  1. Sounds to me like you’re unjustifiably defending Ahmadinejad. Clearly, you need to read and study more of his words. Taken in context, there is a very real threat to Israel and other Middle Eastern countries if Iran gains nuclear power based on what he’s said alone. I can’t understand why you would defend him.

    Tossing in your cute “George and Dick Slim Strangelove” angle doesn’t do a thing for me. You’re defending Ahmadinejad. I just don’t see the motive, past the laughably trite progressive trend to rip Bush no matter what he does.

    I can’t wait until Hilary takes office. Then we can see how a Dem does things. I’m sure it won’t be fantastically better or worse than what we’re seeing now, and maybe all the junior bloggers can get a wake up call.

  2. That’s just lazy writing. I explicitly say I have no love for “that demagogue” and you interpret that to mean that I defend him.

    BTW, Ephraim Levy, former head of the Israeli Mossad delivered a speech covered in Haaretz yesterday saying that Israel could live with a nuclear Iran. Are you saying that yr judgment of the threat fr Iran to Israel is better informed than his?

    I have no love for Hillary. But if she does take office you can be damn sure our Iran policy will be a lot diff. than it is now.

  3. Whoever takes over the presidency in 2008, they are likely to be no better than Bush and could easily be worse. Bush is belligerent and autocratic, but dull and lazy. Whoever comes next will not give up any of the autocratic powers Bush has amassed and will perhaps use them with vigor and cunning. Think only dark-skinned people with an unpopular religion will be “gitmo’d”? Think again.

    Too, once the next Godzilla gets tired of killing Muslims, they are likely to turn on China, massacre me and my friends here. This isn’t about protecting Israel. It’s about 1) keeping the military-industrial complex going and 2) speeding up Armeggedon.

  4. Iran lives in a tough neighborhood. It is very important to remember that in 1980 Saddam Hussein launched against Iran a terrible war that claimed as many as a million lives. Didn’t Martin van Creveld say that the Iranians are crazy if they AREN’T developing nuclear weapons?

    Zhu, I fear you are correct if Giuliani wins next year – here’s hoping that doesn’t happen.
