Trigger Happy

Sometimes, the truth will just out.

Our own Aaron Burr shoots his hunting partner,

and it is the the guy who gets shot who gets the blame.

I come from a ranching family and let me assure you,

the basic rules of hunting are pretty clear.

You don't shoot the people or the dogs.

If you do,

you are a real idiot.

You never squeeze the trigger without seeing what you are shooting.


But, that is exactly what the Veep did in Iraq.

And, it is exactly what he is planning for Iran.

This is a message from the Force, from God, from the spirits,


these guys are total complete idiots.

And perhaps the press, and even the Republicans

will see that they are being led to slaughter by

a bunch of trigger happy goof balls.

Instead of defending this country, and the earth itself,

by developing the technologies that will remove our need for oil,

the guy who just shot a 78 year old semi sleeze bag Texan lawyer,

wants to pull the trigger on Iran too.

Here is the story in the Hindu Times.

U.S. plans devastating bombing of Iran's nuclear sites:
British paper

LONDON: American military experts are reported to be drawing up plans for an attack on Iran if it does not agree to a compromise on its controversial nuclear programme, according to a leading British newspaper.

In a front-page report under the headline, "U.S. prepares military blitz against Iran's nuclear sites,'' The Sunday Telegraph claimed that "devastating bombing raids'' against Iran's nuclear sites were planned as a "last resort'' to prevent Teheran from developing a nuclear bomb.

The raids would be "backed'' by submarine-launched ballistic missile attacks, it said. The report quoted a senior Pentagon adviser as saying the planning went beyond just contingency assessment.

"This is more than just the standard military contingency assessment... This has taken on much greater urgency in recent months,'' he said.

The newspaper said the U.S. Central Command and Strategic Command planners were "identifying'' targets in Iran, assessing weapon loads and working on the logistics of launching an attack. The experts, he said, were reporting to the office of Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

It said further: "The most likely strategy would involve aerial bombardment by long-distance B2 bombers, each armed with up to 40,000 lb of precision weapons, including the latest bunker-busting devices.

They would fly from bases in Missouri with mid-air refuelling.'' Though the Bush administration claims that it wants to resolve the issue through diplomatic means, it has never ruled out a military option.

Hawks in the administration and hardline Republicans are reported to be pressing for a military action. "

And here is the story in the Telegraph.

Much of Iran's oil lies in a very narrow strip next to Kuwait.

Taking these fields away from Iran is an obvious achievable objective,

Especially if you are a trigger happy goof ball that shoots without looking.

No one is safe as long as these guys have their fingers on a trigger.

Not even their friends.

Ask Harry.

Stunningly accurate analogy--the "accident" with official carelessness that resulted in a war of international proportions.

Interesting way of placing yesterday's events near Corpus by way of metaphor. Consilient even.

Is it just me, or does the VP get into trouble and subsequently make headlines everytime he gears up for "fun" in the brush? From Scalia to this past weekend's accident, the guy needs to just lay down the firearms and pick up golf, pilates, or laser tag.

It gives one an opportunity to think on what it must be like to be Cheney. Can you imagine the psychological pressure of bagging more quail than some lawyer from Austin? How self-involved must one be, so bent on a successful excursion, to angle-lead without line of sight as to the direction of one's shot, only to shoot a fellow hunter in the face.

Anyway, this headline happens to correspond with me reading Rieff's book, _At the point of a gun: Democratic dreams and armed intervention_. I suggest it, because, if nothing else, it really gets to the heart of force and coercion, only to foment debate.

I was awiting this post sine hearing of the news yesterday. Per the usual, I was not disappointed.

You never pull the trigger unless you are shooting at a lawyer?
Maybe Dick needs glasses? Or maybe they drank a little too much prior to the hunt?

If we leave the job in Iran to the Isralies they are going to be hard pressed to pull off a raid. Iran has lots of MIG-28's which are equal to what the Jews have. They also have 30,000 or so surface to air missiles from Russia and China. It would seem to me that any air strike is going to be very bloody on both sides. The Isralie Air force actually can't reac the targets without refueling and their tankers are old and outdated. The Newsweek article put them going in via the Indian Ocean so they willl have to stop at a U.S. base to refuel.

It is all pretty dicey.

Love the "don't shoot the people or the dogs" line - and the "ask Harry".

I'd be laughing more if this guy wasn't running the country and getting ready to take us to the brink with Iran.

Charlie Rose has been talking about Iran for the last two nights.

I saw glimpses during the Olympic commercials, but he interviewed the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. the night before last and then last night a counter-terrorist coordinator was building up the case against Iran.

The P.R. machine is rolling.
