  • History repeating itself.

    America sat back watching Germany arm-up for World War I Then entered the war to end all wars. Then America watched as Germany, Italy and Japan prepared for World War II then we entered the Big War.

    America is now sitting back watching Iran go nuclear while our great leader President Obama is decimating our military.

    I hope and pray that we will support our only Middle East ally Israel even at the last minute.

    The time to prepare is before the crisis- not during.
