Hotter than a pepper sprout

The P-Boys are a bit feverish, it seems (ellipsis warning-they're omitted. Read the damn thing yourself if you're concerned):

You need a decisive stroke. You need to tip the table over. You need to attack.

Commandeer a half hour in prime time to tell the American people, and the world, that we have clear evidence of Iran's involvement in killing American servicemen. Show the captured munitions. Explain exactly how they have contributed to American casualties. Display aerial photos of the training camps. No doubt there is much more evidence that can be presented or described.

In the dramatic finale of your speech, announce that thirty minutes earlier, American airplanes stationed in the Middle East took off, their destination, one of the munitions plants or training camps of which you have shown pictures. That training camp, you say, no longer exists. You say that if Iran does not immediately cease all support for, and fomenting of, violence in Iraq, we will continue to strike military targets inside Iran.
A forceful and dramatic conclusion. But that isn't quite the end; instead, in the manner of Columbo or Steve Jobs, you add just one more thing: you declare that no nation that is engaged in killing American servicemen on the field of battle will be permitted to arm itself with nuclear weapons.

In the manner of Columbo?

Look, great idea. Love it all the way through. Bush ain't gonna do it. This is the guy who sat around for two years letting the New York Times spew propaganda and then validated it by firing Rumsfeld the day after the election. He takes Hindrakers advice, great. All is forgiven. But Bush is a man with his tail between his legs.
