Oh the horror!


Greg Sargent is all offended because Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs has sort of advocated the assassination of three of the most heinous dictators in the world.

.those targets, of course, being Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Now you may think that taking out dictators is unwise. It is certainly illegal. But it sure doesn't sound to me like something to get worked up over. I would shed no tears if any of those men were taken out. All three of them are responsible for the deaths of Americans. The fact that there are people in this country who are adamantly opposed to justice does concern me, however. And notice how they are all on one side of the political spectrum?
