    Out of the roughly 2,000 weapons sold through Fast and Furious, 34 were .50-caliber rifles that can take down a helicopter, according to officials.

    I have a feeling that we'll be reminded of this Obama legacy for a long time to come.

    This is another thing the Iranians badly need.

    Iran, as it is today, with a nuke is a very bad thing. An Iran with a powerful conventional army, a happier population, more powerful proxies backed up by nukes is much, much worse.

    Depending upon the 2016 elections, there may remain a window of opportunity for prosecution of former Federal officials, elected and appointed.
    I would love to see...

    Obama's executive order on illegals are also in jeopardy. SCOTUS will be ruling on it this summer.

    In the meantime, Obama is considering issuing yet another executive order to force companies doing business with the federal government to reveal their political spending. WTF?

    The Iranians have other, more important things to spend that money on. Mainly, improving their conventional forces and increased funding of their proxies.

    ^ But the nukes might happen sooner if some of these funds are directed that way. AND, if "something" else doesn't happen to delay or stop development.

    Pakistan has nukes and since that Sunni nation has them, the major Shia nation desires same, for "balance".
    Like I said, the nukes will happen.

    Iran needs to improve it's conventional forces. Russia needs to sell hardware. If the cost of Russian equipment could be lowered with more orders, then the Russians can afford more themselves.

    Also, Hezbollah will most definitely benefit from this.

    Do you really think Israeli subs are all innocent? I'd be willing to wager some cash that they've got functional nuke tipped cruse missiles.

    Obama's more on par with Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce, (three idiots on domestic policy that really wound up the nation and hurt progress for decades after leaving office) Woodrow Wilson (very close parallel there), or Warren Harding (corruption and incompetence).
