29. Bombing. Not invasion, bombing. Setting the stage for
Edited on Wed Jul-11-07 04:47 PM by Spearman87
an invasion is pointless without the troops to do it. And we don't have them. But don't be shocked if we attack some supposed terrorist training camps or IED-related equipment stocks.

Or even heaven-forbid, an all-out bombing of Iran's nuclear program related facilities. But I don't think we are stupid enough to go that far......
