Bombs and Blowhards

It is my understanding that President Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu will speak this week regarding the deal with Iran.  They are on opposite sides of the debate.  Apparently, Mr. Netanyahu will be speaking not to his own people but directly to the American Jewish Community.  I am fascinated by the idea that the leader of another country feels he can interject himself between a president and his countrymen and women; but then this particular leader attempted to influence our elections in 2012 and has made it clear, at least in my estimation, that the needs of his nation supersede the needs of ours.  Further, he has taken for granted that our elected officials in the brothel that was once Congress will put his demands ahead of any demands or considerations of the electorate that put them in office.  I submit that this would not be the case if two things weren’t true.  First, Obama’s face is BLACK.  To my way of thinking, this is plain, old-fashioned, garden variety racism thinly veiled behind the presumption of Antisemitism.  Second, the disrespect, cruelty and outright hatred that has been offered to this president from every quarter of the Republic – inside the Beltway and out, north, south, east and west, from the political class to the media, from Cable to the internet – has given Netanyahu permission to treat the sitting 44th President of the United States like a ceremonial figurehead.  Well done America.

What I find most interesting in all of this bomb business is that one major fact has been overlooked, swept under the carpet and shoved aside.  If either Netanyahu of Israeli or Rouhani of Iran decided to play “Whose Dick is Bigger” and start exchanging nukes like valentines, it would devastate the entire Middle East.  Much of the world would be affected.  We aren’t talking about localized bombing raids, like Dresden or London during the Blitz.  We are talking about Hiroshima and Nagasaki and what would have happened to the world if Japan had been able to return the strike. 

It is bad enough that one paranoid xenophobe already has the bomb.  If the Iranian deal goes down Rouhani and his lot can proceed to make their nuclear nightmare a reality right now.  There is some question that the rest of the world, well past our bullying by the by, would continue to engage in sanctions.  Could we expect Iran not to spend her increased revenue on a nuclear arsenal? Israel has one after all.

Einstein said, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”  My Constitutionally protected advice to all those who lust after nuclear weapons or the opportunity to use them is, “Put your dicks back in your pants boys and understand the nature of your toys.”
