Polistra and friends salute Patient Persia.
When you're an eminently sane and sophisticated country, with great natural resources, and with a YOUNG SMART HIGHLY EDUCATED population, wouldn't you think the world would want you to be part of the action?
Nope. For 30 years the Western world kept Persia in exile, solely because Our Most Noble Lord And Prophet Binyamin Netanyahu had clanging crashing screeching voices in his tiny filthy grotesque vermin-infested calvarium that told him "PERSIA IS BAD MKAY".
For mysterious reasons, the Obama administration finally decided to parole Persia from Our Prophet's private psychotic nightmare.
Now that Patient Persia has been paroled, it's not losing any time. The window of freedom could close at any moment, so Persia is lining up a quick series of faits accomplis. Alliance with Russia, the other big exile; deals with Italy and France to set up manufacturing plants in Persia; deals with China to supply oil.
Trying to lock in as many contracts as possible, so Persia's young and talented population will be commercially and legally indispensable.
Our primary salute really belongs to Obama and Kerry for mysteriously commuting the sentence, but we've already saluted them directly.
The ONE GOOD THING that Obama has done, and it's a BIG GOOD THING.
This secondary salute is to Patient Persia for knowing how to be IMPATIENT when it counts. Most people and countries squander similar opportunities, either failing to recognize the proper course of action, or failing to get UP AND RUNNING, or just not giving a fuck about the welfare of their OWN PEOPLE.
