This is not proving to be a day for blogging, as I have a lot of family business that needs my attention. I’ll be back this afternoon, but until then . . . yes, it’s Open Thread time!

I’m looking forward to seeing Act of Valor this Friday, as are all of the boys in the neighborhood. On the liberal side of the political spectrum, though, there’s a lot of anger at a movie that portrays our military favorably. (Never mind the fact that Obama views the SEALS as his go-to guys and as his greatest PR opportunity.) I suspect that, if these same liberals had a gang of Taliban or al Qaeda killers headed their way, they’d be the ones shrieking most loudly for military aid.
Considering that Iran has repeatedly said that it wants to wipe Israel of the map, and that large segments of its military and political community are actively strategizing ways to accomplish that goal, how much longer can Israel wait until she views Iran’s drum banging as war itself, rather than just throat-clearing?
