THE IRAN PROBLEM: WHO WILL BELL THE CAT?

The linked post by Victor Davis Hanson speaks of the problem of what to do about Iran's nuclear ambitions. He makes reference to the last time the world had a problem with a middle eastern madman's attempts to gain a nuclear weapon (Saddam Hussein) and how Isreal "Belled the Cat" for us by blowing his reactors to hell.

For those of you who received a public education after 1965, the "Bell the Cat" reference is to Aesop's fable about the rats who wanted to put a bell on the cat so that they would be warned when the cat was in the vicinity. The ending is that no rat would try. Moral of the story is this: everyone wanted a bell on the cat, but no one wanted to be the one who attempted the deed.

Sound familiar?

Let us flash forward to the day after George W. Bush takes the nuclear weapons out. (Does anyone seriously doubt that he will?) Let us review what will have been said by our great leaders of the loyal?? opposition:

Thadeous Kennedy: "George W. Bush again, again, and again has made an Ass out of me by doing what I warned him again, again and again not to do. Uh, excuse me, I have to leave the floor to take a driving lesson"

Jon Francios Kerry: "I was against the bombing of Iran before I was for it. Or, was that I was for the bombing of Iran before I was against it? Can't seem to keep my stories straight. Why,I remember when I personally bombed the Cambodian's nuclear facility. But I digress, I say to the American people that President Bush should not be terrorizing the mullahs by bombing, cutting of thier ears...Blah, Blah, Blah.

Di Fienstein: "What will this do to the Iranian women's right to an abortion, oh.., er..., right to choose?"

Babs Boxer: (momentarily waking up from her normal brain dead condition). "Where is Iran?"

Howard Dean: "eeeiiiggghhh"

Hillarious Clinton: "I will make no comment about the bombing until all my husband's focus groups tell me what to say"

The above remarks will be remembered as some of the most intelligent ones by Democrats on that fateful day.

GWB will make the following remark: "Yea, I did it and I will do it again, if necessary"

Which of the remarks will the news media praise? The first six

Which remark will the American public applaud? The last one, of course
