    The massive bombing in Iraq to show Saddam how 'tough' the US, was exhibit 1 of a doomed mission. Bombing empty buildings was Israel's policy to stop terrorism and it worked as well for Israel as it did for the US. If those bombs destroyed Saddam's bases - like the city of Tikrit- the meaning would be crystal clear and the loss of Saddam fanatics - his base support -would make things alot easier in the future. If the US forgets the stupid Shock & Awe nonsense and puts together a real degrading of Iranian-rich targets without regard to the 'civilians' who work at the nuclear site ( p.s. you want the nuclear scientists dead), those at the military airports and those who work pumping oil, the Saudis/Kuwaitis would be so happy seeing the Persian-Shia enemy beaten, they would pump so much oil you wouldn't notice much if any - of a price hike. So much for the energy problem. And in two years or less, Iraq will be back on line.

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
