Weaknesses In Power Systems Spark Fear Of Science Fiction-Style Hack Sabotage

So typical of the US military industrial complex. First they create a virus and use it against an enemy. Then they start raising the fear that the weapon we created might be used against us. Once again the arms race escalates and a whole new industry of fear and destructio­n is born.

David Axelrod: 'Ask Osama Bin Laden' If Obama Was Prepared As President (VIDEO)

So your argument that Obama may not have been ready to be president but grew into the role is that Bush was so incompeten­t that he let 9/11 happen? Huh?

In fact Obama hit the ground running as much as any president in recent history. The auto industry was collapsing just as he entered office and he managed to save it and unlike Bush's TARP mess did it in a way that ended up getting tax payer money back with interest.

Getting back to Bush he was incompeten­t from the beginning to the end. Read the new book The Elenth Day about 9/11. The Bush administra­tion missed countless red flags about the impending attack and on the day of the attack the chain of command was broken.

Saudi Arabia's Appropriate Response to Iran's Assassination Plot

I don't see a world ban on Iran's oil ever happening. The demand for oil is too great.

Regarding the threat of war: Even if it is proven that this plot had approval at the highest level of Iran's government (something I'm not convinced of yet) I don't see war as an appropriat­e response. The idea that you should punish thousands (probably hundreds of thousands) of innocent Iranians for the idiocy of a government that they voted out anyway but that retained power against the will of its people is absurd.

Besides there is plenty of precedent for turning a blind eye to government involvemen­t in conspiraci­es. I just finished the book the Eleventh Day by Anthony Summers. He provides indisputab­le evidence that some people in the Saudi government helped make 9/11 happen and that the Bush administra­tion knew about that and covered it up.

Finally, I don't agree that other sanctions won't work. They take longer and don't provide the wargasm that so many chickenhaw­ks in the US media demand but can eventually be very effective.
