Let’s Bomb Iran. Please.

[ed. note: I reposted this because for some reason, the first posting ended up being “Comments Off.” I don’t know how I did that, much less how to fix it. But here’s the post again in case anyone wanted to comment on it.] 

Haleh Esfandiari, a 67 year-old Iranian-American scholar and grandmother, has been imprisoned in Iran’s notorious Evin prison on charges of trying to subvert or “soft-topple” Iran’s Islamic government.  Yeah, whatever.  Translation: she dares to encourage the world to treat women humanely and give people the right to vote.

Esfandiari works as the director of the Middle East Program at The Smithsonian’s Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.  She went back to Iran to visit her ailing 93 year-old mother, and on the way to the airport for her flight back to the U.S., was robbed.  When she applied for new paperwork to leave the country, she was detained for four months and questioned exhaustively, with no representation of course, by Iran’s intellingence ministry (what an amazing coincidence: she was robbed of her way out in a seemingly mundane hold-up, and then taken into custody and interrogated for over 50 hours by government officials!).  She was then escorted to Evin prison by masked men carrying knives.  So right away, you know everything is on the up-and-up.

Ms. Esfindiari has been working, in the United States, to promote democracy and women’s rights in the Middle East.  For obvious reasons, this threatens the Religion of Peace and its totalitarian thugs in Iran.  So they arrest her and throw her in prison as soon as they have the chance.  Why aren’t Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Gore and Alec Baldwin, and all the other self-anointed socially- and politically-conscious princes of America, clamoring for her release?  For that matter, why isn’t Bush?  C’mon, Dubs, get on it. 

I have always supported the war in Iraq, and I still do.  But if there’s one criticism I have, it’s that we should’ve bombed the living bejesus out of Iran first.  Every time he gets in front of a microphone, Ahmadinejad promises the destruction of America and Israel.  He won a major victory this year when a group of British soldiers acted like the spineless cowards Muslims dream we all are.  And now, apparently, he is imprisoning American citizens with impunity.  So how is George W. Bush any better than ol’ Jellyfish Jimmy Carter?  I suppose that remains to be seen.

I, for one, am waiting for an American leader who will tell these filthy, backwards, tyrannical sons of bitches to shove their theocratic ambitions where the sun doesn’t shine.  If they want to hold American citizens as political prisoners and hostages, if they send terrorists against American soldiers in foreign countries, fine.  We’ll bomb them back to the stone age they so passionately want to impose upon everyone else.  No more of this kind, humane, door-to-door warfare that risks the lives of our soldiers: we’ll bomb the living shit out of their cities, Hiroshima-style.  I’m betting they wouldn’t be so big and tough then. 

 But that isn’t going to happen; at least, not until one of our cities is nuked.  Because apparently, no one has the balls to deal with these crazy, camel-screwing soldiers of Allah.  I read an article today about how Nancy Reagan misses her husband more than ever.  Mrs. Reagan, so do I.

    I didn’t support the war with Iraq much for this reason. We should have gone into Iran first.
