVER lose any WAR. During
            a so-called CONFLICT, which is WAR! A President will set limitations
            on our soldiers, NOT TO FIRE, UNLESS FIRED UPON! which by all rights,
            BULLS**T! If our troop that thinks he, she, or it, is an enemy combatan should have the individual right to blow their A** away. Look, at the sunny-side, that would send their dumb-a** to their heaven and they could spend the rest of eternity chasing 70 virgins around. After all most of them, if given the chance will (BLOW) their
            on a** up, anyway, trying to kill American Soldiers. When, I see our
            troops coming home in boxes, coming home with arms, and legs gone, I
            get very emotional. When, I read or see, anyone that trys to degrade
            or belittle our American Soldier, I lose it and get fighting, killing
            mad on the inside. It’s fine for folks, to debate left vs right, Jesus

  • David G.

    There have been numerous factors that have led to the general decline in our once great USA. But at the front of the line has been the immense cost of our long term support for Israel that has been forced on all Americans by the Israel Lobby, and their wealthy supporters who call the shots with our politicians. The Israel Lobby even prevents an honest public debate on this issue from taking place.

    http://www.csmonitor.com/2002/1209/p16s01-wmgn.html

    There was a time not long ago when I felt a tinge of guilt being critical of Israel and what I was beginning to see as an expensive one sided relationship. No more! I realize now it is either us (as in USA) or them. We can’t continue to have our nation run to the benefit of an entangling alliance.

    • Marshabar

      Not sure why, maybe that I read everything I could get my hands on about the holocaust when I was young, but I have never questioned the friendship the United States and Israel.

      If you think about it, the United States is an exceptional country in that we are always first to lend a hand to people in need throughout the world. Even our enemies, David. Even those who stick a knife in us as we are handing them food.

      • David G.

        I’d suggest reading the “Israel Lobby” by Mearsheimer and Walt, and anything by Norm Finkelstein, if only to give you a balanced perspective from that which is force fed to you daily by the Israel Lobby (i.e. USA MSM).

        Americans have been indoctrinated into feeling a sense of sympathy for Israel for many years. You need to offset that propaganda with balanced opinions. Their goal is to convince Americans without any ties to Israel (non-Jewish Americans don’t have the right of return and can never become citizens) pay taxes and lives to support it.

        The power of propaganda is extremely difficult to offset, first because the propagandists are experts and always more focused than those they wish to manipulate. It takes some effort to become an independent thinker.

    What most people don’t understand about Chamberlain is the fact that Hitler was hoping to got to war in 1938. The Royal Air Force was not up to par at that time. Chamberlain knew this. Mussolini was the person who brokered the deal. Hitler was furious. Don’t take my word for it. Check it out yourself. Don’t take my comment as defense of Obama. I dislike all the jokers in Washington. Only because of Bush’s policies was he able to win. Things will get much worse. You wait and see.

    I honestly don’t understand what could be holding the price of Gold down now! With 15 of the worlds major countries steeped in a depression you would think that the price of Gold would be soaring! The worlds paper currencies have been in the tank for quite a while now and with this unprecidented destabilization on a global scale what on earth could be keeping the price of Gold or any other precious metal down? Could it be that there is an unseen hand controling the world’s metal prices as well? When I studied Economics in school they taught us that Demand and Supply dictated the Price. Right now there has never been a greater demand for Gold in history which hasn’t wavered for the last 24 months so how could the price go up and down like a roller coaster? Has anyone found out if China has had their Tungsten filled Gold bars replaced yet that they bought from the US?

    Why is everyone on this site such haters of Israel? I just don’t get it!

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    Joel, that is as far as I have caught up on my reading. I have been gone all day. The Constitution of the United States does not give a place to the enemy of the state. It is a sad time that a man who is elected President had to be elected as a Christian and after been in office for a short time be found to be more than sympathetic to our enemy. Of course, maybe you do not believe the 9/11 terrorists were the enemy of the state. I am not afraid to respond to anything that is either complimentary or critical of what I write or say. I have one question for you: are you a progressive? If so how did you become so degraded in thinking? If not you will resolve your comments about how can we think that a Muslim cannot be the President. Do you remember the Marine anthym, that has these lyrics, “from the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli”. That was lyrics from the Marines combating Muslims in the early days of our Nation. I believe Thomas Jefferson was President. The Muslims have been an enemy of the state for a long time only they did not attack us directly until 9/11. I donot hate Muslims, I donot trust them. THe Koran (sp) has some very specific wording concerning any negotiations with a non-Muslim. It is appease and attack from their perceived weakness of their enemy. Guess what America’s weakness is? It is taking the extreme in protecting the ones that have deceived us and holding the ones that protect us at arms length. WHere is it in the Constitution that we are to receive a liar as one to trust. Our current President has in one year told more lies than the dreaded G.W. Bush (President) did in eight years. Especially his lying to the Christian community which supported him solely on his being a black man that is a Christian: how bad can that be. Well it seems it has been a complete downer, betrayal, lack of trustworthiness, integrity out the window, and so on. THis does not give me the warm fuzzies. How about you?

    a recent Glenn Beck ( he’s on FOX.News) Show, he had a graph that illustrated the percentage of each past president’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet. You know what the private business sector is… a real life business, not a government job. Here are the percentages discussed by Mr. Beck.

    T. Roosevelt…….. 38%
    Taft…………………40%
    Wilson ……………… 52%
    Harding…………….49%
    Coolidge………….. 48%
    Hoover …………….. 42%
    F. Roosevelt……… 50%
    Truman………………50%
    Eisenhower………. 57%
    Kennedy………….. 30%
    Johnson…………….47%
    Nixon………………. 53%
    Ford………………… 42%
    Carter……………… 32%
    Reagan……………..56%
    GH Bush………….. 51%
    Clinton …………….. 39%
    GW Bush…………. 55%

    And the winner of the Chicken Dinner is…………..

    Obama……………. 8% !!!

    Yep! That’s right! Only Eight Percent!!!..the least by far of the last 19 presidents!! And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business? They know what’s best for GM…Chrysler… Wall Street… and you and me?

    How can the president of a major nation and society…the one with the most successful economic system in world history… stand and talk about business when he’s never worked for one?.. or about jobs when he has never really had one??!

    And neither has 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers.! They’ve spent most of their time in academia, government and/or non-profit jobs….or as “community organizers”…when they should have been in an employment line.

            in office, he didn’t have THE NUMBERS! None, people that don’t have a
            damn clue or can’t count to 60, while Obummer, has been in office the
            the REPUBLICANS DIDN’T STOP DO-DO, they didn’t HAVE THE NUMBERS and
            dumb-a** liberals can’t count and run around sayin, duh! duh! the
            REPUBLICANS BLOCK, DUH! EVERYTHANG OBUMMER IS TRYIN TO DO! DO! FOR US.
            Man, like I said, they and YOU, are a JOKE! And, I laugh at funny
            people and JOKES!

    • David Hall

      Mr. Daniiel Prestriedge, hang in there, Nov. ain’t but 9 LONG months,
      away till mid-term elections, after that obama will be POWERLESS to
      do anything, except veto. Same thing happen to President Bush, the last two years he was in office, as I’m sure you know all this. I can’t wait to 2012, we’ll hit pay-back dirt, then and obama will be
      OUT of our lives, minds, and eyes and will go down in history, as the
      most degraced President in America. The man and his policies, that
      destroyed, America or came very close! Uh! Like the sign says, miss
      Bush, yet?

      • Daniel Prestriedge

        That’s right David my good man.

        But as long as he’s in office we have to be alert…he’s an idealogue. He won’t listen to the people so we have to stay vigilant.

        God bless.

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    David and Daniel, you are right about blaming GW for everything. I blame him for not pursueing the impeachment of Carter and Clinton. I blame him for not being superman. I blame him for not having the intelligence community he should have had in place when he came into office. I blame him for starting a was without knowing the enemy that he was attacking in hopes of creating in the people a secure sense of betterment. Iraqi’s have been victims of abuse and genocide for over thirty years when GW attacked their nation. A little propoganda by Al Queda about the blood sucking and baby eating Christians coming and you had instant resistance to any sensible change coming in the lives of Iraqi’s and the Afghani’s. The culture of both countries is so absolutely different from anything that we know in this nation that to look at them and perceive their philosophy is a fools partaking. We have at least some checks and balances. Over there they before we intervened only had who had the most guns and were will to kill indescrimanately. We jumped into a boiling pot and it took a long time to change the peoples thinking. THey had to see that we were there to help them. When you have a candy bar being handed you in front and behind you is a gun at your head, who are you going to answer to? We do not have this in our country except where the gangs rule a part of a city.
    I could ramble on about this for a while, but back to Joel and others liken to him. It is very evident that he has been indoctrinated and very possibly a Muslim. That is okay, for this is a free nation so far. Who, Joel has redeemed you from your sins? MOhammad did not, he was as lost as a goat in hail storm. HE was taught the tenants of faith in our LORD Jesus CHrist and went to a place of insolation so the Koran says. THere he met with his familiar spirits and they told him a new religion. Those familiar spirits he chose over commiting his life to Jesus Christ. Yes, Jesus died on the Cross BUT HE was Resurrected from the Dead by the “Power” of Almighty God. That God is Jehovah, not Allah, not the same. God was and is and always will be Jesus’ Father. No lie or misconstrued statement will change that, no not ever.
    Oh, since when is being a lawyer a job. It was not long ago that being lawyer was a prevention from being a Representative in these United States or did you know that it was an Article in the Constitution? THere is much that being indoctrinated leaves out of knowing this Nation and what it stands for and against.
    Truman did not win two wars and was only the recipient on WWII. HE fired the General that could have brought “Victory” in Korea. We did not win in Korea but have left it in appeasement. Which under this Progressive Democrat reign of terror in this Nation will ultimately occur in Iraq and Afghanistan.
    I may or may not find this article again, but I do so much like to see so much diversity of comment. It shows me that we are a very Blessed Nation, “UNDER GOD”,for no other nation has such FREEDOM. Thank a Marine, A SOLDIER, A SAILOR, An AIRMAN, or A COAST GUARDSMAN for the Freedom to speak freely no matter how far off the truth you have gone or how straight is your arrow. God BLess America.

    • Daniel Prestriedge

      Amen David….and you can thank a Corpsman too….I’m confident you would pronounce it correctly, unlike some of the ivory league geniuses who have never been in so much as a playground fight in their lives….poor things.

      God Bless.

    • David Hall

      David H R, sir you must have misread somthing I wrote, I never was one
      of those left-wing nuts, that BLAMES BUSH FOR EVERYTHING! I voted for
      Bush, but didn’t agree with all his policies, especially going to war
      with Iraq, for the 2nd time, when his daddy didn’t FINISH THE JOB, the
      first time, for whatever the reason. Sixty miles outside, Baghdad, then pull-out, DUH? The point, I was trying to make with our brain-child buddy, Joel, was that any so-called conflict or war lost, was at
      the feet of our Commander-in-chief, not our American soldier. As far,
      as JESUS CHRIST is concerned, yes-sir, THE KING OF KINGS! AND SAVIOR
      FOR ALL WHO BELIEVE! As far as those who don’t, their ain’t nobody home in their head and heart, so what will be, will be! Knock the dust from your feet and go to the next one. By the way, them ain’t my words, there JESUS’ WORDS!

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    Thanks Daniel, were you a Corpsman? If so, thank you for being one of the few that are very “SPECIAL” people. So many have had their lives because of the very special compassion of men and now women that do and did such mighty acts of heroism in places and conditions that people do not understand. How you can save a mans life when he is covered in mud, clay, and blood and his only is a remarkable thing. And yes even sometimes an ear to hear when it is needed. THank you Corpsmen and Corpswomen (Nurses) for your gift unto a needy and grateful service fellow.

    • Joe H.

      David,
      nothing to add except AMEN my friend!!!

  • Thomas Anthony

    I sat in Federal Prison for counterfeiting US Currency. Allenwood Prison, where Chuck Colson and his boys were sent, outside of Philadelphia. While I was there, I met a Jewish Banker who boasted that he was a Banker at the Franklin Bank in New York, City, and that he embezzeled $75 Million which he sent to the Freedom Fighters in Israel. He allowed himself to be caught and sat at his time in Prison, for a white collar crime. He did his part for the cause of Israel. FYI

    I actually DID NOT counterfeit US Currency, only Federal Reserve notes. $5, $10, and $20 denominations. I printed $300 thousand worth.
    Being that it is FIAT money, I didn’t feel any shame, because today Obama, and Benake print mountains more than I ever dreamed of. I used to be an Photoengraver for many of the nations leading magazines, I new how to make plates.

    Naturally I have a keen interest in our Dollar, and how it gets printed. Read “The War on Gold” by Anthony Sutton. Also read: “The Law” by Friedrich Bastiat.

    Tid Bit: The most successful counterfeiter in American history plied his trade in Cincinnati, and lived in a house of ill repute, as a cover. The “Girls” of course kept him secret.

  • Yandle

    Joel, I will WASTE a couple of facts on you since you do not have the ability for comprehension of facts nor would you accept facts if you did have comprehension. You replied to a comment of mine in which I did not use the name JESUS but you replied with this ” Yandle, anytime anyone brings Jesus up, that person should be smacked down!”. Now that statement tells me a lot about you and what you think the U. S. Constitution and the Bill Of Rights. When you say “anytime anyone brings Jesus” that tells me you do not believe we should have “freedom of speech, or of the press” except for you of course. By your statement about Jesus, you show that you do not believe that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” therefore you do not believe in the freedom of religion. Your statement “that person should be smacked down” states you do not believe we should “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”. Constitutionalism itself is a product of Judeo-Christian theism. The answer to all your stupid questions is “WE THE PEOPLE of the United States” are willing to do that which keeps us free as our forefathers intended. Your statement “smacked down” shows YOU are a thug and a traitor who does not deserve the freedom others have died to give you. You are a coward with a big mouth when you can hide behind the internet like you did behind you mother’s skirt. If you are for the violence that you have shown here, why not make your proclamations on the street eye ball to eye ball with someone. If you went to the streets and survived it would be because of the tolerant our Judeo-Christian forefathers taught. THE WHOLE CONSTITUTION STANDS THE PRINCIPLES THAT YOU SHOW IN YOUR STATEMENT, “anytime anyone brings Jesus up, that person should be smacked down!”, THAT YOU ARE AGAINST!

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    Yandle, shall we say, shoulder to shoulder: ‘onward Christian soldiers’. I am liking the attitudes I am hearing from a lot of sources. “We the People”, we are the ones that will turn this country around from the hell bent progressives back to a Nation of men and women with standards of behavior, not standards of corruption. These behaviors do not include lying to get into office and if found should be ousted immediately. Why an immediate removal? Glad you asked, if they cannot be trusted to tell the truth about who they are to get into office, then how can they be trusted with the “”greatest Nation the world has ever seen or known”. We have allowed a spirit of lying and deception to get a foothold on this nation and now it is time to put an end to its corruptive power. That does not mean we take control over people but the insidious powers of the air that control people and make them believe lies.

    • Joe H.

      David H R Hall,
      If you mean controling the internet or the radio then here is where we part! the fairness doctrine is trying to do just that and it is very left leaning! Freedom of speech is one of the greatest freedoms we have in this country. Take that away and all the others fall with it!!! We must not let the liars and theives to make us so mad that we throw away our rights in anger! control and direct that anger and use it as a tool to correct not to destroy!!!

      • Joe H.

        David H R,
        when I read the insidious powers of the AIR that control people and make them believe lies I thought you meant the air waves of radio or TV or the internet!!!

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    Joe H., I am afraid that you did not understand what I was saying. I am not about controlling people that is witchcraft: the tenants of witchcraft are control, manipulation, and rebellion. I am speaking of spiritual control over the spirits of hell. THen we have only to deal with ignorance, indoctrination and a persons desire to go do their own thing, right or wrong. If a man is left to his own choices without outside influence there are many variables as to what he will choose. But without taking charge over the bad spiritual influences you can readily see where man is being taken. So we stand against spiritual wickedness in high places and take charge over them and we give mankind the opportunity to be all that he can be. The spiritual wickedness in high places does not mean Washington, DC but the influence that is in the heavenlies over the earth. You do know that Satan is the God over the earth and his reign of terror is soon to be over. God is God and there is no other. Satan tried to take over Jehovah’s throne and was cast down to the earth where he will reign until the Church takes his power to put under the feet of Jesus Christ. Oh, my, there is so much here to talk about but the taking away our freedoms as the founding fathers so established: not me. I am a Christian, was and still am at heart a Marine, and a good citizen of heavenly ways and of the United States of America.

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    THis may be of assistance to some of you. A man or woman without God is fair game to those that are crafty. Those that have yielded their souls to Christ Jesus as Savior and LORD have entered into the arena of conflict without the armor of God or the armor of light. Being mindful of spiritual matters in Matt 3:11 we find that there is more than the salvation of the soul and that is the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the baptism of Fire. In following into the wholeness of the Godhead bodily we are spiritual warriors at this point and we are not thrust onto the front lines where we will be slaughtered. We are to be taught and experience along as we learn the ways of spiritual warfare in our personal lives. We must be found ready in the eyes of Jehovah before we are released into the world to do warfare. THat is why the Church of the Living God is so fragmented. We have moved before approval and therefored we are not properly prepared to confront a “SPIRIT” as Satan is very much a spirit. Read in the book of Acts where the sons of Sciva tried to confront demons without going through the process aforementioned. They were beaten and their clothes torn off. THis is what has happened to the Church in the past. Now it is up to those that have a platform to change the direction of the Church to a stance of lets get it right and then proceed.

    • David Hall

      David H R Hall, Sir, very interesting and truth in your wisdom of the
      WORD, concerning the spiritual war, that is going on in our Nation,
      and the world for that matter, but you are now stepping into the
      MEAT of JESUS’ Words, (not to belittle any Christain) on this board,
      but many are still dranking the MILK of His Word, in other words, it’s
      too hard to handle! People have the tendency to take a step-back and
      wonder what you are writing about. As for the JESUS haters and unbelievers, they don’t have a glue and really don’t matter, because
      we win in the END! I enjoyed reading your post! Preach on!

  • http://sgtDHR David H R Hall

    Sir David, thank you, but anyone that is a believer can know all things. I do not know everything but what I find an interest in I study. THere are so many helps in finding out what the Word has to say about our every day living. Learning is the easy part, but applying it takes persistence and steadfastness. First I believe is not refusing the LORD in anything, thereby you witness unto yourself the goodness of Jehovah. Once you have the inner witness your walk is much easier, and your profession of faith has teeth. Walk upright and know who you are and who you serve and pray that He is God. THere are many who call themselves God, what I mean, the voices that one can hear in their hearts, that is why we must learn the ‘voice’ of our shepherd. It is his voice the sheep follow. Let the peace of God be your portion this day.

    Hello all. I see Obama as a traitor along with Michelle who are out to destroy the USA, our wonderful country of freedom. Read the Bible which says that Jews are God’s favored people. Additionally in Ezekial are passages relating to the Year 2012. Enter Year 2012 into Your Browser and see what is projected for the world.

    • L, USA

      na, the false prophet, Nastrodamus was a self-seeking antagonist. In ancient Israel, he would have been stoned. There are many asteroids coming into the vicenity of earth ahead but NASA can’t see all of the solar system at once yet and even when one or a comet is spotted in collision course with earth, there is only about 2-3 hours before impact. Not enough time to fully evacuate the very large geographical area of impact from a cataclismic disaster resultant size object, So NO warning is given. A warning would only cause chaos and pandimoniom within the affected (immediatly) population zone or region. The Bible is true, and makes every one who would try to dispute it or change it to suit their preferences, a liar. One should not make that mistake.
