Ahmadinejad Cancels US/UN Trip

Provocative.

Because Iran recently declared it might begin kidnapping Western soldiers in retaliation for tis missing generals. And it declared it might resort to "illegal" methods of resistance if the UNSC votes against it.

And of course Iran seized 15 British sailors in a capture that seems an awful lot like a set-up (where did the Iranian Navy come from, all of a sudden?).

Allah thought this must have just been a mistake about where Iran's territorial waters actually began, thinking that Ahamadinejad wouldn't have told his Navy to take some hostages just as he's heading to New York to make his case to the UN.

But now he's not coming. So maybe it was planned.

It makes sense, though. Provoking the British, who have been very reluctant to endorse military strikes against Iran. And doing so further by challenging them on the high seas.

Good strategy. More or less the sort of thing I'd expect from these psychopaths.

It ain't 1979 any more, chums.

Iran seems to be all but begging for a full-on shooting war. They think that Bush is too politically wounded to respond in kind, and our forces too stretched out in Iraq to touch them.

This is a grave miscalculation. Is far as I know, the Air Force and Navy are not seriously overtaxed conducting security sweeps in Baghdad.

And Americans don't have much patience for ground combat. But we do loves us some shock and awe airstrikes.

Thanks to a-a for the tip.


Good News All Around: Attacks via explosively formed penetrators are down dramatically since the surge began, and since US troops, coincidentally, began detaining Iranian agents in Iraq.

At some point there will be undeniable evidence that Iran is killing US soldiers.

And that will be that.

I don't think this is just bluster on my part. Air power cannot seize territory per se, and it can't capture enemy leaders. But it can all but destroy a country's economy and its governments capacity to rule.
