Quel Suprise! The French Pussy Out… January 15, 2006, 2:09 am

Remind me to not be shocked the next time I was actually expecting some strength from our French allies and they fold faster than, well…the French army in 1939. Sheesh:

Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei, said France’s priority for now is convening a special session of the International Atomic Energy Agency to refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council.

The Security Council could decide to sanction Iran. But Mattei did not prejudge what action the council might take.

He said France, Britain and Germany regard the issue of sanctions as being “premature for the moment.”

“We’ll see what happens at the Security Council,” he said in a telephone interview. “One step at a time.”

Here, allow me to illustrate:

Step 1) Iran gets the bomb

Step 2) Iran uses the bomb against Israel

Step 3) Europe pretends to be shocked; US forced to respond

Step 4) And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood, etc., etc.

Am I close on this one? Cause I feel like I’m gettin’ warm.

Why are people not taking this more seriously? I mean, I like the END OF THE WORLD as much as the next guy, but I thought I might want get laid a few more times before that happens.

Step 1) Iran gets the bomb

Step 2) Iran does not use the bomb against Israel because Israel already has the bomb and attack back ensuring Mutually Assured Destruction – MAD has prevailed and kept the peace since the Soviets got their bomb.

Step 3) Because Iran has the bomb the US abandons it’s plans to invade and the world experiences a bit of peace for a while.

Step 4) Guys like you get to complain about something else for a while

Two things:

1) the principle of MAD only works when both sides want to live more than they want to die, so that doesn’t actually apply here.

2) you probably haven’t kept up on President Ahmadinejad’s utterances lately. This guy wants to cause the end of the world to pave the way for the Mahdi to come back. Here’s an article from the UK Telegraph:
“All streams of Islam believe in a divine saviour, known as the Mahdi, who will appear at the End of Days. A common rumour – denied by the government but widely believed – is that Mr Ahmadinejad and his cabinet have signed a “contract” pledging themselves to work for the return of the Mahdi and sent it to Jamkaran.

Iran’s dominant “Twelver” sect believes this will be Mohammed ibn Hasan, regarded as the 12th Imam, or righteous descendant of the Prophet Mohammad.

He is said to have gone into “occlusion” in the ninth century, at the age of five. His return will be preceded by cosmic chaos, war and bloodshed. After a cataclysmic confrontation with evil and darkness, the Mahdi will lead the world to an era of universal peace.”

It’s that “preceded by cosmic chaos, ware and bloodshed” part that makes me distrust him with nukes. This guy wants to bring the world to an end and he thinks that he is the bloody prophet tasked with doing it.

Christ, Q, it pains me to say this, but you have a valid point, rational behavior and Iran are mutually exclusive, like you and pussy. Let’s hope the good Lord works his magic on both cases.

Let’s instead hope that all the silly little people with their silly little religions based upon silly little ancient books wake up one day very soon and decide to start thinking logically, rationally and scientifically for once in their pitiful lives. Just one of the many benefits of this change would be the peaceful coexistence of all nations in the middle east. No real beef exists between these people, they just have to be smart enough to figure that out.
