IRANIAN MULLAHS NEED WAR



A week ago I watched the 2005 documentary called Nose, Iranian Style. It focuses on the enormous popularity of nose jobs there. Seems frivolous, nothing more than frivolous fashion obsessed young (men and women) remaking the one part of their bodies visible to strangers.

Then came the interview with a Mullah. He explained what a great blessing the Iran - Iraq war was to the revolution and how engaged that generation was with"shadeda" martyrdom. He was not the only one to miss the good old days. Some of the parents felt the same.

Well, they are recreating them. Iran is in the midst of a" cultural revolution" and like the Chinese one it followed a period of relaxation when a thousand flowers bloomed. The only question remaining is do the Mullahs believe that mobilization for war is enough or do they need actual fighting? As was the case with Japan, economic warfare may just be the prelude for a shooting war. I hope appearances not withstanding, we are getting ready.
