There is an unbelievable quote at Regime Change Iran
(hat tip Adventures of Chester) from the Secretary of the Iranian Security Council, Hasan Rouhani. He thinks the U.S. does not have the ability to attack Iran!!!
Here is the comment I posted there…
“It's spinach time! Everyone who is familiar with Popeye the Sailor knows where we are.
"I've had all that I can stands, I can't stands no more"!
So we should give the residents of the city (surrounding their 1/2 mile deep tunnel for their enrichment centrifuges) 24 hours to get out of "Dodge" and then turn it into a nuclear cinder! Then we can talk. And if the mullahs lack imagination, we can re-broadcast "Indiana Jones" and let them see us laugh as the crazed scimitar wielding, turban wearing nutcase get a .45 slug through the heart.”
It might help if you read my previous posts in chronological order #1
, #3 (it's about North Korea but applies to Iran also)
, & #6.
I’ve tried to be reasonable. Even offered “Atoms for Peace”! But the message has not gotten through. So for the last time, I recommend they read the story of Colonel Benjamin Foster and the men of Machias, Maine here & here.
Update 3/7/05 6:17 AM -
I noticed that I had failed to include a reference to the tunnel post at Regime Change Blog
. Here is the partial text of my comment there (with minor corrections)...
"Impervious to bunker busters? Since Iran is evidently intent on using nuclear blackmail against the whole world as represented by the UN, why not use silo-busters? As in Trident-2 D-5, MARV equipped, SLBMs? Why wait until we face a nuclear oponent while we currently face an asymmetric war with all the advantages?
1)We always end up doing the UN's dirty business anyway.
2)We've already toasted two cities, Hiroshima & Nagasaki.
3)We'll kill fewer people than the Tutsis in Rwanda (or was it the Hutus?).
4)It is easier to ask for forgiveness, than for permission.
5)The number of Americans exposed to hostile fire will be zero.
6) The incremental cost will be zero.
7) And we can always use Iran's oil to buy off the Russians, Chinese & French!"
P.S. The last thing the Iranians want George W. Bush to say is...
