"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

OpinionJournal - Featured Article

What would a nuclear armed Iran be like? More people should be concerned about this, especially those involved in negotiations.

An example of moral relativisms ignorance of reality, '""I would sleep happier if there were no Iranian bomb," writes former Times of London editor Simon Jenkins. "But a swamp of hypocrisy separates me from overly protesting it." Iran, he adds, "is a proud country that sits between nuclear Pakistan and India to its east, a nuclear Russia to its north and a nuclear Israel to its West. . . . How can we say such a country has 'no right' to nuclear defense?" In other words, what's the big deal?"'

'"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."'

I mention Hitler, no so much for his hatred of Jewish people, but the similarity of those that ignored "Mein Kampf," and it's laying out of his intentions and the 24 hour news cycle laying out of present plans with statements like, '"We must prepare ourselves to rule the world and the only way to do that is to put forth views on the basis of the Expectation of the Return."'

It's all in black and white.
