As ya'll know by now, the right wing Puppetshow (aka, the John Locke Foundation) doesn't allow commentary on their statewide blogs. They do, however, have some local blogs that I visit from time to time to see what the Puppet munchkins are up to. It's occasionally enlightening, sometimes amusing, and mostly scary. For example, take this missive (please) from one Zeb Wright in Wilmington.
The Washington Post is featuring a troubling article discussing the likelihood that if Iran were to be attacked, they would most likely dispatch Hezbollah operatives to carry out acts of terror. Yeah, yeah, I know we are going to pursue all diplomatic options. Obviously, as stated in the article, if the US were to take part in a pre-emptive strike as part of a larger coalition and Iran was to dispatch terrorist operatives to attack the US or it’s interest, it would be the quickest escalation to full scale war you can imagine.
For all of those folks who are tired of the Iraq War, if this situation in Iran goes hot, you haven’t seen anything yet. I truly do hope solutions can be reached through diplomatic channels, particularly with Russia and China applying pressure to Iran.
I am so sick of having to explain what we are doing in Iraq and the Middle East to folks stuck in pre-9/11 mentality. All the naysayers seem to be MSM consumers unable to hear an alternative.
I'll just bet old Zeb is sick of having to explain what we're doing in Iraq. That happens when what you're explaining makes no damn sense. If we ever hear from Mr. Wright, I'll bet he'll say we're fighting them over there so we won't have to fight them over here and the freedom is on the march and that 'Merica is stronger and more secure because we're busy starting World War III.
So stop by and call bullshit on Zeb Wright. Lord knows he needs some site traffic.
PS I'm sorry I criticized the Puppetshow for not allowing comments. I understand their reluctance. It would be like taking the top off the barrel of fish.
