What is a four-letter word for bad news?
Right now we’re playing a game of chicken with these infidels, which is a tad more dangerous than playing a game of cards with your Aunt Matilda.
We’re ramping up the sanctions on the Iranians because we don’t want their itchy trigger fingers anywhere near a nuclear bomb. Israel, of course, concurs.
The Iranians are less than pleased, of course. So they’re bluffing (we hope) that they’ll close the Strait of Hormuz, through which a third of the world’s oil exports pass.
Blocking that artery could trigger economic heart attacks and light the fuse on a war that we pray won’t erupt into your basic everyday Armageddon End Times Powder Keg of Mass Destruction and Death.
Such a scenario understandably would put a crimp in everyone’s evening.
Yep, U.S. diplomacy had better work before we have to choose between accepting Iran with a bomb or having to bomb Iran.
You won’t find a pillow to squeeze between that rock and a hard place.
