***Iran creating Suicide Drones which will threaten Israel, U.S.
Iran has placed an “explosive emphasis” in putting military surveillance and attack drones into the sky, including “suicide” aircraft that increase risks for Israel and for U.S. ships in the Persian Gulf, according to a new U.S. Army analysis.
The Iranian army is spearheading the drive for a fleet of explosive-mounted killer drones. It tested them in December against ship targets near the Strait of Hormuz, the chokepoint for maritime traffic in and out of the Gulf.
The implication is clear: The hard-line Shiite-dominated regime has long threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, through which about 20 percent of the world’s oil is transported daily. The live-fire test/exercise shows that kamikaze drones are in the Iranian war plan.
The press is a joke anymore.
A Godfather in the mob finds out that his bookkeeper has stolen ten million bucks.
This bookkeeper happens to be deaf, so the Godfather brings along his attorney, who knows sign language. The Godfather asks the bookkeeper: "Where is the 10 million bucks you embezzled from me?" The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the 10 million dollars is hidden.
The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about." The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about."
That's when the Godfather pulls out a 9 mm pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper's temple, cocks it and says: "Ask him again! The attorney signs to the underling: "He'll kill you for sure if you don't tell him!"
The bookkeeper signs back: "OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens!"
The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he say?"
The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."
***Democrats are proving their unwillingness to follow the Constitution.
Liberal Democrats are pushing back against a bill that would allow Congress to weigh in on a developing deal with Iran over its nuclear capabilities, agreeing with President Barack Obama that the legislation would jeopardize the diplomatic process.
"Diplomacy has taken us to a framework agreement founded on vigilance and enforcement, and these negotiations must be allowed to proceed unencumbered," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi in a statement on Wednesday, reports The Hill.
Pelosi's statement appeared to be coordinated with an announcement minutes later by a fellow California Democrat, Sen. Barbara Boxer, who urged members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to postpone a vote next week on a bill proposed by Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, and Robert Menendez, D-New Jersey.
Corker, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wants Congress to be allowed 60 days to review the outline of the deal with Iran and freeze sanctions relief against Tehran. Further, the bill allows legislators to vote on the deal.
