Iran is catching some flak for testing some missiles today Iran. That crazy liberal terrorist appeaser Barack Obama responded by saying, "Iran is a great threat. We have to make sure we are working with our allies to apply tightened pressure on Iran" (quoted in Daily Mail, July 9).
And, according to the BBC (July 9), "A senior US state department official said the launch was 'provocative'."
This is nothing short of lunacy. It would have been provocative for Iran to have tested the missile in Jerusalem or Nevada. I mean, what are they supposed to do? Test their weapons off the coast of the coast of Greece?
If Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that Iran wanted to be taken over the U.S. -and why wouldn't he? given the success of the surge in Iraq and all-, I am certain the talking heads would all start talking about how this is just another devious ploy to get the U.S. military into the county so they can be surrounded and then attacked. Victor Davis Hanson would call it a "reverse Trojan horse" and then Sean Hannity would pretend to know what that meant.
To put it another way, Iran's best hope for avoiding a war with the U.S. of A. is good luck.
