Droning On…

Last night I was on Alyona, talking drones and Iran:

    Which part did you play, Mr. Farley?

    Iran, or the talking drone?

        i understand they’re quite tasty, with milk, and some sugar sprinkled on top. they also provide a full day’s calcium requirement, and quite a bit of fiber.

        ok, i now understand why people watching the show had a difficult time focussing on you. consider an uglier partner next time.

  • Ya might want to rephrase that “on Alyona,” if you have a significant other who lurks the blog.

    You two had a point: it wasn’t until yesterday that I saw even the slightest glimmer of coverge on the USMSM of the war in Iran and only last week that I even started reading rumours of it on the web.

      …of the what?

    • Walt

      Uh, there’s no war in Iran (currently).

    • Let me get this straight: the shooting between al Qaeda and the US military isn’t a war, but aerial reconnaissance over Iran is a war.

      Have I got that right?

      • rea

        No, aerial reconassance might be a violation of Iran’s soveriegnty, but it would not, itself, be a war.

        But Alyona also references a myterious explosion, the disappearance of a nuclear scientist, and a computer virus attack. If we are indeed behind all these things, that’s a war, or at least, close enough for government work.

  • Best straight line ever.

    Next time, put a light on your desk or something. Using just the overheads makes you look like the Emperor’s cousin.

      Seriously. Raccoon eyes are no way to go through life.

    Remember to sit on your coattail to prevent the jacket from rising up in back. I learned that watching “Broadcast News”.

    But don’t worry, you’ve got Albert Brooks beat by miles.

    The Russians don’t let you wear a hat?

    What’s with the reluctance to state that as part of the covert campaign Iranian scientists are being assassinated? Alyona mentioned scientists “disappearing” – a bizarre way of phrasing it in this context. Does RT think that its US audience is too delicate for this to be mentioned?

    I would, however, take issue with the notion that the US can continue with its covert campaign for 5 or 6 years – sooner or later, and I would guess sooner, there’s going to be a real fuck-up involving non-deniable live bodies.
