Gen. Marks: Iran cracking spy drone plane technology poses 'no immediate threat to the U.S.'

U.S. Army General James "Spider" Marks says there’s "no immediate threat to the U.S." if Iran has cracked the spy drone plane technology. He expects however that Iran with the help of other nations will continue to work on collecting system information and exploiting the various pieces inside the drone.

    The problem with the use of a term like neo-con is that direfefnt people use it to mean direfefnt things. The modern day use of the term has come to represent ultra-conservative thought supply side economics, low tolerance for diplomacy, pre-emptive warfare, etc. The traditional use of the term, before Bush came into office, was to mean a former liberal whose experience in dealing with reality rather than pipe-dreams has moved him into a more moderate stance. I embrace that philosophy, as I consider myself to be a true moderate .someone who allows himself to see and understand all sides of an issue before taking a stance. However, I have come to shun the term neo-con due to the modern-day stigmatism that is now associated with it.
