Saluting Troops w/ Latte OR Dog: Tip of Disrespect Iceberg

Brian J. Foley in “Dissident Thoughts Upon Learning of the ‘Latte Salute’ Scandal” writes:

Obama-haters are hopping mad that Obama saluted troops while holding a cup of café latte in his saluting hand.

What Booman said

Yes, you heard me right, What Booman said. It seems that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is "rapid" action.

The nicest thing I ever heard about Tim Kaine

The lobbying group AIPAC has consistently fought the Obama Administration on policy. Is it now losing influence?

At one point, Tim Kaine, a Democrat from Virginia, asked about conservative trends in Israel, a participant recalled. “He said that he supports Israel, but he’s concerned that Israel is headed toward a one-state solution—and that would be so damaging and dangerous for everyone involved.”

Evolving American-Israeli relations

I think that 1967 is the key year in US-Israel relations. If you were born before 1967 you see Israel as the plucky David rebuilding Jewish culture after the Holocaust.
