Thanks for the ping Calpernia.
Any conservative so Pollyannic as to be optimistic about 2007 risks comparison to the folks being crucified in the Monty Python movie The Life of Brian while cheerily singing, "Always look on the bright side of life."
But so far, so good. We're off to a great start. For openers, at the very moment Bush was giving his speech last night, in which he promised to "seek out and destroy" the networks of Iran and Syria supporting insurgency in Iraq, five US helicopters landed on the consulate of Iran in Arbil, Iraqi Kurdistan, disgorging US soldiers who told the Iranian occupants in three languages to surrender or be killed.
They proceeded to seize all the consulate's computers and documents, then turned the building over to Kurdish "Peshmerga" security forces.
Now that is cool. And Bush has just begun.
If not sustained -- this could be simply posturing for the peanut gallery.
I suspect posturing....
Praying they'll prove me wrong by unleashing the dogs of war against the bastards in every direction by every means..
Nuke me now, but first pack it in a really big suppository. I know the way I would most enjoy martyrdom.
Time to shake and bake.
Reciprocity is a beautiful thing in light of the treatment our embassys received from Iran.
Bump and ping.
