“Looking for trouble and i want to get loud”

Reality not violent enough for neo-cons 

The title of one of today’s op-eds; a rare quality op-ed in the local paper.  I’m sure you’ve heard: the British sailors captured by Iran were released unharmed as an “easter present.”  The basic gist of the article was, well, that’s cool – who doesn’t like it when people, especially our allies, come out alive and well.

Oh.  Right.  The neo-cons don’t like it.  We should have bombed Tehran while we had an excuse.  Why?  Newt Gingrich says it’s to “show the planet that you’re tiny and we’re not.”  Well, that seems reasonable.

From the article: “If Iran won a propaganda victory, it’s important to recognize it wasn’t British capitulation that made it easy, it was American tough guys.”  The propaganda victory he’s referring to is along the lines of, “hey, we did something nice (we did something not-so-nice first, but no one is really sure whether that was our fault or Britan’s) and we’re even going to respect your religion (take a hint, asshole?).”
