Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Barak Hussein Obama is on the threshold of attaining the nomination of the Democratic Party...he's just another Jimmy Carter, multi-ethnic course.

I firmly believe that he will be far more disasterous than Mr. Carter has been.

90% of the problems that we face in the middle east stem from Mr. Carter's failure to deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Until the Carter Doctrine, if the citizens of one country attacked the embassy of another, either by entering the grounds or seizing diplomats, it was considered an act of war. His failure to act against the taking of the embassy and the 44 (? or 43) diplomats hostage, has emboldened out enemies everywhere.

We are now reaping nearly 30 years fruit of the failure to act, and thus, have a presidential candidate who has stated many, many times in public and on his campaign website that he will negotiate, without preconditions with the President of Iran. This will be a foreign policy disaster of monumental porportions. The only thing worse Mr. Obama could possibly do would be to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in Iraq...which is something he has stated he will do.

These actions will not make a regional war less likely, on the contrary, they will make the coming conflagration far more likely, and thus, much more difficult to defeat. None of our present allies will be likely to assist us, and contrary to what the public thinks, we do have many allies in Iraq, from the Australians, Poles, Romanians, etc. (many are formely Warsaw Pact Nations, and thus VERY familiar w/oppression).

Additionally, failure to block Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, will make a regional war inevitable. They will strike at Israel who will (having 300-600 weapons of their own) retaliate on ALL of the Muslim countries of the region in an effort to forstall their own destruction.

So...what do you think? Comments are greatly
