"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

Madmen Shouldn't Play with Matches

The moment Iran has the capability to create nuclear weapons, the world will change. The moment Iran creates nuclear weapons life will not be the same, like it was on September 12, 2001. Those that choose to believe that a nuclear Iran can be handled (an msm-loved and revered retired general, along with a lot of people), the greater threat to the world is George Bush or any other opinion that avoids possible recognition of the administrations side of the debate; please don't be surprised when much of it comes to fruition, you just weren't listening.

From Family Security Matters:

"One of the more surprising things about Iran and the visit of its president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is that Bush administration’s unwillingness to lay out the case of Iran’s unusual complicity with al Qaeda. I say unusual only because Shi’ite governments do not often make common cause with Sunni radicals, although tactical alliances among non-state actors is not so unusual.

But, it seems, if the cause is big enough, tactical alliances can be made and endure. Hatred for the United States and a shared desire to create Islamist states seem to be enough in this case to unite the old guard of al Qaeda with the Ahmadinejad regime. The tactical alliance is not new, but it is passing strange that, in light of the relationship, the current administration does not focus more explaining the Iranian threat.

This alliance alone is enough to negate Ahmadinejad’s request to visit Ground Zero in New York. He scored tactical points by making the request and having it denied, although it would be akin to allowing an accomplice to lay a wreath at the grave of the victims."
