Iran Delenda Est

Monday, 12 November 2007

My old man knows more than me. We had lunch and he expanded on a recent email of his about the realities of might and right and coming threats to the economy in the form of deflation.

I’ve summarized these ideas here, mostly in my own words.

When you’re the big dog on the block (USA), you’re going to get challenged. By necessity a leader must be able and willing to bully and punish others, if he wants to stay the leader.

Why is the dollar weakening? Lack of confidence. Why is there a lack of confidence? Because Bush says the right things but doesn’t back them up, and other countries, perceiving weakness (Osama called the USA a “paper tiger”) are emboldened.

The noodle-spined and UN just make things worse. The Founding Fathers knew firsthand that no matter what, about 33% of the population is going to be against whatever’s going on. We can’t risk losing everything because people who have never went hungry even a day in their lives find war “uncomfortable”.

Of the Axis of Evil (North Korea, Iran, Iraq) we should’ve invaded Iran first. We didn’t and from that perspective, even the Iraq invasion was perceived as weakness, like only beating up the sidekick of the main opponent.

Machiavelli said: …it is better to be feared than loved.

Our next move should be sending 100 F-22 Raptors over Iran to take out every last one of their military installations. Remember I told you, China now uses one-half of the world’s supply of concrete and one-third of the steel. They’re not about to slow down, and Russia is in real danger of falling back into Soviet-style tyranny. Fucking Putin wants to be another Lenin.

(I mention to Pops that Russia’s declining birth rate leaves them especially vulnerable to invasion by China…earlier Pops had reminded me that China could take over any nation they wanted by simply marching civilians into it).

If you lived in a shithole (like Russia) would you want to bring 3 or 4 children into the world? That’s why all the Eastern Europeans are coming here (to America) to work at Wal-Mart.

Attacking Iran will remind Russia and China that we are crazy motherf–kers capable of anything. We may also have to stop all Chinese imports to especially remind them who is still the big dog. In which case Wal-Mart will be 80% empty.

It all comes down to commitment. If the British had sent 250,000 soldiers instead of only 50,000, the American Revolution would’ve been short lived.

Teddy Roosevelt was a great man. “Speak softly but carry a big stick” is as true today as it was nearly a century ago.
