Bunker busters

Well, now according to Seymour Hersh of The New Yorker, Bush is planning to initiate nuclear war with Iran.

Great idea! I want to be one of the first to get behind this plan. After all, the only thing that can make our silk purse of a world even better would be to allow a President with a self-acknowledged messianic complex to initiate unprovoked nuclear war. It's the big prize we've all been waiting for. "Canticle for Leibowitz," here we come.

Sweet merciful Jesus.

Apparently the administration has already been briefing some members of Congress on the plan, and true to form, they've basically shrugged their shoulders and gone back to taking bribes from lobbyists. Reminds me of Tyler Durden's description of the people on airline safety cards: "Calm as Hindu cows."

I've said it before and I'll say it again: we richly deserve everything that's coming to us.

I don't deserve this. Not yet.

And my two week old son did nothing to deserve a limited nuclear war in the middle east.

Ummm...I've done nothing to further world peace or total disarmament today, other than blogging - but I never asked for armageddon either.
