"We share the same biology..."

Medpundit wonders, as I do, just what the Iranians would do with nuclear weapons.

On such occasions I might sometimes consult people with political outlooks different from my own. One such person is Gordon Sumner, aka Sting. He has been quiet lately, but I have an idea of what he might say - re the Cold War he hoped the Russians love their children too.

Well, never let it be said that the Iranians don't love their children. For instance, some Iranians were appalled that when their kids were sent into minefields to clear them, they were blowing up into scattered unidentifiable pieces.

So they changed the policy to wrap the kids up in blankets first, and then they roll across the minefields. They still go boom, but now the body parts stay together for an easier burial.
