Here’s something to contemplate as the US seeks to impose ever tougher sanctions on Iran.
In 1936 or so Japan was becoming more and more aggressive in seeking resources for its growing economy. The powers that be in the world sought to keep Japan confined to its own little corner of the Pacific and we all know how that turned out.
In the case of Iran we are reversing the situation, keeping Iran from exploiting its natural resource, oil. Is there a possibility of a similar reaction from them that Japan chose?
While I have no doubts about the worlds ability to handle Iran if the gloves came off please consider who Iran’s biggest and staunchest ally is. What would it mean to the world if Iran went off with a bang, the world moved to crush it, and Russia stepped in on Iran’s side?
Can some one explain to me why, say, Calif cannot try someone who commits a crime in NJ, but the US can ask Austrailia to extradite a US citizen so he can be tried for something he may or may not have done in Autrailia?
In spite of repeated requests for people trying to promote their own web sites/services/goods NOT to try and get a link to my blog they still keep coming.
If where my site ranks on Google is so important to you promote it yourself.
ElectileDysfunction: the inability to become aroused over any of the choices for President put forth by either party in the 2012 election year.
Thanks Joe B!
As a perfect follow up to my post yesterday Fox News was kind enough to provide the latest Gallup Poll showing the approval rating for Congress has hit the lowest point EVER. Only 10% of Americans approve of the job Congress is doing. 86% disapprove.
My only question is where the found the 10%.
