No Jokes Just Yet, Other Than The NYT Op-Ed Page
Yes, kids — today the NYT Op-Ed hits a perfect Idiocy Trifecta. First Krugman, then Kristof, and now Shibley Telhami. In a bit called “The Need for Prudence in the Persian Gulf,” Telhami writes: “…a reduction of American military forces in Saudi Arabia is politically inevitable. A drastic change like a complete withdrawal of forces is unlikely. But a force reduction is prudent as both nations assess their relations.”
The people in the Gulf needing to display some prudence are the three-timing, terrorist-funding, Quron-defiling House of Saud. How about we reduce their military presence and run the damn oil wells ourselves?
