and how to attack the Iranian nuclear facilities, I thought that the
very best global political and strategic commentary on the situation
actually comes from Tuco the Mexican bandit, played by Jewish actor
Eli Wallach, in the classic movie, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly."
As you recall, Tuco is in his bathtub filled with soap foam when the
assassin comes in and starts telling Tuco how long he has been hunting
him and why. Tuco shoots him from within the foam and proclaims:
"If you are going to shoot, shoot. Don't talk!"
