Something is going on when you’ve got both the Russians and NATO talking preemptive nuclear strikes. I’m not sure what this relates to yet, though there is some speculation that it is Iran, but it’s almost as if nuke-talk is the brand new centerfold. She’s hot, she’s edgy. She’s an ICBM, baby!
Better keep an eye on that little minx. She’s going places. (A lot of nervous military analysts would die to know where.)
For some serious, and very sober analysis of the NATO manifesto, check out this excellent article at The Belmont Club. If you’re wondering what the other options are beyond the Global War on Terror, which Bush has forced along by himself, look no further. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this soon. Particularly from the left, they’ll be screaming.
Right Wing Nut House examines it all further.
Allahpundit over at Hot Air sees it as all hat, no cattle.
Exit question: Anyone see a western political consensus authorizing preemptive nuke strikes developing anytime soon, especially after the Iraq WMD debacle? More to the point, does anyone think Iran or Pakistan sees that consensus developing soon? If not, where’s the deterrence?
