Barbour: Iran biggest threat to global security

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Wednesday that Iran is the world's top threat to peace and stability.

Barbour, who is a potential 2012 Republican candidate for president, said world leaders should be judged by their success in responding to Iran's nuclear program and what he called Iran's support for terrorism and efforts to destabilize other governments.

The governor received a warm ovation at a prestigious Israeli security conference, where Iran and its nuclear program were a main subject.

Barbour said American policymakers tend to fall into one of two camps regarding America's alliance with Israel: those who see it as costly and problematic, and those who, like Barbour, consider it a strategic partnership.

"Israel is the Holy Land of democratic faith," Barbour said. "We're with you, and we're glad you're with us."

It was Barbour's only public appearance during his 5-day trip to Israel, hosted by the Republican Jewish Coalition. His visit followed recent trips to Israel by two former Republican governors also considering presidential runs: Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.

Barbour seems well qualified to be President.

Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie.

Bull crap. That's not his reason, that's his excuse.

Just like WMD was a code word for Iraqi gold and wealth, these thugs are looking to loot Iran.

Free includes debt-free!

OMG! Could it be any more obvious?!!

At an Israeli "security conference in Israel", hosted by the "Republican Jewish Coalition"???
You have gotta be kidding me!

Of course, this follows the last two a$$-kissing tours of Israel by the other two boobs that think they can pull the country down even faster.

How much more plain can it be, folks?
