RAGE AGAINST THE NIGHT - AND GLOBAL WARMING

"...that the Earth Goddess will be angry at us and punish us by cancelling the Winter Olympics in 2050? "

Huh? Should we instead believe that the "real" God is going to send us hurricanes because we allow homosexuals to live among us? The "right" is the side really caught up in supernatural mythology.

I wonder if the incoming congress could possibly be any worse than this:

CIA VS. THE WHITE HOUSE: TY COBB AIN'T NO BENCHWARMER

Jumping on the RW bandwagon is easy. Unfortunately, it hasn't even been substantiated (not even by the administration) that she was leak. She denies it, BTW.

THE MEDIA AND THE LEFT GO NUCLEAR

I'm a very hard liberal, can't bash President Jr hard enough or often enough

Having said that, I part company with my fellow libs about this issue

I'm in agreement with Rick's overall view, that any US military strike on Iran will be self-defeating, and there will be absolutely NO nuclear strike against Iran

First off, there's more anxiety on the part of the Iranian Mullahs now than at any time since the Shah's overthrow, as the majority of Iranians weren't even born at the time Khomeini came back to Iran in 1978. The citizens are growing increasingly restless with their theological overlords, and present a REAL opportunity for change from the current regime's day-to-day operations

More & more, the Iranians are standing up to, and challenging, the Mullah's tightfisted grip on power

A US Military strike would have the disastrous effect in that it would rally enough of the citizenry to their leaders to be able to marginalize those still speaking out for more freedoms in Iran

Let's look at this with some logic

The first target Iran would retaliate against if it was hit, would be the US troops in Iraq-they're already battling a Sunni insurgency, Shiite militias/death squads and foreign terrorists going into Iraq for real-world terrorist training. I'd say, and I'm thinking most of the politicains on Capitol Hill would say, that the US Troops in Iraq already have more than enough to worry about without adding Iran to the mix

But there's two other reasons why any military strike is just rhetoric

Russia & China

Russia's got Iran on board as a major business partner, and the nuclear might to dissuade the US from launching any military strike, let alone a nuclear one

China would present even more of a problem, as not only do they have nuclear missiles, but a devastating nonmilitary weapon as well

China is one of the largest holders of US debt currently (only Japan holds more US debt), and all they would have to do is tell the Administration that it would be such a shame if they weren't able to buy up US notes anymore when auctioned off by the US Treasury Dept.

And since I post like you do Rick-taking hard shots at the other side while doing more analysis than emotion for a particular post, and rather numerous profanities-I say don't change your style at all

If your post is well-written, people will still process it no matter how many other shots-hard, cheap or otherwise-you take at your opposition

So, while I'll disagree with much of your asides in this particular post, I completely agree with your overall point about there being, logically, NO military or nuclear strikes against Iran

And I thank you for making the soapbox available-via Comments-to all interested enough to share their views, as there can never be enough free speech

WHAT HAPPENED TO BROOKE?

The Telegraph in London is covering it. I thought it was a hoax, apparently NOT?
