There’s no way I can top Orrin Judd’s description of this story: “Talk about two birds with one stone!”
It’s notable that all the “human shields” left Iraq once they knew the bombs were actually about to drop. Talk is cheap.
its like the islamist taunt that westerners love life whereas the islamists love death…
yeah dude, and we’ll both be happy if you just step a bit to the left so that I can center you in my scope
but, as monty python demonstrated, suicide squads aren’t typically all that bright!
Call the Unexploded Iranian Squad!
Actually, most of the human shields left Iraq after seeing what a brutal SOB Saddam was and being asked to shield military installations.
More than a few came back pro-war.
In that respect — I saw a claim last night that 10 out of 12 U.S. aircraft carriers are currently at sea, the other two being totally out of it (one refit, one refueling). In fairly desultory searching I wasn’t able to confirm or deny the story. Someone who isn’t on dial-up may be able to.
The guy who posted the story suggested that people should go short on Iranian nuclear and petroleum futures…
Re the carriers- that’s pretty typical, from what I’ve heard. US carriers are nuclear-powered and the fuel rods tend to be replaced during the refits. The things that need refueling are the jets, not the carrier itself.
Will, I think Conrad the Gweilo’s take gives Judd’s description a run for his money:
