Bring back the Shaw!!!

Doesn't the experience with North Korea and Libya teach these f*ckwits anything. Diplomacy works if you have a committment to it. Seems like the only thing the Bushies are committed to is being pricks.
But,is any other country investing in the new small Iran war publically? Also,we just need to go in & get some oil/fuel & leave quickly,all covert n all.
What are we going to do? Pump a few hundred gallons to try and help with gas prices?
No,load up an oil tanker ship moron!
Section from this article:
Traders were digesting reported comments from the commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, who warned that if his country is attacked, Tehran would strike back by barraging Israel with missiles. In a report published Saturday in the conservative Jam-e-Jam newspaper, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said that if Iran were provoked, it would also move to control a key oil passageway in the Gulf.
Iran is the world's fourth-largest oil exporter and about 60 percent of the world's oil passes through the strategic Strait of Hormuz.
The report comes after the disclosure of a recent Israeli military exercise over the Mediterranean Sea that was seen as sending a message to Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions.
That's what you get when you start trading oil in Euros. Look what happened to Iraq. Anybody else want to try Euros?
Most sources cite it as 20% of the world's oil...
This sounds like a bunch of drivel (from both Jafari and internet news outlets). Although I'm eager to hear how his knowledge of asymmetric warfare will work on water. Operation Praying Mantis and all... Doing so would also piss off the UN and the UAE.
How exactly does one discover an escalation in covert operations? It's not like the spooks are dumb enough to talk to Seymour ****ing Hersh...
Isnt that kind of like getting kicked in the nuts and then turning to the person next to you and kicking them in the nuts?
I'd trust Reuters over wikipedia on this one...
I was going off the Washington Post and Newsbox, but I'm willing to concede 40%. 60 seems very high...
It's a good thing Obama is a Muslim.
Shucks, it'll work out well enough for Bush and Cheney..see what their other MidEast adventure has led to?....
Iraq throws open door to foreign oil firms
You mean it wasn't for oil? Wow, that changes things.
You realize how much money the US is pouring into Israel to make sure that they can keep their status as a big **** you to the rest of the Arab world, right? And do you realize how much influence Israel has over our government?
No, I dont think anyone here has ever thought that way before. Sounds radical, please enlighten us...
(Sarcasm font ON)
This morning as I was walking out the door for work, the wife had The Today show on and Matt Lauer was talking to some White House talking head correspondent about Bin Laden:
Lauer: "So the search for Obama is now being curtailed? I mean Osama...heh..."
The Jews have it.
I'm fully aware, and it's one of things I hate about our foreign policy...unconditional support of Isreal.
I was watching Sportscenter a couple weeks ago and the anchor referred to Obama as Osama... pretty great.
Im sure people want to read a ton into it every time it happens, (like when Mitt Romney did it) but the names are pretty similar and pretty newsworthy.
There is this big van parked where I go to school that has "Fred Thompson 08" window tint....like covering the entire rear window, and a bumper sticker that says something about "Osama Bin Bama" or some such crap. I bet he's angry these days.
there is a difference between antisemitism and anti-Israel.
Ah, I thought your analogy was implying that by bombing Israel they were just bombing a random neighbor. Instead of kicking your neighbor in the balls, it would be like kicking the guy's daughter.
I always love to watch the Family Guy episode where the beginning is the making of an Osama tape...
"Oh...hahahaha!! Khalid...you doofus...this guy...this guy...I'm just going to wear these big fake sunglasses for the entire video...death to Amer....ahahahaha!! Stop making those faces!!"
At this point I would like to point out that this thread has not received the "Falcon Punch" tag as yet...
This should be remedied as soon as possible.
palcon funch....nicely played.
If I am not mistaken , the diplomacy with Libya was a Squadroon of F-111s
^^ Kills me every time.
Mister "I can't do a suicide bombing because I'm sick"...
Their reply was a bomb in a Pan-Am 747 over Scotland. We were all coming out ahead going that route.:huh:
I can't understand why these obvious foreign policy success stories like Libya and North Korea aren't being hyped more by the Bushies. I guess nothing disguises your miniscule knob size more than putting a dirty great guided missile up some-ones back passage.
The Iranians insulted the administration's penis size.
I think you'll find the bombing over Scotland came first.
there is a lot of truth in that statement
If by F-111 you were referring to the raid on Tripoli, then that was '86, Lockerbie was '89 (edit-Dec '88). The raid on Tripoli was in retaliation for the bombing of the Berlin disco which was in retaliation for......you can see the point I'm making here.
"El Dorado" diplomacy works if your opponent knows (or cares) that you will carry out a full attack. I don't think there was any doubt in Ghaddafi's mind that Reagan would invade Libya if he was pushed to that point, hence why he hired Abu Nidal to carry out subsequent attacks. Plausible deniability.
On the other hand, if you look at Operations Desert Fox, Desert Strike, and Infinite Reach had no effect on our opponents. They knew we were unwilling to go the full measure.
If anything we're using Gunboat diplomacy now with our carriers in the Strait. Of course, that didn't work in China, either...
