Obama Can Win PR Battle By Engaging In *Nuclear* Battle With Iran (It's The Only Way)
Casual warmonger Daniel Pipes is as serious about this as he is that mustache.
The best reason to bomb Iran—the best reason to do anything at all—is for good publicity. It's the same mentality was instrumental in convincing Daniel Pipes' mustache to grow a human.
"He needs a dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a light-weight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations."
...and it's the same rationale that George W. Bush invoked in deciding to do 9/11:
"Just as 9/11 caused voters to forget George W. Bush’s meandering early months, a strike on Iranian facilities would dispatch Obama’s feckless first year down the memory hole and transform the domestic political scene. It would sideline health care, prompt Republicans to work with Democrats, and make the netroots squeal, independents reconsider, and conservatives swoon."
If Obama bombed Iran, it could be as successful as 9/11, if not more so.
