Chutzpah And Gullibility

Here's how our foreign policy is manipulated:
Two Americans who played a major role in exposing Iran's secret nuclear weapons plans have been nominated for the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. United Nations Ambassador John Bolton and longtime Iran investigator Kenneth R. Timmerman were nominated for their repeated warnings and documentation of Iran's secret nuclear buildup and revealing Iran's "repeated lying" and false reports to the International Atomic Energy Agency. ...

Bolton and Timmerman were formally nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Sweden's former deputy prime minister and Liberal party leader Per Ahlmark. Ahlmark is meeting with journalists, opinion leaders and policymakers in Washington this week at the invitation of the Jewish Institute for National Security Afffairs (JINSA).

NOTE TO EDITORS: For further information or interviews with Ahlmark or Timmerman, contact Francie Israeli at 202-737-8400.
And here's evidence that this strategy works:
A recent poll showed that 57 per cent of Americans favoured military intervention to stop Iran building a bomb.
I guess a good stock tip would be companies that make coffins and body bags. Just one minor note: the Romans fought with the Persian empire for centuries. Rome never won, and lost a lot of troops and treasure in the sand. A mighty nuclear-armed American empire may kill more of them, but it won't conquer them either. Please give us commercial space travel soon, so that we can get very far away from all this madness.
