After reading Battle Groups Head For Persian Gulf by Big Gav, I posted a comment on his blog displaying my incredulity at a statement made by a WorlNutDaily author who said:
Neither the president of the United States nor the prime minister of Israel want to find out that the mullahs have nuclear weapons by seeing a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv.I could not believe that somebody could possibly make the same rhetorical mistakes that occurred before the current Iraq war started -- something along the lines of "But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud / Condi Rice".
But then a day later, the author's name finally registered, Jerome Corsi, author of the anti-Kerry Swift Boat book and all around bomb-thrower (and currently the vice president of development and senior editor of U.S. Financial Marketing Group, i.e. I have no clue what he actually does). In that case, anything he says requires immediate disposal into the great bit-bucket in the sky. Like this:
But, if all else fails, we have three nuclear-armed carrier battle groups in the region that are more than capable of resolving the problem.
I suggest, given Corsi's excitement over this turn of events, that he sign up for the Slim Picken's role.
