Deja vu man!

For me, Cuban Missile Crisis during my early years and now a Venezuelian Missile Crisis moving toward the end.

I was thinking about something similar this morning.

I watched a contrail pass over this morning. The conditions were perfect.

Then, I got a "prickly hair" thing on the back of my neck and remembered the old times, during the Cold War, during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the testing of air raid sirens and Duck and Cover.

OK, Hugo give it a try. Iran isn't the Soviet Union. I would guess if you were to launch one at the Great Satan, we wouldn't have much of a problem making glass out of the sand in Iran.

Let us hope they do not receive their IRBMs before January, 2013. By then, chances are Chavez will be dealing with a very different American administration.
