From the AP today 3/8/06: VIENNA, Austria — The United States on Wednesday was threatened with "harm and pain" by Iran for its role in bringing the Islamic republic to the U.N. Security Council over its nuclear program.
You know I think the rest of the world has forgotten who actually has the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet.
Is it just me or are these rouge countries getting a little to lippy, there was a time not to long ago when a statement out of Iran like that would have had B-52 bombers warming up on runways.
During WW2 this country obliterated it's enemies, there was no worry of "collateral damage" if there was resistence from a city, wipe the city off the planet. Odds are the next city would be much more compliant.
Unfortunately our government is too worried about it's public image then our security. Hey if one dead baby is shown on the news and all the liberals have a fit about it, and poll numbers dip, well we can't have that now can we?
Meanwhile Iran a country with no such moral apprehension, builds nukes and openly threatens us.
It's time to take the velvet gloves off.
