“Danger - if you meet it promptly and without flinching - you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!” ~ Winston Churchill (thanks to Infidel4life)
The world marches to war. The West maybe be weary, but it better be ready. The situation has been made far worse by Obama's foreign policy of appeasement and, in many cases, tacit support. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Gaza, Egypt ....it will all converge. We must have a strong hand in the White House.
War is imminent. According to the SUN, Britain is drawing up plans to send hundreds of troops and an extra nuclear sub to the Gulf as tension mounts with Iran. "Defence chiefs are convinced the UK will be swiftly sucked into any new conflict with Tehran's fanatical regime. They say it is a matter of WHEN not IF war breaks out - with 18 to 24 months the likely timescale."
The leader of the free world's stategy? In order draw Iran into talks, Obama is avoiding dealing with Syria.
Avoidance, aid, abet, backdown. That's Obama's four-step plan.
We have got to throw this spineless, gutless saboteur out in November. It is the defining moment in history in this early part of the twenty-first century.
Anyone but Obama -- anyone (except Ron Paul, of course).
- Sixth day of violent protest follows burning of Korans at U.S. military base
- Rick Santorum says Obama should not have apologised
- Eight American soldiers wounded and two protesters killed in northern Afghanistan today
- Two military advisers executed yesterday at the Interior Ministry. The killer is still on the loose
- International advisers pulled from Afghan ministries
- Death toll reaches 30 since protests began on Tuesday
Santorum says that rather than saying he was sorry, Obama should have only acknowledged that burning copies of Islam's holiest book in a trash pit was wrong and taken responsibility for the incident, 'but to apologise, I think, lends credibility that somehow or another that it was more than that.'

Santorum is the latest Republican to criticise Obama for apologising for burning the religious materials. Despite apologies from the president and other U.S. officials for what they said was a mistake, their regrets have not quelled the anger of Afghans, who viewed the Quran burnings as an illustration of what they perceive as foreign disrespect for their culture and religion.
Today's protest turned violent as 400 demonstrators stormed a U.S forward operating base in the northern province of Kundaz's largest city. An official says people in the crowd fired on police.
NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) confirmed there had been an explosion outside one of its bases.
The latest casualties came as Afghan authorities launched a massive manhunt for a suspect in the execution of two U.S. military advisers yesterday in the Ministry of the Interior.
'There is a suspect who is an employee of the Interior Ministry. He has been identified. Right now the police are trying to arrest him. He is on the run,' the Afghan Interior Ministry said in a statement, citing initial findings by investigators.
In an unprecedented measure all NATO personnel have been recalled from Afghan ministries.
About 30 people have been killed in the violence since it emerged Tuesday that copies of the Muslim holy book and other religious materials had been thrown into a fire pit used to burn garbage at Bagram Air Field, a large U.S. base north of Kabul.
Four U.S. soldiers are among the dead, including two killed earlier in the week by an Afghan soldier.
