** Have the American people been consulted? Or are we simply irrelevant?** We all know the answer to that question. We attacked Moammar illegally to keep the oil flowing despite his forsaking WMDs, cooperation on immigration, blood money for Lockerbie, and defunding terrorism. We the people were irrelevant when FDR got Japan to take a swing at us, when LBJ used the non-attack at Tonkin to justify war, when Teddy wanted to teach South America democracy with his big stick, and in the Banana Wars: why would we peons matter now?

Has Mitt Romney given Israel a blank check for war?

So it seemed from the declaration in Jerusalem by his adviser Dan Senor, who all but flashed Israel a green light for war, signaling the Israelis that, if you go, Mitt's got your back:

"If Israel has to take action on its own in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision."

"No option would be excluded. Gov. Romney recognizes Israel's right to defend itself and that it is right for America to stand with it."

What does "stand with"...
