Might as well ask...

Regarding the Big Spring, Texas refinery blast--seems this little tidbit was largely ignored by mainstream media reports:
Blake Lewis, spokesperson for Alon USA, said the last of the fires at the refinery were extinguished late Monday afternoon, allowing the Israeli-owned company to move into its next course of action.
Certainly accidents happen, and this was probably an accident. But after the death of Imad Mughniyeh and the resulting threats from Hizballah to exact revenge, and since Alon is an Israeli-owned company, is it really imprudent to ask?

Imprudent? No.
Impudent? You betcha.

"marked by contemptuous or cocky boldness or disregard of others"

Perhaps I brought the comments back too soon..

Well, of course the official view would be that asking questions like the one you raised is impudent.
Innit?

I was thinking the likely reaction would be a charge of fearmongering, since the Democratic saviors are coming and we have noting to fear but fear itself (and neocons) anymore.

Maybe impudent fearmongering?
