By claiming that we are bombing, when we are not, old-cold is playing the game of telephone irresponsibly and you are colluding. Frankly, if "Morning Joe" did say this outright, I think they are drinking their morning joe via a colonic and deserve to be censored by the public. When news can be confused with fiction by the audience, then there is no accountability by either the media or the government.

Either journalism has being replaced by Ren and Stimpy more quickly than I have realized, or old-cold isn't very good at getting facts straight.
I did not say " we" are bombing, yet. I DID give my source , and , thats more than a lot of people do. Sorry , I did not explain better , my opening statement. Maybe someone else who heard what I did , this morning , will respond. I am not here to spread false statements . I know this issue is a hot button , the consequences would be devastating to say the least.

Apologies to you, old-cold. I saw the quote of your question and thought the quote was yours. Senior moment.

Darstar, your original post -
"Well folks , heard the latest news this morning ? Bush is in the process of bombing Iran , for real !....... Oil will be 300.00 quick if this happens , like Cheney and Lieberman want.. Iran will close the straights ........World war III , is just around the corner.......Gold will be 2500.00...to the Moon !!"

Now you say:
" I did not say " we" are bombing, yet. I DID give my source , and , thats more than a lot of people do. Sorry , I did not explain better , my opening statement. Maybe someone else who heard what I did , this morning , will respond. I am not here to spread false statements . I know this issue is a hot button , the consequences would be devastating to say the least."

Please use some indicator, like a smiley, when you intend satire or posit a hypothetical situation. Without them you come off sounding serious or deluded. For example:

"Bush is in the process of bombing Iran " and then "I did not say " we" are bombing, yet."
Are you a professional politician, or what? Are we to imply that Bush is PERSONALLY flying over and bombing Iran? What a can-do guy. I thought he was a reserve fighter pilot and not a bomber pilot.

And yeah, the Ren and Stimpy News Hour could be an improvement.
