These tables don't turn

John Cole, noting the sudden “don’t cross me, Mahmoud!!” statement from Hillary, asks a really damn good question:

Are the roles reversed anywhere else in the civilized world- is there some place where candidates, on their respective national television channels, play out their war fantasies in which they nuke the United States?

What’s amusing about this is that even Iran doesn’t make this kind of threat. Most they say referring to the US is “if you invade us, we’ll make you regret it”, and that comes out of a position of fear and weakness anyway, akin to threatening to throw a sock at someone if they don’t stop beating your wife.
