Bush to kill two birds with one stone?

Given that this report is accurate:
Small nuclear war could lead to cooldown
Some of the scientists who first advanced the controversial "nuclear winter" theory more than two decades ago have come up with another [forecast]

Using modern climate and population models, researchers estimated that a small-scale nuclear conflict between two warring nations would ... lead to a marked cooldown of the planet ...

... researchers say black soot from the fires [triggered by a nuclear exchange] would linger in the atmosphere, blocking the sun's rays and causing average global surface temperatures to drop about 2 degrees Fahrenheit in the first three years. Although the planet would see a gradual warming within a decade, it would still be colder than it was before the war, the scientists said.
Bush could decide on a nuclear strike against Iran, pleasing the neocons and silencing critics who say he's done nothing to combat global warming.

It's a win for everybody.


It is time for a remake of Dr. Strangelove.

I think Mary Harron does a pretty good Kubrickian black-comedy style...see American Psycho, a smart, hilarious, but pitch-black film.

Unlikely that he would use that as a public reason for that would be admitting that there is such a thing as global warming. We all know of course that it is only a myth/hoax created by America-haters to destroy the US economically because it would be impossible by fair means.
