LeftyMN steered me to a piece in what is an obscure publication by U.S. standards (the Gulf Daily News out of Bahrain). They report that sophisticated Austrian rifles supplied to Iran are now showing up in Iraq. It has not been widely-publicized that Austria is an Axis of Evil wannabe.
I bring this up because it is only a matter of time before Bush's Eye of Sauron homes in on Austria. And the next thing you know, the hills will be alive with sound of Black Hawks.
That's the bad news. The good news is that turning attention to Austria would take the burden off the "I" countries for a while, which means that Ireland, Italy and Iceland could draw a collective breath of relief.
If we're going to start over at the beginning, then may I suggest we return our attention to cleaning up the mess we made in Afghanistan before we launch attacks on Angola or Antarctica?
Admit it. My hypothesis makes at least as much sense as Bush administration foreign policy. And I haven't been drinking. But I'm thinking about it.
