MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD: Insane at any speed

Iran has one week to comply with the U.N. Security Council deadline to cease uranium enrichment. That's going to be the big news this coming week. Tick. Tick. Tick.

Meanwhile, the United States has a full carrier battle group in the Persian Gulf complete with cruisers, destroyers, missiles and 70 aircraft. Three other international task forces are also in the gulf, with scores of ships and 20,000 personnel, according to NewsMax. A retired Air
Force general is quoted as saying we have more than enough fire power to wipe out Iran's nuclear and missile facilities with conventional bunker-buster bombs.

Maybe. Two problems, at least, with that, however. One is—even assuming the general is correct—finding all the targets. Obviously, just getting rid of some or even most isn't good enough. (Just like being a little pregnant, you can't really be a little nuclear.) Second is a point we made earlier and bears repeating: It may be a trap. President Mahmoud "Mojo" Ahmadinejad may already be in possession of nuclear contraband, just waiting for a chance to use it against us. (See Wednesday's post, "Don’t fall for his mojo.")

But neither can we just ignore this rabid lunatic. Mojo has just promised $50 million to Hamas to replace the funding cut off by the United States and European Union. He's also the main source of insurgency in Iraq, besides funding Hezbollah, manufacturing improvised explosive devices (IEDs) that are killing our soldiers, plus all kinds of miscellaneous mischief in Syria and Lebanon. We wouldn't be all that surprised to find that this is also where Saddam Hussein's WMDs went. Don't laugh. Remember where Saddam flew his air force during Desert Storm in 1991? Yep, across the border into formerly enemy territory in Iran.

And on top of that, the Associated Press reports that Mojo is threatening "annihilation" of Israel. All of this is designed to create maximum chaos and create the conditions conducive to Mojo's dream of the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi—the scenario we've been piecing together this week.

So, what to do? We think there's only one viable option: A surgical decapitation. Regime change. Mojo is such a high-profile character, it ought to be a lot easier to nail him with a smart bomb or cruise missile than to bust all the nuclear bunkers in the entire country. Mark Steyn is the fellow who first advocated this idea, and it's a good one. If anyone has a link to piece on this, forward it and we'll post it here.

Meanwhile, the RDR is taking suggestions for the next MSM mediocrat to profile when we're done with Mojo.

Since she is so popular right now - how about Dana Priest? Or Dana Milbank? Even better - Keith Olbermann...
