Pot Meet Kettle
Dear King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia,
I've been following with some amusement these WikiLeak releases of U.S. diplomatic cables in which you and your buddies repeatedly urge us to attack Iran in order to destroy its nuclear weapons program.
You all have been mighty vocal in your across-the-board opinion that Iran's leadership is evil, an existential threat, and will only lead us into a wider war in the region. The only way to stop this threat, you believe, is to cut off the head of the snake, by which I assume you mean Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Look, I agree with you. As far as Ahmadinejad is concerned, the fact that 1982 keeps calling to ask for its Members Only jacket back can only mean one thing, and it's not stability of mind. Then again, look at you guys. All that bulk around the middle? Not flattering.
Still, how about a little quid pro quo, here? We'll give you Ahmadie if you give us your boy.
