Here’s a view of all the nations neocon Senator John McCain has called the U.S. government to attack
If there is one thing that we have seen, it’s that this presidency has been exemplified by not providing the kind of clarity of vision that a leader must provide if in fact they want followers. So, if you don’t decide what your mission is, where you’re going, and give people confidence that you will go there and not back off and not move aside you’re not going to get any followers.
Yes, Mr. President, it is about Islam!
And I believe if you have an evil of an order of this magnitude, you take it seriously. You declare war on it, you don’t dance around it. Just like the Islamic State has declared war on the United States of America.
You kill their leader, you kill their councils, you kill their army until they wave the white flag of surrender. That’s how you win a war!
The only thing that will make a difference is boots on the ground. Kurdish boots! Nobody’s asking for Americans. Just fly in the weapons!
The Senate on Friday rushed through a $225 million bill to replenish Israel’s missile defense system, and House approval was expected in the final hours before lawmakers began a summer break.Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) had blocked the quarter billion dollar supplemental gift to Israel previously, but when he was provided a menu of other programs that could be cut to make way for additional military aid to Israel he dropped his objections paving the way for the package to pass.
First, our problems with Iran go way beyond the nuclear deal. If we could wave a magic wand and cause the entire nuclear project to disappear, we would still have to contend with a radical Islamist regime that has declared war on us, and is waging it from the Middle East to South America.Isn’t that an odd statement?
He [Brent Scowcroft] fears that if we attack Iraq ‘I think we could have an explosion in the Middle East. It could turn the whole region into a cauldron and destroy the War on Terror.’
One can only hope that we turn the region into a cauldron, and faster, please. If ever there were a region that richly deserved being cauldronized, it is the Middle East today. If we wage the war effectively, we will bring down the terror regimes in Iraq, Iran, and Syria, and either bring down the Saudi monarchy or force it to abandon its global assembly line to indoctrinate young terrorists. That’s our mission in the war against terror.
