Tom Knapp has a cool, dispassionate analysis of why it would be batshit fucking insane for us to attack Iran.
Shithouse rat crazy doesn’t even begin to cover the state of mind required to entertain this kind of thing. Throw in the trial balloons about preemptive nuclear strikes — on a country bordering Russia — and it’s pretty much a David Lynch production of Dr. Strangelove Meets Sybil. We’re talking serious childhood trauma combined with a rigorous schedule of psychoactive drugs and BDSM sessions here.
Not that there’s anything wrong with BDSM or psychoactive drugs. Read the whole thing, it’s worth a laugh. Remember, if we don’t laugh, we cry.
