It would be the strategic thing to do. Maybe that is what was agreed to, so that Israel would wait.

Russian won't like that, they are going to see that as an assault on their warm water port in Tartus.

All the fun stops when you wake up the Bear.

Newt does seem to have that "nuclear winter" be very afraid in your

I wish King would have asked each candidate how they would pay
for another war.

Paul is the only one that addressed the economic impact of one.

Hey, Mitt has a silly sounding first name, let's tease him about it!

Hey, George W Bush has a cooler personality than Al Bore...that is why you should vote for Bush!

Kind of, personality helped Clinton and when Clinton had a republican congress the U.S was doing pretty well. Certainly alot better than the past 12 years. I didn't vote for Bush or Bore I wasted my vote in that election on Nader.

Here's the funny part about that. It probably draws "not-Romney" votes away from Santorum and to Newter. This likely results in Romney winning Arizona (that was probably already locked up anyways) and Michigan. Should be interesting to Newt will get a strong enough showing to restore his hope a bit and stay in the race.

Funny how a relatively crappy showing by both front-runners translates, eh?

Ron Paul: Sanctions Against Iran Are an ‘Act of War’ - ABC News

Ron Paul says sanctions are an act of war. So how would Ron Paul use diplomacy to stop Iran from getting nukes? $$$$ bribes? It seems like he is fine with Iran getting nukes when he says, “I think the solution is to do a lot less a lot sooner, and mind our own business, and we wouldn’t have this threat of another war.” Seriously, I am curious.

Christ almighty the 3 stooges are freaking nuts.
This is just one in the laundry list of reasons why no one in their right mind would support the GOP.

Gergen on CNN: "It was a net negative for Republicans tonight because they talked about congressional process, earmarks, etc., and didn't focus on distinctions between them and President Obama."

Ron Paul = The U.S. Constitution.

Gloria Borger on CNN: They all did what they had to do tonight. They each played to type.

Ari Fleischer on CNN: Santorum didn't rise to the occassion, and that will hurt him in the coming primaries.

I loved when he said..(paraphrasing) well lets try it a third time, but from a financial perspective...the other two don't seem to resonate as well, but maybe the fact that we can't afford it would get more support.
It's what brought the Soviets down, why do we think it won't take us down.
