“We’re essentially headed for a major conflict with Iran that won’t end nicely so we have to figure out how to defeat Iran. The earlier you defeat them, the earlier you bring the regime down, the less of a cost this war will eventually bring.”
Middle East Forum March 6, 2008
Every time I read David Wurmser’s name I thank God the Bush-Cheney cabal is in such tatters that Wursmer got the boot and these guys can’t realize their evil, warmongering ambitions. But like the boogeyman which parents used to trot out to warn their children not to stray too far from parental protection, it’s instructive to remind ourselves what these people COULD do if they ever got power back.
So thanks to the Middle East Bulletin for offering this scary quotation and to Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum for giving this lunatic the platform to spout his delusional fantasies of Islamophobic End Times. The passage quoted above isn’t contained in the printed summary of his talk but must be contained in the audio version linked on the same page.
I was going to call this post “Wurmser Bangs the Drum Slowly for Iran War,” but thought it might be too obscure. It is, however worth remembering the lyrics of the verse:
Bang the drum slowly
And play the fife lowly,
Play the death march
As they lower you down
This is surely a chronicle of death foretold should we be foolish enough to try to realize Wurmser’s ambitions for war.
