We must overcome our self-delusions about the enemy.
When tens of thousands of Iranians took to the streets last spring and braved the most brutal repression the regime could inflict, Michael Ledeen was the least surprised man in Washington. In season and out, Ledeen has chronicled the profound weakness of the mullahocracy and its deep unpopularity with the Iranian people. Impatiently, year after year, he has identified opportunities for the United States to help the people of Iran replace their sinister and menacing rulers. After each new post on the subject, Ledeen signed off with, Faster please.
In Accomplice to Evil, Ledeen seems almost out of patience. The failure to grapple with the challenge of Iran is more than a strategic failure, he argues; its a moral failure. Just as few in the democratic countries took Adolf Hitler at his word when he repeatedly promised to dominate the world and kill all the Jews; and few could squarely acknowledge the genocidal lengths to which the Communists would go; so today the threat from the radical Islamists is minimized, whitewashed, or wished away.

POtuS is one of them?
Too much like looking into a mirror for the zero.
Answer = Obama
Our dear reader likes the terrorists.
Because the only option we have left is direct military action, and we sure as hell aren’t going to see that in the next three or so years.
Several related quotes:
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
“Whoever says to the guilty ´You are innocent,´ peoples will curse him and nations denounce him. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come upon them.”
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”
Well hang onto your sox.
Someone will act and in the meanwhile for the rate of development the problem is exponentially growing.
It would be ice if America could stand up again and be a leader as well as world policeman to make sure there is a continued peace.
This single shithole is going to be responsibe for many millions of lives and wars.
BO hates this country more than he hates Iran....
Obama is too busy confronting the real enemy - Honduras.
Because, Mona...our President wants them to succeed.
Cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck, cluck!!!
The Iranians that took to the streets were mostly city-living leftists, not country-living conservatives. Nobody will be throwing roses at us if we attack Iran on behalf of their socialists.
Then again, we may see directl military action by Israel and perhaps others. The Israeli Foreign Minister was a critical Arab country on the Gulf last week, which fears Iran and would make an excellent launch point for any attack on Iran.
BTW - this is one of those poor "country-living conservative" villagers bringing roses to Americans who helped provide food & aid after the devestating Bam earthquake 6 yrs ago. They got very little help from their own gov't.
I'll suggest though, that five times every day, we should be able to sneak up behind our respective imamocrats and kick them in thier Mecca-facing butts.
It won't have much strategic impact, but it will offer emotional satisfaction.
Based on security around Imamobama, we shouldn't have any trouble accomplishing this on our end.
