    Bill Kristol thinks we should invade Namibia.

    On the one hand, we have “bombing,” which makes lots of money for defense contractors and builds careers for generals and causes television newsreaders to wear funny khaki sleeveless jackets with many pockets.

    On the other hand, we have “talking,” which kills nobody and doesn’t make anybody any money and doesn’t produce dramatic front-page photos of shit blowing up and doesn’t enhance the balance sheet of Lockheed Martin or Boeing. Buncha suits yakking behind closed doors, and issuing “joint communiques.”

    The choice is obvious.

    This calls for one and only one thing: Admiral McCain needs to muster his Chickenhawk Squadron for a near suicidal attack. For Freedom.

    [re=424987]magic titty[/re]: Source, pleez? Dickie can’t have said something that monumentally stoopid.

    Better send in the American Police Force!

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Rumor has it there was singing and laughter heard coming from the negotiating room.
    It sounded like:
    Bomb, bomb, bomb. Bomb, bomb Iran.

    Targeting Iran, and tripling aid to Pakistan…how ironic…

  • problemwithcaring

    The new Washington Post opinion columnist really should just be a Facebook quiz.

    Which Sex in the City character most represents your opinion of what should be our foreign policy relationship with Iran?

    America is: Samantha. We say “Fuck ’em ’cause they are young and we still can.”

    [re=424987]magic titty[/re]: I…don’t know if that is a joke or not.

    This sounds like a job for Prince Alan of Ocala.

    By the power of Grayson…he has the power!

    [re=424993]V572625694[/re]: Meh. Close enough.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=424989]qaf[/re]: He would love to go, but he’s already putting his life in danger on the front lines in NYC and DC. Both attacked on 9/11 — that is, if you count the part of DC that’s actually across the river and called Virginia. Dude deserves a medal of valor or something.

    Peace with Iran obviously starts with the extradition of Roman Polanski.

    More of the OT, that everyone expects: An advertisement for Foxworthy selling “bag your biggest buck ever” on this queer site?
    Whoever sells ad space for Wonkette is a chilled cold as a cast iron toilet seat on the shady side of an iceberg sales folk. They should get involved in selling Saturn, I’m sure they could get Ford to buy it.

  • germansteel

    I say we heavily arm Michael Ledeen, Dick Cheney, John Bolton, and Fred Kagan and turn those mean, motherfuckers lose on those camel jockeys – and I mean, right now!!!

  • Extemporanus

    [re=424987]magic titty[/re]: You lie…like a Persian! Er, I mean, you lie like a rug!

    You lie on the floor like shag carpeting, all plush and thick and curly like a super-comfy wool afro, is what I’m saying. And, uh, look, I’m 100% white, OK? But if I was going to have a best friend lying around, I’d want them to be shag carpeted.

    No, wait. Aw…fuck it.

    Why do the big powers hate the troops so much?

    [re=424974]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Bill Kristol thinks we should invade Namibia.
    Well, that was a German colony until WW1, so there is a connection to the P5+1. Tanzania (formerly Tanganyika, formerly German East Africa) was too, so there’s that.
