Next round of Gazan slaughter on schedule:

Iran 'is intensifying efforts to support Hamas in Gaza'

Quote:
Iran has sent Hamas’s military wing tens of millions of dollars to help it rebuild the network of tunnels in Gaza destroyed by Israel’s invasion last summer, intelligence sources have told The Sunday Telegraph.
Tens of millions of dollars for an OFFENSIVE military campaign.

DURING negotiations on Iran's nuclear capability.

WHILE less useful Palestinians are being slaughtered a few hundred miles away.

Unfortunately it is necessary so that responsible powers finally take responsibility for their region. The region is full of incompetents include leaders in Iraq and Afganistan approved of by a George Jr administration. And other nations who are now learning from Obama what their responsiblities are. Saudi Arabia, in particular, was angry about this until the new King took over.

Naturally this new responsible nutjob monarchy has the advantage of American training and weapons, the bad guys mostly only get American weapons. War is as they say a racket.

It is so very nice to have a proxy. Keeps our kids out of the fray and frees them up to earn MBA's and get that nice job in banking or real estate.
