Replace ‘Iran’ with ‘Israel’

That’s a tweet sent Monday from the official account of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, noteworthy not only for its cocksure hypocrisy — it’s Israel that continues to produce nukes without so much as a strongly worded email  from the alleged international community — but for its casually bold new charge against the Islamic Republic of Iran: that it not only desires a nuclear weapon, but is already busy making them.

Coincidentally, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports today:

The intelligence assessment Israeli officials will present later this week to [top U.S. general Martin] Dempsey indicates that Iran has not yet decided whether to make a nuclear bomb.”

Someone ought to send that there assessment on over to the prime minister’s office.

    That's pretty cocksure for a blog post, buddy.

    Yeah, WTF? Aren't blogs supposed to parrot the official line and not mention inconvenient facts? What kind of journalistic standards do you hold to, anyways? (not MSM ones, that's for sure!)

    Well I guess they could blow each other up and problems are solved quickly.

  4. So we should simply wipe out all the Jews and pat ourselves on the back? That will be a tough program to sell to the world outside of the far far left and right.
