"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Disenfranchised Weekly: The Iran Situation

Disenfranchised Weekly: The Iran Situation

"Don't post on his blog and tell him they don't (want nukes)." For some reason this guy doesn't have a hard time with reality like many do.

I suppose you can post on this blog and tell me they don't, but you would still be wrong. There are those that refuse to believe what is right in front of their eyes and prefer to believe that if we only had a different administration everything would be alright again; still have a problem believing Iran wants nukes. Some might not truly believe Iran doesn't want nukes, but understands their want, due to the present administration. Some are countries like China and Russia, that don't really care if Iran wants nukes because they can only see their own immediate economic interests. Some, like the U.N., after their "accomplishment" with Iraq, believe they can prevent Iran from obtaining/creating nukes. Some (many) in the MSM feel there is a better way to deal with Iran, Iran doesn't really want nukes but has not choice and again it is all the administrations sabre rattling that is at fault.

Everyone knows there "were no WMDs" in Iraq, so therefore Iranian bluster is just that; bluster.


Iran may not want nukes, but what would the world be like if they did ? I posted about the OpinionJournal when it asked this question back on February 3rd, that, '"Ahmadinejad has publicly mused that the Jewish state should be "wiped off the map,"' and '"Iran's current leaders seem possessed of an apocalyptic Islamist vision that wouldn't mind an episode of pan-global martyrdom."' News of late has revealed that Iran is quite involved in instigating the 21st century's Ink-quisition; if not with other Arab nations, then with their "International Cartoon Contest."

This is being referred to by many names in the media, one of which is a clash of civilizations. Some, like Lee Harris disagree with this assessment; with the case being it takes two civilizations to clash and since "the West is not even remotely interested in mounting a defense of its values in the face of Muslim fanaticism," we therefore do not truly have a clash.

Ultimately, Iran and it's leadership are nothing more than bullies; bullies that won't back down if you swing at them as their overt fanaticism is like the suicide bombers knapsack. I don't think they would mind the stone age at all, because it may as well be that long ago that that part of the world had any real power other than oil of course.

Trust me, they want nukes.
