    That's all true enough JD but the GOP disagrees, so . . .

    Seems to me there should be a big discussion going about this development on a Christian message board like this.

    Christians are being persecuted and murdered in every country Washington and it's Saudi BFF allies are "liberating".

    Wonder why there isn't? Maybe the reality that Washington and Wall Street are in bed with state sponsors of terrorism is causing an acute condition of cognitive dissonance amongst the cheerleaders of foreign military interventionism and the "war on terror".

    What do you think JD?

    Where's all the neocons to defend their military adventurism now? Where's all the stalwart defenders of the "war on terror" to defend their interventionist policy and their trustworthy middle eastern allies?

    I imagine they're to busy trying to whip up public opinion in favor of another military adventure in Iran to bother looking at what their past military adventures have wrought.

    Yep, just as I suspected.

    Oh wait I just found some more of them in congress working hard in a bipartisan fashion to give Israel the power to decide when America should go to war and who it should make war on!

    The American people should know that pending right now in Congress is a bipartisan bill that would virtually commit the United States to go to war against Iran if Israel attacks the Islamic Republic. “The bill outsources any decision about resort to military action to the government of Israel,”

    Columbia University Iran expert Gary Sick wrote to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in protest, one of the bill’s principal sponsors.


    The mind boggles at the thought that Congress would let a foreign government decide when America goes to war, so here is the language (PDF):

    Why don't we just stop messing around and arguing about who's foreign policy is who's and just make Benjamin Netanyahu POTUS and put the Saudi Royal family in charge of the State Dept? But why stop there why not appoint Abu Muhammad Al-Joulani Secretary Of Defense?

    Looks like Muslim persecution of Christians doesn't rate a discussion amongst Christians here.
