Like A Fucking rhino In A China Shop

The US is the fucking rhino. The Shrine of Ali Hussain is one big china cup full of boiling hot anger juice. There's shelling, and they're dropping bombs. BOMBS. I don't care if they're laser guided or placed gently on a target with little notes saying. "Sorry we're bombing your holy monument. <3 BFF US Army." No one is going to care once shit gets broken. Yeah the Sadrists are assholes for using the mosque as a fort. But we're doing exactly what they want. They WANT us to incinerate the place. No one is going to care who was there first or who started it. Or rather they will care. They'll be martyrs. People will be carying Sadr's portrait around the country while the hundreds of outraged Shiits with guns flood around them shoot things until they're not moving anymore. If Sadr is killed and/or the Mosque is damaged you might as well call in the choppers. There won't be anything to do except massacer everyone, and no one should even be thinking about planning that right now. But I'm sure we'll see a Headline "US Plans To Shoot on Site In Case of An Uprising." The accompaning story will reveal a memo from the Justice Department to the Pentagon on the legalities of killing large amounts of people when they're really fucking mad at you. And now Iran is getting in on the act - well even more in on the act.

Allow me to switch into conspiracy mode for a moment. If Iran does get involved we could see an instintainious expantion of the war to include Iran. I am of the opionion that the neocons are crazy enough to do just about anything at this point. They're probably also really pissed about Iran feeding them disinformation through Chalabi. I think its safe to say that these guys can hold a grudge. And this only surfaced about 4 months ago. So on the off chance that something happens and there's an uprising and Iran interviens, I don't think the neocons will waste any oportunity to try and turn it around and push back. Hard. Not only will the troops have to hold their ground, but they'll have to advance into Iran. There's barely enough troops to maintain order in Bagdad. So it might come down to just bombing whatever the fuck we feel like, and if we happen to hit Iran's nuclear facilities, well shucks, we just got lucky. Oh and a draft asap. This is a god damn nightmare.
