Someone please explain to me exactly why the Mullahs of Iran are still alive. We should have killed them back in '83 when they sent their boys to blow up the Marines in Beirut. We should have killed them when they sent their boys to blow up the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia.
We should have killed them a hundred times over for shipping those EFP bombs into Iraq, yet they still breathe air that decent people may need someday. And now they send their boys to slaughter unarmed citizens of their own country.
So, what does it take? After the unpleasantness of 1939-1945 we swore "never again". Yet it keeps happening, again and again. Seems like the rules could be made a little simpler and easier to understand. How about Rule number one: Kill unarmed citizens and we kill you. Rule number two: Sneak weapons and such into a country where there is no declared state of war, we kill you. Rule number three: Bomb people without a declared state of war, we kill you.
Instead we just let these murderous thugs get more and more powerful. I know, lets do it like we did with the Chinese, let them murder their people and let's help them get their missiles to fly. That will show them we mean no harm! Meanwhile a small voice on a mostly unread blog says just because we mean them no harm does not mean they mean us no harm.
I've said this before, just because we have no interest in war does not mean that war has no interest in us.
Update: You want to stop this nonsense? Put in a world wide Second Amendment. Meanwhile make it a world crime to use tanks and armored vehicles internally. Make it a world crime to have the military personal weapons unavailable to the citizens. Yeah, we might lose a few more politicians that way but politicians are a renewable resource. They breed like flies. We lost two Kennedys in five years but we still have those vermin all over. and the best of that family was the bootlegger/Nazi sympathizer.
I submit a new world order, one where the governments are afraid of the people, not the other way around.
