President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated, on Wednesday, that Israel must be "wiped off the map " and "anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nations ' fury ".
This is the same kind of incendiary, downright stupid talk that George Bush has dribbled out of his mouth over the years, talking about crusades, evildoers, "bring it on " and other equally machismo-stupid assholisms.
When Bush talks that way, millions of his sappy religious right wing fanatical supporters shout hosannas and hallelujah. Millions! Ahmadinejad had thousands supporting him in the streets of Iran after his speech. Clearly, Bush has more assholistic neo-macho idiots than Iran 's president. Of course, in Iran, the demarcation between men and women is clearer. In the USA, the pseudo-macho, gun-toting, wimpy men in the religious right, who are terrified of the idea of women having equal rights, who oppose the very idea, are much more in need of ways to prove they are men, to prove they can piss further and that they 're bigger and stronger.
Fortunately, it appears that most of the people in Iran do not need to play those Freudian games. Apparently, in Israel, there are plenty of right wing fundamentalists who would be happy to engage in brinkmanship with Ahmadinejad, who are equally into pissing contests that could turn lethal.
Oh that we could put them all on the same small island, with nothing but their hands, minds and mouths to work it out. Just imagine --Bush, Cheney, DeLay, Frist, Saddam, Sharon, Netanyahu, Ahmadinejad, North Korea 's Kim Il Sung, Syria 's Bashar al Assad, Sheik Omar, Bin Laden, all the petty dictators, sheiks and tyrants spread through asia, the former-russia-stans, Africa, the middle east and south America. Throw in Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Sean Hannity, the kkk, neo-nazis, James Dobson and what the heck, all the people praying for the rapture and all the Mullahs spewing hate in the Madrassas and all the extremist rebbes teaching that Jews and Muslims will never make peace.. Let them sort out who tells who how to live, what to pray, who to admire. I think I 'm on to something here. On Easter Island, after they ate all the big game, and used up all the small game, they reverted to cannibalism. I hear fascists, tyrants and religious fanatics all taste like chicken.
