    Does the President still get his presidential pension if he's ejected?
    And if Israel can not pay its largest benefactor a little courtesy then I invite Congress to cut them off.

    Eggxactly! BamBam doesn't want to give his liberal freakies fodder. So whatever is done proactively, is done in secrecy so the crybabies don't....cry.

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    Yes, I'm sure that Netanyahu and the rest of the Israelis ought to be willing to die in an Iranian nuclear strike as a matter of "courtesy".

    Like the Christians in Egypt ought to be willing to die as a matter of advancing peace in the country.

    Exactly. If all of us stubborn infidels would just get with the program and either die or convert, there'd be no problem.

    Drones, sabotage, assassinations, hackers; it's they way of the world these days, and a far, far better world it is, too. In the past, large armies just charged into machine gun positions. The Arab armies expected that model to work up until a few years ago. Got their ass handed to them, too.

    Nah. The war is going well, I think. I hope.:)

    I think you have a point, and hope you are right. It makes sense to let Iran think that the US and Israel are having diplomatic problems. But between the captured drone and the assassinations, it looks to me like there is some level of coordination between both countries.
