Sure ... Tommy your head is so far up O's ass you would know what he had for dinner last night. Run along. Your boorish behavior is tiresome. Oh, and in case you were too ignorant to know this - Using yourself as a reference all the time is tiring, ineffective at convincing anyone of anything and ridiculous.

Mr Whiner is so extremist as to not even know what a bluff is? Rather than admit to ignorance, he now resorts to what he understands - cheapshots and insults. Posting profanity and ignorance proves intelligence.

This thing called a bluff perplexes him. Limbaugh did not tell him what it is.

Two questions:

1) If Obama was so inclined in attacking Syria, why did he cancel the weapon shipments to rebels earlier this year when there was little pushback?

2) If Obama wanted to attack Syria, why did he wait for congress approval (8 - 10 day wait) when he could have just attacked right after the allegations?

I think/hope it was the first time I did that, and I hate to see it perpetuated.

I apologize to all involved.

You did not start it. He has directed cheapshots at many in multiple threads for some weeks now.

That moment was when an alternative appeared. And he jumped at it.

I'll just console myself reading that thread in which Clodfobble talks about getting drunk and naked.

Oh, see now, you do care after all.

Incognito crossed the line. He hadn't learned to be the one who draws the lines and lets others cross them before he unleashes and he hadn't learned not to kick someone when they're down (even if they're provoking him). He knows better now. Perhaps Incognito will start being me.

I haven't even been back for week you friggin tool.
Cheapshots were offered toward TWO (2) people. One in return and another at you
because you're a pompous asshole. (<--- not a cheap shot, just a fact borne out of YEARS of reading your drivel.)

Incognito. An elephant in the room that nobody sees and best to not slight. Because what is not seen is also too damn big to offend. Incognito.

I'm not up to date on Cheney, but his black and white view on Iran's nuclear facilities, has merit. Saudi's have also been urging us to wipe out the nuclear facilities in Iran (as we learned from the stolen state dept. communications).

We have been jawing, and talking, and yakking and making the average joe in Iran, hate us. We've destroyed their economy with sanctions high and low- but their nuclear program has only increased by several thousand more centrifuges.

Since we've done nothing, Israel has done nothing, and the Saudi's feel threatened by a nuclear (shiite) Iran, so THEY have gone to Pakistan and are now purchasing nuclear weapons, from them.

So it looks like our inaction, has only caused a further spread of nuclear facilities and arms, in the Middle East.

There is a lot of sense in what you say, but despite your slanted view about Cheney, (and I'm not saying he's right on any matter, because I didn't hear the interview), we won't know which course of action was the best one to take, for decades. All we know right now, is:

1) Iran is still enlarging it's nuclear enrichment program, even with stringent sanctions in place, for several years now.

2) Still holding large "Death to America" rallies, as you might expect in Iran.

3) The Saudi's have felt threatened enough by Iran, to move ahead with buying nuclear weapons, from Pakistan.

4) Caused an obvious rift with Israel. Not a lasting rift, but it is significant, nonetheless.

So Obama's handling of the situation, has so far gone 0 for 4 in it's handling of the situation. Hard to call that a success.
