    Hear all the barking dogs over the ever so small country of Iran? Is it possible they of every poltical party want to distract us from the clear defeats in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Tunisia and elsewhere? Everything supported that
    fell apart by no efforts of the United States or NATO? Ghaddafi supported by Dick Cheny and the rest?

    Basically are there any Martians or UFOs to declare as bl;ocking the universe for more new TAX pork set asides? Tails wagging the dogs?
