Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) explains the Iraq war by citing Lord of the Rings: “As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum told a newspaper editorial board. “It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S. You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”
Clearly a serious thinker when it comes to solving sectarian violence. Really, what Rick is saying here is that the hobbits do not reflect the thinking of white anglo christians, or perhaps the Eye doesn't. Anyway, all of them should be killed, or perhaps brought back to the US, or left in Iraq.
Maybe he is just an idiot who sees clear foreign policy through the land of make believe.
