Rosie O’Donnell just compared the capture of British soldiers by Iran with the Gulf of Tonkin. She implied that their capture was intentionally staged by the Brits to justify a future full-scale war with Iran.

The only apt comparison here is that Rosie O’Donnell’s ego is as fat as the Gulf of Tonkin. See Newsbusters for the story.

We’ll have the video a little later so bookmark and return.

…there were 15 British sailors and Marines who apparently went into Iranian waters and they were seized by the Iranians. And I have one thing to say: Gulf of Tonkin, Google it. Okay.

…it’s very interesting too that, you know, these guys, they went into the water by mistake right at a time when British and American, you know, they’re two, they’re pretty much our biggest ally and we’re considering whether or not we should go into war with Iran.

The Gulf of Tonkin, of course, refers to the (possibly) theatrical staging of events that led us into the Vietnam War. We learned later that Lyndon Johnson doubted that the aggressive acts for the North Vietnamese actually occurred.
