Disturbingly Ironic

Over at Llama Butchers is a link to China's recent comment about pre-emptively nuking America in a conflict over Taiwan, and the hopelessly naive statement: "It should come as a wake-up call to those living on the West coast most likely to get the brunt of any strike from China."

It's disurbingly ironic that the left-coasters most likely to freak out over missile defense are the most likely to get burned to a freakin' crisp when their Chinese ideological soul-mates push the button.

Maybe it's time for Hans to take the hint and move.

Incidentally, I asked Dave, my go-to guy for all questions nuclear, whether Las Vegas is within range of Chinese ballistic missiles, and he never answered me. Should I assume it's reluctance to be the bearer of bad tidings?
