Bush prepares to bring it

Ok ok, so you've all been reading about this in the papers the past few weeks, and I've delayed comment until now. Bush has moved a second US navy aircraft carrier strike group into the Persian Gulf, and according to last week's New Yorker, has also set up a planning committee to come up with an airstrike plan against Iran that can be made effective within 24 hours. Meanwhile, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff has declared a "zero chance" of war with Iran, citing all of the reasons that we in the rational world are all aware of as to why such a war would be collossaly stupid for the US to get involved in. Five generals and admirals in the US army have announced that they will resign if an attack on Iran is ordered. Clearly, there's trouble in Washington. Well, that's all well and good, but there will be more generals and admirals lined up to take their place, with more malleable consciences and more pitiful IQs. There is no shortage of collossaly stupid, short-sighted, racist, narrow-minded, etc people in the Bush administration, and in the armed forces. Case in point:

"Do you have any idea how many Generals their are in the U.S. If it is true a few will resign so be it, they can give up their 10 to 15 thousand dollar a month retirement. If they can't obey the orders of the Command in Chief, the President of the US, they shouldn't be in the military. I agree with Christopher, the only thing these extremists know is a bullet in the head. I say stop playing around with them, lets bring the full force of the United States on them. I can't believe some of the comments and articles I've read here and in the Russian paper. What has happened to this world, we seem to spend more time and effort fighting each other than fighting the evil forces of this world... Most of Europe, Russia and China are a joke in our efforts. I think we should relocate the UN to one of their countries and stop our 5 billion dollar funding. They can take all their spies with them.. I have served my country and never once I asked why, I just did it as it was my duty...."

This comment was posted in response to the article I've linked to above, which was published by the Times. Let's ignore the grammatical and punctuation errors, shall we? That leaves us with a military man from Colorado, calling the Iranians extremists. I'd like to take a walk through the streets of Colorado Springs holding up a mirror.

Yes, Ahmadinejad is a nutjob trying to instigate the great battle between Good and Evil in order to bring back the 12th Imam, who has been hiding since the 9th century, and who will come back to earth on the Day of Judgement and restore peace on earth. Unless by 'Imam' he means 'atomic bomb', and by 'Day of Judgement' he means 'nuclear winter', then there is no doubt as to his delusion. Unfortunately, neither is there any doubt as to George W. Bush's delusions of achieving world domination and turning all its citizens into replicas of our friend Michael Blair from Colorado Springs. So attack Iran they will, and such an attack will almost certainly wipe out any hope they had of reclaiming the hegemonic status that has slipped through their fingers. While some might be tempted to breathe a sigh of relief when this happens, I'm afraid that the alternative is much, much worse. Get your headscarves ready, ladies.
