Or even afivethought. Wrapped in the impenetrable armor of Hageean anti-anti-anti-semitism (as in, "I'm rubber [and I long for the rapture so all Jews can be incinerated in one final orgiastic holocaust], you're AN ANTI-SEMITIC NAZI!"), we place Iran's king in check with a pawn on the far side of the board. Against the rules of chess, you say? Not if the pawn IS PACKING NEUTRONS BY THE SCORE, AND PROTONS TOO! Nuclear weapons trump all rules, sez we, so SUCK ON THIS!TM*
