    Looks like someone is picking the fight. Maybe US should send to Iran another good will video message.

    Not to defend Iran or anything, but this is a simple matter of returning fire. Of course, idiots like Yurt will see this as a passive Obama policy, but where was Yurt last year when Turkey launched several strikes on Kurdish Northern Iraq when Bush was President?

    His silence is deafening...

    The best you can hope for is that he will actually allow US fighters in the area to intercept further incursons.

    Since we invaded Iraq, we are responsible for protection of their airspace. Question is, are we able to fulfill our duties.

    Hmmm...sounds bad.

    Sounds like an excellent reason to create Kurdistan, doesn't it?

    Of course in order to do that we have to recognise the the Kurds have lived under the rule of nations which have treated them like crap for nearly a century.

    And we cannot do that without pissing off both allies AND perceieved enemies, too.

    Like he did with the Somali Pirates? Bush would nuke them. More to your way of thinking?

    Fucking crybabies.

    By playing up to Iran Obama is undercutting the radicals there.

    Of course you will never understand that.
