Wonder if Obama has the cojones to hold them off.

4. They're talking about bombing them into submission

After the Iraq clusterfuck, the Neocon nation-building type war has gone out of fashion. This is more of a Henry Kissinger type of solution.

10. "PNAC"?

I don't believe Obama would support taking military action in Iran, and ALL of his top advisers - military and civilian - are opposed (as I understand it). I'm "assuming" he will do the sane thing and resist the PUBLIC and NEO-CON pressures to go in?

What the H is wrong with the majority of Americans who say, according to polling, that they want to attack Iran? This, immediately after the downturn in support for our junket in Iraq?

Honestly, I attribute these ridiculous dangerous attitudes to the defunding of public education: our populace seems to be uneducated, unaware, ignorant, and to have very poor judgment, much less memory! The rest of the world scorns these attitudes in us.

11. That is my hope as well.

PNAC = http://www.newamericancentury.org/

"Think tank" (if you want to call it that) that dreamed up the Bush Doctrine of preemptive war. In places where oil exists, that is.
