A suicide bomber killed 31 people today, including five or six senior members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Among the remaining dead were other Guard members, or local tribal leaders, and several dozen others were wounded. The story can be found here and here. Besides the Iranian leadership getting a small dose of their own medicine, what was really interesting is that Reuters quoted the Fars News Agency as blaming the bombing on terrorists backed by “the Great Satan America and its ally Britain,” even though a local Sunni group called Jundollah (God’s soldiers), claimed responsibility. According to Fars, a spokesman for Iran’s armed forces claimed Obama is backing the Jundollah in an effort to cause instability in the region.

Not in the distant future, we [Iran] will take revenge…

Of course, our State Department denies any involvement and condemned the attack.

Reports of alleged U.S. involvement are completely false.

Is this what Vice President Biden was talking about when he said the world would test Obama?  Probably not.  It will however damage the talks in Vienna due to begin tomorrow.  We know this because we can  use what we know of Iran’s leadership (i.e. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is flippin’ crazy) to come up with an educated guess of their intentions.  While I would not doubt Ahmadinejad is capable of hiring a bomber to kill his own people in a publicity stunt, and you must admit – the timing is perfect, whether he did or not is irrelevant.  He will use this to his advantage in two ways.  One, it will give him a reason to delay, cancel, or otherwise disrupt the talks being held to reign in Iran’s nuclear arms program.  Claiming one of the nations at the table just killed some of your crew will put a damper on negotiations.  Oh, to be a fly on the wall.  Two, he will also use this to foster additional hatred against the West, and America in particular.  This will make it easier to drum up popular support for an all out war against us, should Obama do what is necessary to eliminate the threat posed by a nuclear armed Iran.

Since Iran’s army is a bit lower class than Saddam’s army, the fight – if you could call it that – would be over quickly, even with Obama’s ridiculous changes to our rules of engagement.  But Ahmadinejad doesn’t need to engage us directly.  He could easily use this as a recruiting tool to find hundreds, if not thousands, of suicide bombers to send against our interests in the Middle East, or against us directly back home.  I picture something like every Iranian driven cab in New York City blowing up simultaneously during rush hour…which would be almost all of them.

Any country crazy enough to lie to their population about the origins of a terrorist attack, to drive them into a frenzy against the most powerful country in the world either deserves the smackdown we would give them, or has an ace up their sleeve.  I trust Ahmadinejad about as far as I can throw a pregnant camel, but at least we can be sure of one thing: Obama had nothing to do with this bombing.  How do I know that?  If he had a suicide bomber at his disposal, and had the balls to use him, I think his target would be something much more prescient…like the Fox News Building.

Clueless!

“…those who are watching certain new channels, on which I’m not very popular…” Does he hear himself talking? Most Fox News Hosts just didn’t drink the Kool-Aid Il Duce, and they don’t disparage you (not like MSNBC did to Bush), they just report more of the truth than your sycophantic press core.

“…and you see folks waving tea bags around…” I didn’t see one person wave a tea bag. I did see many wave American Flags though.

“Let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term…” No, you’re not Barry – you are lying. You only want to ram your socialized health care down our throats. You won’t debate it, and Reid/Pelosi won’t debate it either. Cutting health care costs down is easy – let the market work. Allow competition to work. What you are going to do is eliminate competition, which will raise health care costs, and introduce artificial scarcity. And by the way, the Tea Parties had nothing to do with health care costs, although it was one of the subjects discussed.

“…How we’re going to stabilize Social Security…” Again, a flat out lie. Dems, and RINO’s have been lying about Social Security for more than five decades. It is a Ponzi Scheme and you know it. You fix it by eliminating promised benefits, pay out to those who need it, and getting rid of the program.

“…an audit of Federal Spending…” This one made me laugh Barry. I half expected to hear a snare drum and crash after this statement.

“…but let’s not play games and pretend that the reason [for the Tea Parties I assume] is because of the Recovery Act…” Ummm, yes it is, along with all the other debt you’ve saddled America’s children, and children’s children with. Then there is the socializing of private businesses, and we know you’re just getting warmed up.

Ugh, I can’t watch anymore…
