Turner Screws Tighter, Cause He’s Got One Loose

In an interview for Charlie Rose’s PBS show, CNN founder Ted Turner shows how compatible with ex-wife ‘Hanoi’ Jane Fonda he really was.

For instance, here’s his thoughts on what will happen if global warming is not addressed immediately:

We’ll be eight degrees hottest in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.

And here’s what he thinks of the terrorists killing US soldiers in Iraq:

I think that they’re patriots and that they don’t like us because we’ve invaded their country and occupied it. I think if the Iraqis were in Washington, D.C., we’d be doing the same thing: we’d be bombing them too. Nobody wants to be invaded.

Here’s the interview for your viewing (dis)pleasure:

Note: While the interview was conducted on April 1st, there is no indication that it was an April Fools joke.

(hat tip: NewBusters, who have more examples of Turner’s wacky views)
