To the sea!

One of my faithful readers called me on the Hipphone today to ask, "Why, when we are fighting two land wars in Asia, will Feckless Leader (Bush, to you uninitiated) appoint an admiral to be the head of CENTCOM?"
The obvious answer, "Global warming is going to put large parts of Iraq under water any day now .", sprang to my lips and I left it at that, sending faithful reader upon his merry way.
Truth is, I didn't want to alarm the poor soul by saying that when the attack comes against the Iranians the big action is going to shift to the Persian Gulf. Yep, all those soldiers and marines are going to be little more than bystanders to the real action, if they're not out and out hostages or worse.
More later.
