Crazy Dick

Bloodthirsty warmonger and raving lunatic Richard Cohen tries to start another war:

A question relating to Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program: Is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad crazy like Adolf Hitler, or is he crazy like, of all people, Richard Nixon?

Is Richard Cohen suffering from dementia, or does he have a massive drug and alcohol problem? Does Richard Cohen beat his wife for fun, or just out of rage? These are legitimate questions. 

(And before anyone protests that these unfounded accusations are rude, consider that Cohen is doing the same thing in an attempt to start a fucking war. The last time he did that, a million people died.)
Nixon had a term for his own sort of craziness: "I call it the Madman Theory, Bob," he said to his aideH.R. "Bob" Haldeman during the 1968 presidential campaign. Nixon was talking about how he would deal with the Vietnam War. "I want the North Vietnamese to believe I've reached the point where I might do anything to stop the war. We'll just slip the word to them that, 'For God's sake, you know Nixon is obsessed about communism. We can't restrain him when he's angry -- and he has his hand on the nuclear button.' " The strategy, while cunning, didn't work on the North Vietnamese. Maybe they were crazier than Nixon.
So, even though this strategy didn't work on the North Vietnamese, because they were crazy, we should use it Iran because...Ahmadinejad is crazy?

How did you get a job working for a newspaper, Dick?
Ahmadinejad is some version of crazy, too. His denial of the Holocaust is either proof of a drooling sort of insanity or a kind of Nixonian craziness designed to keep enemies and adversaries off balance: What will this guy do next?
Or maybe he's just trying to get the Iranian voters scared shitless of Jews, so that they won't notice how bad the Iranian economy is. You know that trick, right Dick? You and your neo-con friends do the same thing with Muslims. Does it make you crazy? No, it just means that you're power hungry, warmongering assholes. The difference between them and Ahmadinejad, of course, that the neo-cons actually start wars, while Ahmadinejad just talks a lot.
