"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

Political Party Poop - Zionist Regime a Threat - Scheduled for Annihilation

posted at Poop, cartoon is hilarity

As found by Poop, (referencing Reuters) at Breitbart, which references the AP; Iran is not to be trifled with.

"Iran's president said on Friday that the existence of the "Zionist regime", Iran's term for Israel, was a threat to the Islamic world, days after declaring Iran had become a nuclear power by enriching uranium."

President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has previously said that "Israel must be wiped off the map." His speech yesterday was toned down (I guess), "the existence of the Zionist regime is tantamount to an imposition of an unending and unrestrained threat so that none of the nations and Islamic countries of the region and beyond can feel secure from its threat." I have doubts that Iranians are shaking in their boots over a supposed threat that Israel poses. If Ahmadinejad and others (Mullahs, Hamas,....) kept their mouths shut and acted civilized the world wouldn't even know there was a problem. These guys live in a world of hatred, which they magnify with their middle ages rhetoric that does not speak to the reality of the present day.

However, in fairness to Ahmadinejad, "in February, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Ahmadinejad's comments last year had been misunderstood and that he had been speaking about the Israeli "regime" not the country. Mottaki had said a country could not be removed from the map." Phew, this is good to know, but is Israel even on any of their maps? Literally, a country could be removed from a map or gee, even have it's named changed if necessary, i.e. USSR.

Earlier today I made reference to Iran after reading a Mark Steyn column. Steyn is no idiot and he has painfully logical reasoning behind the reality of the Iranian regime.

The Iranian leadership is not going to let their "peaceful nukes" situation be resolved peacefully, unless of course we allow them to define peace.
