Quotation for Today: More Middle East Entanglements: Why?

The quoted comments cited in this post refer again to ultimatums and force with respect to another Muslim nation in the Middle East.

"Iran's leaders should understand that I do not have a policy of containment; I have a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon."
Barack Obama, President of the United States

Perhaps we will be told why Americans should continue to sacrifice their national well-being for foreign entanglements in the Middle East.

More importantly, the comments from the Republicans presidential wannabes and their fellow party leaders are far more bellicose than President Obama's comments; and Congress is the worst of all.

Meanwhile, the true military threat to the United States continues to grow (see related information).
