A Real Menace

The Bush Administration wants to bomb Iran.

They've talked about it and lusted after it, hungering to see tons of ordnance blowing up and listening to bereft women and children wailing in Farsi. They almost orgasmed in public over the very concept of attacking Iran.


Why, to stop their nuclear ambitions and their terroristic depredations in the democratic paradise that is Iraq, that's why!

And those are their main talking points. I didn't buy their bullshit when they were going on about Iraq and Saddam in 2002; I'm not buying it about Iran and Ahmadinejad in 2007. Not working; ain't gonna happen.

Oh, and the BBC have reported that Iran is trying to broker a cease-fire between Turkey and Iraq over the PKK. Gee, kind of giving the lie to the Bushite rhetoric, huh?

But there is a real menace out there. An unstable country, with a military regime, religious strife, and an arsenal of nuclear weapons and missiles capable of striking Israel and our bases in Iraq and the Persian Gulf.

And the name of this menace?

Pakistan, the country in Southwest Asia to the east of Iran. The Head Motherfucker-in-Charge there, General-President Pervez Musharraf, has suspended the country's constitution, put troops around the broadcasting centers, shut down independent media, and locked up the Chief Justice of the country's Supreme Court and ten other judges in the Supreme Court building. And why has he done this? Well you may ask. The Supreme Court was about to rule on the legality of Musharraf's election campaign. So here we have a country teetering on the brink of failure, with actual Honest Injun nukes, and what is our government doing about it?
