"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

MEMORANDUM from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad - as translated by James S. Robbins

Alright, so it wasn't so much translated as it was written by Mr. Robbins.

A satirical memo; that unfortunately isn't that much of a stretch from reality.

From National Review Online:

From: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

To: The Believers

Date: Rajab 27, 1427

Re: Armageddon

Everyone, no need to remind you that the big day is upon us. As I have always said, our revolution’s main mission is to pave the way for the reappearance of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi.

From the beginning of time, humanity has longed for the day when justice, peace, equality and compassion envelop the world. When that day comes, the ultimate promise of all divine religions will be fulfilled with the emergence of a perfect human being who is heir to all prophets and pious men. He is the Promised One, that pure human being who will fill this world with justice and peace.

For the rest....go here....
