    The Contra rebels brought down Oliver North from his power and prestige. However, Syrian rebels and their links to Libyan rebels may not be much different for the Presidents or Dictators of those countries. Nicaragua brought back their Cuban puppet and maybe the same will happen with Iran and Syria with Hezbollah expanding their regime and philosophy. Whether Al Quaeda, Taliban, or Hezbollah, they all want their power and prestige to be better than the other group.

    They don't bring happiness and joy to families as that is never what warring factions have been known for. They like war and feast on war. They want everyone else to suffer as they perceive that they have or even more than they perceive they have.

    Benghazi, Iran, Nicaragua, Libya, Turkey and the list goes on.

    He reminds me of a younger Navy pilot when he got released from POW camp with the rebels not sure they could trust him. The President was a little concerned that the Senator was in the Syrian rebels backyard. Maybe the President will not have control over what happens as he has rid us of Al Quaeda and maybe the Taliban in their original colors of red, black and yellow.

    Threats to our country's existence will exist until the end of time as we know it. You don't get rid of foes against freedoms and all that entails. It doesn't mean that government is the cure-all as that is not their purpose. This President thinks he can bad mouth our patriots of the past and make himself look good to the world. The Chinese have stolen our defense secrets by hacking into a classified network and the administration makes light of those hackers. When you give the enemy documents about weapons systems that are not authorized for release, you are authorizing loss of freedoms of information that we hold close.

    We had spies giving documents for a price and we don't take that lightly.
