RITTER IN A RUT

 

Scott Ritter, the man who argues with himself, in February 2005:

Ritter said that President George W. Bush has received and signed off on orders for an aerial attack on Iran planned for June 2005.

Ritter, February 2006:

“We just don’t know when, but it’s going to happen.”

Ritter, April 2008:

“I think we’ve never been at a greater risk of American military action against Iran.”

      It don’t take a psychic to see a noose in that piece of filth’s future.

    1. I think we’ve never been at a greater risk of American military action against Iran

      I wish.

      Unfortunately, I predict it will be left to Israel, just as it was when Saddam Hussein nearly went nuclear.

      They will save the world from a nuclear-armed psychotic Islamist, but will they get any credit? No.

    1. John was the ‘funny’ Ritter.
      Scott is clearly the ‘WTF?’ Ritter.

    1. Predictably, someone here is likely to suggest that we should nuke Iran and plant oranges.

      To me this just demonstrates the height of ignorance – haven’t you people ever heard of mandarines or tangelos?

    1. So sure – the guy has an extended history of being wrong, allegedly took bribes from a blood-thirsty dictator, and wants to masturbate in front of kids at fast food restaurants. I say we hear him out.

      And when Baby Doc Assad nearly went nuclear earlier this year.

    1. An interesting article from that bastion of the right Gerald Henderson: Libs will always languish without intellectual brawn

      It would be interesting to see what people who support the Liberals think of this article which paints the current bunch of Liberals as bashing the Howard legacy and being intellectially inferior to the liberal/social democrats (Labor).

    1. #8, MM:

      Screw oranges! Well, not literally, but metaphorically. But, seriously!! We’ve got oranges out the wazoo.

      What we need more of are loquats.

      Turn Iraq into one giant, huge, massive and large loquat forest, or grove, or whatever it is called where loquats congregate.

      We’ve got a couple loquat tree bushes. Nice, mellow tasting fruit. Makes fantastic jelly and preserves.

      The world is ready for loquats. Setting up the friable lands formerly known as Iran as loquat production zones would go a long way toward properly glutting the world market for loquats and loquat associated products.

      You know the drill. We can’t go stomping around in foreign devil lands and get all conquery unless there’s something to pillage. In Iran’s case, it can be land for planting and a whole new market to get all hegemony on.

    1. Loquats, oranges, tangelos, mandarins – who cares what grows, as long as the place won’t grow any more terrorist/splodeydopes.

    1. #14 – libs have fewer think tanks because we don’t need people to think for us.  We do our thinking for ourselves.

      Progressives have outsourced their thinking.  Bracks might as well start up his new think tank in Bangalore.

    1. Why are you lot so fixated on fruit trees?

      How are the squirrels going to eat?  How about we think about some nut trees.  We depend on Secret Attack Squirrels for all our intelligence on Iranian nuclear ambitions.  The least we can do for the furry little fellows is give them a lifetime supply of nuts for their retirement.

      Nuts….. speaking of Ritter…

      #24 Pickles,

      totally agree.

    1. Like many prophets of DOOOOOOM!, they keep repeating the prophecies. Eventually something happen s, and they claim a hit, conveniently forgetting the huge collection of misses.

      In the current case, however, the sooner an example is made, and we say “enough is enough”, the better. People forget that throughout history it has taken a strong power to settle things down.

    1. The US was at far greater “risk” of a military conflict with Iran when Dhimmi Carter sent an underfunded, under-equipped, under-trained military mission to Iran to rescue the diplomtic corps

    1. #23 Nuts?  Did you ever wonder why people aren’t allergic to cashews in the same way they are to peanuts?  That would be because cashews aren’t nuts!

      Sorry – I only found that out the other day, and I’m still getting used to it.

      Actually I wouldn’t mind America taking the path of Europe and Japan and letting someone else do the hard work.  Allow that country to sacrifice its citizens and treasure, with not one word of appreciation or support being expressed.  I nominate Belgium.

    1. Scott Ritter has successfully predicted three of the last zero U.S. military attacks on Iran, but Paul Krugman has successfully predicted at least 10 of the last zero recessions.

      And one day they may both be right!

      #18 They’re asking who would want to operate on this piece of filth. I would, gladly. Don’t know hardly anything about cardiac surgery but what the heck, there’s always a first time. I’d even do it blindfolded.
