Last week’s asshole of the week, Tom Cotton, is on the verge of becoming a very young asshole emeritus. His belligerence about Iran is abundantly known, you have to wonder what he’s compensating for already. Cotton actually did serve in Iraq, so he’s not a chicken hawk. No, Cotton is somebody who served but learned nothing from his experience. His mentality is like Ted Cruz in that his conservative beliefs are so strong no amount of reality can challenge them.
Today he made the first move in what I’m sure will be a campaign to make war with Iran seem like a cakewalk. You know we’ll be welcomed as liberators, right?
“It would be something more along the lines of what President Clinton did in December 1998 during Operation Desert Fox. Several days air and naval bombing against Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction facilities for exactly the same kind of behavior. For interfering with weapons inspectors and for disobeying Security Council resolutions. All we’re asking is that the president simply be as tough as in the protection of America’s national security interest as Bill Clinton was.”
It would just be some bombs and nothing else to muss our hair with. Oh, so you don’t want regime change Senator? Why do you hate America?
By the way Cotton is being advised by none other than neo-con loser Douglas Feith. once referred to by General Tommy Franks as “the dumbest fucking guy on the planet.”
