While we behold the wonders of just who we as a country have not been spying on since 2001 (I’m guessing pretty much the ones we probably should actually be spying on) let us consider the wonders of this.

Recently there have been reasons to believe that there has been progress in our dealings with Iran and it’s nuclear program.  Progress to such an extent stories like this have come out.

Iran’s apparent new readiness to address international concerns about its atomic ambitions will be tested in talks with U.N. inspectors on Monday, with diplomats hoping for progress such as on access to a sensitive military site.

Well, we cannot have that.

On ABC’s ‘This Week’, host George Stephanopoulous asked Cheney about the effectiveness of diplomatic talks in Iran.

“Is military action against Iran inevitable?” he said.

“I have trouble seeing how we’re going to achieve our objective short of that,” Cheney said.

Always nice to see the undead’s perspective on things, of course, militarism has it’s business models, and a bankroll.

Republican Party mega-donor and casino mogul Sheldon Adelson caused quite a storm this week after it was reported that he suggested that the United States use nuclear weapons to get the Iranians to end their nuclear program.

Irony not only dead, but glowing.
