Heard a good joke last night that I will share. This joke is apparently making the rounds in Tehran. A senior ayatollah was asked if the United States will attack Iran. “Definitely not,” he replied. “But President Bush has vowed that Iran will not have a nuclear program and he insists that he will use his military to stop us if necessary,” came the reply. “It’s like this,” explained the ayatollah, “Mr. Bush invaded Afghanistan and set up an Islamic Republic. He invaded Iraq and set up an Islamic Republic. Iran already has an Islamic Republic so there is no reason for him to attack us.”
