Bulldozer Welfare

This weekend....the story from got some minor notice but likely most of you didn't really catch this.

Apparently, Ammi-dang-ding-dong tasked his boys to dig 320,000 graves for the impending US deaths as we "attack" Iran.

The amusing you read this story....all of the graves are in far-off districts and as far out as you can possibly get. Apparently, they paid up every bulldozer operator in the countryside in some welfare-style method to just start digging and had some magic number they told the press about.

I can pretty much see a typical Iranian bulldozer operator....holding out his hand....and quoting a huge amount of money and some government arguing about just digging a 3-foot pit.....and the dozer guy is quoting some offical local document saying the pit has to be nine foot deep. The deeper of course.....the more digging required and the more the dozer idiot makes off this deal. They'll waste three weeks digging what could have been done in sixteen hours.

So all of these dozer guys are smiling to the bank as they deposit this welfare check of sorts.....digging stupid pits for Ammi-dang-ding-dong.

The curious that none of these are near Tehran.....thus Ammi-dang-ding-dong is showing that the lousy Americans will never get that close.

The second curious thing....there are NO pits or graves dug whatsover for Iranian troops. As 320,000 Americans die on the Iranian Iranians will ever die. Sounds good on paper, I must admit.

Then we have the last curious thing....if you were in the Iranian army.....watching these dozer guys dig these'd start to get worried....thinking this might happen. Guys in the third world military structure.....don't like excitement like this. They've signed up to quickly get their time out of the way, and really don't want any issues like this war business.

The dozer guys are the ones who are happy and likely sipping lots of whiskey over this deal. Somewhere down the line....five or six years from now....another welfare dozer program will come fill all of the stupid Ammi-dang-ding-dong grave holes. This is where dozer operators will smile as they make money going, and coming. Not a bad life for a dozer dude in Iran.
