And who could blame them (Israel) for handling it their own way.

You’re gonna see a stable government in Iraq that is actually movin’ toward a representative government. I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months, three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed, how they have been deciding to use the political process, rather than guns, to settle their differences.”

Interesting in light of now, the Mideast expert talking heads are saying the failure is due to the political process was not working.

First there was "Shoeless Joe" the famous ball player, now we have "Clueless Joe". Not only is obummer making Jimmy Carter happy, clueless Joe is making Dan Quale smile too. They mocked Dan for not being able to spell potato, now we have a potato head for a VP. :D

I'm taking bets on the coat of HO this winter after our "A" team has worked the problem this summer. Got coal...

Actually, if O has half a brain (and that is a BIG if) the play is to wring our hands and do absolutely nothing. It's sad for the Iraqi vets but best for us in the long term. Let them expend their energy fighting each other (yet again one more time). It gives them less time to be hating us. A few airstrikes will just pi$$ everyone off more and not win anything extra.

Send in Kerry that should ensure absolutely nothing gets done and that happens to be good here. Write some stern letters and draw some red lines somewhere. Perhaps those lines should be pink or orange. Hey, total incompetency could actually work here. Let's complete the team make Hillary a special envoy or something. Drop all the millions of unsold Hillary books on them that should bore them to death no problem. As a last resort if things get violent send in clueless Joe with his shotgun. Those who stir the $hitpot should get to lick the spoon.

I believe President Obama is golfing this weekend as our Embassy in Baghdad begins to flee Iraq.

That will probably be Hillary's Presidential campaign slogan, and the masses will eat it up. A winning slogan for sure. It represents our nation pretty well, don't you think?

There will even be derivations on it, such as: Ask not what your country can do to you, what difference does it make. Give me liberty or give me death, what difference does it make. The buck stops here, what difference does it make. That government is best which governs the least, but what difference does it make. In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem, but what difference does it make.

Now it seems to be "don't let a crisis go to waste"
