So you think they're complete idiots? GW maybe , but Cheney? They would have to be morons to not understand the likelihood of this outcome.

So you are saying Dick wanted to give control of the Iraqi oil fields to the Iranians? Why?

The biggest concentration of them in the USA seems to be around Dearborn and Detroit and surrounding areas. Their culture lives on, handed down from one generation to the next, from grocery store to grocery store

I would bet if we go to war with Iran, I won't have a farm at all. If we leave them well alone, I have a much better chance.

Remember, the war in the ME is not about us. We have no business there. It is a war between the Jews and the Arabs.

I would bet the farm if we pull out and stay out of their businesses, in ten years they would even give us their oil willingly.

That is exactly what I have been saying but you know the politically correct crowd here thinks I work for David Duke or something.
I say fkem all if they want to fleece us. Israel is a big boy now so if those Arab "savages" attack, it should be able to defend itself. I mean all of those billions to arm Israel must have gone for that, right? Do we have to send our kids to be killed too so we are not labled all sorts of names too?
