Any direct or de facto vote cast for a Democrat this November is a vote in favor of the Taliban.

Bush strongly warns Iran re: naval clash

President Bush on Wednesday warned Iran of 'serious consequences' if it meddles again with U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf.

The best "warning" would of been from the U.S. ships defensive systems. I'd prefer having had a few of the small craft shredded, but a shot (or shots) across the bow would of been sufficient.
