leaders warning them that any nuclear deal they sign with President
Barack Obama's administration won't last after Obama leaves office. This grossly immature and unethical manipulation of National policy to undermine national security is unthinkable. If Iran does not sigh the agreement we are left with two horrible options; a nuclear Iran or war.
US military involvement did not cause missiles to go missing, looting began before the US intervened, and while many of Libya’s 20,000 surface-to-air missiles did go missing

As far as claiming al-Qaida was "wiped out," most experts consider
that a stretch. The group’s power certainly diminished under Bush but it

America does have a large supply of petroleum, natural gas and coal.
But combining the three fuel sources together is like comparing fossil
fuel-based apples and oranges.
Just comparing straight numbers, Perry was right about coal, but wrong on natural gas and crude oil.
The Taliban Five are known to be in Qatar, where they have been since
their release over a year ago. Qatar is considered neutral ground -- not
a battlefield -- and they are not allowed to leave the country.
