  1. Good morning Mr. Prez. Where were you in the last four years? But it means also going full force against Iran’s nuclear plan. In the big picture this is The serious threat. Weapons smuggling – as serious as it is – is still a small part of the picture. Can you do it? Are you capable of successfully completely neutralizing Iran?
    Bottom line – our eyes and hearts should not cease being turned haven bound.

  2. If the Americans really want to reduce weapons to the terrorists they could start by not giving them billions of US dollars to buy the weapons in the first place. They could also stop sell the terrorists weapons as well.
