Relations between America and Iran are strained, to say the least. Unbelievable amount of dissension. Question is: since the Iranian government is not autonomous, is their a faction who plotted this or were all notified? Dramatic news there. You can count on one hand how many times a foreign country has taken a shot at a representative in our capital.
Romney for me is the only credible candidate. He wouldn't embarrass in the world arena like some of the others on the table. Who cares what he practices in private.

Realistically he's the only figure with enough presence and appeal to compete with the charismatic one.

As for Iran, the clerics and political leaders have too many attack dogs to keep track off. It's obviously a rogue wing getting itchy feet and wanting to get famous. If Iran's leadership wanted to take him out, the last thing they would do is attack him in the capital. They might have extremist beliefs, but they're not dumb. Iran has enough domestic problems with warring political factions. The Iranian economy also isn't exactly booming right now, so I doubt pissing off the USA in plain sight is a big priority right now.

Mayorga on BJ: Real men fight- maricons roll on ground and wrestle. Boxeo is número UNO! Tell BJ to box me- after I KO him, I will put him not in a body bag but in a condom so he can think that’s where he shud have stayed

Mayorga on facing Vargas: I'm going to give Vargas the chance to cash his last paycheck. I would like to say publicly that Fatty Vargas has always feared me. I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

Re: Official Politics Thread

I did some research on it and I don't think it all adds up. It all sounds like propoganda and gesturing again from Washington. The Cartel and Iran conspiring together to pay these two guys (a naturalized American citizen via Iran) to murder the Saudi ambassador? I don't buy it. I think it's more to do with Iran announcing how furious they were that America continues to stick their nose in others' business. It is clear that they were upset about us being so heavily involved in the Persian Gulf but the media again went overboard by sensationalizing and embelleshing the story quite a bit.

It does not compute to me. Obama says Iran "has a price to pay", which is disappointing. I'm sick of all this wasteful spending on foreign affairs. Until I learn more, I'll hold my judgement but that is what I'm leaning towards right now.

Re: Official Politics Thread

For a guy that won the Nobel Peace Prize, Obama does love starting up new military adventures. Just been reported Obama has sent 100 US troops to combat the LRA. Does Obama and Bush have a bet to see who can stir up the most trouble before they leave office?

Re: Official Politics Thread

I am fond of Congressman Paul. Not a fan-boy like some that blindly consider him the second coming of Jesus Christ but in a relatively weak GOP field, I would vote for him above every other potential candidate.

Re: Official Politics Thread

I first read about him, in a Michael Moore book I think, a few years back, & was fully behind him. My sister got married in '07, & my bro-in-law wouldn't stop talking about him for '08... But I'm not near as behind him as I used to be.

In other news, read this on Yahoo this afternoon from Hogan...

Hogan said he was still sore about the president using his theme song, "I Am a Real American" when Obama addressed the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner shortly after he released his long form birth certificate earlier this year.

"I kinda was a little upset that he didn't ask me permission to use my music," Hogan added. "But the change of heart is that I think I should be president.
I know nothing about politics. I think a flat tax across the board would straighten everything out."

When told that the Hulk's idea sounds something like presidential candidate Herman Cain's "9-9-9 Plan," he responded, "Wow, yeah well he's not a real American like I am. . . . I've been around, people know me, they know everything about me, they know I'm for real, they know I know nothing about politics. I'll just make decisions on what's right or wrong."

Thumbs up Cain Proposes Electrified Border Fence

http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2...-border-fence/

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said Saturday that part of his immigration policy would be to build an electrified fence on the country’s border with Mexico that could kill people trying to enter the country illegally.

Uh, yeah. Won't happen.

Merging this with the political thread since it has politics implications.

Thanks for you cooperation.

That will never happen in a westernized, ultra sensitive, liberal country like ours. There would be so much outrage.
