iran next?

why not? I mean what's another 1.6 TRILLION DOLLARS, 80,000 civilian deaths, and 2 million refugees. At least Boeing, ATK Tech Systems, Honeywell Corporation, and Bush/Cheney/Blackwell/Big Oil will just keep getting richer. Hey--trickel down economics, rigth? I mean if *some* people are getting wealthier, it will eventually trickle down to the 40 million Americans who have no health insurance.

Oh, and here's John McCain's take on the whole thing.

And when asked later if his joke was insensitive, he replied "Insensitive to What? The Iranians?"
By the way "The Iranians", which is to say, the Persians, are one of the oldest and profoundly beautiful cultures on the planet. It would be altogether american to bomb them. Thoroughly. Fuck I hate being American sometimes.

axis of evil? the Iranians I know are impressive, gentile, humourous, insightful, honourable ...

this john mccain is beyond the pale - up there with george w. bush.

if he gets elected, i'm outta here. i've been swamped with lovely hope that Barack Obama or John Edwards will be the president, bringing in an era of hopeful, lovely, caring people honouring, instead of people demeaning...

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops ... at all

Well the Syrians are quite different to the Persians (Iranians). Most arabs hate them, for a start.

thanks. brain is dying, as quarter end approaches. meant persians. thankyou.

Benjamin Ady said...

why do arabs hate syrians?

Joe said...

Syrians are arabs. Iranian are persians.

Generally there is a cultural and religious difference and longstanding dislike of each other in the region.

Just like everyone also hates Turks.
