Gosh, what a tragedy. I guess it wouldn’t be sporting, if a bunch of academics didn’t publicly broadcast our intentions. It’s a good thing these guys didn’t get access to the actual OPORD.

You know, if President Bush were really smart, he would follow President Lincoln’s political example at the outset of the Civil War by provoking the Iranians into declaring war on us and then in turn blasting them with everything we’ve got.
