Not Bothering With Redlines for Iran

One of my friends unearthed an interesting article concluding Obama really has no intention of stopping Iran's nuclear program

To which Comrade Karla responded:  

Sounds about right.  Anything we get involved in will be by accident or because somebody else takes the initiative.  He’s far too busy destroying our economy to tend to silly trifles like foreign policy.

  1. The Saudis bankrolled 9/11 and the Israelis had prior knowledge of the attack, but we are supposed to be worried about Iran?

  2. In a word: Yes.

    I haven't heard about the Israelis having definitive knowledge of the attack. True 15 out of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi--and they probably had connections within the government/royal family--but specifics remain muddled.

    But who knew what & when inside Israel, along with who's bankrolling whom in Saudi Arabia, doesn't mean we should ignore Iran:

    1. Individual Saudis bankrolled the 9/11 attacks--bin Laden being from a millionaire family. The Saudi government is reprehensible, but they are not stupid. As for Israeli pre-knowledge, that's just more good old fashioned anti-semitic Jewish conspiracy nonsense.

      Frankly, I'm amazed it has hung on for as long as it has, but the bizarre belief that the Jews are behind everything, despite sounding like an Onion article, has a tradition going back at least to the 19th century.

      Sad that there are those still believing such claptrap.
