no shortage of blow hards
krista and i are down at tryst and i'm overhearing two chicken hawks discussing iraq, iran and other foreign events. it's pretty funny to hear people who's outlook is so divergent from reality.
- exporting democracy is nothing like exporting a boeing 7E7. uh, actually it is. you think you can just fly one of those babies in, park it, and then wait for an airline to emerge spontaneously you'll be surprised. who's going to fuel it, repair it, fly it, order spare parts for it. who's going to train those people. a complex system relies on external infrastructure.
- they're talking about how we should do what ever we can to sabotage iran. great idea guys. i guess you forgot that iran has an army. you want to see an insurgency with real foreign fighters, start fucking around with iran. our little war in iraq has made clear to the rest of the world exactly what our limits are.
- one guy starts talking about how he's working on a piece for the hoover institute and then some story for the ny times review.
- the only think that they've said that i can agree with is they both seem to expect bush's social security changes to be a total mess.
as the poorman says there's only one good title for people like this: wanker.
