Anybody else jealous? DaYAMM! Imagine if the USA did that! My chest would be bursting with pride if the USA had executed the chief expert of say, al Qaeda’s bomb-making experts. Iran’s leader has declared that Israel has no right to exist and that it is his county’s goal to eliminate them. Oh, hey, as a side issue, they are also attempting to acquire nukes. And one of their top experts has just been assassinated. [Let’s take time here for hand-wringing for you liberals.]
Now what if it was the al Qaeda freaks’ top nuclear expert who was assassinated by the C.I.A. or whatnot? Would you be sad, or would you be howling at the moon, ready to drink to the last drop that ICE, COLD, bottle of silver tequila in your freezer?!! EXACTLY!
I just read my first Vince Flynn novel on an airplane the other day. Sheesh, it was written four or five years ago but this was exactly what it was about, Mossad and CIA trying to hurt/kill the Iranian nuke program. The CIA guy had no problem assassinating bad guys. In real life, I guess we blow them up with missiles and then pretends that’s not “assassination”, or maybe we just assist the Israelis and let ’em take the heat.
Also in Flynn’s book Protect and Defend, the exact fictional equivalent of the real-life Imad Mughniyeh (Hizbollah) gets it. This was written about two years before the real thing. Interesting…
