Who is this dipstick?
U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman has just explained that an attack on Iran will not involve ground troops. In fact reading his words, it all looks a bit of a doddle. Hit a few targets from the air, everything over in a few days, all very easy-peasy. That's a relief!
I was rather worried that the Iranians would charge out and catch the American army all spread in in bite sized chunks all across Iraq, or use their Chinese supplied anti-ship missiles to block the Straights of Hormuz. Hell - maybe they could do both at the same time and turn Hezbollah loose against Israel as well as sending suicide teams to make London look as like it did after a rather bad air raid in 1940.
However, now that the Senator has spoken we can all rest assured that the Iranians will play by Washington's rules and will accept the air attacks on their country without retaliating in any way, shape or form.
