Funniest (saddest?) article from the great V.D.Hanson!

I couldn’t stop laughing but, at a certain point, wasn’t sure if I was laughing or crying:

Here’s a tutorial for up-and-coming thugs abroad:

Remember: Wear anything but a suit and tie. The Iranian no-tie look impresses a lot of Americans, as it “makes a statement” that you are not part of a global conformist class, but instead deliberately challenge the norms of bourgeois dress.

Try the perpetual three-day beard, Arafat-style, as if you’re always shaving in the field with your comrades. Next best is mangy facial hair,
à la Ahmadinejad, which suggests you once were an artist, novelist, or dissident of some sort.

Get on as many U.N. committees as possible. The more slots you have on the Human Rights Commission and its appendages, the more you can imprison. Send a few goons to serve on a U.N. peacekeeping force. They’ll like the money and sex, and it wins you cover later on.

Jew-hating is always a win-win situation: Don’t laugh: “The Jews did it” still works. Ask Ahmadinejad about last week.

Read it all!
