What Would People Think?

Won't This Man Ever Shut Up?

The bombing of one of Shiite Islam's most important sites was bad. The wave of sectarian violence and political chaos in the aftermath - leading to 138 Iraqi and 7 American deaths in two days - is worse.

Big question in my mind: who the hell bombed the Shiite site? My best guesses: either (1) stupid Sunni insurgents who just wanted to strike a blow against people they didn't like and didn't realize the consequences, or (2) terrorists working under Abu Musab Al Zarqawi, hoping to sow the seeds of chaos. The latter makes the most sense to me. They benefit from a failed Iraq, which would breed even more resentment against America and prove fertile ground for recruiting desperate, angry young Muslims to their terrorist cause.

But what's this? It appears Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had a theory about who's behind the bombing. Let's tune in and see what he has to say.

In Shiite-dominated Iran, the hard-line president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, blamed Israel and the Americans for the shrine bombing in a speech broadcast live on state television.

"These heinous acts are committed by a group of Zionists and occupiers that have failed," he said. "They have failed in the face of Islam's logic and justice."

.......um. Thanks, Mahmoud. That was helpful. You know what would be even more helpful? If you crawled back under whatever slimy rock you came from and poked yourself in the eyes repeatedly.

Could you do that for me? Thanks, I'd appreciate it.


  • The Douchebag strikes again.

    Seriously, what kind of executive assigns blame for an attack based on a preconceived notion in order to score political points?


    Next thing you know, Ahmadinejad is going to go to the UN and accuse the US of illegally stockpiling weapons of mosque destruction.

  • I think even if Ahmadinejad was under a rock poking himself in the eyes repeatedly, he still wouldn't shut up. But it'd have much more comedic value.
