A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Condi is an idiot... 

The administration has been using the same methodology to provoke a conflict with Iran and they did with Iraq. Now, it's about Iran's nuclear program which Iran insists is for domestic power and the administration, and Tim Russert, insist is a pretext for nuclear weapon ambitions.

Additionally, the leadership of Iran has been portrayed as, shall we say, a little unhinged. Not to mention extremists who cannot be trusted with nuclear weapons and are religious zealots who promote terroism. All in all, a pretty bad bunch of guys of whom we must be deathly afraid.

So today, in an ratcheting up of tensions, Iran's religious leader threatened that an attack on Iran would lead to a disruption of the world supply of oil, most of which flows through the narrow Straights of Hurmuze which borders Iran. A tactic deployed successfully in the past.

When the brainiac Condi was asked whether this threat should be taken seriously, she was condescendlingly dismissive. Of course they won't do that because their country is dependent on oil for its economy. No mention that they've done it before and unhinged, religious zealots never, ever carry out the threats they make.

So, first we demonize the leadership of Iran as unstable and who cannot be trusted and then cavalierly dismiss a threat to the world's economy by suggesting these religious zealots will no doubt take the rational approach.
