This is terrible, just terrible. Those Iranians, not fair, not fair! They are giving the Brits back to us and as far as we know they have not been water boarded, punched in the face, bitten by dogs or stacked like naked sardines. This is a disgrace to the dignity of the western world, an insult to the dignity of England, which surely reflects on the virility of Americans everywhere. Not fair, not fair.

I ask you, if we cannot terrorize the Iranians who can we terrorize? But buck-up m’laddies our virulent, er, I mean virile and manly military leaders are on top of this one. For example the good Admiral Mullen mulls over what real men would do as he speaks to us from the good ship Lollipop.

Raw story has the story.

The US naval chief said Thursday he thought US military personnel would have fought against Iranian forces and not been taken prisoner as were 15 recently freed Britons.

Asked if a situation like the one faced by the British sailors and marines who were just released after being held by Tehran could have happened to US sailors, Admiral Michael Mullen, chief of Naval operations told CNN television: "My expectation is that American sailors are never seized in a situation like that.”

"Individuals and units are guided by the right of self-defense, they don't have to ask permission to take action to protect themselves. And they go into operations like this, and missions like this, with that understanding," he said.

Obviously those Brit marines were just wimps, surrounded and outnumbered, never the less wimps according to the heroic admiral Mullen. To the admirable admiral I would just say this.“Goo, goo, gah, gah. Do it hurt and have a temperature?” By God admiral that was spoken like a real man in a man’s world where American men are men, real men, real dead men.

Alas, thwarted again by the Iranians no less. Bush must be slipping as he obviously did not act swiftly enough on this one for surely the honor of the U.S. was at stake here and nary was a declaration of WMD heard. But fear not there is plenty of time to fabricate something along those lines.

The end result of all this is the Iranians look good and we look bad as the torture and abuse of prisoners continues at Gitmo and other places. Our genius leaders have egg on their collective faces.


Imagine that, those inferior and subhuman brown people got the better of the superior and morally magnificent Westerners which of course is why they need to be destroyed. You just cannot trust those Iranians.

Admiral Mullen reminds me of this Einstein quote.

"He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
