"Obama, Obama, you are either with them, or with us!"


Peaceful DemonstrationThe Associated Press released a stunning news article at 5:15 this evening, Eastern Time Zone.

There were riots in Tehran, Iran today and anti-government protestors were staging rallies and openly calling for President Obama to intervene! This is a startling turn of events and one that we all need to understand could have very deep implications for all of us for many years to come, regardless of what the U.S. government decides to do in Iran.

The story is here.


Here is that same story of today’s clashes in Iran from the Washington Post.

On a related issue, the number of Americans who believe that Obama is keeping his campaign promises to the American people has dropped drastically in a recent poll taken by USA Today/Gallup Poll. Politics Daily has that story here.

Here is a story from the late edition of the Washington Post outlining the details of today’s action by an Italian court which has convicted 23 Americans, mostly intelligence personnel, of crimes related to rendition of Muslims in Italy to other countries.

In the Post it is reported tonight that five British soldiers have been shot and killed by an Afghan policeman. He fled the scene but before he did, he wounded six other British soldiers and two Afghani policemen. That story is here.

In this story we find out that according to statistics released last week by the Army, 75% of all potential American Service age inductees (17 to 24) are not eligible for military service due to physical fitness problems or illegal activity in their past.  That story is here.

In a late breaking story on Iraq, lawmakers have put off a vote again on how to handle elections in Kirkuk. It is making American diplomatic options with a barely legitimate government rather difficult.  That story is here.

Tell me again. I am not really sure I understand. Exactly why is American blood and treasure being spilled all over the sands of Western Asia?
