    From your keyboard to God’s ears, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

    There is so much wishful thinking on this Blog, when have Dictatorships ever done the peaceful thing? The Iranian Regime has been our enemy for over 30 years; they have violated international diplomatic immunity, funded Hezbollah’s attacks on US personnel, and supplied Explosively Formed Projectile Mines to Terrorists for attacks on US personnel. The only way there‘ll ever be peace is for there to be a Regime change in Iran. Have sanctions ever worked on a Dictatorship? The Answer is NO; they have never worked on a Dictatorship.

    It is long past time that the US should have dealt with these Barbarians. We should make an example of them, by taking the attributes of civilization (which they have had no part in developing), away from them. We should bomb their entire soft target energy industry, and put all Iranians “On Foot and In the Dark”. This could be done with a minimal loss of life and without US boots on the ground. Without oil to sell, the Regime would have no money to fund terrorists and buy political support. Without fuel their military would be immobilized, and logistically unsustainable. It is said that “Armies march on their Bellies” and that is even truer today, than it was when coined. Without electricity there will be no communications, no lights, and no industry.

    By making such a strategically elegant example of the uncivilized Iran, which has been disrespecting America for so long, all the other uncivilized nations will be struck with fear, and a desire to avoid the same fate.

    Obama cares about nothing but his Blue Enviro-Social Model.
