February 11th came and went, and maybe you didn’t realize the danger we were in. That was the day Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the evil American system (of capitalism) would collapse. I was in Wal-Mart that day, and the 7 isles of Valentine merchandise seemed to be moving pretty nicely.
Iran announces on that day the reasons we should all be afraid. First, they have been enriching uranium, to a level of 20%. That’s not enough to build a bomb, but they say they’re close. Secondly, Iran claims they will beat us in science. They launched a rocket into outer space carrying 1 rat, 2 turtles and a box of worms.
Okay Iran, welcome to the late 50’s. The United States has enough nuclear weapons to destroy the earth something on the order of 300 times. I mean the whole entire planet. Versus one bomb they can almost built. Apollo XI landed on the moon in 1969; with people. We’ve been back several times. We’ve landed two rovers on Mars. Today there is an International space station orbiting earth, manned by astronauts from the U.S., Russia, China and other countries. We supposed to fear Iran because (in the words of John Stewart) they’ve launched bait into outer space?
The bottom line is this: the American system of capitalism is not collapsing until China runs out of money. And what will Iran do after destroying America? Attack Israel. This guy has Moxie.
