Oh, piffle, "weekly threats". Show me a reliable source, i.e. one that
isn't a toady to the neocon warmongers. And threats are not the same
as actions. Iran's mullahs aren't the nicest people in the world, but
they are quiet about Israel. Mr. Ahmadinejad doesn't make foreign
policy.

As for Israel, methinks US policy should be guided by what's in the
best interest of the U.S., and where that disagrees with the interests
of Israel, too bad.

Yeah. McCain the warmonger vs. Obama the feel-good revival meeting
socialist. Once more we're presented with a choice like that between
syphilis and gonorrhea.

I have to give McCain credit on two points. He did vote against the
farm bill, a disgusting orgy of concern for poor farmers like David
Letterman and David Rockefeller. And of all the presidential
candidates, only he and Ron Paul came out four square against the use
of torture.
