Wait there Iran, North Korea and its missiles are coming to help you! LOL! Personally, I think Iran should lay low and close its mouth. Israel can kick its arse.

The teabagger congress could always cut the funding.
The House last June found itself in the paradoxical position of voting to defeat a resolution authorizing Obama to use force in Libya -- but also defeating a proposal to cut off funding for the operation. In effect, the House said it would keep paying for a war it did not authorize.

Meanwhile Sen. John McCain, R- Ariz., called this week for air strikes on Syria. And Panetta said Wednesday “potential military options, if necessary” are being considered by the Obama administration against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R- S.C., a believer in robust presidential war-making powers, said,“I think the president could deploy military force in this situation without an authorization from Congress.

The US House of Representatives Defense Appropriations Subcommittee yesterday approved almost $1 billion for Israel's anti-missile defense programs - the Arrow 3, upgrading the current Arrow system, David's Sling, and Iron Dome. The total appropriation is the highest ever approved for the four programs, and reflects not only US Representatives' consistent support for Israel, but also rising concern about the Israel-Iran confrontation, which is liable to expose Israel to missile strikes from Iran, Hizbullah, and Hamas.
The House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee is due to vote on the draft bill today, which will include $948,736,000 for Israel's missile defense programs for the 2013 fiscal year, which begins in October. This money is separate from the $3.1 billion in annual military aid for Israel for 2013. If the proposal passes, Israel will receive a record total of $4 billion in military aid in the next fiscal year.

When Obama went into Libya, and got involved, the GOP and John McCain complained. They tried to make a big fuss about it. Now they are complaining about Syria. They lose all credibility. They merely want to say and do the opposite of anything or everything regarding Pres. Obama. Obama should just say we need to wait until we have a clear cut plan. We should not move in haste. Did anyone listen to what Gen. Wesley Clark said the other night on T.V.? We need to have a GOOD plan for the future first. The man knows strategy.

Romney backed solar firm goes belly-up:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0612/770...

Konarka Technologies, which announced Friday it had filed for bankruptcy protection with plans to lay off more than 80 workers and liquidate its assets.

In January 2003, just less than three weeks into his term as governor, Romney handed a check to Konarka executives during a news conference that also involved giving out subsidies to four other renewable energy companies. One of the other winners announced that day — Evergreen Solar — has already undercut Romney's Solyndra attacks by filing last year for bankruptcy protection.

rugby leadership and business sense.....hahahahahahahaha

What a LIE. It goes under 10 years later and it's Romney's fault. What a distortion........but after all, that's all you have left.

Is this 'diplomatic' talk saying that the Iranians already have a nuke or two ... and that they are willing for the country to be paved with green glass beads to get revenge for an Israeli attack.

As Scary said both Israel and Iran will become dust ...
Is the US is better off without them?

hahaha Iran will do NOTHING. Why do I say that you might ask? It's real simple...because by the time their savage asses realized what hit them their nuke program they say they don't have will be nothing more than smoking craters in the ground which will also be the burial site (and crematory) for the ragheads that were too stupid to listen and 86 their plan like they were told a long time ago.

The only lightning we'll be seeing is the same lightning we always see out of these fuckers...lightning out their savage mouths and asses and no action...wow what a fireworks display that is.

These pissants really make me laugh. Their bullshit is absolutely laughable. They are nothing...Israel is the bell which tolls their doom, and if they had a brain cell one, they'd learn to keep their mouths shut. Israel outclasses these nuts in every aspect of Military Domination. They could erase these savages in the blink of an eye.

A super-stealthy warship that could underpin the U.S. navy's China strategy will be able to sneak up on coastlines virtually undetected and pound targets with electromagnetic "railguns" right out of a sci-fi movie.

But at more than $3 billion a pop, critics say the new DDG-1000 destroyer sucks away funds that could be better used to bolster a thinly stretched conventional fleet. One outspoken admiral in China has scoffed that all it would take to sink the high-tech American ship is an armada of explosive-laden fishing boats.

With the first of the new ships set to be delivered in 2014, the stealth destroyer is being heavily promoted by the Pentagon as the most advanced destroyer in history — a silver bullet of stealth. It has been called a perfect fit for what Washington now considers the most strategically important region in the world — Asia and the Pacific.
