Thomas Friedman was named Atrios’ Wanker of the Decade precisely for saying stuff like this.
That was back in 2003 and lest you think that Friedman learned anything from telling other countries he doesn’t like to “suck on this”, here’s the advice he had for Barack Obama in 2008 in regards to Iran.
“Mr. Obama’s gift for outreach would be so much more effective with a Dick Cheney standing over his right shoulder, quietly pounding a baseball bat into his palm.”
Yes, because warmongering insanity worked so well last time around.
Wanker of the decade – a much deserved award.
