While I can see the reasoning behind it, I don’t like comparing Bush to a chimp. Chimps are intelligent creatures, capable of acquiring a Kindergarten level of education, after all, and seem to care about their fellow chimps.
But monkeyboy’s got a bad case of the stupids.
In his ridiculous interview with Brian Williams he made the outrageous claim that US military morale is “high” — and now, as the NY Times reports, he seems to think he’s in a position to threaten Iran.
“There must be consequences for Iran’s defiance,” he said, “and we must not allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapons.” [sic]
He’s trying to conflate Iran with “tur’rism”, trying to push — yet again — the same tired rhetoric he’s been slinging in re Iraq and even Afghanistan.
With Afghanistan it almost made sense,* but in ’02, when Iraq began coming up, I had doubts about the legitimacy of his intentions. By the time the invasion began I was pretty sure we were being lied to.
And now Iran.
Is anyone dumb enough to buy this any more?
Hey, George: We don’t have the troops, and we want our boys and girls to come home before you end up reinstituting the draft to further your wretched “biggest boy in the schoolyard” ambitions. So shut the fuck up, already.
* What doesn’t and has never made sense to me is why we didn’t stop with Afghanistan, get a good democracy going there, maybe make them our friends. Then we’d have had a pretty good, stable launching point to help stabilize the rest of the region, should it become necessary. The list of wasted opportunities that is the Bush legacy is nearly as hideous as the vicious horror the administration has foisted upon the world.
