This year we could face our greatest security challenge/threat since WWII.
 
If you are paying attention, it's going to happen.

Take your pick from below. They are just waiting to blow up. We will not be able to keep all these threats/challenges from exploding.

  • Iran on the verge of nuclear weapon. We or Israel attacks. Shit can spiral out of control quick. Iran attacks the USA in the continental USA.
  • North Korea has nuclear weapons. They have paid unemployed Russian ballistic engineers to help them. They are now making progress. The kid needs to prove to the military he is as loco as they are. Shit can spiral out of control quick.
  • Pakistan has a coup or political instability and terrorists get a hold of one of their nuclear weapons. Shit can spiral out of control quick.
  • Syria draws us into a renewal of the cold war. Shit can spiral out of control quick.
  • The Saudi or Jordanian Kings get thrown out by their people.
  • Egypt turns to civil war and the hard liners win and disavow the Israeli/Egyptian treaty. Shit can spiral out of control quick.

I didn't know you were a NeoCon.

Seems like the Cuban Missile Crisis was greater than these scenarios.

I believe we need to protect our-self's from people/states that would do us harm. Is that a NeoCon?

"Would" is not the same as "are."

I would say the developments in the Middle East are as imposing as any threat ever faced~

A lot of if's in the OP that if happen, become "are".

It's a good thing we have Obama at the helm so none of that will happen. He'll have everyone of those countries holding hands with us and singing Kumbaya together.

Yeah cuz he's been such a pussy. You need to update your talking points.

On odd-numbered dates, it is, "Obama's drones are killing too many people."

On even-numbered dates it is, "Obama is appeasing and apologizing too much."

You got it!

• Started a war in Libya under false pretenses while shifting the goal posts on Congressional approval
• Bombing Yeman and lying about it.
• Increasing troops in Afghanistan, then drawing down while still leaving in more than Bush.
• Tried to extend the withdrawal agreement from Iraq that Bush set, but the Iraqis said get out.
• Furiously expanded the war in Pakistan using drones
• Claimed the right to unilaterally kill any US citizen on earth without a nod from Congress or the courts
• Tortured a whistleblower
• Implemented invasive airport security measures
• Continues rendition
• Detention without trial
• Violations of Habeas Corpus
No wonder Bill Kristol calls Obama a NeoCon.

WTF? He's more likely to kill them with drone attacks. You really need to take your Obama is an appeaser talking point back to the Glen Beck bubble.

yep, his liberal base has a lot to be pissed off about the way he has conducted himself as President. Neocons and Republicans have no reason to bitch other than its Obama. If it was a Republican doing these things they would be anointing him the second coming of Reagan.
