Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb Bomb Iran... Before It's Too Late
"The Most Requested Song in the United States", according to Billboard, in 1980 for several weeks was written by my personal favorite DJ of all time when he was working up in Anchorage. Tom Rivers penned the immortal tune of...
It's pretty obvious that the Beach Boys' Barbara Ann becomes an easy target to be parodied as Bomb Iran:
Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran...
And the memorable:
We're gonna rock the Ayatollah, sock the Ayatollah, bomb Iran.
The situation in Iran has changed considerably since the Hostage Crisis of 30 years ago. The Ayatollah is long gone and in his place is the criminal terrorist moron Mahmoud (Nutjob) Ahmadinejad (who nobody is going to convince me wasn't one of the hostage holders as he is clearly recognizable in the photos from the US Embassy)... and if anything it's gotten much crazier than it was back then.
We now have a lunatic regime in Tehran which not only has been repulsed by any legitimate world government, but even by the majority of its own people. Yet it clings to power by the typical strategy of tyrants throughout history, by presenting a vicious and imminent threat to its neighbors in order to deflect any internal opposition.
That's why it's time to pull that old Tom Rivers cassette out of the attic.
How can I possibly advocate the bombing of Iran? Most of the Iranians I know personally are wonderful, salt of the earth, devout, ethical, and lovely people. Heck, one of my best writing clients is Iranian, he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, and he has returned from a visit to his homeland just a few weeks ago. I would absolutely be aghast at the thought that he or any other innocent civilian would be hurt or killed in any foreign bombing action.
However, I am sure that my client wasn't hanging around Iran's nuclear plant in Bushehr (interesting how they managed to fit Bush in there) or any major military bases, and unfortunately the time has come to stop Iran from its mad path of destruction. The Karrar long range drone can easily transport a nuclear weapon to Israel or to any American ships in the Persian Gulf or eastern Med, thus it has to be stopped and it has to be stopped right now.
No, not next week, next month or next year. Right freakin' now.
The policy of the Obama Administration is one of appeasement leading to coma, thus the crazies are running away with the global pies: Hugo Chavez is threatening Colombia and the US on a daily basis; Venezuela and Iran now have the direct "Terror Airlines" flights between their territories so that Iranian terrorists and materiel can now, with total impunity, travel within easy striking distance of Miami; and don't get me started on North Korea.
The solution is simple: A superpower has to act like one and not fall into the Marxist stupor of inactivity and lack of leadership only to be awakened by 9/11 Part Deux, or Tel Aviv becoming a glassy, radioactive crater.
The USA has to be proactive on preventing the immolation of Israel. There is no time for debate, argument or counterpoints. Iran must be stopped and it will take bloodshed. This is not a religious Christian vs. Muslim neo-Crusade issue. Iran would need to be stopped if their state religion was Buddhist, Mormon, or Rasta.
If the Marxist President of the USA cannot take this decision as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, then he must be impeached and or deposed by any non-violent, legal, constitutional, and ethical means necessary
