John43620 saidI knew Biden would consider Pakistan more important to focus on than Iran. Joe gets a ton of contributions from the Iranian American Political Action Committee. Of course he would try and divert attention from Iran. Joe is Iran's biggest suppporter in our Congress.
The fact is, Iran is a major threat to western civilization, much more so than Pakistan. As countries go, Pakistan is a nebish state with little strategic importance. Iran is a gulf state that could cut off the world's oil supply from the entire region. Joe either wasn't thinking or is sticking up for Iran, I think it's the latter.
Governor Palin may not be the most learned scholar on foreign affairs but anyone with a brain and without an agenda can see that Iran is the more serious of the two threats.
Here's the PERFECT example of Republican rhetoric combined with the art of distraction conceived by senior Republican officials which give orders to our fine men and women in the military who have no choice whatsoever other than to believe and obey.
Iran (tho not a shining example of a country as evidenced by its socio-economic thinking and an apparent/severe lack of any substantial democrative values by any means whatsoever) is their sequel to Iraq: or so they'd have you believe in order to, once again, plunge the country into an unjust incursion and reap the benefits thereof. (When was the last time you heard about a suicide bombing is Iran?)
However, Pakistan IS the breeding den: where anti-American and anti-Western thinking is cultivated to maturity in order to plant seeds of hate throughout the world that will ultimately blossom into destructive mechanisms - because Pakistan does not possess the "effective" ability to govern, investigate or police its geography and/or citizens - therefore, those seeds more easily take root and bloom in weak hearts and minds.
Oh, and as for the VP Debate: Biden demonstrated sound, strong and experienced political thinking effectively answering the questions placed before him. Palin demonstrated the ability to recite memorized information that contained several misleading and false answers.
