Ex-Klansman Democrat Robert Byrd interviews incoming US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, who cheerfully invites everyone in the world to pile on hard and take the war to the next level.
BYRD: Do you support — now, we hear all these rumors about the potential for an attack on Iran due to its nuclear weapons program, or on Syria due to its support of terrorism.At least he's not Rumsfeld, eh? Boy, the TV sure convinced me that guy was scary and uncool. For a while there it was like the 60s never even happened. I doubt he even liked rock and roll music.
BYRD: What about an attack on Syria? Would you briefly describe your view of the likely consequences of a US attack on Syria?Lots more suicidally reckless hand-tipping in the exchange; I can't find a full transcript but here's a start.
Excuse me now, I have to go now and smear honey all over myself so I can go make friends in the bear pit at the Toronto Zoo. One day I hope to run a defence department.
