Thank God They Don't Have Nuclear Weapons!

Because imagine the mischief they would cause if they did...

Iranian forces took control of a southern Iraqi oil well on a disputed section of the border on Friday, US and Iraqi officials told AFP.

"There has been no violence related to this incident and we trust this will be resolved through peaceful diplomacy between the governments of Iraq and Iran," a US military spokesman told AFP at Contingency Operating Base Adder, just outside the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah.
"The oil field is in disputed territory in between Iranian and Iraqi border forts," he said, adding that such incidents occur quite frequently.

Nice Obamaesque response there, Mr. Spokesman. Did you leave your balls on the plane, or is that just the president speaking through you?

An official of the state-owned South Oil Co in the southeastern city of Amara, and west of the field, said: "An Iranian force arrived at the field early this morning (Friday).
"It took control of Well 4 and raised the Iranian flag even though the well lies in Iraqi territory," the official added.

....the Iraqis are "very concerned about the Iranians pulling oil out of fields underneath Iraq."
Iran has prevented Iraqi oil officials from reaching the well in the past, an industry source said

The Iraqis have accused Iran of firing on their people, something Tehran has denied.

While Obama is in Copenhagen, fighting phantoms, a real enemy moves on us, testing our mettle, probing our response, all the while building a weapon darker and more evil than anything unleashed in half a century.

We will suffer, and history will judge...

Every family should have a “go to” person who can give answers to political and issue concerns, as suggested by Rush Limbaugh. Learning how means starting at the roots, the beginnings and differences between two sides of the same coin, which is all there is. One side is long established, where the few rule the many, irrespective of their labels. The other side is the newest, that of individual freedom and limited government. Why do many follow each side, and why the conflict between them? What side do current issues come from, such as health care, cap and trade as well as amnesty for illegal immigrants? What side of the coin most impacts the lives of your family, to whom you provide the answers? Call up for the roots of both sides and improve your understanding of the issues so you have the answers.
