Gray Flannel Dwarf

Of course.

I find it quite amusing that, as news comes out that the newly-proposed Iraqi constitution stipulates that ‘no law can be passed that contradicts the fixed principles of Islam’s rulings‘, Pat Robertson goes apeshit on Chavez and word comes out that Iran wasn’t making nukes after all.

The disturbing part about all of this, of course, is that

1) We’ve lost 2000 US soldiers in an effort to turn a secular (albeit authoritarian) state into a religious one.
2) There are probably any number of Christians out there who will agree with and listen to Robertson, or at very least, sympathise and support him.
3) There is probably no one in the Bush administration who will agree with or listen to the international investigators in Iran. In all, it’s de ja vu all over again.
