    The other thread is on page three, and I don't want anyone to miss this.....



    Watching the pundits discuss our historic meeting with Iran, you would have mostly heard despair at the notion that we have no leverage in these talks, and so therefor why would Iran give on anything? Why would they stop waging war against us in iraq if they have nothing to fear? To all the experts in the media, the whole thing seemed like some grand puzzlement. Was it just an attempt to appease the administration’s domestic critics who have been chiding it for not engaging in diplomacy ( a vaguery if there ever was one ) with the world’s top terrorist? No one you heard from could really quite grasp what was going on.
    For some reason, no one told you that just 5 days before Monday’s talks, an entire floating army, with nearly 20,000 men, comprising the world’s largest naval strike force, led by the USS Nimitz and the USS Stennis, and also comprising the largest U.S. Naval armada in the Persian Gulf since 2003, came floating up unnanounced through the Straight of Hormuz, and rested right on Iran’s back doorstep, guns pointed at them. The demonstration of leverage was clear. And it also came on the exact date of the expiration of the 60 day grace period the U.N. had granted Iran.
    And it came just a few weeks after Vice President Dick Cheney had swept through the region and delivered a very clear and pointed message to the Saudi King Abdullah and others: George Bush has unequivocally decided to attack Iran’s nuclear, military and economic infrastructure if they do not abandon their drive for military nuclear capability. Plain and simple. Iran heard the message as well, and although a lack of leverage may seem clear to America’s retired military tv talking heads, it is not so clear to the government in Tehran.
    The message to both Iran and Syria is that if the talks in Baghdad fail, the military option is ready to go.....

    ......Oh, and preparations are under way for the construction of new U.S. airbases in Kurdistan, so we are not, under any circumstances, giving up a firmbase posture throughout Iraq......

    Perhaps we was too hard on our brother Mr. Poles. This visit may have been very effective in creating peace in the mideast.

    Like Teddy Roosevelt said, "Speak softly and carry a big stick." Or that definition of diplomacy...the ability to say "Nice doggy" until you can grab a rock.

    But, we already grabbed Iraq and it seems to have only made the doggy madder.

    Now, I'll just say Iran away from this thread before people started pelting me with Iraqs.:tonofbricks:

    Now, stop that joking. This is a Syria's topic. The threat of terrorism Israel.

    Now, if I could only think of one for Turkmenistan.:laugh:

    Wait, I got it, someone once told me that "Turk-men-is-tan", and I replied, "They is?" (Okay, that one was a little corny.):laugh:
