Well, those towel-headed neanderthals have actually done it. Iran sent a rocket into space.
We now know they have the ability to shoot an intercontinental ballistic missile. (C'mon, if they can shoot a multi-stage rocket into space, they put a nuke on one and point it toward Tel Aviv - or, I dunno, Washington ... London ... Paris ... Berlin. Remember, they only have to get close. Close counts with hand grenades and Thermo-Nuclear Warheads.)
These guys think that by fomenting genocide, they can hasten the arrival of the 12th Imam, their "Messiah", and get the world "right" ... depending on your definition of what's right, I guess. You think Obama's "stimulus plan" is scary? Try these wing-nuts with the bomb. Geithner's got nothing on these "twelvers"
Hey, I'm not suggesting Armageddon, and I'm not ready to hang out on the Circle, out in front of WIBC, wearing one of those sandwich boards. You know, the one with "The End is Near" hastily scrawled on cardboard. Still, I think somebody needs to point out that these guys actually launched a friggin' rocket and it didn't crash - or blow up on the launch pad.
I'm just sayin' ... we may have bigger problems.
