  1. Sad, but true. The U.S. military has been reduced to pre-World War II size. Yes, but now we can fund food stamps and other “feel good” programs. But, what will happen when we need the military? I don’t have a good feeling about this.

    The Clintons declared a peace dividend, and then they bought cheap unarmored vehicles. We paid a high price in Afghanistan and Iran for that.

    Now, it seems that Obama and the Europeans have again thrown Israel under the bus. They avoided announcing the agreement on April 1st, fools’ day. Do they actually believe that Iran will abide by the agreement?

    And just who do they think will be the recipient of the Iranian bomb? A nuclear weapon laid on Tel Aviv will take out Ramallah, Jerusalem, Amman, Gaza, the west bank, not to mention the Al Asqa mosque. Damascus, Cairo and Beirut would all suffer from the fallout.

    A nuclear weapon is a totally inappropriate tool for such a small theater of war. No, I suspect the mushroom cloud will appear over New York City, Washington or Los Angeles.

    At least those folks will die happy with their food stamps.

    By the way, 72 years ago on April Fools Day, Mexico declared war on the Japanese Empire.

    1. Señor Gill: I don’t have a good feeling about it either.

      As for Mexico declaring war on Japan, few people realize it was the turning point in that conflict. Japan knew it had no chance against Mexico.

  2. Why is Iran building missile bases in Venezuela? Just who will they be firing them at? Cuba, Jamaica, no, I suspect it will be us.

    The Japanese had four months for their agents to do their stuff in Mexico. It took a lot of arm twisting to get a declaration of war.

    1. Señor Gill: Appears that everybody is not in agreement with the German report that Iran is building missiles in Venezuela, but who knows? We live in a world of surprises. For instance, Barry winning re-election!
