Obama: Does Iran smell blood in the water?
According to Reuters in Iran test-fires new missile near Iraq: state media, along with Russia now placing missiles along the border against Poland, it seems both Iran's Mad Jad and Russia have started the saber rattling accompanied with action. Talk about the honeymoon being over! Our new President-elect Obama will go into office with plenty on his/our plate come January 20th. Of course, I can't prove it, but I don't think the "financial crisis" just happened "by accident" either. Seems we'll have plenty to talk about in those "diplomatic" talks that are going to take place. More "shuttle diplomacy", anyone. But as President-elect Obama said and Sean Hannity never tires of telling us Obama said, "Iran is just a tiny country, no threat to us." And so it begins. President George W. Bush is unlikely to take any action unless we or our allies are directly attacked and I can't see any terrorist - foreign or domestic with two IQ points to rub together - taking on President George W. Bush even with so few days remaining in his presidency. Why attack us when they can get what they want by rattling a few sabers? We are entering dangerous times. Unfortunately, the last Democrat to understand finances seems to have been JFK. The rest have soaked us and plan to do so again. They (the Dems) just don't seem to understand that lower taxes, especially on job producers, equals more jobs and more people paying taxes. However, increased taxes may well be shaping up to be one of our least worries. On diplomatic talks, especially with folks who hate you and want to dominate the world - Mad Jad comes to mind - anyone remember Neville Chamberlain?
