There WAS talk about Iran joining the anti ISIS coalition, in exchange for loosening up the sanctions. Not happening. It's been shot down.

Well at lest that's good news, for now anyway.

The only reason we got rid of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, and want to see the fall of Assad is to protect the petrodollar.

"There's talk of a deal where Iran turns over the al Qaeda leaders it’s harboring and joining the fight against ISIS along side the U.S in return for nuclear concessions "

Obama can only get the 'speak softly' part down.

"I prefer the speak softly and carry a big stick diplomacy. "

I love Teddy's policy. Just carrying the stick is not enough, you have to be willing to use it and use it full force.

Reagan swung the big stick, and that lasted for decades until Obama started screwing it up.

Perf that is far from what we are doing now...

We are going from one group to another with no consistency and not even attempting to deal with nations. What you describe is what we had with Libya and Syria before we started meddling.

FJ - I prefer peace based fear and respect as opposed to bribery.

Anyone who has a true understanding of human nature should know that those, and maybe common culture, are pretty much the only things that maintain peace.

Perf you have any idea of how much bombs cost, let alone the cost of one or more high tech fighters?

And I don't think we were spending very much in Libya or Syria before we stuck our nose in.

We do not have to pump as much money into these countries as the past, but peace is cheaper than war. Just some people make less money during peace.
