It's too bad this isn't a joke

This is an actual t-shirt that is selling at . If it was a joke, it would still scare me, but look at the text that is printed with the information on the shirt:

At this point, there are few courses of action that could
save Iran. Maybe Ahmadinejad will give up his quest
for nuclear weapons. Not likely. Or maybe the young
people in Iran, who realize what he is doing to their
country, will overthrow the little terrorist dictator and
save the day. I’m not holding my breath on that one
either. Well shoot…that pretty much leaves us with the
third option, as illustrated on this shirt!

I wish conservatives would learn from the failures in Iraq. It's not enough to talk tough. You need to talk to people as well. Diplomacy is an option, and it's one we haven't tried at all. I hope that we at least have one civil discussion before we bomb Iran. Furthermore, we need to have good intelligence, which we didn't have on Iraq and which we don't seem to have on Iran either. Why don't Bush and Ahmadinejad go have coffee and discuss the needs of the two countries? It might be beneficial; however, I don't think that Bush can pronounce Ahmadinejad. Oh well!

BTW, my blog has turned away from politics, so I plan on posting my political rants here and linking back on my blog. Since I'm on the banner, I need to hold up my end of the outhouse.



  • Diplomacy hasn't been tried "at all" with Iran?? For three years the EU, with support from the US, tried diplomacy with Ahmadinejad. Three years of talking was rewarded only with continued "concealment and deception" by Iran.

    And "good intelligence" isn't even an issue here. We have on-the-spot reporting from the IAEA, and Ahmadinejad himself brazenly shows off Iran's nuclear capabilities, like the heavy-water reactor in Arak, or the 3,000 centrifuges in Natanz. Ahmadinejad is not even in the least trying to be coy about his country's nuclear ambitions: Iran will "quickly become an invincible global soon as it achieves advanced technologies".

    So just what should Bush & Ahmadinejad discuss when they "go have coffee", pray tell? Will Bush try to convince Ahmadinejad that the 12th Imam isn't coming anytime soon, so that there's no need to "pave the way" for him by triggering a "final war" between Muslims and the West? Shall Bush ask pretty please for Iran to have its butchering proxy in Lebanon, Hamas, refrain from trying to destroy the democratically elected government; to stop provoking a Palestinian civil war between Hamas and Fatah, and to stop blowing up American troops (not to mention Iraqi civilians) by supplying Shi'a insurgents in Iraq?

    Perhaps Bush can simply concede Iran's nuclear ambitions and come home from the coffee talk with a worthless piece of parchment declaring "peace in our time". He can even throw in the Sudetenlands for good measure.

    Let's be clear here: the Iranian government openly states its goals: "Iran's going nuclear will change the balance of power in the region", permitting them to launch a "Great War" that, for starters, will result in Israel being "wiped off the face of the earth".

    Obviously the seller of this t-shirt is writing in jest; such gallows humor is often offensive to many. But how sad that an online t-shirt salesman apparently understands the essential nature of the Iranian regime far better than most liberals do.

    Talking? Ahmadinejad has been talking up a storm, but many Americans are simply refusing to listen.
