"The Cafferty File": Toxic toys?When it comes to oil prices, can the United States afford to attack Iran?
Sorry, Jack. It doesn't matter what the price of oil rises to since the President is an oil man as are his administration and his friends. What is good for them is what we get, and got. -Pierre, Miami, Florida
If the oil was free we still couldn't afford to attack Iran! -Jerry, Ocala, Florida
Here's the question: Would Iran attack the US in Iraq if it got the nuke? With this scenario, can the US afford not to attack Iran? -Roger, Goose Creek, South Carolina
Dear Mr. Cafferty, Hasn't the U.S. got enough on its plate with Iraq? How many wars does the president want to start just so he can look "tough on terrorism"? The U.S. needs to just leave Iran alone. Simple as that. -Paul
Absolutely not. Another war would be such a drain on our already stretched economy that we will have to increase the amount of money we print which we can't back up now. Is Bush trying to demote us from our superpower status? -Linda, Woodbury, New Jersey
What's your reaction to Fred Thompson's describing the Iraqi insurgency as "a bunch of kids with IEDs"?
Actually, Fred Thomson's description, while flippant, isn't that far off. Military buddies of mine describe much of the militia as kids, trained by hardliners who shape their views from a young age and send them off to fight. It seems to mirror, in a way, the child soldiers in Africa. There's an endless supply, and the terrorism won't cease until this problem is addressed.-Patrick, Northridge, California
Thompson's comments make it even more obvious to me that we are dealing with politicians who have little if any tact when it comes to foreign policy. See President Bush's World War III comment. -Mark, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Jack, I think that someone should stick a pin in Thompson, deflate him, stuff him in a match box and mail him back to Hollywood. That shouldn't cost more than about 50 cents, he isn't worth any more than that. -Gloria, Halifax
Jack, That so proves that Mr. Law & Order isn't ready for the presidency. He couldn't handle Jack McCoy and thinks now he is ready for prime time. Pathetic. -Nadir
