I'm willing to wait and see what happens between now and the next Iranian election...willing to bet that Monkeymanijad doesn't get re-elected. If the next guy is even more nutso than him, well, I guess we have some decisions to make...

Our actions in regard to Iran are encouraging them to choose such a path.

Saddam was Shiite. The Shiite muslims are the ones who are killing us. They are using weapons from Saudi Arabia.

The Iranians are Sunni. They don't give weapons to the Shiites. They sell weapons to other Sunnis, true. The Sunnis and Shiites might have a common enemy right now, but they're not exactly in love with each other.

I think the Iran supplying Shiite story is... you know.

^^^Other way around (shiite and sunni reversed), so yes, Iran is supplying shiite weapons, but most American deaths are at the hands of sunnis.

Iraq is a cultural/religious clusterfuck and oil prices keep rising while our defecit keeps hitting new record highs. Standard of living keeps decreasing for the majority, debt increases, savings are at an all time low since the Great Depression, and the USA is still vulnerable to terrorist attacks. Regardless of right or left the country seems headed in the wrong direction just looking at some of the most basic signs.

Ya, you're right as usual, the 16th Street crew has that in their back pocket.
You might recall that the article stated that there was one COMPLETED bomb, and components for may more.

Apparently it's news to you ............ You're stating the obvious, but the fact that it is happening on a more consistant basis tends to indicate something. Maybe it doesn't fit into your ideas of what's going on over there, but it would appear that the people with some common sense have had enough of the radicals on both sides.......
