What, No Yellow Badges To Write About?

The latest from Amir Taheri:
Ahmadinejad, reported to watch a lot of CNN, has seen the gunboats sail in. But he has also seen Nancy Pelosi, Jack Murtha, Barrack Obama, and other American luminaries such as Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky and Jane Fonda who would rather see Bush destroyed than the mullahs restrained.
The rest -- with de rigueur references to Hitler, imperial Japan, and "lack of will" -- is here.

If his complaint that "gunboat diplomacy" no longer works, it isn't because of the anti-war lumineries on CNN, it is because George Bush is the boy who cried wolf.

So if you have no faith in George Bush because he and his administration have proven themselves to be utterly incompetent, you possess "lack of will". Uh, huh.

And if you have no faith that George Bush can handle the situation in Iran, you want to see him destroyed rather than the mullahs restrained. Uh, huh.

Sounds like another typical Republican whiny bitch. Waaaaaah!

Thanks for the laugh.

Gunboat diplomacy only works when your opponents have a pre-industrial society, which does not apply to Iran or any other potential threats.

And honestly, other than desperate Bush worshipers, who even mentions Chomsky or Fonda anymore?

Unless I missed something, the Bush Administration has "run into something hard" in Iraq. Opponents are trying to keep him from running into something harder.

He's just doing his job. Somebody has to take care of the propaganda so our crazies have some support for blowing a bunch of other varios brown skinned people to death.

So he is trying to tell us that CNN has had Jane Fonda, Michael Moore and Noam Chomsky on recently?

When did this happen? Perhaps there was some roundtable on Iran that I missed probably hosted by Ward Churchill.

I would love to find out how Ahmadinejad found out Noam Chomsky's views on anything. I'm sure Chomsky is at the top of his Bookmarks list.

The Iranians have nothing to fear - America would be committing economic suicide if it attacked. It's really THAT simple.
