Iran War

Iran has again attacked American soil.  Remember attacking our embassy in 1979 was by international law an attack on American soil .  We did nothing.  They are killing our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and we do nothing.  They are developing a nuclear capability to "wipe out" one of our best allies in the Middle East and we do nothing.  Finally they have been caught planning a 911 type bombing right here in the U.S., as well as an assassination of an ally's ambassador, and because we foiled it we do....nothing.  What is the difference between the Al Qaeda attack on  the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001 and the attack on the Twin Towers in 2/26/1993?  After the 93 attack we did nothing.  We went at it like it was a law enforcement issue instead of an act of war.  Like we are doing with Iran today.  Well we know how that turned out then and we are doomed to repeat it now.

Fast and Furious in New Mexico

The Mayor of Columbus New Mexico Eddie Espinosa, Police Chief Angelo Vega, Village Trustee Blas Gutierez, and seven other men were arrested  March 10, 2011 for allegedly selling over 200 guns to a Mexican drug cartel.  Now that's all well and good, I hope they get very long sentences for adding fuel to an already horrific drug war being waged on both sides of the border.  If any of those guns were involved in murder those gunrunners should also face charges for those crimes.

Still I have to wonder at the hypocrisy of a Justice Department that indicts those smugglers while ignoring the fact that it's own boss, Eric Holder, is complicit in smuggling well over 1,500 guns to those same cartels.  The ATF "Fast and Furious" guns actually were used to kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as well as over 200 Mexicans.
