    I did horrible. I did not know Canada supplied us with so much oil.

    I guess Afghans and Iraqis count only as 1/8 or persons. There have been many more killed than the 137,000 the US military acknowledges. In 2009 (?) Doctors without Borders came up with over 600,000 in Iraq alone.

    I taught AP Government in the public schools for many years. I wish Romney and Obama would take the released national exam and see how knowledgeable they are. It would be fun and interesting and hopefully not embarassing.

    Netanyahu warns from Iranian nuke for the last 20 years, and he said that if Iran would have been free to produce the bomb it would have taken her 5-6 years. And he was right then. Iran paved the way to a bomb under international oppression (and support from others, American journalists either) and against intelligence operations that hold the promoting of this project smoothly. Iran aim is to get as much closer as possible to the point of no return and then push rapidly ahead. The Israeli (and American) problem is to know the real status of the project each time and step. That’s why Israel pushes for earlier attack and the US tries to play more politics before no other choice but attacking. Netanyahu is 100% right!
