It Would Be the Worst Kind of Bittersweet....

Report: Obama to offer Israel 'Nuclear Umbrella' Against Iran

Interesting quote from this short article.

"Who will convince the citizen in Kansas that the U.S. needs to get mixed up in a nuclear war because Haifa was bombed? And what is the point of an American response, after Israel's cities are destroyed in an Iranian nuclear strike?," he said.


I used to live in Kansas so I guess he's asking me. Well, my first thought was, if Haifa is bombed and Israel somehow destroyed in a nuclear assault, it would give us a pretty good excuse to turn that whole dreadful place into a sheet of glass. A very oily sheet of glass.

But the girl from Kansas forgot that she is also a child of God. That "whole dreadful place" is where God planted all of his most precious seeds. I theorize that the devil has a good deal to gain by bubbling up through the sand in the middle east. Spreading lies through false religions and convincing humanity to destroy itself. He takes what we love, the sacred places where Christ walked, and poisons them with religions and governments who thrive and are spread by bloodshed and oppression, and in our desire to stop the insanity we end up strapping a bomb to the chest of our history and destroying the birthplace of our spirits.

Imagine making a pilgrimage to a giant oily sheet of glass, where the brutal unforgiving sun reflects off of the old foundations where the all of the most sacred temples once stood. Where only the roaches are left to worship?

I guess that's why this girl from Kansas cares about Haifa. But I do understand what he's saying. What's the point of an American response after Israel's cities are destroyed in an Iranian nuclear attack? What's the point of anything after that? It would just be suicidal vengeance.

Nigel: OK Mr. (or Ms.) Anonymous commenter. I fixed the spelling errors. Don't be such a dick about it next time.

Keep praying that The Mossad has a man on the inside there in Tehran waiting for his cue to eliminate the Grand Mullah.

Personally I'm in favor of a pre-emptive strike.

In...like...the next 6 weeks.

Nigel (love your blog by the way), it's a little scary that someone who is home-schooling her children doesn't know how to spell the word Israel! Maybe Ms. stay-at-home mom should just post more pics of herself in tight t-shirts instead. You might get more readers that way... :)

Anonymous...I posted this comment to defend Michele...who are you?! Make a name up so we can refer to you.

I can guarantee that Michele DOES know how to spell Israel. If you go through all her old posts, I'd challenge you to find 3 more misspellings. I don't know what happened.

But I do agree...more tight t-shirt shots are good for this POC blog. Maybe I'll post one of me! (My boobs are bigger than hers)
