If this is a sign of things to come, we all should start building bomb shelters and stocking up on bottled water immediately. It might also be wise to stay away from any place which could represent a potential terrorist target.
I bet OBL is in his Parachinar retreat chortling (since “The One” was elected, things for him are much safer and he has moved from the cave) at a return to Clintonian “why can’t we all just get along” policies which brought us September 11th. The only remaining question is target selection. Anyone want to wager that OBL is sending “The One” a Hallmark card for Nowruz?
Apparently Iran is unbowed by flowery speeches which lack substance, quote poets and use Farsi phrases. I have to give them credit, since their display of intellectual prowess places Iran’s powers of observation well above the majority of Americans who voted for “The One”.
Let’s review a quote and the response, shall we?
“My administration is now committed to diplomacy that addresses the full range of issues before us, and to pursuing constructive ties among the United States, Iran and the international community. This process will not be advanced by threats. We seek instead engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect.”
And the response;
“President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran test-fired a new advanced missile Wednesday with a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike Israel and southeastern Europe.”
It is not enough that “The One” has waffled on GITMO, backs Constitutional Rights for terrorists, undertakes an apology tour on our behalf, bows to foreign leaders, has his “mommy” continually wipe his nose while declaring he is God’s gift and continues to make us less safe. But now “The One” will try to use those same powers which made car companies and banks Fascist wards of the state to endanger sovereign foreign nations we use to call friends.
It might be wise for Iran to start warming up those shiny, new Russian missile defense systems. Us? Get ready to add a new anniversary on your calendar. This one will fall right next to September 11th, courtesy of “The One’ and “change” which oddly resembles the corpse of past liberal misadventures.
